Pregnancy was one of the happiest moments in the lives of these celebrities. And with that beautiful pregnancy glow came a few extra pounds, but of course. Some of these celebrity women gained as much as 100 pounds while carrying their children, sometimes to the shock and cruel remarks of the public. But even though they were still smack dab in the middle of the limelight, they refused to let Hollywood and public pressure get them down. Because when nature is taking its course, mother’s know the last thing they need to be concerned with is what people think of how they look.
So, to be open and honest, and to also show how quickly they snapped back, these celebrity women opened up about just how many pounds they put on during pregnancy, and they made themselves just that much more relatable to fans. Learn more about their journey to motherhood.
Finding out you’re pregnant can be one of the most exciting moments in a person’s life and the expectant mothers and fathers often want to share their joyful news in major ways. Here are some of the cutest celebrity pregnancy announcements to hit the Internets in recent years.
Tamera Mowry took to Instagram to announce that she was expecting her second child. She posted a photo of herself holding a positive pregnancy test letting the world know she and Adam are #ClearBlueConfirmed. But Chrissy Teigen was accused of trying to rain on the “Sister, Sister” star’s parade after she posted a comment asking how much stars are being paid by Clear Blue to push their pregnancy tests. Hater much?
At the start of this year, newlywed Denise Vasi revealed that unlike the rest of her “Single Ladies” co-stars, who had several projects lined up after the season wrapped, she would be taking some time off to be a full-time wife to her new husband, Anthony Mandler.
“I have a husband and I’ll be playing the role of a wife,” she said during a backstage interview at the “Queen Latifah Show.” “I like to take time off.”
Apparently, the 31-year-old has been quite busy in her time off as she recently announced that she is expecting her first child. The pregnancy announcement came in an adorable series of photos of Denise and Anthony, which were accompanied by nursery rhyme captions.
“Anthony & Denise sitting in a tree,” she began.
“K-I-S-S-I-N-G… First comes LOVE ❤️,” she continued.
“Then comes MARRIAGE…”
“Then comes BABY in the baby carriage #vasimandlerbaby.”
Anthony also took to Instagram to share the news via the very same photo. His caption reads:
“The greatest creation is on it’s way….feeling loved, humbled and beyond excited. @denisevasi my partner my lover my wife. MIV #vasimandlerbaby.”
Naturally, their announcement prompted an outpour of congratulatory messages from followers, fans and friends alike. It’s unclear how far along the Brooklyn-born actress is in her pregnancy, but we’re figuring she doesn’t have an extremely long way to go.
Well here’s some news that we definitely did not see coming. Yesterday, Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys announced that she is expecting her second child with husband, Swizz Beatz. The announcement came in the form of a very sweet Instagram message from Alicia celebrating their wedding anniversary.
“Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz,” she exclaimed. “And to make it even sweeter we’ve been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here’s to many, many more years of the best parts of life!”
This will be the couple’s second child. They’re already the parents of adorable Egypt Dean, who is 3 years old. While the singer’s big announcement came as a bit of a surprise to most, she has expressed a desire to have more children in the past.
“I definitely want more kids,” Alicia told Wendy Williams in last year. “I do actually want more children and sometimes I think it does feel like, ‘Oh man, what if I could just spend every waking minute with Egypt. [I’ve] learned to really cherish those small moments and not rush so much everywhere.”

When Ciara first announced that she is pregnant with her first child, she explained why she didn’t wish to reveal the sex of her baby.
“I do know the sex of my baby,” she explained. “But again I want to keep that special.”
But honestly, it has to be pretty difficult to hold such a huge and exciting secret like that in for too long—especially when you’re constantly doing interviews and whatnot. Though Ci Ci didn’t slip up and spill the beans about the sex of her baby, it looks like her fiancé, Future, may have.
While chatting with Tim Westwood TV, he began to share that his unborn child is already listening to music and well, he dropped the news from there.
“The baby listening to music already now,” he began. “She sent me a video while I was over here with the headphones on her stomach. She said ‘The baby just listened to ‘Turn On The Lights,’ the version with me and you.’ I said ‘He gotta play.You gotta play that ‘Anytime’ for him, the new one you did. Let him hear that. See how he kick.’ She played it for him and he started kicking like crazy.”
Shortly after his initial statement, he realized that he’d spilled the beans.
“See you got the sex outta me and you don’t even know it.”
And then of course, he tried to clean it up.
“That’s why I can’t tell you what sex I’m having. If it’s a girl or a boy. I might say it’s a boy, but it might be a girl. I really love girls. I always said I wanted two girls and I already have one, so.”
Ha! He definitely wouldn’t be the first to accidentally reveal the sex of a baby against a celebrity mom’s wishes. Last March Tiny accidentally revealed that her BFF Tamar Braxton was having a boy as well.

