In an interview with Marie Claire UK, back in 2018, Moss said, "I do want to be a mother. I like the idea of passing on what my mother passed on to me. It’s not for everybody, and I didn’t know if it was going to be for me, but lately, I think it is. I have no idea how I want to do it though, or what the plan is." In a separate interview with You Magazine in 2022, she revisited the topic, saying, "I definitely want to have kids because I’ve been very inspired by the kind of mother my mom is...She did a beautiful thing with me."
