What do Duchess Kate, Prince William, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West all have in common? Their pictures are on every website and magazine as the world follows their first pregnancy. Like many celebrities, they are sharing their life experiences with you. You hear about the announcement, the first bump, and even the cravings. These couples are excited to meet their first bundle of joy, whom will surely change their lives forever. If you are a parent, you know what I mean.
It seems as though pregnancy is a rising trend these days. 2013 is set to make Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince Charles new parents. Jessica Simpson is expecting for the second time. Lisa Ling is welcoming in a baby girl, and Kristen Bell is a first time mommy!! More celebrity parents who are expecting include Holly Madison, Shakira, and Beverly Mitchell!
Celebrities, movie stars, and reality show figures are people, just like everyone else. Their first experience becoming a new parent is scary exciting and even a little worrisome, as it is for any parent, famous or not. As a communication expert, what I enjoy the most are the stories about the first "meeting" of the baby. This is when LANGUAGE begins.
Often, people assume that language starts when a baby begins to make verbal cues. Mistakenly, they have confused it with the concept of speech. Language occurs in the first moment a baby sees his dad or mom. The precious look in their eyes that say: "You are my sweet little child, I have been waiting for you all of my life!" That is pure communication, and does not require any verbal words. It is just pure visual connection!
As you follow Kim Kardashian, Duchess Kate and Shakira, a family member, your best friend or even yourself, during this beautiful mommy-to-be journey, remember that the most fascinating moment of all is the first meeting. There will be an entire conversation; it will be the most meaningful conversation in the world, and it is by all means, speechless.
