oprah winfrey explains why she never wanted children

No kids necessary for this lady!

Oprah Winfrey recently mentioned how her "eggs are dying on the shelf," and yet she has no regrets about having no children.

Her reasoning is that she believes she would've neglected the children for her career, and it would've ended up badly for everyone!

Here's what she said:

"If I had kids, my kids would hate me. They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would've probably been them."

Oprah did give birth to a baby when she was 14-years-old, but the child only lived for a number of weeks.

Still, Oprah had never wanted children.

Even back when she was in school, Oprah was dreaming about her career while others were thinking about kids! Oprah mentioned her childhood best friend Gayle King in the following example.

Here's what she said:

"Gayle [now a mother of two] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade home ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children. While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King."

Although we would've loved Oprah to have kids, we totally don't mind that she never made the kiddie leap.

She's enough amazingness for us!

Kids are definitely precious, but they're not for everyone.

Which is a good thing because if they were for everyone - this world would be even more overcrowded than it already is!
