Pregnancy Cravings: Which Celebrity Moms Shared Your Crazy Cravings

Did you watch actress Mila Kunis’ interview with Ellen DeGeneres last week? The petit, very pregnant actress admitted to Ellen that vinegar-based foods had taken over her pregnancy cravings: specifically, sauerkraut and pickles. Ellen attributed Mila’s specific pregnancy cravings to her Ukrainian heritage, and at one point during her show’s interview, Ellen had sauerkraut and pickles delivered to the star. What crazy foods have other pregnant stars sought out in the past? We’ll reveal what kinds of foods celebrity moms craved and see whose cravings matched your own!

If you had pregnancy cravings for sweets, ice cream, and other candies…

You’re just like Pink, who craved Sour Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, and Key Lime pie when pregnant with her daughter Willow in 2011. Pink’s not alone in the sweets department: Hilary Duff wanted gooey marshmallow snacks while pregnant with her son Luca, Princess Kate Middleton craved Lavender Shortbread (which sounds as lovely and dainty as the princess herself!), and actress Drew Barrymore admitted to swinging through the drive-thru window for satisfying ice cream cones during her last pregnancy. You’re in good company if you reached for a tub of ice cream during your own pregnancy!

If you had pregnancy cravings for savory or spicy treats…

Hot chili sauce drizzled on ice cream? Sounds crazy, but that’s one of the savory treats Beyonce reportedly had pregnancy cravings for while pregnant with Blue Ivy. Jennifer Connelly dipped pretzels in cream cheese to satisfy her pregnancy cravings and Nicole Ritchie couldn’t get enough of the Japanese staple wasabi, even though she admits to disliking the hot green paste while not pregnant.

If you had pregnancy cravings for bizarre foods or combinations…

Buttered Pop tarts? Sounds good in theory, but not something we’d like to try anytime soon! Jessica Simpson craved buttered toaster snacks while pregnant with her daughter Maxwell. New mom Kerry Washington couldn’t get enough gluten-free pizza to satisfy her pregnancy cravings, which isn’t a strange food, but it’s such a healthy craving that it seems out of the ordinary! Kardashian sister Kourtney admitted to making a mayo and relish sandwich to quell an out-of-control pregnancy craving, and was relieved that she only wanted the strange combo once!

What was the craziest pregnancy craving you had while pregnant, moms?

Celebrity Baby Round Up: Spring Deliveries for Proud Famous Parents

Celebrity Baby Round Up: Spring Deliveries for Proud Famous ParentsJust in time for Mother’s Day—do you know which famous moms-to-be have delivered their own little stars? We’re taking a look at the newest, littlest group of Hollywood royalty to arrive. From movie stars to sports legends, a lot of talented celebrities are welcoming babies into their families!

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler

It’s a boy for The Fabulist’s Kristin and husband, Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler. The happy couple welcomed son Jaxon Wyatt Cutler on May 7th. The little man weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces and joins older brother Camden. Kristin posted a picture on her personal Instagram account to announce her baby’s birth; judging from the sweet sheepskin booties and blue knit hat, Kristin’s son Jaxon is going to be one stylish baby.

Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman

Funny actress Barrymore gave birth to her second daughter on April 22th. As a woman with a masculine first name, Drew continued the tradition and named her second daughter Frankie. We think it’s a great, unique name without being off-the-wall! Even though her daughters are still very young, Drew has big plans for their futures. In a recent interview with Redbook, Drew told the magazine that “I would really like to raise kids to do summer jobs and intern, and understand that if you are supposed to be somewhere at 3 o’clock, you need to be there at 3 o’clock.”

Bruce Willis and Emma Heming-Willis

Bruce and his second wife Emma welcomed their second daughter on May 5th. Evelyn Penn is Bruce’s fifth daughter (he has three adult daughters with ex-wife Demi Moore). Congratulations to the proud papa!

Roger Federer and Mirka Federer

This international tennis superstar and his wife Mirka welcomed their second set of twins, both boys, to the world this week. The couple is already parents to identical twin 4-year-old girls. What are the odds of two sets of twins? We’re not sure, but we’re willing to bet these happy parents will have their hands full for the foreseeable future.

Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha

The ultra-private Scandal actress and her NFL husband quietly celebrated the arrival of their little girl, Isabelle Amarachi, on April 22nd without the typical fanfare of a celebrity baby. The first-time mom is resting quietly at home with her new daughter.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis

Traditional baby names are definitely in style this spring, because you don’t hear the name Otis Alexander too often! The engaged pair welcomed their first son this past Easter. Proving she retained her sense of humor during delivery, Olivia tweeted from the hospital “Ladies and Gentlemen, Otis Alexander Sudeikis has LEFT the building (I’m the building).” We’ll miss Olivia’s glamorous pregnancy style but look forward to her little one’s chic ensembles to come!

Celebrity Baby Bump Watch 2014

Celebrity Baby Bump Watch 2014Even though we’ve already read about recent celebrity births (Rachel Zoe and Jennifer Love Hewitt, to name a few),  it looks like there are still plenty of celebrity babies due to arrive in 2014! Let’s take a look at the list of stars with buns in the oven, shall we?

Elsa Pataky + Chris Hemsworth

Not only is the Thor actor expecting a new arrival this year with wife Elsa, but the couple recently confirmed that Elsa is carrying twins! Daughter India Rose will have fun being big sister to two new siblings.

Ginnifer Goodwin + Josh Dallas

This couple’s on-set fairy-tale romance has led to an engagement and baby on the way! We bet that the little prince or princess will be a welcome addition to the Once Upon A Time cast.

Kelly Clarkson + Brandon Blackstock

The original American Idol superstar recently wed music producer Brandon Blackstock in a down-to-earth Tennessee ceremony and soon after revealed her pregnancy. Their baby will have no shortage of lullabies!

Drew Barrymore + Will Kopelman

Drew and Will will welcome another little girl to their growing family in 2014. Daughter Olive (born in 2012) will be a big sister. Drew has been keeping busy during her pregnancy—she recently released a cosmetics line and a new book!

Celebrity Parents Show Support at Baby2Baby’s 2nd Annual Gala Event

Celebrity Parents Show Support at Baby2Baby's 2nd Annual Gala EventOn Saturday, November 9th some of Hollywood’s most well-known moms and dads attended the second annual Baby2Baby Gala. Baby2Baby is a Los Angeles-based charity that collects new and gently worn baby clothes, toys, and other essentials and distributes them to needy families around the greater L.A. area. This year’s Gala was held in honor of Drew Barrymore, who recently announced her second pregnancy with husband Will Kopelman. Celebrity moms like Rachel Zoe, Jessica Alba, Nicole Ritchie, Jaime King not only came out to the silent auction to help raise money for distressed families, but Ritchie and Alba also serve as board members for the foundation. Alba’s company, The Honest Company, is a sponsor of Baby2Baby.

Baby2Baby was founded in 2006 by Kelly Patricof and Norah Weinstein who now serve as co-presidents of the foundation. According the official website, “Baby2Baby supplies Los Angeles families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for their children up to age 12. By distributing new and gently used items to over 50 non-profit organizations, including homeless and domestic violence shelters, Head Start programs and hospitals, Baby2Baby serves over 67,000 children each year.” Patricof and Weinstein’s first Baby2Baby gala, which featured a catered dinner prepared by famous chefs and a silent auction, successfully raised $1 million dollars. Hopefully this year’s gala exceeded the funds raised last year so more children can benefit from the foundation in 2014. Judging by the amount of celebrities who attended Saturday’s soiree, there’s a good chance that Baby2Baby will be able to expand their circle of partners and help more families in need!

It’s always heart-warming to see celebrities dedicate time and effort for important causes. Even though we’re not all big screen actors and actresses, many famous people are still moms and dads, first and foremost, and get involved because they know how crucial it is that babies and children have access to the basic necessities. Thanks to all those who attended the second annual gala, keep up the philanthropy!
