Everywhere you turn in Hollywood nowadays there’s a pregnancy. One after the other a new celebrity announces that they’re carrying, and now it appears that three of the Kardashian Klan have little ones in tow. Although not publicly announced by any one of them (I guess we’ll have to wait for their new season to know for sure), the rumours of their respective pregnancies have caused a lot of public discussion . However, no one seems to be addressing the very interesting pop-culture tradition they follow, children then marriage. None of the Kardashians had a kid within wedlock, Kim had North then she married Kanye, while Scott and Kourtney had three kids and never officially wed. Now that there’s talks about Khloe and Kylie being pregnant, both unmarried but with their own respective boyfriends, we couldn’t help but ask, how often does this happen?
Well, apparently A LOT. Several hollywood couples have children then marriage. From Matthew McConaughey to Mila Kunis marriage does not seem to be the top priority. We asked professional matchmakers at Project Soulmate why this trend is on the rise and the answer is simple, a traditional family plan does not necessarily mean a happy one. If you are a strong business woman and want a child, but want to wait on marriage, that’s totally ok! Below we have a list of couples who are happily married, but had a kid before they said the I-Do’s.
Kanye and Kim Kardashian West:
This is one of the most famous couples on the planet right now, Kim and Kanye currently have two children together (and apparently plan on expanding with a third). They decided not to conform to the cultural norms back in 2013, and then chose to get married in 2014.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves:
These two had their child way before the thought of marriage crossed their minds. In 2008 the two had their first born Levi, and married in 2012, 4 years later. The two are still happily together, showing love really does grow with time.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher:
These two go WAYYYY back. Who doesn’t remember Mila sharing her first kiss with Ashton on That 70’s Show. The two then had their first daughter in 2014, and married the next year. Who says puppy love doesn’t last?!
Kristin Bell and Dax Shepard:
These two are the epitome of #relationshipgoals. In 2009 while they were waiting for the Defence of Marriage Act (2013) they had their first born daughter. They then got married in 2013, and have been madly in love with each other, and their baby Lincoln, since.
No matter when you decide to have children at Project Soulmate the goal is to find you your perfect match so you know you can raise a happy family like these couples!
