Real Housewives When They Were Pregnant

I'm pretty sure the ladies on Real Housewives carefully plan out their outfits, hair, and makeup for every single scene they film. But while they appear to have every element under control, I can think of one time when they really couldn't have complete power over their look: pregnancy. I cannot help but be curious about what the Real Housewives looked like when they were pregnant. These are the kind of women who look beautiful and glamorous at all times, so I would be pretty shocked if pregnancy was any different.

Well, apparently being pregnant does not always make for the most glamorous life, even if you are a reality TV star. Kim Zolciak shared her honest thoughts about pregnancy when she posted a baby bump photo on Instagram when she was carrying her twins in 2013. Zolciak wrote,

Sooooo with all the request I finally decided to post My baby bump today! The twins will be here this month and we are soooo excited and I'm soooo over being pregnant! #countingdownthedays

Poor Kim, but at least it's nice to see that the Real Housewives are normal people when it come down to it.

Looking at photos of the Real Housewives women during their pregnancies shows me that these ladies are pretty fabulous no matter what they have going on their lives — and pregnancy is no different. In fact, that pregnancy glow is a very real thing.

Phaedra Parks

Phaedra exuded sex appeal and confidence while pregnant. She's working it!

Kim Zolciak

I have say, I agree with the person who posted this tweet.

Kandi Burruss

Pregnancy definitely agrees with Kandi. She is glowing and looks beautiful with her pregnant belly!

Bethenny definitely embraced her pregnancy. Of course, she was rocking that signature SkinnyGirl red. Gotta represent her brand.

These ladies look amazing no matter what, pregnant or not. It's just nice to see that they were all happy and healthy during such an important and beautiful time in their lives.
