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.

The Royal Baby Is Due in April! Here’s What Kate Can Expect in Her Second Trimester

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Looks like Kate Middleton is just about out of the woods.

The Duchess of Cambridge — whose second pregnancy was confirmed by the Palace rather early, due to the condition known as hyperemesis gravid arum (or acute morning sickness) — has just emerged from her first trimester. The royal baby is due in April!

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2015,” the Palace announced in a statement. “The Duchess of Cambridge continues to be affected by hyperemesis gravidarum, but her condition is steadily improving.”

As she glides into her second trimester, the princess mama-to-be has a lot to look forward to. First, it’s likely her morning sickness will, as the Palace noted, begin to subside.

Second, she’ll likely start to show, and her noticeable bump will allow strangers to offer her subway seats, or to cut in bathroom lines. Oops, sorry! I was thinking of mere mortals in their second trimester.

Beyond that, Kate will be in that sweet spot between first-trimester uncertainty (it’s the most common time for pregnancies to end in miscarriage) and nausea, and third trimester physical discomfort and limited mobility. She’ll likely be comfortable enough to move around and travel (in fact, she’s resuming her engagements, including the Singapore Prime Minister’s state visit tomorrow). So how about a royal babymoon with Will?

Overall, you might call the second trimester the best part of pregnancy — a time many moms-to-be are most able to enjoy carrying their babies. So here’s to you in your second trimester, Kate! We can’t wait to meet baby number two this sping.

Celebrity Pregnancies: Who’s Due Next?

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Now that Snooki and Chelsea Clinton have had their babies, you may be wondering what to do with those precious moments of your day spent scrolling the tabs for celebrity baby bump news. Fear not! We bring you a digest of who’s yet to deliver, and when to expect their bundles of joy.

Mila Kunis: Ashton Kutcher’s future wife may be next—she’s due any day! (Just remember it’s Mila herself who’s pregnant, and not her fiance—or face her wrath!) Of course, she’s still out doing tons of yoga.

Kelly Rowland: Speaking of prenatal yoga fans, this former Destiny’s Child star may be due around the end of the year, given she announced her pregnancy in May—when she wasn’t even remotely showing.

Alicia Keys: Just looking at the the size of her bump, which she splashed nude across Instagram for a good cause, the singer looks to be a few months from dropping her latest release. In fact, she told the AP she’s expecting her second child with hubby Swizz Beatz in December—the same time of year she often chooses to release her albums!

Kourtney Kardashian: Also probably delivering in December is this Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. She’s expecting her third child with boyfriend Scott Disick.

Vanessa Lachey: Social media also delivered the announcement of this star’s pregnancy, on her wedding anniversary on July 15. She’s expecting her second child with husband Nick Lachey.

Zoe Saldana: Although this mama-to-be has kept mostly mum on her pregnancy even while her bump continues to grow, it’s growing alright. How big will it get before she pops? There’s no telling—as the star is rumored to be expecting twins!

Jill Duggar: The 19 Kids and Counting star didn’t waste any time getting pregnant after saying “I do:” She wed on June 21, and announced her pregnancy on August 20, before clearing that first-trimester hurdle.

Carrie Underwood: Among the newest stars to announce a pregnancy, this country crooner shared the news with her fans on social media on Labor Day. (Get it?)

Kate Middleton: 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, given the royal is suffering from acute morning sickness.

Royal Baby News: Kate Middleton Is Pregnant!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Prince William and Kate MiddletonStop the world: Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting again! The pregnancy—probably the second-most anticipated ever (after her first, of course)—was confirmed this morning by an official palace announcement.

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child.

The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.

As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.

Poor Kate! The Duchess’ awful morning sickness with Prince George was well-documented, and it’s a huge bummer for her that it’s back again. (Pregnancy symptoms can be different with second pregnancies, after all.)

No word on when Prince George will officially become a big brother, but according to People.com, Kate is “believed to be fewer than three months pregnant.”

We hope Kate feels better soon, and are so excited that Prince George is going to be a big brother! Congrats to the Royal family!
