“Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger recently dished on her biggest regret and opened up about her abortion, according to a Dec. 27 E! News report. The upscale matchmaker has all the right answers for lonely millionaires, but when it comes to her own personal life, Stanger has a few regrets.
In a fan social media Q&A moderated by OK!, the 52-year-old outspoken matchmaker admitted to the biggest regret of her life. “My biggest regret is I didn't have children.” She explained that she had been pregnant before in her early twenties, but chose to have an abortion for several reasons.
“I didn't have enough money, and I didn't think it was OK to have a child and be a single parent,” she recalled. “Now look, everybody's doing that. And I think that I didn't find the right guy at the right time to have one with, I guess, but I don't think I would adopt and be single.”
Continuing on, Stanger added, “I think I would've eventually found a guy, settled down, got the picket fence, and I just didn't meet the right person at the right time. I wasn't lucky like a lot of other people. And that's my biggest regret, not having kids.”
But all is not lost for Stanger when it comes to becoming a mother.
Fox News reported in 2012 that the “Millionaire Matchmaker” star was planning on adopting a baby. “I just feel an affinity for a child who is starting to understand the world without a mom or a dad. It breaks my heart. There are so many children in America who don’t have homes because they’re not babies. And I’m open to an older child too, three-to-five years old,” Stanger told Fox News. /
“I would like a boy because I want to raise him to be a gentleman, but I will take any child that comes to me – girl or boy – or even twins.”
