The ladies of “The Talk” and guest Zoe Saldana discussed the merits of having children before marriage on Thursday’s show.


Sharon Osbourne made it clear that while women are “more independent” these days, she’d be less than thrilled if her (unwed) daughters came home pregnant.

Sara Gilbert suggested that there’s no reason to do things in a “certain order” anymore, and that people who get married because they’ve had children together could be tying the knot for the wrong reasons.

Panelists Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood also weighed in, and when the pregnant (and married) Saldana came to the table, she offered her own thoughts.

“God gave us a will, or the universe gave us the right to choose what is right for us,” said the actress. “I was [the] product of a very painful marriage of people that loved each other but just couldn’t make things work between them. Once they decided to separate they were the most amazing parents, and the most amazing and happy people apart.”

She added, “I say wait if you want to believe in marriage, and do it right. Be happy, and try to make it work and if it’s not… have kids. It’s great!
