Kris Humphries wanted babies with Kim Kardashian. Not sometime down the road, the newlywed wanted to have babies sooner rather than later with his new bride. Thanks to Kim's decision to stay on the pill and skip the babies, the NBA star literally dodged a baby bullet when it came down to his 72-day marriage to the Kardashian family.
In the latest episode of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" the couple got down to business to talk about their baby dreams. It was a conversation that probably should have happened before they made the decision to walk down the aisle and pledge their eternal love for one another.
At first it seemed they were on the same page with Kim announcing she was ready to start trying for a baby with Kris responding, "I'm excited. I really want to [have kids]." Fast forward a few minutes and it all starts to breakdown not over the question of whether to have kids, but where they should raise them. "I want my kids to grow up with my sisters' kids," the reality star announced when she heard her husband's desire to raise his children in Minnesota. "They could spend a month in the summer in Minnesota. I'm not moving to Minnesota."
His bride's reluctance to relocate to the Midwest did nothing to deter the basketball player from his desire to start a family. He replied, "I don't want to wait. I want to have kids right away." In the end, it was just another disagreement that he was destined to lose and Kim would go on to file for divorce weeks later.
The news that kids were a major factor in the breakdown of the marriage of the reality princess and her made-for-TV groom is no surprise. Babies have brought about the end of more than one celebrity couple and will definitely play a factor in some future couplings. Here are a few of the celebrity couples who called it quits when it came down to kids:
Heidi Klum and Flavio Friator: The supermodel was in a year long relationship with the 53-year-old managing director of Renault's Formula One racing team. It all ended when the "Project Runway" host announced she was expecting her first child. Daughter Leni arrived in May 2004 with her dad far from the picture. These days her biological dad is not involved in her life and she calls her mom's husband, Seal, daddy.
Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady: Not even a baby could save the relationship of the "Blue Bloods" actress and her QB boyfriend once a supermodel entered the picture. Two months after their two year relationship ended, Moynahan announced that she was more than two months pregnant with the New England Patriots QB's baby. Unfortunately by that time he had already moved on with his now-wife supermodel Gisele Bundchen. Baby John Edward Thomas Moynahan arrived a few months later. These days Bridget is raising her son as a single mother while maintaining a civil relationship with her ex for the sake of their child.
January Jones and ?: We are quite sure who to blame in the case of the "Mad Men" actress and her itty bitty bundle of joy. All we know is that the actress announced her pregnancy a few months after separating from boyfriend Jason Sudeikis and has decided to stay mum on the father of her son Xander Dane Jones. With no daddy in the picture, the "X-Men: First Class" star is raising her son as a single mom.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston: They both talked about their desires to have a family in the press, but the kids never quite made it into the picture. The "Money Ball" star met his match with partner Angelina Jolie and her ready-made-family on the set of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith". The "Friends" actress has retained her single status and was recently named the "Sexiest Woman of All Time" by Men's Health magazine.
