“We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child … that decision is ours and ours alone,” she wrote in a letter published by The Huffington Post in July 2016. “We get to determine our own ‘happily ever after’ for ourselves.”
While Jennifer might not be a mom to her own children, she does have some parental responsibilities as she’s the godmother of Courteney’s daughter, Coco, per People.
