If you loved the movie "She's All That" in the '90s, chances are you couldn't get enough of the starring actress, Rachael Leigh Cook. While she falls into the category of "Where are they now?" celebrities, it appears that the media is still adamant about keeping tabs on Cook - so much so that the paparazzi are documenting every part of her pregnancy calendar!
Cook announced her pregnancy to the world in May, according to The Daily Mail, and it seems like her due date is already just around the corner! Recently, Cook was spotted allegedly cleaning out her home in Los Angeles. The 33-year-old wore a casual pair of denim jeans and an oversized lavender T-shirt to cater to her large baby bump. After taking some belongings out of her house, she made a trip down to Goodwill, where she donated excess items.
Cook has been married to Daniel Gillies since 2004, who is best known for his role on "The Vampire Diaries." She previously told People magazine that she wanted to take the situation slow before she introduced children into the mix.
"We got married incredibly fast," Cook told People. "We got engaged after dating for maybe five months and we got married a couple of months after that. There was just so much more both of us wanted to do. We wanted to travel and accomplish a lot more in our professional lives."
Cook has plenty of time left in her personal life and her career, meaning she should be able to put forth a valiant effort toward parenthood!
Am I ready to have a baby?
Whether you have a strong dedication to your job or you're simply unsure how you'll fare as a mother, you might want to put off baby-making for a while - but is it possible to wait too long? The Atlantic reported that women naturally begin to decline in fertility as they age, meaning it could be more difficult to conceive later in life. However, this doesn't have to interrupt the plans you've already made for your family-to-be.
Talk to your doctor about your personal situation and current health for more insight into your concerns. He or she can let you know what your odds are as you look to become pregnant in the future.
