National Enquirer Blind Item

THIS divorced blonde film star smoked and drank her way through her first preg­nancy, and then did the same thing during her recent second pregnancy!

The actress, who’s engaged to her new baby-dad­dy, is so nicotine-addicted that she began puffing away minutes after giving birth! Who is she?

Wasn't she photographed with a wine glass while pregnant?

bluebonnetmom said...

Kate Hudson for the win here. This proves she is one selfish piece of work to care more about her addictions than her children. : (

BrandieMarie said...

so obvious. most recent celebrity mommies have husbands.

the only non-married one i can think of off the top of my head is selma blair who is not blonde, nor engaged.

If I can quit when I was pregnant, really anyone can. Anyone who cares about their baby, that is. If someone can't quit for their baby, they have no business being a mother since it proves their own needs come first.

Without a doubt, Kate Hudson. I heard she was a big smoker. It's starting to show on her face too.

ick.

I do not know of one person who smoked during pregnancy that's baby had a problem. Probably not a great idea, but certainly not as bad as drinking or drugs. I'm not advocating smoking by any means, but boy or boy this blog is becoming an anti-smoking awareness program.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I have a friend who smoked while pregnant because her doctor said it would be more stressful for the baby if she attempted to quit. So who knows.

Crystal Jones said...

I know someone who smoked through both her pregnancies. Yes, she looked like trailer trash out there on her balcony, but her kids are just fine. Plenty of people did it in the 50's and 60's. Smoking is bad- DUH!

hromaki said...

A drink Here & there during pregnancy, especially later in pregnancy, isn't a big deal. Much more healthy for the baby than smoking.

Crystal Jones said...

And PS I hate KH whether she smokes or not. LOL!

RocketQueen said...

what diatribes and dish said. My doctor has said a glass of red wine with a meal about once a week while pregnant is fine...certainly preferable to smoking. Not that I'm having a drink that often, but I have had a sip here and there and am quite fine with it.

Some women are told by their doctors that a glass of red wine every now and then isn't a big deal. My mom was really anemic whilst pg with me, and her doctor told her to have a small glass every night before bed. She never smoked, though, and I think it's really, really horrible to continue to smoke whilst pg OR drink anything alcoholic in excess. I don't think the very occasional ciggie or glass of wine or beer is a huge deal, though.
All that being said, I loathe Kate Hudson and totally believe it's her. And if she breaks up Muse, I will hunt her down.

I have a friend smoked while pregnant, the entire pregnancy. I was so upset that she wouldn't quit. Her baby was born with downs syndrome and at 2 yrs old now, was just diagnosed with Autism. I don't know if it is definitely related, because I'm not a doctor, but I can't imagine smoking not effecting a child during pregnancy, even if the effects don't show up until the child is older.

Ice Angel said...

Crila-Downs Syndrome is a genetic mutation-has nothing to do with smoking while pregnant. Autism is commonly found in Downs Syndrome children. It's sad, but not related.

NYer said...

I am stunned that anyone today would question the dangers posed by smoking during pregnancy--especially on the basis that they do not personally know anyone who had a problem or that everyone used to do it and "we" all turned out all right. The science is not even debatable; just ask a doctor or do even minimal research. I know children who were affected by this and it is not pretty, and wholly avoidable particularly with the quitting aids available today. And I know how tough it is to quit having quit more than 10 years ago after smoking heavily for more than 20 years. Of all the good things happening in society today (and I believe there are many), the success of the campaign against smoking is one of the best. (Descending from soapbox now, carry on with snark.)

@Rocket Queen, I did the same thing while pregnant - one glass of beer and wine per week. My kid turned out fantastic - prettier, smarter and healthier than I am.

On a related note, I also ate tons of plain yoghurt, salmon, and dark chocolate, which happened to be my particular cravings, and chewed cinnamon gum to deal with the acid reflux of having a giant being pushing up my stomach.

Today my kid loves all of those foods.

Now! said...

One glass of beer OR wine. But I don't think having both would have made a big difference.

80 million French people can't be wrong.

On a different note, I remember in 1993 when they held the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden, with a whole batch of music celebs. Among them was Ron Wood, who performed Dylan's "Seven Days." At the end of his performance he took his bows and headed offstage where, at the edge of the stage, there was a roadie waiting for him holding up a lighted cigarette. Woodie grabbed from the guy's hand, took a big long drag, and exited stage left. I nearly fell out of my seat laughing.

RocketQueen said...

