Kate Hudson had a great attitude about gaining weight during pregnancy.

Putting on pesky pregnancy pounds can be tough to take, not to mention trying to shed them after the baby arrives! Whether you gained 10 pounds or 80 pounds while pregnant, baby weight still takes it’s toll on a woman’s self esteem.

Baby bumps are beautiful, but when you add in swollen ankles, a fuller face, and just an overall sense of feeling huge, most women will agree that it can be hard to feel pretty while pregnant.

Celebrities are no strangers to the emotional roller coaster of watching the number on the scale continue to creep upward as the months go on. Considering it is part of their job to appear svelte and camera ready at all times, gaining weight while pregnant can really bruise celebrity moms’ egos.

The numbers vary as to how much celeb moms actually gained while pregnant, and some of them weren’t afraid to speak out on the subject.

Kate Hudson had one of the best attitudes about pregnancy weight gain I’ve ever heard while she was waiting for son Ryder’s arrival. She said, “I’ve been so happy and big and fat and jolly!”

If only we could all feel that way during our last trimester!
