The Glow Is Real: Our Countdown Of The Cutest Pregnant Celebrities
Pregnancy can sometimes be the least glamorous time in a woman’s life, but there’s a lot to be said for the pregnancy glow when it comes to these expectant celebrities. From Beyonce to Alicia Keys to Halle Berry, here’s a look at some of the cutest pregnant celebrities.
OK, maybe this is jumping the gun a bit … oh, come on. Who are we kidding? A friend of Kerry Washington, the center of all things fashionable and classic, recently announced that she is several months pregnant. And while she has done an excellent job hiding her growing belly, we have not one shred of doubt that when the “Scandal” star does start showing, she will be quite the maternity stunner.
Since busting onto the music scene in 2001, Alicia Keys has certainly undergone quite the transformation. From her sound to her style, Keys has definitely matured over the last several years, but even more so after becoming pregnant with her first child with hubby Swizz Beatz. Keys parlayed her more grown and sexay look into ultra-sophisticated, incredibly adorable maternity style. While we’re not sure if she’s itching to pop out a few more kids, we certainly wouldn’t mind seeing this songstress enter the mommy game again.
Since the minute she walked the MTV VMA red carpet and announced her pregnancy to the world after belting out “Love on Top,” we knew we were in for one adorable nine-month stretch. Beyonce’s very open, very honest excitement over the little baller inside of her was so evident that it helped to enhance an already incredible sense of maternity style. She was not going to be relegated to baggy, unflattering fashions. Nope, Sasha Fierce was just as enviably stylish as you’d expect. We’re just surprised she never decided to revisit her Single Ladies-esque looks. Now that would have been memorable.
Gwen Stefani, without a doubt, reigns at the top of the pregnant celebrity game. The No Doubt singer and style icon has approached each of her pregnancies with a rock n’ roll edge, carefully balanced with an ultra-modern touch. One of her most jaw-dropping looks: The floor-length Ferragamo fringe dress she wore to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Gala in Beverly Hills. Bold and beautiful Stefani once again showed a powerful woman wearing pregnancy just as well as she does her incredible dresses.
Though she has not displayed her full out bun in the oven, there’s little doubt that Olivia Wilde will make one cute pregnant celeb. Her understated elegance and awareness of fashions that truly show off her best assets will only carry over as she grows just a tad bit bigger in the months to come. And with a man as hilarious as Jason Sudeikis by her side, you know she’ll approach mommyhood with a great spirit.
If the photo above doesn’t completely win you over we don’t know what will. That smile, that loving grasp of her baby bump. Yup, Tamera Mowry was too cute.
Does it get ant cuter than this? Though Monica may have taken a while to own up to her baby bump this year, when she finally did with adorable pregnancy pics like this with hubby Shannon Brown we were overjoyed.
Adrienne Bosh is clearly getting her babies out the way back to back but her pregnancy glow is just as bright every single go ’round.
Don’t you just hate Jenna Dewan-Tatum. If marrying one of Hollywood’s most attractive leading men wasn’t enough, she also had to look absolutely incredible throughout her pregnancy. The beautiful star of “Witches of East End” decked out her baby bump in designer threads and continued to stun on the red carpet in body-flattering gowns. And all the while, she had that lovely hunk of man by her side. Sigh.
Many of our beloved Spice Girls have pushed out a little one or two over the last several years, but there is no doubt that Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown’s pregnancy was definitely the most adorable of the bunch. Granted,the infamous leopard-print bikini photo might have been a little jarring, but her fearlessness is exactly what landed her a spot on our list. Not to mention that with the flawless hair and make-up Mel B was rocking, anything was going to look awesome on her.
Mrs. Wiz Khalifa was as bold during her pregnancy as she has been throughout her career. Not only did Rose dare to to rock some skintight ensembles to show off her growing belly, but even after she gave birth to her son Sebastian, she was willing to share some intimate details of her pregnancy. Most notably, she shared that she had checked in at about 202 pounds at the time of her son’s birth. Given how much flack celebs are given about their fluctuating pregger weight, it was nice to see a celeb not willing to down play it.
Without question, Paula Patton emerged as one of the most stylish, fashion-forward and absolutely cute celebrity mommies to be of the last several years. What made her pregnancy so adorable? It was how genuinely radiant she looked throughout her nine months. Despite gaining a solid amount of weight, Paula didn’t back away from showing off her baby-fied figure. And husband Robin Thicke certainly didn’t seem to mind. At the 2010 Oscars, Robin Thicke said to his wife: “You look beautiful, you look perfect. You’re the hottest baby mama around.” Agreed.
OK, we know, we know. She’s a supermodel and a Victoria’s Secret angel. Of course she’s going to look amazing regardless of what the scale may say. But there is no denying that despite the fact that most women (myself included) were green with envy when we saw her waddling around with an adorable bump, that girl certainly knew how to play up her pregnancy. Cloaked in incredible threads, Ambrosio embraced being a first-time mom and looked great doing it.
This list wouldn’t be complete without one of Hollywood’s most beautiful women being mentioned. Halle Berry hasn’t had it easy when it comes to her love life, but we were over the moon when she became pregnant with her second child with new love Olivier Martinez. As was true during her first stint as a mommy-to-be, Berry embraced her baby bump and didn’t shy away from being a red carpet stunner and even keeping it stylish when she was trying to stay out of the public eye. And we have to give her some bonus points for not pimping her pregnancy. She has kept a low profile and seems to be really taking care of her personal life, which we can certainly respect.
