Diane Kruger Reveals What Changed Her Mind About Having Kids

Diane Kruger is speaking candidly about starting a family in her mid-thirties.

In a new interview, the 46-year-old actress admitted that she didn’t plan on having kids, but all of that changed when she hit her mid-thirties.

“You know, I don’t know. Maybe it is what people say about women and that time clock, just all of a sudden kicks in. I mean, the truth is I would’ve had a kid with or without a man attached,” Diane admitted on Dear Media’s Divorced Not Dead podcast.

“I remember starting to feel like [it] in my mid-thirties,” Diane recalled. “Like, ‘What am I doing all this for? Why am I running so hard, trying to make money and trying to live this life? What’s it all worth it?’”

“I was in a very serious relationship at the time. We tried very hard to have a child, which didn’t work out. And then, I was single, and I thought, ‘Oh, you know what? Maybe it’s just easier to do it on your own anyways.’ You don’t have to ask anyone for permission on schooling or where you’re gonna live. Let’s do it on your own.”

Diane then said that she was in the process of exploring different ways to become a mom when she started “casually dating” now-fiance Norman Reedus.

Diane and the 54-year-old Walking Dead actor started dating in 2016 and welcomed daughter Nova in November 2018.

“When we realized we were gonna have a baby, and naturally, it just became this. I mean, Nova truly happened when I was least expecting it and most needed it in my life,” Diane gushed. “She was the absolute best thing that’s ever happened to me, to us, to my life.”

Over the years, many celebrities have talked candidly about not wanting children.
