Earlier this year, Elliott was very open on The Kelly Clarkson Show about how she and her husband were trying to have a baby via IVF treatments. The 33-year-old actress joked that her Valentine’s Day would be “very romantic” as Kennedy would have to give her hormone “shots in [her] butt.” 

“The hormones are very intense, and so many people go through this and we don’t talk about it enough, I think, as women,” she told Clarkson. “We need to raise more understanding and awareness.”

Elliott, who has shared on social media in the past that she froze five embryos, also took to Instagram to talk about her fertility struggles. 

“This is an emotionally difficult process but in my case talking about it and hearing other people’s stories has made me feel less alone,” she wrote. “To anyone going through infertility, you are so strong.❤️”

It’s #nationalinfertilityawarenessweek 🧡 I’m honored to #bandtogether and #rallylikeamofo with @resolveorg & @fertilityrally today. Infertility sucks and my heart is with everyone that’s a part of “the worst club with the best members” -1 in 8 couples have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. -7.4 million women have received infertility treatment in their lifetime. -Only 16 states have some sort of insurance mandate to help cover infertility treatment.
