LeAnn Rimes: “I’d really love to have a child of our own, but we’ll see”


Now that I’ve covered Adele this morning, the rest of the day is going to be a total bust. I can’t even work up the energy to care about this new LeAnn Rimes interview. LeAnn is still promoting her new album (which is nothing like Adele’s), and she’s still full of delusion and narcissism (unlike Adele), and it’s boring (unlike Adele). LeAnn tells Country Weekly Magazine that she’s thinking about babies – surprisingly, however, she makes it sound like getting knocked up is still far away.

LeAnn Rimes dropped the bombshell news that even though she’s “enjoying every minute” of being a stepmom she wants to have a baby of her own with her husband Eddie Cibrian!

“They are awesome,” she said about her two stepsons. “And it does make me want to have a child eventually. I enjoy being a stepmom and I’d really love to have a child of our own, but we’ll see,” the singer/actress told Country Weekly magazine.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, LeAnn took to her blog recently to say that she doesn’t consider herself a stepmom but just a mom.

“In our house, in our family, we remove the ‘step.’ We really are all… simply family,” the 29-year-old songbird wrote. “Eddie’s sons, I treat as if they are my own.

“Step. Stepmother, Stepfather, Stepchildren — the word ‘step’ can take on such a connotation to so many in our society,” she said. “A family is a family. In my eyes. There’s no ‘step’ about it.”

In the Country Weekly interview, LeAnn described her family dynamic. “We have two right now that are 100 percent taking plenty of time up and it’s definitely a learning experience for me, never having been around kids and having kids. They are our number-one priority and that’s been a totally new thing for me. It’s good, but a totally new experience for me. I’m enjoying every minute of it. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy it.”

So maybe we should be on the watch for a LeAnn Rimes baby bump!

I wonder… why is LeAnn not all about having Eddie’s babies? I’m not saying every woman has to be all about babies, etc, caveat, etc. I’m saying that it’s odd to me that LeAnn is super-loved-up with the man that she finally “won” and you would think that she would want to mark her territory further by having Eddie‘s baby immediately. Plus, she would want to Single White Female Brandi some more – Brandi had two of Eddie’s babies, after all. LeAnn must copy or outdo her. Also, if LeAnn got knocked up, wouldn’t she be more sympathetic as a person? I think so. People love babies.

So why isn’t LeAnn all over it? Is a body image thing? She just got her perfect bony body and she doesn’t want to gain the weight? Is it about her career? Because she doesn’t have much a career at this point. Or is it because she worries that Eddie will dump her if she focuses on something else for a change? Poor LeAnn… it’s hard to imagine what it’s like in the center of that crazy.

    Translation: I’d rather not get fat! But, the media attention could be worth it since I’ll be stalked for at least 9 months…hmmmm…but to be porky? IDK.

  2. brin says:

    I really don’t see her having kids (and I hope she doesn’t for the kid’s sake).
    Eddie cheated on Brandi when she was pregnant and Leann wouldn’t risk that.
    She is also totally selfish and wouldn’t take the chance of gaining weight, getting her psoraisis back and sharing Eddie.

  3. Happymom says:

    I’m guessing she doesn’t want to do that to her body and she’s afraid of Eddie’s wandering eye during her pregnancy. But yes-I’m sure all that attention is tempting to her. What a dilemma!

  4. Lindy says:

    Yeah I think it’s a body thing–she doesn’t want to get fat (and is afraid her homewrecked dong will stray if she does). If I were a bettin’ woman that’d be my bet.

  5. gee says:

    Maybe she think’s he’ll cheat if she’s pregnant.

  6. Dibba says:

    Aren’t kittens born with their eyes closed and blind?

  7. Julie says:

    woa who wears a bandage dress that fits loose?

  8. bigchili says:

    It could be that she wants a “surprise” pregnancy and be all “wow, we’re so excited. This is just meant to be, we weren’t even trying for this yet.” So she would have to make it sound like they want to wait a while.

  9. Jezi says:

    This could be many reasons. 1. She has psoriasis which means should would have to get off of her medication for at least a year to conceive and that means should would suffer from her rashes during her pregnancy, 2. she would gain weight and I’m not sure that would fit into her being Brandi thin project, 3. her and Eddie go on vacation and like to leave the kids whenever the kids interfere with their busy, yet selfish schedule. She knows a baby would take away her ability to stalk Eddie properly and she knows how Eddie loves having 100% attention. Since he did blame Brandi becoming a mom on the reason why he lost interest. He wasn’t getting all the attention he used to.

