'Is There Ever a Perfect Time?' - LeAnne Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Decide to Stop Using Birth Control


LeAnn Rimes ditched her birth control as she was told on her reality show on Thursday night that she could not afford to wait much longer to try for a baby.

The singer underwent fertility testing on the latest episode of LeAnn & Eddie on VH1 to make sure she is able to conceive with husband Eddie Cibrian.


Rimes consulted a doctor in Los Angeles after her mother told her of her own 12-year struggle to conceive 'Miracle' LeAnn.


The subject of LeAnn's fertility was brought up by her mother, Belinda, who told the singer she was ready for a granddaughter.

'It would be fun to have a little girl, but I do not know if I am quite ready to do that yet,' said LeAnn.

'What if I have to go on stage and Eddie is not there because he is working?', the singer asked.

LeAnn then addressed her relationship with her mother.

'Over the years our relationship has been evolving. We definitely butted heads for a very long time and I know she kinda felt she lost me at a certain age to the rest of the world,' she said.

'I started touring when I was 13 and I was never home to have a real family life and I know she wants that for me,' LeAnn said.

LeAnn's mother reminded her that she was now 31 and that she herself took 12 years of trying to conceive her daughter.

'I had a lot of issues and the doctors told me I would never have a child,' her mother confided.

'You were a miracle, they don't know how I got pregnant,' she told her famous daughter.

After the conversation LeAnn admitted she needed to know if she would have the same hereditary fertility issues.

'I knew my mom had difficulty having me, but I never really knew how difficult it was. Eddie and I have talked about waiting a little bit longer before we try to have kids,' she said.

'It had never popped into my head that maybe I will have the same trouble she did,' she admitted.

LeAnn later discussed the situation with Eddie and the singer admitted she was 'freaked out' about possible fertility issues.

He urged her to get tested.

During a visit to a specialist Rimes had bloodwork done, a genetic screening and an ultrasound.

'Given my mom's history, it does make you wonder if I waited too long,' admitted Rimes.

'If I find out that I can't have kids that will be really tough,' she said.

While she waited for the results to come back Rimes took her mind off things by taking a hip-hop dance class, going bowling with Eddie and baking cookies.

After several days on edge she got the results back.

'She told me that my [fertility] levels are on the lower side of normal and that we should not be waiting very much longer. Does that freak you out?' LeAnn asked her husband.

Rimes then told Eddie that she felt she should stop taking birth control, but he seemed to have reservations about the quick timescale.

'Don't be an ass. It truly hurts when you feel like you and your husband are not on the same page for something that is so important,' admitted Rimes.

When Rimes said she could be pregnant in a month, Eddie asked if they were ready for the commitment.

'Yes. I know we were not planning on having a child right now, but I also do not want to miss what possibly could be my only opportunity to have a child naturally,' LeAnn said.

'Who knows how long it will take us to try? If I wait too long I will be more pissed off about not being able to than having it a little too soon,' she said.

In the end Eddie agreed that LeAnn should ditch birth control.

'I mean is there ever a perfect time? I know I do want to have a child with LeAnn and if this is a decision we have to make right now because of her fertility then I say we should just do it,' Eddie told the cameras.

Meanwhile Eddie introduced their dog, Precious, to a dog life coach to deal with suspected depression

'Do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound right now? Only in L.A,' said a skeptical Eddie as LeAnn organized sessions with a dog counsellor.

The therapist told Eddie that the pooch looked 'stressed' and put that down to the behavior of the couple's other dogs.

Eddie absorbed the dog lessons and the episode ended with him trying some of the techniques on LeAnn.

I used to say I would never have kids, because I don't like children, even some of my nieces and nephews I can't stand tbh. But with time, as I came to value the relationship with my mother more and more, I decided I will need to have kids eventually.

(Not saying this will happen to everyone, just my experience)

i always thought i would be ready to have kids around the same time my mom had my older brother (28), but now that i'm in my mid-twenties, that sounds way too soon.
hoot 22nd-Aug-2014 03:43 pm (UTC)
My mom had me when she was 28 and I remember thinking that sounded so old, especially since most of my friends were born when their parents were in their early to mid twenties.

I just turned 28 on Sunday though and I STILL feel like I'm too young to have a baby, lol.
ellie_andrews 22nd-Aug-2014 03:54 pm (UTC)
My mom had me when she was 20 so when I was little that's when I wanted kids too. LMAO
tyrion_is_hbic 22nd-Aug-2014 04:42 pm (UTC)
Thats cos it is! My twenties were just one big long party. Then my thirties were great - married and having fun with my best friend, had a bit of money, didn't need to go crazy partying any more but travelled lots......

I'm now having a baby at 39. I'll never resent this child for taking away my freedom - I've basically had 20 completely carefree years. I'm totally ready now.
elvenqueen86 22nd-Aug-2014 04:59 pm (UTC)
Same. My mom had me when she was 27. I'm 28 and I'm still not ready for kids.
anolinde 22nd-Aug-2014 05:09 pm (UTC)
My parents were already married at my age and I can't even imagine that, let alone kids.
maybejessmaybe 22nd-Aug-2014 05:21 pm (UTC)
saaaame. i'm 27 and getting married next month and i don't want kids right now (maybe ever). i always thought (back in high school and college) i'd have at least one kid before 30. nooooope.
nicenicegirl 22nd-Aug-2014 06:00 pm (UTC)
i had my son when i was 28, and that's pretty much when i planned on starting to have kids. it's interesting because even when i was 27 i was like "nope still don't want kids! i wanna have fun and not be tied down!" but something just clicked when i was 28 and i was like "ok let's do this!"

my mother had my sister when she was 19 and my sister had her first child when she was 18 so i was the late bloomer apparently.

