This celebrity baby comes after quite a few years of marriage. How do you know when you and your partner are ready for a child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Having a baby is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly; it’s extremely important that you and your partner are completely ready to raise a child together. So, when do you know when the time is right? Cupid’s here with the latest relationship advice:

1. Work won’t interfere: One of the main reasons Heidi and Spencer waited so long to have a child was because their work lives we’re way too busy. Adding a child into the mix at that time in their lives wouldn’t have been fair. Make sure you have enough time on your plate when you want to start having children.

2. You’re financially stable: You shouldn’t have to worry about money when you’re raising your kids. You and your partner have to be sure money won’t be a problem after you have kids. This way, instead of worrying about finances, you can spend all your time loving your little ones.

3. You’re mentally prepared: Before you have kids, you and your partner have to have loads of conversations about it. This isn’t something you can decide on right away. You have to be sure that the two of you are ready for a lifetime of work and responsibility.
