For “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks, children aren’t in the cards at this point. In an interview with Health magazine, she opens up about the life she shares with husband Geoffrey Arend.
“We got a puppy, and that’s my idea of starting a family,” she says. “People say, ‘Oh, that’s practice for parenting,’ but if it’s practice for anything it’s to be a mom to another puppy. We’ve decided that we are not really interested in having children.”
She continues, “It seems like it’s expected that you’d want to have kids. 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.”
Besides, there’s always the possibility the couple could decide to have kids one day, as Hendricks says, “There’s a small chance I could change my mind.”
