We're having a baby, my baby and me...

That was the song Ricky Ricardo sang to Lucy Ricardo when she told him that she was expecting on I Love Lucy in 1953. She could not say the word pregnant on television in 1953. After living through the last 48 hours, I can see some benefits in not being able to talk of such things.

Let’s look at all the tales. The first is that Nicole Kidman is pregnant. Well until the bambino pops out of her womb in pictures I don't believe it. Let's review all the rumors.

1. Kidman is pregnant- sorry can't buy it. She isn't showing. If she is as far along as we are led to believe, then she should have that bump and looking at the shots it’s not there.

2. The baby is due in May, June, July or August. No one really knows. Wendy Day couldn't tell reporters. Kidman’s own mother thinks it might be July. Wonder why?

3. Did they or was it a Petri dish? Overwhelming opinion is that Kidman was inseminated by using a donor’s eggs and some sperm. Keith's sperm?? No one knows and there is a question. Did Keith shoot a loop in a paper cup at sometime? Many feel he didn't and Kidman may have wanted it that way. I mean while I, like many, would love a dream night with Keith Urban, I don't think I would like to have his gene pool be part of my child. Sorry, Keith, I don't think your wife did either.

4. Is it really being carried by someone else? Kidman was supposedly fitted for a fat suit in New York in October for The Reader. That movie fell through but she still has the suit… and she knows already the sex of the baby?

Why now? Why have this baby now? Rumors say she was fired from The Reader. Box office for the Golden Compass is less that what was calculated. There are rumors that the movie company was going to announce that Kate Winslet, the original choice for the film, was going to start production soon. Something had to be done and Kidman probably wanted to save face. Kidman must also score big in her new movie in the homeland so have the royal baby to insure a hit.

Also, Kidman's one true love and his young wife will have another baby. Some say she will this year and if that baby is anything like the young daughter he already has the cuteness factor will be off the charts. Plus Kidman took a big beating from Katie revealing that her stepchildren call her Mom. Doesn't matter how you define that, it has to hurt. Kidman has no work coming up and that would make some people ask what is it that she does except make bad movies? Well if Jlo can have a baby, Nicole can because she is different than the average celebrity mom, she is also queen of Australia. This child will be an event. This child will be a freak show.

With the Screen Actors Guild set to strike this spring Kidman has to do something to keep herself in the tabloids. She has to be seen. You can now time her appearances in the rags. This baby will give her at least a year in the tabs and she will know no peace in Australia. Since she couldn't marry royalty she has created her own royal persona. Except her choice in a spouse isn't royal at all. Nor is her marriage. Rumors are that the marriage is strained. There were 35 days that they were not seen in public since November. The thing that seems so sad is that Keith Urban will be a good dad. I see how he reacts to children and he is genuine with them and he is affectionate. But this child may never experience that. Rumors are rampant about when Keith learned about this entire thing. Some say he only learned a few days before the rest of us. His reaction is baffling - fake smiling after it is announced and flipping the bird and pushing people out of his way. Was this pregnancy a way to circumvent rumors about Keith and his future touring partner? You have to wonder. You also have to wonder if a man over 40 has had to deal with a pregnancy before. Is this the first child he has fathered? What is going to happen to his career? This was really an important time for his career to get back on track. The co-headlining tour, being invited to join Kenny Chesney on his summer tour, recording a new record and a headlining tour to follow. It's all up in the air now. Also, this will close the door to some of the long term fans. Kidman will always be a part of his life forever and she takes over everything. Maybe Keith is getting ready for retirement?

So, she is supposedly having a baby. What kind of life will this future prop have? A mother who wants the title but not the role. Well, will I stick around for the big event? Why not? In all good drama there is a bit of comedy and if this wasn't so sad for the supposed baby and for Keith it would be damn funny. The famewhore is supposedly spawning; get your popcorn ready. It’s going to be a long show.

Definately, from the first leaked story to the daily mail... to the weeks long photo ops... the denials, the dresses, dropped movie role... to the confirmation, this whole thing certainly has teamkidman's ham handed, subtle as a bull in a china shop, transparent as a nose on their face inept PR schtick...designed and targeted to the likes of Notachance, that monument of steadfast and iron willed conviction, who's opinion seems to be built on a mound of sand, easily destroyed with each days daily incoming of the days news tide... but i digress... yes, urban myths, this story will do doubt be as torturous as sittng through one of her films, and as humorous as perusing their hilarious Photo ops!

don't believe the lies said...

My popcorn was popped days ago. This is playing out far better than any of her flops over the past years.

I too cannot and will not believe it until I see it. Too many things just don't add up in the the grand scheme of things.

