In my recent travels, I've had the chance to meet some new parents who also happen to be celebrities. We chatted about babies, strollers, traveling with children, the blog, etc. Very nice.
Both times, I told them that now that I was a parent, I'd felt very ambivalent about posting paparazzi pictures of parents and their kids. And both times, they quickly replied that living in the paparazzi bubble can really suck sometimes. "It's like they're stealing your life," one said [and not in reference to not being paid for the photos, either.] Then today People Magazine announced they're doing a special Celebrity Babies issue, due out June 8. About the Jolie-Pitt baby, who hasn't been born yet, and thus, didn't make the issue, the People editor said not to worry, "When the baby's born, I'm pretty sure we're going to be on it." Well there's a load off my mind.
So I decided to cook up a poll of dt readers to gauge your sense of this whole celebrity parents thing. Please ignore for a moment the celebrity parent media freakshows like TomKat, Britney, Brangelina, etc., and then then take the poll here.
Or you can take it here, too.
