Egg harvesting is a non-invasive method used to retrieve eggs from a female to be used in IVF.

Despite being in the early stages of their journey, the couple have already looked into the process.

Kerry explained: “We have got an appointment tomorrow about getting my eggs harvested.

I don’t want to carry another child

“That is the next step, and that is as far as we are going.”

Earlier in the chat, she also said: “Ryan hasn’t biologically grown any of his children, he’s eight years younger than me.

“I don’t want to rob Ryan of not having his own child, if that is a route we want to go down, but I don’t want to carry another child.”

Ryan also joined Kerry in the studio.

Sharing his thoughts, he said: “It’s something that down the line it might be more of a thought than a thing for me to be like ‘I want more than I do at the minute.’

“At the minute we’re so busy that it isn’t top of the list, but if it is going to happen, we need to get the ball rolling and start the process.”
