However, she has only one child, but she never bonded with him. Moreover, she tried to get rid of him before he was even born.

The scandalous confessions of the sex symbol

According to Independent, in one of her autobiographies, Bardot talked about her only child, son Nicolas, from her second marriage to Jacque Charrier, her co-star in Babette Goes to War. She didn’t want a child, but Charrier's parents convinced her to have it.

She describes her feelings after finding out that she is expecting, saying:

I looked at my flat, slender belly in the mirror like a dear friend upon whom I was about to close a coffin lid.

The birth was very difficult. She couldn’t get to the hospital on time because of numerous paparazzi outside her house, so she had to give birth at home. Bardot never bonded with Nicolas, so his father took custody of him.

In one of her press conferences, Brigitte, who is an animal activist, said that she would have "preferred to give birth to a little dog". All of those hurtful words made Charrier and his son sue the actress, and she was ordered to pay a handsome sum for her spiky remarks.

How to deal with an unwanted pregnancy

An unwanted pregnancy can turn into a positive experience if you tackle it from the right perspective. Brigitte didn’t want to see anything good that could come from having a child, but if you try to re-evaluate your vision of life and imagine having a baby in it, you might feel better. Think about all the nice things you could do, like walking with your child in a park, as this might trigger genuine feelings.
