Celebrity breakups are not new to us, and we can almost say it’s something that has become part of our daily lives. Just like normal people, our stars also fall in love, the only clause is the fact that due to their type of lifestyle which is somewhat public amongst many other factors, sometimes these celebrity relationships don’t work out, and that is fine. What is not so nice is when these celebrities breakups involve a third party, in this case, a child, and then they go as far as throwing each other under the bus and creating scandals. It’s surprising that a number of celebrity couples broke up while pregnant. Well, some of the male celebrity ran from the relationship when they found out their spouses were pregnant while others were ignorant, and didn’t know a baby was on the way before splitting.
Below are some of the not so lucky couples who had untimely breakups.
1. Heidi Klum And Flavio Briatore
On the category of the not so nice celebrities who ended things with their pregnant girlfriends, we have the Italian businessman Flavio Briatore who broke up with Heidi Klum in 2003 while she was pregnant for him. It was reported that Flavio didn’t regret his action because Heidi had already made up her mind to have her then-love interest Seal become the child’s father.
2. Denise Richards And Charlie Sheen
This particular relationship caused quite an unexpected scandal. The couple got divorced even though Richards was pregnant with their second child and according to ‘Ranker.com:’
“Richards released divorce papers exposing that Sheen had tried forcing her to abort her first daughter.”
Well, that was one hell of a shocker for us all.
3. Tiki Barber And Ginny Cha
Now, this particular celebrity really messed up. It seems like even marriage cannot hold a man if he is determined on acting otherwise. Back in 2010, NFL player Tiki Barber who was then married to the famous Ginny Cha who also happened to be his wife for eleven good years got dumped by him after she got pregnant and was expecting their babies (twins). The plot twist was that Barber left her for a woman that was allegedly ten years younger than his wife. Ginny filed for divorce before she put to bed and the sad part is that she was ordered by her doctor to be on bed rest when Barber started acting up.
4. Kelly Rutherford And Daniel Giersch
Well till now we are not quite sure what really went wrong between former ‘Gossip Girl’ matriarch Kelly Rutherford and her ex-husband Daniel Giersch. The couple who already had a kid together as at 2008 suddenly split up. Reports say that it was actually Kelly who filed for divorce. Apparently, a month after the actress announced that she was expecting her second child in December 2008 she filed for a divorce from her husband, Daniel Giersch.
5. Bridget Moynahan And Tom Brady
In the case of these two ex-love birds, gorgeous actress Bridget Moynahan didn’t find out she was pregnant until after she split up with the handsome Tom Brady. Well, we can’t blame Tom for moving on because he obviously didn’t know he was going to become a father. Reports from ‘Ranker.com’ tell us that when Bridget realized she was pregnant, she had split up with Tom, and Tom had already moved on with Gisele Bundchen.
6. Mel B. And Eddie Murphy
The talented actor -Eddie Murphy always cracks us up with his amazing stunts. The actor pulled a real-life stunt in 2007 which caused quite a scandal back then. He dumped Mel when she was expecting their daughter, and he denied the paternity of the child until a paternity test was finally taken which proved he was the father. Even after all the drama, Eddie Murphy did not get involved with Mel B nor the Child until 2010 when he finally started getting involved in his daughter's life.
7. Mary-Louise Parker And Billy Crudup
Another celebrity who did not do so well is Billy Crudup. The relationship of Mary-Louise Parker and Billy Crudup is one of those celebrity relationships we all thought would last, but sadly things ended on a sour note. Apparently, Mary-Louise got pregnant while they were still together, but that didn’t stop Billy from breaking things up and moving on with Claire Danes back in 2003.
8. Kevin Federline And Shar Jackson
It’s amazing how people in general, not just celebrities can be so cold towards the people they claim to love and care for. Federline left pregnant Shar who was carrying their second child for Britney Spears, and such behavior was not taken well my fans.
9. Michelle Tomlinson And Donnie Wahlberg
‘Nation Enquirer’ revealed that the ‘Blue Bloods’ star, Wahlberg got his mistress Michelle Tomlinson pregnant but nothing was confirmed. This unconfirmed news has left us uncertain about what really happened with these two, however, there were tittles-tattles everywhere that Wahlberg dumped his Canadian mistress, Tomlinson after she told him, she was pregnant. Harsh!
10. Diplo And Kathryn Lockhart
This particular news has not been entirely confirmed, but it seems like famous producer Diplo might have left his ex Kathryn Lockhart while she was pregnant with his second child.
11. Elizabeth Hurley And Steve Bing
Here is another celebrity relationship that didn’t last long. The actress and model dated the millionaire for about 18 months and from the looks of things they were very serious about their relationship but sometimes even the good things don’t last. Sadly what brought about the end of the relationship was the fact that the actress got pregnant and apparently the millionaire wasn’t ready to become a father. Reports claimed that Steve doubted the paternity of the child hence he was not ready to accept the responsibility of the child. However, he was wrong, he was the father after a DNA test proved the child was his, he publicly offered to provide for the child but Hurley refused him. We don’t blame her.
12. Keshia Knight Pulliam And Ed Hartwell
Keshia Knight and Ed Hartwell's relationship was one of the famous relationships we always thought would make it because of how cute they looked together but sadly we were all wrong. NFL linebacker Ed Hartwell broke up with Keshia on July 2016 after he found out she was pregnant even though he was informed that the child was his. According to ‘Ranker.com’ the NFL player denies everything, and doubts if the baby is truly his even though a paternity test had not been conducted.
13. Kelly And Nas
The famous hip hop singer Nas and the gorgeous singer Kelly were together and got married for a while, and their relationship was blessed with a lovely child. But later on in 2010, when Kelly was pregnant with their second child, they split up. According to reports, Kelly divorced Nas because he was cheating on her and that things between them weren’t so smooth anymore. Kelly later wrote on her Instagram after the divorce:
"I divorced his cheating behind lol I don't want him back at all."
14. Christina Milian And Terius Nash
According to ‘ranker.com,’ the hip-hop artist Terius Nash popularly known as ‘The dream’ filed for divorce from the actress Christina Milian just nine days before she put to bed back in 2010, well notwithstanding the actress bounced back and as today she is a very successful mother.
