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.

The Original: Our RoundUp of the Best Celebrity Baby Showers (PHOTOS)

We have institutional memory of this stuff and we’ve come to the conclusion that Adrienne and Chris Bosh have THE MOST lavish and detailed-oriented celebrity baby showers of all time!

Before Vogue, Marie Claire UK and Glamour did their own versions of celebrity baby showers round up with more recent showers, we posted ours last January 2016. The original.  Here is ours again, in case you missed it (we’re going to have to update it later, though)

The 2013 Parisian-themed baby shower that the NBA star and his wife had for the arrival of their daughter Dylan Skye was over the top! It featured at least one dozen different, elaborate and exquisitely decorated cakes.

For party favors, guests, which included fellow Heat star player Dwayne Wade and his actress wife Gabrielle Union, got Neiman Marcus gift cards to take home. They also got to create their very own perfume.

The Garden-themed Southern shower they had to welcome their first child, now 3-year old Jackson, in 2012 was very cute but not as over-the-top.

Now that the star of the NBA‘s Miami Heat and his wife are expecting twin boys, we cannot wait to see what fantabulous extravaganza is put on the celebrate the arrival of the #BoshTwins, who already have their own hashtag and everything.

But first, let’s reflect on all the pristine, frilly, feminine cuteness that was Dylan (and Jackson’s) showers with these throwback picks. Divine Delicacies Custom Cakes, Jackie Ohh Events and Avante Gardens helped plan the event.

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.

WHCD: Our Fave Celeb Moms head to Tonight’s #NerdProm 

nerd prom22


Tonight is the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, also known as “Nerd Prom. ”

It’s a time when DC hosts Hollywood A-Listers and journalists that cover the White House at the annual event thrown by the membership group of journalists and TV correspondents.

During the cocktails then dinner event, DC’s political elite mingle with Tinsel Town’s.

Traditionally, the President of the United States speaks and roasts the media, political allies and foes and blend in pop culture.

This will be President Barack Obama’s last Nerd Prom.

Celebrities come as guests of various news organizations.

Tickets are coveted and hard to get. I’ve never even ever bothered to try to network my way into an invite.

You practically have to pledge your first child.

This year, I noticed that frequent Nerd Prom goer Kerry Washington is a guest.



She posted a photo of herself inside the White House in front Hillary Clinton‘s First Lady portrait.

Also, noticed that our other Bumpwatch alum Tamera Mowry-Housely and family are also in town. I’m assuming she will be a guest of her husband, FOX News Correspondent Adam Housely.

 

So fun! The Housley’s at the #thewhitehouse ❤️

It appears Gabriel Union is in town too based on her Instagram photo today tagged “The White House”.  Looks like the annual Tammy Haddad Garden brunch that takes place the morning of the event.

Hmmm…I wonder if she will be in town too.

UPDATE*** She is here and is Snapchatting her experience. Woot! Check her dress and hair for the Nerd Prom!

Tyra Banks and Chrissy Tiegen Open up About Fertility Struggles

fab life

The same week that Gabrielle Union opened up about fertility struggles, Tyra Banks and Chrissy Tiegen are also sharing about their personal battles.

A clip from Banks’ new lifestyle show,  FABLife, reveals the two models getting real on what they’ve gone through to start a family.

Tiegen revealed that in the 10 years she has been with and later married to John Legend, she has spent some of that time trying to conceive but it has been hard and she sort of resents the constant prying by others asking when she will start a family.

The outspoken in social media star said she is asked about it“every single time I sit down for an interview with anybody.”

She seems to resent it.

“I can’t imagine being that nosy to be like, ‘So, when are the kids coming?’” she says. “Because who knows what somebody’s going through?… I will say, honestly, John and I were having trouble…it’s been a process. We’ve seen fertility doctors, and then once you open up about all those things to other people you start learning that a lot of other people in your life are seeing these people, and they have this shame about it.”

Banks said she could relate.

“I am so tired of seeing on my social media, ‘Why don’t you have kids? Why don’t you have kids?’ You don’t know — you don’t know what I’m going through,” she said, breaking into tears. “When I was 23 years old, I used to tell myself, ‘In three years, I’m going to have kids.’ Then I turned 24. ‘In three years, I’m going to have kids.’ Every single year I kept saying that. And then after awhile, it’s like, OK, now I want to, and it’s not so easy.”

The episode will air this Monday but you can Watch the clip from the show below:
