Not too long ago, Megan Fox opened up about her private life to Cosmopolitan and revealed her desire to be a mother. She said, “I want at least two, probably three [kids], I’ve always been maternal.” It looks like those dreams are now finally coming true. Fox and her husband Brian Austin Green are expecting their first child together, as confirmed by several sources to UsMagazine.com. Fox has been seen around L.A. with a baby bump, doing little to conceal her pregnancy.
How will having your first child affect your relationship?
Having a baby can add beauty to you and your partner’s lives, but it also can be straining. Here are some ways to find a balance between the two so that you can maintain a healthy relationship:
1. Baby comes first: Before having a child, your partner was your whole world. Once you have your first child together, your baby becomes your first priority and then some. However, don’t make the baby the only thing you care about. Be sure to share your love with both your baby and your partner.
2. Less time for romance: When you have a baby, you won’t have much time to sleep, let alone have a romantic date night. Don’t get too caught up in the stress. After all, you still deserve time with your partner. Trade in your lavish dinner outings for quiet movie nights. These can be equally as romantic and intimate, without keeping you far from your child.
3. Money strains: Money can cause major problems in any relationship, and having another person to care for means these stresses are only going to grow. Babies need cribs, toys and the like, and their costs can add up very quickly. Make sure you and your partner make a solid financial plan and begin setting aside money before the baby is even born.
