Aishwarya Rai, dubbed the most beautiful woman in the world by much of the media, has had more rumors of pregnancy swirling around her since marrying her husband Abhishek Bachchan in 2007 than Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore combined.
The speculation gets old, Bachchan told GQ magazine.
"I feel these are blessings of God, and it should just happen as and when. You know, whenever it’s meant to be. I am against the whole thing of 'Let’s plan it,' you know, 'We’re trying for a baby.' I find that a bit weird.”
Indeed. Why should they tell the world they are trying? And moreover, why does the world care?
"Trying" for a baby is a deeply personal thing. I told people I was trying, but this is because I have a huge mouth and had we had trouble conceiving, I may have thought better of it the second time.
It's a personal decision. I will never understand how certain stars bring that out in us. Maybe it's that she's stunning (is she ever) and we want to see what their child would look like. Or maybe it's that she's older at 37 and people want her to get cracking.
Either way, they are under no obligation to reveal that they're trying, and once she's pregnant, they aren't under any obligation to tell us (see Mariah Carey).
Would their baby be stunning? Yes. Can I wait until they announce it to start reporting it? Absolutely.
Let's face it: "trying for a baby" basically says to the world, "We are having a lot of sex right now and plan to announce a pregnancy sometime soon. If we don't, you can assume we're sad." Who would want to reveal that to the world?
I get it.
Do you? Did you tell people you were "trying"?
