Celebrities can often just feel like really popular girlfriends. You get the inside scoop on what's going on in their life through interviews, social media posts, memoirs, blogs, and appearances. And since they're still human, despite any and all evidence to the contrary, so what they strive for, cope with, and experience can be fairly relatable even for those who don't grace the covers of magazines or walk red carpets. They can give advice or let you know you're not alone. Want to know how to wear hats? Here's the perfect outfit. Questions about intimacy while pregnant? Here are some celeb moms who were open about pregnancy sex.
Opinions vary widely on pregnancy sex, anywhere from "love it" to "stay away from me." Well, celebrities get it, guys. Some celeb moms feel empowered, especially beautiful, or more connected to their partners and think pregnancy sex is a big part of that. Some don't even want to go there because they feel ill, exhausted, or more whale-like than sexy throughout their pregnancies. These nine celebrity moms have been exceptionally open and honest about their feelings regarding pregnancy sex, and, like all women, have different ideas about it. Whatever your personal pregnancy sex feelings, these ladies will make sure that you don't feel alone.
1. Kristen Bell
In an appearance on the Conan show, Kristen Bell told Conan O'Brien (as well as the audience in-studio and, you know, whoever was watching at home) that husband Dax Shepard liked her pregnant body, feeling that any weight she gained was "more of you to love," according to US Weekly. Bell also disclosed that Shepard told her that sex while she was pregnant made him feel like he was with someone else entirely.
2. Angelina Jolie
According to the CBS News website, back in 2008, when Angelina Jolie was pregnant with twins, she told Entertainment Weekly that being pregnant was "great for the sex life" because it "makes you a lot more creative."
3. Ali Fedotowsky
Count Ali Fedotowsky in the "definitely not" pregnancy sex camp. The former Bachelorette told US Weekly that she wanted husband-to-be Kevin Manno to stay far away from her.
4. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi
Jersey Shore star Snooki said that pregnancy made her sex life with fiance Jionni LaValle better, according to Parents.
5. Kristin Cavallari
Kristin Cavallari told Fit Pregnancy that pregnancy sex is "funny." Cavallari said communication with husband (and Chicago Bears quarterback) Jay Cutler is very important when it comes to sex while pregnant because it's different from the norm. Again, different people feel differently about topic.
6. Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett
Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett talked pregnancy sex on her blog on People's website writing that it was "lacking" during her second pregnancy because she occasionally worries that husband Hank Baskett isn't attracted to her. I'm betting lots of moms-to-be can relate to that.
7. Catherine Giudici
Catherine Giudici married Bachelor alum Sean Lowe and told US Weekly that while Lowe "tries to be gentle," the Giudici-Lowes are definitely fans of sex during pregnancy.
8. Naya Rivera
Naya Rivera wrote about sex during pregnancy for her blog on People's website, writing that in the second trimester, sex with then-husband Ryan Dorsey was a bit strange. Rivera said sex was pretty much limited to two positions, so it was an "odd" experience during pregnancy.
9. Jessica Simpson
In 2012, Jessica Simpson told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that her sex drive while pregnant was "unstoppable," according to US Weekly, and that she's a big fan of pregnancy sex. Simpson also let slip that then husband-to-be Eric Johnson is "always ready" to be intimate.
