Of Babies & Rumors & The Whole Crazy Thing

We were “treated” to more pictures of Kidman out running this weekend. She cares so much for the fetus that she is getting all this exercise so that she can be a fit and trim mummy when it’s "show time". I am sure that Nicole knows the date and the name of little fetus already. I wonder if Keith is kept up to date. Isn't it amazing that this is a perfect time for Kidman to give birth. It was timed so well. Think about it, Kidman and Keith have pretty much had the longest honeymoon on record. The world is convinced they are in love and committed to the future together. La de da. As they were settling in to being just an old middle-aged married couple it seemed like there could be nothing else that could be said about these two. Well, I guess we were wrong, weren't we?

Why a baby now? I know we have asked this before but it still intrigues this writer. Is it because her career is at a turning point and she wants to slow down and raise a "natural" child? A child that her true love can't control? A child that she can parade around and help keep her viable to the mommy population out there? Was it time to continue the fantasy that is her marriage? To show the world that everything is hunky dory? Well it is, isn't it? These two sad and lonely people met and fell in love and while one never had a child, the other had problems having a "natural" child. They came together and the earth shook, and soon there was a fetus in her womb. Yeah, right. It was probably as romantic as two pumps in a cup and the equivalent of a turkey baster in the doctor’s office. I do wonder what Keith was thinking about as he was filling up that cup? Old girlfriends? Large amounts of money? Covers of magazines of the happy, healthy family that he helped create? The joy of knowing everyone in Australia wants to be him? The realization that shooting a load in the cup is just part of the plan and the plan needs to go to this next place?

As for Kidman, look at the pressure she is under. Her career is in serious trouble. Yes, she still gets some good parts and she does get a few good reviews but it is the big budget movies she can't open nor carry. Most importantly she is 40. Her career is about her looks as much as is it is about her talent. For someone like Kidman who appears to place her looks above her abilities, this birthday must have been a crisis. She will no longer be the "it" girl. She will play more mothers, more eccentrics and a lot more character roles. The opportunity to be the main star in a movie is going to disappear. What will Nicole do? Have a baby.

While everything looks secure and happy in her marriage, we know that if the first four months of the marriage are an indication, there must still be some baggage to deal with. The woman admits in an interview that she doesn't really understand her husband or his work – so what will she do? Have a baby.

With her one true love apparently very happy and secure with his child bride and lovely young daughter; her two adopted children do not need her for their maternal needs, so what will Nicole do? Have a baby.

She will have a baby in a country where she is exulted, where she is worshiped, the place she had her fairytale wedding. The place that she spent almost a year filming an epic that is so very important to her future as an actress that it’s failure could really mean a very abrupt slow down. Kidman knows she needs the support of the Australians to push this film. She needs that adoration and how can she continue it? Have a baby.

As you can see this baby is important. It will humanize Kidman to the masses; soften up her image a bit. Let people make assumptions about the fairytale that all is well - the baby shows that. Keith will always be tied to her.

She will be a mother of a young child into her fifties. This baby solves a lot of problems and creates some new myth making. As for the other children, well who needs them? She gave Keith his first child, even though there are rumors to the contrary. Yep, everything is fine and dandy. She is rumored to have made some recent stops on the road with Keith that went well, and she keeps up that exercising. She is such a good woman. A quintessential role model isn't she?

May I just say this recent post seems a desperate attempt to discredit two people who may have found happiness outside of the limelight for once in their tumultuous lives.

I guess you can't possibly be happy for them because you wouldn't have anything else to write about. As stated before in previous blogs and I'll make this a blanket statement since I've been told that this blog is the the culmination of several skeptics...I think many of you writers have a deep-seeded "Hate" stemming from...I can only assume a very bad childhood, otherwise you couldn't possibly spew this vile garbage.

stillhopefull said...

I thank you UM, for putting out there what everyone else thinks. My biggest question is...why is it that when Tom and Nicole divorce they both seem to be able to produce childern? Really makes me wonder what truth is where because none of this makes sense.
First she is so fragile from prior miscarriages now she is pregnant and seeing to it she is fitter than any other pregnant woman.
Of course she really has nothing better to do now. And apparently the only one willing to hang with her is the trainer...who she pays very well I'm sure.

maclen said...

