Back in 2012, Cameron shared that she wasn't sure whether she would have children. Speaking to Harper's Bazaar, the blonde beauty said: "If one day I am blessed with the experience of having a child, I would be overjoyed, but I am not sitting here feeling empty because I haven't yet, or that I may not." That same year, she also opened up about babies to Redbook, saying: "I thought I was going to be married and have two children by the time I was 21. But then my career was starting to take off and there were still so many things I wanted to do... After that I never put another timeline on anything in my life."
