chris soules whitney bischoffWhen Whitney Bischoff joked that she and Chris Soules would make a baby on her hometown date, we all did a double take. Did she really just say that?! The contestant, winner, and now fiancee of the ex-Bachelor is a fertility nurse in Chicago and just revealed that she's taken some steps to ensure she'll be a mother. Bischoff just admitted that she froze her eggs two whole years before meeting Soules.

The reality star, and her Dancing With the Stars contestant beau, haven't made any baby announcements since their engagement was revealed earlier this month, but there are definitely plans for a family.

Bischoff has been a fertility nurse for several years, and admitted that her work, and seeing her patients, convinced her to take control of her fertility. "I just felt it would be silly for me not to take the opportunity when it was handed to me," she said in an interview on ABC's Good Morning America.

"We're seeing it every single day first-hand and you hear a patient say, 'I just wish I would've known. I wish someone would've told me," she reveals. "It's an insurance policy. The hope is that you don't have to use them, you know? That's the whole point of an insurance policy."

And she's not shy about admitting it. While on the show, Bischoff was always vocal about her plans for marriage and wanting to start a family of her own. But by taking charge and freezing her eggs, she's ensuring that no matter when it happens, her options are open. "I mean, I think it's just kind of expected because this is what I do for work," she added. "I would tell any woman to do it. I feel like by just taking the lead and taking control of my body and my fertility, it checked off a lot of boxes for me."

Is it a bold move? Absolutely. But if you know you want to be a mom, have the resources to take this step, then it's all up to you. It's certainly a little unconventional, but having this nest egg (no pun intended), and "insurance policy," you can be sure that there's always a back-up plan in case the original strategy doesn't take.

Would you ever consider freezing your eggs?
