The daytime television veteran says that in 7th grade she decided to eventually have children, but not at the expense of her career.
“I knew from the time that I was pregnant that I was not going to be a stay-at-home mom,” King said in a Q&A for “CBS This Morning” Eye-Opening Mom’s series. “I love working and I happen to believe that if you’re happy in your life and you’re happy in what you’re doing, it makes you a better person, it makes you a better mother, it makes you a better partner and it makes you better at your job,” she added, reiterating a sentiment that she expressed in an interview with The Huffington Post last year.
The daytime television veteran also talks about her shortcomings in the kitchen.
“One of the biggest regrets I had was nutrition. I was terrible!” King said, blaming her inability to cook on her family’s heavy intake of processed foods. Though her 26-year-old daughter, Kirby, has course corrected, King says that if she could rear her children all over again, she would figure out a way to feed her children in a more healthful way.
