Oprah Winfrey, 63, says she has no regrets over not having children with her partner of thirty years Stedman Graham, because she doesn’t have the ‘patience’.
The star famously founded the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, a boarding school in South Africa which opened in 2007 and houses 172 girls.

She told Good Housekeeping magazine that the project makes her feel as though she has children of her own.

She said: ‘It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined. I was doing this to help them, but it has brought a light to my life that I can’t explain…
‘When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them, because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children.
Oprah has previously spoken about a premature baby she lost when she was just aged 14, who she named Canaan.

She’s forged a career as an incredible successful media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.
