For a minute there, it felt like everyone was popping up pregnant, am I right? As of right now we have a bunch of celebrity Bump Watches going on, with Zoe Saldana, Blake Lively, and Kelly Rowland all expecting—along with Kate Middleton and a host of others. Now, I’m one of those people who thinks the pregnant body is totally weird—something I’m allowed to say, having experienced it thrice. But, with the right lighting and professional photography (and, let’s be real, some airbrushing over the stretch marks), it can totally be beautiful! Here are some of my favorite Baby Bump photoshoots from over the years.
Early last month it was formally announced that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant with her second child and today we get to see the first signs of her burgeoning baby bump … kinda. Kate attended a charity gala at L’Anima restaurant in London, England last night and was showing the first signs of her tiny bump. Folks are crediting her “head-turning cocktail dress” with nude cut-outs with properly showcasing her baby bump because, well, this is the kind of world we live in :) Click through the gallery to get your first look at Kate‘s royal bump … do you see it in any of the photos?
The Look of Lurve
Last week, Blake Lively debuted her baby bump publicly on the red carpet at The Golden Heart Awards and last night, she took her growing bump for another spin on the red carpet at the Angel Ball event at Cipriani Wall Street. This time, Blake and her bump were joined by hubby/daddy-to-be Ryan Reynolds. Click through the gallery to see this beautiful little family looking like love personified. You can tell that Ryan had a hard time keeping his eyes off his beautiful pregnant wife. They look so great, don’t they?
A few days ago, the newly pregnant Blake Lively debuted her teeny tiny baby bump on the red carpet and today we are hearing from daddy-to-be Ryan Reynolds about potential names for the baby. At this point, we don’t know if Blake and Ryan will be having a girl or a boy but Ryan has got names picked out for both possibilities. Obviously, he will have to get wife Blake on board with his choices but … he’s a charismatic guy, I think he can sway her his way.

Royal Baby #2 will be here circa...
Catherine, Duchess of Crambridge, I feel for ya! Whenever a due date is announced (unless you’ve been concealing your pregnancy for, say, 7 months or so) it always sounds light years away. A full-term pregnancy is not 9 months folks. It’s 10 months. 40 long weeks, which I imagine feel even longer when you’re on bed rest, or suffering from severe morning sickness, like the Duchess. This morning we got the big news from Kensington Palace about the second Royal Baby’s expected time of arrival, so click inside for more!
At the start of this month we learned officially that actress Blake Lively is pregnant with her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds and last weekend, we got to see photos from Blake‘s artisinal (and very early) baby shower. Today we get to see Blake‘s baby bump out in public when it made it’s debut last night on the red carpet at the God’s Love We Deliver gala event, The Golden Heart Awards. As you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, Blake‘s barely burgeoning baby bump was on FULL display for the cameras … which is a rare occurrence for someone as private as Blake Lively. After the event, she was all covered up but for the red carpet arrivals, she was happy to show off what her husband gave her. Now that her bump made its public debut, Blake‘s Bump Watch can officially commence!

'Now that I'm pregnant, I'm kind of itching for sexy compliments'
Zoe Saldana is finally opening up about her pregnancy a bit, and we’ve got some fun new details today. We recently learned that the actress is expecting twins, and she’s been baby bumping all over the place (and looking pretty amazing whilst doing so). Apparently, she’s been having some cravings lately, and not for food. Saldana sat down with Craig Ferguson and hilariously revealed that she kind of likes getting hit on while pregnant. Oh, and she’s having twin boys! Agh! Click inside for more!
Living the dream
We recently learned that two incredibly pretty people got together and made a baby—always exciting. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are soon-to-be parents, and we saw some really sweet photos from Blake‘s website, where she announced the big news. The actress has since updated her site with a little blog post and some photos, so click inside for more!

Back in May, we learned the happy news that actors Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen were expecting the birth of their first child together and since then, we haven’t really heard or seen much from the reclusive couple. Today, tho, we get to see photos of Rachel and her very pronounced baby bump on a shopping excursion to Bed, Bath and Beyond here in SoCal this week. From the looks of Rachel‘s bump, I’m gonna guess that she will be bringing forth the fruit of her loins any day now.

"I'm excited to bring a child into the world"
Kelly Rowland and her fabulously stylish baby bump are featured in the pages of the new issue of Elle magazine. As you can see in the gallery presented here, photographer Lance Gross did his best to showcase Kelly‘s bump as dramatically as possible. She is hella pregs in these photos and she reveals in her Elle interview that she has a few weeks to go before she births (assuming the interview was conducted a few weeks ago, she should be ready to pop at any moment now.
