11 Celebrity Moms Who Had Morning Sickness

Misery loves company, especially when you're knocked up and puking your brains out. In the height of morning sickness, crouched down in front of the toilet letting your insides explode, you might feel as if you're the only woman in the world who is this miserable. But you're far from alone—you're actually in quite glamorous company.

Here are 11 celebrities who went through the worst morning sickness has to offer before bringing their beautiful bundles of joy into the world:

Kelly Clarkson

The superstar singer is pregnant with her second child, but it hasn't been easy this time around. "I have to get IVs and fluids because I get so dehydrated. It's really bad," Clarkson told Gayle King on CBS This Morning.

Gwyneth Paltrow

"My mother loved each [pregnancy] to bits; she felt alive and beautiful. I wanted to throw up all the time," Paltrow shared. "Also, being pregnant is hard. Some women love it. I feel terrible from start to finish. So sick in the beginning and in such a bad mood."

Ali Landry

"I was definitely more nauseous—basically morning, noon, and night and eating horribly, like tons of carbs," the mom shared about her pregnancy. "Grilled cheese sandwiches, that was my thing."

Mariah Carey

Mariah, when pregnant with her twins, told USA Today, "Throwing up is bad for your voice," and that "The reflux is terrible, so I've been trying to just keep calm, get through it."

Debra Messing

"I don't know that any pregnancy is easy, " Messing said. "I had health problems. I had to spend time in bed, resting, and having intravenous fluids. But having a baby was something I'd looked forward to for my entire life, so any temporary sacrifice seems worth it."

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton famously suffered through severe morning sickness in the form of hyperemesis gravidarum, which is intense vomiting that can lead to dehydration. It got so bad that she had to be hospitalized.


Gwyneth Paltrow dished on Beyoncé's morning sickness when she was performing while pregnant with Blue Ivy: "She was absolutely incredible, especially as she was barfing in between."

Tia Mowry

"The nausea kind of got the best of me," Tia explained about her pregnancy. "I actually wear these nausea bands; they're like motion sickness bands that people wear on, like, cruise ships and stuff, and they have been my best friends. They're part of my wardrobe now."
