It's called birth control, people

So now there's a rumor that Gisele Bundchen, Tom Brady's new girlfriend (they started dating in January, as I understand it, although now there's some back-dating going on, perhaps to give the relationship some weight in light of recent revelations), may be pregnant, too. "Too?" you ask, if you've been under a rock. Yes, "too," because Bridget Moynihan (SO pretty!) is "more than 3 months" pregnant with Mr. Brady's first child -- conceived, apparently, during the death throes of his three-and-a-half-year long relationship with Ms. Moynihan. She's 36 or so, and wealthy, and stable, apart from not seeming to know where babies come from (which goes double for Tom, it may turn out), so while I applaud her decision to have what will surely be a healthy and fabulous baby, it makes me wonder whether all these famous people skipped school those days in Health class when we learned where babies come from.

All these accidental pregnancies, particularly in people who can't even stick out a relationship together, just seem kind of irresponsible to me. I'm not saying you have to be married to have kids, but some sort of commitment to the central pair who make the baby suggests that life will be more stable for the actual child, to me. That being said, I do think the trend of aging women adopting on their own, without waiting for Prince Charming's arrival, is a good one: more good homes for kids needing them is a nice shift.
