Megan Fox hits pause on divorce: ‘Maybe a third baby will bring them closer’


Here are some photos of Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green at the pap-friendly Farmers Market over the weekend. After years of purposefully being quiet and un-scandalous, Megan is certainly bringing some drama these days, isn’t she? She debuted her surprise baby bump last week, and we’ve since learned that the baby-daddy is Megan’s estranged husband Brian Austin Green, and that the pregnancy was unplanned. We also learned that Megan and BAG are still living together, sleeping together and she’s still financially supporting him… but the divorce was, allegedly, still on. But now E! claims that Megan has hit pause on the divorce. Just like BAG planned, right?

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green aren’t getting divorced “anytime soon,” a source tells E! News exclusively. Megan, who is pregnant with their third child, and Brian have taken time since announcing their split last year to try to improve their relationship.

“Brian and Megan been working on themselves as individuals and things have gotten better between them as a couple,” the insider tells us. “They have been getting along great. They are best friends and know each other very well.”

In addition to their love, the source tells us that the couple has “a huge physical attraction that never went away…They admire each other on how they are as parents and are looking forward to bringing their third child into this world,” the source adds. “Megan’s favorite thing is being a mom and spending time with her family. They are living together not separately. Megan is feeling happy and healthy and is working out and taking it easy.”

That’s definitely the happy-family narrative that they want people to believe. But surprisingly, People Magazine did an exclusive story about what drove them apart and why Megan filed for divorce last year. A family source claims that BAG was fed up with Megan’s career and he didn’t want to play the stay-at-home dad forever. The source says:

“They had several conflicts that led to the divorce. Megan worked a lot last year, and she continues to work a lot. When she is away, Brian stays with the kids. Before they filed for divorce, they had disagreements about this situation…Megan is a great mom, but also wants to keep her great career. Brian ended up being a stay-at-home dad. He is happy to be with the kids, but also wants another life than just being a dad…Maybe a third baby will bring them closer. It seems they both think it’s worth trying a bit harder to keep their family together as it is.”

Which is just a further extension of my theory that Brian Austin Green had a diabolical plot to get Megan pregnant so she would stay home and not work for a while. But I always feel like BAG doesn’t think things through – I mean, Megan is the breadwinner. BAG hasn’t worked that much over the past five years, and while their divorce was “on,” he claimed that he had vertigo and couldn’t work. So, someone needs to make the money. Of course, it could be that the vertigo claim was all a sham, because BAG was racing cars last weekend too.

    I think the whole divorce, and baby drama was all to keep her relevant. I think her 15 minutes are up!

  2. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Well everyone knows when your relationship hits the rocks a baby added to the mix fixes everything. Poor baby not even born yet and has a full time job of keeping the parents together.

      Right! I said something similar down below. This kind of situation in particular grinds my nerves because it hits so close to home. My sister was dating a guy she knew for a month before he knocked her up. She wanted to terminate the pregnancy, but he conned her into believing that he was going to support her and be with her forever. He also explicitly told her, “If you don’t have this baby, we’re not staying together”. Major red flags, but my sister was so taken with his GQ good looks and bought into his lies about how his “company” which was “going to get off the ground soon” would allow him to make an 8-digit salary. My dad, my then-90-year-old grandmother, and I very quickly saw that he wasn’t all he was cracked up to be, but my sister has never been a good judge of character. After the baby was born, the two of them moved in with my mom, he meanwhile developed a coke habit, and took off after the kid was 2 and hasn’t been heard from since. Their son is now 5, and he and my sister still live with my mother. Apparently daddy deadbeat stole a ton of money from his most recent place of employment and is on the lam. My sister was both emotionally and physically abusive towards me throughout our childhood and into our 20s and we’re estranged, but it’s my nephew that I feel bad for. My parents, who are separated and not in the best state of health, are his primary caregivers, as my sister is still trying to relive her 20s.

    Such a moron.

    Look – I don’t care if she’s super dumb, that she’s gone through multiple faces, or mouths off to directors or what have you.

    But when you’re divorcing someone – and can’t stop hooking up with them – don’t bring a baby into the mix. If you’re in your 30′s and haven’t mastered birth control yet (there are some flukes, but most oopsies are from misuse) and you have a REASON to be divorcing your baby daddy – that’s an issue.

    If she had an actual reason to be divorcing the guy – why give that up and subject ANOTHER child to (at best) an unhappy/unstable household?

