A few years ago, we blogged about how female film stars were losing out on film projects once producers discovered they were pregnant. That’s why it was refreshing to catch a broadcast of Project Runway’s All-Star featuring a very pregnant Alyssa Milano as a host on the latest season of that show. She hosted it last year as well.
The franchise is quite pregnant lady friendly as creator and original host Heidi Klum was also very pregnant during one past season of the general Project Runway fashion designer contest show.
We also noticed that another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Vanessa Simmons started her gig on Project Runway Threads (the version for child-designers) right after giving birth to her daughter Ava Marie
It must be a thing with fashion shows because Kristin Cavallari starred in season one of the E! show The Fabulist while she was expecting her second child.
It’s all good news for the future of working pregnant moms in the industry. Well at least on the small screen.
