Vanessa LacheySometimes no matter how hard you try and keep your weight in check during pregnancy, you still wind up putting on a few more pounds than you initially expected and end up tipping the scales well above the recommended 25 to 35 pound weight gain. (Which is a total crock anyway.) And even though they're known for their fabulous figures, celebrities are also susceptible to the battle of the pregnancy bulge. She looks so amazing now, you'd never guess that Vanessa Lachey gained 65 pounds while pregnant with her son Camden.

For real! And can you believe she had no qualms about putting that number out there? Gotta love her for it.

See? Gaining a decent amount of weight really isn't as uncommon as you think. And if celeb moms aren't afraid to spill the beans on how many pounds they added to their fab figures -- none of us should be either.

Check out these photos to see 6 more celebrities who gained over 50 pounds while pregnant.
