So she just had a baby like 3 weeks ago. Now take a look at the before and after. Would it surprise you if I told you she had a c-section? I know we"ve been through this and it"s by no means an original topic of conversation, but I"ve received so many emails recently from disbelieving readers slamming me for even suggesting that any woman would VOLUNTARILY submit herself to major surgery for the sake of convenience so I wanted to revisit the subject just to illustrate how suspiciously often c-sections occur in showbiz. In addition to Geri, let"s just take a quick roll call from the last 3 years, shall we? Gwen Stefani, Kate Hudson, Angelina, Gwyneth (with Moses), Kate Hudson, Denise Richards (both times), Brooke Shields, Victoria Beckham, Madonna, Kelly Ripa, Britney Spears, Elizabeth Hurley … and that"s only what I can remember off the top of my head! But think about it: if you were take a random sampling of celebrity births and compare them with experiences from your own circle of friends, how would the frequency of c-sections rank against Hollywood? Here"s my personal examble: I am in a book club. There are 12 women in my book club. Over the last two and a half years, six of them have had a baby. Outside of book club, from among the 9 other women I know who have had children in the last 24 months, only one has had to go the c-section route. In other words, that"s 1 out of 15 women - about 6%. In Hollywood? Among the A listers? I think it"s the other way around. Are you telling me ALL of those babies were in the BREECH position or required the infamous "emergency c-sections"??? And that Jennifer Garner"s kid was the only one who managed to turn herself around? Next. Please. Photo from Saving Face
