“So, funny story. I haven’t really planned for any of my kids. Every time, it’s been, ‘Oh, it’s OK. We can do this.’ I love my kids, and I wasn’t against any of them, but I’ve never experienced that thing of looking at a pregnancy test and hoping that it’s positive and preparing that way,” Brian said on his Oldish podcast.
He continued, “Zane was born and I was like, ‘I think it’s time to close the shop.'”

“That was Tuesday. I flew home Wednesday for a meeting. Thursday morning, I had a vasectomy,” Dax said on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I had a vasectomy, and Kristen was not thrilled I did it so quickly, but I’m a man of action. I was in and out. I was back in Atlanta two days after that, shooting a Samsung commercial.”

I pushed out two humans in four minutes and he was like, ‘I have to shave what?’ And I was like, ‘Are you kidding?'” Morgan shared on E!’s Nightly Pop.
Former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. documented his vasectomy on social media, sharing that he was going through with the procedure even though he was nervous about it all. In a vlog, Arie and his wife Lauren explained that she was very sensitive to hormonal birth control and it had previously caused her to struggle with mild depression — so they felt a vasectomy was the best option.
“It’s a big decision and obviously one we made as a family. We love our kids so much and we’re good with three, but I’m still terrified, though. I feel like I’m taking one for the team here, but it’s the least I can do after her pregnancies and I’m just going to try not to think about it too much,” Arie shared.
