Octavia Spencer has no plans to have children — and she’s OK with it.

The actress opened up during a recent The Hollywood Reporter roundtable discussion with other critically acclaimed actresses.

Asked about what sacrifices she’s made for her career, Spencer says, “I should be married and have, you know, 19 kids. And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh my God, my eggs are dying on the shelf! They’re going to go past their expiration date!'”

“But it’s what I chose. I’m fine with that decision,” continues the Fruitvale Station star.

Check out the full video below — Spencer’s answer comes at the 30:00 mark.
