“Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel like it’s a mistake for people to get married and then just [have kids right away]. I feel like it is the pressure of the family making them do it. We want to travel and be able to fly on an airplane without a baby and just have freedom.”
Another reason for waiting – their busy schedules. Paul shares that how they try to balance careers with their marriage.
“We try to stay together as much as we can. I’ll [sometimes] go to set with her and she’ll come with me to the studio.
“You just have to make the other person a priority over your work, which is a very controversial statement, I guess,” Nikki says. “People, especially in this business, don’t think that’s a good idea, but that’s what you have to do.”
Nikki took to Twitter to clarify some of the comments she made to the reporter of this story. Nikki writes:
Hey! I wanted to take a moment to clarify something that I said to a journalist recently. I’m often asked when Paul and I are going to start a family. Natural question to ask a newly married couple. I recently responded that for us, having a child right away would be a mistake. Anyone who knows me knows that I never speak for other people. I only speak for myself. To each their own. So for those of you who thought that I was passing judgement on when/where/how to have children, that’s not what I’m about. I wish everyone healthy and happy families on your own time and in your own way!
