Nick Lachey Dishes on “Creative” Pregnancy Sex!

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

In an interview last week with no-holds-barred Jenny McCarthy, Nick Lachey got plenty honest about his sex life with a second baby on the way.

McCarthy asked the singer bluntly if he’s currently having sex with his pregnant wife Vanessa Lachey, and he came right out with it.

“You get to this point, you’ve got to get very creative with your positioning,” he said in the interview, recapped in Us Weekly. Do tell!

“[But] I’m not sure she’s that comfortable right now with much of anything, including sex. It’s been an uncomfortable time when you get into the last month and a half,” he said. And he’s sure not kidding. As I’ve written here before ad infinitum, I was so enormous in my pregnancy that even getting into bed was royally uncomfortable — and that was just for sleep! Because of the delicate situation carrying multiples can frequently be, and because I had a very generous amount of fluid, my doc kiboshed sex around 26 weeks.

Lachey then went on to give specifics: “It was my birthday weekend this [past] weekend though, so I did howl at the moon a couple times.”

That’s a photo from Nick’s big day on Vanessa’s Instagram. She captioned the snap: “Happy Birthday My Love.” But this far along in per pregnancy, there’s one present she may not have given him!

Nick’s not the first one to break it down. See the results of the pregnancy sex survey we conducted among readers and prepare to blush. You dished on libido, fantasies, and yes — those creative pregnancy sex positions!

Maternity Style Tips: Designer Rachel Pally’s Bump-Flaunting Do’s and Don’ts

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Kim Kardashian may have put it best when she said, “Pregnancy style is hard.”

It is hard, you guys! I found this to be especially true in my twin pregnancy, when I got so big so fast that I had very few wardrobe options left by the time I got to about 24 weeks.

I made do with a bunch of staples from Old Navy, which were boring but affordable and easily accessorized. And I’ve written here many times too about my handful of pieces from designer Rachel Pally, which were splurgier—though I got them all on sale—but were truly statement making, and helped me feel like myself.

I’m not the only fan, of course. You might even say that stars are just like me! (Ahem.) Preggers celebs like Kourtney Kardashian and Vanessa Lachey have recently stepped out wearing the designer. (That’s an Instagram pic from Lachey’s baby shower.)

Because Rachel has pretty much nailed maternity style—and because I’m totally crushing on her—I reached out to her for her takes on how to dress a burgeoning bump to perfection.

Here are Rachel Pally’s do’s and don’ts for maternity style.

DO:

Pally advises dressing in such a way that still feels true to your sense of personal expression as much as possible—even though your body may be all new. “Do dress like yourself. Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to adopt an entirely new style,” she says. Try incorporating a few splurge-y pieces that make you feel amazing along with affordable basics that resemble pieces you’d wear anyway.

Embrace sexy! Make your non-maternity wardrobe work for you by continuing to wear your favorite, statement-making accessories and—if you’re comfortable in them—heels. Pally wore leather leggings throughout much of her pregnancy. You can be sexy and pregnant!

If possible, work some of your non-maternity pieces in to your maternity wardrobe, she says. With my twin bump, there was no way I could wear any of my old pants or dresses, but a fave blazer or cardigan from my pre-pregnancy days made me feel stylish—and saved money to boot.

DON’T:

Don’t dress in billowy clothes. Instead, it can be much more flattering to dress in bump-skimming pieces that flaunt your shape. “Don’t try to hide the bump,” under loose-fitting gear, she says. “It only makes you look big, not pregnant,” she says. Oh yes, ladies: Work that gorgeous bump!

Don’t let your unfamiliar bod get you down. (You’re making a human being in there after all—you’re a super hero!) If you look pulled together, you might find it even elevates your mood. So if you’re up for it, have fun with your maternity dressing. “Don’t resort to wearing yoga pants or leggings every day,” she says. “Keep it polished and you will feel so much better.”

Now tell me: What’s your fave maternity style tip?

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.

Vanessa and Nick Lachey Are Expecting Baby No. 2!

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Nick, Vanessa and Camden LacheyWhen Parents interviewed Vanessa and Nick Lachey for our June 2014 cover, the cute couple proclaimed, “We definitely want more kids” when asked if their almost-2-year-old son, Camden, would be a big brother anytime soon.

And back in February, Nick told People magazine that he’d love to have a daughter, saying, “I do want a girl. I think there’s something emotional about having a daughter that I definitely want to experience.”

Well, it looks like they’re getting what they want! As Nick announced in a sweet tweet, the couple are expecting a baby girl!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nick and his 98 Degrees bandmate-brother Drew are two and a half years apart in age, and he told Parents that he thought that was a perfect age gap. “You don’t want kids to have to share the same group of friends,” he said, while Vanessa added, “But you don’t want them so far apart that they have nothing in common.” While we don’t know how far along Vanessa is, exactly, it looks like Camden and his baby sis will have a similar age difference, which will suit their parents just fine.

Congrats to the family!

Bikini Baby Bump Photo: Do It Now!

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Celebrity Bumpie PhotoI know taking a bikini photo period can seem daunting, let alone one when you’re pregnant—like really, really pregnant. But I think you should do it, and here’s why:

It’s a beautiful moment. There’s an indescribable intimacy that develops between you and your bump. You have an amazing little being inside of you, and the unconditional love is already there. Much like in those nature videos when you see the mama bird keeping her eggs warm through winter, and prey at bay, that’s what a pregnant woman turns into—someone who will take care of her baby at all costs, even before its hatched. And I think that’s something to be celebrated.

You’re gorgeous, and no one is going to pick a part how you look (including you!). It’s true what they say—your skin has a natural glow when you’re pregnant. Hormones or not, I think it’s your happiness shining through! You walk with a newfound confidence and feel super-feminine. You no longer look at your so-called flaws, because all eyes are on your bump. It’s big and it’s beautiful!

You can be artistic. Have fun with it! Do a moody black and white shot, a silhouette at sunset, a playful old-school pinup pose. It doesn’t have to be something taken too seriously and it doesn’t have to be too sexy (unless you want that—you’re in control!).

It can be done on the cheap. You don’t have to do an elaborate photo shoot with a professional photographer and lighting to capture a great moment. Just a quick, simple shot can do the trick. Some of my favorite photos of myself were taken by my husband on his iPhone, some when I have no makeup on at all.

I regret not taking one, and so I don’t want you to have any regrets either! Not to get all Debbie Downer on you, but my dad was really sick when I was pregnant, so I spent a week out of each month going down to Florida to visit him during the last six months of his life—which I would never take back and I’m so glad I was able to do that for him and my mom—but that kept me from going on a babymoon and taking a bikini bump photo.

I remember a girlfriend of mine telling me, “Who cares if you have the vacation, you can still take the photo!” I felt silly just getting into a bikini for no reason to have my husband photograph me, so I never got the shot. Now when I see a gorgeous pregnancy photograph, like Jaime King’s, I kick myself every time. Learn from my mistake: Don’t be embarrassed, just do it!
