Kelly Osbourne has announced that she will have her ovaries removed.
The 30-year-old appeared on The Talk and was discussing actress Angelina Jolie’s recent announcement that she had had preventive cancer surgery.
Osbourne’s mother, Sharon, had a double mastectomy in 2012 and Osbourne said she will follow suit because, like her mother, she has the cancer gene.
“I know that one day I will eventually have to do it too because if I have children, I want to be there to bring them up,” she said.
“It’s something I applaud Angelina for because she’s bringing attention to this, and people are now going to go out and get tested for it.”
Earlier this week, Jolie wrote an article in the New York Times explaining her decision to have both ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed.
