The quick and easy answer is that celebrities are not necessarily more fertile, or even more predisposed to avoid contraception than you and me. It just seems like celebrities spawn more often than the average person because we are more likely to hear about their process of procreation..all..the..time.

That's the media's fault for reporting it and America's fault for loving it. Supply and demand dictates that the celebrity press writes lots of baby stories because their audiences eat it up.

But lately it does seem like Hollywood is having a lot more babies than they were a couple of months ago. Let's go through the roster: Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard, Devon Aoki, Owen Wilson, Alicia Silverstone, Selma Blair and Tia Mowry.
