Dealing with infertility can be a very painful experience for any couple. But American news personality Spencer Blake and his wife Whitney have used humour to cope. Here’s how.
Spencer Blake and wife Whitney have been dealing with infertility. A problem that plagues many couples today. But this fun-filled couple decided to turn the sad event into a happy one.
During infertility awareness week, this couple got together and clicked pictures of themselves, spoofing popular baby announcement methods. They were very creative and imaginative when it came to shooting these pictures. Some pictures are funny, some are sarcastic and some poignant. They’ve shared it on their blog and the pictures have gone viral since.
You can view all the pictures here.
In the first “Bun in the oven” pic, they’ve stood in front of an oven looking happy in the first shot. In the second shot they are sad and the caption reads ” We’ve spent all the dough…still no bun in the oven”. In another version they’ve used Italian food as a prop.
Amazing creativity, isn’t it ? Totally, they’ve made six such hilarious infertility announcements.
How often do we come across people who address the ‘Infertility’ issue with some sensitivity? Newly married couples are generally bombarded with questions like ” When are you having your first baby?” and if they are finished with the first, then the next question pops up “When are you planning the second one”?
Spencer and Whitney have made light of the situation and they understand what emotional pain a couple goes through because they’ve dealt with it themselves.
The pictures have touched many couples and they’ve received numerous comments from couples who are dealing with or have dealt with this issue.
Spencer and Whitney are now proud parents of two little boys whom they adopted after struggling with ‘Infertility’ for years. They’ve sent out a message to all the childless couples that ‘Adoption’ is a great choice too.
As an ode to to this cool couple I’d like conclude with this quote, “Life isn’t about trying to weather the storm. It’s about learning to dance in the rain”.

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
