MEG RYAN has been making secret trips to a fertility specialist - in a bid to discover if she would have any problems in conceiving lover RUSSELL CROWE's baby.
According to American tabloid STAR, Ryan is desperate to cement her relationship with the New Zealand hunk by having a second child- and she's hoping for a little girl. But the 38-year-old actress is concerned age might not be on her side and so she's seeking expert advice. A friend says, "She wants to make sure the baby would be healthy and that she'll be physically prepared for the challenge of a new child. "Russell has told Meg he's found his someone special and he'd love to fill his farm in Australia with kids."
Ryan fell in love with Crowe on the set of her new movie PROOF OF LIFE and left her husband DENNIS QUAID for her co-star.(KL/TS/RGS)
