Celebrities won't admit to NICU babies

C and I were doing research last night for my children's picture book. And we discovered that as far as we know, no current celebrity admits to have their baby in the NICU. Julia Robert seemed the most obvious candidate, because she had twins 6 weeks early though they were relatively large at 6lb.

I sent an email to the Celebrity Babies blog to see if I had perhaps missed these NICU babies.

According to stats I read on NICU sites, 9% of babies are admitted to the NICU, so then we should hear of at least one celebrity with a baby in the NICU. Or are celebrity babies blessed with better health than we are? I think not. What do you think?

It looks like we're both right, Brigid. I received this reply from Blogging Babies:
"We don't really cover this. This information is not typically publicized."

Celebs with babies in the NICU
Melissa Gilbert and her husband Bruce Boxlietner had a premature infant (27 wks, I think)in the NICU. And there was a WNBA player, Helen Darling, who had triplets who I think were in the NICU for a bit, too. She did a lot of work with the March of Dimes prematurity prevention campaign.
