11 Celebrities Who Had Babies Young

Date January 25, 2018 17:53

Despite the glitz and glamour, celebrities do not get to pick their babies from upscale stores. Neither do they have their babies delivered to them by storks from the baby factory. Many actually go through the 9-month process or have surrogates carry their babies.


And starting early does have some advantages. First, youth is a big advantage. Young mothers have a lot more energy to spend on children. Secondly, chances are that not many of your friends or colleagues will have babies at the time. So, you are likely to get loads of attention.

Recovery rates are also a lot higher. Your body is bound to get back in shape much faster after delivery when you are younger. In addition, seeing as time is in your hands, fertility may not pose a problem. If you have problems, you can always try again.

There’s a lot more time to focus on a career when babies are out of the way. The sooner children can be responsible for themselves, the better for everyone.

These are 10 celebrities who had babies pretty early.

Starting out as a mother was pretty difficult for Reese. She recalls not being able to afford help after getting home from the hospital. And being new to Los Angeles did not help much. But ex-husband Phillippe was very supportive. And she pulled through.

Most of the celebrity moms say they have no regrets starting early. Now, they have a lot more time to focus on their careers. And they get to enjoy forging connections with their children, which is awesome.
