It must be nice to be a Howie girl and never have to worry about your favorite pissing people off or doing anything remotely controversial LOL.

Does anyone wonder if Nick dropped the baby bombshell this week to try to distract us from the Brian situation? LOL  Remember how he announced those streams in the studio and virtual meet and greets over the summer right at the height of the Leighanne drama?  Some of us wondered then if he was trying to distract us.  The timing may just be coincidence, but even though I'm not Team Brian on this, there's a part of me that wants to think Nick is trying to return the favor for Brian having his back over the MS allegations.  Of all people, Nick knows what it's like to have fans turn on him.

He's being Brian's good guardian angel again. Since whatever his good shoulder is doing isn't working, he's gone to the "I can be very distracting" tactics. Is it working? It distracted me from thinking about Brian in the back of my head.

People think it would be fun to be a bird because you could fly. But they forget the negative side, which is the preening.

Howie's just happy to keep Howie-ing! Maybe Brian decided he needed some limelight over quarantine and snapped, haha.

Kevin doesn't seem like the type to passive agressively tweet around Brian when he's mad. I'm willing to bet that the group has started discussing it, but don't have a definitive address planned yet. I feel like it's more Kevin's way of saying "I see you all calling out Brian and this is how I feel about it as well" without starting some kind of twitter feud that would be all the more damaging. Whatever the response is, it should come from the group.

I doubt they would cancel the tour.

I'm very excited for them! I'm sending them all my well wishes for a healthy third trimester! But I'm also a twinge jealous, and I don't know if saying that makes me seem like an a-hole or not. It was definitely a weird time for me to receive the news, personally.

Yeah, I agree.  It probably has been discussed, and I do think Kevin is in touch with how the fans are feeling and feels the same way.

Aww, no, it doesn't make you seem like an a-hole at all.  It can be hard to hear happy news about pregnancies and babies if you're struggling to conceive or dealing with a loss.  I'm not sure what you're going through, but I'm sorry for whatever it is. *hugs*

It's working for me!  Keep on distracting, Carter!

Nick's basically been distracting me through the pandemic, so I'm glad he's putting the skill to good use, haha. Keep going, Nick!

It's just subtle enough for twitter, I think.

Thanks for the hug! Smiley *hug* I'm actually doing a lot better after I got the chance to read the People article, it was just a lot this morning to be bombarded with screenshots of his instagram, haha.  Lauren saying (i'm paraphrasing, not direct quoting here) "You can do everything right and things can still go wrong, so I had to learn to let go of the control aspect. Things work out when they're meant to" made me feel a lot better about everything. Such a well spoken lady, love her.

I've had several of these for days. They definitely buried the "Nick talks about his diet" from GQ and "AJ discusses sobriety with so and so" articles that I actually did want to read in my curated news feed from my phone. I would read that Kevin one though if it isn't just listing replies to Brian's original tweet.

I'm glad it made you feel a little better.  She has definitely been through it and come out the other side, thankfully.  I hope you will too.

Yes!  Whereabouts are you?

Good old Rocky Mountain high Colorado.

I was actually horrified to find out it was here, but what can you do? 2020, haha.

Thanks. Smiley In general, I'm glad more people are talking about issues with fertility/conception/et al. And I'm glad she made it through and got to have this special surprise after everything. Smiley

I agree.  More people have dealt with it than we realize because they don't talk about it.  I appreciate how open Lauren and Nick have been.  Kristin and Kevin have also talked about their issues with infertility.

It was nice getting that great news from the Carterís. You do have to wonder if he did time it out this way. I am glad they have been so open about their issues. Iím sorry if youíve had to go through something like that too, Dee.

I have also enjoyed watching Kevinís tweets today. Iím sure they all have known about his political beliefs and how into them he is long before any of us became aware. I bet Kevin was annoyed that he decided to make them so public though. Thankfully theyíve been pretty quiet since the Parler debacle. Letís hope none of them were at the coup!

I hope more of these types of things become less stigmatized. Like, let's have more conversations about racial equality and fertility issues and gender equality and make things like over zealous politics become more stigmatized.

Thanks for the support y'all. While there's a history of miscarriage on both sides of our family, it's so far just a lot of lack of success and feels like something, but end up being falsified hopes (feels like the best wording). There's still lots of time.

Yo, a stewing Kevin is a grumpy Kevin, haha. He'll fly to Atlanta soon and knock some sense into Brian the good old fashioned Kentuckian way.  Wink Also if Nick's become clairvoyant in addition to everything else he's got going on, I feel like there's a whole new fanfic there. You can also blame him for my distracting reappearance, so I guess he works in mysterious ways... *shrug*

Great news for Nick and Lauren, I knew it was going to be another baby, I even suggested twins but was wrong about that lol.

Yes, maybe the timing was to distract attention from Brian for a while.

Julie, you are so right about all those fans who will be snapping up the meet and greets after declaring they are no longer fans.  Makes me laugh how hypocrital some people can be.
