Move along, judgy people. Audrina Patridge has no patience for you. And we don’t either.
The reality TV star — best known for surviving numerous seasons of interpersonal SoCal drama with her perfectly coiffed frenemies on The Hills — and her now-husband, Corey Bohan, a professional BMX dirt bike rider (yes, that’s a thing), had their first child before getting hitched. And Patridge has gotten a lot of flak for having her daughter out of the sanctity of holy matrimony. Gasp.
Shocking, we know. Our delicate sensibilities are getting all crinkled over here. Pass the smelling salts.
Patridge isn’t too fazed by the finger-waggers. “God has a plan for everyone. The baby was a surprise,” she told Momtastic. “And I was like, you know what? This is meant to be.”
Patridge and Bohan did tie the knot this past November in Hawaii. Take that, haters. Daughter Kirra Max, then 4 months old, was a scene-stealer, decked out in a sweet white dress and matching headband.
“A lot of people gave me a hard time for having a baby before getting married, but who are they to judge?” Patridge said. “You always have those few haters who are going to be negative in every situation… nobody is perfect. You have to do what’s good for you.”
That includes having Kirra Max by C-section — not what Patridge had planned. Bizarrely, she found herself on the receiving end of harsh criticism about this too. “I would have loved to have had her naturally, but it was just impossible,” Patridge explained. “She was bigger than we thought and she couldn’t turn. It’s really strange to me that people are so opinionated about how someone else gives birth.”
It’s really strange to us as well. How is it possible that where the baby comes out is still such a hot-button issue for anyone in 2017? It’s time to get some hobbies, weirdos!
Patridge has a chill, live-and-let-live approach about all the shamers. “Just because they have a different opinion or want to do something else doesn’t mean they’re wrong. Everyone is different. Accept people for who they are and don’t judge.”
Wait… does that mean we’re not supposed to judge the people who’re judging her? Damn your logic, Patridge.
