Megan Fox’s baby daddy is Brian Austin Green, ‘pregnancy was not planned’

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.”

[From E! News]

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.

    Mothers like this drive me crazy. Maybe celebrating a birthday is nothing to her, so now she’ll pass that onto her kids. Some of my children’s happiest memories are the parties they had or went to. The day belongs to them. BTW the way Meggie, by the age of 30, you should know how NOT to make a baby.

    • kcarp says:

      I always throw my daughter a birthday party, I feel like it is my way of showing her how happy we are she is here.

      I don’t rent small ponies, Bryan Adams, or personal rocket rides but she can have as big of a party at Chucky Cheese or someplace like that as she wants.

      • Nancy says:

        kcarp: I think that is a sweet response. Showing your daughter how happy you are to have her. Others disagree obviously today, I guess birthdays aren’t happening……but I know my children and your daughter appreciate that we take the time to make their day special and let them know how much we love them :) Only happens once a year!

    • SamiHami says:

      So what? Different things are important to different people. Who cares if they don’t throw big parties for their toddlers? Why would that drive you crazy? I never had big birthday parties. It didn’t scar me for life.

      • Nancy says:

        SamiHami: You’re right. I’m living through my memories and my kids. They always get their favorite meal on their bd, not toddlers, to this day. I have worked with ppl of different faiths who didn’t celebrate birthdays or holidays. I just want all kids to be happy, cause the farther down the road you get, as we all know, the harder it gets.

      • PrincessMe says:

        I agree SamiHami. We’re not really “birthday party” people. We have an outing/do something special and have a treat (cake, ice cream, whatever they want). Our children aren’t scarred, and they actually look forward to going somewhere fun (they get to pick).

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        100% correct. To each her own, every family is different, and all of that.
        We always at least did cake/family party. Most often as they aged through elementary & middle school, if they wanted to have a party somewhere ( the pool at the Y, roller skating, sport park, et cetera) we did it with four to six friends. Occasionally we would do a family ski trip (all early spring birthdays). Only once did I do something more elaborate for our eldest/our only daughter and it was somewhat frantic. Interestingly ( or maybe not!), she did not request something of similar proportions in subsequent years. For which, by the way, I was very thankful😅 !

      • Tara says:

        We have friends who put off having a real birthday party until their daughter asked for one. They’re a kind of a no-nonsense family, and they tend to take trips and host big beach parties for lots of friends instead of focusing so much on bdays, anniversaries, et al. Overall, their whole family seems happy and well-adjusted. They’re fairly well off, and I think that may be due in some part to their selective minimalism.

        I wish I had that confidence and discipline, in a way. We’ve always done bday parties of some sort for our little guy. And I realize the early ones were as much for my memories and ego as they were for him. Still, I think he’ll enjoy pictures of them, as well as the memories from later bday parties.

    • ab says:

      I’m sure she still celebrates their birthdays, she’s just not a party person. My parents weren’t big on parties either, and it wasn’t a big deal. I was born on Thanksgiving so my birthday always fell at an awkward time for parties during my grade school years. We always had birthday cake as part of our dessert on Thanksgiving, and I would get a card with $10 from any aunts or uncles who forgot about my birthday until they showed up for dinner. lol.

      My husband and I haven’t thrown any parties for our kid yet (she’ll be 4 this summer). If we happen to be visiting my hometown in the summer we do a joint party/family bbq for my kid and her two cousins who have birthdays in the same week, but that’s about it.

      • WTW says:

        @ab I was born on Thanksgiving, too. I never had huge blowouts, but that’s probably because people didn’t do that so much in the 80s when I was a little kid. I did have a few birthday parties with friends and at Chuck E. Cheese, but I had plenty of parties with just family as well. It was fine. The funny thing is that I do remember my first birthday party with a group of friends. I was 3 years old, and my mother had to explain to me what birthdays were. I was glad to have people over, but I didn’t know what all the fuss was about.
        Anyway, I agree with Megan for the most part and think it’s weird when people have lavish parties for babies and toddlers. I think these parties are more for the parents than the kids.

      • ab says:

        @WTW I also grew up in the 80s/90s (I was born in ’80), so we might be birthday twins or at least close! chuck e. cheese was definitely the hot spot for birthday parties, though I remember hating it even when I was a kid. we also had a local skating rink that was a hit on the bday circuit.

