Another kid for Pete?

There's nothing like adding a child into an already complex situation to make things really simple, is there? So it's nothing but good news that Pete Doherty's uncle reckons Doherty and Moss are about to have a kid:

Phil said he spoke to Doherty on Friday when the singer called him from Italy, where he is performing with his band Babyshambles. The rocker told him Kate had had a scan, everything was fine so they were happy to share the news.

Phil said: "They are both delighted and Pete sounded really excited."

Phil, 57, Pete's favourite uncle, added:

"That is why they want to get married. Pete told me they want a baby together to cement their marriage.

"I am made up for them. I wish them every success. They're so happy, they love each other. I can't wait for the wedding - we are just waiting for a date."

Well, yes, if we were liable to get an invite to a wedding where the bride counts her income in millions, we'd be quite excited, too. We might even consider wearing a tie for that one.

What we're more at a loss to understand is why you need a baby to get married - surely the ceremony is the bit which "cements" your marriage together and gives you a solid base from which to raise your kids? Expecting the kid to be the glue which holds your relationship together is hardly fair on the kid. And, since Pete hardly gets on with Lisa Moorish and Kate and Jefferson don't entirely hang out together, you'd think both partners would have spotted it doesn't work, either.

Still, the delivery will be interesting: Kate on her back screaming for morphine, with Pete yelling "actually, make that two..."

This is marvelous news, if true. I'd hate my children, when grown, not to have their own vaccuous media brat to either ignore or despise as they so choose.
