The world seems to be utterly obsessed with celebrity babies. While a celebrity couple can offer up a huge amount of interest, combining their DNA and spawning a new generation of Hollywood royalty is something that everyone seems to be intrigued by in the world of the entertainment industry. People are constantly trying to release the first photos of a celebrity baby and people are always speculating if there is a new child on the way for their favorite Hollywood couples.
Yet, it's obvious that not all celebrity babies are born into the best possible circumstance and not all celebrity babies are celebrated in the same fashion. While the public couldn't be happier for Beyoncé when she released her pregnancy photos dressed as a glowing flower of a mother, the reaction was quite different when it was finally revealed that Kylie Jenner had given birth. There were some people that thought highly of her released video chronicling her pregnancy, but there were still quite a few people that felt like this was a huge mistake. Her young age coupled with the fact that Travis Scott doesn't seem like the most responsible person to father her child were just a few reasons why people didn't think too highly of Kylie having a child. Yet, she's not the only celebrity that the public hasn't all jumped onboard with when it comes to bringing new life into the world. Check out our list of the 15 celebs who should not grace the world with their babies and see how some celebrities might want to hold off their decision to bring a child into the world.
15 Lady Gaga Might Be Too Unstable To Be A Mother
While Lady Gaga has started to evolve from her former over-the-top persona, people still don't call her by the name Stefani Germanotta. It's going to be quite some time before the public forgets about her meat dress and arriving on the red carpet in the egg. When Gaga started dating the Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney, it seemed like she was starting to leave all her theatrics behind and could have easily become part of the newest Hollywood power couple. Yet, their relationship didn't end up going the distance and ultimately broke up.
The public seemed onboard with their love (especially after the giant heart-shaped engagement ring), but things have certainly changed after their breakup.
Nowadays, Gaga is still seen as a bit unstable and people worry that her theatrics will come back or that she'll push that onto her unfortunate offspring in the future.
14 Amanda Bynes Isn't Mentally Stable
When Amanda Bynes was first introduced to the world through her roles on The WB and Nickelodeon, she was seen as extremely talented. She was transitioning out of the child actress persona and was starting to embark on a burgeoning career acting on the big screen. Yet, the transition didn't exactly go as smoothly as everyone hoped. She started having some truly bizarre behavior in front of the public eye, from off-the-wall makeup to strange wigs worn out and about.
Her social media presence seemed completely different from her former child-star persona and she started calling out other celebrities through a variety of odd Tweets.
In one horrifying Tweet, Bynes wrote to Rihanna and said, "Chris Brown beat you because you're not pretty enough." Yet, the real crisis came when she started making accusations of abuse against her father, which she later retracted and said they were false. It seems like she's finally starting to get her life back on track but she still doesn't seem mentally sound enough to have children of her own.
13 January Jones Probably Shouldn't Have Had A Kid
When January Jones first became known to the public, people couldn't help but remark on how beautiful she was and how much she reminded the world of old-Hollywood glamour. This was amplified by the fact that she portrayed Betty Draper on the hit series Mad Men, and was often portrayed as the epitome of housewife glamour from the '60s and '70s. While her professional career seemed to be going off swimmingly, her personal life had some major controversy. Jones was photographed with married men on more than a few occasions and she refused to name the father of her child. After the baby was born, people hoped that she would finally divulge the father's name, but she chose to raise her child without a father figure instead. In an interview with Red magazine in 2017, Jones talked about life as a single mother and said,
"I mean, I'm an emotionally immature person. ... I see myself behaving like a child all the time."
This doesn't seem like a woman that needs to have any more children.
12 Rihanna Is Too Wild And Irresponsible To Be A Parent
When Rihanna was first introduced to the world as a fresh-faced beauty from Barbados, people thought of her as a music artist that was akin to other pop stars like Christina Aguilera or Britney Spears. Yet, that perception eventually changed once details regarding her personal life started to make themselves known to the public. After the abuse charge against Chris Brown, the public was hoping that Rihanna would be champion for standing up to domestic abuse but, instead, she wound up renewing her relationship with Brown. On top of that, her social media presence has included a variety of partying scenes (including some jaw-dropping photos of antics with strippers) and various substance use. The most recent scandal involved some alleged video of Rihanna doing coke while at Coachella. This is a woman that seems to have her plate full just getting her own life together and there is no need for a child to be thrown into the mix.
