The 34-year-old actress is expecting her first child with her former co-star of The Client List, Colin Egglesfield. She’s keeping a cool mindset and a positive outlook on motherhood, saying she’s going to take on a “zen” approach to parenting her child.
The expecting mom told Us Weekly, “I think most people, when they’re getting ready to be a mom, they go, ‘Oh my gosh, I have to have all of the answers right now,’ but every kid is different, every parent is different and every child and parent relationship is different, so you just sort of have to wait until you’re in it and do the best that you can to try to be Zen in the middle of it all.”
Jennifer Love Hewitt has also been keeping herself healthy and fit during her pregnancy by working with a trainer with regime that includes Pilates and yoga. She says that exercise is the secret to her stress-free pregnancy and that the cardio and weight training are “so my arms are strong to hold the baby”.
Congratulations to Halle Berry and beau Oliver Martinez! The couple were married over the weekend. They held a quaint ceremony in a village church in France’s Burgundy region.
Already a mother to a five-year old daughter, the pregnant actress, Halle Berry, who was recently interviewed back in April by CNN, describes her pregnancy as the “biggest surprise of my life”. She noted, ““I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me”. However, Halle Berry also noted that she “feels fantastic!”
In the interview, she went on to explain how her pregnancy made her think more about the pre-natal healthy of her baby. “Especially now, being a pregnant woman and already having a child … it’s so important what happens to the baby while they’re in utero. And the first 1,000 days is fundamental,” said Berry. She revealed her pregnancy has inspired her to act on behalf of hungry children and pregnant women who struggle with maintaining proper nutrition during pregnancy, teaming up with the Word Food Programme in the fight against hunger.
We’d like to commend Halle Berry for being an inspiration for mothers who believe that a healthy life starts in the womb.
Congratulations to Jaime Ray Newman who’s expecting a baby girl sometime this August. The actress and her husband recently celebrated the oncoming arrival of their daughter with a rooftop baby shower bash over the weekend. At the event, the actress and star of ABC’s Red Widow, opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop in an interview about her pregnancy and thoughts on becoming a mom.
When asked for her thoughts on her pregnancy, Newman commented, “Thankfully, I’ve been feeling really good. Now I’m starting to slow down and my feet are getting a little tired, but up until now I’ve had a lot of energy and I’ve felt great! I love being pregnant.
Newman also appears to be ecstatic for her approaching motherhood. On what she looks forward to the most as a mom, the actress said, “All of the endless nights of sleep I am going to get. [laughs] I am just excited to have something bigger than me and Guy out there. You get so self-involved and wrapped up in yourself, especially in our business, so it will be really nice to have something more significant than us.”

Congratulations to Michelle Monaghan!
Already a mother to a 4-year-old girl named Willow Katherine and slated to star in three upcoming films in 2013, actress Michelle Monaghan has just announced over the weekend that she’s expecting a second child due sometime later this fall.
In an earlier interview with Women’s Health magazine back in 2010, Monaghan talked about the experiences of being a mother for the first time. She shared her thoughts on being a working mom, “On my kitchen counter sits a KitchenAid mixer, a potty seat, and a small pile of scripts…That pretty much sums it up. I’m a homemaker, a potty trainer, and a part-time pretender.”
She also talked about her lifestyle changes due to the arrival of her first daughter, “For the first time, I thought about my well-being. Now I’m trying to instill healthy eating habits in my daughter, so by default my husband and I are eating healthier.”
So for our mamas-to-be out there, or already mamas, do you feel as if your pregnancy has provided some extra motivation to make some lifestyle changes you wouldn’t have thought about before? Tell us on Facebook!
Between her baby shower and the revealing of her baby’s gender (a baby girl!), Kim Kardashian has been generating a lot of buzz among news outlets this past week. To add to all the hype surrounding Kim’s pregnancy, contemporary sculptor, Daniel Edwards recently unveiled a nude sculpture of a pregnant Kim, entitled “L.A. Fertility.”
Edwards, whose portfolio consists of controversial works such as sculpted works depicting Suri Cruise’s first bowel movement, a nude Britney Spears giving birth and statue of Angelina Jolie breast-feeding, explains his latest artistic endeavor as a response to all the criticism Kim has faced concerning her pregnancy weight gain. He was “inspired by the beauty of Kim Kardashian and felt quite off-put by the media’s criticism of her weight gain during pregnancy”.
“People tend to look at the parts, like the creases in her armpits, or how she wore a dress that makes her look like a killer whale,” Edwards further explained to Los Angeles Magazine. “I’m stripping it of the details people get stuck on, so they can see the beauty.“
Although Kim has yet to comment about the statue, it has already stirred up controversy among public opinion. Share your thoughts on our Facebook!
It can hard to feel sophisticated and fashionable during pregnancy. For going out, we recommend wearing black for the appearance of a slimmer silhouette with a pop of color from a fashionable blazer to dress up the outfit.
Celebrity mamas-to-be Jessica Simpson and Rachel Leigh Cook like to keep it classy with basic black outfits and a contrasting blazer.
Who do you think pulled off the outfit better? Tell us on Facebook!
