Can you believe it's been a year since Blue Ivy Carter made her way into the world? Apparently her famous parents can't either. Word has it Beyonce's sonogram will be revealed in an upcoming HBO documentary, throwing us back into the kind of celebrity pregnancy hoop-la we haven't seen since, um, well, since a week or two ago when Kanye West dropped his "Kim's having my baby news."
But enough about Kimye! Beyonce certainly wouldn't want to be sharing the spotlight with a Kardashian right now. She's got an amorphous black and white blob to show off because everyone needs to see that, right? I said, right?
What? You don't actually have an interest in seeing Beyonce's sonogram? Or anyone's sonogram for that matter?
Maybe Beyonce is just trying to put all those "she was never really pregnant" rumors to rest with this, but there's gotta be a better way!
I may be in the minority here, but in my not-so-humble opinion, the "let's show off the sonogram" trend has earned its rightful spot in the "parenting TMI" annals, and no amount of celebrity on Beyonce's part excuses her from this overshare. Actually, come to think of it, this one may be even worse than most. She doesn't don't need to show off proof that you're having a baby. She and Jay-Z actually HAVE a baby; we've seen her! She's cute ... a heckuva lot cuter than those alien-looking sonogram pictures.
Actually, it's the alien part that really makes the sonogram trend so confusing to me. I get that people want to share their big news, and I'm happy for people who announce they're expecting.
But what are you trying to tell people? That your kid-to-be looks like something out of a freaky Sigourney Weaver flick?
Here's hoping this is one trend that celebrities won't get too attached to.
Do you want to see Beyonce's sonogram? Scratch that; do you want to see anyone's sonogram?
