Reality TV star Michelle Money has made celebrity news once more, but this time, it isn’t over her relationship status. Money, who is best known for her season 15 appearance on The Bachelor, has caught her fans attention by opening up about her teen pregnancy. In a Youtube commercial for the skincare company PMD,  Money reveals that at the age of 15, she had to give up her son for adoption. According to an interview with UsMagazine.com, the 35-year-old reality TV star said, “I am very hopeful that one day I will get the chance to reconnect with my son. I know I will never take the place of his adoptive parents, but I would absolutely love to have some place in his life if he will have me!” Money also has an 11-year-old daughter, Brielle. Fingers crossed that this famous family gets reunited soon!

This celebrity news is very unfortunate. What are some ways to know if you’re ready to have a baby?

Cupid’s Advice:

Children are a blessing. Although babies can bring joy, some couples simply just aren’t ready to have them. Let Cupid help you determine if you’re ready for parenthood before you actually get pregnant:

1. Available: Babies require a lot of time, care, and patience. Evaluate your schedule and goals to see if you can take care of another life besides your own, just like Money did in this celebrity news. Whether you’re focused on your career or trying to figure out what to do with your life you need to be honest with yourself about having the time to devote yourself to this baby.

2. Educate yourself: You’ll never know if children are for you if you don’t educate yourself on the topic. Take time to research what it’s like to have a baby and what they need. Or if you’re a hands-on learner, assist someone you know in caring for their baby. This will be the best way for you to see if you’re ready to have one of your own.

3. See your doctor: Whether you think you’re ready for a baby or not, you should consult your doctor if you’re around child-bearing age. Your doctor will be the best resource in helping you plan accordingly. Remember that your health should always be the top priority before bringing another life into this world.
