Bump Watch! Four Famous Moms-to-Be
From Mariah to Pink, they’re doing pregnancy their way!
Ali Larter’s not giving up stilettos
Larter, 34, who was so private about her pregnancy that she fled to Europe so the media wouldn’t get hold of the story, is now proudly out and about, showing her eight-month baby bump—and wearing a pair of fierce stilettos. “I love my high heels,” she said, according to the website www.hollybaby.com. “I’ll kick ass, pregnant, any day of the week.” Well, what else would you expect from the Resident Evil toughie? (But pediatricians generally advise against wearing heels during pregnancy because of the increased likelihood of falling.) Ali and her husband, Hayes McArthur, are expecting a boy, and he’s already got a nickname: Baby Mac. They’ll decide on the actual name later. (hollybaby)
Laila Ali’s chowing down
Laila, the former boxer and the daughter of legendary fighter Muhammad Ali is blogging about her second pregnancy—and how hard it is to keep from gaining weight. “Giving birth to a child is a beautiful gift and a privilege,” she writes in her blog, according to the website www.blackcelebkids.com. “But what a woman has to go through to make it happen is something else!” Laila, 32, who’s in her fourth month, says that her first pregnancy “went very well…No nausea, morning sickness, etc.” This time around, though, she’s got a fiercer craving for sweets. One of her favorites: homemade peach cobbler a la mode. “It’s warm, sweet and it goes well with vanilla ice cream,” she writes. “And that’s good enough for me!”Laila’s married to former NFL player Curtis Conway. They have a son, Curtis Jr. (blackcelebkids)
