Kaley Cuoco has thanked Jennifer Aniston for speaking out about her experience with IVF, infertility, and years of dealing with pregnancy rumours.
The Flight Attendant actress, who is pregnant with her first child with partner Tom Pelphrey, praised Jen for sharing her story and reminding people not to assume they know what's going on in someone else's life.
After reading the candid interview, Kaley, 36, took to social media to thank Jen for her honesty.
On her Instagram Story, she wrote: "You never ever know what people are going through behind the scenes .. stop assuming and judging every little thing! @jenniferaniston thank u for sharing this story!!!".
In the interview, Jennifer admitted that she tried to get pregnant 'several years ago' through in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), but it was 'a challenging road'.
She said: "I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it.
"I would have given anything if someone had said to me, 'Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favour.' You just don't think it."
To make matters worse, Jennifer was also dealing with rumours that her relationship with Brad Pitt ended because she 'wouldn't give him a kid'.
Describing the stories as 'absolute lies', the star said that the narrative that she only cared about her career was 'just selfish'.
"And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn't have a child."
"I've spent so many years protecting my story about IVF," the Friends actor admitted.
"I'm so protective of these parts because I feel like there's so little that I get to keep to myself."
Now that she's accepted she won't be able to have children, she says: "I actually feel a little relief now because there is no more, 'Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.' I don't have to think about that anymore."
Kaley's support for Jen comes just one month after announcing that she's expecting her first child with the Ozark actor.
The couple met earlier this year at the premiere for Ozark's final season, and hit it off right away.
In early October, Kaley shared a series of photos with followers to reveal that she and Tom are expecting a baby girl.
"Baby girl Pelphrey coming 2023", she wrote. "Beyond blessed and over the moon… I [love] you @tommypelphrey!!!"
