So it's been confirmed, folks. One Direction singer Harry Styles, 19, and Rod Stewart's daughter Kimberly, 33, really are the latest hot Hollywood couple. And by "confirmed," of course, we mean by "sources." That's right. A source confirmed to E! News that Harry and Kimberly are indeed hot and heavy and "very happy" together.
We're all pondering how ex Taylor Swift is taking the news. However, what I'm thinking, as a mom looking in, is how Kimberly, mom to 20-month-old Delilah Genoveva (whose dad is actor Benicio del Toro) is: Yo Kimberly, do you really need another KID right now? I mean, a 19-year-old boy -- aren't they actually more work than a toddler? What the hell is she thinking?
I've been out of the dating scene for ions, but I can still remember dating 19-year-old boys and that was way before I ever knew the tough stuff of parenthood. Generally speaking, teen-aged boys are incapable of cleaning up after themselves, helpless in matters of adult life and real emotional connection, and throw a lot of weird fits about stupid crap. To be clear, teen-aged girls are only mildly better, but a teen-aged boy, especially one who has not been fast-tracked into adulthood by becoming a dad himself, has got to be the worst kind of partner for a young mom.
Odds are Kimberly is still knee-deep in diapers and sippy cups and whining and temper tantrums and plenty of sleep-interrupted nights at home. What does she need with this kid who can't even pull up his own pants or comb his own hair? Not to mention all the screaming teenagers that come with dating Harry. Ugh. Sounds like a frickin' nightmare.
I give this new coupling one month before Mama Kimberly is like, OH HELL NO.
Let her get the starry-eyed, young famous guy ego-boost thing out of her system, and then she's going to be like: GET THE EFF OUT! AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!
Can you imagine raising a toddler and dating a teenager at the same time?
