Pregnant Celebs Reveal Their Cravings, Baby Brain & Need for Naps

Attention, moms-to-be: The Ultimate Maternity Event is here, with the hottest must-haves — chic NOM dresses, ultra-flattering James Jeans, and luxe Basq belly creams — worth treating yourself to. And, in honor of our event, we’ve rounded up some hilarious — and helpful — celebrity pregnancy moments you’ll appreciate, from Kerry Washington’s pizza cravings to Olivia Wilde’s baby brain confession. Plus, score seriously useful tips to help manage your style expectations (thanks, Drew Barrymore!) and squeeze in naps while you can still get them (thanks, Rosie Pope!).

Kerry Washington (above at the Academy Awards): “Yes! @TheEllenShow there IS gluten-free pizza!!!! #OSCARS #greenroom.” Kerry also loves nutritionist Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie (get the recipe).

Drew Barrymore: “Oh my God, I’m eating everything! I can’t get enough of Chinese food. It’s all I want to eat!”

Olivia Wilde: “Babies eat mostly salsa right?” 

Emily Blunt on her gluten-free cookie craving: “I know everyone rolls their eyes, but I met a hippie doctor who suggested it, and it’s really helped me in the pregnancy.”

Jaime King: “I really want olives a lot. And barbecue sauce!”

Kristen Bell: “The funny thing is, [pregnancy brain] is genetically in your body so you don’t have like a killer wit and abuse the kid,” she said. “You kind of soak up all these wonderful hormones and you’re just really nice and dumb the whole time.”

Olivia Wilde: “Baby brain is real. I should not be permitted to operate heavy equipment including iPhones.”

Rachel ZoeMy [maternity] uniform was leggings, jeans that had a little band at the top, long tunics and fitted jackets. I felt I needed to be comfortable and that things needed to be structured, so I didn’t get completely swallowed by my clothes.”

Drew Barrymore:  “It’s about feeling good in clothes and knowing you can get dressed up in the evening… but there’s just no such thing as perfection. So if you’re trying to get there, you’re just torturing yourself.”

Rosie Pope: “Enjoy the pregnancy as much as possible — capitalize on those naps and learn a much as you can so you can relax in confidence once your little wonder arrives.”

    A pair of hanging earrings is a sight to behold as the swinging baubles frame your lovely face to a much-awaited gala. However, a pair of sparkly studs made from diamonds in a silver casing presents a demure appearance that’s fitting for a casual evening. Some women like to add a choker to enhance their swan-like necks or lay a long necklace of precious stones to emphasize their bosoms. Whatever accessories you choose to wear, each piece should emphasize your best asset, such as the shape of your face or the beautiful set of your shoulders. Accessories like a hair clip or a designer belt around the waist also contribute to your overall appearance.

    Apr15Joshua After being directed from to your deadspin article, I came to your website yesterday to learn about you. I have now listened to all three segments of your mormonstories podcast, which I loved.I googled Hinckley racism talk to figure out when Pres. Hinckley gave his memorable talk about racism in a priesthood session of general conference. I have now realized that his talk was delivered just a couple days after you expressed your hope for an apology over the pulpit. I know he didnb4t say exactly what you were looking for, but I would be curious to hear your thoughts on that talk (and perhaps its timing) and if you remain as firm in your testimony as conveyed in the podcast (merely because I am a believer and am glad to have you in the church).