    • mlle says:

      wow, super harsh on both counts, I’d say. If they’re young, they won’t remember not having a party. And if you read the quote, it says ‘we don’t do BIG birthday parties’. They might still celebrate w/ family and friends. Seems like an unusual thing to be driven crazy by. Different strokes, etc.

      Also, accidental pregnancies can happen to anyone – no birth control method is 100% effective. See the NYT’s 2014 article, ‘how likely is it that birth control can let you down?’

      #TeamFox on this on, tbh.

      • Jayna says:

        The difference is she has said all three weren’t planned. I find it odd when she had the other two, she said in an interview neither pregnancy was planned. Now a third pregnancy she has to make clear wasn’t planned either. A little more than a one-time oopsie or birth control failing.

      • Diana says:

        Honestly I can’t believe I agree with her completely about something. My parents were like this, and we grew out just fine, for the most part lol. Just a cake, couple of friends/cousins and a bit music…

      • Magnoliarose says:

        The oops pregnancy is ridiculous. 3 times? Nope.

      • Katie says:

        Three surprise pregnancies isn’t shocking. I’m the oldest of 5 and both my younger brothers (#2 and #3) and I were conceived while my mother was on birth control. The pill for me, diaphragm for number two, pill for number three. My sisters (numbers 4 and 5) were the only pregnancy where they tried to get pregnant. It worked a little too well and she ended up with twins.

        Kids happen. It’s not always at the greatest time, but it’s not some sort of conspiracy either. Birth control isn’t 100%.

      • Ange says:

        Funny how I and all my childfree friends have managed to successfully avoid pregnancy then. If you really don’t want it to happen you will ensure all necessary steps are taken to avoid it. I’m not saying it NEVER happens in the CF community but certainly it’s a minuscule percentage compared to the rest of society.

    • Kate says:

      We never had lavish birthday parties as kids but we always had a birthday celebration and those are some of my favorite memories. One year my parents took me a my best friend to Chattanooga to spend the night at the Choo Choo hotel and we got to sleep in a train car. That was well over 20 years ago and I remember every detail.
      I understand not wanting to throw the enormous out of control party but celebrate your children’s birthdays! They’re special.

      • Bridget says:

        Hey older kid is 3. It’s not like she’s telling a 10 year old they’re not going to celebrate their birthday.

      • dAsh says:

        This. My first memory of my birthday is when I was 3 and I had this really cute birthday cake that had a bridge and a castle. I had a balloon tied to my wrist the enire party and I was wearing a cute dress. It still makes me smile when I think about it. I was 3, I don’t think I asked my parents to throw me a party, (lol) but I’m glad they did. It’s one of my favorite childhood memories.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        Balloon tied to your wrist! What an adorably sweet image. Really made me smile. 😊

    • carie says:

      I am the same way as her. We did celebrate my kids birthdays when they were younger, but just a cake and presents at dinner. I find it ridiculous when people have these huge blow out partys for a young child and invite everyone they know. We were invited to a party last weekend, and I didn’t even know the kids name-or had I met him. My husband casually knows the father through a sporting event.
      It makes me wonder if they are just looking for a gift.
      My older children (10 and 8) have had birthday parties and invited friends from class. We just had a casual party at our home, played games etc.
      Its not that we are lame parents, and don’t like to have fun—we have fun all the time, we just don’t feel the need to have extravagant parties.

      • kcarp says:

        I think when people invite tons of people like that it is a status thing. Look how many friends I have, look how popular we are, we are the coolest most special family in the world etc.

      • Mgsota says:

        I have two girls, both born in March, eight years apart. My first daughter had birthday parties every year until I realized it was crazy inviting 20 kids to a dang party every year. My second daughter got shafted a little because now we only do a big party once in a while (she’s had one big party when she turned 5.) We still celebrate of course with our family, maybe 1 or two friends.

    • shewolf says:

      Yeah she should totally spend hundreds on having the kid’s entire class come to a party at some bonkers kid gym… just. like. everyone.else. And if she doesn’t, she’s depriving them and being mean.

    • CrazyDaisy says:

      Honestly I agree with Ms.Fox on this (shocking lol). I had maybe 2 actual birthday parties growing up, one as a toddler and one in elementary school. I found the one I remember to be awkward and not fun, so I just stuck with the usual family celebration from then on: mom baked a cake a cake, if it was a school day I ate a slice before I went to school with a big glass of chocolate milk, and opened some presents later on. Surprise, I turned out fine and don’t feel like I missed out. I will probably stick with a similar formula with my kid, unless he asks for a party with his friends.

