News is swirling around the Internet today that First Lady Michelle Obma may be pregnant. While the article that caused the Internet rumor is completely false having been created by some prankster hoping to cause a viral news sensation, the thought that there might be a First Baby on the way has gotten folks excited.
Will Michelle Obama have a baby in 2011?
There hasn’t been a first baby in the White House since John F. Kennedy Jr. was born in 1960. The idea of having a toddler roaming the halls of the White House is exciting to many, but is extremely unlikely.
Michelle Obama will turn 47 later this month making any potential pregnancy high risk for both mother and child. The fact that the couple’s daughters Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9, are approaching their teenage years may also prove to be detriment to the First Couple adding to their family anytime soon. Given that the time for a reelection campaign is quickly approaching also seems unlikely that the couple would want to be either pregnant or managing the needs of an infant during an election cycle. We highly doubt we will see a First Baby this year in the White House even though a Michelle Obama baby watch would be lots of fun to follow!
