Kourtney Kardashian Is Expecting Baby #2, But Daniel Craig Is Not Impressed
Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again. Woop-de-doo. We’re with the not-at-all-impressed Daniel Craig on this one.
Sick of hearing about Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries? Yeah, us too. But lest you be so foolish as to think that you can escape the web of Kardashian conquest, an announcement has just come from another member of the family: Kourtney and her boyfriend Scott Disick are expecting baby number 2.
That’s right: There’s another Kardashian on its way that we’ll all be expected to keep up with. Not that we really needed it or anything, but there it is.
Kourtney first confirmed the news to Us Weekly in an exclusive cover story that will hit newsstands on Friday. She apparently took a pregnancy test about five weeks ago and was so elated about the positive result that she woke up Scott at 7am to tell him the results. Scott, it should be noted, is not a morning person.
Though Kourt and Scott’s first child, 2-year-old Mason Dash Disick, was kind-of-sort-of an accident, their second wasn’t. Said Scott, “It wasn’t like we weren’t trying. We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.’” No doubt we’ll be hearing much about Kourt’s pregnancy on her new web series, the oh-so-creatively named Kourtney’s Mommy Blog. Kourtney’s Mommy Blog features what she’s learned raising Mason, her “kid tips,” her parenting philosophy—and a crash course in kiddie fashion. Because of course making sure your child is dressed in designer clothing is your most important job as a parent.
These sorts of announcements from the Kardashians do seem to be rather carefully timed, don’t they? After all, Kourtney acknowledged to Us, “Now I’m nine weeks along. You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” So much for waiting out the first trimester to break the news, eh? We can’t help but think that sharing it this early was specifically geared towards drawing attention away from Kim’s divorce. In fact, it might also have been part of a plan to draw the public’s focus away from rumors that Kardashian parents Kris and Bruce Jenner are also headed for a divorce. Suspicious? Just a tad.
In other news, Daniel Craig is just as sick of the Kardashians as we are. According to the Daily Mail, he told British GQ in an interview for their upcoming January edition that he thinks the Kardashians are idiots for making careers out of their private lives. “I think there’s a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel,” he said. “It’s not about being afraid to be public with your emotions or about who you are and what you stand for. But if you sell it off, it’s gone…. You can’t buy your privacy back,” he added. He had a couple of other choice words for them, too, but I’ll let you wander over to the Daily Mail to experience them for yourselves.
Hear, hear, Daniel!
