Stacy Keibler: ‘I couldn’t ask for a better father for my children’ (cough, cough)

keibler fit

I keep going back and forth on how I feel about Stacy Keibler these days. Part of me is really impressed (and sort of proud) that she’s moved on from George Clooney in such spectacular fashion. Within a year of the breakup, Stacy is married and knocked up, which is something that’s never happened with Clooney’s exes before (except for his ex-wife, who moved on with John Slattery, that lucky bitch). But another part of me is sort of annoyed by Stacy’s obviousness. Or is it Clooney’s obviousness? It feels like both of them are trying to passive-aggressively steal each other’s thunder.

Anyway, Stacy covers the new issue of Fit Pregnancy, and the interview is a lot like her People Magazine marriage announcement: full of exhausting prose about how unbelievably happy she is. Oh, and she’s expecting a girl. Did we know that already? I think that’s new information. Some highlights:

Her husband changed her mind about babies and marriage: “Before we met, both Jared and I had told our parents we didn’t think we’d ever get married or have kids, but when you’re with the right person, everything changes. My epiphany happened shortly after Jared and I started dating and, once we both knew, we didn’t hesitate — I just knew I was ready and that there’s no one else in the world I would want to do this with.”

Jared will be a better father than a certain salt-and-pepper film star: “Jared is the most thoughtful, loving, kind person. I couldn’t ask for a better father for my children. Our bond is so strong and special and getting pregnant has made it even more so. It’s been so much fun preparing to become new parents together.”

Her birth plan includes a doula: “I’ve always been a student at heart and I’m a big advocate for women educating themselves about the birthing process. Some dangerous practices are standard procedures for hospitals, and women don’t even realize they have a choice about them. It’s so important that you get all the facts and understand your options.”

She’s not stressed & she’s keeping healthy: “I live in the present moment. I can’t control how my labor will be, only what’s going on today… I haven’t felt sick or tired so far — instead, I’ve had an enthusiastic spark that I’ve been harnessing through exercise. I’ve always been conscious of what I put into my body, but now that I’m pregnant I can recognize the positive effects that effort has had.”

“I’ve had an enthusiastic spark that I’ve been harnessing through exercise” – who talks like this about themselves? I might say that someone else has an “enthusiastic spark” but I would never say that about myself (because I don’t – I’m a cynical bitch and I have no spark). Maybe people with enthusiastic sparks are allowed to say it about themselves?

As for the doula stuff… her body, her choice. I didn’t have any doubt that Stacy would be one of those natural birth types. It would only be noteworthy to me if she came out and talked about wanting heroin injected into her eyeballs to help with the birthing pain.

    Surely she’s only saying what you would expect every newly wed with a baby on the way to say?

    So she banked the Clooney contract cheque and now she’s getting on with her life – no biggie.

    • Sayrah says:

      I know. Why does gushing about your new relationship (marriage) have to be seen as a slight against your ex?

      • kri says:

        Agreed. She seems happy and relaxed. I’d be screaming for an epidural, but hey, I’m not a former wrestler. As for her shading Clooney, well…she has some subtle way of doing it.

      • bluhare says:

        When Clooney gushed about *his* new relationship, that’s exactly how it was taken here.

    • starrywonder says:

      Why is she a thing? Seriously? Why is she being papped and on covers? She dated Clooney, they ended it. That’s it. I don’t remember people still following Sarah Larsen around after Clooney ended it with her.

      • aemish says:

        Sarah Larsen probably didn’t have the paps on speed dial. There was a blind today that Stacy’s husband is unhappy and will do a quick divorce after the birth.

      • QQ says:

        Seriously! Why is this chick still in the gossip circuit drives me crazy

      • Pandy says:

        Agree! Washed up wrestler(!!) who dated a hollywood player. So what? I care even less that she’s pregnant. Millions of women do it all the time. Big deal.

