Ruth Wilson ‘thinks about having a baby every day’.

The actress, 40, said she has ‘lots of kids in my life’ who she adores, but can see both the ‘benefits and the disadvantages’ in raising her own children. 

The Affair star is currently taking a break with her American writer boyfriend – who she has previously refused to name – after a busy few years career-wise working on the His Dark Materials series, movie shoots and theatre performances.

When asked in an interview with the new issue of Radio Times magazine whether she wants a baby, Ruth responded: ‘I think about it every day. I can see the benefits and the disadvantages every day.

‘I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I have lots of kids in my life and I love kids. It’s just that… it changes your life entirely. So yes, I think about it a lot.’

The actress is the youngest of four children; her three older brothers all have their own kids and her parents – investment banker father Nigel and probation officer mother Mary – have been married for well over 40 years.

As a result, the screen star has previously said she has ‘no example by which to live my life’ and finds the baby question ‘a really annoying thing to deal with’.

Ruth said in an interview with ES magazine in 2016: ‘My mum had four kids at my age and all my brothers have replicated my parents’ marriage – they’ve got kids and are settled.

‘I have no example by which to live my life, really. I feel I am a bit on my own and have to form it as I go. My parents’ lives were in one place, static and maybe routine and my life isn’t.

‘Sometimes I think, “God, I’d really love some kids”, and other times it’s like, “No way”. For a woman my age, it’s a constant debate – and again, a really annoying thing to deal with, because it defines relationships and how you approach them. 

‘Life will take its paths and you have to believe things will happen for a reason. I am quite laissez-faire about it, and I am happy as I am at the moment.’ 

Speaking in an interview with Radio Times magazine in 2018, Ruth said if she wanted to have a child later in life then she would be prepared to ‘adopt or there are other ways’.

She explained: ‘Every day I feel a different way about it. What’s interesting about women is that we’re conscious time is running out and that some part of us is in a process of dying from the age of puberty. 

‘I feel like what happens, happens. We have more ways available to us to have kids later on. If I really want a child, I can adopt or there are other ways. 

‘At the same time, if I don’t have a child, that decision is not judged as much as it used to be. Times are changing.’

The Golden Globe-winning actress previously claimed some women’s focus on the institution of marriage is ‘depressing’.

Speaking to the Sunday Times Magazine in February, she said: ‘I personally have no interest in walking down a church in a white dress.

‘[There are women] with exactly the same ring on their finger, talking about their bachelorettes. You think, that’s all they’re living for. It feels so depressing.

‘Honestly it’s never been something that I’ve wildly wanted or even really thought about.

‘How long does love last? Can it really last a lifetime? People expect forever and when it doesn’t work out they’re somehow surprised.’
