It’s being called the “Hollywood Baby Boom,” but in my opinion it’s the “Hollywood Baby Explosion!” Is there something in the Cristal because it seems like pregnancy has gone viral in Hollywood?
Today a celebrity baby bump is all the rage and announcing your preggers when you’re a celebrity is a lot bigger (pardon the pun) than announcing your latest movie project.
2011 has barely begun and People Magazine has already featured 23 celebrities who are expecting babies and 2010 wasn’t lacking in the baby mill either! It kind of makes you wonder, is having a baby a more chic accessory than a Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Handbag? I know that’s terrible, a baby is NOT an accessory, but you can’t deny this growing trend in Hollywood.
At first the road to Hollywood Parenthood seemed to be all about adopting babies from out of the country, but that is so Angelina Jolie 2007! Now it really doesn’t matter how you have a baby in Hollywood: adoption, surrogate, or just the good ole’ fashion way of getting “knocked up.” Anyone else out there not like this term, but absolutely loves that movie?
Okay, I digress, like I was saying it doesn’t matter how you have a baby in Hollywood, all that matters is the sweet bundle of joy that comes in the end, and that you’ll get to pose with he or she on the cover of some celebrity magazine once they have finally arrived. So anyhow, with all this said, it really is quite amazing how many celebrities are actually coming up pregnant today in Hollywood.
Now I was joking earlier about Hollywood babies being a chic accessory, however, in harsh reality there are people who believe that this is exactly why celebrities are having babies. Those people are skeptical to why such a large number of celebrities are turning up pregnant all at once. Is it really just the fashionable thing to do in Hollywood and a great way to get some publicity? Or is it just a mere coincidence?
I have a difficult time believing a celebrity would have a baby just to get some publicity, especially when so many of them are A-List celebrities and they don’t even need the publicity. However, isn’t that part of the reason why Joan Crawford adopted her children in ‘Mommie Dearest?’…And perhaps I am naive to say that an A-List celebrity does not need the publicity, when really publicity is what keeps their careers thriving. Regardless though, I still don’t think this is why so many celebs are having babies right now.
So here is my theory on why I think so many celebrities are getting pregnant in Hollywood. I think it’s because a lot of celebrities are having unprotected sex, that’s why. Duh! Were you expecting something deeper or more complicated?
We all know that some of these Hollywood pregnancies were planned, while others were not. So perhaps in some of the cases of those that were not planned, there was something in the Cristal that contributed to them getting pregnant after all…
It’s called alcohol.