      • DrM says:

        @aemish – I am of like mind. I think the speed of this relationship/pregnancy will be followed by an equally speedy breakup….I thought the interview was a bit OTT as in ”me thinks she doth protest too much.”. When you are truly happy and contented you don’t tend to go on about it.

    • The Original Mia says:

      My thoughts exactly. She’s moved on with her life. She was a minor celeb before Clooney and she seems to be continuing in that vein.

      Kaiser, I heard she was having a girl a few weeks back, but nothing was confirmed.

  2. daisyfly says:

    He’s not coming back to you, Stacy.

    • T.C. says:

      She obviously doesn’t want him back if she got married, got pregnant within months after the end of their contract. She seems much happier now. It’s Clooney who is reacting to her by all of a sudden trying to get married and have children.

      • starrywonder says:

        I really doubt that Clooney was so devasted by the loss of Stacy Keiber he got engaged to someone else. It sounded like there was overlap between his end with her and his fiancee anyway from what Lainey and others have been saying.

      • Isadora says:

        And while I don’t really want to throw shade at Stacy Keibler… but… if you had Amal Alamuddin would you really be whining after Stacy Keibler?

        I still wish her all the best in her new marriage and with the baby.

  3. Sonya says:

    Personally her moving on seems less about Clooney than his moving on seems straight directed at her. All I can think when I see that lawyer skipping around is that she is smiling because, being a lawyer herself, she locked down a killer contract that included marriage so she isn’t just another girlfriend when it’s all over.

    • Beatrice says:

      You nailed it!! I’ve always believed that George’s new lawyer fiancée was just a much better negotiator than the others.

      I just realized why I don’t like Amal–to me she looks so much like Megan Draper (Jessica Pare) and I hate the Megan storyline on Mad Men.

      • Francis says:

        Megan’s better looking and more feminine body, she has sexappeal at least Amal has zero.
        Stacey seems level headed, nice, good for her, she sounds very happy. Stacey looks great.

    • Sabrine says:

      Nobody’s trying to steal any thunder. They’ve moved on very successful. Neither Stacy or George looked upset at all when their relationship ended. I’m sure they had fun but it was never all that serious, just two people enjoying each other for a while and that was it, no big deal. I think she’s very happy right now and her focus is on her new husband who she appears to adore and the excitement of the impending new arrival.

      I do think they’re happy for each other. Maybe a phone call was exchanged to offer congratulations on the engagement, marriage/baby news.

      • JennySerenity says:

        So glad to hear that a few people here are happy for Stacy. I don’t think Stacy is trying to throw shade at Clooney at all- it seems that *his* PR team threw a really nasty shot across the bow with their engagement announcement to People magazine. Remember this? “He’s with someone who is a very accomplished attorney. She isn’t someone who is pursuing a career in acting or entertainment. She’s on his level.”

        That was ugly and demeaning as hell…was that really necessary? I think Stacy is happy, in love and celebrating her pregnancy with the enthusiasm most women would show. Also, why is she still a ‘thing’? Bc she obviously has appeal, she sells magazines and most women enjoy reading about other new mother’s happiness. I think she’s adorable. Congrats on everything, Stacy!

    • TG says:

      Ha-ha at the “skipping around” comment. Very good description of Clooney’s latest fiancée.

  4. PHD Gossip says:

    She seems nice albeit no genius.

  5. Ollyholly says:

    She’s so lame, who even cares about her? I doubt George Clooney even thinks about her, she’s fairly pathetic…

    • vic says:

      Well someone does. She’s getting magazine covers and interviews. She’s married and looks happy and healthy. She’s not faded into the background like others before her. She had a fitness editing career before “him”.

      I don’t understand why people hate her or any of his former girlfriends.

      • Christin says:

        This interview was probably done before the big PR rollout of “the one” anyway. I think she’s making hay while the sun shines in terms of promoting health and fitness.

  6. Tanguerita says:

    they both behave like true and cheap publicity wh…es. Normally I would say – they both deserve each other, but seeing that they “move on”, my heartfelt sympathies to their prospective partners.

