‘It’s just frustrating and annoying’: Comedian Tanya Hennessy gets emotional while talking about her fertility issues on The Project

An emotional Tanya Hennessy spoke about her struggle to conceive during a candid interview on Tuesday’s episode of The Project.

The 35-year-old comedian became emotional after being asked about her fertility struggles, and confessed she was staying strong for her partner, Tom Poole. 

‘I think, I, Tom and I are… he’s in the room, so I’m not going to cry. We’ve been trying for a baby for a while and it’s just…’ she began, wiping tears from her eyes.

‘Anyone who struggles with fertility will understand this. It is just frustrating and annoying and every time you get your period you’re like, “No!” It is hard.’

Talking about her new children’s book, Drum Roll Please… It’s Stevie Louise, Tanya said she ‘gave birth to this book’ after failing to conceive. 

‘Hopefully if I have a baby, she’ll read this and know her mum wrote this to be a fierce, strong woman. You can be funny and be different,’ she added.

Project host Carrie Bickmore then asked Tanya if she’d seen Rebel Wilson’s latest Instagram post after the actress spoke about her own fertility problems. 

‘I did! I was like, “Girl, I’m with you”. She said, “I wish I had done it earlier.” And I’m five years younger. They call 35 a geriatric pregnancy and I’m like, Jesus!’ she continued.

In a candid post on Instagram on Monday, Rebel, 41, revealed she’d received ‘some bad news’ concerning her fertility.

‘To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya. The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn’t make sense… but I hope there’s light about to shine through all the dark clouds,’ the Pitch Perfect star wrote.

Meanwhile, Tanya previously spoke about her fertility struggles in an interview with news.com.au’s body+soul on Sunday.

‘I never thought I’d be so sad getting my period. [Trying to fall pregnant is] depleting and exhausting, and feels like a full-time job. If another person tells me “relax and it will happen”, I’ll lose it!’ she confessed.
