    Why are some of you people saying “finally” or “it’s about time”? They’ve only been married for 3 years. Granted they’ve been together longer than that, but still. I think it’s “about time” somebody was actually married more than a hot minute (or even bothered to get married in the first place) before having kids. This generation seems so used to people having babies when they’re still practically babies themselves or not building any type of foundation first, so they act like someone has waited forever if they don’t get pregnant until the ripe “old” age of 29.

    If the pregnancy makes her stop wearing those horrible trashy leotards she always wears, than that is a good thing. Hopefully she will retire those leotards forever. She looks like a traller park hooker on those.
