Chelsea Handler is getting very honest.
In a recently released essay for Playboy, the funny lady openly admitted that she had not one, but two abortions at the age of sixteen.

In the personal confession, the talk show host opened up about when she first got pregnant at that young age, saying that she didn't even consider terminating the pregnancy:
"I was going through a very bad stage in my life. I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should've been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex. I wasn't really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, Why not? I can have a baby. Maybe I'll have twins and give them rhyming names!"
But, the Netflix personality's parents brought her to Planned Parenthood because they felt — and Chelsea retrospectively agrees — that she couldn't raise a child by herself as a teenager.
The blonde beauty explained that she felt much better after the procedure, writing:
"I felt parented, ironically, while I was getting an abortion. And when it was over, I was relieved in every possible way."
Miz Handler then revealed that, within that same year, she got pregnant again by the same boy. However, the comedienne explained that she didn't have her parents' help this time around:
"I didn't have the money the second time. I had to scrape together the $230 to pay Planned Parenthood, but it was a safe abortion. Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it's still necessary to make a thoughtful decision."
About 25 years later, the New Jersey native says she doesn't even slightly regret getting the abortions, adding:
