"Babies are the must-have celebrity accessory"
Though we are happy to be linked to in today’s Washington Post’s blog, Celebritology, I don’t like how people keep referring to babies as "the must-have celebrity accessory."
What the $#&!? Celebrities are people too! We are only hearing about their pregnancies and babies more and more now that the media has declared a Hollywood Baby Boom. Several times a year since I created the Celebrity Baby Blog (January 2004, by the way), the media declares there’s a Celebrity Baby Boom! Other than realizing that babies sell more magazines, what gave them this idea? They have always been getting married and having families, just like normal people.
Ironically, I even heard that organizers in the gifting suite industry consider celebrity babies to have jumped the shark. Which is it? Are celebrity babies "hot hot hot" or are they over?
