Well that's the thing, its a biological imperative to want to reproduce. The whole point of life is to further the species, even if we aren't consciously thinking about it that way its still programmed into us. That doesn't mean that you can't overcome that, and some people will obviously never feel the need to have children and that's fine. But you wouldn't ask someone why they want kids because its the default state of our biology, the biology of all species. To survive and reproduce. But not wanting kids is off the beaten path, if you will, so its definitely something someone would ask about.

I should disclaimer though that I don't think that 'biological biological' argument is valid in all cases because a lot of the time our 'biological norm' is actually just a cultural norm. Like people using it as an argument against homosexuality. Which even if it isn't the natural state (and who really knows what the natural sexuality state is. Nobody.) it doesn't make it wrong (same goes for not wanting kids, nothing wrong with that).

I'm just saying you wouldn't ask someone why they want kids cause its the whole primal, ancient, way deep down there in our old brain, point of being alive. Our brains have obviously developed beyond the just 'eat, sleep, screw' point in its evolution but that doesn't mean that part isn't still in there.
