Matt Lauer's Pregnant Wife Files For Divorce

Wow…it must be so tough to go though something like this while pregnant and already having two small children.

Matt Lauer

Today show host Matt Lauer and his wife of seven years, Annette, have officially separated.

Matt, 48, and his wife reportedly split in April, only to reconcile a short time later.

A source tells Star magazine, “They were trying to work things out.”

The Dutch-born model, who is currently pregnant with the couple’s third child, filed for divorce on Sept. 13 in Manhattan Supreme Court. The couple have a son, Jack, 5, and a daughter, Romy, 3.

The source adds, “It’s a pretty clean divorce…no fights, no custody disputes. They are following the pre-nup…no extreme demands or dramatic charges.

“Everyone’s gone to great lengths to keep everything private.”

    Um…. isn’t carleigh expressing HER opinions and the rest of you “crucifying”, “belittling”, and “ridiculing” her for hers?

    I’ve been reading several of these posts for a while now and I know there’s a few people on here who take this opportunity to unleash some of their pent up frustrations on innocent people wanting to post their opinions. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, regardless of whether or not it agrees with yours! Who friggin cares already! GROW UP CARLEIGH (aka SADAM HUSSEIN) AND STOP BELITTLING AND RIDICULING OTHER POSTERS JUST BECAUSE THEIR OPINIONS ARE DIFFERENT FROM YOURS!

  3. carleigh says

    Dori I DO respect your opinion and your right to say what you want. But..your just angry that I pointed out your being a hypocrite..talk about not being able to handle a difference of opinions. I copy and pasted EXACTLY what you posted right back at you to show your being a bit hypocritical…is it me who is OVERLY sensetive??? I think not, I digress. I also want to point out that I did NOT go off on a tirade or rant..I simply noted some valid points in my previous post..if you don’t like it sorry…then stick w/ what you originally stated and DON’T say that you didn’t say this or that when it’s clear to anyone who bothers to read your past posts that YOU IN FACT DID! Sorry…your words not mine.

    Some of you just need to grow up already! Opinions are just that, OPINIONS. The issue at hand isn’t whether or not Matt’s wife should have had an abortion. THAT IS IRRELEVANT! The cold, hard, FACTS are an innocent child is going to be brought into this world without his or her mommy and daddy living in the same home, sleeping in the same bed, eating breakfast at the same table, attending school functions together, taking summer vacations together, etc. etc. I know broken homes exist all over the world and that in some instances two happy homes are better than one un-happy home. My point is this: TRY and work out your problems for the sake of the children. If a separation is imminent, try to put aside all your bitterness for your ex and spend more energy focusing on the children. Making them feel that none of this is their fault will make all the difference in the world to them. I am the product of a broken home and you better believe that both of my parents never once made me feel their divorce had anything to do with me. I never once felt I was any less loved. Our children are our future! They deserve the very best we can give them! Thanks and have a wonderful day!

    Tirades rants??? carliegh thats your speciality not mine,
    I stated my opinion, you didn’t like it, sorry but I am entitled to my opinion. You don’t have to agree with me but that doesn’t give you the right to take personal jabs at me. I see you do this to a lot of people on this web site as if you are of some importance out here. We’re just a bunch of people stating our opinions sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t. Don’t take it so personally. And don’t feel you need to control everything out here.

  6. dori says

    I respect everyones views as I expect my views to be taken for what they are… my views. It’s ok for you attack what people say but when someone has an opinion of their own you have to chew them out. Get over yourself Carleigh.It’s not about you. It’s my view and I’m entitled to verbalize it without you comming out to correct or judge me.
    I didn’t call you vulgar names and I don’t expect you to agree with my opinionsbut this is freedom of speech and I stsated my opinion keep your criticisms to yourself you don’t own this website.
    And once again I say I am truely sorry if I offended anyone.

  7. carleigh says

    Dori
    Comment #31Would you not consider an abortion realizing that it only will leave you , the mother, with another child to care for by yourself? Yes call it birthcontrol if you like……

    and then comment #35 here is a direct paste and copy of YOUR comments:
    I wasn’t the one who stated abortion is a means of birth control, if you look back you’ll see I was restating what someone had said to me.

    Sounds like a contradiction to me?

    As for being a hypocrite? No I don’t think I am a hypocrite. I was responding in post #34 to your previosu posts. I didn’t say you were NOT entitled to your opinions in fact I stated “we all need to respect each others opinions in the end. That’s what we are each entitled to..agree to disagree.” so I responded to your post and that makes me a hypocrite???? Sorry but I don’t see it from my perspective at all….maybe you could explain to me how it is you came to the judgement of me?

