Bo Derek: Why my unconventional lifestyle drove me to decide against having children.

Bo Derek, 66, has explained why she chose not to become a parent. The actress, most known for her appearance in “Bolero,” remarked that her unusual and chaotic childhood made her difficult to contemplate being a mother.

Derek stated that she believed children should have the opportunity to grow up with both dedicated parents. She admitted, however, that her personal life lacked the steadiness necessary for parenthood. “There were times when I wouldn’t even have a dog because my life was so crazy, let alone having a child,” he said.

It’s astonishing that Derek had no ambition of becoming an actor. She had anticipated a carefree future, maybe working in a surf store. When the opportunity to work in the entertainment business arose, she found it disturbing. Derek declined tempting offers to become an actor.

Derek’s first spouse was actor John Derek, and they were married from 1976 to 1998. She and actor John Corbett have been in a serious commitment since 2002. The couple has no desire to conceive a family. Derek did, however, discuss the possibility of adoption later on. She tells them to consider adopting a kid because it is a viable choice.

The couple’s marriage and desire to create a family have not been rushed. Although starting a family and adding a new branch to the family tree is a huge commitment, Derek stated in a Fox News interview that it has not yet been a part of their lives.

When questioned about their relationship, Derek claimed it was wonderful and that their attraction to one another sprang from “comfort.” She also recalled how cheerful and vibrant John Corbett was, and how he made her laugh. Derek believes they still have a strong relationship and are beginning to feel at home.

Bo Derek chose not to have children because she desired a steady, unusual lifestyle. Despite her belief that children benefit from having two committed parents, she admits that her personal circumstances make it difficult to be a consistent parent. Derek and John Corbett may continue to enjoy their future adoption now that they have established their commitment to one other.
