Telling Yo on E! that "having a kid is a commitment for life," songstress Mariah Carey says she’s just not ready to take the plunge into motherhood and that she "wouldn’t [have a baby] because it’s part of a trend." Being responsible for a pet is a challenge in and of itself, Mariah says, adding,
I really would have to be very, very positive that I was in a place where I could completely focus and put everything into the job of being someone’s mommy, because it’s hard enough to have a puppy.
When asked by host Michael Yo if she has a ‘deadline’ for kids, Mariah laughed, replying "I don’t really think that exists anymore." The 38-year-old added that "whatever is meant to be will be."
