Bethenny Frankel Pregnancy Book

It looks like Bethenny Frankel will become the latest celebrity mama to write a book about pregnancy.

Her book will be titled Naturally Fit Pregnancy (or something similar), according to Us Weekly, and will follow along the track of the successful books she has had in the past. And while Frankel is already a published author, she is far from the only "celebrity" who has penned a book following pregnancy.

Here are a few others:


Nancy O'Dell: O'Dell, an entertainment reporter, published Full of Life: Mom to Mom Tips I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Was Pregnant in 2008. The book is full of tips and ideas, though it does make me question why someone would buy a book about pregnancy written by the host of Access Hollywood, but I guess to each their own.

Jenny McCarthy: The actress and hostess and Playboy model wrote Belly Laughs soon after the birth of her son, Evan. The book is one of the funniest I read in pregnancy and I recommend it highly to anyone looking for a good laugh.

Tori Spelling: Spelling's book Mommywood is not about pregnancy exactly, but it touches on aspects of her pregnancy and a lot about parenthood. Though I have not read it, the premise is intriguing and I would probably check it out just because I think Spelling is interesting.

Overall, though, my takeaway is this: Being pregnant at some point doesn't make one an expert in parenting and pregnancy. We all feel like the first time we go through it, it's the first time anyone has gone through it, but we also know that isn't true.

The market is just so saturated with books it's hard to imagine what these celebrities think they can contribute that an OB/GYN or expert couldn't. But if you're looking for a laugh or you find these people fascinating, the insight into their lives might be worth the $14.95 sticker price.
