Over the summer, Becca revealed she and her husband saw a fertility specialist and had their embryos frozen after she suffered a miscarriage for the second time.

‘In my early 30s, I was having an ultrasound and the doctor said,’ Oh, my gosh, look at all those eggs, ‘so I had a false sense of confidence in my ability to make a baby,’ she said on her podcast LadyGang.

‘I didn’t realize the weight that would be lifted the moment that I found out that I didn’t have to hurry up and keep trying and hopefully get something healthy.’

In November 2020, she spoke out asking fans and friends not to ask any further about their IVF journey.

‘Please don’t text me. We just need to understand that: Stop asking women about their fertility, and let them volunteer the information and read the room, ‘Becca told People.

‘I know that the next couple months, there are going to be a few comments on Instagram. Like, “Is that a baby bump? Are you pregnant?” That stuff is really tough.

‘And I can’t stress it enough that we just have to stop. We have to allow women to share their news when they’re ready, and the speculation and the questions just adds more stress and pressure to a family. ‘

Tobin and Martin exchanged vows in 2016 at the Amangani Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in front of a star-studded crowd that featured many of Tobin’s former Glee co-stars, such as Lea Michele, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz. Some of the show’s writers and production workers were also in attendance for the proceedings.
