WHOAH! She looks like she’s either lying about the due date (which wouldn’t be that surprising, since many celebs do) or she is carrying twins! I say this is because she looks much, much bigger than Nicole Richie and Christina Aguileria, who are also due in early Janaury.

Judging by the photo in this picture, it looks more likely that she’ll be having her baby in early December, or possibly even November!

Whoops! I just looked at one of the most recent Nicole posts here on CBB…and actually, Dominque’s bump is actually very similar in size to Nicole’s. So I stand corrected!

Hard to tell she was a gymnast with those big boobs now! 😀

Wow she already has a big belly.
My sister looked like that when she was almost 9 months pregnant with my niece.

Sarah’s note: She’s also tiny, so nowhere to go but out!

My sister is due the first week in January, and already looks 9 months pregnant. I was starting to wonder about Christina and Nicole, since they are due at the same time as her. Dominique looks much like my sister: round, beautiful, and in extreme discomfort!

Does anyone know how tall she is?

She’s actually not that tiny anymore–she’s about 5’3″ and of pretty normal size. I’ve stood next to her at gymnastics events and we’re about the same size. I’m 5’4″ and about 130 lbs.

Sarah’s note: I stand corrected then! I think everyone seems tiny to me because I’m 5’9″, haha.

Aww, I still can’t believe she’s having a baby! I was a fan of hers from when she was about 13/14, before she made the Olympic team and was just dominating. In my mind’s eye, she’s still the itty-bitty gymnast who tumbled around to The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

@ Sarah

My sister is also tiny. But well my niece wasn’t that big and maby Dominique is having a big baby.

meghan on

oh – she can get MUCH bigger… after seeing myself at 6 months and then now at 9 – somehow there’s always room to grow. she’s pretty average for 6 months i’d say… 5’3″ is short – so she will look a bit larger…

Yea she looks big Dominique, my friend is due late dec and pretty small, looks like nicole and christina and it’s her 3rd child actually.

wow i still can’t get over seeing dominique pregnant! in my mind she’s still that little girl from the olympics. i’m so happy for her. 🙂

Oh, my goodness. I was the BIGGEST Dominique Moceanu fan after the ’96 Olympics. I was totally and completely in love with her! Haha. It’s so weird that she’s 26, married, and have a baby! Whoa!!!! She looks absolutely beautiful. I love her big belly!

I have a cousin who is maybe an inch or two taller than her, but tiny. She’s had two children and all she did was grow outward but not by much . If you didn’t know any better, you wouldn’t have known she was pregnant both times. Of course, the father isn’t that tall…lmao.

Guess it all depends on genetics…

But, can’t wait to see Dominique’s photoshoot. 🙂

Outstanding! I have been out of touch for a while. Logged on and much to my surprise… a much fuller Dominique! I guess getting in the tuck position is now completely out of the question huh? lol You look great! Enjoy your pregnancy. It is a wonderful thing. Best wishes and prayers to you and Michael.
