Congratulations to the lovely Jessica Simpson and her tall and sexy fiancé Eric Johnson on the recent announcement of their pregnancy! Rumors had been circulating for quite some time regarding whether or not Jessica was pregnant, when the singer and business-woman tweeted on October 31st, “It’s true – I’m going to be a mummy!” Jessica has often spoken of her desire to be a mother, and we could not be happier that her dream is coming true.
As an incredibly successful fashion designer, Jessica’s pregnancy means that she gets to show off her great fashion sense in a whole new arena—maternity clothing! For a recent evening out, she wore a loose-fitting animal print top with sexy jeans shorts and great black heels. The shorts work great, since she paired them with a looser top to balance the proportion. Animal print is very popular this year, and Olian’s ¾ Length Sleeve Animal Print Maternity Dress is a great way to wear it. For a recent shopping day in New York City, Jessica continued the animal print trend with a great structured black and leopard print leather jacket, pairing it with a fitted black tank, black leggings, and knee-high boots. This look is the perfect combination between comfort and style, as the stretchy top and leggings are ultra-comfy and the jacket creates a beautiful and flattering silhouette. Try Bella Band Essential’s Everyday Cami and Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Maternity Leggings for an equally comfy look. A great cropped motorcycle jacket adds edge and a flattering shape.
For a more formal event, the launch of her tween clothing line, Jessica wanted to maintain a high level of comfort while look chic and fashionable. She hit her mark, sporting a long-sleeve black tunic, black tights, and dressing it up with fabulous jewelry. Adding statement earrings, a great ring, or a bold necklace to any outfit will instantly dress it up and take it to the next level, while still allowing one to maintain one’s comfort.
We are so happy for the beautiful couple, and are eagerly awaiting the birth of their child!
Lizzie McGuire is all grown up! The beautiful Hilary Duff and her cute hockey player husband Mike Comrie are expecting their first child together this February. Hillary announced her pregnancy on an October 14th appearance on The Ellen Show, stating, “”I haven’t told anyone yet. I wanted to tell you first. I just found out.” As to the baby’s gender? “It’s a boy! I had a feeling it was a boy the whole time,” she gushed to Ellen. We are so excited for the sweet couple, who also just celebrated their first year of marriage.
Throughout her pregnancy, Hilary has been staying healthy and in shape with lots of work out sessions, and looking cute in the process. On November 2nd, she was spotted leaving the gym in cute ankle length leggings, and a V-neck tee. The tee was cut extra-long to provide plenty of coverage for her growing baby bump. For a similar look, pair Maternal America’s Maternity Leggings with Shade Maternity’s Baby Tee. Comfy and stretchy, one will feel and look great throughout one’s workout. The following day, Hilary sported a similarly comfortable look while rushing through JFK Airport. She highlights her baby bump in a cute long-sleeve white tee, black stovepipes, ankle booties, and a cozy black scarf. By sticking to classic colors and shapes, she looks both chic and comfortable. We love how she layered a striped tank underneath the white tee to provide extra length and coverage!
Hilary transitions easily from day to night, as she showed us this Monday at the Hollywood launch of The Beauty Book for Brain Cancer. She rocked a sequined, citrus-hued mini dress that showed off her curves beautifully. Pairing it with gold jewelry and nude pumps created a perfectly modern look, and her long, soft waves of hair contrasted the tightness of the dress perfectly. Congratulations to the happy couple!
Congratulations to the stunning Bryce Dallas Howard and her handsome husband Seth Gabel on their second pregnancy! In just a few short weeks, their four year old son Theo will be joined by a new baby brother or sister. We love Bryce, not only for her phenomenal acting skills but also for her candidness in discussing her struggles with post-partum depression. We could not be happier for the lovely family!
Bryce’s stunning red hair and porcelain skin are gorgeous, and we love how she has chosen to play up her beautiful features with a plethora of colors. Not shying away from any color, she chooses bold hues that truly make a statement. From deep blues to bright pinks to rich greens, the colors she chooses exude happiness and confidence. No matter what one’s coloring, adding bold and rich hues to one’s wardrobe is an excellent way to pep up one’s maternity wardrobe. This past June, Bryce rocked a gorgeous pink gown at the MTV Movie Awards. The flowing fabric in shades of pink was stunning, and the rope belt created a flattering empire waist. We also love the confidence Bryce exuded in her marigold gown that she recently wore on the red carpet. Paired with her deep red hair, the golden hue has an autumn feel. The empire-waist emphasis fits her baby bump beautifully, while her clean and simple styling really lets the dress shine.
No matter what one’s coloring, adding bold hues to one’s maternity wardrobe is stylish and truly exudes confidence. It can be added in subtle ways, such as a sapphire colored t-shirt or a deep red scarf. If one wants to be a bit bolder, try a pair of purple skinny jeans paired with a white tank or an emerald green cocktail dress. Congratulations to the Howard-Gabel family!