2014 is off to a pretty exciting start for “The Voice” coach Christina Aguilera. Just last week the singer-turned-reality-star revealed that she’s engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Matt Rutler. The love birds met in 2010 on the set of “Burlesque” where Matt worked as a production assistant. She announced the engagement last week on Valentine’s Day via Instagram by sharing a photo of herself wearing a rather large diamond ring with a caption that read:
“He asked and I said ……”
Apparently an upcoming wedding isn’t the only big news that Christina has been sitting on. According to TMZ, the “Beautiful” singer is also expecting her second child. She also shares a son with ex-husband, Jordan Bratman. It’s currently unclear how far along she is in her pregnancy.
News about the little bundle of joy was first leaked by Matt’s mother, Kathleen Rutler, who accidentally (or maybe not so accidentally) spilled the beans during an interview with In Touch magazine. When asked about rumors that the 33-year-old singer decided to take a season off from “The Voice” because she was planning a move to the East Coast, Kathleen shared the news.
“I don’t know what their plans are,” she said. “But when you have a baby, you’re not planning on moving anywhere anytime soon!”
‘I Thought My Life Was Over:’ Evelyn Lozada Addresses Life After Ochocinco And How Fiancé, Carl Crawford, Makes Her Better
Evelyn Lozada is extremely happy these days. And to be honest, we can totally see why. She’s engaged to be married to a wealthy Major League Baseball star whom she seems totally in love with, she’s pregnant with the second child she’s always wanted and she’s surrounded by people who love and care for her. Overall, the former “Basketball Wives” star seems to be in a great place—a place that is an extreme contrast from where she was just two short years ago. 41 days after marrying former NFLer Chad Ochocinco in a fairytale wedding, the couple divorced following a highly publicized domestic violence incident.
“I had the worst 2012,” she confessed during a recent interview with Life & Style. “I thought my life was over.”
While going through such a traumatic incident is probably never easy, she added that doing so as the world watches made it that much more difficult.
“It happened so publicly, and then the passing of my brother-in-law.”
Though she was clearly broken by the way her marriage ended, Ev expressed that she believes that something positive was birthed in the midst of all of that negativity.
“That entire incident [with Chad] led me to where I’m at now,” she said. “I would say my broken bridge led me to happiness. If I had to do it again, I would because I truly feel complete right now in my life and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
When asked if she feels her fiancé, Carl Crawford, saved her, she expressed that he appeared in her life at the “perfect time.”
“He came into my life at a perfect time. Everything that happened makes me appreciate him 1,000 times more and he also makes me a better person. I appreciate everything and I thank God every day for my life…I’m really lucky and really, really blessed.”
As for the baby boy that she’s scheduled to give birth to in two months, Ev says she’s very much looking forward to the joys and challenges that raising a son will bring.
“He’s going to give me a run for my money! I’m like, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to want to play and get dirty. “I’m just looking forward to all these amazing things that come with having a boy and a baby.”
And most of all, she says she looks forward to teaching him the importance of respecting women.
“I just want him to love and respect all women.”
It’s tough not to be happy for someone who is so blatantly, well, happy!
‘I Would Die For Him:’ Amina Buddafly Dishes On Her Pregnancy And Why She’s Sticking With Peter Gunz
Things got very interesting during the “Love & Hip Hop” reunion show. Though his wife of at least a year, Amina Buddafly, revealed that she was pregnant with his child, Peter Gunz confessed in front of the live audience and cast members that he never would’ve married Amina had he known his ex, Tara, still loved him. The special ended with most viewers assuming that things were over between the reality TV newlyweds, but alas, the two are back together and preparing for the birth of their child.
“That broke me,” Amina confessed during an interview with The Breakfast Club.”After the reunion we were on and off for a while […] I didn’t want nothing to do with nothing, but you know how this love this is. I love him to death. I would die for him.”
As for whether or not Peter feels the same way, the reality star says she definitely believes that he does, even though he tries to censor his love to appease Tara.
“I know for a fact that he definitely loves me with his heart,” explained Amina. “Everyone notices that he’s not really open like, ‘Oh, I really love Amina.’ He never does that—ever. To me, he does it. He does [feel bad]. He’s very open with [his love for me], but anywhere Tara will see it he won’t. It’s deep what he’s done to her.”
Peter didn’t really seem all that excited to learn that he was going to be a father at the reunion show, but now that she’s three months into her pregnancy, the “Don’t Wanna Be Right” singer says that Peter is very happy about the upcoming birth of his eighth child.
“I’m three months,” said Amina. “The thing is I told him [about the pregnancy] in front of everyone and that’s what made him so mad. He [felt] like he [couldn’t] trust me in that moment.”
“Now he is excited, but he can’t openly say it like that because he feels guilty about Tara.”
Amina admits that she realizes this relationship with Peter is extremely abnormal and that there’s a huge chance that she may very well be placed in Tara’s position someday, but she adds that she wishes people would just let her live and experience whatever heartbreak is coming her way.
“[He’s] probably not [going to be monogamous],” confessed Amina. “I just want everyone to let me be stupid and find out on my own. Then y’all can tell me, ‘Told you so.’ “

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.
Kerry Washington is soooooooo pregnant. At least we think she is. The fashion forward actress recently made an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and it’s pretty difficult to deny that expectant mother’s glow she’s rocking.
During the six-minute interview, the 36-year-old Bronx native wore a loose fitting, embroidered black and white get-up, which we suspect is hiding her growing baby bump. Though the Scandal actress remains mum regarding the swirling pregnancy rumors, she did dish on her upcoming Saturday Night Live appearance with Eminem.
“It’s a total dream come true, especially coming from New York. It’s a New York institution. I’m really excited,” she said.
Kerry also praised Scandal producer Shonda Rhimes for being “the best boss ever.”
“She rearranged our shooting schedule so that I could be here. She rearranged the shooting schedule so that I could spend a week in New York doing SNL. She’s the best boss ever!”
Of course the newlywed couldn’t praise her boss without gushing about the rest of their amazing team.
“We’re obsessed with our own show. We’re constantly giving each other standing ovations and tweeting each other. It makes it so much fun,” she said.
“It used to be that the cast had their own Twitter accounts, but now the grips and the electrics have Twitter accounts. And the DPs, and the producers, and the props department—like everybody has a Twitter account.”
The appearance comes only days after an alleged friend of Kerry leaked to the media that the Emmy Award-nominated actress is expecting her first child.
