Rachael Ray Is Being Pressured By Her Family To Have A Baby

Wed, December 22, 2010 10:00am EDT by 9 Comments

The queen of quick cooking says she’s too busy to have a baby — but her family disagrees. They’re pushing her to have a baby or adopt. Should they back off?

Rachael Ray earned $15 million last year as a chef on the Food Network and as a talk show host. She says that running her empire keeps her too busy to focus on starting a family, but her very own father is speaking out in the hopes that she’ll take some time off to have a baby. “I think Rachael would make a great mom,” her dad, Jim Ray, tells the National Enquirer. “But she just won’t discuss it. I asked her about it a year or so ago and she made a joke and dropped the subject.”

Besides writing cookbooks, hosting her talk show and filming episodes of 15 Minute Meals, Rachael, 42, keeps busy chasing after the dog she and husband John Cusimano share. “Rachel tells [her dog] Isaboo, ‘Tell grandpa hello.’ Isaboo and I have a wonderful grandfather-granddaughter relationship,” Jim says about the pit bull.

Sure, dogs and work keep her busy, but according to an ex-boyfriend there’s an even bigger reason that Rachael isn’t rushing to have a baby. Joseph Mills told the Enquirer in 2006 that Rachael was unable to conceive. “I know that today, with all her success, Rachael is crushed by the knowledge she is unable to have children,” he said.

“While Rachael claims having children is not a priority, I think deep down she is hurting,” a source tells the tabloid. Despite her reported inability to have her own baby, the source says that she’s even opposed to adopting. “The whole family will be with Rachael and John during the holidays. But they all know better than to suggest Rachael adopt a child. It just gets her upset, and no one wants to spoil the get-togethers.”

It’s Rachael and John’s prerogative whether or not they want to adopt, but I can’t help but think that a child would be very lucky to have them as parents. Do you agree, HollyMoms?

I think is too late to have her own children plus is unable to conceive; she’s not young anyways and is a risk. Nobody knows why she didn’t try when she was young, selfish, money first? However is it sad no to have kids.

I do not think she should do it due to pressure, but as she ages and things slow down for her she and her husband will have no family of their own and I think then she will realize that she made a mistake. Yeah she is making a lot of money, but money can’t buy you love and hapiness. Not like the love of children and grandchildren. Today most women opt to have it all and there is no reason she should short change herself.

I think we should respect her decision of NOT wanting to have children. Parenthood is a HUGE responsibility, not everybody is willing to endure.

I AGREE. I WAS IN MY 40’S WHEN I HAD MY SON AND HE IS A SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD AND TAKES A OT OF TIME AND PATIENCE. I AM DISABLED MYSELF AND SO ITS VERY HARD. ITS A LOT OF PRESSURE AND SO I CAN UNDERSTAND HOW RACHAEL AND JOHN HAVE COMING TO THIS DECISION. GOOD LUCK TO THEM AND BLESS THEM FOR MAKING THE DECISION THAT IS BEST FOR THEM.

Lots of children would be lucky to have certain people as parents, but if they don’t want to do it, then drop it.
