In the latest celebrity baby news, celebrity couple Jenna Bush Hagar and Henry Hager are expecting baby number three, according to “I’m pregnant!” Bush said, as she revealed her happy news to her Today co-anchors on Monday, April 22. “I’m only telling because Mila and Poppy found out yesterday in their Easter baskets. They told the man behind me on the airplane, they told the people at church.” What happy news!

In celebrity baby news, Jenna Bush Hagar and her husband will soon be outnumbered. What are some ways to handle three kids versus two or one?

Cupid’s Advice:

Having three children is a lot of fun, as long as you don’t forget that your partner is your partner. You’ll both still need to take time for yourselves. Someone will always need you and your partner. And when they’re older, they’ll learn to rely on each other. Cupid has some tips:

1. Get that minivan: Having three kids means you need to be able to fit them all in the vehicle. This also means being able to fit everyone in the back with car seats. Having a larger vehicle will mean less stress when wrangling your little ones for a trip to the doctor or a family outing.

2. Keep a tighter budget: Three kids cost more than two, so you might want to start keeping a tighter budget. Even if your kids are younger now, they will all eventually be at an age where you’ll need to buy three times as many school supplies, shampoo bottles (you will fly through shampoo, as silly as that sounds), and toys. And, do not underestimate the cost-savings of hand-me-downs.

3. Try not to put too much responsibility on the oldest: Your older children may want to help with their youngest sibling, but beware of putting too much responsibility on the oldest. Teaching them to change diapers or cook lunch in the microwave–if they’re seven or older–will teach them responsibility earlier. Even if your oldest is five years old and the other two are still younger, it can be easy to fall into the, “watch your brothers” trap while you run to the bathroom. Don’t forget to let your oldest be a kid, too!

Three kids can seem like a handful! What are some ways you would handle three kids versus one or two? Let us know in the comments below!
