Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger has revealed her heartache over never having children. The 52-year-old, who has made a career out of playing cupid for high-rollers, says she wasn't 'lucky' enough to meet the right guy to start a family with at the right time. The Bravo reality star also admitted she terminated a pregnancy during her 20s because she didn't want to raise a child on her own.
When quizzed by a Twitter fan in a Q&A session with OK! magazine, she said: 'My biggest regret is that I didn't have children. I had an abortion in my 20s,' she admitted in the candid interview. 'I was pregnant and I didn't have enough money and I didn't think it was ok to have a child and be a single parent. And now look, everyone's doing it! 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. I [thought] I would have eventually found a guy, settled down, got the picket fence. I just didn't meet person at the right time, I wasn't that lucky, like a lot of other people.'
Patti, who has never married, is in a relationship with former baseball player turned mortgage broker David Krause. The pair met online in March 2012 and while they are not officially engaged, she does wear a 'promise ring' on her wedding finger. Patti was previously engaged to real estate executive Andy Friedman, but after a seven year relationship they split up in 2010 as he did not want children.
ONTD, do you have any regrets?
