Alright, listen. Fergalicious admits that she’s not really all that maternal and even incubating her child in her womb hasn’t really kicked that in yet. I don’t think that’s necessarily an issue, and it’s bullshit women’s/parenting mags that like to make women feel like there’s ONE correct way to react to everything in life. If you’re not shitting yourself with delight over putting 86 yellow (neutral colour, natch) onesies on your Target baby registry, there’s something wrong with you. I mean, there isn’t, but that’s what they’d like you to believe.
“I’m still waiting for my maternal instincts to kick in, really. I’m sure a lot of new moms can really relate to that, so I’m hoping it’ll happen before it comes out,” she revealed.
Having kids is a mindblowing experience that’s hard to come to terms with the reality of, so why should she be going nuts already? If you are, cool, but there’s nothing wrong with NOT being that way. Sounds to me like she’s bricking it because she’s realising that her whole life as she knows it is going to be turned upside down and start revolving around a little wrinkly crying thing that takes all of your time, energy, attention and money. I’d probably feel pretty similar.
Fergie and Josh Duhamel recently announced that they’re expecting their first child together, which is a big thing for any couple. Hilariously, it was a really big thing for Fergie herself, who got back to her roots and told it like it was when that plus sign showed up on her Clear Blue Easy.
“She was the one when we first found out that was like, ‘This [bleep] just got real,’ ” Duhamel told us at the Moves magazine party at Toy. “Those were the first words out of her mouth.”
He’s looking forward to fatherhood: “I’m not 24, I’ve got some life experience that I think I can impart. My mother was the disciplinarian and my father was more of a free spirit. Hopefully I’m somewhere in between.”
True, girl – that shit DID just get real, and it’s going to stay real for the rest of your damn life because kids will drain you of every ounce of energy and money you’ve got. On the other hand, they give lots of love and are rewarding, blah blah.
Fergie, Black Eyed Pea, is expecting her first child with husband Josh Duhamel. Fergie is 37 and Duhamel is 40. Earlier today Ms. Ferg tweeted “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump.” Cute. The two were married in 2009 in a wedding that probably costs more than anything you will ever buy in your life times 3. No but I’m happy for them, though. Especially because of this great quote from Fergie.
MediaTakeOut has a hot, unconfirmed tip—take it or leave it—that Fergie is leaving the Black Eyed Peas. I know!!!
But that isn’t all, you guys. Rumor also has it, the Black Eyed Peas have a replacement already lined up: Grammy-award winning singer Ashanti.
Obviously, if all this is true, it is such a bad move on Fergie’s part—Fergie is inimitable!—but I can totally respect that she wants to start a family.
And good on Ashanti! Wow! She’s kept a really low profile these last few years, and the Black Eyed Peas could honestly jumpstart her career again. In the meantime, the Black Eyed Peas are getting mmmmaybe a little stale, and Ashanti could be just the dose of ready talent they need.
I don’t know about you all, but I, for one, am really excited that football has started. I just love football. Even though my team didn’t do so well this past opening week (WHO DAT), I’m still all about the game itself. I love it.
Something I don’t love? The way Fergie, doubtless a good singer, has to grunt and growl her way through every song like it’s ‘My Humps.’
Most times when I post these Love It or Leave It things, I’m, like, laughing inside because the answer is ALWAYS, ALWAYS “leave it.” This time, however, I actually love these pants. Seriously. I know many of you probably think that I’m joking, but I’m being completely honest. What do you guys think?
And wouldn’t you, if you were Fergie? I mean jeez. Celebrities are celebrities for a reason, it’s not like they’re going to hijack and plane and ransom the passengers for things like a chin reduction or more Botox or something. Celebrities just don’t do those sorts of things; they should be held to different standards and rules, you know? I mean, could you imagine: Fergie the Terrorist? Laughable. It could almost be an off-Broadway production. And anyway, you remember good old John Wilkes Booth – he was an actor, a celebrity of his day, and HE didn’t get the old patdown on his way into Ford’s Theater in DC of all places, did he?
