    She may have rocked a baby bump while staring in last years “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” but don’t expect to see Cameron Diaz to shopping in the maternity section in the near future. In a 2010 interview with Cosmopolitan UK, the 40-year-old star defended women who chose not to have children and expressed her own reluctance to become a mother. "I think women are afraid to say that they don't want children, because they're going to get shunned," the actress said. "Having children changes your life drastically, and I really love my life. Children aren’t the only things that bring you gratification and happiness, and it’s easier to give life than to give love, so I don’t know."

  • Deschanel

    Between being a movie star, performing in her band “Me & Him” and starring on the hit series “The New Girl,” Zooey Deschanel is far too busy to be on diaper duty. “That’s never been my focus,” the star told Marie Claire of becoming a mom in April 2012. “My sister [Emily Deschanel] was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids, but it was never an ambition, something, like, I need. ... I like working. That’s what I like doing. I like to work.”

  • Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeild

    Though they have been in a solid relationship since 1997, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt have little desire to start a family. Westfeldt’s 2012 film, “Friends with Kids,” in which Hamm appears, was inspired by the pair’s friendships with married couples who have children. “I never thought I’d be this age and not have kids. But my life has also gone in a million ways I never anticipated,” the actress/director told the New York Times last year. “I kept feeling like I’d wake up with absolute clarity, and I haven’t. And we have a pretty great life together. The chance that we’ll regret it doesn’t seem like a compelling enough reason to do it.”

Despite (or maybe because of) the attention that pregnant stars like Kim Kardashain get, “Smash” star Katherine McPhee is in no rush to become a celebrity mom. In a recent interview with Lucky, the “American Idol” runner-up said that, for now, she enjoys having time to herself.

"I once thought that by now I'd have lots of children, but actually I'm really enjoying being able to go from point A to point B, and the only worry I have is have my dogs being walked," the "American Idol" runner-up says. "I'm selfish right now, but that's how and where I should be. The thing is, work is the thing I love the most."

The 28-year-old, who married actor Nick Cockas in 2008, isn’t the only star that isn’t in a hurry to have kids.
