Lovely Liv Tyler

I discovered a great site dedicated to Liv Tyler, called Lovely Liv Tyler. It hosts tons of photos including a bunch of stalkerazzi shots of her pregnancy. Check out this article from Dutch Celebrity that they translated.

In it, she says: “I have always said I want at least five [children]. I am such a motherly type. People in my surroundings get nervous from that sometimes. Maybe it is because my mother is more eccentric than me. She is living a wild life and sometimes I am motherly over her. I remember saying as a child: ‘Mom, I think it is time for me to go to bed now’, because she didn’t think about such things.

Why do celebrities always want an insane amount of kids?

So you’re saying 5 kids is an “insane” amount?

I must admit, five is a pretty large number for this day and age. I couldn’t imagine having five. And Liv and her husband both work quite hard jobs – It wouldn’t be fair to the five children, if they could never spend time with them.

I think it’s because they don’t have to be the sole caretaker. Think about it this way- wouldn’t a 7000 square foot home be amazing, with a guest house and a pool (and pool house) etc? Yes it would be- but not if you spent all of your time cleaning and maintaing it. But- if you can afford help it makes it wonderful. Or even having 5 houses or 10- every city you go to you could have a house. It’s only great if you have the money to afford help.

Lots of kids are great, but reasonably speaking, it’s not like you need them to work on the farm- where they would be busy all day and helping earn $. 5 isn’t an insane amount but it definetly eats into “me time” and “couple time” etc… you know- those things that help keep sanity and good relationships.

because celebrities can afford to have 5+ kids…
