TV chef Delia Smith has spoken out about why she didn’t start a family and how it’s affected her cooking career.
The 69-year-old TV cook and major shareholder of Norwich City football club, admitted, “Yes, I would have loved to have children,” but added, “It wasn’t to be, but I have loved what I’ve been able to do by not having children.”
Delia also believes that she may not have been as successful as she is today if she’d become a mum. “I think if I’d had a family, I would have gone wholeheartedly into being a mother,” Delia explained. “Maybe one of the reasons I’ve been so successful in my career is down to the fact I haven’t had any children.”
Delia also said she thought women “couldn’t have it all” – do you agree with her?