Kidman is a very basic and one dimensional celeb... everything she does... doing all the usual industry promotions... magazine interviews and photo shoots... the assembly line interviews while sitting in a chair while the reporters are herded in the front door and exited the back and then on to the next... the usual tv talk shows... Good Morning America... The Today show... Letterman, the Tonight show...etc. Just like every other celeb... and she is still a failure, all 3 of her films last year having bombed. The "sensational" Vanity Fair cover story with all the huge "revelations" didnt help keep those movies from flopping. Her own apathy and repulsion for the Invasion kept her from doing any basic Pr for that film... apparently even she can spot a turkey...the botox the lip injections just make her look like a clown. So I dont believe if she can even have a baby, that its gonna change her failed career. She's a little late to that party... right now you basically cannot find a celeb who is not pregnant... and no doubt the battling for the baby covers will intensify, and no doubt kidman is in deals as we speak to find a Aussie mag or wealthy aussie sucker to bankrole her multimillion dollar baby cover, because she is definately on the lower end of this celeb baby cover race. But whatever it takes to keep her name in the headlines and keep her failed career even remotely viable is what kidman is all about. And to this point, she hasnt done a very good job.

yingyang said...

I don't understand why she's not covered in a rash with everyone stroking her ego, she must be itchy in her own skin. It must stink to know money can't buy you happiness, all though it seems to have paid for a husband and teacup made baby. For someone who's a high risk pregnancy she sure has no problem bouncing that puppy around. Poor Urban baby

notachance said...

I have to agree with white trash on this one.

Just more innuendo and lies about two people that you have no real knowledge of.

Find a new horn to toot.

doublewide said...

she's pathetic and desperate. and it just gets worse by the day. i'm just sick that keith is caught up in this. they are no more in love IMO than a big eyed babboon. contract contract contract

how anyone can see this differently is beyond me. she's been caught in so many different lies, it's hard to keep track of them all.

and stillhopefull, excellent point! why after NK and tom are married to other people are they all of a sudden able to produce children.

oh, and i firmly believe NK's marriage to tom was a contract, too. i think she is dispicable.

notachance said...

"and stillhopefull, excellent point! why after NK and tom are married to other people are they all of a sudden able to produce children"

doublewide - this happens to lots of couples. I, personally, have that in my family. They couldn't conceive together, got divorced, married different people & wallah - children (after being told they would never have children). So - it does happen.

yingyang said...
"For someone who's a high risk pregnancy she sure has no problem bouncing that puppy around. Poor Urban baby,,,"

That is a truly tragic aspect, yingyang, to kidman's usual self obssessed, self centered mentality. It just occured to me after seeing the latest work out photo op. and its the sad imagining that this so called baby that is supposedly in her stick figure body must also be sharing kidman's emaciated and undernourshed, if not malnourished condition. I have come to expect her to disregard the underprivileged and starving 3rd world children she's completely ignored as a failed UN Ambassador, but to submit her own so called kid to malnourishment because of vainity makes her look more and more dispicable.

doublewide said...

lord, isn't that the truth, maclen.....what is with this woman? oh yeah......fame and money, that's what.

maclen said...

Well, doublewide, she's clearly replaced this fanatical working out for her constant filming of any movie she can get her hands on. With that not going too well, she is now constantly visiting a public gym and running in public view of all the paps. Usually she would be complaining about the intrusion of the paps on her personal life, and knowing full well she could just as easily work out in private, but then that wouldnt guarentee that she would be seen and photographed, which is a fix she so desperately craves and needs to fulfill that oh so revealing vanity.

Imahick said...

Interesting points in the blog. I do think that this baby is something she THINKS she needs, perhaps to feel fulfilled. Her adopted children obviously don't "do it" for her. I think she never really bonded with them. I think that she sort of moved away from them in 2004 and now, they don't really want to be with her anymore than she wants to be with them. It's mutual. However, I think she feels like she's missing something in her life, and of course, she's reached that magic 40.

Sadly, I think the baby is a short term replacement for her career, that has taken a downward trend. As per the blog ... if you don't have a movie to film, if your first two kids really don't want to have much to do with you...just have a baby. It's all the rage, right?

