Forget taking care of other people's kids – "Supernanny" Jo Frost just wants some to call her own. And that's exactly why the British disciplinarian is ending her popular ABC series after six seasons.
"I have decided to hang up my cape," 39-year-old Frost tells the New York Post. "It was a very conscious decision, through much reflection. But I need to create more balance in my life."
That includes buying a home, finding love and having children.
"Proper balance will allow me to date and have a relationship and look at my own future of having a family," says the single Frost, who, as TV's "Supernanny," spends 46 weeks out of the year on the road. "I am definitely excited about dating and being in a committed relationship. That is all exciting stuff for me around the corner."
But don't expect Frost to go away for good. The star, who has written three best-selling books and worked with 155 families over the course of the hit show, has several new projects in development and says there has been "much interest" in bringing her UK series, "Extreme Parental Guidance," to America.
"I don't think you will be seeing less of me," she tells the Post. "I just think it will be a different way that you see me."
