The Untold Truth Of Labor Of Love

FOX's latest reality show Labor of Love is a unique series about Kristy Katzmann, who is 41 years old, and seeking someone to impregnate her. The show is essentially a crossover between shows like Married At First Sight and Love is Blind as well as The Bachelor, except instead of engagement or marriage, Kristy will end up pregnant by one of the 15 men who "share her hopes of parenthood" (via Fox News).

In order to determine who stays and who goes, Katzmann and Sex and the City star, and host of Labor of Love Kristin Davis, put the men through various challenges from babysitting, to a trip to a fertility doctor. "I actually think the men surprised me the most," Katzmann told Fox News. "One of my biggest fears going in was wondering if there are actually men out there who are ready for this. And I think we really tested them off the bat by putting them through the whole sperm analysis pretty much moments after I met them."

Despite the seemingly-bizarre premise of the show, Katzmann told Fox that she thinks her journey is something other women can "relate to."

Kristy Katzmann faced a lot of challenges on Labor of Love

Labor of Love was very tailored to Katzmann, who said she was cast to be on the show at the perfect point in her life. "I think, for me, it really was uncanny because this is truly my life story. The timing could not have been more perfect," she explained. "I had just turned 40 at the time and I had just gotten out of a relationship. I was trying to navigate dating, knowing that I still wanted to start a family and that time was definitely not on my side. I think it's a really incredible story that a lot of women will be able to relate to."

There were, however, some major challenges for her as the lead on the dating show. "It might sound like a total dream to date 15 incredible men at, once but it's actually super overwhelming," she admitted. Eliminating the men was also a tough process for Katzmann who described it as "the hardest part" of the show. "I had real relationships with these men," she said.

At the end of the rollercoaster dating show, Katzmann seems to have found "the one" to have a child with. She told Fox News, "I'm super happy... I feel so confident with how things worked out and I've honestly never been happier."

Kristy Katzmann and Kristin Davis had a great time working together

Katzmann and Davis were a dream team duo on Labor of Love. Davis was not only the host, but she was also an executive producer, so she was able to tailor the show to Katzmann in the best way possible. "When I first heard the premise of Labor of Love, I knew I had to be a part of this show," the Sex and the City actress told Deadline. "I believe every woman should feel empowered to go after their dreams, whether it be professional or personal, and to be at Kristy's side as she took her future into her own hands was truly exciting." It's worth noting Davis, who is 55, adopted two children, one in 2011, and one in 2018 as a single woman (via Women's Health).

Katzmann was also very excited to work with the mom of two. "I was totally starstruck. I felt like this was such a dream. She's super relatable and she's also a really strong female role model. She definitely was my confidant throughout this entire process," she said.
