Angie Everhart: I'm Ready To Be a Mom

Angie Everhart isn’t one to leave anything to the last minute.

“I’m completely prepared,” she says about welcoming her first-born, a boy that she will deliver next Wednesday.

“The nursery is done, the name is picked and I’ve even got a year’s supply of Seventh Generation diapers.”

The actress-model, who is the new face for Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula stretch mark products, reveals she’s naming her son Kayden Bobby Everhart.

“Kay is my mom and my middle name, and Bobby is my dad’s name,” explains the actress and model.

This past weekend, the final touches were placed on Kayden’s “safari rock n’ roll” nursery, which includes a mural featuring a giraffe wearing headphones and a monkey playing a Van Halen guitar.

“I was never one for pastels,” Angie says with a laugh.

The mom-to-be, 39, has experienced an easy pregnancy devoid of nausea or complications. Her biggest craving? “My first trimester, I could’ve killed someone for an egg salad,” she says. “I ate so much egg salad, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at it again for the rest of my life.”

Due to a previous back surgery, she will deliver via scheduled c-section next week. “Would I have preferred to deliver naturally? Of course,” she says. “But it’s not an option for me.”

Finding out she was pregnant was “a welcome surprise.” Describing the father as a close friend but declining to reveal anything further, Angie says she plans to raise her son as a single parent. “I’m not nervous,” she says. “The only time I got shaky was when my girlfriends gave me a stroller and I’m standing behind it thinking, ‘There’ll soon be a human in there that’s coming out of me!’ ”

As for getting back into model shape, “I’m not too worried,” says Angie, whose national print and TV campaign for Palmer’s Cocoa Butter pregnancy products will premiere this fall and winter. “I’ll have a child and my two puppies to take care of. I think I’ll have my hands full.”

She is absolutely gorgeous! Her son will be beautiful as well. Sure hope she likes the Seventh Generation diapers though… it’s awful early to me to already have a years supply. What if they don’t work for them? Then she’s stuck.

OMG, my god-son is due to arrive @ the end of August & his first name will be Kayden as well…Side note, I love Palmer’s products, currenly using their fade creme & shea butter formula…does wonders for your skin.

What exactly are seventh generation diapers? Are they cloth? I hear a lot about them on this site.

I bought the Palmer’s lotion when I was pregnant and was really excited about it. It does have a strong scent, but it didn’t bother me, the pregnant lady with the weird sense of smell. No, it bothered my husband! He couldn’t be in the same room with me for hours after I put it in, so I had to get rid of it. 😦

I’m thinking she’ll start out with the newborn size & see how it goes. If its like the set-up my friend has, you’re started off with 40 or so diapers and as you’re getting low call up for a new supply.

I am all about being as “green” as possible and also bought a good amount of seventh generation diapers for my newborn but I have to say they are not that great for that stage. My son kept leaking through them and I would have to change his clothes a few times a day which kind of takes away from being so environmentally friendly when you have to do more loads of wash. I used them for my daughter starting at age 1 and she still wears their pull ups at night….I haven’t had any trouble with my daughter using them. I think when they are young and have those messy breastfeeding poops…they really need the swaddlers. Just my opinion! Hope she doesn’t regret the year supply she bought.

Whole Foods also has an environmentally friendly brand of diapers on their own label called “365”. They are a bit cheaper than Seventh Generation and made the same way: without bleach, synthetic dyes or perfumes or latex, etc. I go back and forth between the two brands depending on what is available and I actually prefer the Whole Foods brand….:)

Angie looks great. As for my experience with Palmer’s – I got a horrible rash everywhere I put it. My doc thinks I might have a cocoa butter allergy. Yikes!

Nothing against Angie for having a C-section, but this is something I’ve been curious about for awhile: Why do women who have had back surgery usually have to deliver VIA C-section? Can anyone fill me in?

SouthernBelle on

ErykaWynter, I don’t know the ingredient list for Palmer’s, but I would be curious to see if one of the ingredients on the list is lanolin. I have a terrible allergy to lanolin (which is the fatty substance extracted from sheep’s wool) and I also can’t wear wool against my skin (all coats, skirts, sweaters and pants have to be lined!) If it doesn’t contain lanolin, your allergy could also be a fragrance allergy (I have those too!) and I do know that Palmer’s does add fragrance to their products. In any case, products have a multitude of ingredients, so it could be any one of the ingredients added. If you find you are having rashes from a number of products, check the ingredient list to see what those products have in common. It very well could be the cocoa butter, especially if you are allergic to chocolate! Palmer’s is a great product, but I will have to agree with a previous post…I couldn’t handle the strong smell. I love the smell of cocoa butter, but Palmer’s smell is so strong that I couldn’t handle that much fragrance, especially while pregnant and nauseous. Angie looks radiant. How sweet to honor her parents by naming little Kayden Bobby after both of them. Love the name Kayden!

No mention of a partner in the article…. Is she having this baby alone?

Never mind… I just re-read it. I must be tired.