I've been watching their show. Such messes. Leann is heinously ugly inside and out. Eddie seems kind of checked out. I can't wait for their messy divorce.

And I don't want to have kids for like 10 years. Maybe when I'm 35. Sometimes I think I don't want them at all because I love my freedom so much. I'd love to just get married and be able to travel and party forever lol.

This is how I feel. my girlfriends and I are having a drunken ~adult sleepover tonight, because the one whose place we're staying at couldn't get a sitter. Meanwhile, I can pack up and go and drink and travel whenever I want, without worrying about that, and I love it. Lol

Plus, my husband and I have so much fun right now - just the two of us - that I'm never 100% sure if I want to add kids to this mix or not. I go back and forth.

lol NUNCA TBH!

my parents are out of town and as big sis~ i'm in charge of my 5 year old bro. its been 5 days and im over it. kids suck.
ljok_0 22nd-Aug-2014 03:37 pm (UTC)
my aunt was the oldest of 6 kids and she doesn't have any kids now because of it! she says she loves all of her nieces and nephews but loves that she can just enjoy the fun parts of having a kid and then send us on our merry way at the end of the day haha.
peggybundy 22nd-Aug-2014 04:01 pm (UTC)
lmaoooo aw, i don't blame her tbh. that would be me too.
perznpoprietess 22nd-Aug-2014 03:34 pm (UTC)
the perfect time is when you aren't clinically insane and with a man who married you for money.
rachem_chul 22nd-Aug-2014 08:47 pm (UTC)
I laughed way too loud at this.
vivalakeyana 22nd-Aug-2014 03:35 pm (UTC)

Um, still deciding. I do know that if I don't have one by age 35 - I'm 28 now, my husband turns 31 in a few months - I ain't having them.
ljok_0 22nd-Aug-2014 03:35 pm (UTC)
granted i'm financially stable, i think i would like to have my first kid around the age of 28. my parents got married when they were 24 but waited until they were 33 to have me (first & only kid). everyone thought my mom was never going to have a kid or there was something wrong bc she waited so long. people have always been rude about when they think other people should have kids i guess.
vehiclesshockme 22nd-Aug-2014 03:38 pm (UTC)
My mom was 23 when she married my dad and I can barely wrap my head around the fact that when she was as old as I am now she had a four year old (and that I vividly remember my mom's 30th birthday party). Like it seems crazy to me. I'm just glad that I have cousins who are considerably older than me so I don't have grandparents being pushy about me having kids.
ellie_andrews 22nd-Aug-2014 03:40 pm (UTC)
for some reason I don't remember my parents' 30th but I remember my dad's 27th D: D:
ljok_0 22nd-Aug-2014 03:42 pm (UTC)
i feel like until you are the age that your parents got married at or had kids, you don't realize how young it is! i really just LOVE children (i feel like that's a rarity on ONTD lol) and when i'm 28 i'll have been with my BF/future husband for 10 years, so i don't want to wait as long but still never before 25.
whereisthewine 22nd-Aug-2014 03:57 pm (UTC)
I know someone who was married with a baby and a flat (albeit rented, not a thirty year mortgage or anything) and in full-time education before they were twenty.

How they're even managing with that I don't know. Their coping skills must be amazing.

I'm 28 and my cousin's wife asked me "when are you going to have kids?? I had 3 when I was your age." It made me so furious. I'm amazed I didn't rip her face off.
coutureable 22nd-Aug-2014 04:13 pm (UTC)
I'm not rude about it but I honestly laugh at women who think they're going to wait until they're in their 30's to have their first kid and it's going to go swimmingly. After 35 you're high risk. Can you carry a pregnancy after 35 and be totally cool? Sure, my Mom did it at 41 with me. But it's very unlikely that you will go without SOME complications. And getting pregnant over 30 is not an easy feat for a lot of women.

Your biological ability to have children doesn't line up with some people's idea of when they're "ready" and no matter how much you tell them that they don't want to listen.
vehiclesshockme 22nd-Aug-2014 03:36 pm (UTC)
When you want them and you can actually afford them.
ellie_andrews 22nd-Aug-2014 03:36 pm (UTC)
I don't even want to think about potential fertility issues. :( I'm 28, have a shitty job, and I really want to be financially stable. I'm scared by the time that happens it might be too late. :\

Lol these messes shouldn't be reproducing.
bostongirl2003 22nd-Aug-2014 05:05 pm (UTC)
This whole show set up is interesting because there's been blind items for a while now that Eddie got a vasectomy so that he didn't have to worry about knocking up any of the women he cheats with.
derrobitch 22nd-Aug-2014 03:36 pm (UTC)
my mum didn't have me (her eldest btw) until she was like 33. so at least i know i'm not gonna have a crazy mother pressuring me to be married with babies by 25 like some of my friends have to deal with lol.

sometimes i think i don't want kids at all, other times i think i might want them in my mid-30s. thankfully i'm in my early 20s so i don't have to worry about this shit, it's the furthest thing from my mind.

I will never be able to get over how much these 2 look alike.
adult 22nd-Aug-2014 03:38 pm (UTC)
as for the OT question, does it matter?

I live in a small state where pretty much every girl over 21 has a kid already.

I just turned 25 and all the friends I graduated high school with already have 2-3 kids
