Pickler also had some pretty stern words for those who are cavalier about parenthood. "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," she noted. "They don't take into consideration that it's a very selfish thing to do if you're not prepared and ready."
"It's almost like a fad," she added.
It's not too surprising that Pickler has these strong thoughts about parenthood, given her own background--as all her fans know, she was raised by her grandparents due to her own parents' inability to provide a stable environment.
Besides this, Pickler is very young--she'll turn 25 on Tuesday. What's the rush, right? She's also in the middle of working on her third album, which has no release date yet, so she probably wants to finish cooking up that baby first!
No doubt Pickler's fellow recent country brides Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and LeAnn Rimes are all facing the same "baby fever" questions...but I'm willing to bet they're all going to take it nice and slow regarding family planning. And I personally think this is the smart way to go. Plenty of time, girls--work on your careers now!
