Donna Mills Talked Out About Parenthood At The Pinnacle Of Her Profession

Donna Mills, an American actress, talked out about parenthood during the height of her career in the entertainment business. The 81-year-old actress, best known for her role as Abby Fairgate on Knots Landing, spoke to People Magazine about her career in Hollywood and becoming a mother in her 50s. Donna Mills said that her life, which had previously been centered on her business, transformed once she adopted her daughter Chloe, who is now 27.

“I was really focused on my profession, but after a while, I felt there was something lacking – a kid. So I pursued it. She was four days old when I adopted her. I was 54 at the time, and people told me, ‘You’re going to be so old [to] have a tiny baby running about.’ That was never my experience. I never felt older than the other moms, who were most likely in their twenties.”

Donna Mills urged people to think about having a child later in life. “Having a kid later in life is preferable to having a child early in life if you wish to contribute to your job.” Mills said that despite the passage of time, she and her daughter remain extremely close. According to the Secret Storm actor, she and Chloe communicate every day and visit each other at least once a week. Donna Mills left the company for 18 years to be with her daughter and raise her kid on her own. Although she acknowledged working in her early years, things changed as Chloe became older.

“But when daughter began school, I knew I couldn’t leave town for two months at a time. And I didn’t become a mother to hand over my child to a nanny.”

Donna Mills and her longtime companion Larry Gilman reared their now 27-year-old daughter.
