When Kyle Richards opened her clothing store on this past season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she said that it was finally time -- after raising four daughters -- for her to do something for herself. At 44, she'd finally left the diapers behind and was ready to move on into this next stage of life ... only now she seems to be having second thoughts. And it's all Halle Berry's fault.
She recently told Hollywood Life that four just isn't enough, and she wishes that she had gotten pregnant again right after having her daughter Portia, who is now 4. She said, "Ever since Halle Berry [became pregnant], I have to say never say never, now that she is pregnant and she is older than me, then you never know."
Let's face it, it's difficult not to look at the gorgeous, glowing Halle Berry and not want to be her. If she can get pregnant at 46, surely we all can too. Why not?
Well, there are a lot of reasons. Namely, because the chances of getting pregnant naturally at her age are slim to none. Berry has said it was a surprise, but she hasn't denied using artificial methods to get her surprise. While it's her business, it also feels like a bit of a disservice to women if she's not forthcoming about how she got pregnant.
Not to mention there are plenty of risks, and frankly, kids are exhausting. Does Kyle really want to start over at her age? Sure they have money for nannies, but Kyle seems like a pretty hands-on mom who does most things herself.
She seems confident in her abilities, however. "I work well under pressure -- I can handle that," she said. "I can drive, fax, and breastfeed all at the same time." Let's hope the cameras are rolling if she does that!
Look, Kyle and Mauricio clearly make gorgeous children, and they appear to be loving and devoted parents. So if they want another baby, I think that's great. Let's just hope they (and all of the other women out there looking at Halle Berry with pregnancy lust) really consider the implications of having another baby at this stage in the game, and don't do it just because Halle Berry is.
Do you think Kyle Richards will actually have another baby?
