“I love being around my kids. I’m not a particularly solitary person. I like a big, chaotic household — noise, commotion, laughter!” said Couric, who has two daughters Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 16.
Her biggest regret? “Sometimes I think I should have had six kids. Or I wish I’d had one [more] at 37, but I was busy. My career,” she revealed.
Couric told the magazine she is going through menopause and it has been a transition for her. “I think emotionally and psychologically, it’s weird to feel like, ‘Gosh, my childbearing years are over.’ And of course they’ve been over for a long time, but still, they’re officially over now. It’s kind of a head trip, to tell you the truth,” she reveals, admitting that she has ”total child lust when I see little kids.”
Couric is known for her bubbly personality and looks years younger than she is — so what is her secret? “I know it sounds corny, but I think the key to staying young is having joy inside you; being a caring, loving, generous person; and [having] a sense of humor.”
