Celebrity stylist and fashion addict Rachel Zoe has always looked painfully thin, but now she’s pregnant with her first child so it might be expected that she pack on a few pounds. Not the 60 or so that some women do, but at least enough to put her in the normal BMI range.
While she did put on some weight, she is now eight months pregnant and looks like she just had a really big lunch (or had lunch for the first time.)
Natalie Portman has shown us all what eight months pregnant looks like, and she (reportedly) isn’t even eight months along! But seriously, Natalie was skinny before she got pregnant, and she’s still skinny, but she also looks like she’s growing a human being inside of her body, not like she bloated from an extra salty bowl of soup.
Rachel told US Weekly a few weeks ago that her pregnancy cravings are strawberries and grapefruit. Those are great things to eat, but babies also need protein, and just plain calories to grow.
In Touch was also concerned about Rachel tiny bump, so they asked some of her friends about it. One of her friends explained that Rachel was still so small because she “wasn’t used to eating three meals a day.” What kind eating-disordered explanation is that? The friend goes on to note that Rachel’s husband Rodger Berman is making sure she stays healthy.
Another friend said that she was using creative draping and fashion magic to mask her growing belly. Hopefully that’s more the case.
“She’s a fashionista. I think she’s trying to dress a certain way to cover it. The baby’s very healthy, and she’s taking off work soon.”
That baby bump is bananas! Speaking of bananas, they’re a great source of folic acid.
