Ashley Tisdale married musician Christopher French in 2014, but the 34-year-old High School Musical star is not yet ready to have kids. In a July 2019 interview with People, she said it’s ”not the right time” for her to become a mother just yet.

The former Disney star said: ”Whether you’re traveling or you have work or education or you’re married and not ready to have a kid yet, there are options out there. For me, it’s like, it’s okay to not want to start a family right away. People are always asking me about that, but it’s just not the right time. And I have options out there.”

Tisdale has partnered with Allergan, an Irish-domiciled pharmaceutical company known for the Lo Loestrin Fe birth control pill, to join the “Women Who Know” campaign. It encourages women to take active roles in their reproductive health, including researching birth control options.

“We are trying to inspire women to take an active role in decisions about their reproductive health and contraceptive options,” says Tisdale, who will turn 35 on July 2, 2020.

“For me, it’s just about starting the discussion, having those conversations with your doctor and health care provider and knowing that there are options out there.”

In a May 2015 interview with E! News, Tisdale made clear that she and her husband are happy to wait.

“I have a niece who’s 5. We actually have 3 nieces on his side, and my niece, so we have a lot of kids around us! We’re not having kids anytime soon, we’re really focused on our work, and just being with each other.”

At the time, she had had been married to her husband Christopher French for just one year. Tisdale said, “The only difference I feel, is I changed my name personally, like things get changed like credit cards, but other than that it feels great. There’s nothing different, it’s always been amazing, and it’s always been very natural. I’ve heard about the ‘Newlywed time,’ but we’re having a blast!”
