5 Celebrities Speak on Having Babies Before Marriage

As the saying goes, ‘first comes marriage, then comes a baby in a carriage’ but it doesn’t always work out so wonderfully poetically in real life and there are plenty of reasons why you might have a child before you tie the knot. These 5 celebrities have all done just that, breaking the conventional relationship formula and just doing whatever suits them and their personal situation. Some may not want to wed, others might have unexpectedly ended up pregnant and more just might want to wait for the perfect time to plan the wedding exactly how they want it. It really is no big deal to welcome a child before you walk down the aisle and these 5 stars aren’t rushing to get married just because they’ve already had a baby with their partner or are expecting one soon out of wedlock.



Angelina Jolie


Angelina and Brad Pitt have a large family of their own and although not being married doesn’t bother them, their kids do want them to marry:”We’re getting a lot of pressure from the kids. We didn’t realise how much it meant to them and then, in getting engaged, how much it also means to us.”

Holly Madison

Holly and her partner Pasquale Rotella recently welcomed a baby girl (sidenote: they named it Rainbow!) but they haven’t started planning their wedding yet: ”One thing at a time. We totally want to [get married], probably in late summer. We’re going to wait until the baby comes and we get moved in to the house before I start planning any of that.”

Jessica Simpson

Jessica keeps having to put her wedding off because she keeps getting pregnant so has to cancel each date she’s planned: “We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up. I’m doing it very backwards, I know! I’ll just keep my legs crossed this time.”

Kim Kardashian

Kim critized her sister Kourtney before for having a baby out of wedlock, but now she completely gets it because she has her own situation: “I was like, ‘You’re not married! How could you do this?’ I was really firm and strict. But she was like, ‘Marriage isn’t what I want.’ And later, I realized she had a better family life than I did.”

Kristin Cavallari

Kristin and her other half Jay Cutler already have one child together so they already feel like they’re married now and aren’t rushing into anything: ”We’re a family and it feels like we’re already married. Marriage isn’t at the top of our priority list right now, but we’ll do it. We’re talking about having another baby soon. We want kids close in age. Jay wants four so we’d love to have two closer in age, take a little break then have two more.”
