Sharon den Ardel, frontwoman for Dutch symphonic rockers Within Temptation, is with child for a vagina-debilitating third time, according to the band’s site. This, as the band prep the release of their latest LP.
“As we are all gearing up for the release of our new album I have news which might come as a surprise: [band guitarist] Robert [Westerholt] and I are expecting a child,” Sharon says. “To be honest, this was not planned at all, but we’re very happy about it as we experience our kids as an enrichment of our lives.”
Damn, man. That third kid’s going to grow up knowing he was a mistake, and knowing that the world knew he was a mistake because that’s what his mom write in a press release.
The bun in the oven will not affect the release of the band’s disc, which drops in March. “The recordings for the album are completed and the songs are being mixed right now, all preparations for the release are in full swing, so there is no reason to put things on hold.” The band’s planned tour is a different story.
“However, we couldn’t avoid rescheduling our tour as it will be impossible for me to deliver a great show for you while being in the final months of my pregnancy. Also due to the complications during the previous pregnancies it is dangerous for our baby and for me to be very active in these final months. The tour dates have already been re-scheduled to the fall of 2011. The tickets you have bought will remain valid for the new dates.”
