You may have discovered Rosie Pope on Bravo’s reality show Pregnant in Heels, but the pregnancy guru already had a major mommy following, and deservedly so. From her Rosie Pope Maternity clothing line (on Gilt today) and stores to her MomPrep education sessions and Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy book, Pope manages to guide and inspire countless moms-to-be — all while raising four adorable kids under the age of five. How does she do it all? We asked and she revealed what a day in her life looks like — which typically includes pancakes, school runs, meetings, trains, lots of running, and wine.
5:00 am: Wake up to feed Bridget [nine weeks old] and shower and get ready before my other babes get up. I also make an espresso iced coffee in my favorite glass tumbler and take some long sips!
6:00 am: Between 6:00 and 7:00 my other kids wake. James [five years old] is always first and he likes to dive into talking about his dreams, then comes Vivienne [two years old] who plunges straight for her milk and then Wellington [three years old] sleepily searches for his pancakes! I always make a big breakfast for them and try and sit down in all the chaos so we can really connect before the day gets going.
8:30 am: School drop off – everyone comes along for the ride!
9:00 am: I take the train into New York City now that we are officially in the burbs. Bridget comes with me and as she snoozes I catch up on all the emails that have already flooded in.
10:00 am: My first duty at the office usually involves working on both my maternity and baby collections from design through to fabric, fit, and new innovations that I want to try.
12:00 pm: My husband and I work together and so we try and spend time each day to connect and work on strategy for the projects we have coming up and would like to pursue so we can be as productive as possible during the day.
1:00 pm: I go for a quick run to clear my head and give me the energy I need for the rest of the day. Our offices are near the river so it’s a lovely run.
2:00 pm: Each day is different, but the afternoon is generally filled with filming, creating MomPrep educational content and a lot of running (that’s the theme of my day) from one appointment to the other, desperately trying to fit it all in before my train home that Bridget and I normally run like mad people to catch!
6:00 pm: Walk in the door for dinner, baths, homework, stories, and as many cuddles as I can fit in!
8:00 pm: Everyone is asleep as I have to admit I pour myself a nice glass of white wine. My husband and I then sit down to dinner (he cooks) and we dive back into work as we don’t spend much time together during the day it’s important to connect and work on things at night.
11:00 pm: Sleep!
