Emily Deschanel, Alicia Silverstone and Jennifer Garner each bucked the trend this year and proved that it’s okay to just be you and not succumb to Hollywood pressure. These three were the celebrites who were most comfortable in their pregnant skin.
Despite crticism and calls to change her vegan diet, Deschanel, who delivered her first baby, a son, this September, stuck with it and with consult from experts, succeeded in staying healthy all pregnancy long. In the cover story for Fit Pregnancy, Deschanel shared that the secret to a vegan pregnancy was the supplements and plenty of B vitamins.
While some pregnant celebrities, realizing the extra scrutiny and photog presence, tried to maintain a fashionable appearance during their pregnancies, Silverstone kept it cool and super relaxed. She was photographed often in her sweats and make up less. She did glam it up while doing a guest host appearance on KTLA TV and again in a Vogue spread wearing environmentaly friendly designs. Silverstone delivered a son bearing one of the most unique celebrity names this year, Bear Blu, on May 5.
Jennifer Garner recently told In Style magazine that she wishes she could squeeze into skinny maternity jeans like some of the other pregnant super svelt starlets out there, but was going to keep it real and just watch what she ate to stave off the extra pounds. She was spotted often taking her kids to school and to random outings looking very comfortable, yet still fashionable. She wore the conservative pregnancy line Isabella Oliver often and looked like the average down to earth mom who just also happens to be a well paid A list Hollywood movie actress, never coming off as pretentious or self-involved. Garner and husband actor Ben Affleck are expecting their third child early next year. The two have two daughters Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, who turns 3 next month and Violet Anne, who turned 5 earlier this month.
