Celebrities may have personal assistants, trainers, make-up artists and stylists, but many of them are just like their average American counterparts–they have a hard time conceiving. In 1995, “Days of Our Lives” star Diedre Hall chronicled her struggle with infertility in a made-for-TV movie called “Never Say Never: The Diedre Hall Story.” More recently “The Internet’s Most Downloaded Woman,” Cindy Margolis, went public with her conception conundrums.
With the tabloid’s latest overwhelming obsession with the “bumpwatch,” even stars who claim to have conceived the old fashioned way spark speculation: Tongues wagged when Julia Roberts became pregnant with twins at age 36, many “experts” speculating that the star had to be on fertility meds.
So with all the prenatal peer pressure, who can blame singer, actress, and fashionista Jennifer Lopez for allegedly turning to a less conventional method to get pregnant: scientology. An insider close to the entertainer tells Life & Style magazine that Leah Remini, J. Lo’s good friend, “King of Queens” star, and scientologist, “confided to Jennifer that the religion helped her conceive.”
She’s starting to understand the cleansing process. It’s all about putting the energy where you want it,” the insider said.
J. Lo, 37, isn’t the first celebrity to explore “alternative” fetility treatments. Sharon Stone reportedly tried traditional African fertility dances and, according to recent reports, Madonna gave Ayurvedic pills from India a try to conceive at the age of 46.
But don’t expect J. Lo and Marc Anthony to become the next Scientology power couple ala Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes or John Travolta and Kelly Preston. The article goes on to say that husband “Marc [Anthony], a devout Catholic, isn’t into the religion but doesn’t mind his wife studying it: ‘He’s willing to let Jen do what she needs to make things happen.’”
