First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby carriage. That old saying has never been more outdated than it is now! Nowhere is this more true than in Hollywood, where having a child after you get married is sometimes more of the exception than the rule! Take a look at our (long!) list of celebs who have had kiddos out of wedlock! Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
Perhaps the best Hollywood example that you don’t have to get married before having kids, Brad and Angie have been together since early 2006, and they have six kids in all. Maddox, Zahara and Pax are adopted, while Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne are the couple’s biological children. The two seem to still be growing strong, and have even been discussing marriage now that their kids are getting older.
These two are the proud parents of two beautiful boys, but they are not married. And, according to them, they might not ever be! These two have been together since way back in 2005, but they have been very vocal about NOT wanting to be married. They have both said that growing up, they were exposed to some “bad” marriages, and they didn’t want to relive that. Naomi also famously said:
“We’re very much together. We just don’t have that certificate, and that’s okay with both of us. Maybe one day, we’ll just wake up and go ‘Hey, let’s do this.’ And maybe not.”
Yes, now these two seem like the picture of happily wedded domestic bliss, but things weren’t always “by the book” for these two! When they married in 2005, Jennifer was already preggers with baby Violet. Eight years later, the couple now have another daughter, and just recently welcomed a baby boy!
When Halle’s first two marriages didn’t exactly pan out as she might have hoped, it would have been easy for her to throw in the towel. But, instead, she decided to have a baby with Gabriel Aubrey in 2008. Little Nahla was born in March, but things didn’t last for the couple. The two have actually been involved in a bitter and nasty custody battle for most of Nahla’s short life.
No repeats of the fiasco that was little sister Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries for these two. Kourtney and Scott have been together for years now, and have son Mason and baby daughter Penelope together, but are in no hurry to tie the knot, if they do at all. Kourt has said repeatedly that she doesn’t need a “piece of paper” for her to be happy with her family unit.
Yep, “TomKat” wasn’t married when little miss Suri Cruise was conceived. In fact, when they tied the knot in their exclusive, luxurious Italian wedding ceremony, baby Suri was six months old. Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t make the difference and Tom and Katie split in June of last year.
These two were having babies out of wedlock before it was cool! Together for nearly THIRTY years now, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have raised four kids together without tying the knot. And they don’t intend to. They say they have no plans to get married, and they just enjoy being a family without a piece of paper.
