They’re Like A Lot of Us: 40 Celeb Women Who Had Unwed Pregnancies

Bellyitch Rewind

halle-natalie

About 4 years ago, we blogged about how tons of celebrities welcome babies with men they ar not married to and how they, unlike most women, are not shamed for it.

Several, like Heidi Klum and Kelis break up before the baby is even born. The mention is not to bash different lifestyle choices or situations but just to point out the prevalence of premarital pregnancy in Hollywood.

Of the several dozens women Bellyitch has “bumpwatched” since its inception in 2007, the lion’s share or bulk of them were technically single (though possibly attached or engaged) while pregnant.

 Also, to a certain extent, these blessings, each of them, are celebrated and cheered. Meanwhile, average non-celebrity women who have children out-of-wedlock are traditionally trashed, bashed and shamed, by society.
 It’s a double standard, no doubt. But alas, these are changing times and traditional notions and norms are altering too.
Here is a list of 40 celebrity women ( from our old post in 2013, there have been many more since then) who got pregnant before going down the aisle, including some that didn’t even want a ring, and some that are still happily single (in no particular order):
1. Kim Kardashian

2. Salma Hayek

3. KimZolciak

4. Amber Rose

5. Victoria Beckham

6. Kelis

7. Emma Bunton

8. Halle Berry

9. Natalie Portman

10. Jennifer Hudson

11. Snooki

12. Lauryn Hill

13. Kristin Cavallari

14. Melanie Brown

15. Heidi Klum

16. Fantasia Barrino

17. Isla Fisher

18. Nia Long

19. Drew Barrymore

20. Yandy Smith

21. Kate Hudson

22. Jill Scott

23. Britney Spears

24. Nicole Richie

25. Kate Winslet

26. Alicia Keys

27. Jessica Simpson

28. Keyshia Cole

29. Michelle Williams

30. Lauren London

31. January Jones

32. Miranda Kerr

33. Kourtney Kardashian

34. Nivea

35. Jamie Lyn Spears

LAX Style: Only Celebs Look This Good for A Flight

airport style

Yes Celebrity Airport Style is a thing. Regular folks like you and I know that when we travel by air, we need to be comfortable so we may layer t-shirts, wear jeans, yoga or jogging pants, slip on shoes and a sweater or shawl. But if you know that you will be photographed by tons of paparazzi from the curb to the gate, you might as well look fabulous, right?

I mean, there are  even Tumblr blogs dedicated to Celebrity Airport Fashion.  Here are how some our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums dressed pretty chic, sophisticated and heavily over-styled for taking a flight.

#WHCD/#NerdProm: All the Red Carpet Looks We Loved (PHOTOS)

I watched the red carpet arrivals to last night’s annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner  held at the Washington Hilton in Washingtonl DC and I spotted several of the celebrity women we’ve spotlighted on the blog before.

Kerry Washington is a regular to the event as she is an ally of the Obama administration and has been very active on several of his campaigns and policy initiatives. She attended the event this year in a black one shoulder dress with ruffles at the trim made by another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Victoria Beckham with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Stuart Weitzman heels, accented with Neil Lane jewelry.

A Look At Chrissy Teigen’s 2nd Trimester Maternity Style

 

teigens' style

And now for the portion of our coverage when we dissect Chrissy Teigen’s second trimester looks.

Teigen announced  in October that she was expecting her first child with her husband John Legend and we have been loving her maternity style!

Teigen hilariously told InStyle Australia and she and Legend come from a family of bigger people and said they have to watch what they eat and exercise otherwise they’ll blow up.

Well, you wouldn’t be able to tell by the way she remained pretty svelte and still able to get away with some edgy fashion for her second trimester of her pregnancy.  She stuck with A-line dresses but didn’t shy away from mixing and matching pieces too.

