LaLa Anthony may have reunited with husband Carmelo after a period of estrangement, but that doesn’t mean they’re looking to grow their family any bigger than it already is, or at least she’s not.

The 39-year-old told Us Weekly while attending the American Apparel & Footwear Association’s American Image Awards recently that “I think I’m done.” So for people who may have been asking or wondering about the possibility of her trying to have more kids, she seems set on that not happening.

“My son has fulfilled me in every single possible way,” she said, “so I think I’m done, yes.”

LaLa has a lot on her plate already as a wife, mother of one and actress, producer and businesswoman, so it makes sense that she’d want to forgo having anymore children. But to be clear, she loves being a mom. Kiyan, now 12, is not just a child to her, he’s also her buddy and sometimes, even her fashion consultant.

“I actually put a dress on before this one and he was like, ‘Ma, don’t wear that,’” she added at the event. “I was like, ‘What?’ He was like, ‘That’s not a good dress.’”
Her public stance on having more kids comes after there was speculation that LaLa was pregnant in December following her confirmed reconciliation with Carmelo. She turned out not to be. It also comes with longstanding rumors that Carmelo does have another child, a daughter named Genesis, with a woman he cheated with. That decision and the results of it were allegedly the reason behind the couple separating in 2017.
In the past, the star seemed open to possibly having another child after Kiyan expressed interest in wanting a little brother or sister.

“I do start feeling bad because [my son, Kiyan, 7, will] ask about a baby [sibling] and I feel a little selfish,” she said in 2014. “If I did have another child, the reason would be that I wouldn’t want my son to be alone in the world as an only child. But we’ll see.”
