Earlier today, Kate Middleton ignited a media frenzy, when the St. James’ Palace finally put to rest months of endless speculation and released an official statement confirming that the lovely Duchess was pregnant with her first royal child. And while the world will no doubt be glued to Kate’s every move from now until the big day, we’re reminded of a few other expectant mothers, that is of the supermodel variety of course, who we’ve been keeping close tabs on throughout the course of their glowing pregnancies.
In fact, the royal lady’s birth announcement follows just on the heels of supermodel Lara Stone, who announced just a few weeks prior that she was also expecting her first child with husband David Walliams. And in true supermodel fashion, the Dutch beauty was most recently spotted on the red carpet at the 22nd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards, flaunting rather than hiding her adorable little baby bump in a slinky red Calvin Klein number. Not to be outdone, Victoria’s Secret mommy-to-be, Marisa Miller, shows off her belly in beautiful black and white photos for Allure magazine.
As Marisa anticipates her first child, she explains, “I always felt, even before I got pregnant, that it’s better to accentuate your curves.” While staying fit during her second trimester with Pilates “five times a week,” Marisa also shared tips from fellow model mom Molly Sims by posting her home remedy for stretch marks on her blog: shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and Vitamin E. “I made it myself, boiling the ingredients, and I poured it into mason jars. I’ve loved the community of women who share their tips,” says Marisa.
Although the big Kate Middleton pregnancy announcement has us excited as can be, we are also so happy for Lara and Marisa with baby #1 on the way. And let’s not forget Brazilian bombshell, Gisele Bündchen, who is pregnant with her second child with husband Tom Brady. One thing is for sure, there’s going to be some beautiful babies in no time!
