Transcript for Charles Kelly and His Wife Open Up About Their Struggle to Have a Baby
called "Baby boom" and exciting time for lady antebellum singer Charles Kelly. He and his wife cassie are expecting their first child but it did not come easy for the couple. ABC's juju Chang spoke with the mom-to-be about her frustrating to get pregnant. Good morning to you, juju. Reporter: That's the happy ending but you know we often think of infertility as an older woman problem but younger women like cassie can have heartbreaking trouble getting pregnant often suffering from more than one baffling iue. ? they've taken the music industry by storm, the chart topping trio, lady antebellum. And for member Charles Kelly another reason to sing. He and his wife cassie announcing after six years of marriage they're expecting a baby. We're almost four months and I'm due in February and we just found out that we're having a boy so which, gosh, I get choked up just thinking about it. We're thankful. We're so blessed isn't a strong enough word and up against some incredible odds and it still happened. Reporter: Cassie describing those heartbreaking odds during a two-year struggle to conceive in a post on her lifestyle brand's website womanista. When you're young and healthy and red di to start a family you just don't envision that there will be any problem doing that. Reporter: Instead they endured months of negative pregnancy tests and sought out a fertility specialist last November. From that we learned that my body doesn't ovulate regularly which is problem number one. And then also I had a blockage in my left fallopian tube which also happened to be connected to my dominant ovary. Our doctor told us we had a 1% chance of conceiving a child naturally without doing ivf. Reporter: Because cassie suffers from inovulation where she doesn't produce an egg every month. She had more than one problem and typically they ovulate on every other side. She had six times to get pregnant rather than 12. Reporter: About 6 million in the U.S. Struggle with infertility. The plan was to start ivf. Reporter: But then a miracle. To our surprise and incredible excitement, I got pregnant in may and then found out that we were expecting in June. I think the most important thing to take away from cassie's story is that hope is always alive for a lot of women we get pleasantly surprised and a lot of women are successful if they continue to strive to get pregnant to pursue treatment. And cassie says it was often people who thought they were being helpful who added to the pain of her infertility with comments like, oh, you just need to relax or maybe take a vacation together and cassie says, you go know, we all need to be careful with our friendly advice. Very easy to say the wrong thing. Thank you so much, juju. We're so happy for that. Congratulations to them. Time now to Yahoo! Your day.