Thanks Nutty_Flavor - I was a bit nervous admitting that because the baby board I belong to has rabid opponents ("Why don't you just pour wine down your fetus' throat?!?") but I read enough about it and researched beforehand to believe for myself that a glass a week with dinner is just fine...and relaxing especially if I'm stressed. For some reason it doesn't taste as good as it did pre-pregnancy, though?
And you're right, it's really only North Americans that are rabidly against ANY alcohol while pregnant. My mom drank while pregnant without me and I turned out okay :)

Back when I had mine (20 years ago), my doctor told me the same thing about the stress of quitting (particularly since I was in a high pressure job and could not quit or take time off) He said it would be fine if I cut down to 5-10 cigarettes per day. Back then, the only known effect was low birth weight. Since my were born at 8'10" and 9'3", I'm afraid to think of what would have happened if I'd quit completely.

Anna Geletka said...

Let me be clear - I'm not advocating smoking while pregnant. However, there aren't good studies on the effects because most pregnant women do not smoke and it's impossible to do either a blinded or randomly selected study (imagine being in the group of pregnant women who was randomly selected to smoke during pregnancy just to see what happens).

Smoking while pregnant cannot possibly be good for you or the baby, but the exact negative effects are impossible to determine. My formerly pack-a-day friend recently gave birth and her doctor gave her a cut-back schedule that scaled her down to one cigarette per week by her third month. He said it would be better than the stress of quitting cold turkey.

The Black Cat said...

I knew women who smoked while pregnant, usually in secret because they didn't want to get a tongue lashing in public, all their babies turned out fine. Within normal range for weight. True we don't know the long term effects on those children but I tend to think if the mother is taking care of herself in terms of diet and low stress then it cannot be that bad, as someone else pointed out this was the norm not too long ago but this may account for too many north americans being complete dumbasses.

surfer said...

I think it goes without saying that obviously, smoking during pregnancy should be avoided. My mother smoked during her pregnancies, and though we were both born full-term and healthy, I weighed in at a whopping 4 1/2 lbs. and my sister was 5 1/2 lbs.

Jeri said...

Kate immediately came to mind when I read this.

Jeri said...

Things do tend to cycle over the years. Maybe in twenty years smoking & drinking while pregnant will be considered healthy.

As we now enter our new prohibition. Before I quit smoking I felt like I was shooting up in public the way people treated me.

I think you can go too far either way.

Crystal Jones said...

I agree with Jeri.

My mother smoked and drank throughout her eight pregnancies. We all turned out okay but I don't know if I would do it.

TONIc said...

On the Ron Wood comment, I once had him to my bookstore for a booksigning, and he insisted on being able to smoke while he signed and talked to fans. We had to get him a smokeless ashtray, and he somked like a chimney.

That being said, a glass of wine or a beer during pregnancy is fine. And I smoked somewhat throughout a couple of pregnancys years ago, and had huge, healthy babies. We go to extremes these days with the health advice.

Krissie said...

This blind doesn't say the actress had one or two cigs and a few drinks. It says she "smoked and drank her way through" the pregnancy. That sounds to me like it was a daily thing.

I know two sisters and their mom smoked like a chimney while pregnant with the first, did not smoke while pregnant with the second. First sis has massive asthma. Second sis doesn't. Could be a coincidence but I find that a bit hard to believe.

Anyways. Gotta be Kate for this. All you have to do is read one interview with her and it's clear she is a big ol' spoiled brat who would never do anything to inconvenience herself no matter what condition she was in.

hamster party said...

Agree, Kate H, & why would anyone even gamble or risk harming the health of their unborn child? I get that it's addicting, but really? If you don't care about the kid and want the absolute best for it, why have it? Don't get it.

I hear ya. I quit almost 4 years ago, but would NEVER EVER treat smokers poorly, because I know what it's like to have some random asshole treat you like a leper because you're having a smoke. Like it or not, smoking is legal. The self-righteous assholes who offer unsolicited opinions on your habit can go fuck themselves. But I DO wish more smokers would be more courteous. I always did my best to make sure I never exhaled while passing someone on the sidewalk; unfortunately not everyone is as respectful of others, or as aware of their surroundings.


Krissie - I agree, it could be a coincidence, but there's a very good chance it isn't. My mom smoked while pregnant with my older brother, but didn't while pregnant with me. My brother has severe asthma. I'm fine. He always accuses her of causing it. He says it jokingly, and we all laugh, but we all know he's probably right.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I have known several people that smoked while pregnant...some babies were fine but others did have issues with asthma, etc.

It's funny what different doctors will say. A friend of mine had a doctor tell her if she wanted to get pregnant, she needed to quit smoking all together and cut back on drinking drastically if she ever wanted to conceive.

lutefisk said...

AnrewBW, I was there and remember that also. I was about 4 weeks pregnant and I was so concerned about the loud music harming my pregnancy that I called my ob/gyn to make sure it was ok to go to the concert.
That said I can't imagine smoking while pregnant. I can't imagine the pure selfishness.
