Lisa Snowdon has revealed she’s content with not having children.
The 51-year-old presenter, who has been engaged to fiancé George since 2016, entered early menopause at 44 and can no longer have biological children with her partner.
And in a new interview, Lisa said she accepts that kids wouldn’t be part of it even as the couple plans their future, as she admits she feels “everything is the way it’s supposed to be.”
she said Prima Magazine: “I’m content now that I don’t have children.” I feel like everything is as it should be.
“When George and I got back together, I said, ‘You know, if we’re going to have kids, we probably have to move on with that.”

He said, “Why don’t you and I just go on adventures together?” It took the pressure off right away.”
Lisa has been open about her “many fertility issues” in the past, with the TV star opening up about her devastating miscarriage last week following a violent attack from an abusive ex-boyfriend.
But the star has since found happiness with entrepreneur George, and the couple are content with life just the two of them.
The model and presenter first began dating George 22 years ago when they both worked for MTV. But it wasn’t until the two met again in 2015 through a mutual friend that their relationship was revived.
In January 2017, the couple announced their engagement after George proposed to Lisa just five weeks after she left the 2016 series I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
And in her candid conversation with the publication, Lisa explained how she “manifested” her partner back into her life after coming to the realization that she was “worthy” of being loved.
She said, “To meet the right person, you have to believe that you’re worthy of being loved.” I lay in bed at night and wrote on the ceiling a list of all the qualities I wanted in a man . I manifested George and he came back into my life.’
Lisa has often described her longtime partner as her rock who helped get her through menopause, and in the past she has said after this phase in her life that “being a mother in this life wasn’t meant for her.”

Of her experience with it, she said, “There were moments when I felt like nothing would make me happy.” I just wanted to shut everyone out and hibernate.
“I didn’t like myself and I didn’t like feeling depressed because I saw how lucky I was.” I had a great partner and a great family; I tried to practice gratitude, but this dark cloud remained.’
Last year, the star opened up about her struggle with menopause in more detail The Daily Express that she struggled with sleep deprivation, “angry tantrums” and weight gain during her fight.
Lisa, who supports the MenopauZzz campaign, which helps women who have trouble sleeping because of this disease, sometimes said she “didn’t want to be here”.
She said lack of sleep is the biggest issue she struggles with during menopause and struggles to keep up with her career while she’s extremely tired.
“For me, the lack of sleep was what got me to my lowest point when I first hit menopause,” Lisa told the publication.
Wishful thinking: “I would lie in bed at night and write on the ceiling a list of all the qualities I wanted in a man.” I manifested George and he came back into my life.

“Some days I just didn’t want to be here.”
The presenter and media personality said she struggled with weight gain and at one point gained seven pounds.
When she was premenopausal, she suffered from anxiety and was prescribed antidepressants, which she only took for five months.
She later switched to body-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT), prescribed hormonal medication to manage her symptoms, and said she now feels better than ever.
