Most of us dread being seen in a bikini—let alone being photographed in one.
Let alone being photographed in one while pregnant! But here’s why the stars
are different: Jamie-Lynn Sigler says she has no problem wearing a bikini while
expecting, and actually prefers to have a bun in the oven if she’s going to
have her scantily-clad bod in the tabloids, according to the LA Times.
At her baby shower on Wednesday, she told a People magazine writer, “I would
probably not be caught in a bikini otherwise, but when you’re pregnant, it is
what it is! However your body’s carrying is how your body’s carrying.”
Of course, Jamie-Lynn had a bangin’ bod before becoming a mom-to-be, which
probably doesn’t hurt. Nor does the love and admiration of a totally cool
partner: Sigler, 32, who was recently seen on Guys with Kids, is expecting a
baby boy in August with Cutter Dykstra, 23, a minor league baseball player.
She’s also got good friends in her corner, including her BFF, actress JoAnna
Garcia (JoAnna’s a new mom too; she had a baby girl in May with baseball star
Nick Swisher). "Garcia talked me through her entire [birth process], so I know
everything that happened—the good, the bad, the ugly, and so I’ve got all the
pointers,” Jamie-Lynn says. “She’ll probably be there when I give birth, so it’s
been nice to have her go through it and get to experience it with her.”
Jamie-Lynn's baby shower was held on the upper west side of Manhattan at hotspot Sugar
and Plumm. The proceeds of the bash benefited Baby Buggy, a charity that provides
essential gear and other help to needy families.
