Aisha Tyler is best known for being the comedic relief on the show The Talk. Unfortunately not everything in life is fun and games for her and her husband, Jeff Tietjens. Tyler revealed on the show on Tuesday that she would never be able to conceive a child.
The idea for the show that day was to have all of the co-hosts to tell a secret that they had never told anyone before. Sharon Osbourne told about her fling with Jay Leno. This shocked everyone, but it was not as emotionally moving as Aisha’s secret.
The 42 year old actress told everyone about how once she went off of birth control and they began trying to conceive a baby, nothing happened. They finally went to the doctor to get checked out and she found out that she had a torturous fallopian tube. It makes it hard for the sp*rm to reach the egg in order to fertilize it. The doctor said that they should think about IVF but even then she would only have a 5% chance of having a baby.
They decided to go through the process anyway. There were many shots, many appointments, and still no baby. Tyler says that the hardest part about all of it is the fact that her husband would make a great father, and it kills her that she cannot give him that chance. They are not yet thinking about whether they will adopt or not since the news about her infertility is so new. She wants time for them to let it sink in and then they will see where they are going to go from there.
