In a recent interview with Rolling Out, Regina Hall opened up about her role in the upcoming film The Best Man Holiday and how it made her think about relationships and wanting to raise a family someday. The actress, 42, said she feels the pull towards motherhood, but tries not to become antsy about her desires.
"I want a family. I look forward to having kids one day and having a great partnership," Hall said. "I'd love to raise a son. I think I'd like to offer the world an amazing Black man. But then again, I try my best not to think about it too much, because what can I do about it? It is something that's important to me though, and something that I pray can be a part of my journey here.
"The movie [The Best Man Holiday] made me think about relationships where I want the other person to know that there is nothing but love. But more than anything, it made me want to take more time with my family while we're all here, and not take for granted my own health, and my own life," she added.
Hall also discussed how little fame really meant to her and on her relationship with God.
"I mean, when you really think about it, we have control over so little … Hollywood stars included. People may think that we have control over everything, but then your eyes blink, and your blood circulates … the divine power that holds everything together — that makes the sun rise, the stars glisten, and the tides flow — when you think about all of that, then you just have to know that there is something bigger than you. The blessing in being able to have faith in that helps to make sense of life even when it doesn't."
