I just love ol’ Doug and Courtney, don’t you? What a beautiful couple. If anything gets my heart to pitter-patterin’, it’s the magical love story of a 51-year-old man gettin’ hitched to the trashiest 16-year-old girl I’ve ever seen. And we all know how the rhyme goes … first comes love, them comes marriage …
But no baby carriages just yet, Lord willing! We know because Courtney’s mom had a good long chat with Radar about it:
“She’s making sure as much as she can at this time that it isn’t happening,” Krista said about her newlywed daughter, who tied the knot Hutchison in Las Vegas in May. “She’s on birth control because she would prefer to wait for children,” her mom said. Her husband might have a different idea though. ”I think Doug would love to have children, but Courtney wants to wait a few years.”
“Courtney wants to work on her career,” Krista explained, but knowing that accidents do happen, she said it would be a joy to the family if her daughter did fall pregnant.
“If something happens we do not believe in abortion, so if God blesses them that would be ok, but they’re not trying for a baby now,” she says.
As a would be doting grandmother, Krista said that if Courtney and Doug did have children: “the baby would be so creative. Doug is brilliant, so creative and they both would pass on so many creative genes.”
Honestly, I just gagged a little bit, no joke. Is it weird that the girl’s mom is talking about this like it’s normal? Is it judgy of me to almost vomit at the thought of them having babies right now? I have a lot of questions, let’s get to talking about it.

I have been so good lately. Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden keep giving incredible interviews, and I have sanctimoniously sidestepped each one. My mettle deserves a medal.
But I officially give up.
The Week in Review: After verifying that Courtney Stodden is 16 (she really, really is), Good Morning America interviewed the newlywed couple. And you didn’t hear a single peep out of me. Nope! (Even though I wanted so badly to post a link to this.)
In that same interview, Hutchison says that his marriage has been a boon to his career: “What’s kind of blown my mind about how this has all gone so global and viral,” he told E!, “is that I have had more opportunity now. I’ve been courted by producers, directors, agents… record executives.” Which is good news because, soon after his wedding, Hutchison was reportedly dropped by his agent (and his mom).

Hutchison, a talented character actor who briefly trained at Julliard, is 51. He played my favorite alien serial killer on X-Files. But you might remember him best from his gut-turning portrayal of creepy sociopathic prison guard Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile.
The couple released this statement:
We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial. But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.
Aww, I think this is great. Every 16-year-old girl dreams of marrying a movie star. Dreams really do come true!
Other advantages to their 35-year age difference:
- Courtney can buy beer and cigarettes if she brings her new husband along. (Kidding! No one cards this girl, guaranteed.)
- She’s 16! Maybe she’ll finally get that used car she’s had her eye on.
- In a few years he’ll pick up the tab for her boobs college tuition!
- Then he’ll actually save money, since Courtney will be able to use her student discount on everything.
Well? Did I miss anything? Help a lady out.
I don’t even want to picture a lover’s quarrel between the two, though. What do you think? Will she shout “You’re not my father!” and slam the door to her bedroom?
