Ina Garten’s life is a delicious one ― and as the “Barefoot Contessa” and cookbook queen, she never felt like she needed to have kids for it to be that way.
“We decided not to have children,” she told Couric. “I really appreciate that other people do, and we will always have friends that have children that we are close to, but it was a choice I made very early. I really felt ― I feel ― that I would have never been able to have the life I’ve had. So it’s a choice and that was the choice I made.”
Never change, Ina.
