It doesn’t happen very often when we hear celebrities open up about not wanting to have children, especially female celebrities, so it’s kind of refreshing to hear Chelsea Handler’s stance on not having any kids of her own. The talk show host was on a recent episode of The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet and she spoke candidly about not having kids of her own;
“I don’t think I’d be a great mother. I don’t want to have a kid and have it raised by a nanny. I don’t have the time to raise a child. Childhood was heartbreaking enough for anybody. I don’t know that I could handle my own child, especially if I had a girl, going through what I went through growing up. Not that it was so traumatic, but in many ways, it was in your own way.”
Well I have to say I admire her honesty. At least she knows that she doesn’t want kids so no one will ever have to do bump watch for Chelsea! It’s kind of funny that Chelsea’s bff Jennifer Aniston also doesn’t seem to want to have any kids either. Maybe that’s why they’re such great friends!
