3. Ellen DeGeneres

Another world-famous television show host, Ellen DeGeneres, told during on NBC’s Today that she doesn’t regret not having children because she isn’t ready for the commitment.

6. Cameron Diaz

7. Rachael Ray


In an interview with People, the famous celebrity chef told that she has too little time to be a good parent. “I just feel like I would do a bad job if I actually took the time to literally give birth to a kid right now and try and juggle everything I’m doing," she stated.

8. Dolly Parton

During an interview on NBC’s Today, Parton explained that she feels like God never planned for her to bear children of her own because she had to take care of other children who had no one to provide for.
