Dr. Jackie Walters Reflects on Not Having Children: "It's Never Too Late"

The Married to Medicine OBGYN discusses her decision to not start a family.

Does Dr. Jackie Regret Not Having Children?

With a loving husband, a successful career, and a sure-to-be-gorgeous new home in the works, Dr. Jackie Walters seems to have it all.

How to Watch

Watch Married to Medicine now streaming on Peacock and the Bravo App.

However, as we learned during the latest episode of Married to Medicine, nobody's life is completely perfect. As Dr. Contessa Metcalfe told Dr. Jackie how much she admired her for having it all so together, the OBGYN admitted that there's one thing in life she hasn't gotten the chance to experience. "The one thing I didn't get was motherhood," Dr. Jackie opened up to her friend. "And so we all have to find a balance because we're all missing some parts of the equation." 

Dr. Jackie shared during the October 20 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she regrets not starting a family. "It's always very hard. Yes, I really do," she said in the above clip. "I wish I had come up with something creative. But at the same time I did not seek motherhood, I was making sure I was free of cancer. And so I had breast cancer not once but twice when I of course was rendered infertile from the chemo. And so that was really important to me to make sure I was healthy."

However, she noted, "It's never too late."

Dr. Jackie previously explored the possibility of adopting a child in Season 2 of Married to Medicine, but her husband, Curtis Berry, wasn't on board with the idea. As one of Atlanta's most famous OBGYNs, Dr. Jackie has helped bring a lot of little ones into the world, including the children of The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kandi Burruss and Eva Marcille.
