Some have accused teenager Courtney Stodden of rushing into marriage with Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison.
Their union raised eyebrows as the Doug, 51, is more than three times the 16-year-old's age.
Krista Stodden gave her daughter's marriage her blessing, but says she will do no such thing to the prospect of them starting a family.
She told RadarOnline: 'She's making sure as much as she can at this time that it isn't happening.
'She's on birth control because she would prefer to wait for children.
'I think Doug would love to have children, but Courtney wants to wait a few years.
'Courtney wants to work on her career.'
But despite her insistence that her daughter will be waiting a few years before starting a family, she added that she would not be enraged if there was an accidental pregnancy.
She said: 'If something happens we do not believe in abortion, so if God blesses them that would be OK, but they're not trying for a baby now.'
Krista also admitted that she is looking forward to becoming a grandmother further down the line.
She said: 'The baby would be so creative. Doug is brilliant, so creative and they both would pass on so many creative genes.'
And she said the love-birds were finding the transition to married life exciting, with her housework averse daughter even learning some new skills.
She said: 'Doug and Courtney have a lot of exciting projects they're working on and their home life is wonderful.
'Courtney never showed any interest in cooking or cleaning, she always wanted a career so Doug takes care of all of the housework.
Krista has previously defended the pair's union in the face of public criticism.
She said: 'Doug is a wonderful man and we love him. They are very much in love and we are so supportive of this.
'Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl.'
Courtney and Doug married in Las Vegas in June. The legal age for marriage in Las Vegas is 18, however with parental consent it drops to 16
