Wait, Is Leighton Meester Pregnant?!

Monday, May 18th, 2015

This just in: Blake Lively may not be the only Gossip Girl alumna to add “mama” to her list of credits—multiple sources are reporting that Leighton Meester, 29, and hubby Adam Brody are expecting!

The super-private couple kept their dating under wraps from the media, and even pulled off a secret wedding in 2014. But they’ve hinted about starting a family in the past. In a Reddit AMA last summer, Brody joked about wanting 12 kids. And in the November issue of Nylon magazine, Meester had this to say about approaching age 30: “Most people I know are starting to get married. It’ll be kids next. I like grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I’ve got dogs.”

Not surprisingly, the pair hasn’t commented the news—and we wouldn’t be surprised if Meester takes a page out of Jessica Biel’s pregnany playbook and simply never discusses her condition. But photos have surfaced (as they did with Biel) that certainly seem to confirm her mama-to-be status, with the signer/actress wearing a tight gray top and sporting a sizeable bump (and the tell-tale popped-out belly button!) while out and about with Brody.

Celebrity Maternity Style: Who Nails It (and How to Get It!)

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Blake Lively maternity styleWho is the best-dressed pregnant celeb?

You may remember a recent UK poll that showed people admire Keira Knightley’s pregnancy style over even Kate Middleton’s. (I respectfully disagree—you can’t top perfection!)

Now there’s a new published list that claims a different celeb deserves the throne. The top spot on the best-dressed bumps list, according to online retailer Zulily (which just released the ranking in association with its maternity fashion week—hello, discounts!), goes to (drumroll)… Blake Lively!

Of course, new-mama Blake’s maternity style was much discussed—and coveted—during her pregnancy. But does she deserve to top the list? You tell me!

Here’s the full list in order, according to Zulily:

1. Blake Lively
2. Kristen Bell
3. Kate Middleton (Ed note: She’s my own pick for best maternity style anywhere, ever!)
4. Carrie Underwood
5. Jennifer Love Hewitt
6. Tamera Mowry
&. Kourtney Kardashian (What would any arbitrary list of celebs be without at least one Kardashian?)
8. Ali Larter
9. Shakira (Great maternity style, and a world-changing baby shower? Yes, I’m a huge fan!)
10. Zooey Deschanel

Interesting—nary a Knightley on the list. Maybe Zulily is not fond of bug-printed frocks, even if they are Chanel. Maybe here in the U.S., we’re not as over-the-moon about Keira as were respondents to the U.K.-based poll that bestowed the recent honor. Or maybe we just haven’t seen enough yet from the star, who only announced her pregnancy in mid-December.

Of course this is hardly a science, and it’s all just plain fun—but I do love maternity style spotting!

Now let me know what you think: Who’s your pick for best-dressed pregnant celeb?

Why We’ll Miss Blake Lively Being Pregnant

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Blake Lively pregnantIf you blinked, you might have missed Blake Lively’s pregnancy. Between her announcement in October, and her delivery before the new year, there were just a few short months in which the public got to share in the joy of the star’s burgeoning bump. And now that her baby with hubby Ryan Reynolds is on the outside, I’m going to miss the pregnancy phase!

Here’s why: Blake totally won the maternity fashion game. From daring red carpet looks, like the now-famous pale yellow Gucci down with the plunging neckline, to everyday street style, she nailed it every single time.

And sure, maybe some of those looks weren’t exactly budget friendly or otherwise attainable for us mere mortals. But plenty of the maternity style concepts she strutted were accessible and imitation-worthy in the real world. For instance, the mixed-pattern outfit she wore when she revealed her pregnancy on her website, Preserve (pictured here): breezy, chic, comfy, totally doable.

And the ways she worked accessories—like trimmed capes and statement jewelry—set an example for how we can all express ourselves through fashion, no matter our stage of pregnancy, and no matter our budget and taste preferences.

In short, I loved watching Blake parade around in her pregnancy style chicness, and I’m sad that phase is over. Fortunately, she’s made clear she wants many more kids—so hopefully we’ll see it again before too long!