Jennifer Aniston, pregnant? Tongues are wagging after Jennifer’s appearance Monday evening at Elle’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute. Wearing a gorgeous silver mini-dress, the slightest hint of a bump showed beneath the sequins. Although nothing has been confirmed by her or her reps, we are hoping that the bump is indeed a little bundle of joy! Jennifer recently moved in with her boyfriend, the dark and handsome Justin Theroux, and with the love one sees between them we would not be surprised if they decided they were ready to add a baby to the family.
Jennifer’s style is always impeccable, and we are sure her maternity style would be just as effortlessly fashionable. She manages to have a beach-goddess, hip city girl look all combined in one. By combining her softly curled hair with a black studded jacket, she expertly mixes softness and hardness. If Jennifer is pregnant, (fingers crossed!) we know we would love her maternity style. For running errands around New York City, we could see her rocking a great pair of boot cut jeans, a classic white tee, and a short, fitted blazer. 1 in the Oven’s InvisiBelly Maternity Jeans paired with Shade’s Maternity Baby Tee would work perfectly for her, and are great versatile options. Pairing it with a black blazer and black espadrilles or boots would complete this look, and stay true to her style.
Jennifer loves to show off her gorgeous legs, and this is easily a look she can wear during pregnancy. For a date night with Justin, or a fun night out with her BFF’s, we think a short dressed paired with some funky black heels is a must. Olian’s ¾ Sleeve Animal Print Dress is sexy and classic, with the funky leopard print making a statement and the black trim bringing the whole look together. Jennifer can style it with her trade-mark soft waves, a chunky gold watch, and her favorite pair of black heels. We hope that the little bump we saw is indeed an indication that Jennifer is pregnant!
With just one more week to go before her due date, we know Tori Spelling and hubby Dean McDermott must be so excited for the arrival of the newest addition to their family! Throughout her pregnancy, Tori has looked chic and stylish while still being comfortable and relaxed. One of her pregnancy staples has been the maxi dress, in which Tori has looked truly stunning! Maxi dresses are a great idea for pregnancy, as they combine style and comfort in one. Just this week, Tori was spotted shopping for Halloween decoration in a beautiful, floral printed maxi dress. Its modified sweetheart neckline and empire waist flattered her baby bump. She wore hers with a sleeveless lace blouse, but with fall in full swing one can pair it with a great cozy cardigan. For a similar look in a beautiful autumn orange, try Maternal America’s Strapless Dress/Skirt. This maxi, which can also be worn as a skirt, looks great with a brown or white cardigan and brown strappy sandals.
We also love Tori’s use of color throughout her pregnancy. She chooses vibrant hues that exude happiness. At the end of August Tori was spotted with her adorable children wearing a loose fitting, ¾ length sleeve, deep blue dress. The vibrant blue fabric compliments her skin tone beautifully while making a statement. With autumn here, a ¾ length sleeve transitions perfectly from warmer to cooler weather. If you like Tori’s look, Maternal America’s Front Tie Keyhole Dress is similar with a rich, blue hue and those ever versatile ¾ length sleeves. For fall, pair it with tights and flat boots or ballet flats.
We are so excited for the impending arrival of Tori and Dean’s third child! Congratulations to the happy couple and we look forward to seeing the newest addition to their family.
Little Black Dress? Try Little Black Maternity Bikinis! We are loving the black maternity bikinis that are hugely popular this summer season with expectant mothers. Pregnancy is a time to celebrate one’s curves, and there is no better or sexier way to do so than in an LBB. Always busy mama Tori Spelling, who is expecting her third child with handsome hubby Dean McDermott this October, was spotted taking a stroll on the beach in May in a stylish black bikini. She was glowing! Black is always classic, adds a hint of sexiness, and never goes out of style. We love its halter style as it provides extra support for one’s changing bust size during pregnancy. For a similar look, try Prego’s gorgeous Bow Tie Bikini. With its extra stretchy material that is made to hug one’s curves, it can be worn all throughout pregnancy and beyond!
Another celebrity mama, the uber-talented Toni Collette, was spotted on the beach back in February, two months before giving birth to her beautiful baby boy Arlo, in a super-cute LBB with dainty white polka dots. The polka dots give this swimsuit an extra feminine touch and the adjustable straps allow Toni to customize its fit. We love the added ruffle detail as well. Prego’s Black Dot Bikini provides a similar look. The rectangular ring design at the bust is incredibly stylish, and the bust support offered is excellent. For all those mamas who want to bare their bod, a classic yet comfortable way to do so is with a stylish LBB!
When Beyoncé and Jay-Z announced their pregnancy last month, we were so excited for the incredible couple! We were also incredibly excited for the gorgeous maternity fashion we knew Beyoncé would wear, and she has not disappointed. From red-carpet dresses to running errands around town, her maternity fashion is stylish, eye-catching, and oh-so gorgeous.
Just a few weeks ago, at the launch for her new fragrance, Beyoncé sparkled and shined in a short, blue sparkling tunic and sequined blazer. Pairing it with black heels, she accented her gorgeous legs. We love that she chose a short dress to show off her legs but stayed more covered on top. Balancing an outfit this way is sexy and classy. Maternal America’s Navy Shift Dress has the same loose feel. Pair it with a fitted blazer and sparkling gold jewelry for the perfect date-night outfit.
