Mary-Kate Olsen—who shot to fame after starring in the ‘90s sitcom Full House—is apparently ready to be a mom. The 27-year-old child-star-turned-fashionista has been dating her much older man, 44-year-old banker Olivier Sarkozy, for the past year and a half, and now wants to take their May-December relationship to the next level. According to an insider, Olsen wants to have kids with Sarkozy, but isn’t in any rush to get married first. “She’d like to get pregnant, but isn’t so sure about marriage,” a source told Us Weekly.
Sarkozy already has two kids, aged 12 and 10, from his previous marriage, and Olsen reportedly thinks he’s a “great dad,” although the source says it’s his relationship with Olsen that’s responsible for that. “Mary-Kate has made him a better father,” said the insider. “She remembers all the kids’ special events.”
Although marriage doesn’t sound like an option for this celebrity couple right now, they are already living together in their $6.25 million house in New York City. They moved in only three months after they started dating, much to the dismay of Sarkozy’s ex-wife, who openly slammed their May-December relationship, calling it “grotesque” and “not right.”
If the celebrity couple does end up having kids of their own, you can be sure they won’t grow up in the spotlight, like Olsen did. “I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all,” she said in a recent interview, likening her and her twin sister, Ashley, to “little monkey performers,” adding, “I would never wish my upbringing on anyone.”
What do you think: Would you try for kids without getting married first?
