Pregnant Women: Emma Watson REALLY Respects You!

Monday, March 31st, 2014

They say if you want to know what someone’s going through, you have to walk a mile in their shoes.  Well, if you want to know what a pregnant woman is going through, you have to walk just a few steps in her bump. At least that’s what method actor Emma Watson recently learned while filming the box office hit, Noah.

Emma, who plays Ila—a woman expecting twins—in the biblical drama, recently told David Letterman that she wanted to look and feel like she was pregnant with twins to help her get into character, so she asked the wardrobe department to make her a pregnancy suit that weighed as much as it would if she had two babies onboard.

“I came out the next day and I was like, ‘You can’t be serious … I’m exhausted … this is crazy!’” she exclaimed. “And then [wardrobe] turned to me and said, ‘Yeah, that’s just the weight of one child.’”

She couldn’t believe it! But when Emma spoke to her own mom, exhausted after day one of filming, she found no sympathy. “You don’t get to complain, you only faked it,” said wise Mama Watson. Emma went on to tell David, “I have a whole newfound respect for women and motherhood.”

As she should! Of course having a little one inside you is amazing, but you have no idea—or at least I didn’t!—how taxing being pregnant can be until you’re actually carrying a child.The overwhelming feeling of nausea is your new normal (at least for 70 percent of you who will have morning sickness, the other 30 percent are off the hook—and you have won the mommy lottery as far as I’m concerned!). Pregnancy also brings with it the trifecta of discomfort: heartburnconstipation and/or diarrhea, and flatulence. Let’s not forget back pain, foot swelling, and uncontrollable sweating too!

Being pregnant is not easy (by a stretch!), and there will be days when you can’t wait for your baby to arrive just so you don’t have to suffer anymore. But keep your eye on the prize: that beautiful baby of yours! As hard as pregnancy can be, it’s nothing compared to the lifetime of happiness you’ll have with your child.

Gender Reveal: Boy or Girl for Megan Fox & Brian Austin Green?

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Drumroll, please. It’s gender reveal time for Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green. Well, it’s safe to say there will be a lot more of the color blue in their future. That’s right—they are expecting another boy! According to In Touch, the couple, which has been married since 2010, is adding another son to their growing brood, which already includes big brother Noah, who turns 1 later this month (as well as Megan’s stepson, Kassius, 11, who is Brian’s son with ex Vanessa Marcil).

The speedy pregnancy just months after Noah was born was reportedly a happy surprise for the pair, who first met on the set of the sitcom Hope & Faith in 2004. It’s no secret that Megan wants a big family, and that being a mom is now her number one priority. After having son, Noah, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star told Marie Claire UK: “Acting isn’t my job anymore. My job is to be with him. All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it. I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. That is where my heart is.”

Congrats to Megan and Brian! Having a son myself (and no girls to compare him to), I can say boys are the best!
