Chelsea Handler has no desire to start a family, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Not every adult is prime parenting material, and many factors play into a woman’s willingness to have a baby.
- Income status
- Inability to find a life partner
- Mental health priorities
- Fear of parenthood
The 47-year-old comic, who went from wacky to woke in recent years, felt the need to defend her child-free status earlier this month.
Handler’s video, which initially appeared during her guest-hosting stint on the low-rated “Daily Show,” went viral in a hurry.

Being childless sounds like paradise, at least according to Handler.
The clip spawned a sea of responses, with conservatives lashing out at the clip’s defensive posture. The media, of course, framed Handler’s video in the most positive manner possible.
Others saw fit to make their own comic responses.
YouTube sensation JP Sears flexed his social media might with this funny retort.

“Not having kids empowers me to stay an immature kid myself,” Sears says in the video while chasing a gaggle of chickens. The clip leans hard into narcissism, shared in Sears’ sing-song cadence.
It wasn’t the only comic retort to Handler’s video.
The Babylon Bee’s Chandler Juliet also created a response to the viral video. Juliet, a rising star best known for the Bee’s “Californians Move to Texas” clip series, stars in an influencer-style video about the joy of a baby-free existence.
The title itself sets the stage: “A Day In The Life Of A Childless Woman Who Is NOT AT ALL MISERABLE”
Juliet’s kid-free life teems with prescription medication and numbing premarital sex.
The Bee clip has generated north of 300,000 on YouTube over a four-day period while Sears’ Instagram clip garnered 50K likes.
