Handler, appearing on The Rosie Show, said she tried to persuade her parents she should have carried the child, initially.
“I was so delusional. I was like, ‘I’m ready for a baby,’” said Handler, 36. “I was trying to argue with my parents and they were like, ‘You don’t understand. You’re throwing your entire life away. You’re not having a child right now. This is not what our family’s about. You know, you’re supposed to create a life for yourself, and we want you to enjoy your life and not be raising a child. And we’re certainly not going to raise it for you.’”
“It wasn’t a life-defining negative,” Rosie said.
“I wouldn’t be a good mother,” said Handler, who has no kids. “You should do whatever you want with your body and you shouldn’t let anyone tell you what to do.
“It’s your decision.”
