On Monday, the emotional episode aired and the 41-year-old businesswoman broke down in tears as she shared how the endless questions about having a baby can be quite hurtful.
After Teigen candidly revealed that she and husband John Legend are “having trouble” having kids and made a plea for people to “stop asking” when she plans to get pregnant, Banks asked the cameraman to zoom in to her face before she passionately addressed the audience.
“And for any women, it is none of your business what somebody is going through,” the former model continued, “Whether they want to have a child or don’t ever want to have a child or may have a child on the way, it’s none of your business, okay? Until somebody wants to make it your business.”
Tyra and Chrissy then shared a sweet embrace as the audience erupted into cheers before Banks, who has never been married, went on to share her beef with society’s judgmental attitude.
“I am so tired of seeing on my social media, ‘Why don’t you have kids? Why don’t you have kids?’ You don’t know,” she insisted. “You don’t know what I’m going through.”
Banks also revealed that she has been undergoing IVF treatments. “We’re kind of going through this similar thing with IVF,” she said, looking at Teigen, “And, you know, putting needles in your tummy every day and having to come to work and smile when you feel like you want to throw up and lay down…I can’t believe I’m saying this right now.”
Bravo, Ms. Banks.