I also think that she is obsessed with exercise, because she has a fear of gaining weight. Of course people will deny it, but she has been treated in the past for an eating disorder. So now...she is pregnant and should gain some weight. But...that just doesn't sit right with her. She can't accept that ... and so she exercises excessively ... even though it isn't in the best interests of the baby. I think it's sad, personally. I hope this baby is born safely. I think that the child will be raised by Nannies, but perhaps that isn't the worst outcome, given that I don't get any warm or maternal feelings from NK.

banbotox said...

As in any sitcom when you run out of interesting story lines the characters either get married or have a baby...seems kidman has had to do both in order to keep her story interesting.

I don't understand how anyone can think kidman's life has been tumultuous. When? Sorry-don't see it.

maclen said...

banbotox said...
"As in any sitcom when you run out of interesting story lines the characters either get married or have a baby...seems kidman has had to do both in order to keep her story interesting."

Yeah your right banbotox, that's the perfect description of team kidman's page on publicity 101. She must have a couple of ex-sitcom writers on the payroll to feed her the usual scenarios. Too bad they're not from quality shows...As for the hardship in her life, getting divorced was her major tragedy... one just wonders how she was able to come out of it with her sanity and well being intact...

You would have thought she would see she's starving herself and the "baby" Its scary to witness how insane people get where vanity is concerned. I really hope they are watching her and her baby. It only takes a few bad choices to deprive a developing baby of vital needs. I would only be speculating, but it appears she's pushing herself to the point of risking her child, and putting "her" and only her in the spotlight.. Make's me sick to think she could be that twisted.
talk about a narcissistic person!

notachance said...

I would venture to say that NK's docs are well aware of her exercising by now. If they're not then they have their heads up their asses. She most probably has two OB's, one in LA and one in OZ.

And somehow I doubt that a personal trainer would be willing to risk anything at all with any pregnant person by over-exercising them.

Not sayin' I agree with all the exercising, just pointing out that with how visible she is we are not the only ones noticing.

undecided said...

I think you're right about everything depending on the success of the movie 'Australia'. When is the release date? Is there time to claim it was the baby's first word when the three of them walk the red carpet together?

White Trash said...

"I do think that this baby is something she THINKS she needs, perhaps to feel fulfilled."

Well, don't a lot of women feel this way? I'm much more fulfilled having my kids and think I'm a better person because of them.

________________________________

Apparently, whoever is complaining about her enthusiastic exercise while pregnant doesn't regularly workout. I work out vigorously 5-6 days a week and did that while I was pregnant with both my kids. I ran 4 miles up until my 8th month. There are several women at my gym who are pregnant, in their 3rd trimester and still working out. If you read the latest research it's hogwash to stop exercising once you become pregnant. As long as you and the baby feel fine - you can continue throughout the pregnancy.

"I think you're right about everything depending on the success of the movie 'Australia'. When is the release date? Is there time to claim it was the baby's first word when the three of them walk the red carpet together?"

Australia is set for release in late Nov. And as of now, kidman's kid is speculated to be due in july...that timeline and date of course calculated due to the past remarked leaked excuses for kidman's boob job going all the way to Oct of last year... remember, she was gaining weight for a movie... then a few months later its was because she was "expecting"... but anyways I'm digressing again. So if you calculate she is in fact due in July, her next movie comes out in nov... thats 4 months time... now notice, usually celeb baby covers come a few weeks to a month after their birth... and of course brangelina's baby got a record price of 4 mill, and of course the money went to charity, now tomkat took a different route from the usual celeb baby pix... whether they couldnt get a higher price than brangelina or not, they held off on the first baby cover, and instead of going for money, they played the expectations game...and I think they got a bigger impact because of that. Remember, the industry pundits began to froth at the mouth, wondering, "where is suri?" and "does suri even exist?" And how long did they wait to unveil suri? Yeah, 4 1/2 months. So will kidman go for the money right off, or will she also play the expectations game like tomkat and also shill her movie while she's at it? So many things to ponder...

White Trash said...

Guess you all haven't been over to Lainey's website today. It's a doozy!

music said...

Thanks for the heads-up... but I already read this in the blog:
"She gave Keith his first child, even though there are rumors to the contrary. Yep, everything is fine and dandy"

notachance said...

Australia's big premiere in November?

Perfect timing for:

1)The non-Oscar nod - or will there be the post-baby bump so-to-speak?

