It never ceases to amaze me how female celebrities can have multiple children with multiple men and are criticized, but when male stars do it, they’re applauded. Or, let’s put it another way: A woman has several children from different relationships, raises them, puts in the work and it’s not a big deal, she’s expected to do that. But a man does the same thing and he gets a standing ovation.
So with Rod Stewart (eight kids, five baby mamas) and Mick Jagger (ditto), the media thinks they’re the best things since sliced bread. Even Britney Spears’ ex Kevin Federline (six kids, three mothers) recently got softball treatment. Kate Winslet (three kids, three dads), not so much. It’s no surprise to me then that P Diddy (six kids, three mothers) is now being celebrated for being a great dad.