    • frisbeejada says:

      The whole Clooney engagement thing is just the PR gift that keeps on giving, Clooney is getting lots of lovely, distracting publicity and the chance to work with a woman who can re-position him in the market for future political ambitions/potential cover ups. The Lawyer gets an internationally raised profile for the sake of her career and possibly guaranteed financial security forever – depending on the contract conditions. Stacy Keebler gets lots of lovely free publicity, magazine covers to attract all those fronting deals she’s reputed to have been chasing for ages. How can any of them lose in this? I agree with you they are wh…ing the publicity but I don’t feel sorry for any of them…

  7. nicole says:

    I find it really annoying when women say sweeping generalized statements about hospital practices. Having a doula does not necessarily make your delivery less dangerous. I’m not coming down on her about doing it her way, I just don’t like how she acts like the general group of women having babies do not realize they have choices. That’s unfair.

    • cr says:

      That statement annoyed me as well, what ‘dangerous practices’ Stacy? Name them.

      I’m all about women educating themselves about their health, but where is she getting her info?

      • Audrey says:

        I personally had forceps used to deliver my daughter.

        She was born healthy but what I’ve read after terrifies me.

      • cr says:

        Forceps use is on the decline, but I do really want to know where she’s getting her info? Random sites on the internet? Because there are plenty of evidence-based, research-based sites for her to read. And hospital stats are out there, since she is in the US. Read up on forceps, or c-sections, or vacuums, etc., and then start asking questions of your provider and your preferred hospital.
        I’m all for patient education, but a lot of our patients seem to get their info from Dr. Oz. Or Jenny McCarthy.

      • Audrey says:

        I definitely agree with you overall

        I get pissed when people listen to Jenny McCarthy about vaccines. The anti-vaccination movement is scary. And people are reading articles in tabloids from an actress and treating it as facts.

        Plus the natural birth movement is frustrating. I preach education while a lot of the information just tells women to go natural or they’re bad moms. I just think every woman should do research to make informed decisions. Epidurals and csections gave become so common that the risks are downplayed or glossed over in many discussions. There’s nothing wrong with them but do research and know the risks before deciding

        I’m the first to admit that I didn’t research forceps and what else could have been tried. I was shown forceps in my prenatal class and just thought, “no way those are going in my vagina” and ignored them until the doctor suggested them

      • elisa says:

        @Audrey, I completely agree with you. Women should educate themselves, but just because a woman decides that the hospital route (with or without an epidural) doesn’t mean that she is or will be a bad mom. Plus, anything can happen and however much you plan for a natural and/or home birth, doesn’t mean that will happen.

        At first, I thought I wanted a natural home birth with my daughter, because I thought that I would be more comfortable at home. However, I developed preeclampsia and ended up having a cesarean section. Of course, complications change everything. I just wish there were not so much judging towards women’s choices in birth plans. The natural birth movement (or at least the advocates I encountered in both my pregnancies) were judgy and frustrating.

      • Bridget says:

        Sorry I don’t have any specifics, so pardon my use of generalities. Hospital births do have a much higher rate of unnecessary interventions like C Sections and Pitocin done not because of any actual risk to the mother, rather done on the choice of the doctor. As ALL medical procedures carry a risk, the more interventions done the greater the risk for side effects – especially for things like a C Section or an epideural. There’s no denying that the US has a ridiculously high rate of C Sections at 30% which is well beyond the rate of what is medically necessary and which is still a serious procedure.

        Personally, I made the choice to have a birth in a hospital with an epideural and had a very healthy, un-complicated experience. But in many, many places there isn’t a discussion of what’s actually necessary vs. what’s done just for convenience, and women can frequently be expected to simply listen to their healthcare provider and not advocate for themselves. There’s nothing wrong with having a real discussion about the fact that there are real risks in the procedures that are done every day, and it’s an important conversation that I feel can occasionally be shunted aside because the ‘natural childbirth’ viewpoint can be seen as “judgy”.

