      I was thinking about this subject recently and off-hand I can think of:
      -Rachael Ray
      -Dolly Parton
      -Oprah Winfrey
      -Eileen Fulton (long-time soap actress)

      I found an article from Feb 2001 entitled “Famous People Without Children” that had some interesting names on the list. This article is from 8 years ago, so by now some of these people do have kids. I didn’t edit the list at all so there might be people on here who are still under age 40, and there are men listed too:
