For hundreds of years, women have been valued for our reproductive capabilities - and it's easy to get caught up in the societal expectation of settling down and starting a family.
However, thanks to multiple waves of feminism and women's movements, we know that the conventional path does not have to be taken.
While many stars say their lives felt incomplete before they started a family, other successful celebrities have decided not to have kids - and they couldn't be happier.
Whether it's because they couldn't become mothers for reasons out of their control, or they never had any interest in having kids, these celebrities have spoken out about their decisions to remain child-free.
