Kelly Brook does not want to marry Jeremy Parisi because she likes to be “spontaneous”.
The 41-year-old model and presenter insists that getting married or having children with her boyfriend is not on her “bucket list” as she believes it will keep her from doing the things that she loves most loves.
She said, “I have a bucket list and I have to say that a wedding isn’t on it. I have a feeling that marriage and having kids are not things I wanted. I like traveling and being with my partner I like animals, work and be independent, and I like my freedom, I like to be spontaneous!
“There are so many things I love that I think marriage and children would keep me from doing them. I try to imagine what it would be like and when you have kids it’s a big commitment. It’s very hard to change your ways when you get to you’re forty and I don’t think it’s for everyone. I’m not saying never, it’s just not on my radar. I think about it every now and then, then I quickly forget. “
Kelly recently turned 40 and admits that after reaching this milestone she has a new “acceptance” of herself and feels very happy to have reached her fourth decade of life.
Speaking to the Sunday People’s Love Sunday magazine, she added, “When you turn 40, you become very accepting of yourself. You look around, pat yourself on the shoulder and think you did it. I’m still here and I still do what I love. I have a nice partner, I have a cute dog, I have my health and I got through the most stressful year anyone has ever known For all of these reasons, I’m just so grateful to be still here and keep going. It is a privilege to grow old – it cannot be taken for granted. “
