Andy Roddick, Brooklyn Decker Say Babies Can Wait
Newlyweds Andy and Brooklyn aren't in any hurry to start a family.

Like most newly (or even vaguely recently) married couples, tennis player Andy Roddick and swimsuit model–turned–actress Brooklyn Decker have to deal with people asking when they're going to pop out some insanely good-looking spawn. But they don't hear it just from their moms, grandmothers, and well-meaning church acquaintances. No, Andy and Brooklyn get the "When are you having a baaaayyyybbeeeeeeee?" wail from, you know, the whole world. (Mostly the tabloids. But probably also Roger Federer, Kim Clijsters, and Jennifer Aniston, the last always said with extreme malice.) So they've fired back. Brooklyn told E!'s Marc Malkin at the Spike Guys Choice Awards, where she was, of course, the choice, "We're obviously waiting. We're young and we're focused on our careers and being together right now."

And why shouldn't they wait? Let's not forget that they've only been married a year, and that Brooklyn is all of 23, so she has years and years of prime babymaking ahead of her. And Andy, who'll be 28 in August, is still battling away on the tennis circuit, trying to regain the number-one ranking he achieved in 2003, the year he won his only Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open. Folks are busy. And babies are time-consuming, we hear. Being A Dad Makes Me A Better Husband
