Today on The Talk, a tearful Aisha Tyler shared an emotional secret-- that she and her husband Jeff Tietjens have given up hope of ever conceiving biological children, due to fertility struggles.
The 42-year-old co-host and actress opened up about her failed IVF treatments with the ladies on Tuesday's show, revealing that doctors have given her a less than 5% chance of ever getting pregnant due to a "tortuous fallopian tube."
"The hardest part, I think, is I really love my husband," Aisha said to the visibly teary group. "He's such a good person. He would be such a good father, you know? It would be so great to see a little him running around in tiny work man's Dickies. But we just decided it wasn't worth it to go though that, and so we decided to stop."
Though she and her husband have officially stopped trying to conceive, Aisha hasn't given up on kids in the future.
"I love the idea of adoption, but I feel like this is such a fresh wound that I want to let it heal for a little while before I think of what to do next."
