ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Pregnancy Confirmations: Zoe Saldana and Hayden Panettiere (VIDEOS)

A couple of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms Zoe Saldana and Hayden Panettiere used the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to confirm their respective pregnancies.
While getting a bucket of ice and water poured on their head to raise funds and awareness for the debilitating Lou Gehrig‘s disease, each star made their first public acknowledgment that they are with child. 
The viral sensation has been going around social media for a while now. The ALS Association, which works on awareness, research and a cure for the rare disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, saw the challenged and got celebrities involved. The star aspect has been successful in getting the group to raise over $41 million, the New York Times has reported The foundation received $19.4 million in proceeds last year, but thanks to 739,000 new donors, the ALS Association doubled its donations in one month, it said.
Saldana actually didn’t pour ice water over her head but had her hubby do it instead.
“I am accepting James Gunn‘s challenge to take on the ice bucket challenge in support of finding a cure for ALS…,” the Guaradians of the Galaxy star said while rubbing her pregnant belly. “Obviously, I can’t do it myself so I nominate my husband to take on the challenge.” 

The Avatar actress and her hubby Marc Perego then nominated James Cameron, Aileen Getty, Ron Burkle, and Francois Pinault to accept the challenge next. 
Well…technically, there is nothing stopping a pregnant woman from getting ice and water poured on her head…and in fact, Panettiere one upped Saldana  by actually going through it herself. 
The Nashville star summoned help from her buddy Dancing with the Star’s Derek Hough to pour the ice, but just before she said, “I accept my ALS Challenge. I renominate Kacey Musgraves — you’re not getting out of this, [fiance] Wladimir Klitschko, and my unborn child.”

“Couldn’t figure out how to post it on twitter,” Hough, who is currently guest starring in an upcoming role on Nashville, wrote in the caption. “So I’m posting it for her.”

At the Hollywood premiere of the movie on Monday, July 21 at the Dolby Theater in LA, she looked to be attempting to hide the bump in a curious Louis Vuitton outfit. Nice try mama. Her publicist gave up and confirmed the news that week anyway.

The Best Maternity Bridesmaid Dresses for Every Bridal Party Look

Shop our favorite retailers for the perfect pregnant bridesmaid dress.

So you have a pregnant lady in your bridal party. First thought: Yay! Second thought: Oh, boy! (Or girl!) How to dress all your bridesmaids—including your pregnant bridesmaid—in the bridesmaid dress of your dreams? Don’t fret! You’re not the first bride-to-be with an expectant bridesmaid in your bridal party, and you certainly won’t be the last. Thankfully, many bridesmaid dress companies are recognizing that fact. Believe us: There are plenty of stunning maternity bridesmaid dresses to choose from today, and we’re putting them all in one place for you! Whether you’re going with mismatched bridesmaid dresses (i.e., giving your ladies a colour or style to look for and letting them choose the dress they feel most comfortable in) or crave a more uniform look, we’ve found gowns you (and your pregnant ‘maid) will love.



The Dessy Group


For an endless variety of cuts and colors, it’s hard to beat The Dessy Group! In addition to carrying go-to brands like Alfred Sung, After Six and its own collection, the store has a dedicated lineup of maternity bridesmaid dresses. Better yet, many of the styles come in dozens of shades for any wedding color palette. We like this long maternity bridesmaid dress for its empire waistline and unique neckline. It doesn’t hurt that it comes in everything from a moody, black floral “Noir Garden” pattern to a solid, purpleish peony hue called “Enchanted.” And FYI, everything sold by The Dessy Group comes in plus sizes up to size 30.



Seraphine—a favourite of Duchess Kate and Zoe Saldana’s—is known for its stunning collection of formal maternity dresses, including pregnant bridesmaid dresses. While the brand is pricey overall, the quality and refined details are hard to beat. We love this floor-length blush stunner for its lace bodice, cap sleeves and jewelled waistband.



This fast-fashion retailer may not be dedicated to wedding wear, but it actually has a vast assortment of bridesmaid dresses—including maternity bridesmaid dresses. The site is our source for inexpensive, trendy options, with some timeless styles thrown in there too. (It’s also got an inclusive array of tall, petite and plus size attire for the rest of your bridal party.) Can you stay stunning? This springy yellow maternity bridesmaid gown has a trendy off-the-shoulder neckline, a sparkly sequin bodice and pretty pleats. Oh, and it won’t break the bank. (It also comes in a cool silvery gray shade.)
