Southern Charm belle, Cameran Eubanks, has made it perfectly clear that she is perfectly fine with having just one kid.
Eubanks sat down with PEOPLE recently and explained why she’s only having one child — and shut down the notion that it’s “selfish” to not give her daughter Palmer a sibling. When her husband got down on his knee, she told him: "Hold up. Just so you know, if kids are a non-negotiable for you, you can’t marry me because I might not give them to you.”
"The last thing I want you to do is resent me or us end up divorced because you want a child and I don’t,” she told her husband. “He said, ‘Cameran, if it happens, it happens, but if not, I love you and I want to marry you.’"
The couple went on to welcome daughter Palmer Corrine in November 2017, three and a half years after getting married.
Eubanks’ second thoughts about starting a family came from the idea that she might be running out of time if she wants to do it biologically. She added that she then thought about the unconditional love which comes with the child and about the fact that while she would never regret having a child, she might regret not having one.
Also, the Bravo star is firm about Palmer being an only child, sharing that “a lot of it is me having the self-awareness to know that one is all I can handle with my personality, and it’s okay to admit that, and it’s okay to admit to yourself and know what you can handle and know what your limits are.”
“The big thing [I hear] is, ‘Well, you need to give her a sibling. That’s so selfish,’ ” Eubanks said in her exclusive interview with PEOPLE. “And I say, ‘I can either give her a sibling or I can give her a sane mother.’ And I think giving her a happy, healthy, mentally sane mother is way more important than a brother or sister that she’s probably gonna fight with anyway.”
Eubanks acknowledges that parenting is not always easy but it’s definitely worth the “love you cannot describe” when a child enters your life. Still, she admits being envious of child-free people from time to time, but the star remains focused on being the best mom she can be to Palmer.
