But if one looks at the world's most elite young women, it is remarkable how many of them have married and have children at a relatively young age.
Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and his model wife Lily Aldridge are expecting their first child together. 'We are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child together,' the pair confirmed in a statement to America's People magazine. 'We can’t wait to meet the new addition to our family.'It's not as if she's the only one. Pretty much all the younger generation of top models are all under thirty and either married or getting married. Marissa Miller, Adriana Lima, Brooklyn Decker, Miranda Kerr, and Alessandra Ambrosio are all demonstrating that there is a more satisfactory path than the conventional college, office, settle-after-thirty, one-child, struggle-with-debt plan that most parents recommend to their children.
Lingerie model Lily, 26, is thought to be three months pregnant.
And to those who point out that these young women are all very wealthy, I would merely point out that they can do anything they want... and what they want to do is not get a PhD or become an astronaut, but get married and have children. They're clearly not "putting their careers first", in fact, they're quite often putting their careers on hold in order to have their children.
No longer content with just impressing the world with their lithe, post-baby bodies, one Victoria's Secret model has upped the stakes on her fellow Angel mothers Doutzen Kroes, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima; Alessandra Ambrósio was pregnant when she modelled in last month's runway show.Even if the movie Idiocracy was correct and sub-normal are significantly outbreeding the intelligent and educated, at least we have the comfort of knowing that the supermodel genes will be passed on to future generations. Homo sapiens posterus may not be smart, but he'll be darned good-looking. And that might even be to his benefit, since he won't be able to think up a society anywhere nearly as self-destructive as the one the intellectuals of the West have produced over the last sixty years.
