Then Cheryl commented they had discussed having kids during their marriage.
‘He comes from a huge family, and there were definitely conversations, but I always had said, “As long as I had to shove my body in a dance costume, me thinking about being pregnant probably isn’t something I can talk about at the moment,”‘ Cheryl said.
‘But yes, there were discussions about freezing my eggs,’ she added.
Cheryl also mentioned that although she has been a TLC fan, she doesn’t plan to go to any of their concerts soon.
She jokingly commented, ‘I’m not going to a concert, but I will still sing along to the song, No Scrubs.’
Cheryl also stated that leaving DWTS was more challenging than her divorce since she worked on the show for nearly 20 years.
In January, the DWTS pro threw shade at her ex-husband after his romance with TLC’s Chilli went public.
She wrote, ‘That was fast,’ on her Instagram Story.
This came after Cheryl dropped a bombshell hint on her TikTok in August, suggesting that Lawrence may have cheated on her.