I personally think that this movie will be good in spite of her being in it - we Americans are enthralled with OZ, not to mention Hugh Jackman. I think we will go in droves to see it and it will do well at the box office.

2)This will be a perfect opportunity for the APC to unveil the little darling. I can almost see them doing it for NO money too. Just to prove that they (or she) are above that - even for charity's sake.

isitoveryet said...

If Kidman has an eating disorder or an obsession with exercise and being thin, she has a mental disorder. If that is the situation, do you honestly think she is going to listen to what her doctor says when they tell her to back off on the exercising or that she needs to eat more - NO! How many women are told that it is bad to smoke cigarettes during their pregnancy, but continue to do so anyway - it's the same concept here!

With regards to the love child, I think we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg right now!

doublewide said...

i've seen it

doublewide said...

by my previous post i meant i'd seen lainey....lots of us posting at once.

and i agree with music....yup everything is just fine and dandy in kidbanland..

Imahick said...

Interesting about the "love child." If this is true and there is a child that was put up for adoption 14 yr ago...what is the huge scandal. Sure...it's newsworthy, but a scandal? He wasn't married...many people have given up children for adoption, in order to give them a loving and stable home.

So...why is he on the offense? That's what I'd like to know. Why was he "chirpy" backstage when discussing this story?

I guess maybe his BBP will be disappointed that she will not be giving birth to his first child...but in all honesty, it's hard to believe there aren't more, given Keith's history!

Imahick said...

As far as the exercising...of course, exercise is fine in women experiencing normal pregnancies. But NK has made a big deal out of her tragic obstetrical history. On top of that ... she is 40, which is old in obstetrical terms. And...she has a history of an eating disorder, which I believe is still an issue ... especially given her appearance (hair, hands etc.)

All this makes her hi risk...and I think running and spinning and exercising herself into a flushed haggard wreck every day makes it all look very odd. And if you are going to tell me she looked refreshed instead of exhausted after her workout in LA the other day, don't bother. In my opinion, she was done in.

That is NOT recommended. As far as the personal trainer...what is his background in training pregnant women with hi risk pregnancies? The fact he was using a heart monitor points out that he is not using the most up to date info on exercise in pregnancy. And although I find this one hard to believe, some have speculated that he was attempting to do a fetal heart rate during the belly exposing picture. Why would that be? There should be NO reason to check the fetal heart rate during mother's exercise UNLESS there is risk. It's far too late if you're out on a road and note that the fetal heart rate is too high or worse, too low. That kind of result would only indicate fetal compromise and should not happen if she is healthy enough to exercise at all.

Sorry...she looks desperate, and it appears that she is obsessed with exercise. With her risk level, that is not appropriate.

White Trash said...

Apparently, the child was born in 1994 in Oz, yet Keith said he was in the U.S. all of 1994 and didn't go home that year. He's laughing it off so I assume he's not too worried about it.

maclen said...

Yeah, no doubt imahick, that photo op was just a planned attempt for kidman to flash her belly to the paps and prove she is in fact "expecting". But in reality, the photos are argueably not very convincing at all. Certainly the confusion of when she is due isnt helping with the pr spin on this whole matter. Most speculation is she is due in july... that would mean she is 5 months along... i just read another online article on a recent urban radio interview... where he not so co-incidently talks up the expectations of becoming a father... for the first time... where it states at the end that their kid is due in June. That would then mean she is more like 6 months along. Again, that certainly makes the exposed baby bump photo op look just too unbeleivable and quite open to even snider remarks. Not very good pr, again, from kidman.

woriedmonkey said...

Keith's on tour in California right now, why the hell isn't she with him. I'm sure they could find a 10=star hotel for the night or is she flying up to see her 'beloved' .. or is he seeing her ? Since she professed so sincerely to want to be spending pre-baby time with the love of her life.....

doublewide said...

probably because there is no hotel with 800 thread count Italian sheets.....

NK doesn't know how to tell the truth, nor follow up her statements with the appropriate action. period.

ConfusedAndDeeplyTroubled said...

Why a baby now? I know we have asked this before but it still intrigues this writer.


You have GOT to be kidding me. Okay, I think it's time for you and your minions to take a step back and allow sanity to reign.