Apparently there are rumors of this being her and Keith's second kid? I guess their saying she miscarried the first one in Feb. of last year? IF this is true...and that's a big IF....why is she out galavanting all over town? Shouldn't someone with her past be at home resting and taking it easy? I am baffled by it all even though I shouldn't be. lol

I agree that Keith would be an excellent father one day. I just wonder if it's going to be with her? *gasp*

notachance said...

Thanks maclen for thinking of me, I appreciate that.

And now, from out of where, there are rumors of a prior miscarriage? I can't believe that wasn't anywhere to be found when it happened. Are we making it up as we go here?

Yet ANOTHER photo op. Is loud music good for unborn babies?

"The July birth date emerged after the expectant parents went hand-in-hand for their 12-week ultrasound last Wednesday at the Sydney Ultrasound Clinic for Women in Kent St. It appears the baby was conceived about the last week of October when Urban flew to Sydney from Los Angeles to celebrate his 40th birthday."

Conceived around his birthday? That's mighty convenient - and an easy PR story. That like many others won't be bought into either.

"It is understood Kidman's plans to join Urban on his US tour from the end of January remain unchanged, with the couple returning home in March for his Australian tour."

Because touring is LESS stressful than filming a movie? And again, is LOUD music good for unborn babies?

I hope they release a picture of the baby emerging from the womb. Otherwise I'll never believe it really happened. Unless of course the *predicted* miscarriage announcement arrives before then.

maclen said...

...sometimes, some rumors remain just that, rumors, usually unsubstanciated. And, sometimes rumors become devices for the popularity deprived celebs in a vain attempt to sell their movies, by rehashing them in magazine articles, sometimes years after the fact. Placing them suddenly into the realm of common knowledge, (and so then, it must be true, as celebs would never lie to a member of the media) It is up to the discriminating reader/hearer, upon reading or hearing of said rumors, to determine, with a combined effort of simple commom sense and a rudementary understanding of human nature, which ones they decide to believe or discount. Sorry if you are unable to do that, and are constantly asking other commenters which ones are believeable, understandable, or logical.

Yes, that is a big IF... if its true, dont believe the lies... (the next commentor obviously doesnt understand that you are engaging in conjecture.. (Conjecture, kon-jek'tur, n. Supposition; oppinion without proof: surmiss...) and just as the pregnancy story in the daily mail would have been another rumor... but save for the fact they leaked it themselves... perhaps they will believe it when, and only when kidman mentions it in an interview in a couple of years to shill another movie.

banbotox said...

The miscarriage allegedly happened while she was re-filming Invasion, during the car crash that knocked her out. That would have been in February and it was circulated in the magazines at the time.

I agree UM-this would be hysterical if it wasn't so dang pathetic.

biteme said...

Wow! I have to come hear to find out all the "rumors". I agree, if she is preggers, she would be home taking care of herself with all the problems of the past miscarriages.

She will not be on tour with him. Never planned to. I cannot see her in a tour bus in her "delicate condition"

I hear they plan to raise the kid in Australia, so why buy a new place in Nashville if you are going to be in Oz? Whatever!

Keith "flipping the bird"? I would pay big money to see that picture. That is not like him at all.

Psst .. just wanted to remind you of your forgotten pledge.

Nicole Kidman Needs a Time Out

I propose that in January of 2008 we ignore Nicole Kidman. Starting in January - no more talking about her. No posting articles about her on web sites or internet message boards. Ignore her. Forget she exists. Freeze the Granny Freeze. No comments regardless of what happens. We all know that no one watches her movies. Avoid her on TV; don't buy magazines that put her on the cover. Perhaps, just perhaps, ignoring her we can all get some peace of mind. I doubt she will care nor notice, narcissists only look at themselves. It will make me feel much better jumping off a ship she has been steering for way too long.

cricket said...

I agree.I'm not going to belive she's pregnant unless I see pictures of her giving birth.I just don't buy it.I thought she might have used donor eggs because her's have to be as rotten as she is.I didn't think about someone else carrying though.It's perfect for her she can stay a string bean,won't have to miss a botox injection.I don't think she really wants to be stuck with a kid though.I'm leaning more toward fake pregnancy with a timely miscarriage when people start to notice she never gets a bump.Then hopefully a divorce due to the stress and pain of it all.BOO Hoo

Sonora_Melody said...

You guys/gals are wasting your incredible talent at weaving fantasies. If I were you, I would write scripts or books and get paid lots of $$$$ for them.

JapHal said...

i've been waiting for you account on this..LOL... Im just sittign and watching... I do wish the best for KU But dang that wife of his is sooo annoying..

biteme said...

If you check Keith Urban's official site it says they are "expecting" a baby. Does not say she is pregnant.

maclen said...

