Elisabeth Moss has said that she wants children.

Elisabeth has been honest about her desire to become a mother. “I do want to be a mother," she said in a 2018 interview with Marie Claire U.K. "I like the idea of passing on what my mother passed on to me. It’s not for everybody, and I didn’t know if it was going to be for me, but lately, I think it is. I have no idea how I want to do it though or what the plan is.”

Although she sounded pretty sure she wanted to become a mother at the time, Elisabeth said that her focus on her career has made dating difficult. “It’s actually a problem. But I’m very focused on my work," she said. "It’s difficult to find the time to give yourself to somebody."

She also said that, if she met the right person, she'd be open to getting married again. “I have nothing against getting married again, but what I value even more now is the relationship itself,” she explained.

“It’s been eight years," Elisabeth said of her prior marriage to Fred Armisen. "I’m older, and hopefully wiser. I’m a romantic, so I love weddings, but I also don’t think you need [a wedding] to have a long-lasting, healthy relationship. Some of the relationships I know that have lasted the longest are the ones that didn’t [get married].”
