Anna Wilken was once known for 'Germany's next top model'. Today she works as an influencer. Anyone who follows her on her Instagram profile knows that the 26-year-old also addresses serious issues. She speaks openly about her endometriosis and is committed to better medical care.
When it comes to the unfulfilled desire to have children, Anna Wilken is also fighting to break the taboo – because of her endometriosis it is not easy for her to get pregnant. For years she and her husband Sargis Adamyan have wanted to have children together. It was only in December last year that she announced that she had suffered another miscarriage.
But how does it feel for Anna Wilken when friends or acquaintances become pregnant? That's what someone wanted to know from the influencer on Sunday after she shared photos of a baby party she was invited to in her story. 'Don't celebrations like this hurt you so much? Or have you found a way to deal with it?' the person wanted to know.Anna Wilken keeps answering questions about her unfulfilled desire to have children. Bild: Instagram/Screenshot / @annaadamyan
A question that Wilken gets asked more often. 'It doesn't bother me at all,' she wrote. 'Quite the opposite: you wouldn't believe how happy I am when I can experience this with my loved ones!' Because friends would not take anything away from her, said the ex-'GNTM' participant. 'You can't do anything for my / our situation either.'
On Monday she contacted her followers again personally. Once again she stressed that if she couldn't, she wouldn't do it. Because some don't seem to believe that she can handle situations like baby showers well. Again and again she hears accusations that it is not the case that she can be happy for her friends. 'You can't infer others from yourself,' she said.
The ex-“GNTM” participant communicates with friends if something is too much for her, she explained. But she also doesn't want to be excluded just because her pregnancy hasn't worked out yet.Anna Wilken speaks openly about her thoughts on the desire to have children.

But she also has an important message for other sufferers. If other people couldn't do that, that would be fine too, she thinks. Because: 'Feelings are feelings !' Also on Monday she assured again: 'If you can't take it like that, you're not a bad person.'