Looking radiant in a more casual look, Beyonce rocked a printed white tee and black skinny jeans at the U.S. Open Men’s Final Match. We love the black, white, and gold palette she chose, and the comfort which the soft tee and stretchy jeans provide. For an equally stylish yet comfy look, pair Maternal America’s Belly Support Leggings in black with Olian’s Off The Shoulder Tee. The loose fitting tee ruches underneath the belly for comfort and has a glam feel with its off-the-shoulder cut. Pair it with cute sneakers or ballet flats and a funky statement piece of jewelry for a true Beyoncé look.
Beyonce’s maternity wardrobe stays true to her style and personality, while ensuring her comfort throughout her pregnancy. She recently spoke to E! News of the joys of pregnancy, stating “[Pregnancy] is the most incredible gift anyone can have. I’m very excited. I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been.” Congrats, Beyoncé and Jay-Z!
Bikinis are all the rage on pregnant celebrities this season! From beach days to yacht cruises, we are seeing maternity bikinis everywhere. Maternity bikinis are a fabulous choice, as they allow plenty of room for one’s baby bump to grow and never feel restricting. Different from a regular bikini, they are designed with extra bust support and adjustable straps so that they can be fitted to one’s body throughout one’s pregnancy.
Back in February, when the gorgeous Selma Blair was just starting to show, she rocked her beginning baby bump in a fun, brightly printed floral bikini. She paired it with a chic cowboy hat for added sun protection and to add an additional splash of style. There is no better way to honor one’s pregnancy than in a fresh and happy print! For a similar option, Prego’s Kona Skirted Bikini has gorgeous chocolate brown flowers against a bright aqua background.
White bikinis are another popular choice as they look gorgeous against tanned skin, and surfer-girl Kate Hudson was spotted wearing a super cute one in March, four months before the birth of her second son. We love how she paired it with a shell necklace and printed sarong wrap, staying true to her laid back style.
Many women shy away from bikinis during pregnancy since their bodies are changing. However, if a bikini is something you normally like to wear, go for it! Make sure the maternity bikini you buy has plenty of bust support on the top and that the bottoms fit comfortably beneath your baby bump. As long as you are comfy, you will look and feel amazing!
Gorgeous Jennifer Garner and handsome husband Ben Affleck just announced that they are expecting their third child! Congratulations to the growing family…we could not be happier for them! The newest addition will be joining big sisters Violet Anne, 5 ½, and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 2 ½. Will it remain an all-girl brood or will a little brother be added to the mix?
Over the years, Jennifer and Ben have impressed us with their hands-on parenting style. We see them out and about the town, taking the girls on play dates, music lessons, and daily grocery trips. We also love all the cute mommy-daughter time that Jennifer puts in with her girls! Just this week after announcing her pregnancy, Jennifer and Violet were out running errands together. Jennifer wore stylish jeans, a loose fitting top, and a tailored blazer. Combining a blazer with a looser top is a great idea, as a good fitting jacket adds structure and a slimming look to any outfit. Paired with dark wash jeans, it is a look that can easily be dressed up or down. For one similar to Jennifer’s, pair a black blazer with Maternal America’s Laced Sleeve Kimono Top and Megan Blue Jeans.
The beautiful Jennifer glams it up and looks stunning for red carpet events, but we also love her casual and relaxed style in her day to day life. During this pregnancy, we would love to see her in some cute and casual sundresses. Maternal America’s Navy Shift Dress looks great on any skin tone, as does their beautifully printed Dakota Kimono Tunic. Easy to wear with flats or sandals, these dresses are casual yet chic, and sure to keep any expectant mother comfortable throughout the day.
Congratulations to Jennifer, Ben, and the two proud big sisters…we look forward to seeing the newest addition!
Congratulations to the incredibly talented Beyoncé Knowles and her equally talented husband Jay-Z on the announcement of their pregnancy! At the Video Music Awards last night, Beyoncé, 29, showed off her burgeoning baby bump while walking the red carpet in a stunning red, Lanvin gown. She looked gorgeous in the flowing dress, pairing it with statement earrings and dramatic bracelets. We love the beautiful draping of the dress…so striking! Smiling and holding her belly as she walked the carpet, her happiness was contagious. Later in the evening, Beyoncé took the stage to perform and unbuttoned her jacket at the end, revealing her baby bump to an excited and cheering audience and her beaming husband!
This is the first child for Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and we could not be happier for the lovely couple. Speaking to People, Beyoncé’s former band mate Kelly Rowland said, “I think she’ll be an incredible mother, because she’s always been motherly. I think that she takes after so many traits from her mother. And I just think it’s going to be so natural for her. It’s natural for her now!”
We are so excited to see what Beyonce’s maternity wardrobe will be! With her own clothing line and impeccable fashion sense, we know she will be rocking gorgeous outfits on the red carpet as well as just out and about. For a date night with her husband, we think Maternal America’s Embellished Bell Sleeve Tunic paired with studded heels would look fabulous. Congratulations to the happy couple!
