A lot of times it's envy speaking in those nasty comments. As if they're saying "How dare this old guy take this young bombshell of a woman. She should be with me."

Not to mention that there often are quite pronounced age gaps between spouses among celebrities. Just look at Harrison Ford & Calista Flockheart (22 years apart) or David Foster & Katherine McPhee (34 years apart)

Part of the issue is that she's still so young. In your examples the women were way into their 30s when those relationships started. Alaina is in her early 20s. Not saying that the relationship is doomed or whatever but the idea of dating someone as old as your parents, especially at that age, is a bit *yikes* for many people.

It is just as fair to ask if she would be with him if he were a 44 year old (or 24 for that matter) former child. Star designing bathrooms for Koehler. Hopefully they both believe they have found their soul mate and that is why they are together. Johnny does not appear t have been in a serious relationship in years, so this has to be something special to him.   

So special he's knocked her up out of wedlock and is boasting about it.

I bragged about becoming a father for the first time too. Almost all the guys I knew bragged about it

I don’t really disagree (although folks n my family mostly have more than 20 years between generations.  But her father is in his mid 70s (author who writes about his experience as a Green Baret in VietNam):  Probably about the same age Johnny’s father would be if alive and about 30 years older than  Johnny so over 50 when she was born.

Should he hide it or deny it?  What is the appropriate amount of happy to feel?  What is worse Johnny boasting about it or someone condemning them for having a wanted child.

It really depends on personal experience. For example their age difference is exactly the age difference between me and my dad so anyone of 20+ years older is parents age territory. But if she grew up with a dad who's 50 years older then obviously she feels different about that.

lol yeah, "out of wedlock" is not a drama anymore.

Also to add: I'm not particularly worried here cause Johnny seems to be a decent person. I'm sure he'll be a good dad and everything.

He should be ashamed his offspring is illegitimate. A decent man would hide it until he's married his girlfriend. It's worse to be boasting about it and it's right that he should be condemned.

And that is bad why?

I don't really understand if that comment is meant sarcastically or not. A lot of people have children out of wedlock. What's wrong with that?

Nothing is wrong with that, unless you have an extremely conservative, reactionary mindset that's stuck in the 1950's.

I think it is a big assume to guess that she would have wanted a rushed engagement/wedding that would have had  to take place before anyone found out she is pregnant.  It takes two to get knocked up.  But it also takes two to get married.

Which way too many people in the US have unfortunately. The sad thing is, a lot of those people wish back a time that never truly existed, apart from on TV.

Hindsight is always 20/20. The “time” they are longing for is from the 1950’s/1960’s when there was much civil unrest, the Cold War, the Vietnam War and so much more. Many are looking back through a fog of misinformation and maybe to the innocence of their childhoods when the worries were carried by parents and older people.

I think there are cultural and generational differences in play here. It has become more common to have children without getting married and marriage does not have the same importance as it used to have. Some people do not want to get married, they don't see a need or don't believe in it. Some of them have children. They may stay together for life, they may have a relationship as good or better than that of a married couple.

That's 50's to earlier 80's thinking. Things are seen differently these days.

Personally I don't think there's such a thing as an illegitimate child

At least a little nerdy, Avery = Avery Brooks = Captain Benjamin Sisko on Deep Space 9.
