And now rumors are circulating that she may indeed have taken their advice.
Jennifer Aniston, America’s sweetheart. Dating an all-American funny guy. Not married, no public announcement of being pregnant, not showing gray roots or rubbing her tummy in public. Well, maybe rubbing her taut tummy with sun tan lotion while stretched out on a lawn chair pool-side. But just in the recent week: photos showing a possible pregnancy pooch in sight. Unfortunately for Aniston, being 37 years old and former wife to new dad Brad, she is, like many Hollywood stars over the age of 25, on the official baby watch.
Welcome to Mommy-wood!
Brangelina’s baby is just the latest circus act in the show business baby boom. Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt (say that ten times fast) must contend with other news-making babies like Gwynnie’s Apple and Moses, Brooke’s Grier, Ben and Jen’s Violet, Britney’s Sean and soon-to-be Baby Girl, and, of course, TomKat’s Suri (come out, come out, wherever you are). And oh, Gwen (pictured) just popped! But boy, does she make it look haute, huh?
Does anyone else notice baby news and pregnancy dominating celebrity media attention lately? If it’s not TomKat’s mysterious, silent birth, it’s Britney’s outrageous parenting antics, or Gwyneth’s funny names, or Brangelina’s highly publicized Namibian stakeout.
And we all know that any day J.Lo’s going to add fuel to the fire with her own Anthony-Lopez creation.
Even uber-partiers like Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan have been quoted with their hopes for motherhood. One day, they all concur, they want to have children. Some say a couple, some, like Tori Spelling, say nine.
Hello to the latest baby fad.
Let's just hope that all these celebs realize that being a mom is rarely hip or trendy every day. The hip and trendy are merely fads; things that are exciting or flashy in the moment, but long-term, hold little sway. Being a mom and having a child is a life-long commitment, something that requires dedication, self-sacrifice and unconditional love.
Poor Paris has no idea.