    So those are my theories on why she hasn’t gotten pregnant yet.

  10. Christine says:

    I think Eddie put the kabosh on the kids thing with Leann. I’m sure he passively aggressively manipulated her into it, too.

  11. sapphire says:

    Didn’t someone mention that her medication for psoriasis has to be stopped bfore trying to get pregnant?

  12. Baylor says:

    she said the same thing when she was Dean, for years.

    Also, can you imagine LeAnn pregnant and therefore not being able to fly around stalking Eddie towards the end?! Can you imagaine that mess?!

  13. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Leanns singing voice and talking voice are so different.

  14. Nancy C. says:

    she doesn’t want to share eddie’s attention anymore than she has to. part-time children are best.

  15. Iggles says:

    Eh, I’m not with you on this one, Kaiser.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with what she said. I’m glad she isn’t rushing into it to “mark” her territory. That she can be loving and accepting towards her husband kids is a GOOD thing. I’m glad she isn’t a step-monster or views the boys as a threat.

    In the Country Weekly interview, LeAnn described her family dynamic. “We have two right now that are 100 percent taking plenty of time up and it’s definitely a learning experience for me, never having been around kids and having kids. They are our number-one priority and that’s been a totally new thing for me. It’s good, but a totally new experience for me. I’m enjoying every minute of it. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy it.”

    THIS is beautiful. A very mature answer from a woman who has had plenty of petty moments.

    Best wishes for the boys! I hope their parents + stepmomma can continue to put their best interests first!

  16. KatScorp says:

    WeWe is wa-haaayyy too insecure to a) gain the weight to conceive, b) cease her psoriasis meds and risk Eddie/media seeing a flare up and c) ending up in the same boat as Brandi (*cough*Shaena Marie*cough*).

    Good evening darlings. We’re spoilt for WeWe threads at CeleBitchy right now; Christmas came early 😀

  17. Harley says:

    I can’t get past the hideousness of the dress….

  18. Jezi says:

    @Iggles It would be beautiful wouldn’t it? If it were true. If they cared about putting the boys first then they would fly into LA consistently to be with the boys instead of going to fashion week. Or how about when Eddie was supposed to fly in on the weekend but instead he followed her to some little concert she was giving. Meanwhile, he hadn’t seen the boys in weeks. Or how about leaving the boys with his parents so that they could go on yet another vacation. Or how about her not exploiting the boys in multiple photo ops. Or paying attention to them rather than being on twitter or having the nannies watch them or leave Mason unattended in the water at the beach. There are many, many examples of how they do NOT put those boys first.

  19. Rita says:

    LeAnn has been pumping out this “I’d love to have a baby” crap since she was 16. It supposedly made her fans go “Oh,what a loving Christian mother she’ll make” (big big sigh). The fact is, Eddie got snipped and tied after his second child and the tube is forever plugged (two years ago, he was also castrated).

    Eddie told her in no uncertain terms that there would be no children. Imagine LeAnn coming after him for spousal and child support after the divorce.

    On a more postive note, the next time you have lunch with Adele I would like you to suggest she record Evanescene’s My Immortal. She should sing it accompanied by only a piano, violin, and a cello (Not Cello Green). Wow, that would be great.

    (Any royalties I’m due from this suggestion can be donated to charity.)

    @Your Mama-dobro jutro

  20. brin says:

    LOL…welcome back, Rita!
    @Jezi…good point, and remember the emergency room trip they didn’t bother telling Brandi about?

  21. Madisyn says:

    If he cheated when Brandi was pregnant, then THAT is probably her biggest fear. I also agree with Jezi when a child comes, nannies or not, she wouldn’t be able to ‘watch/stalk/babysit’ him properly.

  22. Jenn says:

    Eddie being snipped is the best news I’ve ever heard and I’m betting it’s true. No way LeAnn wouldn’t mark her territory otherwise and it would market her sympathetically and as putting her stepsons first when all she’s doing is trying to figure out another angle.

