Matthew McConaughey announced yesterday on his website that his girlfriend, Camila, is three months pregnant. This means that their window of opportunity for planning a Babymoon is slowly closing. They have passed the first trimester, where travel isn’t recommended, so this gives them three to four months before the end is near…….the end of life as freewheeling travelers.
But what is a Babymoon, you ask? A Babymoon is the last travel hurrah for an expecting couple before another being is added to the relationship. Here are some of TravelingMamas.com picks for Babymoons:
The Grand Lido Resort and Spa in Negril is an all inclusive resort offers 24 hour room service, prenatal spa treatments, a 30 minute personal training session for dad, and the in room bar is stocked daily with pickles, chocolate bars, and ginger ale for mom.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso in San Jose del Cabo beautifies mom and distresses dad with prenatal massage, luxury accommodations, and even a gift for baby.
