Kristin Davis says she's contemplating motherhood

05/21/2008 at 07:25 AM ET

Kristindavix_jesse_14167332_max_cbbIn the June issue of Health magazine, Sex and the City actress Kristin Davis says that she’d love to experience motherhood someday, either biologically or through adoption.  She’s not quite as baby-obsessed as Charlotte, her character in the popular television series and soon-to-be film, opening May 30, however.  Kristin tells Health that she while she would "love to have children," she still has some work to do on herself and that "if I’m going to be a single mother, I don’t want to take it lightly.

Still, her work in Africa as a global ambassador for Oxfam International has only served to enhance her desire.  It’s also made it clear to her in what scenarios she would pursue an adoption, and in which scenarios she would not.

After my first trip, my friends asked, ‘Where’s the baby?’ And I said, ‘We didn’t go to any orphanages,’ which doesn’t mean I wasn’t tempted. But I’d see children who were being cared for by their grandmothers and older siblings, and I wouldn’t want to take them away from that.

Kristin, 43, said she’s also "absolutely" against the idea of bringing home a baby only to hand the baby off to a nanny.  Her SATC co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, mom to James Wilkie, 5 ½, and Cynthia Nixon, mom to Samantha, 11 ½, and Charles, 5 ½, are great role models.  Said Kristin,

Sarah and Cynthia are very, very hands-on mothers, and it’s been amazing to watch them be able to do it. But if I’m by myself, then I’ll have to be the provider and the good mother. I’d still like to find a man and have a baby with him if that’s possible. I haven’t given up.

I’m not exactly sure how old Cynthia Nixon’s daughter is, but I’m pretty sure she was born before 2006. I think the daughter is actually the older of her 2 children.

I don’t watch SATC but I’ve always liked Kristin Davis the most out of all of them for some reason. I’d love to see her have a baby! She seems to sweet and down-to-earth.

Wow, I’m surprised she’s 43 ??!! She looks 10 or so years younger than that! I had no idea. Obviously then, the pursuit of having a baby naturally could be more difficult for her. In any event, I wish her the best, whichever way she chooses to fulfill her desire!

I definitely agree with her on the nanny statement. A nanny could never replace a hands-on mother.

Tic toc tic toc. What’s that sound?lol Oh my gosh 43! I knew she was around that age, but I would be itching to have a baby if i was her. I hope she does have a baby either bio or through adoption someday. She seems like she would be a good mom.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
