Childfree Celebrity Spotlight: Danica Patrick
29 year old IndyCar and NASCAR driver, Danica Patrick, has no desire for the "have it all" lifestyle of career and motherhood. She recently told a reporter she has no interest in having kids now or in the future.
“I think it is something which is probably not for me at this point and realistically, I don’t know when that point would ever be. My focus is on racing and of course I have a lot of outside interests which take up my time.”
“I am not someone who has a strong yearning for kids at all,” she told USA Today. “I see all my friends with kids. I will get up at 10 a.m. and text them and they’ll say ‘Ha, funny. One of my sons was in my room at 5.30 in the morning so I can’t say I slept until 10.’ That’s just their life.
"My sister did her eighth-grade graduation poster on what she wanted to do when she grew up, and it said, 'A mom!' That's definitely not what mine said."
"The only thing I plan long term on are things outside of the car, outside interests or things I want to do with my husband."
