A very pregnant Molly Sims was in full bloom while walking the red carpet at the Step Up Women’s Network 9th Annual Inspiration Awards Luncheon at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday(June 8).
Due to welcome her baby boy this month, Molly recently covered Fit Pregnancy Magazine and spoke about getting her nursery ready, her maternity style and her birth plan.
As the big day nears, the actress and her husband are feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of things they need to do before their little guy arrives.
I’m definitely slowing down. I’m also noticing the nesting instinct is starting to kick in. We’re getting the nursery together, and I’m trying to figure out what the baby needs without getting overwhelmed. For a first-time mom, it’s hard to figure out what you will and won’t really use. I am putting a bed in the nursery so I can breastfeed more easily at night, and a great glider.
She has, however, made a list of gear that she gear she will be using,
My husband and I are both tall and love the Orbit Baby system because of the swivel car seat (much easier to get the baby in and out for us), but I think we’ll get a Bugaboo stroller to use in New York. I got the Boon Naked bathtub, and I’m loving Earth Mama Angel Baby body care products. I know I will need a breast pump, too.
Molly has definitely been one of the more stylish moms we have followed. She tells Fit Pregnancy that during her pregnancy she has loved ‘anything stretchy’ and has kept her wardrobe conservative.
I have an A Pea In The Pod stretchy camisole I love, and I have been living in my Splendid hot pink tie-dye skirt. I love anything really stretchy, especially pieces from Rachel Pally and Ella Moss. One thing I’ve learned is that while you’re pregnant, if you wear tight-fitting clothes, you look thinner. At first everything felt really itchy, so I had to be picky. I also didn’t want to spend too much on maternity clothes, so I bought just six skirts and six dresses. And, I splurged on a pair of silk pajamas.
When the big moment arrives, she has birth plan but she knows it depends on the situation.
My OB-GYN is Michelle Hakakha, who co-wrote Expecting 411 (Windsor Peak Press). She’s really knowledgeable and doesn’t make you feel guilty about anything. She tells me, “You’re not going to get a medal for any of this, so don’t hold on too tight to any plan or you could be disappointed.” I have a doula, Lori Bregman, creator of Rooted For Life, to help during and after the birth, and I start interviewing pediatricians this month.
Baby Stuber will be here very soon and we wish Molly and Scott the best during the delivery!