  4. pinetree13 says:

    I think he is a super controlling guy and this pregnancy was just that…to give him another chance to ‘change’. Which I’m sure they are just in the new ‘honeymoon’ phase and he’ll quickly go back to his old behavior.

    I think he’s the reason she’s gotten so much work done. In addition to being controlling, I think he nit picks her and everything she does whittling away her self-esteem.

    I don’t like this man.

  5. Jegede says:

    After her last pregnancy Fox said in one interview, for TMNT promo, that she and BAG wanted a daughter.

    I’m guessing if its another boy the divorce will be back on!

  6. swak says:

    Because a baby is the solution to fixing a marriage/relationship.

  7. Nina says:

    I used to hate her in her when she was Michael Bay’s lap dog, but I’ve slowly warmed to her over the past few years. BAG is clearly a jerk, and I feel bad for Megan if he’s deluded her into believing that this baby will “fix” their marriage. There’s a 99.9% chance it won’t, and eventually that kid’s going to find out that he/she was only conceived because dad’s an insecure misogynist douche who can’t handle mom bringing home the bacon.

  8. Anguishedcorn says:

    It’s a risky move, Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off.

  9. Eleonor says:

    Yep. Because a baby can fix a messy relationship.
    I think BAG has a problem some men have: he cannot deal with a more successfull wife, but he likes her money.

  10. Snowflake says:

    Maybe it was cheaper to keep him? But that was a dumb move, getting pregnant again

  11. Green Is Good says:

    This situation will not end well.

  12. lely says:

    I think people are projecting too much into this whole BAG/controlling thing. The guy clearly isn’t an Alpha, he seems more like a nerd.

    I actually think Megan has her own personal issues coming from a complex household and a complicated childhood. The girl is full of heavy daddy issues.
    She needs to figure her shit out, and this has nothing to do with BAG or whoever else. It’s something that lies within herself and that she needs to fix on her own.
    I think sooner or later she’s gonna get this divorce.

  13. iseepinkelefants says:

    Everytime he’s mentioned on here I imagine him poking holes in condoms with a maniacal grin. Poor Megan if this is true. He won’t let her go. And really who is he fooling? She’s the only one who can make money at this point. No one is banging down his door. She keeps him relevant, she pays the bills, latch on another kid so she doesn’t leave? And they say only women are sneaky?

  14. jinni says:

    So he doesn’t have a job and apparently can’t work, but he doesn’t want her to work. What does he think they and those kids he keeps knocking her up with are going to live on, his 90210 money? Someone has to work. Why do I get the feeling that he blames his lack of work on her not staying home so he can get work instead of on the fact that he’s just not in demand. He is gross and manipulative. I was rooting for her leave when they first announced their divorce.

  15. artpunk44 says:

    Megan divorcing him is inevitable. It’s not a question of if, but when? Years later after their 3rd baby fails to save their marriage? The more this plays out, it affirms BAG is a douche-y dunce whom I deeply dislike.

  16. lucy2 says:

    Unless they’re working through the problems that caused the divorce filing to begin with, another baby isn’t going to magically fix everything.

    If he is unhappy with his career, that’s on him. He can get in touch with his agent, go out on auditions, and find some work.

  17. Joanie says:

    Riiiiight…because having a band-aid baby always saves a marriage //sarcasm

  18. Jen Garner says:

    The whole band-aid baby thing did not work for me.

  19. Castor & Pollux says:

    So he hates being a stay at home dad…and the solution to that is adding another baby to the mix? Another little one he will have to care for? I agree with Kaiser, BAG does not think things through. But I also question how much work Megan is actually getting. Other than those awful TMNT movies, who is hiring her? She’s jacked up her face so much that she’s just kind of…strange looking now. I hate saying that, but every time I look at her I just think “Ow, your face must hurt after all of the crazy things you’ve done to it!” Her cheeks, especially. Ouch! I definitely don’t think “Wow, she’s so pretty and youthful.” The same with Gwen Stefani and Courtney Cox. I truly don’t understand that level of plastic surgery. It’s immediately obvious and it doesn’t even make them look younger! That’s what utterly boggles my mind. Sorry for the tangent, but looking at Megan automatically makes me think of excessive plastic surgery.

  20. Ang says:

    It is sicken for her to be the age she is going towards a divorce and pregnant . It’s 2016 she must be very stupid. I can’t with this type of women.

    Oh, Megan. Megan, Megan, Megan…
