Kirsten Dunst Turning 30: Where Are My Husband & Kids Already?

Kirsten Dunst Turning 30: Where Are My Husband & Kids Already?

The actress is ready for kids, but she seems to think no men her age are.

Kirsten Dunst is turning 30 in April – the milestone birthday that often marks the transition from young adulthood into middle-aged adulthood (even if you're a famous actress). For Kirsten, the approaching number has caused her to begin thinking about starting a family, and subsequently, pondering who would make a good baby daddy.

However, the actress is finding it difficult to find a man her age who is also hoping to start a family in the next few years. According to People, in an interview for the January issue of Lucky, Kirsten says, "I thought when I reached 30 I'd have a lot more figured out." Exes Kirsten Dunst & Jake Gyllenhaal: Not Friends

Kirsten feels her life as an adult has been largely focused on finding someone to have children with. "Until you have a kid, you're just looking for your partner," she says. "And guys have a Peter Pan vibe. They're 35, and they act like they're 25. That's what scares me about being in my 30s: not finding someone to have kids with." 

While what Kirsten says can be true with some men (and ladies too), in some instances, there are plenty of men in their early thirties who are ready for children. What's more, having children at 30 is still considered early in today's world – women are fully capable of having children without the use of hormones and other unnatural procedures at 35, even 40. Kirsten Dunst Chasing Robert Pattinson

Still, Kirsten seems very eager to get a bun in her oven. "I can't wait to relive life in a little kid's way," she says. "I'm so ready for that lifestyle: Get a little place upstate and have them go to school up there."

Our advice to Kirsten? Don't rush a relationship to the altar just because you're eager to have children. That relationship won't benefit anyone—you, your husband, or your future kids.
