Winfrey herself says about all this: “I never had children and never thought to have. Now I have 152 daughters, I expect that there will be 75 more next year. It is like a kind of pregnancy. I told their grandmothers, mothers, members of their families (some girls lost their families): “Your daughters are now my daughters, and I promise you to take care of them”.
Future plans for Oprah to live near her girls when she retires. Winfrey plans to live in her university campus.