    • Wren says:

      And? I had exactly 4 birthday parties by the age of 18 and I’m not sad about it. The last two were ones I planned myself in high school because sleepovers are fun. We’re not big party people in my family; it’s okay to celebrate things quietly. It is just a day. I still have fond memories of my birthdays, on which I got a few presents, could have my favorite thing for dinner and we ate cake. My grandmother would often visit then too so birthdays were more about family than parties. I don’t feel deprived.

      • KB says:

        Maybe this is off base, but I feel like maybe the kids who had huge parties every year are the same special snowflakes that have “birthday weeks” as adults with huge parties to celebrate themselves and still be the center of attention. Real Housewives types. Not all obviously, but there is a difference between celebration and indulgence. And let’s not forget the children’s parties Megan is referring to are like Hollywood Hills birthday parties, tens of thousands of dollars spent for a two year old’s birthday. Probably way more extravagant than any of us have ever experienced.

    • Audrey says:

      Yeah it seems trendy now to reject most holidays too. Like no Christmas or at least excluding Santa and stuff. Cause they don’t want to lie to their kids or don’t like materialism of holidays

      It takes a lot of magic away, in my opinion. Too much pressure on kids to grow up fast

      • Nancy says:

        Audrey, you are the voice of reason. My kids believed in Santa Claus and we celebrate their birthdays, or any day for that matter. I hope my daughter will carry on the traditions when it’s her turn…..she’s 14 and it seems like I was just changing her diapers. I’ve posted too many times on this subject but it hit me for some reason. Hormonal…

      • Wren says:

        There’s a big difference between rejecting a holiday and having a small, quiet celebration. Not having big birthday parties is hardly taking the magic out of childhood. She never said they completely ignored the kids birthdays. They probably have a little thing at home with maybe a special dessert or something. That’s all you need, really.

        Same with holidays. Some people may reject them but there’s plenty who don’t want to make a big fuss about it and have something simpler instead. Nothing wrong with that. Maybe they don’t want the stress that seems inherent in the holiday season, which to me robs the magic out of it far more than not encouraging your kids to believe in fat home invader wearing a red suit ever could.

      • JWQ says:

        You are talking like believing in Santa Claus is the only thing that keeps children from becoming raging sociopaths.
        And let’ s not even talk about the fact that just because something is popular wherever you live, it doesn’ t mean that the rest of the World is forced to have the same obsession on it.
        I was recently pitied and basically told that I had something wrong (and not in jest) by a couple of american acquaintances who just couldn’ t contemplate the idea that there are countries in the World that don’ t celebrate Thanksgiving and Halloween. Like genuinely horrified that I was abused that way as a child (yes, they used that word, again, not in jest).

        I may be a bit cynical, but I can assure you that I turned out allright even without doing Trick or Treat, eating the equivalent of my body weight in turkey in one day or leaving cookies and milk in my (chimney-free) dining room.

    • colleen says:

      Well, it’s not like they can’t afford to support their children, so I don’t see the issue.

      • Sabrine says:

        Yeah, she’ll just have four mouths to feed, instead of three. I guess she can afford it as long as those Ninja Turtle sequels keep being made.

  2. ell says:

    what’s wrong with a man being a stay at home dad and a woman being the breadwinner?

    they’re weird these two though. they seem to still get along since they’re always papped hanging out, they made another baby, and still they want to divorce.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I agree that there’s nothing wrong with it! I think if anything though, Megan’s kids are going to be MORE embarrassed when they find out about her career, not “still embarrassed.”

    • byland says:

      Absolutely nothing wrong with it, as long as the stay at home day doesn’t resent the breadwinner mom. Not saying that’s what happened here, but it does happen. Both parties have to be happy with the arrangement. No relationship works if they’re not, not just this scenario.

      As far as these two, from what I’ve read they still live in the same house with both their boys. Seems more like a surprise baby to me. They’ve been together for years, share children, and endless memories. I can see how it can happen when you’re split up, but still in close quarters.

    • Kate says:

      I see nothing wrong with the person with higher earning potential being the “breadwinner”. I have a friend who is an attorney; she makes far more than her husband and works longer hours. I have another friend whose husband wanted to stay home with their baby because he never thought he would be able to have a family due to health issues. Everyone is different and this is an extremely personal choice. We never know the reasons for people’s choices.

