When young Hollywood stars have achieved their goals when it comes to their careers, naturally their thoughts then turn to motherhood – another achievement to be attained and conquered. And with the likes of Jessica Alba, Ashlee Simpson, Britney and Christina Aguilera all balancing their stellar careers with motherhood, their peers have been looking in and wondering why they haven’t got what these girls have got.
We reveal the secrets behind the baby shockers that are the talk of Tinseltown...
Lindsay: ‘Baby Will Save Me!’
In the week that she failed numerous drug tests and faces heading back to jail in violation of her probation, Lindsay Lohan dropped a bombshell on her friends and family, telling them, ‘I want a baby’. The 24-year-old, who has once more hit rock bottom after drugs showed up in her daily court-ordered drug tests just weeks after completing only 23 days of her 90-day rehab stay, has also attempted to rekindle her relationship with her ex, Sam Ronson, who sources say has agreed to bring up a child with her.
‘She Envies Nicole Richie’
Former troubled star Nicole Richie famously cut Lindsay out of her life once she fell pregnant with her first child Harlow and cleaned up her act, telling pals she “didn’t want anything to do with that wreck” after realising that LiLo would be a bad influence on her family. But despite having fallen out with her former friend, Lindsay is said to envy Nicole’s lifestyle and wants it for herself.
“She’s seen what motherhood has done for Nicole,” spilled a source. “Same for her one-time pal Lily Allen, who went from smoking and drinking girl-about-town to serene mom-to-be, and Lindsay thinks that having a baby will help her to turn her life around.”
Sam’s Back In The Picture
After the news emerged last week that Lindsay had failed a drug test, the actress took to her Twitter to insist, “This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences.” And insiders say her ex, Sam Ronson, who Lindsay reunited with as soon as she left rehab on August 24, is supporting Lindsay in her quest to become
“Lindsay and Sam started speaking as soon as Lindsay got out of rehab. They text constantly,” revealed a mole. “Sam has said she will support anything that gets Lindsay back on track, and if it takes a baby to straighten her out, then so be it.”
Kim’s Pregnancy Scare
Currently in the middle of a vacation around Europe with her mum, Kris, Kim Kardashian sparked a major baby alert when she was spotted buying three pregnancy tests during a few days in London.
And with insiders revealing the reason for her trip was to get over her recent break-up from her latest man, Dallas Cowboys star, Miles Austin, rumours abound that Kim wasn’t sure if she could be pregnant by Miles or her bodyguard, Shengo Deane, who she was caught on camera kissing.
‘Her Emotions Are All Over The Place’
Kim bought the tests after realising that she was eating much more than she usually did and when she found herself feeling emotional and cried on the flight to London.
“God gives you what you need, not what you want and sometimes more than you ever dreamed of,” the reality TV star Tweeted last week, sending the baby rumour mill into overdrive. And sources have spilled that her Dhs360,000 shopping spree at Hermes, is Kim’s way of taking her mind off things.
“When the pressure’s on, Kim goes shopping,” revealed a pal. “It’s her way of coping with things. Her emotions are all over the place right now.”
Jessica Picks Her Babydaddy
Known for throwing herself headlong into new relationships, Jessica Simpson has been telling pals that her man-of-seven-months, Eric Johnson will make perfect father for their child.
Having wanted children with both her exes, John Mayer and Tony Romo, Jessica had also considered having a child with her best pal, hairdresser Ken Paves, spilling, “If I don’t have kids by the time I’m 40, Ken Paves and I are going to have children!” But after a bitter row with Ken – who has replaced her with Eva Longoria – Jessica has turned all her attention to her new man, Eric.
‘Eric’s Struck Gold’
Eric’s estranged wife Keri Johnson, has warned Jessica, “Eric is plain out of money.” And the ex-football player gave up a place at the Wharton Business School in Philadelphia in order to be close to Jessica in LA.
“Eric thinks he’s struck gold because Jessica is infatuated with him,” spilled a pal. “He wants to marry Jessica and give her babies. And if it doesn’t work out, well, he’s seen the amount of money Kevin Federline walked away with…”
“She’s crazy in love with Eric – so they’ve decided to make a baby,” a source told the Enquirer. “It looks like Jessica’s dream of having a baby is finally coming true.”
