Chelsea Handler Says She Doesn't Have Time To Raise Kids (VIDEO)

Chelsea Handler is a woman who knows what she wants, and it doesn't involve children.

The 38-year-old has spoken candidly before about her decision to have an abortion at 16, and how she doesn't want to have kids.

On a recent episode of "The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet," Handler reiterated her feelings on the subject, explaining:

"I don't think I'd be a great mother. I don't want to have a kid and have it raised by a nanny. I don't have the time to raise a child," she said. "Childhood was heartbreaking enough for anybody. I don't know that I could handle my own child, especially if I had a girl, going through what I went through growing up. Not that it was so traumatic, but in many ways, it was in your own way."

The "Chelsea Lately" host has been very open about her intent to stay child-free. In 2011, she told Piers Mogan, "I'm not somebody that wants to be a mother. I have a lot of children in my life from my friends and family. I have no desire to have a child of my own. I just don't want to have a baby, I don't want to procreate and have my genes displayed in front of me."
