In a recent interview, actress Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she’s not quite done having babies. She indicated that she’d like to have one more child, because motherhood has been so enjoyable for her. One thing she said in the interview struck me a little odd: she said now that she has kids, she never feels lonely.
CHRIS MARTIN is going to a busy boy this summer – wife GWYNETH PALTROW wants another baby.
She said: “At first I thought ‘OK, that’s it, I’m done, no way will I have more.’
“Then my son turned two and you think, ‘Oh, I don’t want this to be the last two-year-old I have.
“Maybe I’ll do one more.”
The couple have two children, son MOSES, three, and daughter APPLE, who turns five next month.
In a chat with New magazine, Gwyn added: “Motherhood enriches your life in the most incredible way.
“My children have given me a real life. They’ve opened up a new world to me. I never feel lonely, I never feel I don’t know what my purpose in life is any more.”
I’m sure a lot of parents feel enlightened by their children. I know I do. But saying that she “never feels lonely” now that she has children? That’s a little strange. Since Gwyneth and husband Chris Martin spend so much time apart, it doesn’t surprise me at all that she feels lonely. But spending time with your kids isn’t quite the same as having an adult companion. I’m sure it fills some of the void, and that’s probably why she’d like another one. But in the end, having more kids isn’t the same as having a husband who is available to spend time with you. And what happens when the kids grow up?

“And what happens when the kids grow up?” That’s easy. You have another one. They don’t even have to “grow up”, they just have to not be cute little 2 year olds anymore.
Having had a very sad, ugly childhood, my children have helped me to form a connection to the world I never felt I had before. I, too, am no longer lonely. “Lonely” in a more esoteric way…maybe she means it that way, too. She makes me want to pull my hair out, but perhaps being in the public eye the way she has put herself out there makes you essentialy lonely…or…maybe thinking you are so highly evolved makes you lonely because you are so far above the fray of others??
I think she might adopt, she’s said before how much she hated pregnancy.
Or maybe she forgot how much she hated it, a lot of women do.
No more GOOP offspring, please.
I got dibs on the Goop’s next baby name!! Boy OR girl–she’ll name it Bamboo…. XD
She just left a BH salon? I hope it was just for a consultation.
Well quit talking about it already and have another kid already. All this talk and no action gets extremely boring to those who aren’t that interested in the first place.
That outfit probably cost more than my month’s salary but she still looks like she rolled out of bed into whatever rags were laying on the floor.
There is some reason this is news? I want an Esclade.
No no no the next baby name will be something like “Bookcase”
Sadly, SolitaryAngel is probably right.
But the more I think about it, the cooler ‘Bamboo’ sounds. I think I need help.
gah! more deep thoughts from gwoopeth.
She’s just trying to get some good will using the fertility card. Also, maybe it’s a little dig at Madonna, who can’t have biological children anymore? Whatever, she is so boring and insignificant.
Her “husband” was never and is never around.
I am surprised he even recognizes her when they do meet. Considering the amount of chemicals in his brain she should be thankful for that.
“The fertility card” — well put! It’s true, no one in Hollywood ever says they don’t like or want kids (except George Clooney).
@ Sue D: LOLOLOL I think we BOTH need help…
