Erin Andrews has made a big plan for her future after battling cervical cancer. The 39-year-old sportscaster has been cancer-free for a year, and she said that she would like to have a baby with husband Jarret Stoll.
On Tuesday's episode of ABC's Good Morning America, Erin told show host Michael Strahan, about her desire to expand the family.
I definitely want it. Even though I'm crazy on the sidelines and doing other things with 'Dancing with the Stars,' absolutely. I didn't have to have a hysterectomy and so … I'm fully capable of having a baby, but that's because I went and got tested and because we were able to treat it early, and that's all you need to tell the women in your life.

Noting that she felt "absolutely fine" before being diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2016, the Dancing with the Stars host shared the importance of women visiting doctors and getting screened even when they are feeling well.
When I went to get my annual exam, and they called me back and said something's wrong, everybody said … 'There's nothing's wrong with you. You're healthy. You go work out all the time.' There are no symptoms, and that's what makes this something that should urge you to go to the doctor more,
The NFL's Fox Sports presenter returned to cover a matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers just three days after undergoing surgery following her diagnosis.
She told Michael that she was eager to return to her job quickly because it gave her a sense of normalcy.
That's where I feel better, is on the sidelines. I could forget about it, but it's where I felt like this is me. And also, Stra, I didn't want to think anything was a big deal. I really didn't.
Erin, who married former NHL Player Jarret Stoll in 2017, has spoken about her experience overcoming cancer in the past as well.
Last year, she told NBC's Megyn Kelly that following her first surgery, her doctor told her she would need a second operation and recommended a hysterectomy. But she consulted with another doctor and opted for a less-invasive operation, which eventually became successful.
