The author and her partner, funnyman Ricky Gervais, both agreed that children weren’t for them – and they were grateful to know they were both on the same page.
In an essay for The Guardian in 2016, she wrote frankly about their decision:
“Thankfully, my partner, Ricky, felt the same [about parenting] — not that I would make a terrible mother, or if he did think that he thoughtfully kept that to himself, but that he wasn’t keen on parenthood, either. We were happy with our decision and we still are.”
Of course, the paper decided to focus on her tongue-in-cheek comment about never being a grandparent being a “disastrous oversight”!