11 We're Still Skeptical Justin Bieber Has Changed For The Better
While the public still holds out hope that Justin Bieber will one day return to the persona he once embodied as the sweet kid from Canada with amazing talent in music, the hope is starting to dwindle.
There has been a seemingly endless barrage of news stories regarding his volatile behavior, from starting fights with the paparazzi to getting physical with fans asking to take photos with him.
There have also been some womanizing ways that have rubbed the public the wrong way, from the prostitutes overseas to the revolving door of girlfriends. It seems like Bieber has been trying to get his life together for quite some time, with some people feeling like he's finally starting to make a change. Yet, that doesn't exactly mean that he's ready to become a father.
10 Miley Cyrus Is A Wrecking Ball
When Miley Cyrus became known to the world as more than just the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus, people felt like she had amazing star quality as a young actress and singer. Yet, she didn't seem content with her squeaky-clean persona and sought to shed her Hannah Montana character through some seriously disturbing antics. From the infamous foam finger performance to the stage shows that involved phallic symbols and barely-there ensembles, not everyone thought that Miley's "movement" was revolutionary.
Instead, she seemed completely out of control and seriously delusional for believing that her young fans would follow suit.
While she seems to be making a turnaround when it comes to her persona, she still doesn't seem like she's ready to become a role model for her future child.
9 Paris Hilton Tries So Hard To Be Relevant
Paris Hilton has become a mainstay figure in the world of the rich and famous ever since she started to hit up the Hollywood hotspots as a socialite. People loved seeing her on the red carpet and the public ate up the notion of an American heiress hobnobbing with celebrities. Yet, she didn't exactly cultivate the best reputation as she became further known to the public, from her infamous tape with Rick Salomon to the ignorant comments she made while taping The Simple Life.
She's tried to put those embarrassing moments behind her in order to build herself up as a brand and work on her professional career as a DJ, but she hasn't seemed to change much in the eyes of the public.
Her most recent publicity stunt of getting engaged to Chris Zylka has also come under fire since there were rumors that she purchased her own ring and didn't even wait for him before grabbing the ring and putting it on her own finger. For a person as self-centered as Paris Hilton, motherhood doesn't exactly seem like the best fit.
8 Not Even Disney Would Approve Of Bella Thorne
Bella Thorne may have started off in the public eye as a fresh-faced beauty on the Disney Channel series, Shake It Up, but she has since evolved into the same old stereotype given to former child stars. While there have been other former child stars that have tried to shake their innocent persona by going for a more provocative style and look, Bella Thorne has taken it to a different level with her antics via social media. She's posted photos of herself with see-through clothing and has often tried to bring attention to her nipple piercing in her ensembles.
She was also photographed with Scott Disick at Cannes when he hadn't officially split from Kourtney Kardashian and she's constantly trying out some new outlandish exploit on the red carpet.
Her over-the-top behavior doesn't seem at all conducive to becoming a new mother and people don't really need to see another train-wreck former Disney star trying her hand at motherhood.
7 Rita Ora Is "Becky With The Good Hair"
Despite the fact that Rita Ora had already made a name for herself as a full-on celebrity in the UK, it's taken quite awhile for American audiences to even know her name. Once American audiences became familiar with her, she didn't exactly have the best reputation.
She became known to the world as the newest girlfriend of Rob Kardashian, but their relationship ended in a very public and ugly way.
Rob ended up taking to Twitter to air their personal business and stated, "She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together.” Ora wound up responding by Tweeting, "Rob’s d*** was wack, I had to go get it somewhere else.” That didn't exactly show her in the best light and things seem to continue to get worse. From the speculation of being "Becky with the good hair" to the photo of her being far too cozy with Conor McGregor (whose girlfriend just gave birth to their son), the world doesn't need to see Ora as a new mother anytime soon.
