British funnyman Ricky Gervais has vowed never to have children - because he is too selfish to be a father.
The Office comedian and his long term partner Jane Fallon have both decided against ever starting a family and Gervais admits they made a promise to each other years ago never to have babies.
He says, "We never wanted to be parents, with all that entails - the loss of freedom, the total dependency. I didn't have a work ethic for such a long time, imagine if I had a child just like me?
"I'm also the sort of person who has to check three times that I've shut the door, so I'd probably stare at a kid all day just to check it was breathing."