    • K says:

      Nothing wrong with it. If this is the choice that they feel is right for their family and they can afford it then I think it’s great.

      Honestly only the people in a family know what is best for a family and it’s really no ones business or place to judge.

      As for the article I think it was more in reference to the alleged rumors of BAG wanting Megan to be a stepford wife then anything.

    • Bridget says:

      Perhaps you should ask BAG that, as reportedly he’s the one with a lot of issues with having his wife be the main breadwinner.

      • ell says:

        is he though? to me it seems more like rumours, it’s not like he even tries to get jobs, and clearly one of them has to work. some of the gossip around their split was really odd as well, like describing megan on the rise and career oriented lol, like when, 10 years ago?

      • Snowflake says:

        @ ell
        Yeah idk that I buy all the rumors about him being controlling, not happy about her career, etc. It might be true, but at the same time, I think a lot of these assumptions are made because he is older than her and people assume she’s meek. And it started from there. There is no concrete proof or examples, just gossip.

      • qwerty says:

        Even before the kids there were rumours and blinds about him being controlling (abusive even) towards her. Plus when she would still get papped all the time the body language was way off. He’d always, always grab her hand and lead the way to be in front of the cameras even though they were obviously there because of her.

        Let’s also not forget that he started dating her when she was a teenager and he was a grown ass man. She was a no-name aspiring actress and he was the star. Something tell me he was more comfortable with their dynamics back then.

    • Starkiller says:

      There’s nothing wrong with it, nor did anyone imply or say directly that there was. It’s their relationship in general that leaves a bad taste in some folks’ mouths.

  3. Snowpea says:

    Awww good luck to her. Life is a crap shoot – who knows how it’s gunna play out? I rate foxy Fox…she is an intelligent, measured, interesting woman despite all that crazy plastic surgery.

  4. Jegede says:

    Good luck to them.

    The papers/blogs are reeling about missing this one.

    God help any celeb who steps out now after having a big breakfast!!!

  5. Amanduh says:

    Did I just read “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of the Penis Faces”?! lol Umm…ticket for one please :)

  6. Kelly says:

    I don’t understand why she is with BAG. There is nothing wrong with a stay at home dad but it’s been made clear he doesn’t like that she is the big star in that relationship. He hates that he is considered a nobody while her fame rose, when she was way more popular. He wants her stuck at home being pregnant but at the same time supporting his pathetic butt. I feel bad for her.

    • Betti says:

      I don’t get it either – there have been rumours for years about their dysfunctional relationship and he is a known douche. He treated his ex Vanessa Marcil very very badly even after they split, he tried to sue her for money.

      They got together when she was a teenager so he’s the only serious relationship that she’s ever been in. My niece was in one like that, she was too scared to leave him even thou he was another douche. She eventually dumped him when he went too far and she saw the light but it can sometimes take a long time for the sun to shine in.

      He may not like that her career is better than his but that won’t stop him from happily living off her earning – not thats an issue but he’s clearly one of those guys who has to be in control.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      He’s probably enjoying all the talk/gossip the pregnancy is generating. Finally people talk about him even if he has to share the spotlight again with Megan, dammit Megan he just wants to be the most famous one for once. Looks like a douche, talks like a douche, & that usually means he’s a douche.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      He’s an insecure fool and likes her money and being associated with her but not that she’s the star. There have been stories about his jealousy and crazy behavior. Douche isn’t even the half of it.
      I didn’t think he would go gently into the night and what better way to keep her locked down? Yes I know she is responsible for her own actions but she was so young when they got together.
      Sigh. She is wasting her prime career jockeying years on David Silver.

      I watched 90210 after it ended and don’t get the love.

  7. LookyLoo says:

    Umm, kids do ask for what they want. Shrilly and at extremely high decibels. :-) . Once they start going to other kids’ parties, they’ll ask. On my kid’s birthday, we dedicate a day entirely to him. It makes him feel loved and that it’s not “just another day.”

  8. tracking says:

    Now she’s stuck with him for a while longer (sorry, I don’t have a positive impression of him at all, seems very controlling).

  9. vanessa says:

    I knew it ! i said yesterday that brian was most likely the father of her kid, afterall they were together for 11 years and still leaving under the same roof, and feelings just don’t fade like that. i highly even doubt these two will even divorce at this point.
    I know she will criticized but hey he is still her husband, they are still leaving together and obviously still acting like a husband and wife, plus none of her kids were planned, If she didn’t want this one she could have terminated her pregnancy but she didn’t, she is a grown up and she knows what she doing.

