Vivica A. Fox Isn't Any Less Fulfilled As A Woman Just Because She Doesn't Have Kids

Having children doesn't make or break a woman.

Celebrity News

Vivica A. Fox has had a long, illustrious career in Hollywood starring in films like Independence Day and Kill Bill: Vol. 2. After putting skin in the game, she is now producing her own projects. She has partnered with Lifetime to produce 17 “Wrong” films for the network while also starring in them as well.

Her love life seems to also garner a lot of attention such as her relationship with 50 Cent and the back and forth public spat that followed after their breakup and her previous engagement to club promoter Omar “Slim” White.

However, with all of her accomplishments, people still want to know whether or not the 57-year-old will have kids. A TikTok video has been making its rounds on social media that shows Vivica being asked if she would consider adoption so that she can “leave a legacy.”

The Two Can Play That Game actress didn’t hold back when she answered the question. “I got six god-babies. Don’t think that because I didn’t birth children, that I don’t have children,” Vivica said. “I have six godchildren and I do not feel less fulfilled as a woman. Period. All I got to do is spend an afternoon with them.”

She continued, “I love children. Please do not get me wrong I absolutely love children. In my life, it was career or children and I have never met the man that I can have children with. I didn’t. Almost made that mistake and three months before my family was like, ‘You will not! You absolutely will not!’ and lost a whole bunch of money and deposits and this that and the third but I trust my family.”

The actress made it known that her godchildren are her children. “I have six godchildren that when God took away my opportunity to bear children, he sent my god-babies,” she said.

While she defended her decision on not having kids, not long ago the veteran actress did say that not having kids was her “biggest regret.”

Telling Oprah Winfrey on her Where Are They Now? series, she said, “That’s the biggest regret of my life that I have is that I didn’t have a child.”

“I’ll never forget seeing Halle Berry on the red carpet and she just had Nahla and I said, ‘Wow she’s so beautiful.’ She said, ‘Vivica if I knew then what I know now I would’ve had 5 of them.’ And she said ‘the joy that I see in her eyes is just like no other high that I ever experienced.’ I don’t get to see my eyes in a child and I think that’s something that I’ll miss.”

Rashida Jones

“I’m happy, but the fact that I'm not married and don't have kids — it's taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don't feel like I'm some sort of loser." — The Guardian, 2014

Aisha Tyler

"I wanted families [and] couples to know that it was a valid choice not to get on this crazy merry-go-round of IVF and tens and tens of thousands of dollars. I wanted people to feel—men and women—it's OK to say, ‘I love my marriage, I love my life, I choose not to have children.'" — Huff Post Live, 2014

Tracee Ellis Ross

"There are so many ways to curate happiness, find love and create a family, and we don't talk about them. It creates so much shame and judgment." — Porter, 2020

Oprah Winfrey

“I have not had one regret about that. I also believe that part of the reason why I don’t have regrets is because I got to fulfill it in the way that was best for me: the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. Those girls fill that maternal fold that I perhaps would have had. In fact, they overfill — I’m overflowed with maternal.” — People, 2019
