The Wendy Williams show

Kelly Rowland is not the first celebrity to work out intensely while pregnant

Just saw on The Wendy Williams Show mention that Kelly Rowland is apparently catching a lot of flak from fans on the Internet over her Instagram pics showing that the Destiny’s Child band member and chart topping solo artist has been having an active pregnancy which includes working out regularly.

Unfortunately, many of her critics must be unaware that maintaining an active lifestyle including regular exercise is actually recommended by doctors so long as it is done in moderation, is balanced with hydration and a healthy diet and is keeping with the type of activity the mom-to-be had before she got pregnant. In other words, inactive cubicle hermits shouldn’t be doing what she is doing to stay fit while pregnant but a globe-trotting performer who dances regularly can. Furthermore,  she is not the only physically active and currently pregnant celebrity. MTV’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who is expecting her second child currently with fiance Jionni LaValle,  frequenlty shares photos from the gym during this second pregnancy.
Also,  former WWE wrestler Stacy Keibler, who also known for being the long time ex girlfriend of George Clooney has been on several fitness magazines and done many interviews where she shares all of her work out secrets. She does Pilates 4 times a day and for the “Making of” video for her Fit Pregnancy cover shoot, she explained that she has been working out most days of her pregnancy doing  muscle toning work outs sometimes four times a day, playing tennis, hiking, golfing and meditating. Her trainer noted  in that Daily Mail article that said Keibler doesn’t eat junk food and eats clean. During her recent baby shower, hosts provided guests healthy  sugar-, dairy- and gluten-free foods. Again, it’s all about the type of woman she was before pregnancy. It doesn’t change after pregnancy and  just because you didn’t used to see it in social media doesn’t mean Rowland wasn’t a work out fiend before. 
Other celebrities like Married to Jonas star  Danielle Jonas, who recently welcomed her first child with husband Kevin Jonas, Instagrammed themselves working out often during their respective pregnancies and didn’t seem to get much push-back.
Alec Baldwin‘s Pilates Instructor wife Hilaria Baldwin,  Kristin Cavallari, Teresa Palmer and international model Doutzen Kroes all Instagrammed themselves working out during their pregnancies. (see above collage)

We are very proud of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Ivanka Trump, Daphne Oz, Kristin Cavallari, Danielle Jonas, Emily Deschanel, Molly Sims for their Fit Pregnancy  magazine covers and hope to see one of Kelly soon!

The Chew’s Daphne Oz dishes to Wendy Williams, says dad Dr.Oz won’t be in delivery room

Can we adopt The Chew TV hostess Daphne Oz as our celebrity pregnancy spokes model?
The mom-to-be whose dad is famed TV doc Dr. Oz visited The Wendy Williams show on January 22 and dished on her pregnancy. Daphne and her investment banker husband since 2010 John Jovanovic  are expecting their first baby on March 6.
Daphne was featured on the cover of the latest issue of Fit Pregnancy  magazine and it is fitting as she has a healthy approach to unloading the post-pregnancy weight.
“First of all, I didn’t start off a size 2 so I’m not trying to get back there,” the down-to-earth blond said after revealing she struggled with her weight her entire life. “I also kind of feel like it took me 9 months to get here, I put on like 30 lbs, it’s going to take 9 months to get back there.”
Kudos!
 “I’m not rushing there,” she added. “My most important thing is to keep my nutrition strong,so I want to breastfeed, so I want my baby to get everything, I’m not going on a diet route.”
We also love her healthy approach to sensuality. When Wendy pried as she does so well and inquired about Daphne Oz’s sex life, she opened up about how pregnancy actually liberated her from issues she had growing up.
Like many women, she said she had body image issues and never felt comfortable in her clothes and skin but being pregnant “you own every bit of it.”
She added, “that’s the most attractive quality, I mean I think pregnancy is sexy anyway, but I think that you can own your self-confidence, that’s the biggest thing,” 
Oz has 6 weeks left and is due March 6. She said she is getting the ultimate “push” present and doesn’t know the gender of her baby. She also told Wendy that her dad will NOT be in the delivery room but her mom and husband will.
