Kaley Cuoco: ‘We love kids & animals so we’re meant to have children’

Last week, Kaley Cuoco marked her three-month wedding anniversary with equestrian hubby Karl Cook. She also posted a photo to Instagram with Karl and a baby and dog in tow, neither of which belong to them.

On Saturday, Entertainment Tonight caught up with Kaley at the Ninth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic and asked if she was hoping to expand her brood beyond horses and dogs. She replied, “I’m definitely – I’m not there yet,” adding, “I’m not quite there yet but I know that I will be ’cause I love kids. But I’m a worker bee right now — kind of my career is my focus and my husband. But, we love kids and we love animals so we’re meant to have children.”

Kaley does have a new project to focus on, as she is voicing the character of Harley Quinn for a new animated series for streaming service DC Universe. She’s also serving as an executive producer on the series, which is aimed towards an adult audience. The announcement about the new show was made on Wednesday at New York Comic-Con.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kaley admitted, “I’ve always loved animation. I did it years ago, and I haven’t been in the animation world in a while. [Harley Quinn] is so edgy, it’s obviously a very adult comedy, and with such a world-renowned character, it’s been a blast to record.”

She went on to say that working on the show has been “empowering“ for her, explaining that, “To sit in a booth and scream and cuss and yell at boys for hours at a time, it has been an absolute blast.”

Kaley spelled out some other benefits to her new role, telling EW, “Not having to do hair and makeup has made it that much better.” Okay, I’m jealous.

For someone who seems a little.. impetuous about relationships, it’s good that Kaley’s taking some time before bringing a little human into the world. That being said, she has proven that she truly loves animals, and I think when she and Karl decide, she’ll probably be a great mother.

    Still some weird body language when snapped with her husband…

    I know that she has made some questionable decisions with her relationships/marriages but I truly feel like she is a good woman who is just addicted to love and the honeymoon period of relationships. With that being said, her current husband seems like a great match for her. I’m also glad that she is not making kids a priority right now and letting herself work it out on her own time and terms. I only wish her and her husband happiness whether they choose to have children or not.

      Thanks for your comment. Two geniuses same thoughts. 😉

      Cuoco has to move forward with new projects because her show the big bang theory has just ended. Perhaps she doesn’t want kids yet because it would look as if she retired from acting / became a mother and housewife.

    “Meant to have children?” Ugh. Loving other people’s kids and animals is cool and all, but it is not a good predictor of parenting skills. I know plenty of people who should not have had kids when they did, and I bet every last one of them would agree that they love kids and animals too. At least Kaley seems to know that now is not the right time for her.

    Plus, lots of people WANT to have kids but end up not having them for one reason or another. While her statements were clearly off the cuff, in the future she might do better to avoid words that imply a preordained result.

      I agree, it’s cringeworthy. That said, she seems sweet and hopefully things will work out for them.

      Wha? Kaley seems like she’s perfectly equipped to be a good mother. Parenthood is something most of us are capable of. It’s not some elite activity that only a select few can do.

      And I do think that the amount of care she puts into her extremely large group of animals does indicate that she’s got the patience and inclination to devote herself to the care of dependent beings. For some of us, that’s a little bit more of a challenge.

    I’m studying to be a veterinarian because I love children. #becauseImablondeyeahyeahyeah

    I tend to find her grating, but I’m trying to be a nicer person, so I will say this: her current husband seems so much more well-suited for her than her first. They do seem happy and you can tell they both love and care for their animals well. They will make lovely parents when/if they decide to have children.

  6. Patty says:

    Watch her turn out to be the type who loves kids until she has her own. Generally speaking, people who say stuff like that have an idealized view of what being a parent is like. And they aren’t prepared for the actual day to day work of parenting; but they are crazy wealthy and they’ll be able to afford the best help and nannies.

  7. NeoCleo says:

    She strikes me as a nice but not particularly bright person. She’s set financially for her life and dozens more. I wonder what it’s like to make that kind of money off your looks. I’ll never know, that’s for sure.

  8. Apalapa says:

    I get the sense her marriage to the tennis guy was really abusive and it’s sort of a red flag to me to get remarried so fast after that guy? But..what do I know!

    She said if her left her tomorrow shed be fine, im sure she meant that differently but that does not sound right
