Small Things in All Packaging: Celebrities and Babies

Celebrity pregnancies.  It used to be all about the who, with who, how long, how big, and the most important, what are they (the moms) wearing. Yet, as times change and the options grow, people are now wondering and asking…how?

In these times of laws regulating love, marriage and children, celebrity pregnancies and their public stories are looking more different than they did before. If the idea of Beyonce being pregnant was not big enough, the question of her realistically being pregnant was the real story.  Whether you believe “Beyonce Baby Bumpgate” where she was seen on international TV with a supposedly collapsing stomach or off to her dinner the night before her “birth” where she gracefully moved in and out of a Suburban truck with no problems, just the mystery of “is she or isn’t she” remains provocative.  Why wouldn’t she have her own children?  Did she not want to ruin her own immaculate body and risk the possible millions of dollars in her image alone (and all women and men who oogle the creation known as Sasha Fierce)?  Did stretch marks equal sin?  And did she really have to rent out the whole hospital floor? The spoils of celebrity-dom or a cover-up?

This light shone, regardless of how dim or bright, may bring relief to the number of “everyday” women out there who have issues getting pregnant and have lost hope.  Couples, or single people, who long for an additional member in their family may see hope, and with the rest of us, feel compassion.  Khole Kardashian and Lamar Odom have publicly shared their struggle to have children and have not resorted to using artificial means of conception; they hang on to their faith for help. Singers Lily Allen, Mariah Carey and the JayBey clan have been outspoken about the difficulties and the heartbreak of having a miscarriage.  Hurt such as this seems to have brought out a humbling aspect in humanity, a particularly “just like me” perspective. Maybe even more so since they are in the spotlight.

While some find it to a private matter for women and their respectful partners, more exposure on “the how” or conception process may bring hope and eliminate stigma on the methods of getting pregnant.  Angela Bassett and Courtney Vance used a surrogate to have their twin Bronwyn Golden and Slater Josiah back in January of 2006. The couple had been trying for years to have children, and after several failed fertility treatments, surrogacy became an option.  The bravery to go public with such a decision goes above and beyond the image that celebrities “can do all”, even miraculous things that their bodies aren’t able to do. Just like the rest of us.
