Although McAdams admitted that she wanted to wait until the time was right to start a family, stating she knew that this was the perfect time. On questioned whether she finds this new chapter of her life difficult, she explains”[People say] your life is not your own anymore. But I had 39 years of me, I was sick of me, I was so happy to put the focus on some other person.” When asked if she would consider more children she briefly stated “I think there is definitely room for more.”
