Erin Andrews' cancer diagnosis brought her and her fiancé, Jarret Stoll, much closer.
In an interview with Health magazine, the 39-year-old Dancing With the Stars host opened up about her shocking cervical cancer diagnosis and revealed that the health crisis led to a much more serious relationship with Stoll.
"It was a huge step for my relationship with my boyfriend at the time," Andrews said, according to a report by 9 News on Tuesday. "Because you don't know if a guy is going to want to sit in with an oncologist and see, 'OK, so this is your cervix, and this is your uterus, and we are cutting out this part.'"
"We hadn't even been discussing marriage," she continued. "We hadn't discussed babies! It really puts things on the fast track for you -- because you have an oncologist saying to you, 'We highly recommend that you guys do your embryos right now, freeze them.' I'm like, 'Hi, hon. I love you. I hope we're spending our lives together.' And he was amazing."
Andrews and Stoll are planning to have children and luckily, Andrews had already frozen her eggs. In addition, the longtime host is currently undergoing IVF treatments in hopes of getting pregnant.
"One thing I love my future husband for is that our oncologist said the smart thing to do would be to have some insurance waiting -- so we have frozen embryos because we've taken the steps," she said. "We don't know what the future entails. We actually had to push this photo shoot because I was in the middle of [the IVF cycle]. I'm doing all these [IVF] shots and in these bathing suits, and I was like, 'Yay, look at my pin marks!'"
