TV star Muireann O’Connell opens up on pressure on women to 'hurry up' to have kids
The presenter says she doesn't feel the need to tick off boxes at certain times in her life
TV presenter Muireann O’Connell has spoken about society’s expectations on women - and how her friends have told her she’d want to “hurry up” if she wants kids.
But the Limerick-born presenter said she prefers to live life at her own pace, especially when it comes to making big decisions.
“I'm a little bit older, I don't have kids. I'm in that space that I think an awful lot of people are in, where it's like I should have everything worked out and sorted,” the thirtysomething presenter said in an interview with Irish Country Magazine.
“Like the rules of the game are you know what's happening in your life at this stage. But I don't know what's happening in my life at this stage.”
However, the Virgin Media star added that she doesn’t feel the need to bow to pressure to have ticked off boxes at certain points in her life.
