What's the message that celebs are sending us about pregnancy?
Jennifer Lopez has dodged pregnancy rumors for months, and now the Latina diva is finally ready to fess up to the baby bump that she's (allegedly) got. Lopez plans to announce that she and husband Marc Anthony are expecting during the couple's concert at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night in her hometown of New York City. What's with the secrecy? Haven't we just been through this with Nicole Richie?
Maybe this celebs are facing the angst so many women encounter when deciding when to tell their employers they are pregnant. It's that fine line between wanting to be sure the pregnancy is going to work out and trying to not to act like you are keeping a big secret from your boss and maybe even your customers, or in J-Lo's case, her fans.
There is no perfect time to announce a pregnancy in the workplace. Just remember when you break the news, the receiver of the news may be happy for you, but what they are really thinking is, "how is this going to affect me." And you, like J-Lo, must be prepared to give an answer.
