Why do the news media make such a big deal about Celine Dion having a child at 41? She' not a freak ya' know?!

Meryl Streep had one at 43 and a lot of women are waiting until later so why is this considered newsworthy?

  • Merely because she's a celebrity and because Michael Jackson is still dead.

  • Bc she had so many problems conceiving and her husband had a battle with cancer. It's happy news. I haven't seen any website bashing

  • Because she is a celeb. They report EVERY time a celeb (from a list to d list celebs) get pregnant. And I like Celine Dion. she seems like a nice enough woman and he is a cancer survivor, they are lucky to be able to have children. I absolutely HATE that they are announcing it when she is only a few weeks along...but after 3 m/c I don't like when ANYONE announces they are preg before 13 weeks. Its SO devastating to have to tell people you have m/c when all you want to do is curl up and waste away......
