5 Back-To-Back Babies in Hollywood
They enjoyed pregnancy so much, they did it again – quickly!
We’re taking a look at Hollywood’s back-to-back baby boom. From Megan Fox, to Britney Spears, to Jessica Simpson, let’s see which star moms are making their kids close in age.
◦ Megan Fox:
Handsome couple Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green welcomed their first child, son Noah, on September 27, 2012.
Less than one year later (in August 2013), they announced their second pregnancy.
Brian recently admitted he’s not sure how they’ll manage juggling a toddler, a new baby, and his job on Anger Management.
“We honestly have no idea and we discuss it daily and think, ‘How are we going to do this?’” he admitted. “I think we’ll see when it happens. People do it all the time.”
But it sounds like his boss, Charlie Sheen, is more than understanding.
“I couldn’t really ask for a better situation than that,” Brian, also dad to 11-year-old son Kassius, said. “[Charlie’s] one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met and worked with.”
◦ Britney Spears:
Oops, she did it again!
Pop superstar Britney Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline welcomed their two sons one year apart — almost to the day.
The couple’s firstborn son, Sean Preston, was born on September 14, 2005, and their second son, Jayden James, arrived on September 12, 2006.
Reportedly, Britney wanted to schedule her second C-section birth to coincide with Sean Preston’s birthday, but her then-husband persuaded her to move the date back a couple days.
◦ Tori Spelling:
Currently, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have two 1-year-olds — and they’re not twins!
One month after their third child, daughter Hattie, was born, Tori got the unexpected news that she was pregnant for the fourth time.
“The new baby was clearly unplanned but I am thrilled and I would have lots of babies if I could, I love being a mom,” Tori said at the time of her fourth pregnancy.
“All my friends keep asking me [if it was planned] and I’m like, ‘Seriously? Hattie was one month old. Do you think it was planned?’” she continued. “I was up all night with feedings.”
“The doctor said, ‘Wait six weeks [to have sex],’ and Dean was like, ‘They tell everyone that.’ We didn’t wait that long with Stella or Liam,” Tori added. “I was like, ‘Well, I don’t want him to think that the sex is going downhill,’ so now we’re on baby No. 4.”
Son Finn arrived on August 30, 2012, while Hattie was born on October 10, 2011.
◦ Jessica Simpson:
Just seven months after Jessica Simpson welcomed her first child, daughter Maxwell, in May 2012, she and fiancé Eric Johnson confirmed that baby No. 2 was on the way.
“Pregnancy is a lot,” Jessica recently shared. “It was hard to do two so close together. I have this huge sense of accomplishment, and I feel in my heart that I’m done. But obviously, accidents do happen!”
Son Ace Knute was born on June 30, 2013, and Maxwell arrived on May 1, 2012.
◦ Naomi Watts:
Naomi Watts and her partner Liev Schreiber welcomed their two sons within 17 months of each other.
The couple’s first son, Alexander “Sasha” Pete, was born on July 25, 2007, and their second son, Samuel “Kai,” arrived on December 13, 2008.
“I suppose I might consider having another child — if someone could guarantee me it would be a girl,” Naomi said.
“Two boys can be a lot to handle and sometimes you think it would be easier with two girls playing with their tea sets and dolls,” she added. “But Liev loves having two boys.”