Well, I'm getting a big laugh over those pics of the "happy Couple" Urban myths has been adding to the home page... they are the first set of photo ops taken the day after they announced they were expecting. It is very telling, that the first reaction by them publicly, is not one of inital joy...happines, or even pleasantness, But of an almost abject terror... an almost public humiliation. It almost seems like they have a fear, or a dire forboding that their little announcement will soon have a very tragic ending, and hope it doesnt backfire on then, pr wise...I mean seeing as her movie career crashed and burned last year...will it actually work for her if this too fails and people are somehow suspect of her integrity? Because, really , her pr team has really been biteing it hard.

Tara said...

First, Several people are taking the month off and are not posting- Urban Myths is not just one person..
but this whole farce started on Dec 31 when the rumors started...

This weeks People has a different photo for each paragraph. Seems to me that these little jaunts were all planned to go along with the lovely People Magazine article ghostwritten by Wendy Day.. Good point about the use of the word expecting as opposed to Pregnant.

realitycheck said...

oh yeah nobody ever uses the word expecting anymore. Somebody call Oliver Stone. He would fit in perfectly on this blog!

Sonora_Melody said...

Did Brangelina's PR use the words "expecting a baby"? -> YES

Did Gwyneth Paltrow's PR use the words "expecting a baby"? -> YES

Did TomKat's PR use the words "expecting a baby"? -> YES

Did JLo's PR use the words "expecting a baby"? -> YES

Why should anyone expect Nic and Keith to be any different?

As I said in a previous post, you guys/gals are wasting your talent/time with your fantasies (and lies, I might add).

"BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH..."

maclen said...

... kidman got her moment of glowing press, after years of utter failure, and she planned for it with the series of photo ops of the glowing couple, very boringly walking in and out of restraunts.. oh yes, she's really... and i mean really trying to get her britney on... and to tell you the truth, the intensity is really underwhelming. She is already a footnote to the pam anderson pregnancy story , to the ETs and access hollywoods. And compared to these absolute train wrecks, kidman is just so bland and boring, it would suit her well to hide out in Oz, because in her case it is completly correct... she is out of sight, she is truly out of mind to movie goers.... magazine readers... etc. People are far more into the cruise scientology bio, spears train wreck... lindsey loopiness...

Then why do you bother with writing a blog, and inventing all your fantasies and lies about NK and KU? Why not devote your time and energy to "cruise scientology bio, spears train wreck... lindsey loopiness"????

You're such hypocrites!!

don't believe the lies said...

The difference between, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth, Angelina and Katie was that they REALLY WERE/ARE PREGNANT AND EXPECTING. I highly doubt that Nicole is. It's just another one of her media games for attention. It's sad and pathetic.

Sonora_Melody said...

"The difference between, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth, Angelina and Katie was that they REALLY WERE/ARE PREGNANT AND EXPECTING. I highly doubt that Nicole is."

and you know that because....??? Stop spinning your fantasies and lies! You're looking sillier and more demented each time you post.

Sonora_Melody said...

"BLAH BLAH BLSH BLAH ...."

not anon said...

Well I think she's pregnant and am looking forward to watching her face melt into a pile of brow furrows and crows feet :)

The fat suit idea is pretty funny - I can't help but think of Desperate Housewives and Marcia Cross :). Nikkers reminds me a lot of her character.

maclen said...

The only way dont believe the lies, kidman can get any headlines is by arraigning these pr stunts, the only way she gets attention from the media is to leak these type of stories to the gossips, or by flashing her boob job on the cover of vanity fair... or rehashing her past gossip leaks. Her movies are not popular enough to warrent unprovoked media buzz, so she has to work oh so hard to create it. Us members of these blogs who enjoy mocking her every blatant and shallow move and frozen expressions clearly out number the devoted dimbulbs whos number clearly guarantee that everyone of her movies is a failure. She clearly rules over an enpty Aussie throne.

realitycheck said...

maclen, sonora and i have said the truth and you know it.

The people that dont believe Nicole is pregnant think that because they dont want to believe it.

If no one cared about Nicole this blog wouldnt even exist. And right now the E boards have been bombarded with posters on both sides of KUNK. There's a moratorium on new threads there's so many. NKU is active as ever and this blog is getting more posts with every new entry. No, no one cares....

And to the rest of the posts here...BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

Imahick said...

I think she's pregnant. Sadly, I don't think Keith knew til a short time ago...since Christmas. And I think it's thrown him completely off balance. His whole tour is not really geared to cater to his fragile frightened knocked up BBP's needs. He's going to be pulled in 1000 directions and his attention will be pulled away from his career, as always.