The 10 Best Celebrity Pregnancies of 2014

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Kate Middleton pregnantI don’t know about you, but I shut my brain off around this time of year. All I want is a cup of spiked hot cocoa, a fire in the fireplace, the Mariah Carey holiday Pandora station—and a bunch of year-end fluff on the Internet. If you’re anything like me, I have a present for you: a list of the top 10 celebrity pregnancies of 2014! No, this list is not scientific in any way, and there’s no methodology to report. But there were sure a lot of pregnant stars who kept me entertained this year, and now seems like a plenty good time to reflect on their stories. So grab that mug of hot cocoa and come along with me for the fun of it, won’t you?

10. Kourtney Kardashian
What would any arbitrary list of celebrities be without a Kardashian? The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star just gave birth to her third child—a boy!—with boyfriend Scott Disick.

9. Jill Duggar
The 19 Kids and Counting star got pregnant almost immediately following her June wedding, announcing her pregnancy on August 20—even before the end of her first trimester. More time for us to follow the journey on Instagram, thank you very much!

8. Carrie Underwood
The country star shared her pregnancy announcement with her fans on social media on Labor Day, and has since shared us given us some totally relatable candid moments. Yes, we all know about pregnancy crying fits too, sister!

7. Eva Mendes
The star had a baby with epic dreamboat Ryan Gosling this year. Need we say more?! Sadly, we didn’t have too much time to track this celebrity pregnancy: Rumors only broke in the star’s final months of pregnancy.

6. Zoe Saldana
Completely the opposite of the Kardashian-style approach, this mama-to-be makes our list for the mystery surrounding her pregnancy (and now, quite possibly, birth!). She’s kept mostly quiet throughout… even though we have much reason to believe she’s having twins!

5. Alicia Keys
In a year of naked celebrity baby bump photos galore, we’re adding a star to the list for a belly-baring shot with an excellent cause: the singer’s own #wearehere movement for social justice.

4. Blake Lively
This gorgeous star makes our list for becoming nothing short of a maternity fashion icon from right out of the gate. We’re taking notes!

3. Mila Kunis
We had a lot of fun along with Ashton Kutcher’s future wife during her pregnancy, didn’t we? The outspoken star always had something conversation-sparking to say, from her remarks about epidurals, to that famous pregnancy rant!

2. Chelsea Clinton
A grandbaby for the presidential family! After being pregnant much 2014, the former first daughter delivered her daughter, Charlotte, in September.

1. Kate Middleton
What’s more exciting than another royal baby on the way? Although barely showing, the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child with Prince William. As with Kate’s first pregnancy, the palace was forced to make the announcement early as the duchess suffered from acute morning sickness. And that early annoucnement gives us plenty of time to look forward with excitement to her expected April 2015 delivery!

See Which Celeb Moms-to-Be Are Major Pregnancy Fashion Influencers

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Once, early in my pregnancy, I bought an off-the-rack dress on sale at Pea in the Pod and thought I looked pretty good for a Hollywood event I was covering for work during awards season in Los Angeles. That is, I thought I looked good until I stood in reasonably close proximity to a pregnant Kerry Washington, who looked like a flawless goddess. Moral of the story: If you want to be a glam pregnant lady, it doesn’t hurt to have unlimited funds and stylist resources to pull it off.

Celeb moms-to-be Blake Lively and Kate Middleton know a thing or two about that — and they’re killing it at the pregnancy fashion game.

First, there was the outfit Lively wore in photos announcing her pregnancy on her website . Her orchid pattered blouse, which retailed for $148 from Sam & Lavi, sold out in no time flat, according to E! Online.

This week, she stepped out for her first post-announcement joint appearance with hubby Ryan Reynolds looking beyond enviably glam and gorgeous in a skin-tight pale yellow Gucci gown with a down-to-there neckline, as seen in Us Weekly. File under: Stars are not just like us.

Then of course there’s Kate Middleton, who is also well known for her outfits’ ability to immediately sell out retail store stock. This week, she too made her first public appearance since the palace was forced to announce her pregnancy early due to acute morning sickness. She wore an impeccable Alexander McQueen coat dress and coordinating fascinator, according to the Daily Mail. And she looked impossibly perfect, as always. If only McQueen was within the realm of affordability for the average pregnant woman — or any woman! — it’s a safe bet half of us would be rocking that look this very weekend.