  1. I love the color of this Malene Birgir vertical striped silk dress. Hey, when you’ve got the legs, right?! Teigen went with Givenchy Clark Shark Lock Suede Sandals in a neutral color to match her camel colored coat. Fab!
  2. I did a Splurge/Steal post on this very cute outfit Teigen wore shortly after announcing her pregancy. There was tremendous buzz over the outfit because it was sheer as well.

  3. I like the plaid A-Line  shirt dress Teigen while out and about. It’s freeing yet still stylish.  This Peak-lapel wool-blend coat by Mugler worn overtop is fierce and as it should be when paired with a sharp black Hermes Birkin bag. And I want those Chloe platform boots but am bummed they’re sold out at Neiman’s. Shucks! Teigen capped off the look with a pair of aviator shades by Victoria Beckham.

  4. Teigen loves her friend Beckham who outfitted her in this cute white mini dress. It is simple and chic and the bun makes it even cuter. And I was surprised to find out thse gold Kurt Geiger KG Hero Platforms are reasonably priced at just $64. Nice!

5. This Lace Trimmed Pencil Skirt dress by Self Portrait actually sold out, I believe after it was part of a trending topic on Social Media. Teigen wore look at an event also during the same week after she announced her pregnancy. It too was much buzzed about!

That was an A+ maternity look for the Second Trimester! Let’s see what Teigen and her stylist team bring us for this last trimester she is heading into. (if not already in)

 

Family & Holiday Photos Celebs Shared on Instagram This Week

instagram this week celebs

This week, the celebrity families we’ve covered in the past, and generally, took to Instagram to share some tender Holiday moments. For example, Nick Cannon is having a grand time decorating the home with his twins Monroe and Moroccan, and even reuniting with his ex-wife Mariah Carey for some fun too.

Kensington Palace released a new photo of the Royal Family, Kate, William, Charlotte and George. The new pic looks like a holiday card but was likely taking in October as Charlotte is wearing the same floral dress from the last photo released of just her sitting in a gingham print chair.

Some celebs are busy finding creative ways to photograph the Elf on the Shelf and Busy Phillips is doing a pretty good job.

Here are some other photos celebs shared on Instagram this week.

The Top 10 Most “Googled” Celebrity Kids

Bellyitch Rewind

BuzzFeed has a quiz article out that asks which recently born or currently incubating celebrity baby will “reign supreme” in the future and be the “it” children that will be the most popular and most followed.
When you first see the headline, one may be inclined to roll  one’s eyes and question why we have become a society that obsesses with children of celebrities.
But given that Bellyitch Blog since 2007 has covered and follows celebrity pregnancies, we must say that we have noticed that indeed there are certain celebrity off springs that get more attention than others. 
Consider the fact that there are several websites like this and this one dedicated to Suri Cruise‘s fashion. And the offspring of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise is keeping food on people’s table. The author of a satirical website, Suri’s Burn Book, was able to parlay her popular snarky Tumblr blog about the tot to tween into a lucrative book deal. 
Before Prince George even turned, he was already the star of  the What Prince George Wore blog.  Many people are also obsessed of how Blue Ivy and North West are wearing their hair and being dressed by their duo famous parents, Beyonce and Jay Z; and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Perhaps because their parents are popular, or they get the most paparazzi following them around or simply editors at magazines keep greenlighting articles about them, there are definitely more popular celeb kids.
From our unscientific and independent survey of various articles, stories and Google images that crop up under the subject “celebrity kid”, we’ve noticed that the top 10, who have the most images, include:

1. Suri Cruise (Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise)

2. Blue Ivy  (Beyonce Knowles and Shawn Jay Z Carter)

Harper and Victoria Beckham

3. Prince George (Kate Middleton and Prince William)

4. Nahla Aubry (Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry)

5. North West (Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West)

6. Kingston Rossdale (Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale)

7. Mason Disick (Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick)

8. Skylar Berman (Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman)

9. Zahra Jolie-Pitt (Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt)

10. Harper Beckhan (Victoria Beckham and David Beckham)

What do you think? Who are the most popular celeb kids in your book? Do you think we obsess too much over celebrity children.

