Former ‘The Hills’ Star Whitney Port Speaks Out About Loving Her Pregnancy Body
Whitney Port, who rose to fame on MTV’s reality TV show The Hills, is pregnant with her first child.
But while the blonde fashion designer is keeping pretty tight-lipped on when her little one is due, she is speaking out about pregnancy life.
In a bid to make all girls, pregnant or not, feel more body confident, the 32-year old took to Instagram to talk about learning to love your body, no matter what its size.
The down-to-earth TV star explained in a heartwarming message that it’s okay to accept what your body is doing during the nine months of pregnancy.
Boy, am I growing! In every direction! At first, I must be honest, I had a very hard time coming to terms with my changing body. I had always prided myself on being healthy from the inside out and it was difficult not labeling my pregnant body “fat”. But as time has gone on, I have come to appreciate what my body is ACTUALLY doing. Don’t get me wrong, I still look at myself in the mirror every day in disbelief about the fact that my boobs are now triple d’s or that when I look down, I can’t see my feet, etc., but I remind myself I’m growing a gift and this gift needs room to grow. Just as we all do.
She has also given some insightful tips on her fitness regime, admitting to drinking protein shakes for extra energy.
The model, who had her own spin-off show titled The City, explained,
Honestly, my goals this summer are limitless! Now, more than ever, it’s so important for me to be healthy and get the right nutrients. I have been relying on the @premierprotein shake to give me that extra boost to stay active and healthy, especially after a workout! Once I have this baby and I’m sleep deprived, like everyone tells me I’m going to be, I’ll be relying on these shakes even more to give me the energy I need to get back in shape.

We first heard of Whitney’s exciting news through an Instagram post in February.
Posting a snap of her growing bump, the much-loved author wrote, “Oh hey! Just standing by the window in my underwear, with a BABY in my belly!”.
She is expecting her newborn with husband, Tim Rosenman, whom she married in 2015.
But Port isn’t the only The Hills star with a bundle of joy on the way.
The lead star of the show, Lauren Conrad, is also pregnant with her first child.
Conrad recently revealed on Instagram that her and hubby, William Tell, are expecting a boy.
Whereas Lauren’s former co-star and long-term friend, Whitney, hasn’t found out the sex of her baby.
The mom-to-be recently threw a gender-neutral baby shower at the SIXTY Beverly Hills Hotel.
She explained that the expecting parents are keeping everything neutral until the baby arrives.
I’m kind of the person where, even if we did know the gender, I wouldn’t go all blue or all pink — I’m just not that kind of mom. I want it to be calming and neutral, like nudes and whites. We’re just staying away from anything too gender-specific.
It seems like both Whitney and Lauren finally found the men of their happy-ever-after following all that on-screen drama.
We can’t wait for both The Hills babies to arrive!
