Throughout season nine, Barney, who had just married Eddie Judge, was seen having several conversations with her co-stars about the possibility of having another child, but according to a source, she was never really considering the idea.
Barney “doesn’t want another baby, no way,” an insider told Radar Online on July 28. “It’s all for a storyline for the show. Tamra doesn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night for feedings and diaper changes! It’s the last thing that she wants."
Barney is already the mother to four children, one of which has a baby of his own on the way. Earlier this month, Barney's oldest child, son Ryan Vieth, announced via Instagram that he and his fiancé, Sarah Rodriguez would be welcoming their first child together (the fourth child for Rodriguez). Barney's other children, meanwhile, are caught in what has become a nasty custody battle between Barney and her ex-husband, Simon.
Either way, the source says Barney doesn't -- and didn't -- want any more kids and only made it seem that way for the show.
“After Eddie and Tamra had been dating for a few months, he actually asked her how she felt about having more kids,” the source said. “At that point, Eddie very much wanted to have kids with her. However, that is no longer the case. Even if Tamra could have kids — which she can’t, because she had her tubes tied several years ago — Eddie doesn’t want that added responsibility.”
Also on July 28, Radar Online shared a story, which claimed Barney and Judge weren't in a good place. Within hours, Barney denied the claim on her Facebook page.
