Hollywood actress Renee Zellweger is re-evaluating the possibility of starting her own family following a babysitting nightmare - comparing motherhood to "slavery".
The single 40-year-old star hasn't ruled out having her own kids but admits she was exhausted after tending to her needy niece and nephew for a single evening.
She explains, "My brother has two children now, so I've been playing aunt Renee. They're two and four. It's chaos. Moms out there, kudos to you. The cool thing about being an aunt is like, I can leave. No offence to my big brother Drew, but that is slavery. I dare you to take a shower. You can't do anything unless they let you. It's a dictatorship. They're little dictators in their crib."
But Zellweger's new appreciation for parenthood has made her question whether she's yet up for the task of being a full-time mum.
She adds, "Every now and then I'll step up and say, 'You know what, everybody sleep in, because you guys need some sleep and aunt Renee is going to take charge. I've got it, I've got it.' I so didn't have it."