    I haven’t stated my personal beliefs on abortion because it’s a hot, sensetive topic. Kudo’s and sympathy to those who have because you have only opened yourself up for scrutiny and backlash. Dori you didn’t get that from me I called you no vulgar names,nor did I retaliate with my own tirade and rant of personal beliefs.

    Maybe next time someone responds you should be able to take another person’s views into consideration before you throw around a label just because someone doesn’t agree with you.

  8. dori says

    in your comment 22 you said people should state their own opinions yet when someone does you criticize. you’re a hypocrite
    read what you wrote….

    I am truely sorry if I offended anyone.I wasn’t the one who stated abortion is a means of birth control, if you look back you’ll see I was restating what someone had said to me.
    I never said said children are dispensable as a matter of fact I said the opposite. Cildren are out there that need homes.
    My children are adopted and I know what it means to really want children, I resent people who use pregnancies to hold marriages or relationships together thats what I was trying to say.

  10. carleigh says

    Dori…abortion is NOT a form of birth control and children are NOT dispensable. That’s why there are so many unfortunate kids in the system the way it is. You stated your beliefs and opinions but maybe by the statements you made you will find you have offended some. It’s just such a controversial topic that’s why I won’t even touch it w/ what I believe.

  11. dori says

    consider this… your marriage is on the rocks ( it didn’t happen overnight you know) and oops you find out your pregnant. Would you not consider an abortion realizing that it only will leave you , the mother, with another child to care for by yourself? Yes call it birthcontrol if you like because there are so many children born who need homes and have no families growing up in orphanages. In this millenium women have a choice and good for us!!!
    I am not catholic and do not believe every seed planted should be born in this world at a time where so many children need to be adopted.

    People do all kinds of things for all kinds of reasons.

  13. Lisa says

    I just made the remark that maybe they should have thought about focusing on the marriage, go to counseling and see if the troubles which they appear to be having for a while (thus the previous seperation) could be resolved before adding another baby to the mix. Divorce is hard enough, never mind being pregnant at the same time.

  14. Shea says

    NO where does it say that they got pregnant to try to save their marriage. OMG you people read into things so much. As for the abortion issue ( that has no bearing on here anyway) I believe in abortion for certain reasons…rape, incest/molestaion and if the pregnancy is putting the mothers life in danger. Those people who use abortion as a means of birth control should be sterilized.

  15. Ms D says

    Am I the only one who only read Dori’s comment as just asking why try to conceive (or at least not try to protect as best as possible…) if a marraige is falling apart?? 🙁

    I also can’t even imagine breaking up in the midst of a pregnancy (assuming it is a pregnancy for BOTH of them if you know what I mean..and NO, I’m not taking a shot at this woman–I know next to nothing about either of them)

    I wish I could say it surprises me to read such sad things, but we all know what happened with Charlie Sheen and his wife..wasn’t she quite far along with their second baby when they filed for divorce?

    It is a sad thing though. 🙁

  16. marysmith says

    “anyway…” This is very disappointing news. I hope it won’t be up to one of us to t hrow the baby a shower.

  17. carleigh says

    To all the above posters….It’s funny how one little comment can open up such a big forum for opinions…and that’s what we all have are opinions. Be it whether or not someone agrees or disagrees w/ abortion is a personal belief and conviction. Those who chose to believe in abortion, should be allowed their beliefs w/o having to face an onslaught of criticism and being crucified. Those who oppose abortion have every right to feel like they feel. It’s a world in which we live w/ all the liberties and freedoms that allow us to form our own individual personal beliefs and right or wrong..there are always going to be conflict and controversy. No decision is right or wrong for everyone but that’s why it is a personal choice and we could go on and on in this blog about what EACH of us believe…it’s just a very sensitive subject and we all need to respect each others opinions in the end. That’s what we are each entitled to..agree to disagree.

  18. Ian says

    hmmmm….. well where to begin with this lil comment tirade lol…… first and foremost people will have to realise that EVERYONE is entitled to an opinion…. this is not a debate to decide who has the right to say something and who doesnt… this is a public bulletin board and therefore EVERYONE has a right to say something…. this isnt a matter of it being no-ones business…. if it was then maybe this should be a private site. Secondly…… No couple should abort the birth of their baby just because their marriage is not working out, it is statistically proven that more and more marriages are ending early these days and also that the parents of the children have separate lives. Why should this couple abort a child that they obviously wanted to keep just because they are getting a divorce, just as long as the childs parents love and care for the child equally, why should it matter if they are married or divorced?

