It looks like Kim Kardashian is being confronted with the baby question yet again post-marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries.  In fact, E! News got an exclusive interview with the diva and her man after they appeared on the Tonight Show together.  Although rumors have been surfacing that speculate about a possible pregnancy, Kardashian insists they simply aren’t true, according to HollyScoop.  “I think we would wait like a year before we really start trying to have kids,” said the reality star.  “I think we want to figure out where he is gonna play and figure out like his career and like if we have to pack up and move somewhere, like the Midwest.  Who knows?”  Despite their uncertain plan, they do know one thing, and it involves having “lots of kids.”

What role does your career play when you’re deciding whether to have kids?

Cupid’s Advice:

Many factors in life determine whether you’re ready to have children, and your career is a pretty big one.  Here are some things to consider:

1. Hours: If your job is demanding and you’re rarely home long enough to scarf down some food and get a few hours sleep, you may not be prepared to have a child unless you can tone down your career.

2. Position: Make sure your career pays well enough to support a family.  Babies cost money … for at least 18 years of your life.  You also need to decide whether one of you is going to be able to stay home with the new child or whether you’re going to need to consider daycare.

3. Maternity leave: It may seem obvious, but it’s important to research your company’s policies on maternity (and paternity) leave for when the baby comes.  If your job doesn’t allow for such things, it’s definitely a factor to consider.
