When Howard starts appearing on AGT he'll have to do a lot of press. One of the things that he's going to need to accomplish is to deflect the attention away from his racist, misogynistic past and fully redefine himself to a new generation. What better way than to trot out his pregnant wife with stories of animal rescues and gay rights? This would definitly change the angle of articles about him. Beth will get to bask in his reflected glory, and if she plops the kids out during his first season on network TV, she's sure to get a bunch of stories in People, US, and all that other tabloid trash. It'll be a win-win for the lame power-couple. Her womb will finally bear fruit AND she'll get tons of press like she desires, and he'll get to further distance himself from his raunchy past and recreate himself as a lovable scoundrel to all the fat hausfrau's across America.
