She has definitely been in the headlines, but something that most people don’t know is that Brooke’s twin boys with Charlie Sheen were born via in vitro fertilization, and now sources are saying that it was NOT for medical reasons. The rumor is that it wasn’t Brooke’s health or medical issues that led her to seek out IVF treatments and getting pregnant with twins, it was her inability to stay away from drugs for any extended period of time.

Her only shot

Rumors are swirling that the only reason that Brooke had IVF treatments to conceive her twins is that she didn’t think she would be able to stay sober during any subsequent pregnancies. An unnamed source recently told Radar Online that Brooke saw IVF as “her only shot”.

“There were no medical reasons why Brooke needed to have in vitro fertilization;” the insider revealed. “Even despite all of her drug abuse, Brooke was healthy and so was Charlie. But she was absolutely obsessed with giving her new husband twin sons and desperately wanted to only get pregnant once. That’s why she had IVF. She didn’t think she’ d be able to stay sober during another pregnancy.”

Possible triplets

Radar Online also reported that when Brooke got pregnant back in 2008, the same year that she married Charlie Sheen, that she was actually pregnant with triplets. Charlie was actually the one who revealed this information to the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services, when he attempted to warn authorities about Brooke’s “credibility and motivation” during their ongoing custody battle.

He revealed that Brooke was pregnant with triplets, and that she actually terminated one of the pregnancies behind his back. She told Charlie that she had lost one of the babies, but Sheen says that she purposely terminated the fetus. Brooke later went to rehab twice during her pregnancy with the twins over her addiction to crystal meth.

She is currently dealing with ongoing drug addiction issues, and the twins are currently in the temporary custody of her brother, Scott. We wish Brooke the best and hope that she is able to get the help she needs.
