I need to talk about John Travolta and Kelly Preston and all of the speculation around whether or not she's pregnant.
The following statement was released by the 2 married actors:
"It's impossible to keep a secret ... especially one as wonderful as this. We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family."
Am I the only one who doesn't read this to mean that she's pregnant? I know that at 47 it's not impossible for her to get pregnant, it's just not likely. I know that in this day and age, and with their high income levels, that they could easily have looked into ART (assisted reproductivetechnologies). But the wording of their announcement makes me suspect.
If she's pregnant why not simply say "Kelly's pregnant!" Their statement is so vague I don't know if she's pregnant, if they're adopting, if they hired a surrogate, or if they're getting a new dog!
If I'm wrong (and I've been wrong before - once or twice) I really hope that she is open and honest about any fertility treatments that they received. And at 47 - odds are that they would need some help.
I don't want anyone to think that I'm not happy for them and their "new addition", I totally am. Heck, I'm stocked for anyone when they get a kitten. I'm simply confused about their announcement.
What are your thoughts?