    • Wif says:

      It sounded to me like she wasn’t talking about the doula specifically, but the fact that you should be educated before you have birth. And she’s right, C-sections for example are jumped to much too quickly because they bring in the hospital more money. If you tear during birth it heals better than if you are cut, so you need to know that you have that option.

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed. It’s almost Jenny McCarthy-esque.

    • Jaded says:

      Totally agree. I know a fairly offbeat woman who insisted on having a doula and water birth at home and her baby was stillborn. If she’d been at the hospital that wouldn’t have happened, they would have done a C-section.

      Furthermore she refused to have her other children vaccinated.

      • Bridget says:

        I have to point out, if she only had a doula and not a midwife, she had her baby with no medically trained person present because a doula is just a support person, which isn’t a particularly good idea if you go natural or hospital. All of the midwives around here that support home births have specific criteria that must be met including health and age of the mom, no medical risk factors, and they must live within a certain radius of the hospital in case anything does go wrong. If the labor doesn’t progress as it properlyl should, or if anything doesn’t seem right, they get packed off to the hospital.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      If I could post my brother in laws story The Doula – his friends had one and they hated it but he, a stay at home father writer by trade – created a funny story from their experience.

  8. PunkyMomma says:

    Is “enthusiastic spark” the new “conscious uncoupling”?

    • Hannah says:

      It could become that… if anybody actually cared about Stacy.

      • Esmom says:

        Right. But wow, what an equally obnoxious phrase It actually sounds like a euphemism for something like sexual dreams (which I had a lot during pregnancy), maybe.

    • Isadora says:

      That was my first thought lol… With her history of fitness advice and now also the healthy living/parenting stuff she sounds like she wants to be the new Goop.

  9. Lulu says:

    I actually she sounds quite smart when saying, that she’s reading up the whole giving birth cirkus as well as aknowledging that she can’t control the labor.

  10. Kiddo says:

    Please stop making her a thing, media. She is famous because of George, no more than that.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I feel like she was voted off the island a long time ago but keeps coming back like a case of bad herpes.

      (we haven’t mentioned herpes once today so I thought I’d get the ball rolling)

      • Kiddo says:

        Balls and herpes all in one sentence. Not a good visual, O’Kitt. Usually I enjoy balls, but….

        Anyway, yeah, tell her not to go away mad, just go away and don’t let the door hit you in the a* on the way out and all those other adages.

      • Aqua says:

        Wow! Herpes and balls?and just before lunch! I think I’ll take a pass on lunch for today.

  11. Audrey says:

    I hate interviews like this.

    Enthusiastic spark? Pregnancy glow?


  12. Tabbygal says:

    She’s just another graduate from the George Clooney School for Beards. I think George prefers it when the exes just fade back into obscurity but this bitch is refusing to go quietly. He is probably ringing Amal and instructing her to eat a burger or 10 and gently caress her stomach every time a camera gets in her face…

    • Francis says:

      And Amal will be another cast off in a few years. Something is very cold about George and Amal.

      • T.C. says:

        Amal is starting to turn from a lawyer to one of Clooney’s women dresses by him to me with her daily pap pics.

  13. Hannah says:

    I think Céline Balitran (Clooney’s one other ex with a proper job) got married and knocked up rather quickly after splitting with George as well.

  14. Elisabeth says:

    I like how every starlet who gets pregnant now wants to ‘educate’ us peasants on pregnancy and health.

    • Kiddo says:

      It’s more like she no longer has George as a way to make a living, so she is using her pregnancy as a vehicle to get attention. I can’t stand this woman, and it has reached irrational epic proportions.

    • Christin says:

      As if women didn’t have children at home (or wherever they were) for centuries. They act like this is something brand new.

  15. Sarah says:

    I had a doula and still ended up with pitocin, an epidural and they had to use the vacuum. Just depends on your body and things work out.

