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! Here are the first three posts:
Former reality TV show star of The Hills and The City, Whitney Port’s life is pretty rosy and beautiful by the looks of her Instagram page. It’s the quintessential lifestyle blogger profile.
However, the newly pregnant entrepreneur is getting real about carrying a baby.
“Pregnancy has not been easy for me,” she admitted. “I’m not going to say that it’s all glowy skin and sunshine and butterflies.”
But despite all the “weird things” happening to her body, and feeling “gross all the time” during her first trimester, she’s excited about what’s to come: “There’s a fine line between complaining and dealing with it,” she said. “I try to be positive, because it is such a wonderful thing.”
In a recent feature in Health.com, Port shares four tips that have helped her stay calm and balanced through the early stages of her pregnancy. They’re pretty good tips.
Port announced that she and her husband are expecting their first child in a humorous post on Instagram in February. It is the first child for them both.

Last month, I did a round up of all the female alums from the MTV reality TV shows Laguna Beach and its spinoff, The Hills who are now married with kids.
Whitney Port, who starred in two seasons of her own spinoff called The City and currently manages a lifestyle brand, was one of three who did not have a kid yet or wasn’t pregnant.
Little did I know back then that Port was pregnant but was still early. The rising fashion designer and QVC presenter just announced her pregnancy news this weekend on Instagram.
“Oh hey! Just standing by the window in my underwear, with a BABY in my belly,” she wrote alongside a Friday Instagram post. “DM me if you know what I’m supposed to do with this thing for how ever many years I’m supposed to be in charge.”
Port is married to Tim Rosenmann, who was an associate producer on her show The City.
She also directed fans to her blog to a post titled, “WE’RE PREGNANT!!!”