  23. your mama says:

    I cosign with everyone who thinks she won’t get preggers b/c she’s scared her fellow squinity would leave her ass or cheat on it. About the being too selfish – that doesn’t seem to stop many women from having children (in H’wood & out) unfortunately.

    @Rita – Dobro Jutro Draga <3 Just got off the phone with my cousin in Zagreb and she said the weather is beautiful there!!

  24. Kloops says:

    She doesn’t want kids, Eddie doesn’t want more kids and she doesn’t want to gain a pound or change her body in any way because she’s anorexic. Assuming Eddie has *not* been snipped (I hope he has) she will only “accidentally” get pregnant if she thinks he’s starting to stray.

  25. It is ME!! says:

    Just because Eddie is sniped doesn’t mean that vasectomies aren’t irreversible. The shorter the time between vasectomy and reversal, the better chances of him being able to produce a child with her. If he really was castrated (hee hee, good one, Rita), then yeah, his breeding days are DUN. We can only hope, yeah?

    That being said, this horse faced bitch needs a baby about as badly as a Kartrashian needs one. As in, NOT!!

  26. Daiy says:

    This chick biggest fear is Eddie will leave her or lose interest in her. To get pregnant, she would probably have to stop her medication which would result in horrid, flaky skin. Eddie is extremely narcissistic and shallow. He wouldn’t be able to look at her let alone touch her. Plus, he cheated w/her when his first wife was pregnant. This girl just won’t risk losing her big prize by getting knocked up. It sucks for her because I am sure she really wants(she doesn’t need it) a kid.

  27. rudypatudie says:

    Everytime I see her , I laugh out loud.

    She is creepy looking. And that squinty face and those boobies and the twig like legs. Ugh. And the camera supposedly adds 10 pounds.

    She is laughable to me. Just so pathetic.

  28. beclove says:

    Maybe the snippage is the reason she is acts so whacko and inappropriate with another woman’s kids. I personally think she is so insane and deluded she would risk it and have a baby if Ed could help her make one. The attention that goes with pregnancy has GOT tempting to her…

  29. i.want.shoes says:

    Cray-cray Leann doesn’t want to just have Eddie’s baby… she wants Brandi’s kids! I bet she thinks she can get them to like her more than they like their own mother. That would be the best way to out-do Brandi.

  30. DetRiotgirl says:

    @Rita @YourMama Is one (or perhaps are both) of you in Croatia right now? I’ve been busy lately, and it seems I’m out of the loop! Croatia is BEAUTIFUL! Count me jealous ladies 🙂

    As for Falcor, eh. She’s still crazy. One of my friends is pregnant right now, and she sent me this chart that compared how big the baby is at every stage of it’s development to various fuits. For example, she’s five months along right now and her baby is the size of a cantaloupe.

    I think with Leann, she would have a similar chart only it would count how big the baby is in tabloid coverage. For example; five months equals two US weekly mentions and a side bar on the cover of In Touch, eight and a half months equals three American cover stories with passing mentions abroad, at nine months she gives birth to the cover of people magazine.

  31. Melissa says:

    I think she doesn’t want children b/c she realizes how much work they are. If so, good for her. Plenty of these celebs have vanity babies that they then don’t spend time with and leave with nannies all the time. Listen – I do not like Leann AT ALL, but if this were any other celeb, we’d be praising them for not running around popping out babies.

  32. Rita says:


    Ooooh sure. You’re out of the loop and then come waltzing in here demanding to be brought up to speed. If you weren’t so hot, I’d turn my nose up at you. LOL

    My husband and I just got back from 10 days of driving up and down the Croatian coast. Perfect weather, perfect place, with the perfect companion. @Your Mama is a first generation American from Croatia. I bet she’s one of those tall big boobed beauties from Zagreb but don’t tell her I said that.

    Good to hear from you doll.

  33. JaneWonderfalls says:

    LOL.I’m really trying my best not to just jump on the bash LeAnn bang wagon but almost everything she says, even though there is not really anything wrong with what she said. I just can’t help but roll my eyes…lol. It’s hard to believe this is that same talented little girl that took country music by storm so many years ago.I guess I’m just disappointed in her, like a parent.

  34. why? says:

    This is so funny. I noticed that Leann was wearing a lot of baggy clothes lately and thought she was doing it to fuel pregnancy rumors as a means to promote her album (seeing as how a pregnancy helped Beyonce’s album/single).

