99-year-old Betty White never had children
She was married to her third husband, Allen Ludden for the longest period of time. They were married from 1963 until his death in 1981. While they didn’t have children together, Betty did help raise his three children.
When asked if she regrets never having children of her own, she said, “No, I’ve never regretted [not having kids]. I’m so compulsive about stuff. I know if I had ever gotten pregnant, of course, that would have been my whole focus. But I didn’t choose to have children because I’m focused on my career. I just don’t think, as compulsive as I am, that I could manage both.”
