By Brittany Stubbs

Bruce Willis is a daddy-to-be — again! The actor’s beautiful wife Emma Heming-Willis, is officially expecting their second child together, confirms People. Willis comments on his experience of being a father to the couple’s first child, daughter Mabel Ray who is now 20 months old, stating, “I think I’m even more open and more giving as a father now. I pay more attention now because I value it more and I’m less caught up with my career.” Willis is also a parent to his children from a previous marriage with Demi Moore, fathering daughters Tallulah, 19, Scout, 22, and Rumer, 25.

How do you decide how many children are right for you?

Cupid’s Advice:

It can be hard to make the decision that’s right for you when it comes to deciding how many children to have. Cupid has some advice:

1. Financially: Although children are referred to as gifts, they are far from free. When it comes to planning whether or not to expand your family, your financial situation is a large factor to consider. You may dream of having four precious children, but can you afford to support the expenses that come with those lives, both currently and in the future.

2. Time commitment: Each child is in need of your personal time and attention. It’s important to consider whether you and your partner have the luxury of that personal time to devote to each your children separately. Will you be able to make all those different little league games, dance performances, and parent-teacher meetings?

3. Age: When planning a family, the age of you and your spouse might depend on the number of children right for you. If you’re starting a family when you’re older and don’t necessarily want to have all your children back-to-back, you may decide that a smaller family is what is fit for you.
