Christina Hendricks: I’m “Not Interested In Having Children”
Christina Hendricks reveals that she does not want to have children in the May issue of Health magazine.
According to the actress, who recently got a puppy with husband Geoffrey Arend, pet ownership is enough.
“That’s my idea of starting a family,” she says.
Hendricks notes that “people say, ‘Oh, that’s practice for parenting,’ but if it’s practice for anything it’s to be a mom to another puppy. We’ve decided that we are not really interested in having children.”
Hendricks understands how her not wanting children can be hard for people to believe.
She says, “It seems like it’s expected that you’d want to have kids. It’s just very normal for people to say, ‘Well, when you guys have kids…’ And then when I say, ‘Actually I don’t think we’re going to do that,’ people will say, ‘Oh, you say that now…'”
Still, Hendricks isn’t making any final decisions.
She adds, “You know, there’s a small chance I could change my mind.”
