Is it smart to get pregnant with a partner you’ve been dating for less than a year like Kate has?
Kate Hudson is reportedly over the moon that she’s pregnant with baby number two — as well she should be. Regardless of her happiness, is her decision to have a child with a man she’s been dating for less than a year, a man she has no current plans to marry, wise?
The 31-year-old actress has been dating Muse singer Matt Bellamy for nine months, and it sounds like her pregnancy came as a complete surprise. “It was not planned, but they are excited and embracing it,” a source told Us Weekly.
As excited as the happy couple may be right now, I foresee problems down the line. For starters, one of the problems that Kate had with her first baby daddy, ex-husband Chris Robinson, is that their hectic schedules kept them apart. Like Chris, the lead singer for the rock band The Black Crowes, Matt is a musician, and usually on the road. Not the best daddy material one could choose.
Secondly, who knows if Matt was READY to be a dad? He’s 32, loves gigging and it sounds like he liked the uncomplicated nature of his relationship with Kate. “Things are going great at the moment,” he has said. “I am very happy. We just have fun together. Kate is great.” Fun and ready for a serious commitment are two very different things, as Matt is probably discovering right about now!
Still, the situation exists and the couple are making the best of it, which is a great thing. Should Kate have been trying for a baby with a man she’s not even sure will last in the long run? Probably not — but at least she has a great attitude about the curveball life has thrown her!
