Vanessa Lachey has looked stylish and chic throughout her pregnancy – and she plans on bringing her designer fashions into the delivery room!
“I just found out I don’t have to wear a hospital gown during labor & delivery. I got very excited! Hmm, what to wear,” she tweeted, with the hash tag “It’s the little things.”
Lachey, who is expecting her first child any day now with her husband Nick Lachey, is not the first celebrity who wants to bring a little style in the hospital room. The crafty Tori Spelling made her own hospital gown and tweeted out fabric choices for her fans to help her decide the perfect print. Jessica Simpson wrote about a dream she had in which she wore a “leopard caftan in the hospital,” and wondered where she could find one. Jennifer Lopez gave birth to her twins in 2008 in a couture hospital gown t – and you know that Beyonce didn’t give birth to baby Blue in a standard issue gown!
So, what should Lachey wear to give birth? A gown is ideal because it allows easy access for the nurses and doctors during delivery. It should be soft cotton that is washable and it should be short enough so that it doesn’t interfere with delivery.
Instead of the boring blue with the embarrassing flaps in the back that leave you overexposed, Lachey could consider the Dear Johnnies designer hospital gowns. These hospital gowns come in gorgeous prints with decorative snaps down the back – and can even be monogrammed!
Even though Spelling made her gown for the recent delivery of baby Finn, back in 2008 she gave birth on her reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood wearing a designer gown from B.Y.O.G. (Bring Your Own Gown) in a fashionable black and white floral Havana Rose print.
Other celebrities, like Gisele Bundchen, had a water birth and may have worn a swimsuit/bikini or tank top while giving birth. Other moms like to wear their favorite tees or their husband’s shirt – for good luck, of course.
As far as Lachey, it sounds like she has decided on her labor and delivery attire. “I just got sent the CUTEST labor gown and Baby Lachey outfit from @PoshPushers!,” she tweeted. “Thanks ladies for thinking of us! #FashionAndComfort.”
