On Monday evening, the 45-year-old Poosh founder answered a fan's question about her IVF journey via her Instagram story.

The follower asked, "Had 6 failed IVFs – how did you find the strength to keep going? It's debilitating."

Kourt replied back, "I stopped after a year of trying (5 failed IVF cycles, 3 retrievals) my body relaxed and I believed in God's plan for my life. Lots of prayers for whatever was meant to be for us."
