Only Fans star Rhian Sugden has shared an emotional insight into life as an 'IVF warrior' on Mother's Day. Bury-born Rhian, 36, posted a tearful photo of herself with a candid Instagram post. "The reality of Mother's Day to an IVF warrior," she wrote with the picture showing the lingerie model in tears as she rested in bed.

And she added: "It's hard." Rhian, who has been undergoing In Vitro Fertilisation with her husband former Coronation Street star Oliver Mellor, said in 2020 that getting a puppy, a cavapoochon called Roger, had helped to console her after the heartbreak of two failed IVF attempts.

Tests revealed she has the 'egg count of a woman over 45' and was in the stage of perimenopause - the time during which the body makes the transition to menopause marking the end of the reproductive years.

Rhian, the longest-standing Page 3 model, was also told she has only a three per cent chance of getting pregnant by IVF. In May 2020 she said their baby plans were on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic, but the couple were determined to continue for their third round and refusing to give up hope of having the baby they long for.
