10 Celebrities Who Have Decided Never To Have Kids

And their reasons are truly enlightening.

1. Dolly Parton

Dolly told Oprah via Today, “Since I had no kids and my husband was pretty independent, I had freedom. So I think a big part of my whole success is the fact that I was free to work.”

2. Oprah and Stedman

She told People magazine about their decision not to have kids: “I have not had one regret about that. I also believe that part of the reason why I don’t have regrets is because I got to fulfill it in the way that was best for me: the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.”

3. Allen Ludden and Betty White

Betty told CBS in 2012, “No, I’ve never regretted it. I’m so compulsive about stuff, I know if I had ever gotten pregnant, of course, that would have been my whole focus. But I didn’t choose to have children because I’m focused on my career. And I just don’t think, as compulsive as I am, that I could manage both.”

4. Ricky Gervais

Ricky told Ellen DeGeneres (via Hello magazine), “I’d worry sick about a baby. I have a cat and I worry about that. I check the door three times before I go out. I put food and water in every room in case the door closes and he’s peckish for 20 minutes.”

5. Sandra Oh

She told Marie Claire, “I have an extremely fulfilling life as an aunt, not only to my nieces and nephews but also to a lot of my friends’ children.”

6. Kim Cattrall

She thought about starting IVF treatments after marrying her third husband, but her schedule for Sex and the City was too chaotic.

7. Allison Janney

She told Drew Barrymore (via Today), “I wasn’t ever really confident that I wanted to have kids, and I would rather regret not having kids than have kids and regret it.”

8. Sarah Paulson

When asked about having kids, Sarah said, “I don’t know. I’m getting a little old, so there’s cobwebs going on in them ovaries.”

9. Anjelica Huston

She told the Guardian about her decision not to have kids, “I would probably have been miserable.”

10. Helen Mirren

She told British Vogue (via Vanity Fair), “[Motherhood] was not my destiny. I kept thinking it would be, waiting for it to happen, but it never did, and I didn’t care what people thought … It was only boring old men [who would ask me].”
