Not so fast, Mike Huckabee.

The former Arkansas governor is taking some serious heat for his comments on Monday criticizing Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman for being unmarried and pregnant.

"People see a Natalie Portman who boasts, 'We're not married, but we're having these children, and they're doing just fine.' I think it gives a distorted image," Huckabee told conservative radio host Michael Medved. "It's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of-wedlock children."

The folks on Twitter seem to think that Huckabee forgot another out-of-wedlock pregnancy that might hit closer to home among more conservative circles.
