Teigen, 29, a Sports Illustrated regular who serves as Bank's food stylist on "FabLife" talked about how intrusive it feels when people keep asking when a childless couple is planning to have children.

Teigen has been married to multi-Grammy Award winning singer John Legend for two years during which time they tried to conceive but were unable to. She also admitted she and her husband have been to fertility doctors about their fertility problem and told the round table discussion and studio audiences that she hates people asking when the kids will start to arrive.

The issue of women's fertility has seldom been discussed by celebrities, particularly during interviews and in social media, and the co-hosts revealed that before they brought it up on the show, nobody had any idea they were struggling with the issue.

Banks, who revealed she is tired of getting asked the question "Why don't you have kids?" even pointed out that in today's society, a thrice-divorced woman would be considered more normal than a woman who couldn't have children.

Banks, 41, who is in a relationship with Norweigian photographer, Erik Asla, 50, have been trying to conceive but have been unable to. She tearfully admitted she has been reassuring herself every year she was going to get pregnant since she turned 23, and has found it hasn't been easy.

The fertility discussion on "FabLife" will be aired in the show's full episode on ABC today, September 21.
