TV Presenter June Sarpong Says Women Can’t Have Career and Children

In an exclusive interview with today’s You magazine, the star of ITV’s Loose Women says: ‘I’m part of a generation that totally put work over relationships.

She sprang to fame as a youth TV presenter on MTV and Channel 4. But now, at 40 and wondering whether she’ll ever have children, June Sarpong says the notion women can have both family and career is a ‘lie’.

In an exclusive interview with today’s You magazine, the star of ITV’s Loose Women says: ‘I’m part of a generation that totally put work over relationships.

‘I don’t think I regret that – I’ve enjoyed it – but the lie that was sold to us was that you can have it all.’

‘And I’ve realised there’s always compromise.’

On her prospects of becoming a mum, June says: ‘I’m 40, so who knows? But I won’t feel a sense of dread if I don’t have children. I want to be a mother but it doesn’t have to be biological.’

‘My sister has two teenage daughters I am close to. I have a friend who enjoys being a stepmum. I’m from an African tradition that says it takes a village to raise a child. I’m quite philosophical. I’m open to whatever my life is supposed to be.’

If her destiny is to be a mother by helping disadvantaged children when she’s older, she’s cool, she says.
