From Alicia Silverstone’s food pre-chewing to January Jones’ placenta pills, there have been some interesting parenting stories emerging from Hollywood lately. Though these famous mamas have taken some heat for their confessions, mom-to-be Vanessa Lachey is coming to their defense.
She doesn’t have kids of her own just yet, but Vanessa says she applauds these moms for trusting their own instincts: “No one can tell anybody how to mother until you’re a mother — and everyone has their own methods and I think it’s beautiful that these celebrity moms are doing what they’re doing unapologetically because it’s their child and it’s their life,” Vanessa tells The Insider. “I just wish that as a society we could just commend them for being mothers.”
As for her pregnancy, she reveals that all is well – “no morning sickness and no crazy cravings.” She’s prepared for all that to change, though! “I’m sure that I’ll become crazy when the hormones decide to kick in,” she says.
Vanessa and her husband Nick Lachey happily announced last month that they’re expecting their first child.