Who in the world do you think you are? What...pray tell, gives you the audacity to question why a married couple chooses to have a baby? All jokes aside, you really should consider seeking help for this grandiose opinion you have of yourself. Goodness, what an ego...Seriously, when it comes to narcissisim, Ms. Kidman has nothing on you and it does not help that you've some gullible souls fueling it on.

With blogs like these and people actually agreeing to the asinine postings, It's no wonder some think the premise behind the movie Idiocracy isn't too far-fetched. My fervent hope is that none of you have children.

doublewide said...
"Keith's on tour in California right now, why the hell isn't she with him..."

It does seem doublewide, she wasnt at the first underwood gig in San Jose... so she's 0 for 1 so far.... two more to go. So what is likely, she'll only make it to just one gig in Cali or actually pass on all three? Obviously kidman has basically zero interest in watching urban in concert... well, she is not alone, and judging by urban's dwindling cd sales, its not very happening for kidman to bother to show up. Perhaps she's worried she'd be booed or simply overshadowed by underwood's massive audience... after all it is underwood's party.

CJ said...

People.com said they were in CA having diner with four friends. If they can find 4 friends (or was it trainer, assistant, and ummm, 2 other people we know not to be her kids) why can't Nic take them to a concert after the meal? Don't tell me the music is too loud for her fragile condition - lots of preg wives tour with their husband.

maclen said...

...oops... just a quoting clarification on my last comment...

doublewide quoted worriedmonkey, who said...

"Keith's on tour in California right now, why the hell isn't she with him..."

...just wanted to give the correct commenter the credit...

cricket said...

She can't go see him play she needs to exercise.She was seen at a resturant splitting a piece of asparagus and a poached egg with Keith.She'll need to spend the night excercising with her trainer to burn off that massive amount of food she consumed.

CJ said...

Hee hee hee. "Spend the night exercising with her trainer". While the hubby is away (or at least busy) the wifey will play huh.

getaholdofurself said...

as others have mentioned, miscarriage is not uncommon. nk's age is what makes this pregnancy high risk, but i'm willing to bet her doctors are keeping a close eye on her.

i discussed exercise with my doctor when i became pregnant and after i miscarried. he was very clear -- my exercise regimen did not contribute to my miscarriage. if we were the delicate flowers some seem to think we are, our grandmothers and great grandmothers never would have had babies and forget about women in third world countries.

yingyang said...

you could not pay me to be NK for all the money in the world

She is a hollow shell of a human

isitoveryet said...

With regard to the naked belly photo op, wasn't it reported that the photographers said themselves that her belly appeared to look strange?

inittowinit said...

In this blog the writer says that she probably has a name already chosen for this baby. I'm sure that's true but it won't matter - she'll forget it shortly after handing this kid over to the nanny anyway. NK will not breastfeed, even though that's "natural" because God forbid she sag those new boobs, God forbid she have a kid depending on her for nourishment or anything else, and God forbid she nurture a thing!

This baby is nothing more than for attention for her because as any skeptic knows, it's ALWYAS about her! I would love to be there the first day people start going gaga over the baby and could care less about her anymore - she's no longer pregnant. Once that kid is no longer a baby, it will become just a "kid" and people will no longer oogle. She's be a washed up actress hasbeen with nothing in her tummy, no baby, and she won't even remember its name. By then, she will have nothing and the paps will no longer even care!!!

isitoveryet said...

Can you breastfood while pumping Botox into your body?

inittowinit said...

isitoveryet said...
Can you breastfood while pumping Botox into your body?
-----------------------------------Good point. Judging from her newly found wrinkles, I think she's laid off the Botox for a while. But that stuff is poison and I'm sure it remains in your system for a while. I've been told at LEAST 6 months past the last injection and I'm sure they halflife lasts a while longer after the symptoms return. It doesn't matter though - she will tell the world she's breastfeeding because that's the natural thing to do- So far I haven't seen her do a THING that's in the best interest of this child. She may be laying off the botox, but she obviously had some lip enhancement - I wouldn't even be risking collagen if it were my baby, let alone all of the running. And some of you can argue all you want that it's safe to run - but not at her age &/or with her history!

isitoveryet said...

That's what I am assuming as well - this is botulism she is injecting in her body. If she breastfeeds and then continues the Botox after childbirth, that seriously can't be good for the baby. He/she is getting botulism through the breast milk. So, if she can't breastfeed because she starts shooting up again, she can kiss the big boobies that she always wanted good-bye!

notachance said...

