Best wishes to her! I can’t wait to see this little one, I bet she will be gorgeous. Ellen has stayed in fabulous shape during this pregnancy, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she loses the pregnancy weight with little to no effort. She is all belly.

she looks fantastic.. and very happy
looking forward to seeing pics of her little girl
is it just me? or does she look like she has wet patches on her shirt?

c&i’s mamma, I was thinking the same thing… I dunno if it’s a weird fit because we can see her bra or leakage. But other than that she looks fantastic. She’s so lucky and beautiful she’s all belly. That baby girl is going to be so lucky to have her as a mother – I’m sure she’ll get all the tips she needs from co-stars on Grey’s who are parents.

Love her! She has to be one of the best looking expecting mom’s(and non pregnant celebs normally) that I have ever seen! She’s one actress that I always find lovable and gorgeous! I hope I look that good when I have kids! Please keep the Ellen info coming…can’t wait for this baby to come! While I completely understand the privacy issue and I would understand every completely if she didn’t, I do hope she does a photo shoot for Allure or People or something with the baby! I think it’s doubtful that she will, but we all know this baby is going to be beautiful! Congrats Ellen and Chris!

She looks great. I thought that too about the wet patches. It looks like she may be wearing breast pads in her bra. I remember leaking a lot before having my son.