    • Erinn says:

      She’s a grownup, but I really wouldn’t go as far as to say she knows what she’s doing. There’s no magical age where you just know what you’re doing – and Megan really isn’t a very bright celeb.

      While I don’t blame her for keeping the baby- you’d think that after 2 surprise babies, while you’re separated/attempting to divorce your baby daddy you’d at least take precautions. It’s kind of a messy situation to bring another kid into – and if she had solid reasons for divorcing – staying together for the kids is just a complete mess that she clearly has no problem subjecting them to.

    • qwerty says:

      TMZ says that if she halts the divorce proceedings, half of everything she’s earned since their separation will go to BAG in case she changes her mind down the road (and she will). That means her Ninja Turtles salary, among probably some other things.

  10. Naya says:

    I didnt have birthday parties and I emerged completely unscarred, imagine that. Those children are already assured a very privileged 18 years, the best thing a mother can do in these circumstances is teach them the difference between necessity and self-indulgence as early as possible. I wholly approve.

    • tracking says:

      I live in an area where the bday parties are always big, expensive events. I believe this does children no favors and try not to buy into it.

      • Insomniac says:

        Yeah … People can do what they want with their money and their decisions, of course, but I don’t get the people around here throwing these outlandish parties for one year olds. I always suppose it’s meant to impress other parents.

      • Jayna says:

        Like those Tori Spelling parties. I remember the one she had for a toddler, and it was massive and cost probably ten thousand dollars. So silly.

      • byland says:

        I live in an area quite like that, too, Tracking. A neighbor spent ten grand on their six-year-old’s birthday party last year. My jaw dropped and I spent the entire time thinking about how that party could have benefited so many worthwile causes and instead there I was: surrounded by animal handlers for the “exotic petting zoo.”

        For my son’s birthday in February I filled the entire ceiling of the family room with bright blue balloons and set up art tables and a few large inflatable pools as makeshift ball pits in the backyard. (We live in Texas, so thankfully it was a warm enough day for it.) Homemade cupcakes, a snack table with easy options for parents and kids, iTunes playlist. Done.

      • qwerty says:

        Poor animals. They’re so scared of crowds of kids. Petting zoos are evil.

    • Shijel says:

      I….. like that? She seems to be shaping up to be a fairly decent parent from what I can see? I liked celebrating birthdays, though it tapered off at age 6 because I no longer particularly cared about birthdays, and I still don’t. I can call up my friends and spend time with them whenever we want. I like it that my parents never threw parties for me. If I wanted a get-together, I asked my parents and then I could invite a bunch of friends over. I’m not scarred either.

      I’m almost a quarter of a century old now and for the past 7 years, my birthday has been a quiet day of reflection. I get my single 5:30AM cider, lounge, and just enjoy the quiet, and the fact that I’m still here, and when friends want to come over, they always can, if not, that’s great too. I think Megan is doing good by her kids by not hosting huge parties unless kids ask for it.

    • byland says:

      Oops, wrong place. Sorry.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      We just have family get togethers for the first few years but do have parties when they start school. Some of their friends have ridiculously expensive parties that I think border on obscene. Then the competition begins and it’s stupid.
      Growing up we had nice parties but nothing over the top. My brother’s wife is insane with her parties. My grandmother, ever the blunt one, shakes her head and let’s everyone know she thinks it’s ridiculous. I thought she would faint when he gave my niece a car no 16 year old has any business driving. She’s a smart girl and earns excellent grades but still.

      I have no issue with what Megan is doing. She’s in Hollywood she’s seen the obnoxious parties. I actually applaud her for it.

  11. Heather Benson says:

    Rise of the Penis-Faces!!

    She looks older than 30. Just further proof that when you jack your face up in your 20s, it works against you.

    In regards to the party, when she says “big birthday parties”, I’m wondering if she’s referring to the Hollywood kind that hire an entire circus for three hours. Those are over the top. Maybe she’s just doing something with her family a few kids.

  13. paolanqar says:

    I Hate her for ruining her beautiful face. She was breathtakingly beautiful. Now she looks like a washed up celebrity with an empty schedule and a frozen face.

    ‘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.’
    Yeah.. Just repeat it on your head and keep saying it to your surgeon.

