Rebel Wilson says a desire to have kids was the catalyst for her weight loss.

The 41-year-old actress revealed she has been on a "fertility journey" over the past two years and losing weight was one of the steps she took to help her become a mother.

​​​​​​​Speaking to Australia's The Sunday Telegraph's Stellar magazine, Rebel said: "I've been going through a fertility journey for the past two years and I'm hoping at some point I may have a family of my own.

"But it's still a bit unclear whether that'll be the case. I feel like [it's] not over yet. It's kind of an emotional roller-coaster. But I've been trying my best, so whatever will be, will be."

Back in May, Rebel — who revealed last year that she was freezing her eggs — took to Instagram to share some "bad news" about her fertility with her fans.

She said: "I got some bad news today and didn’t have anyone to share it with...but I guess I gotta tell someone. To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya. The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn’t make sense...but I hope there’s light about to shine through all the dark clouds.

"***UPDATE*** just wanted to say I woke up this morning and read through everyone’s kind messages and stories about their journeys and I can’t tell you how much that meant to me and has made me feel a lot better today. Social media for the win here in terms of creating connection when I was in a very lonely place. So thank you everyone."

The 'Pitch Perfect' star says that the dramatic transformation has allowed her to embrace her "inner siren". 

Meanwhile, Rebel revealed that losing weight has helped her to get in touch with her "inner siren".

She said: "I grew up not really trading on my looks, I was the personality girl. But after going through my whole health transformation last year, I've been in touch with this 'inner siren'." — BANG SHOWBIZ