    So this new interview must be Plan B: When the media failed to jump on the “LR is pregnant because she wears baggy clothes” bandwagon(they instead wrote, LR wears baggy clothes to cover up her skinny frame), LR decided to address it in an interview.

    How come Leann isn’t about having babies with EC? Several reasons.

    Because a baby is just another “item”(from her swimsuit interview) that she will have to compete with for EC attention. She already has enough problems as it is trying to get EC attention when he is so focused on the Don Julio, Liz, his other mistresses, the bunnies, EC wanting her to look and dress like BG because he has moved on, and his love for “reading”.

    Because it would be extremely difficult to chase EC around the world if she is pregnant or has a newborn attached to her hip.

    I think that LR REALLY does want to get pregnant by EC NOW. If she thinks that tweeting quotes from the Notebook will convince people that EC loves her, then we know that she thinks a baby will fix all the problems in her relationship with EC. She has to put her priorities in order. Right now, making sure that EC affairs don’t get exposed is #1.

    Because EC is a creature of habit. EC cheated on BG when she was pregnant and LR knows that he will do the same to her, seeing as how he sells out his own kids to her for some Don Julio

    Or perhaps we are looking at it all wrong. Perhaps it’s EC who doesn’t want kids with LR and to save face she goes around pretending that she isn’t ready for kids to make up for the fact that EC just doesn’t want to share that with her(while he may say it in interviews because it sounds good, behind closed doors it’s a different story).

    Once again if the kids are her and EC priorities why then is LR STILL talking about those kids AFTER EC stated that he didn’t want his kids to experience ANY TYPE of public exposure, and since this interview is making it rounds on the internet from blog to blog, those kids have been exposed to the public. With each comment LR makes about BG and EC kids, she confirms that EC is a LIAR.

    Of course her hands are already full with the TWO kids she and EC already have, it’s hard trying to sell the “happy family” image when one child is hiding behind parked cars, umbrellas, or walking in the shadows to avoid the paps that his father and stepmother invited along with them.

  35. why? says:

    In Touch has a article about Leann’s adventures as a bonus mom and how she is overstepping her boundaries. I haven’t read the article yet, so it could be like what STAR mag did that one time when they wrote that article about LR and EC marriage being in crisis. Make it sound like it’s an article that is calling LR and EC out, but turn it into a trashfest against BG.

    In Touch is one of LR mouthpieces and they write a fluff piece about LR and EC just about every week, last week they tried to deflect from the LR is skinny stories by writing an article about how BG is skinny(they even used the same words and phrases used to describe LR in their article about BG), so I’m not sure how to take this new article they have printed about LR being a step-mommy dearest.

    From the description on their site In Touch made sure to talk about how it’s causing problems for BG.

  36. Sara says:

    I think she wants to keep Eddie’s attention on her and that’s going to be easier if she isn’t pregnant and she doesn’t have a baby or weight to worry about.

    She seems like she’s in the ‘young wife’ stage. Brandy can be the ‘old wife with the kids’ and I think that Eddie probably doesn’t really want any more children right now.

    Mostly it seems more important to her to run around in swimsuits and little dresses. How is she going to fight naked with Eddie when she’s got a baby bump? It just won’t be as effective.

  37. luls says:

    OMG HER LEGS! She is so thin, that you can see THE VEINS under her skin!

  38. Lucy says:

    I call “bullshit” on her not wanting a baby right away…I think she will be sporting a baby bump as soon as she can…can’t you see how happy she would be on the cover of People magazine with her newborn…she is a total attention whore…

  39. why? says:

    With all that talk about putting the kids first and taking her duties as a stepmother seriously, you would have thought that LR and EC would have refrained from staging photo-ops with those kids. Who am I kidding.

    LR set up a “EC loves me because we embrace before I go on stage” and “my bonus sons are my biggest fans that we just had to bring them on tour with us to show everyone what a loving family money can buy” staged photo-op. And because her bonus sons are her biggest fans, EC son opted to miss his soccer game, you know because an 8 yo child can make a decision like that all on his own.

    But then again LR has to promote that album and EC has to have his Don Julio, I mean “coffee”.

    And the bad thing about this is that EC and LR didn’t even bother to inform the kid’s mother that he would be missing his game. Now I thougt LR said that she was putting the kids first?
