Diana Mills has only been with one person for a long time: Richard Holland. He did many things, like write, produce, play rock guitar, and more.
They stayed together for a few years before they broke up. They were single with kids, but Mills was happy with her life and who she was.
In 1983, after dating Holland for five years, Mills, who was then 37 years old, talked about how she felt about her relationship status as a happy single woman. What did the lady say?
“I don’t think being married makes me safer than not being married.”
They lived in different places, which showed how serious their relationship was while also being noncommittal. Mills did say that there was a time when they were pretty much living together.
There’s baby fever in Donna Mills
When Mills and Holland broke up, the actress focused on her work instead of dating. Even though she said she wasn’t against having kids, her desire to move up in her career made it hard. In her own words, she stated:
“At one point, I realized there was something missing—it was a child.”
Mills said that when she was in her fifties and had finished many of her projects, she realized how bad her baby fever was getting. The actor talked about how she felt jealous of mothers when they were loving with their kids.
Donna Mills adopts a child and stops working for 18 years.
Even though people were worried about her age at the time, Mills adopted a four-day-old girl and named her Chloe. In her memory:
A lot of people told me, ‘You’re going to be so old to have a little child running around,'” she said. I never had that feeling. The other moms were probably in their 20s, but I never felt older than them.
When she talked about how people felt about her adopting a child of color, she said that no one in her life had said anything. But the loving mother did join a group that helped her deal with problems, like how to take care of Chloe’s hair.
For Mills, having a child so late in life is not only okay, it’s even encouraged.
Because Mills made so much money in her successful career, she chose to focus on being a mom full-time after Chloe was born. She actually quit her job almost twenty years ago, when she was at the top of her game, to spend more time with Chloe. As the actress remembered:
“Being a mom was what I wanted to do, so I stopped doing everything else for 18 years.”
She remembered working in the movie business when she first became a mother, but when her daughter started school, she put being a parent first.
For Mills, having a child so late in life is not only okay, it’s even encouraged. She said that right now is a great time for people who want to start building a successful job.
The caring mother said that she has kept a close relationship with her daughter by spending time with her regularly and calling her often.
Mills continues to break the rules about getting older because she refuses to get cosmetic surgery.
Donna Mills defies aging norms once more when she comes back to Hollywood.
Mills doesn’t care about her age, even though she is 82 years old and her daughter is 28 years old. “Dawn,” an upcoming movie, will bring her back to Hollywood. She recently shared a shot from the movie on Instagram, where her hair is shorter and gray. What she wrote in the description was:
As the saying goes, blondes have more fun…I really like this white color, what do you think?”
This picture perfectly shows a woman who isn’t afraid of getting older and is enjoying it. Her comment suggests that she has a positive outlook on life.
People in the comments section told Mills how beautiful her picture was. One commenter said the star looks good with any hair color, and two others said she is “beautiful no matter what.” One friend wrote:
“Beautiful eyes look even better than usual!”
Another Instagram user, _maid_to_the_stars, said Mills looked like a “angel” and was “stunningly beautiful.” Other users said Mills had not aged a day. A little more than 8000 people have liked the post so far.
Mills keeps going against the rules of aging because she refuses to get plastic surgery or cosmetic improvements.
In response to this, she said that someone had asked her why she hadn’t thought about getting plastic surgery. The actor replied with confidence, “No, because I’m not going to look like a duck.” There are lines I’d rather have than a duck bill.
An actor from “Big Bang” called Mayim Bialik recently broke social norms about age by showing off her gray hair online.
