20 Celeb Moms & How Much Weight They Gained During Pregnancy (Photos)

Bethenny Frankel gained 35 pounds while pregnant.

Have you ever looked at pictures of pregnant celebrities and wondered how much weight they actually gained while expecting their babies? While some famous mamas are very open about how many pounds they put on during their pregnancies, others insist that they barely gained any weight at all, or they claim that it somehow magically fell off before they even left the hospital.

Whether you are a celeb or not, pregnancy weight gain is pretty much inevitable. In fact, it’s essential to the health and well being of your baby. No one likes putting on weight, however, and seeing your shape change so drastically while pregnant can be very emotional for some women.

I am not shy about the fact that I gained 50 pounds while pregnant with my son. Right after I found out I was expecting, I remember telling people that I didn’t plan on gaining more than 20 pounds. I got a huge wake up call when I hit that number by about month four! After that, I pretty much gave up on trying to limit my weight gain, and told myself that this was the only time in my life where I wouldn’t have to worry about the scale.

Celeb mom Bethenny Frankel definitely bounced back from her pregnancy fairly quickly. She gained 35 pounds while expecting daughter, Bryn, which is a very healthy number according to most physicians. Not gaining too much weight certainly helped Bethenny get back to her Skinny Girl status post-baby!
