Kim Cattrall right not to have kids
Kim Cattrall thinks she made the right decision not to have children.
The former ‘Sex and the City’ star – whose first marriage, to Larry Davis was annulled, while her unions with Andre J. Lyson and Mark Levinson ended in divorce – is happy with the choices she has made in her life, and doesn’t care what society thinks.
She said: "I don’t have kids, I’m not married – those were certain aspirations I had and society has – and some people would say, ‘You must be so lonely’ and others would say, ‘Good for her.’
"But I’m happy with the decisions I made.
"I realised I wouldn’t be doing the child I had any favours or the husband that I did have any favours.
"But I didn’t make these decisions willy-nilly. I really thought about them and, ultimately, I knew that they were right."
But the 60-year-old star insists she does have "maternal instinct" even without kids of her own, and gets a "tremendous amount" from helping and mentoring young people.
She added to Woman magazine: "Just because you don’t have children doesn’t mean you don’t have a maternal instinct.
"I have a lot of young people that I mentor and help. They get something out of it, I hope, and I get a tremendous amount out of it. I love them.
"They’re so brave to continue to be in the workforce as young women and still want to find a mate and have children – in some ways I’m so relieved that those decisions are out of my hands and I can just go about the life I have chosen."
