Earlier this year, Michelle told us she wanted another baby before having her ovaries removed. Last year she had a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of breast cancer as she carries the mutated BRCA2 gene, giving her a greater risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.
"I am looking at having my ovaries removed to help reduce my chance of ovarian cancer, but that's a little way off. We hope to extend our family before then," she said in our exclusive interview.
