Actress Ali Larter may be rocking that pregnancy glow, but years of working for that rocking body have turned her into the classic example of the naughty pregnant woman.
"I love it because so much of the time, I have to be careful. I work out. I play certain roles where it's important for me to look a certain way. But now it's just freedom. It's like, bring on the Sprinkles cupcakes, pizza, pasta. I'm loving it!"
If you're one of those women who try to follow the latest thing the celebs are doing, here's a tip for you: Back away from the buffet.
We're not buying what Larter's peddling.
Because everyone out there who says, "Oh, you're eating for two" is adding an extra two days at the gym to your life and taking two away from your baby.
Studies have shown the myth affects more than 50 percent of pregnant women, so Larter is not alone. But it seems to strike especially hard for moms-to-be who have been on some sort of restricted diet before pregnancy.
Speaking purely from the experience of being a recovering bulimic during my pregnancy, I can empathize -- for us it's the first time we've ever seen our bodies as acceptable with a little meat on them. For the first time, we are comfortable with ourselves.
We like the actress enough to say "here's hoping," but considering Larter has the money for personal trainers and a nanny to watch her kids while she works out, and you don't, let's just say don't try this at home.
