Stop it Oprah, stop it right now. You are mother to us all.
Even though we may not live in your home, your advice and guidance about what and what not to do is instilled in all of us. Super Soul Sunday anyone? Oh the lessons.
But Oprah herself is talking motherhood, and despite helping millions, she has no regrets about never becoming a mother. While she’s has never had biological children of her own, she tells the April issue of Good Housekeeping U.K. that the closest she’s come is being called “MomO” by the students in her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.
“I have 172 girls, and 20 are in college in the United States and use my home as their home base. It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined,” she gushes. “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."
That's a fact.
O and her long time partner, Stedman Graham, have a full life together with plenty of dogs and her best friend Gayle King and her two grown children, whom Oprah is godmother to.
“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,” wise Oprah says. “If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.”
The 63-year-old talk queen revealed that she thinks she wouldn’t make a good mother to a biological child.
“I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies,” she says. “I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!”
