“If you could relive one moment in your life, the moment that brought you the greatest satisfaction, thrill, sadness perhaps, [what would it be]?” Piers asked Barbara on his CNN Piers Morgan Interview. Barbara decided to share a heartbreaking revelation.
“Can I tell you what I regret when you’re talking that way?” she interjected, visibly choked up at the thought. “I regret not having more children.”
Barbara Walters Wished For Larger Family After Sister’s Death
Barbara’s emotion about her family stems from losing her only sister so long ago. “I would have loved to have had a bigger family. I have one daughter. I don’t have brothers and sisters,” she said, before adding, “I had a sister that I loved and she was developmentally challenged, I guess, is how they put it.” Barbara’s sister, who was named Jacqueline just like her daughter, passed away in 1985.
Barbara has been thinking about her family most as she takes on the unknown that will come from her retirement, admitting “I don’t know exactly what it’s going to be like when I stop working.”
