Did a Celebrity Choose Adoption?

celebrity gives baby up for adoptionIn an oddly disturbing blind item, I've found myself a tad obsessed about finding out which celebrity allegedly gave her baby up for adoption two years ago. The empathetic side of me says it's nobody's damn business. But the curious side is taking this information and running with it, since the description of the actress and her famous leading man is so specific. 

Also, I can't help but think there are very few great role models out there for adoption. Aside from the fictional Juno and Glee teen adoptions, it's not a Hollywood "thing." But maybe it should be. If someone is anti-abortion to the point of carrying a baby for nine months then giving her up, that's a strong person. Perhaps she should be glorified, especially by those in the pro-life camp. My (pro-choice) hat would certainly be off to any woman who had the inner strength to do this, since I know I wouldn't have been able to do the same.

So who is this mystery starlet?

The description of the couple goes like so:

About two years ago these two stars broke up and the public went nuts. The actress dropped off the radar for a while. What we didn't know was that she was carrying his baby and the pregnancy was the reason for the split. If we understand our source correctly, neither wanted a baby but she didn't believe in abortion. The stress of the situation was too big a strain on their relationship and so they split. She had her baby quietly and gave it up for adoption with no one the wiser.

Looking at the big splits of 2009, these three couples caused the biggest tidal waves:

Rihanna and Chris Brown

While I certainly hope it wasn't a pregnancy that caused this volatile split, it would explain Rihanna's absence. It would also be incredibly smart of her to not try and raise a baby with someone who was physically violent.

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal

This one was a little bit of a shocker because the adorable couple did seem perfect together. And we know Reese is fertile. Additional evidence, Witherspoon only had one movie out in 2010, How Do You Know.

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer

Of course if you mention "baby," you have to mention Jennifer Aniston. The couple split in 2009, but as we've seen, Mayer is a super douchebag, so my money is on that being the reason rather than a mystery pregnancy. Plus, Aniston had a string of films released since, so it would have been incredibly difficult to hide a pregnancy.

Do you think celebrities should be public about personal matters with political fallout?