How Having a Baby Can Revive your Career in Hollywood

In 2011, Mommyish’s did a post about so-called “DList” celebrities who got more famous after having a baby. Actually, it reminded me of a piece we did earlier, in January that year that writer and TV personality Teresa Strasser wrote for us, “Top Celebrity Baby Exploiters of 2010“.

In that piece, Strasser  exalted about how pregnancy can easily launch a reality TV cast member into the public spotlight and on the cover of the top gossip mags. 

That was also the year for the 20th anniversary of Demi Moore’s iconic Vanity Fair cover which we’ve determined was also the start of the public’s infectious interest in celebrity pregnancies.
And it’s gone even more mainstream in recent years.
While watching back episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (again late as usual), I noted Kim Kardashian stating that since she got pregnant, the paparazzi were even more ferocious and viral in search of pics.  So true, as we’ve blogged before here, Kim, Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, Snooki and Beyonce‘s respective pregnancies garnered the most stories written by traditional media and other outlets that do not usually cover celebrity parents and pregnancy. 
In year’s past, we’d say such media organizations and writers may have even looked down on gossip blogs and mags that “bumpwatched.”
Not anymore. They’re right here in the pepper pot with the US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, OK!, People, PopSugar, E!Online, CelebLaundry, Perez Hilton  and BellyitchBlog‘s of the world!
Yes, the Celebrity Bumpwatch Phenomenon is alive and thriving.
 Indeed!

50+ Celebrities who have had Miscarriages

 
When news leaks too early that a celebrity woman is pregnant and then she never confirms it, then fails to advance in the pregnancy, there is a high possibility that she might have had a miscarriage.

Since our blog post in 2007 about celebrity miscarriages and the taboo surrounding the topic, many more other sites have reported on celebrity miscarriages and more celebs themselves have been open about discussing a loss that happens in 1 in every 4 pregnancies or among 25% of women.

After TV host and journalist Lisa Ling came out about suffering through one herself, she added a category to her website encouraging women to share their miscarriage stories.

If more women, including celebrities, knew how common miscarriage is and how many have dealt with and suffered through it, but survived, they may be better able to cope if and when it happens to them.

To help that process along, here is a pretty comprehensive listing of all the celebrities we’ve found quoted to have had at least one miscarriage before going on to have a successful pregnancy, adopting, having a child via surrogacy or not at all.

Celebrities and Pregorexia: All about super skinny pregnant celebrities

Celebrities like Selma Blair, Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham, Miranda Kerr & Bethenny Frankel who managed to remain thin while pregnant may unwillingly contribute to rising cases of pregorexia among average women.
Sheknows.com spoke with a eating disorder therapist who broke down the rising problem of pregorexia, a condition where a mom-to-be refuses to eat enough for herself and developing baby over fears of weight gain. It even delves into the media and celebrities’ role in contributing to the increase in pregorexia cases nationwide.

In the piece, Sharon Zimbler, a marriage and family therapist posits about the woman who is suffering from this clinical disorder:
The woman may have had an eating disorder before she became pregnant that may or may not have been diagnosed. Oftentimes, women who have “disordered eating” or serious body-image issues may find themselves overwhelmed with the weight gain associated with pregnancy. These women may start developing an eating disorder during their pregnancies.
Media and societal influences affect our ideas of what pregnancy should look like. Unfortunately, we are inundated with images of very thin women barely gaining weight during pregnancy, only to find these same women losing their baby weight soon after the birth of their children. Many women find themselves worried about losing their baby weight before they even have their babies.
Women with established eating disorders suffer from cognitive distortions, which affect their ability to perceive themselves accurately. A woman may think she is eating a certain amount, but may actually be eating less than she realizes, or a woman may think she is not overexercising but actually is.
A woman with an eating disorder lacks perspective on her behaviors. Women with eating disorders have a strong need to control things in their lives. They do this by controlling what they eat or don’t eat. They also control whether they keep the food down. Women with pregorexia feel they have lost control over their bodies.
