Oprah Winfrey Confesses: I Wouldn’t Have Been A Good Mom… I’m Impatient.
Popular television talk show host and actress Oprah Winfrey confesses to about being impatient.
The 63-year-old in a recent interview disclosed that she has no regrets about never becoming a mother.
According to the report, she admits it was a conscious decision.
Oprah who has been in a relationship with Stedman Graham since 1986 has never had a child of her own.
She tells the April issue of Good Housekeeping U.K. that she feels very maternal towards the women in her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.
“I have 172 girls, and 20 are in college in the United States and use my home as their home base.
“It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined.
Oprah Winfrey Confesses To Being Impatient
“When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them, because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children.”
Oprah further confessed that she didn’t feel she would be a good mother.
“Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age two, 10 or 20.
“If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.”
Oprah further reveal that she didn’t want babies and she is not a patient person.
“I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies.
“I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!”
Oprah in the interview spoke a bit about her lifelong struggle with food and her recent 42-pound weight loss.
“[My weight] has been the go-to comfort for me. You use it as your coat and your shield, and it keeps you from doing things.
“You don’t have to go to that party because you don’t have a dress to wear and nothing is going to fit you.”
