Oprah Winfrey thinks she wouldn't make a good mom

By Susana Victoria Perez, Buzz60

There is nothing Oprah can't do. Talk show host, actress, producer, philanthropist, the list goes on and on. But there is one thing the mogul says she wouldn't be good at and that's motherhood.

The 63-year-old revealed in an interview for the April issue preview of Good Housekeeping U.K. that she wouldn't have been a good mom for babies.

That seems hard to believe since she's basically a sweet, motherly figure to the whole country.

Oprah said: "I don't have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that's a quick stage!"

It's safe to say her maternal instincts are still very strong though, since she established the Leadership Academy boarding school in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The academy has 172 girls enrolled with Oprah as a pretty great role model for them!
