You have to take under consideration how difficult it is for a woman to not only carry a baby for 9 months, but take care of herself at the same time. One thing that makes a pregnant woman so beautiful is her strength and motherly instincts starting to appear during her pregnancy.  This type of beauty is something any man or woman can appreciate.

Now it’s time to unveil the celebs who became even more beautiful while pregnant.

The stunning, blonde made her claim to fame in the CW drama, Gossip Girl, starring as Serena van der Woodsen.  During that same span, she made appearances in some popular movies including: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Accepted, The Town and Oliver Stone’s film, Savages.

Before meeting her current husband, Ryan Reynolds, she had a fling with the ultimate Hollywood Playboy, Leonardo DiCarprio.  She must not have realized that he runs through Victoria’s Secret models before committing to him.  It was rumored that Leo loved the way she cooked for him.  She was the first girlfriend he ever had that loved to be in the kitchen.  These were early signs of her motherly instincts.

During the filming of Green Lantern in 2010, she met her present husband, Ryan Reynolds.  They began dating in 2011 and by 2012 bought a home together in Bedford, New York. It didn’t take them long to get married, by September 2012 they were tying the knot.

The tall, leggy blonde kept her near flawless form throughout her pregnancy.  The extra baby pounds didn’t take away from her raw beauty in the least.  The baby was born in 2014, it was a little baby girl, James.  The two are still happily married today.
