Soon after Kim Cattrall slammed the term 'childless' and insisted that being a parent does not necessarily require giving birth to an infant, two more celebrities have spoken up about the issue.

Discussing the pressure which is put upon women to start a family, Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigan opened up about their own personal struggles in frank admissions which struck a chord with thousands of The Fab Life viewers.

29-year-old model Chrissy, who is married to music icon John Legend, didn't hold back when she spoke of the distress and frustration she feels when quizzed about her family plans.

"I will say honestly, John and I are having trouble. We would have kids five, six years ago if it'd happened. But my gosh, it's been a process," she explained to her fellow panelists.

"We've seen fertility doctors. And then once you open up about all those things to other people, you start learning that a lot of people in your life are seeing these people, and they have this shame about it," she continued.

Echoing her co-star's sentiments, 41-year-old Tyra revealed her own difficulties and struggled to hold back tears as she explained the disappointment she felt at failing to fulfill societal pressures.

Both women, who insisted that probing questions into a woman's family plans must come to a stop, were met with much support while outlining the upset it can cause.
