First, I’ll share one of your letters, and then some intriguing celebrity information that in a way relates to the letter:
I’m so confused. My husband wants me to become pregnant right away now. We’ve been married two years and actually, he’d have liked for me to have become pregnant the day we married! I work and so does he.
I wanted to wait these two years so we’d become financially more stable. All he talks about is having baby boys – you’d think he was planning a football team. I truly would like a baby girl.
Is there any way that Spirit could arrange for me to have a baby girl? I know this is asking an odd thing, but it’s something I’d really cherish. Is this even a good time to have a baby at all?
Dear Sweet Spirit Sherry:
No one that I know of can guarantee you the sex of your baby. As a matter of fact, my mother wanted a baby girl. When she went into labor and the doctor sent her to the hospital, the nurses said, “Oh, I think we’ve waited too long – we can already see a redheaded baby.” My mother said, “Oh, good – I hope it’s the little girl I want!”
But as we know, it turned out the opposite. Yet my mother and I could not have been closer and happier with each other.
Yes, Sherry, now is definitely the time for you to have a baby. Spirit’s advice to you is to go ahead with attempting the pregnancy. Pray that your pregnancy is safe and happy and that you deliver a healthy child. Your husband will be delighted at whatever sex the baby is, and you will be, too.
Interestingly enough, the celebrity story I have to share pertains to a baby girl.
I went to a celebrity event recently and among the memorable celebrities in attendance were my longtime friend, legendary child film star Margaret O’Brien and her best friend, Randal Malone, who has starred in countless horror films.
Margaret is kept busy with charity work and personal appearances and rarely comes out of retirement to act these days (a shame, in my opinion). However she does consent to act when she can do a project with Randal.
Their latest project is a horror film titled Frankenstein Rising, which has debuted in some locations and will have a general theatrical release soon.
Many years ago I was driving on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills and as I came to the shopping district I encountered a pregnant woman, crossing the street on foot against the light. It was the lovely Margaret O’Brien. I slammed on my brakes and yelled out the window, “Margaret! What’s the matter with you? Are you trying to kill yourself and your unborn baby girl?”
She stopped, looked at me and said, “Oh, hello Kenny.” She started to hurry on and then realized what I’d said and said, “Oh my God! I’m going to have a baby girl?”
Shortly thereafter a baby girl she named Mara came into the world. I kept hosting various talk shows of my own and once, when Mara was a toddler, I had her mom on as a guest. This was my show, “Kenny Kingston: A Psychic Experience.” Margaret brought little Mara out on the stage so I could meet the girl I’d predicted. I was so pleased to have her on the show.
She brought luck to me, as well. The show debuted on Saturday night at 10 p.m., opposite the new show (at the time) Fantasy Island. I must say that we held our own very well in the ratings.
Back to today — Randal has been close friends with many celebrated personalities, including comedienne Lucille Ball. Believe it or not, I had to turn down Lucille and also Bob Hope for my show. They wanted to do one-liners or comedy, which of course was their specialty, but our show was very serious.
Dear Sweet Spirits – do continue to write to me and I promise that in the next column, I’ll devote all my time to answering your questions.
Personally handwrite a letter to Kenny, seal and mail it yourself, and send it to: Kenny Kingston, PO Box 1857, Studio City, CA 91614. Then look for his answer to your question in a future issue.
