Despite this, the couple got married a few months later. Their love story was full of exciting moments but, unfortunately, Allen passed away in 1981 of stomach cancer. The fact that the family had no children concerned the public the most, however, Betty had prepared the best answer for this.

Never being a mother.

Mrs. White has no regrets about not having children. She understands and totally admits that she has chosen a career instead of a private life; that is why there is no need to cry about the lost possibilities.


I didn't choose to have children because I'm focused on my career. And I just don't think as compulsive as I am, that I could manage both.

Betty has always been strong in her intentions. After her husband’s death, she didn’t even think about marrying anyone else:

All of the sudden you see one or the other reach over and something like that. Those are the things I miss. It's just that level of personal affection, I'm talking about just the personal contact, that's an empty feeling.

Animals' patron

Even though Betty doesn’t have any children, she has someone to care about.


Mrs. White looks after the wild world and helps various animal charity organizations. As long as she remembers herself, she has been helping one of the oldest animal saving program - The Seeing Eye’s.

She makes various announcements for the organization as well as guides the public radio service. Betty White is one of the greatest comedian actresses in Hollywood, and like every other person, she has a unique story of her life that is too amazing not to share.