    • Bridget says:

      She’s looking better these days at least. Did you ever happen to catch Friends With Kids? Her frozen face was distracting every time she was on screen.

  14. Zip says:

    Three unplanned children. She either has not heard of contraception or is simply too stupid to use it.

    • SilkyMalice says:

      That’s what I got out of it too. Poor kids, is all I’ve got to say.

    • Supposedtobeworking says:

      My doctor had 2 of her 3 pregnancies unplanned. Birth control isn’t a for sure for everyone.

    • Deedee says:

      Unplanned does not necessarily mean unwanted. It could mean if it happens, it happens.

  15. Jayna says:

    So three children “not planned.” She used the same terminology about the first two. How bizarre. The guy was asking for spousal support in the divorce and I imagine also child support, and she goes and gets pregnant again by him. All I would be thinking is about how much higher that number will go as the breadwinner if or when we divorce.

    As far as birthdays, I understand her. I don’t get all these lavish birthday parties for little ones that don’t even understand. It’s all about the parents often. I grew up without big birthday parties and loved my little birthday celebrations with family or having a few kids over for sleepovers. Nowadays I hate how it’s become not just a sweet birthday party age appropriate as far as what it entails but more how to keep up with the Jonses and impress and all this pressure many feel to impress or compete.

    I think once they are old enough and want birthday parties it shouldn’t be a blowout each year but mix it up. One year take your child and best friend over to an amusement park or just your family, the next year maybe a birthday party for your child, not some huge party to impress the adults and often feels like a party for adults.

    I find simple, fun things can make a great party for kids, who basically just love running around and playing and I enjoy setting up lots of games that I remember from my childhood. My sister is different and likes a birthday party each year for her children, but it really is just a lot of fun activities since she lives on a lake and makes it a pool party but fun games like we grew up with, and for the older kids more boat related activities, pulling the kids on big floats, etc., and pool games.

    I love doing little parties for my son with balloons and cake and all. He’s only 2 so we haven’t done the invite the whole class thing yet. But some of the birthday parties I’ve been to for toddlers have been on the same level as a wedding, with open bar and all for the adults, dj, etc. To me that’s a little much.

    • Annika says:

      Very true.
      My hubby, an only child, grew up having lavish birthday parties. The pictures of those parties are hilarious b/c it was basically an excuse for his parents’ & their friends to get wasted. My favorite pic is one of him & his 5 yr old cousin playing with power tools while the adults were passed out on the patio. The picture was taken by their next door neighbor. ;-)

    • Magnoliarose says:

      It’s cute to have little cupcakes and family time when they are tiny. My daughter’s first was when we were staying in a hotel. My ex didn’t want to miss it so we came. Just the three of us but wore hats and had a cake. I love the pictures and video. My daughter likes looking at them and ask questions and giggle about herself.
      Sweet memories. Enjoy.

  17. Mar says:

    I like what she is saying- I am a mother of an 8 year old and to be honest I did the birthday thing for a while and for number 9′im not doing a party. I don’t think every year it’s necessary to spend 500$ on a party. I think people tend to value things that should be luxuries and done in moderation.
    I also like how private she is. You really don’t hear much about her, she’s not a fame whore like the rest of the girls in her town

  18. Annika says:

    I don’t get the big birthday party thing, either. My son, now 17 months, can have bigger parties when he’s older. Like old enough to talk about what he’d like for a theme, who he’d invite, etc.
    But I probably feel that way b/c I never had a an official party growing up either. I grew up in a big family so there wasn’t time or money for a big extravaganza. Mom always made our favorite dessert/treats & would tell us about the day we were born. I always loved hearing about that, no matter how many times I heard her tell it.

    • tracking says:

      My kids love that, too. I take them a little breakfast treat as they’re waking up and we talk about their birth story and cuddle. I think they’ll remember that more than any pricey parties.

  19. frivolity says:

    I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again – three unplanned pregnancies reeks of abusive relationship, especially given all the rumors about BAG and his controlling her. I’ve seen the same exact pattern with a family member, unfortunately. If true, I hope she finds a way to get help.

    • Zip says:

      How can this happen? Does he control the birth control? Does he temper with the pill? The woman can always wear a UID and she’d be fine. Or does the man pressure a woman to have unprotected sex?

      • GingerCrunch says:

        Ugh, the last one. This is the scenario I will have in my head about them.

