If your relationship isnt strong, a baby will throw it in a tailspin every time.

I feel bad for her. Keep it real for the sake of the babe. Starting to wonder if ANY Hollyweird marriage will ever last.

Looks like she got fat. She had an unusual beauty when she was young. Looks like it wore off.

That sucks. Especially since they have a kid together. I met Danica at a book signing a couple of years ago. It was a joy to meet her in person.

First dance was his song and now they are splitting up? Yup there's a song for that. "What would you do if I sang out of tune,Would you stand up and walk out on me ..."

That's a shame. His loss though. Not only is she beautiful, she's very intelligent. She has a PhD in Math and has a website where students can go for help with their studies, or at least she used to.
