For us regular folk, pregnancy usually isn't glamorous thing. It's true, most expecting moms don't look or feel at all like they're "glowing." And with celebrities setting impossible standards for pregnant women with picture-perfect photo ops, barely there bumps and even more unbelievable snapbacks, it's harder than ever to just be pregnant. Most pregnancies aren't glamorous, so we're shouting out these stars who keep it real.
No rabbit food over here! The mommy-to-be looks like she wanted to enjoy a delicious diner brunch with all the fixings — eggs, potatoes, breakfast meat, toast — in peace, that is until Joe Budden captured the not-so glam moment. But even getting her grub on, Cyn is glowing.
We especially appreciate her post about getting trolled for having a “big” pregnancy nose and how she embraces the physical changes that come with carrying a child.
Instead of another staged pregnancy photo, the Sister, Sister star gives us a peek of her at-home look. She gets her karaoke on with her hair tied, makeup-free and wearing a nightie (or a dusty, if you're from Chicago).
She may already be a mom of one, but she's definitely not a know-it-all. The supermodel and cookbook author turns to Twitter when she needs answers about her bump.
“I’m not a spring chicken," Williams told Vogue while she was preggo with baby Alexis Olympia. "The one thing I really want is an epidural, which I know a lot of people are against, but I’ve had surgeries galore, and I don’t need to experience any more pain if I can avoid it. But the biggest thing is that I don’t really think I’m a baby person. Not yet. That’s something I have to work on. I’m so used to me-me-me, taking care of my health, my body, my career. I always ask, Am I going to be good enough?”
What can't Queen Bey slay? Check pregnancy lips off the list, because while haters were talking smack about her noticeably larger pout (so much so, her rep had to release a statement) while she was pregnant with the Carter twins, she was giving us life on the 'gram as per usual.
The music icon decided that this black 'fit topped by a very roomy poncho was her outfit of choice while pregnant with her son, Eissa, because who has time for a bodycon dress when you are getting ready to push a whole human being out of your body?
She did it again (and pretty much her throughout her whole pregnancy) when she stepped out in another all-black look. We envy this level of comfort!
Kimmy's feet were the talk of the town every time she stepped out with her feet squished into a pair of heels when she was pregnant with North West. She addressed her swollen feet with a cheeky IG post and it went down as one of the few moments the reality star was remotely relatable.
"I was 202 pounds when I had my son. But I'm tall, so it didn't look like it," she told E! while pregnant with Sebastian. As for her snapback? It was no overnight miracle. She took her time in losing the weight over several months while training with Jeanette Jenkins.
