In other celebrity/mercury news, Rod Stewart and wife Penny Lancaster are expecting again in mid-March, but it wasn’t an easy process — thanks to…fish.
“I love fish and I thought that it was healthy without understanding the high mercury levels that fish like tuna, swordfish and halibut can contain,” Lancaster, 39, tells Hello! in its latest issue.
“My doctor said it was unhealthy to have so much mercury in my body, and also for conceiving babies.”
Even the American Pregnancy Association warns, “the mercury levels in frequently eaten fish can be dangerously high for a pregnant woman.”
Lancaster cut out her fishy habit and tried yet another IVF procedure. Long story short, the pair is expecting another child this spring.