"And some of you can argue all you want that it's safe to run - but not at her age &/or with her history!"

-----------------------------

inittowinit - you make it seem like 40 is ancient. It isn't. There are many women having babies well into their 40's now, without much ado. Stop making it seem like 40 is too old to have a child.

Her history - no one here is actually privy to her real history - so how on earth would you really know what her doctor says is safe or not.

Stop harping on the same old stuff.
-------------
Here's a question for discussion:

Boob jobs and breast feeding - can you?

isitoveryet said...

Yes, you can have fake boobs and breast feed.

Fake boobs
Botox
Nose job
Bleached skin
And so on and so on

It's nice to be so natural.

wastedemotion said...

Breast feeding after a boob job?!
It all depends....she may or she may not be able to, but I dont what makes any of you think she'd bond with a baby in that way?!

isitoveryet said...

Now that I think about it, she would have had to request the ability to breast feed at the time of the procedure. So the fake boobs came in at the time of the cracked ribs, so was it her intention to have a child then?

notachance said...

Actually, what I read about augmentation & breast feeding is this:

If the implant is inserted thru a flap underneath the breast or the armpit then breastfeeding should not be a problem. If you have an incision around the nipple however, the surgeon must take great care not to damage any of the nerve endings that are vital to the feelings necessary in breastfeeding.

I read further some accounts from women that had their surgeries prior to having children and they wished they'd chosen to not breastfeed as their breasts did not look the same afterwards. I seem to recall that Pam Anderson had hers taken out before the kids with Tommy Lee, right?

White Trash said...

yeah, that's if you did indeed think Nicole actually had a bood job. I'm still saying NOPE. She would have gone bigger if that were the case.

Imahick said...

NK has made very sure that we know how much difficulty she's had with her pregnancies in the past. Rumor has it that she underwent fertility treatments to get pregnant. She's had problems maintaining a pregnancy, required fertility treatments, has an eating disorder and is 40 yr old.

Excessive exercise is not a good idea. Say what you will...those who will support her and everything she does. But she should cut back abit. She looked exhausted in some of the pictures. That is NOT good.

I've now seen two articles in the last week that say she's due in June...if true, that makes her over 20 wk (more like 24 wk). Where is the baby? There is such a small bump, you'd think she just has gas.

She needs to put on some weight and assume a more moderate exercise regime, in my opinion.

And seriously people...does anyone REALLY think NK will breast feed, assuming she is capable since her "broken ribs?" I think it's more likely that Keith will breast feed than her. She is as nurturing as a King Cobra.

maclen said...

Yes, good points there, imahick...
Well I am getting a big kick out the recent story of kidman's "bat face" making the rounds on the online news... and coming from the Sydney Morning Herald no less. Very satisfying to see that more and more outlets are coming out in criticism of her botox abuse. But that is a result of failure in the business, and her disengenous shenanigans are no longer going to carry her to critical acclaim and treatment of kid gloves by all. The "cracks" are all certainly beginning to show, and another magazine interview or another premiere is not going to help at all.

getaholdofurself said...

i think i'll defer to my doctor regarding exercise during a high risk pregnancy rather than a group of people who get great pleasure out of picking a woman apart because she's a certain someone's "baby mama."

Boob jobs and breast feeding - can you?
-----------------------------------
As for being 40, it doesn't matter if many women are "doing it".....many women also do cocaine - doesn't make it safe to continue her excercise regime with her history. I NEVER said or implied she's too old to have a child! There are genuine increased risks involved in geriatric pregnancies. These risks wouldn't prevent me from having a child at her age if I truly longed for one, but given her past experiences, the risks are greater and I just can't understand why she isn't being more careful! And as far as knowing what her doctor says is safe or not, some of us here DO know what is considered standard protocol for a pregnant woman of her age and with her self-reported personal history!

Yes, it's quite possible to brestfeed after a boob job - enlargement OR reduction - but again, I highly doubt it will matter...

nk and i have similar pregnancy histories and i'm a smidge older. i was fit and worked out prior to getting pregnant so my doctor had no problem with my exercise regime. if there had been complications, that would have changed, but i was healthy so exercise was encouraged.
