Stars Who Decided Not To Have Kids

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen Degeneres and her partner, Portia de Rossi, have often spoken about their decision not to have kids. "We like our conversations not being interrupted," Degeneres once said.
"You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did," de Rossi explained to Out. "So it's just going to be me and Ellen and no babies."

Seth Rogen

When the topic of whether Seth Rogen ever wanted kids cropped up during an interview on "The Howard Stern Show" in 2021, the actor was quick with his answer of "no."
"Laying in bed on a Saturday morning, smoking weed, like, watching movies naked," Rogen said, reiterating that the freedom from children makes those moments possible with his wife.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus doesn't want to bring any children into the world given the current climate crisis and has concerns about the pressure placed on people to procreate.
"Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I'm not bringing in another person," Cyrus said during an interview with Elle magazine.

Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton and her husband had thought about having children early on, but as time went on and her career took off, the couple couldn't find the right time to start a family.
However, Parton helped raise her siblings, and many of their kids think of her as a grandmother. Parton has also done a lot for children all around the world through philanthropy.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey believes that her hectic lifestyle would have been incompatible with raising kids, "If I had kids, my kids would hate me," she once told The Hollywood Reporter.
Winfrey has been able to direct her maternal energies to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, an organization that fosters the growth of young girls in South Africa.
