Sources say it was planned, and that Kourtney âwants to have a handful of kids.â The Kardashian had said in 2012, âI need to see what itâs like when I have three, but [having kids] is what life is about.â
How does having a third baby change your family dynamic?
Â Cupidâs Advice:
A third child can really change how a family works in ways that a second child does not. Itâs best to be prepared for these changes so that your family can properly adjust to this new addition:
1. There is now a middle child.Â Ah, yes, the notorious situation of the middle child. There are plenty of stories about how the middle child gets much less attention from parents. This is something every family can avoid, but many are guilty of without realizing. Of course youâll always be proud of that first-born child, and youâll dote on your new baby, but donât forget the middle child. Theyâre just as important.
2. Thereâs the odd man out.Â Three, being the odd and often uncomfortable number that it is, can create tension between the children. The two oldest might create a new bond after the baby is born and become closer than ever, which is fantastic until they start growing up and the third child is still treated like the baby sister or brother who never quite gets it.
3. There is always someone around.Â It might be that one kid is always hungry, or one kid is always late for a lesson, but this is to be expected for any number of children greater than one. On the bright side, this means that someone is always there to keep their sibling busy. Maybe the oldest is busy and the middle child wants to play. Instead of constantly pestering their older sister or brother, they now have a younger sibling to play with.

In devastating news,Â E!Â stars Bill and Giuliana Rancic face a surrogate miscarriage. The couple has been struggling to have another child, who would be a sibling to their son Duke, born by surrogate in August of 2012. The Rancics have a loving, supportive relationship with their surrogate, Delphine, who had an unexpected miscarriage at about nine weeks along. Giulianna herself had undergone a miscarriage years before, which only aided the heartbreak of the circumstances, according toÂ UsMagazine.com.
How do you support your partner through pregnancy troubles?
1. Donât ask questions you already know the answer to:Â Questions such as âAre you okay?â may seem supportive, but in reality are just plain aggravating. Asking is just trivial, especially when the circumstances are clearly not okay. Listening goes hand in hand with this idea, meaning that you have to look for the meaning underneath the words and tune into what they may not be saying. Something a gesture as simple holding your loveâs hand at the right moment can make all of the difference.
2. Support with more than just words:Â Saying youâll be there for your partner, and actually being there for your partner are two different animals. Being at doctors appointments, making crazy food runs, and supplying the foot rubs will go miles beyond any words you speak. What people forget is pregnancy does involve two parties, although only one of them carries the child. Pregnancy still takes an emotional toll on both partners, which is why it takes a strong partnership to maintain a foundation of support.
3. Therapy is not just for the crazies:Â Point blank, we all need someone to talk to, and therapy is a great place to get an impartial third party opinion. Couplesâ therapy has proven beneficial over recent years, allowing a safe place for the couple to open up and talk about issues at home. Even if there is just an aura of stress going around, therapy is a great place to dive into the root of the problem, and fix it under a united front.

There are two things Hollywood is full of: reality shows and celebrity children. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, who have their own upcoming reality show on VH1, toldUsMagazine.comÂ that they are wanting to bring some children into the mix. âHeâs the best Dad already,â said Rimes. âI have a little bit of experience with the kids now so, I feel like I wouldnât be too crazed. It doesnât feel like a real first, first!âÂ Cibrian has two children with ex-wife Brandi Glanville, sons Mason and Jake.Â After Rimesâ comment on kids, Cibrian joked, âLook, maybe we should just get another dog and then see how that goes.â Â Rimes said, âOther than the reason of us wanting to work together and be home with the kids, why not have fun and poke fun at everything thatâs gone on for the last five years.â
How can you tell if your relationship is strong enough to take on children?
Once a couple has been together for a certain amount of time, many might start thinking about whether their partner is family material, and questions of whether or not they want kids and how many they want can start popping up in conversations. This might be one of the most important conversations you can have in life. After all, itâs not just deciding to have a baby and bask in the newborn happiness. This decision will affect you for the rest of your life, and these kids are going to become adults. If you and your partner are talking about having kids, youâd better be sure you can handle them:
1. Want the kids before you have them:Â Maybe youâve never really liked children, or youâve had a bad experience with them in the past.Â No matter how it came about, some people just donât like being around children. This doesnât mean you wonât want kids eventually, but you have to know what youâre getting yourself into. If one partner wants kids and the other doesnât, a child would only create a gap in the relationship. Maybe the idea of a child seems nice, but you havenât been around kids much. Surround yourself with young relatives or babysit for a friend; get experience with children so you can be 100 percent sure youÂ wantÂ children:
2. Give them a sense of permanence:Â A child is a lifelong responsibility, and you should be willing to show it. An apartment that works for you and your partner might not be big enough for a child, or it might have some big safety risks. Make sure youâre ready for a child to be in your life before you even plan on having one. This means buying cribs, creating a nursery, and thinking of good schools in the area. Not only will you be better prepared for a child, but youâre showing your partner that youâre dedicated and not going anywhere.
3. Be ready for a big change in the relationship:Â A child will completely change the relationship between you and your partner, and you need to be ready for it.Â If you two have had the same routine for years, try making changes to your schedule and seeing you it affects your mood.Â Time that you spend with each other might now be spent with the baby, or trying to catch up on sleep. Not only will you be a couple, but you will be parents, completely changing the nature of your relationship. New tasks, schedules, and feelings are going to put your relationship to the test, so make sure youâre ready for it.
