'I think it is incredibly important that we change how we talk about abortion.

'The topic typically lives in the shadows which only creates misinformation and stigma.'

Alex welcomed her second child, a son named Maxwell Keegan, in August with her fiancée Carson Jory.

She also shares a son Elijah, 10, with her ex-husband Joel Porter.

Alex won the heart of rope-access technician Richie Strahan on The Bachelor in 2016, but they split a year later. 

Alex's admission comes two years after fellow Bachelor star Abbie Chatfield told her own story of her abortion in a bid to help others.

The 26-year-old told the Shameless podcast in October 2019 that she had an abortion months before appearing on Matt Agnew's season, saying that the frequent discussions about pregnancy on-set were upsetting in light of her experience.

During one particularly tough day of filming, Abbie broke down in tears after a producer suggested how 'nice' it would be to have a child. 

The male producer asked Abbie a leading question about pregnancy while former Bachelor winners Laura Byrne and Snezana Wood were visiting the set.
