Top Pregnant Celebrity Moms at the Oscars


  • Catherine Zeta-Jones, 2003 1 of 15
    Catherine Zeta-Jones, 2003
    Catherine Zeta-Jones was just entering her ninth month when she glided down the red carpet in a low-cut black gown and coral Fred Leighton earrings. We would never have known her unborn daughter was “kicking like crazy”!
  • Naomi Watts, 2007 2 of 15
    Naomi Watts, 2007
    Naomi Watts hadn't yet announced her pregnancy (five months along) when she walked the red carpet in a yellow, drop-sleeved Escada gown — but the loose fit and empire waist
    had tongues wagging.
  • Eva Marie Saint, 1955 3 of 15
    Eva Marie Saint, 1955
    Oscar winner Eva Marie Saint gave birth to her first child just two days after the ceremony, landing her the distinction of being the most pregnant woman ever to attend the Oscars.
  • Ann Blyth, 1953 4 of 15
    Ann Blyth, 1953
    Actress Blyth caused a minor scandal at the Academy Awards when, visibly pregnant, she performed the Best Song nominee "Secret Love" — with the lyric "And my secret love's no secret anymore." If she weren’t married, the committee wouldn’t have let her sing!
  • Meryl Streep, 1983 5 of 15
    Meryl Streep, 1983
    Unbeknownst to the public, Meryl Streep was six months pregnant when she won the Oscar for Sophie’s Choice. The beading on her gold gown kept all eyes on the star's face, while the clever pleated skirt disguised her bump.
  • Lauren Bacall, 1952 6 of 15
    Lauren Bacall, 1952
    Four-months pregnant, Bacall squeezed into the one original Christian Dior dress she owned to watch husband Humphrey Bogart walk away with his first and only Oscar.
  • Rachel Weisz, 2006 7 of 15
    Rachel Weisz, 2006
    Designer Narcisco Rodriguez made three separate dresses for the 7-months pregnant star to choose from; the Best Supporting Actress winner chose a black, off-the-shoulder number the day of
    the ceremony.
  • Nicole Kidman, 2008 8 of 15
    Nicole Kidman, 2008
    A 5-months pregnant Nicole Kidman kept things simple in black Balenciaga — except for that L'Wren Scott diamond necklace, which weighed in at a whopping 1,399 carats.
  • Annette Bening, 2000 9 of 15
    Annette Bening, 2000
    The stunning — and super pregnant — Best Supporting Actress nominee gave birth to daughter Ella just two weeks after the 2000 Oscars.
  • Cate Blanchett, 2008 10 of 15
    Cate Blanchett, 2008
    Rather than downplaying her 8-month bump, Cate Blanchett decked it out in the night's most intriguing ensemble: lethal stilettos, a blue satin gown, and oversized jewelry.
  • Vanessa Williams, 2000 11 of 15
    Vanessa Williams, 2000
    Best Original Song presenter Vanessa Williams wore a sleek, black Carmen Marc Valvo gown to downplay 37 pounds of pregnancy weight — and show off her fabulous mom-to-be cleavage.
  • Judy Garland, 1954 12 of 15
    Judy Garland, 1954
    No designer was making glamorous maternity gowns in 1955, but Judy Garland looked swanky in satin at the nominations telecast. She had to skip the actual ceremony, as her son was born
    the day before.
  • Jessica Alba, 2008 13 of 15
    Jessica Alba, 2008
    While Alba wasn’t nominated for any awards, her feathered Marchesa gown and Cartier diamonds put her at the top of many of the year's best-dressed lists.
  • Marcia Gay Harden, 2004 14 of 15
    Marcia Gay Harden, 2004
    7-months pregnant with twins, Marcia Gay Harden’s royal blue Badgley Mischka gown was lined at the waist with antique beads to show off her growing belly.
  • Glenn Close, 1988 15 of 15
    Glenn Close, 1988
    Glenn Close’s daughter Annie was born just 15 days after the ceremony, which she nearly missed in the first place due to a traffic jam — Close was one of several stars who got out of their limos
    and walked!
