1. Zooey Deschanel
Surprised? The sweetheart from the show New Girl says NO KIDS.
She may be a bit of a kid at heart, but Zooey Deschanel doesn’t want any of her own. “Having kids has never been my focus,” she tells the current issue of Marie Claire. “My sister was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids–but it was never an ambition, something, like, I need … I like working. That’s what I like doing. I like to work.” (Source)
2. Eva Mendes
Eva doesn’t see herself having children ever. “I don’t wanna have kids,” she said. “I love the little suckers; they’re so cute but I love sleep so much and I worry about everything.” The world needs mini Ryan Goslings running around, so this is further reason to wish they’d go belly up. (Source)
3. George Clooney
A few years back, George Clooney shared that he has no interest in having kids. “Even one kid running around my villa makes me nervous, so I’m definitely not a candidate for father of the year,” he said. “If I need to surround myself with children and feel like I have this big extended family, I can always call Brad and Angie and ask them to stay with me, just to remind myself why I’m so happy.” (Source)
Well, never say never George. You used to say that you like being single and now you found the love of your life, Amal, in the powerful speech at the 72nd Golden Globes. We may see little Clooneys on the news soon!
4. Renee Zellweger
Renee Zellweger is currently dating hottie Bradley Cooper, but she confided to David Letterman, “Motherhood has never been an ambition. I don’t think like that.” (Source)
5. Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz also doesn’t want children. “I have an unbelievable life. In some ways, I have the life that I have because I don’t have children,” she’s said. “I don’t think it’s a compromise to have children. I don’t think it’s a compromise not to. I think it’s just a different choice. … People might say, ‘That’s bull. She actually really wants to have a baby.’ My answer is, ‘No! Everything I’m bringing into my life right now isn’t geared toward that.’”
She also said: “Having children changes your life drastically, and I really love my life. Children aren’t the only things that bring you gratification and happiness, and it’s easier to give life than to give love, so I don’t know.” (Source)
But this year, she not only engaged, but also married to Benji Madden after their 7-month dating. We might witness she changes her mind to become a happy mom soon!
6. Fergie & Josh Duhamel
Fergie has said she and Josh Duhamel aren’t considering kids. “You can be a mother and still be completely sexy,” she explained. “(But) I don’t want anything clouding my focus.” (Source)
After the singer married Josh Duhamel in 2013, she soon got pregnant and gave birth to Axl Jack Duhamel in the same year on August.
7. Kelly Clarkson
Kelly Clarkson told USA Today in 2009 that she has “no desire” to be a mom. “I would not be a good mother. I mean, I love being an aunt to my niece and nephew. And I used to want to, like, adopt 10 kids — because I had friends who were adopted, and I thought that was the coolest thing, to be chosen. But again, my job is too selfish.” (Source)
4 years later, she married and gave birth to her daughter River Rose Blackstock in 2014. Clarkson even brought her to the studio when she was recording her new single ‘Heartbeat Song’. The singer said she adores River “so much” that she wants another one in like two years! (Source )
All I can say is that it’s difficult to trump the changing speed of your life even though you have your whole life planed out ahead of time. Life is full of wonders. Maybe at that moment, you didn’t picture yourself as a parent. But, who knows. You might be an excellent mom or dad when the time is right.