    I am a father of 2 children, hopefully with more on the way with my new partner, I separated from my ex partner when she was pregnant with our second child due to irreconcilable differences, yet not for 1 second did the thought of aborting the birth of our son cross our minds, anyone who does consider that to be an option just because a relationship breaks down obviously doesn’t want children out of love, they just see them as some kind of play things that can be discarded when things go bad.

    It is time people stopped thinking so narrow mindedly and opened their eyes to the situations that go on in life daily.

  19. Diva says

    LOL…. I asked a QUESTION…. dori posted “why conceive and go ahead with a pregnancy on a crumbling marriage?” I ASKED if by “go ahead with a pregnancy” she was suggesting they should have ENDED said pregnancy. It was an inquiry…. to which I was told it was none of my business if that IS what she meant. So I elaborated MY OPINION. I can do that, just as you can. I would hope, sincerely, that not only would someone NOT abort an innocent child because a relationship isn’t going to last, but that no one would suggest they should. Again… my entitled opinion, as a woman who has tried desperately for years to have a baby, that children should not be thrown away for inconvenience.

    I am not carleigh, or Braydie, or Kelly….. but I have enjoyed reading their posts, both agreed and disagreed, for some time now.

    Thank you so much for welcoming me so warmly. {=0)

  20. Olivia says

    I am so annoyed with you DIVA! Just who do you think you are putting words in any ones mouths? Especially words like that? I have read some stupid foul things on this site, but lady you not only ate the cake, you shoved the entire damn thing in at once and kept on shoving. And I didn’t mean it, when I said have a pleasant day———————————- I hope you have a really crappy day you stupid run-a-muck FOOL! You make me sick!

  21. Olivia says

    What bunch of dorks! The really funny thing is, I’ll bet one of you idiots are going to come up with a way to blame Braydie, Carleigh, and Kelly for this latest hot topic cat fight too. You idiots just have to read into someone elses thoughts, change it all around add new words and meanings and then have the balls to run with it and “then” blame one of those three…….. IDIOTS……. And you have a PLEASANT day too, trouble maker!

  22. Diva says

    Hmmm, it didn’t post the first time so I thought it may have been censored for content… the point is still the same.

    Sorry for the multiple posting.

  23. Diva says

    LOL…. if it’s none of my business than neither is it any of yours….

    I suppose this isn’t the forum for an abortion discussion, but I’m going to go ahead and state my opinion that ending a life because your relationship is no longer working is an absolutely preposterous, and rather disgusting, suggestion.

    Now…. who’s business is it to respond? I’m betting your think it’s yours, grinch.

    Have a PLEASANT day! {=0)

  24. Diva says

    LOL…. if it’s none of my business than neither is it any of yours….

    I suppose this isn’t the forum for an abortion discussion, but I’m going to go ahead and state my opinion that killing a child because your relationship is no longer working is an absolutely preposterous, and rather disgusting, suggestion.

    Now…. who’s business is it to respond? I’m betting your think it’s yours, grinch.

    Have a PLEASANT day! {=0)

  25. Diva says

    Did you seriously just suggest an abortion because a marriage wasn’t working out???

    God, I hope not.

  26. dori says

    I agree if the marriage was shakey why conceive and go ahead with a pregnancy on a crumbling marriage? Babies never save marriages in the long run.
    It’s sad to hear .

  27. Lisa says

    saw this one coming- so 48 yrold ML and his 40 yr old wife get pregnant after having seperation and now are finally divorcing-very responsible parents

  28. name game says

    I thought that he and Merideth Vierra were flirtingon the Today show and then heard about the divorce? I wonder….

  29. says

    That is one explaination or they could have in fact fallen in to the “lets have a baby to save the marriage” trap. I don’t know about you guys, but my husband was a saint to put up with me and my preggo hormones, pregnancy is no way to save a marriage.

  30. courtney says

    well im sure they didnt purposely have sex to make antoher kid! im sure they just had sex and oops shes pregnant! it happens ALL THE TIME. sux though…

  31. carleigh says

    DOH it’s good to see your outstanding intelligence shining through like a beacon today..why don’t you POST something relevant PLEASE for once do or say something about the SUBJECT matter!!!!!!!!!!! Or is that to difficult for you??? IDIOT!

  32. Doh says

    Yes carleigh, no carleigh, three bags full carleigh. See the fountain of knowledge is going strong…LOL

  33. carleigh says

    You know this woman probably has very little to worry about. She will probably get a chunk of his fortune as well as a maintainence income. It’s sad that their marriage is breaking up but you have to ask yourself why in the world would they conceive a third child if their marriage was in tatters…their kids are still so young it’s just a tragic situation. I feel sorry for the kids caught up in this mess.
