‘Why I Never Wanted Children’ – American Billionaire and Media Mogul, Oprah Winfrey

American billionaire and media mogul, Oprah Winfrey, in a recent interview, says she never wanted children because she doesn’t have motherly instincts.

The 64-year-old billionaire believes she would have been a terrible mother because she can’t communicate with anyone who cannot speak.

Oprah opened up about her decision not to have children during a sit down with Gwyneth Paltrow‘s first episode of “The Goop” podcast.

She told Paltrow she could never have raised two babies like Paltrow has done because raising babies would have been too frustrating.

“I don’t think I would have been a good mother for baby children, because I need you to talk to me, and I need you to tell me what’s wrong,” she said. “I can’t just figure it out. I knew this about myself.”

I was always better with kids once they turned two-and-a-half, three, I had a real resonance with them. Gayle (King) was like, ‘Don’t you love babies?’ I was like, ‘Oh, babies are fine.’ It didn’t feel like [having babies] was for me.” she said


The media mogul has however some couple of months ago shared beautiful pictures from her visit to 51-year old Nigerian Beauty entrepreneur and socialite Vivian Chiologi and her lovely daughter.
Vivian and her husband, top NFF licensed player agent, John Shittu, welcomed their first child together back in April, this year.
The couple, who got married in London at the 5 star Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane in 2016, welcomed their bundle of joy on Thursday 19th April 2018 in London.
This photo of Oprah playing with the baby is just precious and heartwarming.
