Vivica Fox Opens Up About Motherhood and Love Life

The actress admits her biggest regret is not having a child.

Published October 14, 2014

Vivica Fox recently sat down with Oprah Winfrey on an episode of Where Are They Now? and the actress shared her biggest regret in life: not having experienced motherhood. The 50-year-old actress revealed that she's a great godmother, but wishes she had her own child to raise.

"Oh yeah, I bring the best gifts and throw the best parties. If that's the one thing that I have a regret about, that would be that I didn't have a child," Fox said.

When Oprah expressed surprise at her response, Fox explained how she felt after talking with Halle Berry about motherhood.

"I'll never forget seeing Halle on the red carpet and she'd just had Nahla. And I said, 'Wow she is so beautiful.' She said, 'Vivica if I knew then what I know now, I would've had five of them.' And she said, ‘The joy I see in her eyes is just like no other high that I've ever experienced.’ So, I don't get to see my eyes in a child."

Fox also dived into her love life and what she's learned about relationships.

"Just to have a little bit more patience. Not to basically fall in love so quick. I have a tendency — I would jump into the shallow end of the pool head first. Now I'm a little bit more cautious with getting to know people, especially for my love life," Fox said before detailing what she'd like in a partner.

"Gosh, a man more than anything else. I had to learn to stop dating little boys. I had to learn to stop falling in love with a six pack and a smile, honey. It used to just be the curse for your girl. I did honey. If a six pack and smile came my way, I was just the worse."
