Canadian actor, Daniel Levy sent out an inclusive tweet on the occasion of Mother's Day. While Levy took to social media, like many celebrities, to appreciate his mother on the day he also took to Twitter to give a shout-out to women who don't have children. In the tweet, Levy expressed how there was simply nothing wrong if a person has chosen to have a life without kids. 

The debate of whether one should have kids because they want to or simply because they should has been going on for a long time. Society deems it an individual's responsibility to procreate and teach their children to carry on, so they can do the same someday. However, there are many people who are unmarried or happily married who simply choose not to have children and Dan Levy is here to tell you that, you do you!

Dan's own character David on Schitt's Creek had an inspiring love story with his partner on the show, Patrick, played by Noah Reid. In the show, Patrick and David also discuss having children as the latter simply doesn't want to have them, and he never has, as mentioned many times on the show. Eventually the two settled in their lives, however, the question of whether David changed his mind about having children, remained unclear. Take a look at Dan Levy's tweet below.
