When I decided to take the plunge into matrimony at 5 months pregnant, I found some comfort in knowing that there were other brides out there who understood my situation. 

There are a lot of, shall we say, unique challenges to walking down the aisle when you’re expecting, so I admit that I loved seeing celebrities who made toting a bridal bump look not only completely doable, but downright glamorous. 

These ladies made sporting a bridal bump look glamorous. 

I know how hard it can be to stand up when other people seem to be judging, so in an effort to capture some of that glamour, I present my round-up of celebrity mamas who got married while pregnant.

Reese Witherspoon

I’ve always been slightly obsessed with Reese Witherspoon. Hello, Legally Blonde. But when I found out that, like me, she had an unexpected pregnancy at a young age and chose to get married while she was still pregnant, I knew I loved her even more. And even though her marriage to then-husband Ryan Phillippe didn’t last, I still think Reese is a great example of a dedicated mom who has it all.

Bethenny Frankel

Can’t say I’m the world’s biggest Bethenny fan, although I do appreciate her candor and honesty. I also appreciated the way she didn’t care what anyone thought about getting married while she was pregnant.

She flaunted tradition by wedding her fiance at a whopping 8 months pregnant. Take that, Titanic!

Jennifer Garner

How did I miss that this squeaky-clean couple also had a little oopsie before they were married? This dimpled celebrity was 3 months along when she and hubby Ben Affleck tied the knot.

Kendra Wilkinson

Ok, so maybe some people won’t be surprised by this one, but this former playmate was pregnant before she got married – and at her wedding she was definitely hiding a baby bump under that princess gown.

Miranda Kerr

Although she’s used to the spotlight, this model didn’t put her baby bump on display at her wedding, instead choosing to streamline her look with baby-in-tow.

Jessica Alba 

She got married in the early spring, and then popped out her first daughter that summer. Allow me to do that math on that one…

    Wow! I wonder if i can find Kate’s preggy bride picture somewhere!

  2. Profile photo of Liz Liz says:

    I’m glad Miranda was included in this list. my boyfriend and I are expecting in April and don’t plan to get married any time soon. we have enough to deal with right now, and I don’t want to be someone who gets married because I “have to” but rather because we want to.

  3. Profile photo of Amanda Amanda says:

    i know things happen in life that aren’t planned, but this is why we need to re-evaluate who we put up on a pedestal. Personally, I would rather support Prince William and Kate for having a baby AFTER marriage and being a good role model for all couples….than put a celebrity who may be doing this for media coverage and free press.

    Hey, celebs are people, too. Expecting before you were married kinda ran in my family. It really isn’t that big of a deal. Celebs get noticed more because, well, they are celebs. Kudos to them when they do marry. At least they tried to raise the child together.

    I have no problems with people getting married while pregnant but hope they planned on getting married before they find out they are pregnant.
