Christina Hendricks has been married to husband Geoffrey Arend since 2009, so everyone wants to know something very important: WHEN ARE THEY HAVING BABIES?! Well, turns out, the answer to that is… never! Turns out, not everyone in possession of ovaries is desperate to procreate.
Preach it, Christina:
“We got a puppy, and that’s my idea of starting a family. People say, ‘Oh, that’s practice for parenting,’ but if it’s practice for anything it’s to be a mom to another puppy,” Hendricks, 38, tells Health in their May issue, on stands April 18.
“We’ve decided that we are not really interested in having children.”
She continues: “It’s just very normal for people to say, ‘Well, when you guys have kids …’ And then when I say, ‘Actually, I don’t think we’re going to do that,’ people will say, ‘Oh, you say that now …’ It doesn’t bother me, though. And, you know, there’s a small chance I could change my mind.”
Good for her! I like dogs more than babies, too (though babies ARE really cute and squishy… as long as I can give them back). If you think I’m making a big deal out of the fact that a woman has come out and said outright that she doesn’t want kids, then think of this: the fact that this is even a topic for discussion, that people are asking it and reporting on it, speaks for itself.
Plus, she was probably scarred by Joan’s experience on Mad Men.
