“I didn’t know until I was 40 years old that the sun and the moon were not the same thing," Chelsea, 47, admitted. “My older sister Simone looked up at the sky and she said, ‘Chelsea, Chelsea, look up. It’s not often you get to see the sun and the moon at the same time.'"
Chelsea responded, “But they’re always together," before embarrassingly elaborating that she "just assumed when the sun went down, it popped back up as the moon."
In other news, Chelsea also discussed serious topics, like having children, during an appearance on Today to promote her new Netflix special, Revolution.
"It’s important to know when you don’t have the skills to raise a baby. You know, instead of shaming people we should say, 'Oh good, good for you for knowing that you shouldn’t have a baby!'"
“As a woman, I’m so sick — and have been so sick — of being asked that question repeatedly when I’ve made my views so clear to people."
Last year on her iHeartRadio podcast, Dear Chelsea, she explained how things would play out "if" she were to become a parent. "If I had my own, I would be all about them,” she said.
“I look at it like this — because I don’t have my own children, I’m able to send strangers to college. I’m able to support kids that I’ll never meet, in countries that I’ll never even visit. But I’m able to give so much because I don’t have my own family and to me, that is my purpose. I would be a shitty mother. I would be selfish. I would want everything to be great for my kid and forget about all the other kids in the world.”
I need to bring Chelsea to my next family gathering because the "when are you having kids" questions are absolutely exhausting.
