Cara Delevingne has revealed that she is “manifesting” having a child, but says that she isn’t ready just yet. That doesn’t mean that Delevingne, 29, isn’t preparing for the day. The model told Harper’s Bazaar UK that she is mentally preparing for motherhood by buying clothes for her non-existent child.
Her weakness is baby shoes — she told the publication, “Baby shoes really get me – they break my heart. I went shopping the other day and I bought these tiny Air Jordans, which are purple and they have a lion on them. I’m manifesting…”
“I want to have babies. But not yet,” the Carnival Row star said. Delevingne, who came out as pansexual in 2017 (meaning she can be attracted to someone regardless of their gender), also spoke about the lack of LGBTQ+ role models she had growing up and how it inspires her to be more open as an adult. She said, “I do think I would have hated myself less, I would have not been so ashamed, if I’d had someone.”
Delevingne added, “The one thing I’m happy about growing up queer and fighting it and hiding it is it gives me so much fire and drive to try to make people’s lives easier in some way by talking about it.”
Growing up as a queer child, Delevingne said it was isolating and hard to navigate at times, but her older sisters Chloe and Poppy did their best to be there for her. She said she saw her sisters as the “epitome of the woman I wanted to be. I soon realized that I couldn’t be the same – all of us have different paths – but they showed me the most fundamental things that I had to learn in life.”
