On the night of Sunday March 23, 2014, Us Magazine broke the news that actor extraordinaire Ashton Kutcher is allegedly expecting his first child with fiancee and That '70s Show co-star, Mila Kunis. Us Magazine reportedly learned the news from a friend close to the couple. From the magazine:
Another source says Kutcher is "very happy" with the news of his fiancee's pregnancy, although he still remains resolutely private about his personal life. "Ashton has been very private and cut off more than he usually is," the insider tells Us. But, the Two and a Half Men star has been chatting with a longtime pal who is newly-familiar with fatherhood.
The couple have been publicly together since 2011, two years prior to the finalization of Kutcher's divorce from seasoned actress Demi Moore.
Kunis and Kutcher join the ranks of stars like Kanye and Kim and Ciara and Future, who welcome baby bumps prior to honeymoons. Recording artists Future and Ciara just celebrated their baby boy with a baby shower, and "Kimye" recently sparked controversy as they appeared on the cover of Vogue.
Is it better to plan a wedding while pregnant or after the baby comes?
Being engaged and pregnant is nothing new. Droves of adults can trace their conceptions to dates prior to their parents' nuptials. It seems there are far more engagement pregnancies than there are forced shot-gun weddings these days. So do you plan the wedding and buy a bigger gown to make room for the baby bump? Or do you put off the nuptials and pray your pre-baby body comes back?
Being pregnant may be stressful within its own right. Planning a wedding has driven many a sane person bonkers. Combining the two may be a recipe for a mega-meltdown! So how do you decide?
You have to determine what your stress levels are and whether or not you can handle both at the same time. Putting the wedding on hold until after the baby is born may be the easier route for some to take. However, if you would prefer having the marriage before the delivery, make sure to have a trusted team around you to alleviate help alleviate the stress.
Tips on planning a wedding while pregnant
- Enlist a team who you trust to handle things.
- Create an organized wedding notebook.
- Never over do it. Rome was not built in a day...take your time.
- Vet and hire an experienced wedding planner if you can afford one. (Check out these Charlotte, NC planners.)
- Do not fret or be embarrassed over showing your baby bump. (Many of your guests were probably conceived before marriage themselves.)
- Focus on your marriage and not just the wedding day. (You want your bundle to come home to a stable family.)
- Do not sweat the small stuff.
