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.

Which Grey’s Anatomy Star Is Pregnant?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Looks like fact and fiction are gelling quite nicely for Grey’s Anatomy’s star Sarah Drew. Her character, April Kepner, just announced her pregnancy with hunky husband (and fellow doctor) Jackson Avery in the season finale last spring, and now Sarah just shared the same big news in real life—she’s due in December.

This will be the second baby for Sarah and her husband, Peter Lanfer, who already have a two-year-old son, Micah Emmanuel. (more…)

Ginnifer Goodwin’s Baby is Kicking Up a Storm!

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

One of the most exciting moments of being a mama-to-be is when you feel your baby kick for the first time. Even though the novelty may wear off, as the baby starts to move more and more, the amazing connectedness you feel definitely doesn’t. But at times all that fetal movement can be downright shocking. How can a baby be so active inside such cramped quarters?!

I know when I was pregnant I joked that sometimes it felt like my son was salsa dancing; other times playing soccer. Well, Once Upon a Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin described her inner-bump bounces by announcing on Twitter, “Presently there are Cirque du Soleil rehearsals being conducted in my womb.” I think we can all relate to that feeling!

Ginnifer, who’s thought to be around the 7-month mark (though she and costar-fiancé Josh Dallas have not confirmed that), has had her pregnancy written into her hit show. So while their characters Snow White and Prince Charming will be expecting their second child together, Ginnifer and Josh will be preparing for their first.

Josh told Good Morning America, “As we saw in the first part of the season, Snow White confessed some secrets to her Prince Charming. She wanted to have another baby. If you saw Ginny now, you would know that hiding the baby bump is going to be difficult so Snow White and Prince Charming are just going to have another baby.”

Unlike pregnant Kerry Washington, who has to wear form-fitting suits while still concealing her bump through creative camera shots on Scandal, Ginnifer told her Twitter followers that Snow White’s cloaks are so spacious that she “can fit a baby AND ace-bandaged ice packs under those royal muumuus.”

Though the cute celeb couple is private, Ginnifer and Josh’s romance played out in the media because they’re costars. In April 2012, they announced their relationship one year after the show’s premiere, then revealed their engagement in October 2013 and their pregnancy in November 2013, through social media. “It is true! There is a bun in my oven! Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart and bump for your loving support. #JoshDallasIsMyBabyDaddy #OverTheMoon,” Ginnifer tweeted.

It looks like these two are getting their fairytale ending in real life too!

And the Best Dressed Bump at the Oscars Goes to…

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Kerry Washington! The Scandal star wins Everything Pregnancy’s Preggy Award for the most stunning, effortlessly gorgeous mama-to-be. Where do I start? The Old Hollywood glamour of the half-up coif, the berry lips, the eye-catching eye makeup, subtle Jennifer Meyer sparkle, and a beautiful, belly-skimming Jason Wu gown in violet—it doesn’t get any better than Kerry!

Best Makeup: Olivia Wilde
The actress—who is set to go back to work two months after she delivers her baby—was positively polished as if she was channeling Audrey Hepburn in a simple-yet-chic black column Valentino gown, romantic updo and—the reason Olivia wins this category—amazing cat eyes. Meow! 

Best Accessory: Elsa Pataky
And, no, I’m not talking about Elsa’s Graziela Gems earrings and blinged-out bracelet by Dana Rebecca Designs! Elsa is a gorgeous and glowing pregnant gal (who is carrying twins!), and she looks even better with her equally-hot hubby, Chris Hemsworth, by her side (but who wouldn’t?!). They’re like the modern-day Ken and Barbie!

Best Bump-Hugging Dress: Kristin Cavallari
While E! had the fashion maven comment on everyone else’s red carpet style, I was in awe of Kristin’s Alexander McQueen gown that was truly fit for a goddess. The white confection hugged the soon-to-be mama of two‘s curves in all of the right places (especially her belly!), making her look feminine and flawless.

Golden Globes Recap: Baby Bumps Ruled the Red Carpet!

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Yes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious as the hosts of the Golden Globes. Yes, the always glam Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams all won coveted best actress trophies (best supporting for JLaw), but if you ask

me it was really the pregnant presenters who stole the show! Olivia Wilde stunned in a long-sleeved, emerald-green sequined Gucci gown, which she paired with an Emm Kuo clutch and Forevermark diamonds. While we were all oohing and awing over her, the self-deprecating star admitted, “Until about a week ago, I just looked fat!” she said. “I wanted to be like, ‘I’m not fat, I’m pregnant!’” (Um, I think we’ve all been there at one time or another!)

The soon-to-be first-time mom was absolutely giddy about all things baby. Not only did the loose-lipped star reveal she and fiancé Jason Sudeikis are having a boy (who was kicking her all the way down the red carpet!), but during an interview with Ryan Seacrest Olivia also spilled her son’s due date. The Star Wars fan says it’s easy for her to remember. All she has to say is, “May the fourth be with you.” That’s right—May 4—just one week before Mother’s Day. What a fab early Mom’s Day present!

But she wasn’t the only bumpilicious beauty of the night. The always perfectly-styled Kerry Washington did not disappoint her fashion fans. Decked out in a custom-made white Balenciaga gown, matching Balenciaga clutch, open-toed Casadei shoes and Fred Leighton jewels, she proudly announced, “I have the best date of the night, my little accessory here,” as she touched her growing belly.

And Drew Barrymore, who is pregnant with baby #2 and is due in late March/early April, wore a lovely Monique Lhuillier gown covered in floral appliqués, red Roger Vivier shoes, a sparkly Edie Parker clutch and jewelry by Chanel. She couldn’t thank her dress designer enough. “She’s making a pregnant lady feel really good right now,” Barrymore told E!  She then explained to People why she chose the dress in the first place, “It’s hearts and flowers and pink, all of my favorite things. When I saw it, I said, ‘It’s perfect.’ It’s comfortable and it’s easy—two very important things when you’re pregnant!”

Olivia, Kerry and Drew were looking so gorgeous that women were even commenting that they wanted to get pregnant just so they could look as beautiful as these ladies with their full, flowing locks and natural glows. It doesn’t get much better than that!
