The reality TV personality said that when she and Tom started discussing “our fertility,” they had to be open about their journey from the start.
“And the beginning,” she said, is not a happy story. But it was what we went through. And we have to be honest about that. I’m not trying to paint a perfect picture of my life, of my relationship. It is clear. I just want to paint it as honestly as possible and hope that people will appreciate it.”
“We all make mistakes, but we all do our best with what we get,” she added.
Katie explained that when faced with the decision to have an abortion 10 years ago, they “chosen the best for themselves.”
“Tom and I, 10 years ago, when this happened, we were not in a position to become parents,” she revealed. She added that her 2009 accident, in which she fell 25 feet from a skylight and caused her a broken jaw, broken collarbone and a small brain injury, left her feeling “emotionally disoriented.”
“I wasn’t ready, at that point, to become a mother, especially in a new relationship,” she said.
