It seems that Nick Lachey is another one of the celebrity hunks who would now like to be a dad. Lachey, who is in a relationship with Vanessa Minnillo, is looking forward to having children, one of the reasons being that his age is beginning to show no mercy. Â “I’ll be 38 this year, so it’s one of those things that I’m certainly behind the eight-ball on,”Â he told People. Not only is a baby on his mind, but a wedding is as well. Â The ceremony, which will be a taped TLC special, will be a very special start to Lachey’s dream of having a loving family.
What are the benefits of having children later in life?
Some people wait a very long time before having children, whereas others choose to have them early on. Â Cupid has some thoughts on why having children later in life may be a good thing:
1. Stability: If you wait a while to have a child, you will allow yourself to have grown economically, mentally and emotionally. Â You won’t have to deal with the extra moodiness that comes with being a teen and the financial struggles that come with first jobs.
2. Youth: By putting off having children, you’ll be giving yourself a chance to experience and enjoy your youth without having to sacrifice for someone else. Â You’ll avoid “growing up too fast.” Â Being young only lasts for a short time, so enjoy it while you can.
3. Fit as ever: Saving a baby for later keeps your figure in shape while you’re young. Â We all know the hassle of staying fit. Â Why not have nice bodies last while they still can?
