Pregnancy blues or bliss? Gwen Stefani and Natalie Portman on opposite sides

How the celebrity mum and mum-to-be love and hate their pregnancy bodies

Gwen Stefani
Gwen REALLY didn't like her mum-to-be body

Gwen Stefani hated it, but Natalie Portman doesn’t seem phased by the idea of baby weight. But then, the Black Swan star hasn’t even had her baby yet – so we hope Gwen’s comments to Elle magazine don’t put her off.

“It was horrible,” Gwen said about her pregnancy. “You feel pretty gross when you’re first pregnant. You don’t feel cute you feel disgusting. You’re getting fat. It was hard.”

But the experience obviously wasn’t hard enough to put her off having a second baby with hubby Gavin Rossdale.  And who can blame her – her eldest Kingston is so cute he’s already chatting up girls aged 4!

But Natalie is taking pregnancy body changes in her stride. “It will be what it’s meant to be. If you’re a little softer, I’m sure it’s more comfy for the little kid to sleep on,” she said.

In fact, she’s really enjoying her baby bump. “It’s really fun. I love having the evidence of the baby, cause I think it’s weird, the part of the pregnancy where you don’t see any changes,” Natalie said. “It’s really fun to have the constant physical reminders.”
