Has Fifty Shades of Grey inspired pregnancies around the world? Some people think so. Of course, we’ll have to wait until February or so to see if it’s true, but here’s what some experts are saying, according to ABC News:
“Reading Fifty Shades of Grey is acting like an aphrodisiac for women,” Linda Murray, Global Editor in Chief of BabyCenter.com, told Good Morning America. “It’s putting them in the mood more frequently and they’re having more sex and they’re ultimately getting pregnant faster.”
We especially like the story of Carly and Leroy Gibson, who credit Fifty Shades with their recent pregnancy:
Carly and Leroy Gibson of Spokane, Wash., said 14 months spent trying to have another baby had taken the sexy out of sex.
“I think the fun was taken out of it at that point in time because you’re like, ‘Okay, here it is. Day 14. We’ve got five days to go. Go strong. I don’t care if you’re tired…it’s time to go to work,’” Carly said.
After Carly began reading “50 Shades,” Leroy says he noticed a change in his wife.
“She just put down the book and she was all over me,” he told “GMA.” “It was nice and enjoyable.”
How does one repay E.L. James? Maybe with your firstborn, no biggie:
“I would like to name the baby Anastasia if it’s a girl,” Carly said, referring to the series’ main female character. “He’s not so much for the idea yet,” she said, referring to her husband.
Anastasia is a lovely name on its own, but we might have to side with Leroy on this one.
