Casey Anthony is reportedly open to having more kids and 'doesn't care what anyone else thinks'

  • Casey Anthony is open to having more children, according to People.
  • In a ruling that caused national outrage in 2011, Anthony was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter.
  • “If she wants to have another kid, she’ll have another kid. She doesn’t care what you or I or anyone else thinks,” a source told People.

Casey Anthony – who was acquitted in 2011 of charges that she murdered her two-year-old daughter in a ruling that caused national outrage – is reportedly open to having more children.

“She’s very good at living her life and to hell with what other people think,” a source close to Anthony told People. “If she wants to have another kid, she’ll have another kid. She doesn’t care what you or I or anyone else thinks.”

Anthony was accused of murdering her daughter, Caylee, in 2008, after investigators found Caylee’s corpse bound by duct tape and covered by bugs and vegetation near her parents’ home.

The case became a national tabloid sensation and Anthony was ultimately found not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child by a Florida jury in 2011. She was found guilty and served time for several misdemeanour counts of lying to police officers, though, and was released in July 2011.

Anthony maintained a mostly private life in the years that followed and is currently working as a researcher for the private investigator she hired during her case and living in Florida, according to People. In a 2017 interview with the Associated Press, she suggested she was unlikely to have more children.

“If I am blessed enough to have another child – if I’d be dumb enough to bring another kid into this world knowing that there’d be a potential that some jacka–, their little snot-nose kid would then say something mean to my kid – I don’t think I could live with that,” she said.

But now she’s changed her tune.

“For a long time she was like, ‘no way,'” the source told People. “But time has changed that and she’s now open to it in a way she hasn’t been before.”
