Although I’m thankful that Gwyneth Paltrow is talking about anything other than how a macrobiotic diet can cure cancer and global warming or how penguin eggs and truffles are solid choice for busy, single mothers who have to pack their children’s’ lunch on the go, I’m sorry that it’s a about a miscarriage. Damn, thanks for bringing the room down, Gwyneth. Gawd. Daily Mail reports:
Gwyneth Paltrow has spoken for the first time about her anguish at losing her third child in a devastating miscarriage which almost claimed her life, too. In an unusually candid interview with The Mail on Sunday’s You magazine today, the Hollywood star confides that she is ‘missing’ the baby. And she confesses that she still longs for another child, despite having admitted that she may now have ‘missed the window’ to become a mother again...My children ask me to have a baby all the time,’ she says. ‘And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it. ‘But I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn’t work out and I nearly died. So I am like, “Are we good here or should we go back and try again?’’ Ms Paltrow also confesses that she feels ‘very broody’ whenever she sees friend Beyonce Knowles with her one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. The singer also suffered a miscarriage before becoming a mother. Ms Paltrow, who gives no details of when she suffered the miscarriage, also praises her husband’s talents as a father. ‘Regardless of what happens in our marriage, I chose the best father,’ she says.
I don’t want to talk about miscarriages, but I will talk about how my friend just sent me a picture of a kitten she’s adopting. It’s fluffy with orange and white stripes. Free to a loving home!
