CELEB PREGNANCY SPECIAL: Natasha Kaplinsky, Mariah Carey and Dannii Minogue talk babies
Second baby on the way, name choices and reluctance to start a family revealed!
Five news reader Natasha Kaplinsky is pregnant with her second child. Already mum to 13-month-old son Arlo, the news of the pregnancy was announced to family and friends over the weekend. Natasha, 37, and her husband Justin Bower are said to be delighted with the news.
Natasha caused a storm last year when she announced she was expecting her first baby just six weeks after she started her £1 million job at Channel Five.
Since returning to work after her maternity leave, Natasha took a £300,000 pay cut (link) to reduce her hours to just one news bulletin a day, so she could spend more time with her son Arlo.
Across the pond, one celebrity who isn’t afraid of talking babies is singer Mariah Carey. Despite not being pregnant yet, she has already chosen the names of her future baby!
Insisting that they aren’t pregnant yet, Mariah, 39, and husband Nick Canon have revealed on SIRIUS XM’S morning radio show, that they know the name of their baby – who is yet to be conceived!
“We have picked this name out a long time ago,” Mariah announced but she isn’t prepared to share. “We have to keep the name secret because if we told everybody, then someone might use it and then we’ll have to change it!”
X Factor judge Dannii Minogue however, is in no rush to have babies with her boyfriend Kris Smith – unless he gives birth!
Sending out a pretty clear message that she isn’t ready to procreate despite Kris’s insistence, Dannii, 37, told the London Lite, “He would love a baby, he asks me on a daily basis. I’m not so keen. I say to him, ‘If you can have the baby then let’s go for it’. I’m not sure I want that happening to my body.”
