    Hmm... I just saw a pic this morning of her and she definitely had a belly. I can't remember where I saw it.

    I need that in my life! I need to see if they're still selling that.

    Not a huge fan of hers either, but I guess it hasn't gone over the edge into hate (yet). And plus, this happened:

    That can happen, especially with unexplained infertility. It happened to someone my mum worked with many, many years ago - the poor girl felt like she had to hide her pregnancy for months because the adoption had yet to be finalised and she was terrified that The Powers That Be would call a halt to it and rehome their little boy to another couple because she was now expecting a bio-child.

    IIRC, wasn't Cameron pictured leaving a fertility clinic a while ago?

    A couple I'm friends with went through difficulties- it was originally claimed by a doc that the husband was the reason they weren't getting pregnant, so he went through treatment. It was later discovered that it was actually the wife who was basically in some type of menopause (I can't remember the exact medical issue) and her reproductive system was shutting down on her and she couldn't produce eggs.
    Had the original doctor discovered this, she could have undergone treatment and even salvaged some eggs.

    They tried donated eggs with his sperm, but she kept miscarrying.

    They decided to adopt. They were partway through the adoption process when they discovered she was pregnant- one of the donated eggs had finally worked and she was able to carry this pregnancy.
    So they called the adoption agency to ask them to put the file on hold. The woman at the agency said she was just about to call them, another couple had chosen them to adopt their infant son.

    My friends decided to still adopt him, while she was 3 months pregnant. haha

    One their son (adopted) and daughter (his sperm, donated egg, she carried) were a couple years old, my friend miraculously got pregnant "naturally". So they have this beautiful family of 3 children, all coming into the family in a different way. It's beautiful.

    ^^It definitely seems that there is some truth to it, about how many people become pregnant once they kind of "give up" trying. It must be that the body is in some kind of tense state of anxiety or something, when you're trying hard to conceive and are all stressed-out & upset that it's not succeeding. That's how it went down with me (as I've mentioned in another thread).

    Just after turning 41, i "gave up" and was just starting, sadly, to come to terms with the fact that we were not going to have a 2nd child. And then, a couple months later, found out that I am pregnant. It happened during the first month in years that we weren't trying to time intercourse with my ovulation & all that! I'm currently 2 months along and had my first ultrasound yesterday. The last time we conceived, we found out at our first ultrasound that the baby had no heartbeat. And I have endometriosis, a uterine fibroid, and a history of miscarriages. So I was kind of expecting to again receive similar bad news.

    Well, instead we found out that we are pregnant with TWINS. However, the doctor suspects that one is not a viable fetus. (In which case, he explained, it will just dissolve and be re-absorbed by my body, and won't affect the other fetus.) He just couldn't get a good enough look at it yet, so he's just not sure--both COULD be viable. I do have (at least) 1 perfect-looking fetus with a strong heartbeat, and so we are so thankful. (Of course we are certainly not out of the woods yet, bad things could still happen at anytime.) We will find out in 9 days at our 2nd ultrasound if we have 2 babies on the way or 1. We're kind of in shock. I can't believe my 41-year-old body actually conceived twins!

    I am living proof that sometimes the most unlikely of people can conceive.

    Best of luck! I hope that the other (I'm assuming Baby B?) is viable! I'm glad I didn't know until I was about 30 weeks along with my twins that you could lose one and not the other. I would have been more stressed out than I already was.

    With my friend and her unexpected pregnancy, the doctor told her that after having her first pregnancy (through implanted embryo with the donated egg), that it was like her body thought "Oh.. this is how you do it."

    Cameron Diaz's baby surprise! Actress, 47, and husband Benji Madden, 40, announce arrival of daughter Raddix

    By DAILYMAIL.COM REPORTER
    PUBLISHED: 13:31 EST, 3 January 2020 | UPDATED: 13:53 EST, 3 January 2020

    Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have welcomed a baby girl.
    The 47-year-old actress, who married the 40-year-old rocker in 2015, shared the surprising news with her fans on Instagram on Thursday.

    She revealed they have named their newborn daughter Raddix Madden but noted they 'won't be posting pictures or sharing any more details, other than the fact that she is really really cute'.

    She wrote on Thursday: 'Happy New Year from the Maddens! We are so happy, blessed and grateful to being this new decade by announcing the birth of out daughter, Raddix Madden.

    Surprise! Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have welcomed a baby girl

    'She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family.

    'While we are overjoyed to share this news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little's one's privacy. So we won't be posting pictures or sharing any more details, other than the fact that she is really really cute!! Some would even say RAD

    'From our family to all of yours, we're sending our love and best wishes for a Happy New Year and Happy New Decade. Sincerely, Cameron&Benji [heart emoji]'
    The new addition to their family has been long-yearned for.

    Just six months after they married, sources told People magazine that they were 'eager' to have children.

    The notoriously private star was last pictured in public at WholeFoods in LA on December 8.

    Announcement: The 47-year-old shared the news with her fans on Instagram on Thursday

    In August, Cameron opened up about their marriage in a rare interview, calling Benji 'the greatest human being'.

    She told InStyle magazine: 'I just want to build better, stronger friendships with the people who are in it with me. Of course, that includes my husband. Getting married to him was the best thing that ever happened to me. My husband's the best. He's the greatest human being, and he's my great partner. Marriage is certainly hard, and it's a lot of work. You need somebody who's willing to do the work with you, because there's no 60-40 in marriage. It's 50-50 period. All the time.'

    The Bad Teacher star wasn't sure if she was 'ready' for marriage when they got hitched, but she always knew Benji was 'special'.

    She added: 'I don't know if I was ready [when I got married], but I knew Benji was special. He's just a good man. There's no bulls**t. It's really refreshing. I'm grateful for him.'

    Cameron also insisted she's in no rush to return to Hollywood after stepping back from the spotlight following the release of her film Annie six years ago.

    She explained: 'The way I look at it is that I've given more than half of my life to the public. 'I feel it's OK for me to take time for myself now and choose how I want to come [back] into the world. If I decide to. 'I don't miss performing.

    Right now I'm looking at the landscape of wellness and all that. But whatever I do, it has to be something I'm passionate about - something that just feels effortless.'

    Given how many stories of suspected pregnancy that would from a “source close to the maddens” I suspect that they did this so that they could control the narrative & stop the leak getting another pay out.

First question from my American family was "how are his teeth?" because he's from the UK. They are nice, thanks to him growing up in Scotland where they had better dentristry. But is it looks that really matter?

    Mr P is my less muscular Jason Statham. He's super nice during my often bitchiness, understands the ups and downs of my being bipolar, likes me without makeup, deals with my crazy family, likes cuddles, takes care of stuff. He's currently changing the breaks on one of our cars as I type this. We laugh together all the time, deal with each others crappy movies (me - Showgirls, Casino, Behind the Candleabra), him er man films with Arnold the governator and Alien? He puts up with my stupid automatic reponse of "your mom" for any question asked and laugh at me for laughing thinking I'm funny.

    Finding someone that can make life easier when it sucks and better when it's awesome is great. Sure we have our lows and issues as everyone, but it's totally worth it. Oh, he get's a bonus for me calling him as he's heading home from work and asking if he can get me some wine.
    . You’re lucky.