His career will continue to take a beating because of this. All that crap she spouted about gardening in Nashville...well, that was just that...crap. She has never intended to spend time there. That has just been an attempt to satisfy those in his industry that are starting to dismiss him.

"No...No...I really am a country artist...when I'm in the US anyway. Really I am. And of course, I live in Nashville...the center of it all. Yes ... it's true that I've sold my only home here...yes, it's true that I've only been IN Nashville a handful of times in the past 15 months and when I've been here, I've stayed in a hotel ... But listen to my wife, whatshername, even she says we're gonna live here. She loves living here ... she was here two days in the past 18 months, and just LOVED it. And we've bought a farm and will raise goats on it. Unfortunately, my extraordinarily fearful wife, whatshername, wants to have HER baby with HER family in Australia, so it may be some time before we actually see our goat farm...I suspect we'll fly into town sometime in 2009 to milk the goat and get earthed for a few hours. So...don't worry. We're country to the core...my extraordinarily fearful wife, whatshername, LOVES Nashville. She's a goat farmer at heart afterall."

biteme said...

Very well said imahick. I agree about the Nashville part.

For those that are admirers of her, go to the sites that love her. You tell us we are wasting our time, but yet you keep posting that we are wasting our time and to get over it. You are on the wrong site.

biteme said...

All I was saying was that is says they are "expecting", so everyone assumes pregnancy. They say they are expecting a baby and they probably are, but do not say how.

If she is really pregnant, she needs to get out of the spotlight and quit being out and about and being photographed. Go home and take care of yourself.

maclen said...

Imahick, biteme, those are some very lucid thoughts you have there. In fact, i believe this goat she loves to talk about, in fact in her mind, represents the ever shrinking herd of goats she considers her loyal fans... who will swallow anything and everything she hand feeds them. But in the reality, are too far and in between to have made a difference in her failed career, and led to the slaughter of her movie flops, and are more than willing to be slopped with this pregnancy swill...

biteme said...

maclen, you make my day. I just love to read your comments.

Well, I have been reading this blog for a while and never really posted till now, so I have had time to think about some of this stuff and have to admit, lets me know I am not the only one who thinks this way.

banbotox said...

biteme, you are far from alone with your thoughts. A few worshipers that post here have the belief that UM is one person and as Tara commented..it is a blog of many, many who are sick of her and the games.
I think I can speak for many that have come to realize that she has the depth of a bird bath and the creditability of bird poop.

undecided said...

I believe Nicole is pregnant for the simple reason that Bob and Marianne acknowledged it. I can't see them going along with some scheme pregnancy for PR no matter how much they love Keith.

biteme said...

undecided, where did you see that Keith's parent acknowledged this?

I would love to know where you people find this stuff, I am so out of the loop here.

undecided said...

There was a short clip on Australian news, Bob and Marianne on a bike, being asked about it, Bob said everyone was very happy.

It was News Nine Australia, don't know if the clip is up anymore.

cricket said...

I don't beleive the Urbans would go along with a PR pregnancy.But do you think anyone told them it was for PR?I'm sure they think it's for real and will be devastated when she has her PR miscarriage.

CJ said...

Cricket, I'm not even sure Keith knows it's a PR pregnancy. I'm sure she made one big announcement to everyone (who was there) at one time. I wonder if she told her kids before the media did.

For those of you who seem to think that the sceptics have no basis for even expressing the belief that the pregnancy is false, your opinion is baseless. How many times in the past have we gotten pregnancy rumors? The rumors confirmed or unconfirmed have been floating around almose every months for the last 15 months. To be honest, beside the story of the boy who cried wolf, there should be a picture of NK. Why would anyone believe anything that comes out of NK or her Reps mouths.

As for the short clip on Australian news, of Bob and Marianne on a bike, being asked about it, Bob said everyone was very happy. That sounds like something a family member would say when they have nothing else to say. I doubt they were told in a normal manner, in the same way normal families inform each other of life changing events, I would not be surprised if they read about it first in the media, hell I wouldn't be surprised if that's how Keith learned about the pregnancy.

My basic problem with this is that I see Keith neglecting his career more and more. My radio station has already stopped playing music from the last studio album, and instead only play his pre-NK hits. I think this says alot about the music he's recorded after becoming involved with NK, it's forgettable. If Keith's not careful, while he's catering to NK's every need, the world will move on and he'll find his career dead and buried.

That sounds like typical Bob Urban. He's never been especially chatty that I recall.

banbotox said...

perspone said...My radio station has already stopped playing music from the last studio album, and instead only play his pre-NK hits.

Mine too. There are three country stations in my area and I rarely hear any of Keith's music. If they do play a song-it's pre-K.
