Given the #WHCD was Light on Celebs This Year, Let’s Look Back At Celebs Who Walked Its Red Carpet Pregnant


The annual White House Correspondents Association dinner has increasingly been a haven for Hollywood Celebrities who walk the red carpet on their way to hob nob with journalism’s elite that cover the White House.

This year was much different.


The current sitting president Donald J. Trump choose to sit it out, a first time since Ronald Reagan  that a President opted to skip the event which usually features a comedian roasting the prez and the media and the pres himself giving a monologue full of self-deprecating humor.

[Even when Reagan skipped it, that was because he was shot on the way in, though to be fair other presidents who were very unpopular at the time Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon have skipped the elite dinner in the past, the only other two since Calvin Coolidge]

This year, the event was also super light on the usual parade of celebrities. That might be a good thing in the eyes of many who have heavily criticized the dinner for becoming to glamourized and Hollywoodized.  Celebrated national TV broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw famously skips it and has been vocal as to his reasons why.

Nonetheless, we usually can spot several celebrity moms we’ve covered in the past to feature on the blog. In the very recent past 8 years, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kristen Bell, Jessica Simpson, Cynthian Nixon, Adriana Lima, Neve Campbell, Emma Watson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Regina King, Anna Chlumsky, Julianna Margulies, Katie Couric, Sofia Vergara, Shonda Rhimes, Rosario Dawson, Candace Cameron Bure, model Emily Ratajowski, Vivica A. Fox, Lupita Nyong’o, Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, Kendell Jenner, Laverne Cox, Lucy Liu, Gabrielle Union have all attended as guests of various news organizations that purchase tables.

Not this year. We didn’t see any. There were a few celebs and some of DC’s A-listers [read: TV journalists and broadcast reporters] there but that’s about it.  And with Trump declaring war on the media, the White House press corp and DC establishment, none in his administration or celebs friendly to him failed to show up as well.

So…we’re doing the next best thing and flashbacking to all the ones who did show up in years past. Interesting enough, most of them were preggers at the time!

Last year, in 2016, while pregnant with her second child, daughter, Isabella, Kerry Washington attempted to conceal her bump in an A-line one shoulder black mini Victoria Beckham mini dress.

In 2015, Glee alum Naya Rivera looked radiant in a white floor length  Tadashi Shoji evening gown and model Anne V ‘s lovely floral gown rocked that year as well.

In 2014, TODAY show anchor Savannah Guthrie was six-months pregnant with her first child when she showed up in a pink dress to the event.


Going further back, Anna Paquin was expecting her first children, a pair of twins, with husband Stephen Moyer in 2011 when she attended the event, also affectionately known as the “Nerd Prom”, wearing a chic and elegant silk jersey gown by French designer Herve L. Leroux.

That same year, Reese Witherspoon was also expecting her third child, but first with second husband Jim Toth. She also went with black in a Monique Lhuillier  gown showing her barely there bump at the time.


There you have it! The White House Correspondents Association dinner  has been noteworthy for Bumpwatch coverage history.

White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner Red Carpet: Celeb moms and others take DC!

Tonight is the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton. The charity event is a glitzy night for journalists who cover the White House to dress up and mingle with politicos, policitians and policy makers in a relaxed atmoshpere.

Over the years, the event has become a big draw for celebrities and with that, the event’s red carpet is ripe for celeb spotting.

Indeed, several of the celebrity women we’ve covered in the past and currenlty expecting stars graced the red carpet.

Glee  actress Naya Rivera looked radiant in a white floor length (careful mama) Tadashi Shoji evening gown.

I really dug model Adriana Lima‘s black Bibhu Mohapatra gown with the sheer bodice and fitted bottom. The red lip really set off this look and it accented well with her wavy side-swept locks.

Ivanka Trump‘s red strapless fishtail gown was super gorg!

Mom-to-be Model Anne V ‘s lovely floral gown rocked.

 Laverne Cox was also there killing it!

  Haven’t seen Lucy Liu for a while. She looked amaze-balls as well!

Blackish Tracee Ellis Ross‘ vibrant orange gown was a standout as well.

I loved Alfre Woodard‘s look too. She certainly looks refreshing and quite younger here!

Pregnant Models of Summer: Lily Aldridge’s pregnancy in photos

Lily Aldridge on the red carpet of the Grammy Awards in LA, California.

With all the buzz over the pregnant actresses, it’s easy to forget about all of the round of Victoria Secret models that are also pregnant including Gisele Bunchen who recently confirmed that she and Tom Brady are expecting their second.
She joins fellow Angel Adriana Lima who is pregnant with her second child and veteran model Molly Sims in the bump watch craze. 
And of course, we just wrapped the bump watch of Angel Alessandra Ambrosio when she gave birth to her son early last month and last year Angel Miranda Kerr  after she gave birth last January 2011. And if we could, let’s recall Angel Jourdan Dunn when the then 19-year old was pregnant with her first child in 2009.
And certainly we cannot forget  the other currently pregnant Angel Lily Aldridge who is expecting her first child with Kings of Leon‘s Caleb Followill.
Rockstars and Models go together like peanut butter and chocolate!  
Here are some photos of a pregnant Aldridge you may have missed over the past months of her pregnancy.

Victoria Secret Angel Adriana Lima & RHOA’s Kim Zolciak are pregnant

Two new pregnancy announcements:
Alessandra Ambrosio won’t be the only Brazilian Victoria Secret model pregnant this year. Adriana Lima just announced on her Facebook page that she and her husband, the NBA‘s Marko Jaric, are expecting their second child. The couple has a 2-year old daughter Valentina.  

And in Real housewives of Atlanta news, Kim Zolciak announced on Twitter that she too is pregnant. This will be Zolciak’s second child with husband Troy Biermann of the NFL’s  Atlanta Falcons.
The couple just wrapped the taping of a new Bravo reality show Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding set to premiere on April 26 about the couple’s nuptials.
My cynical pals are convinced baby number 2 so close to the birth of the couple’s son, Troy Jr., is ripe and convenient to become a sequel to this latest RHOA spinoff.
I’m wondering who will replace her on RHOA when she’s gone. She rarely appears on the latest season already. She’s the Bethenny of Atlanta and will be only the 2nd housewife in franchise history to get her own spinoff show on Bravo. Realhousewives of New Jersey Dina Manzo landed herself a show, Dina’s Party on HGTV (Home and Garden Television) that premiered last fall. 
The ceremony was captured for her new Bravo reality show, Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, which is set to premiere April 26 (9 p.m.).

Zolciak has two daughters, 15-year old Brielle, and 9-year old Ariana from a previous relationship.
