Millionaire Matchmaker is back for another season and, as always, Patti Stanger remains far more fascinating than any of the couples she brings together. Although she loves her high-profile career, the relationship expert recently admitted regretting her choice to skip out on motherhood.
Patti Stanger as a mother? It doesn’t seem a likely role for the popular reality star, but then again, we’re just accustomed to seeing her solely as a matchmaker. Keep in mind, Patti’s last breakup was supposedly spurred by then boyfriend Andy Friedman’s lack of desire for children.
And that brings us to Patti’s biggest regret, recently revealed in a Q&A for OK Magazine: not having children. The celebrity admitted that, when she was younger, she’d always assumed that the only way to have kids was within the confines of a traditional marriage. But she failed to meet “the right person at the right time,” so she believed she also missed her opportunity for a family.
If Patti’s motherhood regrets are surprising, get this — the reality star had an abortion when she was younger. Sharing her reasoning behind the difficult decision, Patti explained, “‘I was pregnant and I didn’t have enough money and I didn’t think it was ok to have a child and be a single parent.”
Although she doesn’t appear to be pursuing her dream of motherhood (hey Patti, there’s always adoption!), the celebrity is enjoying a very close relationship with current flame, David Krause. The two just might wind up making it official in the near future, as Patti’s already sporting a promise ring from her beau.
