    Default Evangeline Lilly thinks being 'barefoot & pregnant' sounds like 'a dream'



    Evangeline Lilly has said she wants lots of babies and would consider adoption.


    Evangeline Lilly wants six children.
    The 35-year-old star of The Hobbit has a three-year-old son named Kahekili with her partner Norman Kali, as well as a very busy acting career. But family is of the utmost important to the actress, and she has not ruled out any of the ways she could have more babies in the future.
    “[I would] consider adoption as an alternative to having all six of them myself,” she told Canada’s Fashion Magazine.
    Evangeline became a household name after starring as Kate Austen in hit television series Lost. But in spite of her varied career, motherhood seems to have been her favourite role to date.
    “There is that old mentality where some think women should be barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen,” the brunette beauty said. “When I hear those words, I think, ‘What. A. Dream.’ There are no negative connotations to it.”
    Evangeline has managed to avoid getting herself stuck in the paparazzi spotlight and is rarely seen revelling in the Hollywood party scene. She hinted this may be because she’s got her head screwed on about what her end game is.
    “I am an opportunist,” she told the publication. “When opportunities come and I see them serving my grander goals in life, I take them. When I look ahead and see where I want to be in five years from now, I know acting can get me there. It’s a vehicle where I can realize my other dreams.”
    The actress can next be seen portraying Hope Van Dyne in superhero movie Ant-Man. She stars alongside Paul Rudd in the Marvel produced film.

    When she’s not working on her career, Evangeline resides in Hawaii with her family, which is where Lost was filmed.

    Barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen is fun if:

    You have good underfloor heating. Cold tiles on bare feet are a no-no.
    You have a state of the art kitchen.
    You can afford staff to clean the state of the art kitchen.
    You don't mind swollen ankles from standing/hanging about in the kitchen all day.
    You have a bathroom very close to the kitchen for when the baby kicks you in the bladder.
    You can afford nannies so you can go back to the kitchen as soon as possible after birth.

    If she wants to be barefoot, pregnant and "in the kitchen". Go for it. Get your Betty Crocker on. Meh, whatever.

    Agreed. Whatever works for her. If her dream life is being barefoot and pregnant I won't judge that. She can afford it so it's not like she's having a bunch of kids that society is saying for. I would most likely be bored to death if I didn't work but that's my personality and my choice. You can be a great mom working or staying home. I'm just jealous that she has the option of staying home if she wants to. I wish more women had the option.

    as well as a very busy acting career
    She does? LOST ended in 2010, and I haven't seen her in much since then.

    What kind of "busy acting career" does she have? Half the time when I'm reading the blind gossip items and it talks about someone who was on a very popular network show who was a bitch and hasn't done anything since the show I always think it's her.

    Kahekili Kali is an ethnic Hawaiian name. Her partner is Hawaiian.

    To be less paternalistic, I think they should have gone with the hyphened name Kahekili Lilly-Kali.

    There are plenty of ethnic Hawaiian names that don't sound so ridiculous with the last name Kali.
