Kardashian Baby Bump Comparison: Kourtney vs. Kris

Friday, August 8th, 2014

In honor of Throwback Thursday (and of the trend of recreating old family shots) reality star Kourtney Kardashian posted naked pictures of her sporting her first baby bump with boyfriend Scott Disick—and of her mom, Kris Jenner similarly posed from a decades-ago pregnancy.

It seems to be a hot trend amongst celebrity moms-to-be to pose for nude bump shots and share them with the world: Christina Aguilera just did it, and Demi Moore, Britney Spears, Cindy Crawford, and Jessica Simpson also showed it all, often splashed across a magazine cover.

But celebs are the only moms-to-be I know who are following this trend—I haven’t seen or heard of a single dare-to-bare bump shot amongst my entire mom cohort.

Tell us: Did you pose for a bare bump shot? And did you share it on your Twitter feed?

Gender Reveal! Kelly Rowland Is Having a…

Friday, August 1st, 2014

It’s going to be a boy for Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland—though she wasn’t quite ready to spill the beans on whether it was a boy or girl to the public!

In an interview on Fox, she accidentally referred to her baby as “he,” when talking about how spoiled he already is. And then finally, she just went ahead and said: “It, it’s…aw, f–k it! It’s a boy. It’s a boy!”

She’s not the only celeb who slipped and inadvertently shared their baby’s sex during an interview. Last year, Jessica Simpson famously let it slip that she was having a boy on Jimmy Kimmel Live, by saying: “The crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous.”

And Kelly Rowland already has a baby name picked out, though she didn’t spill the beans on what she and husband Tim Witherspoon picked. The only hint? “The dad picked out the name. It has to do with family,” she said. Maybe Timothy Jr.?

Which Stars Aren’t Getting Any Pregnancy Sex?

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Pregnancy sex can be a bit of a tug-of-war. Most men think it’s creepy to be getting it on when there’s a baby on board. Meanwhile, pregnant women’s hormones are at an all-time high, making their sex drives even greater than usual. While I was pregnant, I thought I finally knew what it would be like to be a man: I thought about sex all of the time!

Unfortunately for two pregnant celebrities it seems their husbands’ need to do the deed isn’t as strong when she’s with child. Kristen Cavallari recently told Fit Pregnancy that her football player husband, Jay Cutler, is weirded out by pregnancy sex. “Sex is funny when you’re pregnant,” said Kristin. “Guys get weird about it. I’m like, ‘Oh Jay, the baby’s kicking!’ and he’s like, not wanting to know about it.”

Her advice to women in the same boat? “It’s important for women to realize—if your guy is a little weirded out but isn’t good at expressing that, it can be isolating.” She also says that taking baths together and a little sexy lingerie can help smooth things over.

Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett can relate. In a recent blog for People, she confessed her hubby Hank Baskett has refused to have sex with her during the third trimester. In true TMI form, Kendra wrote: ‘I’m round, tired, grouchy, smelly and horny! Why would he want to touch me?!. When I cough, I either fart, pee or cramp!” Totally gross, but totally true! Lots of things become out of your control once you’re pregnant—including bodily functions.

But it’s not all bad news, ladies. Some men seem to get even more turned on when a woman is pregnant, like Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell’s husband. She said on an episode of Conan that he loved pregnancy sex because, “he felt like he was with a completely different woman.” She went on to say that it was like “legally cheating.” “I was also involved and he kind of got a freebie that didn’t hurt anybody’s feelings.”

And apparently Dax isn’t alone. Angelina Jolie told Entertainment Weekly that pregnancy sex is “great for the sex life. It just makes you a lot more creative so you have fun.” And Jessica Simpson confessed to Ryan Seacrest that when she’s pregnant her sex drive is unstoppable. “The Big O is, like, the biggest O ever,” she said (I agree that pregnancy sex can be some of the best sex ever: Read this).

Only time will tell how you, your body, and your baby daddy will feel about pregnancy sex throughout your pregnancy (it could change from trimester to trimester and your sex positions will likely need to change, too), but please promise me you’ll try to push negative thoughts out of your head about how big you’ve gotten and how if your guy isn’t into pregnancy sex, it’s because he doesn’t find you attractive. That is so not true! More often than not, the guy just feels like he and his enormous manlihood could somehow harm the baby, or that it’s the same as having sex in front of your kid after he or she’s born. So just talk to him, calm his fears, and get busy. You know you wanna!

