Gwyneth Paltrow says "no plans for any more" children right now

Gwyneth_paltrow_020908_04_cbbOscar winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, 35, is not interested in having another baby… at least for right now. Gwyneth and husband Chris Martin, 31, of Coldplay are busy parents to Apple Blythe Alison, who will be turning 4 next month, and Moses, who just turned 2. The active mom says she is a "wreck" keeping up with her two children explaining:

Please no! There are no plans for anymore. I mean, I wouldn’t rule it out for later, but it’s hard to be a mother. It’s years of not sleeping, it’s years of putting people ahead of yourself, or at least it should be.  Some days you feel exhausted, like today. I’m a wreck.

Gwyneth also finds the idea of pregnancy a little daunting and admits she did not breeze through it with her two pregnancies.

Some women love it — I feel terrible from start to finish. So sick in the beginning and in such a bad mood. If one could just appear, maybe I’d consider having another child sooner.

If she adopted, “one would appear”…..just a thought🙂

I had a feeling she would stop at two kids

Glad that Gwyneth was honest about her pregnancies. Sometimes women don’t want to say that they didn’t have pleasant pregnancies for fear of being called ungrateful about being a mother.


I appreciate her honesty because not every woman enjoys being pregnant. Her kids are cute and I remember her mentioning somewhere that they’re thinking about adopting later on.

it’s nice to hear a celeb mom admit how hard being a mom is.

the kids are adorable🙂

It’s so nice to hear her refreshing honesty. I thought the same thing — maybe they should adopt baby number three. Her kids are darling … and the name “Apple” has grown on me these past few years 🙂

I have to laugh when I hear celebrities whine about how hard it is for them to be a parent when they have someone else to clean their house, do their laundry, cook their food, buy their food and babysit. Not to mention that they have long swaths of time to be home. Yeah Gwyneth, you must really be a wreck! Come live some of our lives for a week – I guarantee you could not hack it!

I feel the same about pregnancy and children. Nice to see, that I´m in good company😉

Simulataneously, edgy, honest to a fault, wise and in the final analysis, refreshing.

If I had one of each, I would stop at two too. Gwyneth has her “million dollar family”, what a lucky lady! on

I have a son the same age as Apple and a daughter the same age as Moses and am currently expecting #3…and it’s HARD!!!!! I’m happy to have another child on the way, but it is hard!

I love that Gwyneth is honest about not enjoying pregnancy! When I was pregnant with my first daughter, all I heard from my mother and sisters, and relatives and friends was how great pregnancy was and much they loved it. LOL a month or two in, I was wondering, what is there to love about this?! Its great to know another woman, while infinitely grateful for the end result, did not enjoy the “technical” parts of pregnancy! I probably threw up at least three times a day for my first six months, suffered from PUPPPs, had mild pre-eclampsia and just did not feel well the entire time. Add that on to a nearly 9lb baby with an off-the-charts head coming out of a 5’1, extremely petite body and I myself am really amazed at how anxious I am to do it again! LOL thats the motherly instinct for you, I guess. It really is amazing!

it is hard to take care of 3… heck, it’s hard to take care of two. I also heard that she had a bit of PPD after Moses was born. I think she is a woman who handles herself with much grace and if they want to adopt later, I think that’s great as well… there are so many children in the world that need families.
