On Nicole Richie's Body After Baby

As you know Nicole Richie and Joel Madden had a little baby named Harlow. I don't know a lot about them but I occasionally peruse the celebrity-mom blogs because I seek community among mothers of all sorts. So her interview with Harper's Bazaar caught my eye. See my annotations in red.

On her body after baby:
"Half my wardrobe is already stretched. Tell me about it. Not all my clothes fit the same. That happens to you too? I thought rich people could buy new clothes in every size. You're just like me after all! I don't even think it's a weight thing; Uhhh--me not so much. But whatever. I think your body just changes after you have a baby. Can I get an amen? I don't care either way, Me neither sistah! but I'm not used to having a tank top or bra underneath my clothes. What the? You always hear that people with blond hair or larger breasts get more attention, but I never really thought that was real! Wait, huh? Is this about nursing or just--you're losing me. . . Nicole? I bet Lionel is an amazing grandfather, right? I like wearing shirts You better start talking about Onesies soon. . . that are a bit see-through because before it didn't really matter. Is this about how you got pregnant? But now it's like, Uh-oh, I could get arrested." Um. You're weird.

Oh, come on! Nicole and Joel are a regular couple. See how they just work in the yard and stuff?

  4. What? You don't look like that when you do yard work with your husband?

    It's actually a good day when I put a bra on to go out in our backyard. Or front yard. Whatev.

  5. I don't even know who these celebrities are - my popular culture awareness is pretty pathetic - but they seem to fit the stereotype!!

  7. So...see-through shirts and no pads...I think those milk spots on her chest is what would get her arrested.

  9. You've nailed it.
    See through shirts = unplanned pregnancy. It just makes sense.

    That photo makes me think I live on an entirely different planet than these people.

  11. I was feeling so alone, having all these kids, not having time to exercise and accepting my changed body, adjusting to very little time to myself, and after reading this, I just don't feel. . . .so alone.

    i'm fairly certain the picture is supposed to be ironic... which works with the post, but not with these comments.

  19. They look just like regular folks out in the yard. Except for the dry clean only dress, impractical shoes, perfect hair, $3million buggy, a husband in a suit who has clearly never held a rake before in his life, oh, yeah, and he's raking...the gravel???

  21. Of course this is reality! I know you like to wear thin tops with no bra... who doesn't. And trimming the hedge in a party dress... AMEN.

    What a joke. Love your comments.
