Anna Marie Tendler reveals plan to freeze her eggs after bitter divorce from John Mulaney

Anna Marie Tendler has shared her own plans for motherhood after ex-husband John Mulaney welcomed a baby son with actress Olivia Munn.

The artist, 36, revealed she is freezing her eggs after splitting with her comedian ex, despite once viewing the idea of having kids as a “closed door”.

Speaking in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Tendler said having children was never on the cards — but after Munn’s surprise pregnancy, she has changed her mind.

“There were things I never even thought about before because that was just a closed door. So now that it feels like not as much of a closed door, it’s something that I ruminate on a lot,” Tendler explained.

Tendler said she “always held partnership above having kids” but will “certainly” freeze her eggs in the hope she might have her own baby one day.

“I feel lucky that I get to be standing on the precipice of all of these new things, that I get to possibly experience, and who knows how they will go?” she added. “And there is certainly something exciting about that.”

Mulaney and Tendler confirmed their split in May 2021 after tying the knot in 2014.

That same month, the comedian moved on with Munn and the actress welcomed her first child with Mulaney, Malcolm Hiệp, in November 2021.

Tendler told the magazine her divorce and Munn’s pregnancy was “totally shocking and I think, surreal”.

“Olivia and this baby have helped save me from myself,” Mulaney told Late Night with Seth Meyers when he announced their pregnancy.

Tendler has been open about her emotional struggles following the divorce, sharing a poignant Instagram post about dealing with “unfathomable loss” in January.

“Over the past two years it seems that change has been synonymous with loss and collectively this loss has been unfathomable,” she wrote on Instagram.

“My own brain is well acquainted with the elusiveness of hope that materialises in sporadic and ephemeral waves. I suppose, in part, this is what it means to live with depression and anxiety.”

She added: “The circumstances of my year have been harsh and punishing.”
