On the red carpet and in the pages of glossy magazines, celebrities with baby bumps always seem to perfectly capture that pregnancy glow. Sure, they've got a team of hairstylists, makeup artists, and tailors helping them get ready for photo shoots and big events, and there's probably a pair of maternity Spanx hiding underneath it all. But when it came to showing off the extra curves created by their pregnancy weight, these women had it going on.
Flower-child-turned-earth-mama Drew Barrymore reportedly gained about 40 pounds of pregnancy weight carrying her second daughter. And although the recommended gain is about 30 pounds, Barrymore couldn't have looked more glowy, showing up to the 2014 Golden Globe Awards in a beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown and red peep-toe heels.
Pregnancy weight looked amazing on pop singer Ciara's frame. Photos of the star in her last trimester showed curves in all the right places!
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, a very pregnant Kristen Bell announced, "When I look in the mirror...I see Brooke Shields, and it doesn't make a lick of sense, but something that the baby is giving me hormonally is making me really giggly and happy." Right on, Kristin -- we thought you looked gorgeous too!
There's nothing scandalous about Kerry Washington's maternity wardrobe. But we can't help thinking the actress looked even more stunning with her baby bump.
Not one to shy away from bikinis or nude scenes on the silver screen in her pre-pregnancy days, Olivia Wilde proved her body could handle the extra pounds and still look amazing. Her inspiration: "I have a great mom [former 60 Minutes producer Leslie Cockburn]. She's a good example of how to be a strong badass pregnant lady," Wilde has reportedly said.
Gossip magazines made a big deal about Kim Kardashian's expanding pregnancy assets, but we didn't hear Kanye complaining. He thought Kim looked hot -- and we couldn't agree more!
The stilettos stayed in the closet during Jessica Simpson's second pregnancy: "This time around I've been less about the fashion and more about the comfort...Now I'm wearing more flats," the star is reported to have said. We think sneakers made Simpson's pregnancy curves look more than just stylish -- she was sexy!
