Well, THAT explains why they got married!

If Renee had stuck with him, maybe she’d be pregnant now.

I could see news like this devastating Renee Zellweger. I’m only speculating here, but I really think she wanted to marry and start a family with Jack. That may have had something to do with the spur-of-the-moment decision to marry Kenny Chesney. I watched Cold Mountain again last night, and when Ruby and Georgia (Renee and Jack) had their little family at the end, I thought that probably was what Renee really envisioned her life being like – married to Jack with children. I guess congrats to Jack and Karen.

Looks like he could be in a Target ad with all of that red and white!🙂

Does anyone know when the baby is due? Many fans are curious about that, and can’t wait to see more pics of pregnant Karen as well.
