What ever happened to the old saying, “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage?” With the onslaught of celebrity pregnancy announcements lately, I couldn’t help but notice just how many of them are not married. Do celebrities know how to use birth control? Here’s the rundown:
Natalie Portman: not married, engagement announcement came out the same day as pregnancy.
Marian Cottilard: not married.
Kate Hudson: not married.
Victoria Beckham: Whoo-hoo, she’s married!
Devon Aoki: not married, engagement announcement came out the same day as pregnancy.
Tia Mowry: Yay! She’s married.
Jane Krakowski: nope, not married… oh, but she’s engaged though.
Selma Blair: again, not married.
Jewel: married. so excited for her and hubby , Ty.
Kim Zolciak: after experiencing being a lesbian, she is now expecting with boyfriend, Kroy Bierman.
We’ll, add a guy in here… Owen Wilson: not married. Who even knew he had a girlfriend?
So there you have it, 3 out of 11 are married. Granted, I firmly believe that babies are a blessing, but come on folks. What is this teaching the younger generation? With the popularity of the MTV hit, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, teenagers are seeing getting pregnant as the trendy thing to do. The “subjects” of that show are on covers of magazines and raking in the cash. In her latest court appearance, Teen Mom star, Amber Portwood admitted she made $280,000 last year… all from being on that show!
Celebrities need to realize they are role models to their younger fans and start acting a little more responsible… starting with birth control.
