Rebel Wilson's fiancee's father won't speak to her because of their same-sex relationship.

The 'Bridesmaids' actress revealed she was dating Ramona Agruma in a June 2022 Instagram post, with the pair getting engaged months later, and while the Australian star feels "lucky" that her family were accepting of their union, the clothing designer hasn't had such a comfortable ride.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's 'Desert Island Discs' programme, Rebel said: “I’m lucky in my case, even though I come from a very conservative background, it went very, very well ... My grandparents, who are in their 90s, just so chilled and cool with it.

“Ramona’s family, not as much. Her mum has luckily come around now, her father still doesn’t talk to her, but we’re hoping that will change.”

The 44-year-old actress had been in the process of using a surrogate to have a child when she first met Ramona, and was thankful her partner was quickly accepting of her family plans.

She said: “I’d already been planning to use a surrogate to have a child and I’d done several rounds of IVF and I had one embryo transfer, which sadly didn’t work.

“Almost right at meeting Ramona, I was planning on the second embryo transfer and I was like, ‘Babe I don’t know how to tell you this, but I’m going to have a child kind of around November.’

“Ramona just looked at me and said, ‘Well, I love you and if you have a child, I’m going to love your child exactly the same way.’”

Before undergoing fertility treatment, Rebel lost weight following advice from a specialist, but she admitted not everyone was supportive and she was warned she could "ruin" her career.

She said: “Obviously, my team thought I've created this amazing pigeonhole for myself playing the fat funny girl, and I was earning millions of dollars per movie, so why would you want to change?… So, I made the choice thinking, ‘well, it could ruin my career’. But I made that choice anyway to try to have a family and not develop any serious diseases.”
