Megan Fox brought some good old fashioned baby-daddy drama on Monday night when she debuted her baby bump at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Megan was there – with Will Arnett – to promote the sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of the Penis-Faces. We spent too much time yesterday theorizing about the identity of Megan’s baby-daddy, given that she and Brian Austin Green had split up last summer. I still thought it was probably BAG’s baby, and E! News now says that it is.
Megan Fox did not publicly address her pregnancy in red carpet interviews or while fielding questions during the panel discussion. However, multiple sources later confirmed to E! News that she is indeed expecting her third child with Brian Austin Green. Megan is in her second trimester, according to an insider.
The actors’ divorce is still pending, with Megan’s attorney last filing paperwork Jan. 29; no future hearings are scheduled at this time. However, according to the insider, their divorce “will likely be put on hold for a while—or forever.” The couple, who briefly called off their engagement in 2009, are now focused on Baby No. 3. “This pregnancy was not planned, but when they found out they were extremely happy.”
In spite of whatever differences that caused them to split 10 months ago, “Megan and Brian love being parents,” the insider tells E! News exclusively. “They are working really hard to be together and one unit—not only for their children, but also for each other. They are looking forward for the arrival of their new baby.” And Megan knows she can rely on Brian, who’s “been a great partner and father.”
So BAG gets to have his cake and eat it too, I suspect. I’m not saying BAG is a Machiavellian genius, but I am saying he gets to have a beautiful young wife at home, popping out babies regularly (which is what he wanted), and his hot young wife is also the breadwinner who supports their whole family. Meanwhile, Megan did chat with E! about all of her rules about technology and her kids:
On technology: “Noah is too young and I try to keep them from television and movies for the most part. I think any sort of screen—whether it’s television, iPad or iPhone—is really bad for their brain development so I try to remove that from their lives and I also want to deter them from ever being on social media because I think it’s detrimental to a child’s self-esteem. I have lots of opinions on this… I do let them watch Pixar movies. We do stuff like that. We watch Peter Pan together. They have no idea what I do. Somebody at their school will tell them eventually but then it won’t mean anything because they’ve been around it their whole lives so they’ll be like okay. I’m still embarrassed of my mom.”
Turning 30 this year: “I’m not very ceremonious. Even with my own kids, until they ask me for birthday parties, we don’t do big birthday parties. I just don’t care. It’s just a day. I’m practically already 30, what’s the difference? It’s like a month away. What really changes? As long as everything is holding up well, then I don’t care how old I am. By everything, I meant mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.”
I get that when kids are really little, it’s not like they’ll remember it if you throw them some lavish, crazy birthday party. But I still chuckled at “until they ask me for birthday parties, we don’t do big birthday parties” just because it’s such an amazingly no-nonsense thing for a parent to say. Is a 5-year-old supposed to say, “Mother, I would like to have a giant astronaut-themed birthday party this year!” And only then, when he says those magic words, will Megan agree to it? Because she’s not going to bring it up. The ball is in HIS court.
