Why can’t we seem to be happy for women who have one child? We may give her a year or two as a grace period, but then we start the bump watch and wonder when she’ll give her darling one a sister or brother. It’s almost considered unacceptable to stop at one.
But some moms are perfectly happy to do just that – or to let a few years pass before they start trying for another baby. Only children aren’t the miserable beings we assume they are; in fact, they’re often more confident and ambitious than their peers who grow up with siblings in the house.
So let’s applaud Kendra Wilkinson for not being all that anxious to add a new baby to the family she’s created with husband Hank Baskett and toddler son Hank Jr.
The reality star tells In Touch this week that they’d like to have their lives more settled before they consider another pregnancy.
“We are trying to figure out our careers,” she says. “We don’t know what is going on now. Why get pregnant and make it even worse, or more confusing?”
While her show Kendra is still popular on E!, the star still feels that “my 15 minutes of fame are up,” which could indicate that she’s looking to start new projects. As for Hank, recently retired from the NFL, she predicts, “He is going to become a big-time host, he is so good at hosting. You gotta watch out for him!”
The family just enjoyed a trip to Hawaii, where they tried local foods. Little Hank even got a taste of surfing!
So instead of hoping for baby news, let’s be happy that the Basketts are enjoying their beautiful son. Lots of would-be parents would give the world just to have one child.
How about some shout-outs from other parents of singletons?
