Change one’s mind ? Children can be in the cards for Anna Marie Tendler following his separation from John Mulaney.

The artist, 36, told Harper’s Bazaar on Tuesday, January 11, that she’s going to freeze her eggs, saying, “There were things I hadn’t even thought of before because it was just a closed door. So now that it doesn’t feel like a closed door anymore, it’s something I ruminate on a lot.

The Connecticut native “always [held] partnership above having children” while married to the 39-year-old Saturday Night Live alum, whom she married in 2014.

“I feel lucky to be able to stand on the edge of all these new things, which I may eventually experience, and who knows how they will turn out?” the lampshade maker told the outlet. “And there’s definitely something exciting about that.”

We Weekly reported that Mulaney left with Olivia Munn in May 2021, the same month he announced his split from Tendler. The Newsroom alum, 41, gave birth to her first child with the comedian, son Malcolm, in November 2021.

“Meet Malcolm Hiệp Mulaney”, the John Mulaney and the Sack Luncheon Band the performer captioned her baby boy’s debut on Instagram the following month. “He’s got his whole life ahead of him. He hasn’t even tried seltzer water yet. I’m so in love with him and his whole relationship. Happy holidays.”

Munn called the child his “Golden Ox” in a post of his own in December 2021, adding, “Malcolm Hiệp Mulaney. Happy Holidays.”

Mulaney once said Weekly entertainment in 2019 that while the kids were “awesome,” he “loved” his job and his then-partner too much to accommodate his own.

“I love my wife and I spend so much time with her, and we have a really lucky life,” the actor shared at the time. “I can travel, do stand-up and our relationship is so wonderful. It’s just something I wouldn’t want to change.

He and Tendler finalized their divorce this month. The makeup artist said Harper’s Bazaar that the end of his relationship and what’s been ‘passed down’ since ‘has been totally shocking and…surreal’, adding: ‘In a way, I feel like, well, it can only climb from here, because I have reached the depth of where I could go.

Earlier this week, fans were convinced the New York University grad went public with her breakup playlist via Spotify, but she clarified the inspiration for the project on her Instagram Story. “These are just all my favorite songs, many of which have inspired my work this year,” Tendler wrote on Tuesday. “Hope you enjoy.”