      • Magnoliarose says:

        Zip, when you start a relationship that is unbalanced from the start, this is the risk. She was very young and he’s 12 years older and knew more about life and Hollywood than she did.
        If you are in a controlling relationship it can be like Stockholm Syndrome. The control is very real.
        He could have easily manipulated the situation with the right approach. Not even sneakily either. If that is the case. Oops makes no sense three times.
        Babies tether you to someone for a long time and your love for your child can keep you around longer than is healthy. It’s a classic move.
        Hopefully it’s all conjecture but I don’t think so.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      My take too. I hope she can break away. I really do and feel bad for her.

    • Jayna says:

      You have to be kidding? She was with him for many years, like six years, and never got pregnant. She starts having “unplanned” pregnancies after marriage and you are blamming him and calling it abusive? LOL That’s overreaching.

      • ell says:

        yeah, i mean maybe it’s true but i wonder where does op get that from. women are also responsible for contraception, and there are ways she could avoid getting pregnant if she wanted to, like getting those shots that lasts several years. i think people are projecting too much.

    • Snowflake says:

      Wow, kind of unfair to paint this guy with the abusive label. Are there police reports of documented cases of domestic abuse? It’s starting to bother me, how everyone assumes he’s an abuser based off of rumors.

  20. NeoCleo says:

    I think her attitude is refreshingly no-nonsense. There’s enough newness and stress (all good) associated with very young children. Who needs the extra stress?

  21. MrsBPitt says:

    Will Arnett’s face===”Dear God, it’s not mine, people” lol

  22. lucy2 says:

    I don’t understand their relationship. Hopefully it’s all OK and happy for the kids, but it has to be a little confusing.

  23. Chelly says:

    I kind of agree w her on the whole lavish bday parties when theyre young. They really wont remember & it drives me crazy when parents invite me to their child(s) 1st birthday extravaganza (nit get together) The baby can barely walk let alone really know anything thats happening. Once they get the concept of celebrations, keeping it low key (imo) is best

  24. Spike says:

    As Frivolity noted there are numerous stories about BAG being an epic control freak. She was finally getting out, but you don’t continue to live under the same roof with someone like him.
    Now he’s got her where he wants her. The cycle has never really ended. It’s sad for her, but damaging for her sons. They see his attitude and actions as a model for how to be a man and how to treat women.

  25. Jen43 says:

    I feel bad that everyone was speculating about the father. She did file for divorce, but she is still living with BAG and still married to him. She must really like babies and being pregnant. In her 30′s she is going to wonder what the hell her 20′s were about. Eventually, she will get that divorce.

  26. Kellyrae says:

    My sister in law is like this, a 30 year old woman with 4+ ‘unplanned’ pregnancies… I don’t understand why she doesn’t get it yet.

  27. Colette says:

    I agree with her about these big birthday parties for toddlers.Pointless

  28. me says:

    Isn’t the divorce still on though? At least that’s what’s being reported. So all she really did is allow BAG more child support now with a third child !

    Also, I only had a handful of birthday parties as a kid, and they were special. I don’t think you need to have a big party every single year. My niece does that. Every year it’s a big thing, a new theme. At this point, she’s over it and she’s not even 10 yet.

  29. HoustonGrl says:

    Even as a child, I never really enjoyed birthday parties, especially my own. I was kind of shy and found it incredibly awkward.

  30. iheartgossip says:

    They are the perfect couple and have no business splitting up. Both are as bad as the other. Perfect match!

  31. Keaton says:

    She’s always struck me as such a flake. Someone who doesn’t know what she doesn’t know but has strong opinions anyway. Isn’t her favorite TV show Ancient Aliens? SMDH. As far as her having 3 unplanned pregnancies. Well I do side-eye it a little bit but it sounds like the kids are being raised by loving parents so that’s good. Maybe she and BAG just have a weird dynamic that only works for them.

  32. racer says:

    Their relationship is disturbing.

  33. Andrea says:

    I am an only child and only had a big birthday at age 5 in a restaurant (I barely remember it but have seen pictures). I have tried to gather a lot of my friends together as an adult and made a big deal about my birthday because of this. Since I moved to Canada a few years ago, I have craved a big birthday again (I don’t have any close friends up here). I always felt a touch deprived compared to friends growing up and their birthdays.

    • Andrea says:

      I have heard BAG is bad news for years. It makes me wonder how much low self esteem Megan has. Unbelieveable he sued for money against Vanessa Marcil and her.
