An Emmy Award-winning journalist Sonia Azad mounted to popularity after she joined the ABC-affiliate WFAA in October 2015 as the station’s health and wellness reporter. She documented her personal experience sharing hopes of giving women an in-depth look at mysterious and often misunderstood process of egg freezing and believes that it's about getting prepared.
Not Married But Wants To Be Mom!
Sonia has a fascinating personal life when it comes to her love affairs. She was rumored to be dating her work partner Ron Corning, who anchors news along with her on News 8 Daybreak when one of their fans tweeted;
@SoniaAzadTV The way you and Ron interact it seems you could either be married or siblings????.
Sonia also gifted Ron a coffee mug on his birthday wishing him through her Twitter. Again recently in March, another fan speculated that they are married. However, News 8 Daybreak replied the tweet confirming that they’re neither dating nor married.
Though she doesn’t completely open up about her relationship status, she likes interacting with her fans on her social media accounts. On 2017’s Valentine’s Day, she wished everyone tweeting;
If no one else tells you today... know that I love you!!??????? #ValentinesDay #iamup #wfaa ???????
And on September 2017, she posted a picture with Teddy mentioning him as her new boyfriend on her Facebook which hints that she is single.

Sonia went through egg freezing process to ensure she can become a mother when the right time comes. In an open letter, she wrote to encourage women to freeze their eggs explained that it's not about giving up bachelorette life, but it's about getting prepared for future.
