My sex life isn't exactly fireworks and handcuffs and a regular reenactment of the Kama Sutra. In fact, when my husband and I first decided to throw away the birth control pills and condoms and try for a baby, I worried: I wanted to be a mom so damn bad, but the frequency with which we had sex was definitely lacking, and I often experienced pain during sex. Amazingly, babymaking sex has totally improved my sex life.
My husband and I once visited all 33 New Jersey wineries registered through the NJ Wine Growers' Association. We did it in three, frenetic months. We spent every single weekend together over the course of those three months, immersed in this shared interest of ours, and it revitalized our marriage. Nowadays, we still enjoy the occasional tasting and, most weeks, we pour each other some wine and cook together. It's a way to keep connected, even though we're still hopeless workaholics. This will all end once I get pregnant.
What is up with Kelsey Grammer pulling a Mel Gibson and getting his side piece pregnant before his divorce papers are signed? The 55-year-old actor, who just split up with his wife of 13 years, former Playboy model, Camille Donatacci, recently started dating a 29-year-old British stewardess named Kayte Walsh. And now the New York Post is reporting that Grammer has knocked up her up.
Despite the fact that their mothers are livid, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have gotten engaged fast and have announced that they want to get married even more quickly, supposedly sometime in the next six weeks, leaving many to wonder what their rush is. Well, according to LimeLife.com, 19-year-old Bristol may be pregnant again, despite her stance that she and Levi, 20, are not current sexually active. It's hard to believe that being teenage parents to one baby, 2-year-old Tripp, already wouldn't deter the couple from unprotected sex, but sources point to Bristol's weight gain as an explanation for the shotgun wedding. There's also the fact that selling baby photos to a tabloid is a good way to make money. (Supposedly, Us Magazine paid a "huge but undisclosed" amount of money for the engagement story.)
A few months back, we reported that 42-year-old Céline Dion was pregnant with twins after undergoing numerous attempts at in vitro. And now, thanks to Star Magazine, we now know that the singer will be having twin boys, reports Celebitchy.com. The Canadian singer and her 68-year-old husband/manager René Angelil already have a 9-year-old son together, René-Charles, who we're guessing will be doing a lot of babysitting for and cleaning up after his little baby brothers since Céline reportedly does not believe in nannies or maids.
Camila Alves already has two kids with man-boy partner Matthew McConaughey, but after being spotted covering up her belly and wearing loose clothes for the past few weeks, is the mother of Levi, 2, and Vida, 6 months, already pregnant again for a third time? If so, it looks like the Alves-McConaughey family is trying to give Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's brood a run for their money, in terms of size. (Maybe, at some point, the two families could even play a soccer game against each other - wouldn't Papa Pitt love that!)
I try to divorce Michael at least once a month. I blame this on the PMDD, though I've also been diagnosed with chronic depression and anxiety and, once, a psychopharmacologist told me I had obvious bipolar tendencies. After the PMDD diagnosis, I realized that switching to Yaz was sufficient for managing my wild mood swings. Then, I decided to have a baby.
Did anyone really believe that Kate Middleton was actually pregnant? Although Star Magazine recently reported that the royal family was in a "frantic scramble to keep [the] scandal secret," we didn't believe for one moment that "Waity Katie" would risk throwing away the chance at becoming Princess Diana 2.0 and all that entails by becoming pregnant out of wedlock. (Not to mention the fact that illegitimate children are rarely ever granted royal titles.) According to Star, "William was up at his military base in North Wales when Kate called him. She was sobbing so hard, she could hardly get the words out. She told him that despite their precautions, she is pregnant."
Despite their on and off, 3 year relationship, Jessica Biel is reportedly pressuring Justin Timberlake for a baby. Blame it on her ticking biological clock, but Jessica, 28, "is desperate to settle down and have kids," said an insider to ShowbizSpy.com. "And ideally she’d like it to be with Justin." Jessica isn't afraid to go the Brangelina route either and just get pregnant, if Justin is afraid to put a ring on it.
Is Khloe Khloe Kardashian following in her sister Kourtney’s footsteps and becoming a mom? After surprising everyone last fall by hastily marrying LA Lakers star Lamar Odom, whom she only had dated for a month, Khloe is, now, reportedly pregnant! Although a family friend close to the Kardashians is denying the news, according to RadarOnline, Khloe is 2 months pregnant and supposedly made the decision to become a mother after witnessing her nephew’s birth back in December.
It seems that Céline Dion's heart will not only go on and on, but it has room enough for two more kids. The Canadian singer and her husband/manager René Angelil confirmed to People Magazine that Céline, 42, is 14 weeks pregnant with twins after undergoing in-vitro.
We've all heard how sex lives can suffer once you have kids. First, because of the damage that occurs to a woman's nether regions during childbirth. Then, because of the tenderness of a woman's vaginal lining—in addition to hormonal fluctuations—in the months after childbirth. And then? Well, there's the lack of time, and the exhaustion that comes from being a parent (and a spouse, and a fully functioning individual). There's the magnification of the madonna/whore complex that can occur after you pop one out. There's the reshuffling of your affections, and the sometimes attendant resentments that can result from this. This doesn't worry me. After all, our sex life already sucks.
According to a recent Popular Science article, scientists speculate that sex for reproduction may soon go out of style. Don't get us wrong, sex itself will stick around, but thanks to advancements in embryology, our descendants who are actively trying to get pregnant may ditch traditional babymaking in favor of invitro fertilization.
We’d like to send a congratulatory shout-out to Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso this morning. The couple, who will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary this December, are expecting their their third child, reported People Magazine.
We’ve never been able to tell Amy Adams and Isla Fisher apart. They’re both red-heads, they’re both funny in that quirky girl-next-door kind of way, and now, they’re both pregnant at the same time too. Not since Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley appeared in Star Wars together, has it been so confusing trying to tell two, unrelated actresses apart. (Even People Magazine recently posted a pic of a pregnant Isla, which might actually be a pregnant Amy, according to commenters.)