  16. Francis says:

    She looks fabulous. Good for her, she has a life with a man she loves. George with his contracts sounds like he doesn’t love anyone exept himself. I still say he and Amal are just another Contract, she’s no different than the other starstruck ladies who signed on, just much better educated, but education doesn’t stop a person from being starstruck and Amal sure did rush to marry a moviestar, who has been with every starlet and waitress between from Vegas to Timbuktu. Contract. IMO

  17. Emily says:

    The marriage/baby thing happened so fast that I can’t help but wonder if she was secretly dating Jared before her “contract” with Clooney was up.

  18. JulieM says:

    Say what you want about Stacy, but I have the feeling she and her husband will be married with kids long after George and Amal split up.

  19. siri says:

    It’s remarkable how fast she moved on, but she knew Jared longer, and probably knew he was interested. I’m sure she would have loved to change George’s mind, like all the others before, though. Her interview here…well, she’s just happy- I mean, she finally got what she wanted. AND another rich man, too. I wonder if true love has a place in this kind of happenings, but I guess not. Like with George, it looks kind of pushed, and showy, and it doesn’t feel truthful. But that’s just me wondering. And it’s THEIR life in the end. Stacy gets paid for gushing about things she doesn’t really know that well yet, so we don’t have to take it serious.

  20. please no says:

    Oh yay baby fetishers worshipping the zero talent asshat

  21. aenflex says:

    No tiredness or sickness? Lovely. Wish I could say the same.

  22. Zimmer says:

    I like Stacy and am glad she’s doing well post George. What bugs me about the interview is her saying that she couldn’t ask for a better father for her children. I just don’t think you can know that until he’s spent some time with the actual child. I hope she is right though and hope they are all very happy together.

    • V says:

      I agree! Talk to me about how great a daddy he is when the child has made it to adulthood.

    • Bridget says:

      What else is she supposed to say, though? “Eh, he’s alright I guess”

  23. lowercaselois says:

    Image switch again. She has gone from Wrestler, party girl to red carpet arm candy to healthy living mom. I think she takes a passive aggressive approach in her interviews and in her comments, because she is being inadvertently dragged into the George’s PR Team’s Amal publicity stunt. So whats a girl to do. Maybe she is trying to protect her husband and marriage from embarrassment, maybe she is trying to protect her new image or maybe she is hurt by that type of publicity comments, that Amal is everything that George ever wanted or needed. Actually, I am surprised more of the Clooney girls haven’t been interviewed. I don’t think I would want to be put down in public as an ex that wasn’t good enough or wasn’t smart enough or wasn’t pretty enough. It is embarrassing for Amal and all those ex girlfriends.

    • Leah says:

      I actually think she would come across better if she just shut up. It seems defensive.
      Some of the stories generated comes from Clooneys publicist but half of them are magazines and blogs making up stuff because Clooneys marriage sells. Because Stacey was a wrestler and Amal is an oxford graduate the media was always gonna compare them unfavourably. Even a majority of the comments here marvel at how on earth this Amal woman would be interested in him or how he changed his “type” so its not something that is only coming from Georges “sources”. Its the natural narrative because of how much these women differ, at least on paper. I think its actually quite disingenuous that people are so upset on behalf of his ex girlfriends because there was a lot of shade thrown at those women when they were dating George, precisely because they were wrestlers, cocktail waitresses, aspiring models and so on.

  24. qtpi says:

    Enjoy the last part of your 15 minutes Stacy. The only thing I know about her is that she dated George.

  25. Ash says:

    Glad for her.

  26. Happyhat says:

    I’ve been trying for ages to harness the fabled ‘enthusiastic spark’ over exercise. I’m up to a mild ember so far (my exercise of choice – Insanity. I LOVE it. Every time I do it, I imagine I’m a starlet preparing for a role, and I fantasise interviews where I’m all “Training for this role was so tough, I really had to work hard!” and other such gumph. It seriously helps get you through the workout!)

