Gabrielle Union: “I’m 37, I Don’t Think Of Wanting Kids At All… I Have A Better Chance Of Adopting Street Animals”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Caption This, For Your Information, Interviews

The interesting little predator that is Gabrielle Union recently stated her feelings and thoughts on having kids. Just because she’s 37 doesn’t mean that the clock isn’t still ticking and we’re pretty sure D. Wade would like to fill her up with a gut full of human.

Flip the Lid for a Peek at Gabrielle’s Interview…

HM: What’s your favorite way to beat stress?
Gabrielle: A great glass of wine. There’s a liquor store in Studio City that has wine tastings and they teach you about it. Vendome Liquors, every Friday night, and it’s awesome. I have my driver meet me after so we don’t have any of those issues. Everyone says the Valley is devoid of culture, but it’s not. It’s inexpensive. I’m from Omaha, which is not wine country by any stretch so I don’t know a lot about wine. I just learned how to pronounce sommelier so I’m learning. I’m humble enough to say I don’t know a lot about it and what better way to learn it than from people who sell it?

HM: What did you learn about relationships from your marriage?
Gabrielle: That you can’t sweat the small stuff. I spent so much of my marriage upset. Things like the toilet seat being up or down shouldn’t define your day. You put so much on every little thing. You look at your parents like they were infallible and perfect and you realize now that they made a lot of mistakes and they’re just people. I’m giving the men in my life the same consideration. They’re just human.

HM: Would you want to see into your future?
Gabrielle: Hell, yes! I have bills. I want to know if I’m going to be able to pay them. In Janet’s flash forward she sees herself having this baby and she never even thought about children. I don’t think about children. I’m 37 and I don’t think about wanting kids at all or look at babies and go ‘Ooh!’ I have more of a chance of adopting animals on the street.

  • Littleenglander

    Feel the same way and I am 38. I have known since I was eight that I would never be a mother. Some women are just not maternal, better to acknowledge that than pop out children that end up being unloved.

  • mana234

    Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He- is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at an age gap dating site- A_ge_m_in_g l e @ c//o//m a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other.

  • Say what

    I will not lie and say I dont think about children but its very possible that I will not have any and thats ok. I’m 30 and I think I rather enjoy my life without them. I can honestly say I dont want children

  • ceewalk

    Damn shes old!!!! I co-sign with her… she is annoying as it is. Doesnt need to reproduce. I would feel genuinely sorry for the child.

  • Melissa

    Even if she felt that she should keep that to herself. Considering the fact the man she is dating has two little boys….. The more Gabby opens her mouth the more I loose respect for her….

  • CAT EYES

    I think motherhood is an individual choice.Every woman honestly doesn’t have the=at maternal feeling and her feeling that way should be respected.I would rather a woman that can admit that rather than having them and not appreciating them…raising children is not something everyone is cut out for….

    Ever since I could remember,I always told my parents i would bring them 10 children!!We stopped at 8,the smallest one a year old now.My husband now has a vasectomy so I won’t be having more,but i would if i could!!I could not see my life without them!!

  • Dilla

    I don’t blame Gabby at all, I’m 30 and married but don’t know if I want children yet.

  • Dilla

    I’m not selfish but the world is hell, I’m not sure that I wanna bring a child into this place, and that is my honest concern.

  • Miss u much MJJ

    @cat eyes
    You have 8 kids! WOW!
    I hope you had 4 sets of twins.

  • Dilla

    @cateyes, my mom had 7 kids, there is a lot of love in big families. Congrats to you and your hubby.

  • SEEKER OF TRUTH

    The comments from some of the men on this one is sad and upsetting.

    She is attractive.
    she is NOT old
    She has a right not to want children
    So what if her man has 2, maybe that was a deal breaker for her not to have any!

    Damn,

    leave her alone, she’s human.

    At least she is honest ,, you dont have to sneak around and find out about it later! Go Gabby!!

  • resurrected

    I don’t know what I feel about her but she comes across and needy and unstable even though I hate the world needy… Having children I sure is a lovely thing when you are ready… Many woman are not ready when they have children usually it’s for the wrong reasons or out of reckless choices and selfish.. When I come across really happy wives and mothers that is because they planned this place in there lives instead of just letting it happen…

  • Gimmeabreak78

    I respect Gabby for being up front about not wanting children. It’s better than her being one of those women who shouldn’t be allowed to spawn, but has a litter nonetheless (see: Octomom).

  • Gimmeabreak78

    Dang, Boss:

    _____________________________________

    I agree with your perspective and think the world would be a much better place if folks understood their needs/limitations. It seems like the news is bombarded with stories of parents who hurt (physically and emotionally) their own children, so it’s clear that not everyone is cut out to be a parent. At least she knows herself well enough to know she’s not “there” yet, and might not ever be ready to have a child. Kudos to you and your hubby on your family!

  • Call Tyrone

    Having Children is a HUGE life changer! I think black women are pressured into to having babies young because of the misconception that it’s the norm. All my friends have children, mostly out of wed lock or serious committed relationships, and you know what the majority of them are miserable.
    ‘Nuff guys ask me why I don’t have kids and I simply reply that I haven’t met the right man, plus I am single as in not married, divorced or separated. Raising a baby by myself is not my idea of having fun.
    I won’t settle for a baby father! Not saying that I have to get married but having a life partner is a goal. Women please don’t feel pressured to become a mother is you are not ready. Ultimately you are the one who will bear the most responsibility for that child, so make informed decisions about your life before it’s too late.
