After her separation, Iris Mittenaere confides in her fear of not becoming a mother

Less than a week after the public announcement of her separation from Diego El Glaoui, Iris Mittenaere spoke about the end of this relationship in a podcast by the influencer Louise Aubery (Mybetterself). The former Miss Universe confided in her her greatest fear: not having children.

Separating at 31 means taking the risk of never having children. In an intimate podcast with Louise Aubery (Mybetterself), Iris Mittenaere spoke about her desire for motherhood and her fears of perhaps never being able to realize this dream. A fear which weighed heavily in his decision to leave Diego El Glaoui.

“I always wanted to be a mother,” explains Iris Mittenaere. “And breaking up with someone when you’re getting married is taking a risk. It means taking the risk of not necessarily finding someone and not having a child. However, my greatest fear is being alone and without children,” confided the former Miss Universe.

A mature reflection

In her train of thoughts, Iris Mittenaere nevertheless asked herself if she wanted to “feel bad every day for the next 50 years” and the answer slowly emerged. “Sometimes you have to be your own priority,” explains the Northerner. So, I said to myself: “You know what, I’m going to try to be good to myself. The rest will come later.” »

“I also told myself that I would rather not have children than have to share them every other week,” continues the young woman who herself lived with divorced parents. “When you realize that ultimately it’s not the right person, it’s better to stop and not go too far into denial, because afterwards the consequences are not the same. »

“I had to mourn children who were not born”

Despite this powerful reflection, his separation was not easy. “Beyond the mourning of my relationship, I had to mourn the life that I had planned for myself and the mourning of the imaginary children that I had with Diego, because we were at that stage. I felt like I was mourning unborn children. And frankly, it’s painful,” said Iris Mittenaere.

Especially since the young woman confides her fear of seeing the biological clock ticking. “I separated at 31 and I feel this pressure of time,” she slips. We grow up planning things for ourselves, telling ourselves that we are going to get married, then have children, etc. And actually, when you’re living your life and you reach 30 and nothing is going as planned, you have to mourn that life. »

Four years of relationship and a marriage in preparation

Iris Mittenaere and Diego El Glaoui made their separation public on May 10, after four years of relationship. Met in November 2019 through their work, the two influencers quickly became closer and proudly displayed their relationship on social networks, where they acted as #couplegoal. Everyone was impatiently awaiting their wedding, which promised to be sumptuous given their engagement, but which ultimately did not take place.