  27. katy says:

    “…I’m a cynical bitch and I have no spark”

    Me too! Hooray for cynical, sparkless people!

  28. Happy21 says:

    Yet another ‘celebrity’ famous for doing next to nothing besides dating someone famous or being ‘pimped’ by their mother. So so tired of these ‘celebs’ being featured so prominently everywhere.

  29. wow says:

    These “celeb couples” never learn. Whenever they give these “I’m so happy, I’ve never met anyone so (fill in the blank), So and So makes such a wonderful boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife blah blah blah” it just comes off as fake. And when you have to convince others of this as oplose to just “being”, usually it means everything is not as great as they are saying. That’s what I think whenever Stacey speaks these days. Same with George.

    It does seem like they are trying to “out happy” one another in the press. Or moreso Stacey since these are her direct quotes. In George’s case I think its just the media doing what they do. I haven’t read any direct quotes from Clooney yet, but still his engagement seems like a knee-jerk response to me to her marriage/pregnancy.

    • siri says:

      I think the same. Usually, if you are happy, you just ARE, no need to be on covers, or to have “sources” and “close friends” confirm your happiness etc. As if a really close friend would go to talk to a magazine- absurd. It seems to me that they always try to make the latest partner into “the one”, and don’t reflect too much on the former. It’s as if they want to prove it to themselfs, and to the other, that it all didn’t really matter that much, because now everything is SO much better. I don’t mind, just don’t ask me to believe it. As for Clooney, he never really made statements about his private life, he feeds the “sources”, and after that the media just invent their own multiple versions of one little detail. Stacy is ‘ahead’ of him, and his ego must be hurt badly by this. But I’m also sure there is more to this than just being a response.

      • whoozy says:

        Agree about the out-happying each other, but I don’t know the lead time for a cover for this particular mag.not all turn out quickly like gossip rags, and a cover story is sometimes done weeks ahead, so she may have done this before he put a rock on Amalrexia. Actually I never had an opinion of her..never watch wrestling, and I doubt she got much from gc..maybe earrings (they all get some sort of diamond memento). I am a little tired of reading these ‘contract’ comments..the only way you can impel someone to keep quiet about you is if they are your employee or there’s no reciprocation. I think the old exes don’t talk is because nobody likes telling about being dumped and duped. I recall Vegas girl, who I thought took more crap than the others, was offered big bucks for the break up tale and refused. Do any of you follow astrology? Interesting because there was a rare grand cross of planets around the time gc radically changed his life pattern..but astrologers say you should never make a big move then, cause the planets move back to normal..and so do you. Just thought that was interesting timing.

  30. Andrea says:

    I have always liked her ever since WWE. I thought her coupling with Clooney was odd (he didn’t seem her type) and made me believe the rumors that he IS gay(friend of mine even said she has some friends in lake como area that claim he IS). Anyone else think it? I question it now that he is engaged, but maybe it is a John Travolta type deal?

    IMO, I wouldn’t trust hospitals for a birth ESPECIALLLY in the US. From what I have heard, it takes the natural part of childbirth completely out of the experience. Women are NOT meant to give birth on their backs. end of.

    • siri says:

      Is Clooney gay? I personally don’t get any clear sexual vibes from him. Most of the time, being with a woman, he looks like the protector, the mentor, the big brother. Only with Canalis I felt some sort of tension, but mostly coming from her side. He seems a bit uncomfortable when it comes to intimacy, and he might be a bit boyish/childish in general. His current move with Amal I regard as ‘ too soon too fast’-aside from the PR aspect of it. He might regret that later. He stated many times how important friendship is to him, and he seems most comfortable within that frame, also with women. That doesn’t make him gay, however. Travolta seems a completely different thing to me, but they both have in common that protecting their image is most important to them. And sure, for that, they even get married, and have kids. It’s sad, really, isn’t it?

  31. Harriet Craig says:

    Why is she considered a celebrity? She was an escort for an actor and then a hostess for some dicey, off channel game show and a wrestler.
