TV and Lifestyle personality Whitney Port is keeping it real with her fans and followers by re-invigorated her 4-year old YouTube channel and launching a vlog series to document her pregnancy.
It’s called “I love my baby, but I hate my pregnancy” and through it, the former star of MTV‘s The Hills and The City, gives an unfiltered look into the highs and most of the lows and difficulties with her pregnancy. But don’t get it twisted. I don’t think she is complaining because I think she knows pregnancy is a blessing or fortunate thing that not all women who want to experience it can.
I do think Port just wants to connect to her pregnant sisters in the struggle. I get it. Her husband video tapes her, often times, in bed, without make up, eating yogurt, tossled hair and just giving it straight, no chaser.
“I am by no means telling you guys what to do, or how to deal with your pregnancy,” she says in her first vlog. “Just thought, from one pregnant woman to another, that it would be fun to share the journey with you.”
In episode one, she also shared the fact that the pregnancy was unexpected. She was preparing to have an MRI and was told that she couldn’t be pregnant so she decided to take a test. Chapter three was posted yesterday.
It’s really good, I think. I like and think it’s worth checking out because I appreciate honesty and candor. We’ve already seen the perfect nurseries, the gorgeous baby bumps, beautiful baby moons and high fashion maternity shoots most pregnant celebs share on their social media feeds. Good for Whit!