6 Lindsay Lohan Is Trying, But It Might Not Be Good Enough
There was a time when Lindsay Lohan was considered to be one of the most talented young actresses in Hollywood and people couldn't wait to see how she would evolve in the entertainment world. She was starting to transition from being known as a child actress and was even embarking on a career in music, but things started to change in regards to her personal life. Her professional career was starting to really take off with the hit film, Mean Girls, but her partying ways started to impede on how she was being perceived by those in Hollywood.
It wasn't long before she started dealing with a string of legal problems and her life seemed to be going into a downward spiral.
Nowadays, she's trying to turn her life around, but she's still in no position to become a mother.
5 Kendall Jenner Is Too Focused On Her Career
When Kendall Jenner was first shown on the reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she was just the insignificant younger half-sister that seemed more like a nuisance than a real part of the storyline. Yet, the world eventually saw her grow up in front of the cameras and now she is viewed as one of the most successful models throughout the world. She has walked the runway in various high-profile fashion shows and she's been able to set herself apart from the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. While her sister Kylie just welcomed her first child and her half-sister Kim just welcomed her third child, Kendall doesn't seem to have babies on the mind for herself. Instead, she's focusing on her career and doesn't let her personal life become the main focus of the story. This seems like the best route for acclaimed supermodel since she doesn't need another complication in her life.
4 Jaden Smith Is Too Busy To Take Care Of Kids
As the child of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Jaden Smith probably never even had to start a career of his own. He could have lived quite comfortably from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air money and just spend his days with the other celebrity kids in Hollywood. Yet, that's not the route he took and started to garner quite a reputation for being a hardworking and driven young man at a very early age. He appeared alongside his father in The Pursuit of Happyness in 2006, was the lead character in The Karate Kid, and starred in the M. Night Shyamalan film After Earth in 2013. He's also known as a gifted music artist, with a lot of promise for his future. With so much going on in his life professionally, this is not the best time for Jaden to become a father and he certainly doesn't need some personal drama getting in the way of his goals for the future.
3 Amy Schumer Is Paving The Way
It's common knowledge that women in Hollywood can have a difficult time breaking into the business and getting coveted roles but it's said that it's even harder for female comedians.
Standup comedy has been predominantly male for quite some time and it can be even harder for women that don't fit the mold when it comes to female celebrities.
Amy Schumer isn't seen as one of the world's most beautiful women and she's also not the standard size zero in Hollywood, but that hasn't stopped her from becoming the next big obsession on both the small and big screen. The public has really embraced her style of comedy and it seems like her professional career is really starting to bloom. This is the time for Schumer to strike while the iron is hot, rather than take some time off to start a family and have kids.
2 Cardi B Is Not Fit To Be A Mom Just Yet
When Cardi B was first shown on Love & Hip Hop, she instantly became a favorite with viewers. Her over-the-top personality just seemed to draw fans to her and people loved the way she was unapologetic about being a stripper. As her appearances on the show continued, people were able to see her struggle in finding producers that believed in her talent and how driven she was in pursuing a career in music. While there were many viewers that believed in her talent, no one could have imagined how huge she would become or how successful "Bodak Yellow" would be with fans of rap music.
Nowadays, she is being compared to other huge music stars like Nicki Minaj, but that doesn't mean that she's ready to become a mother.
Her social media presence may be comical, but it's not depicting the best environment to raise a child and it also wouldn't be the best thing for her career either.
1 Selena Gomez
When Selena Gomez first became known to the world as a young actress and aspiring singer, people couldn't get enough of her baby face and her sparkling personality. Yet, the perception of her has started to change over the years and people stopped seeing her as hugely talented and started seeing her more as an opportunist that often milked the media. From her high-profile relationship with Justin Bieber to her brief fling with The Weeknd, the public started to wonder whether or not she truly had talent or was just trying to get free publicity in order to sell music.
During this scrutiny, Gomez went public with the fact that she was diagnosed with Lupus and she had received a kidney from her best friend, Francia Raisa.
Regardless of what you may think of Gomez as a person, her medical condition puts her in no condition to run off to start having children. This is the time when she should focus on her health and putting out music that can quell all of the naysayers.
