Oprah Winfrey has been the household name of everyone around the world.

She’s a super successful woman, but more to the point, she looks out for everyone and has a heart of gold.

Seems like the perfect woman to bring children into this world, right?

Well, Oprah recently opened up about the reason she’s never had children and we are more than just a little surprised.


Oprah sat down with Good HouseKeeping to talk about some issues close to her heart and while speaking about her Leadership Academy, she revealed why she's never wanted kids. 

"I have 172 girls, and 20 are in college in the United States and use my home as their home base. 

"For me it was perfect, because I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mum for babies. I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!"

We don't know how Oprah could ever think she'd be a bad mum! 

She's an angel. 

She opened up further about the pressure to have children and how she views her roles in charity as being a kind of mother. 

"When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them, because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children.

"Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age two, 10 or 20. If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works."

Oprah is a true guardian angel in so many people's lives.
