Candace Bushnell, 60, has admitted that she regrets choosing a career over having children as she is now ‘truly alone’

Her best-selling book and the racy TV series it inspired taught a generation of women that they could ‘have it all’.

But Sex and the City creator Candace Bushnell, 60, has admitted that she regrets choosing a career over having children as she is now ‘truly alone’.

The TV series starred Sarah Jessica Parker as a writer in New York who famously chooses her independence over motherhood.

Miss Bushnell, pictured, divorced her husband – ballet dancer Charles Askegard – in 2012 and said it made her realise the importance of starting a family.

The former sex columnist, who is worth around £18million, told the Sunday Times: ‘When I was in my thirties and forties, I didn’t think about it.

‘Then when I got divorced and I was in my fifties, I started to see the impact of not having children and of truly being alone. I do see that people with children have an anchor in a way that people who have no kids don’t.’