TELL US: Are you and your guy on the same page with pregnancy sex, or does one of you want it more than the other?

Pregnant with TWINS & Being Belly Bashed? Not Cool!

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Chris Hemsworth’s gorgeous wife Elsa Pataky—who is seven months pregnant with twins—was working it on the Oscars red carpet. The Fast & Furious 6 star was totally owning her bump, which was proudly on display in an eye-catching teal custom-made Elie Saab embellished gown. She looked like she was having a blast posing beside her hunky husband (Who wouldn’t? Um, hello, he’s Thor for a reason!). I’m sure she was savoring the big night out, which will likely be few and far between once the twins join big sister India, 21 months.

Then E!’s Fashion Police had to go and burst her precious mama-to-be bubble by making fun of her bump. “I’m sorry, look at her tummy! She is HUGE. I know why she’s huge, I saw her sonogram,” joked Joan Rivers as the camera cut to the selfie of Ellen DeGeneres posing with 10 other stars (plus Lupita Nyong’o’s brother). And making things worse, jerky co-host and fashion stylist George Kotsiopoulos chimed in, “That doesn’t look like a baby bump—looks like a beer belly!”

Oh, no they didn’t!  Yes, yes, they did! I couldn’t believe what I was hearing! I wanted to yell back some choice expletives at the TV screen. How could they? Being pregnant is such a sacred time, and one when you truly have no control whatsoever over your body. Of course, Elsa’s not the first star to be fat-shamed while pregnant (Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson!), but it doesn’t make it anymore acceptable. Yes, the show is supposed to be funny—supposed to be—but this time it crossed the Mean Girl line, in my opinion.

TELL US: Do you think when it comes to comedy everyone’s a fair target? Or should pregnant fat jokes be off limits?

The Most Googled Celeb Pregnancy of 2013 Goes to…

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Not so fast! Before I announce the winner, let’s recap the “nominees” aka all of the lovely pregnant stars of 2013 (well, most of them—there isn’t enough space or time to go over every single one of them but these are the highlights!).

In the newsmakers category we have Kate Middleton, who was the picture of perfection—period. Jessica Simpson was a boho goddess in major maxis. Though Kim Kardashian was often criticized for her fashion (and her pregnancy weight gain), I think she was graceful under pressure (that said, note to pregnant women everywhere: a head-to-toe, long sleeve, high-neck rose-patterned gown is not a good look—ever).

As for our favorite musicians, Shakira’s hips didn’t—and still don’t—lie. Even nine months pregnant, she was just as perky and petite as ever (how’d she do it?). Fergie was able to maintain her rocker edge from start to finale (I wanted an encore!). Gwen Stefani has been the master of (bump) disguise in fashion-forward staples any girl would die for (especially me!).

Then you have the sweet girl-next-door types who’ve melted our hearts with every interview or Twitter post about what it means to be a mom: Drew Barrymore (I am eating up every gushing word she utters!), Jennifer Love Hewitt (I wish your mom was still alive to see your adorable bump!), Kristen Bell (cuteoverload!), and Jenna Dewan-Tatum (who was one of the most stunning pregnant women ever! Am I right?).

And we can’t forget the mamas-to-be who just recently surprised us all with their pregnancy news: Kelly Clarkson (sending morning sickness-ending vibes your way, girl!), Olivia Wilde (the kid’s going to have looks and humor!), Ginnifer Goodwin (yes, I’m a little jealous! First, you had an on and off-screen fairytale romance, now you’re getting your happy ending!) and Kerry Washington (brains, beauty and unbelievable style!).

And the title for most Googled pregnant woman of 2013 goes to…drum roll, please! KIM KARDASHIAN! Now here’s the top 10 list of the most Googled pregnant babes of 2013 in descending order:

1. Kim Kardashian

2. Kate Middleton

3. Megan Fox

4. Shakira

5. Jessica Simpson

6. Halle Berry

7. Tamar Braxton

8. Olivia Wilde

9. Kerry Washington

10. Jennifer Love Hewitt

TELL US: Are you surprised by the list? Did your favorite pregnant stars make the cut? Who was left out that should have been on it?
