Barbara Walters, a pioneer in broadcast journalism, said one regret she has when it comes to her personal life is not spending more time with her daughter, Jackie.
“I was so busy with a career. It’s the age-old problem,” Walters, 84, said in an interview that will air on the upcoming ABC News special, “Barbara Walters: Her Story.” “And, you know, on your deathbed, are you going to say, ‘I wish I spent more time in the office?’ No. You’ll say, ‘I wish I spent more time with my family,’ and I do feel that way. I wish I had spent more time with my Jackie.”
In an interview with her longtime business partner, Bill Geddie, Walters spoke candidly about how her award-winning career affected relationships, and how, despite suffering miscarriages, she still desperately wanted a child.
The two-hour ABC News special, “Barbara Walters: Her Story”
, highlighting her life and career will air Friday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
