Country superstar Kellie Pickler is about to turn 25 on Tuesday, June 28th, but the newlywed and hubby Kyle Jacobs aren’t planning on giving in to the pressure to start a family just because it seems like everyone else is doing it.
“I don’t think people realize … the responsibility that comes along with it,” the American Idol alum tells CMT Radio‘s Cody Alan. “It’s almost like a fad.”
A “fad” that’s not only hit Hollywood, but high schools across the country, too.
I don’t know what’s gotten into these kids where they feel like they have got to have a baby because their friend has one or whatever,” Pickler adds. “They don’t take into consideration that it’s a very selfish thing to do if you’re not prepared and ready.
“I take that very seriously, and when Kyle and I are ready, then we will maybe cross that bridge if it ever gets here,” says Kellie. “Maybe life gives us a surprise, but we’re married and we have stability in our lives, so if that does happen, we are prepared.”
CMT Radio’s Live with Cody Alan airs weeknight’s from 7pm to 12am EST.
