Melissa Rivers Has Been Considering Adoption for Years: It's 'Not Something I'm Taking Lightly'

Melissa Rivers is opening up about her adoption process.

Rivers, 53, shares 20-year-old son 库柏 (now a junior in college) with ex-husband John Endicott (the two wed in 1998 在分裂之前 2003), and on the Dear Media podcast Divorced Not Dead 在六月, she indicated that shewould love to have another child, and I don’t feel like I need to be married to do that.

She explains on the Chanel in the City with Chanel Omari 播客 this week that she hasbeen thinking about it for a very long time.

Been thinking about it for about six years now. 你懂, certain times it feels like the absolute right decision, certain times it doesn’t feel like the right decision,” 她说. “It’s obviously not something I’m taking lightly. I would say I’m about 80 percent there. What really stops me is would it be fair for the child to have, 你知道, unfortunately now, a little bit of an older parent?”

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, because I’m certainly very active,” continues Rivers, “… but it’s a lot to think about. There’s a lot of very important things to think about. 是的, there’s a few things I’m still grappling with.

I wish I had listened to my mother, who wanted me to retrieve eggs while I was in my 30s,” 她说. “我像, ‘不, 不, 不, 不, 不, 不。’ 现在我就像, ‘I should have done it!’ But so be it. 再次, I am very close to yes but there’s a few things that still keep me up at night.

早在 2017, Rivers told PEOPLE that herbiggest regret as a parent was not having more children.” 她当时补充说, “I love it — I love being a mom. I always tell [我的儿子] it’s the best thing I’ve ever done, just having him.
