Why Are Celebrity Parents Always "Over The Moon" About Everything?

Everybody’s always over the moon.

In case you live under a rock, Adele just had her baby.

I clicked on the link to read the article as I do whenever I see news that any celebrity gives birth. Not because I really care about celebs and their babies, although I do like to see what they name their kids (I mean, seriously, Uma?). I read the announcements because every single time, when a celeb announces they’ve given birth, they always include the phrase “over the moon.”

He’s over the moon. She’s over the moon. We’re over the moon. They’re over the moon. Everyone is over the moon.

I defy you to find me a celeb baby announcement that doesn’t include the phrase.

Adele not only said she was over the moon when she announced her pregnancy, but now she (and everyone around her, apparently) is over the moon about the birth.

That’s great. I’m sure she’s really really happy, but have you ever heard someone in real life use the phrase “over the moon?” I first noticed the celebrity over the moon phenomenon years ago and continue to note each time one of these announcements comes along. It’s like this weird thing that celebs (or their publicists) constantly bandy about, but I have never ever heard someone use the phrase. Have you?

There. That feels better. Glad I could get that off my chest this morning. Thanks for listening.
