Chelsea Handler doesn't want children.
The 38-year-old chat show host admitted work is her priority and she doesn't want to have kids and then have them raised by a nanny while she is busy.
Speaking on 'The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet', she explained: ''I definitely don't want to have kid. I don't think I'd be a great mother. I don't want to have a kid and have it raised by a nanny. I don't have the time to raise a child.
''Childhood was heartbreaking enough for anybody. I don't know that I could handle my own child, especially if I had a girl, going through what I went through growing up. Not that it was so traumatic, but in many ways, it was in your own way.''
While she has had an on/off romance with hotelier Andre Balazs over the past few years, Chelsea now believes the pair have worked out their differences and she says they are happier than ever.
She said: ''We had some troubles in the beginning because we were both fighting who the other person was. Everything you like about somebody you end up detesting about them. . . Finally, we both calmed down and then we were able to come together in a much different way. But I'm grateful to be in an adult relationship because I always figured, 'Oh, I'll just have sex with a bunch of guys and have my career.'''
