Looking good!

Actress Christina Applegate belted her blossoming bump at the premiere of Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore in Hollywood, Calif. on Sunday.

“One thing that’s been really important is trying to not be stressed out or let other people stress you out. It’s not about you anymore, it’s about the bump,” she told PEOPLE’s Moms & Babies.

And what has Applegate been up to since the big announcement? Nothing, she jokes!

“Yeah, I don’t have any work, at all,” she laughs. “And now that everyone knows about this, I probably won’t have any work for the rest of the year.”

Applegate, 38, and her fiancรฉ Martyn Lenoble — who were engaged on Valentine’s Day — announced that they are expecting their first child last week.

Congratulations to Christina and her fiance! Best wishes for a happy, healthy baby! :o)

One request for the folks at People, though… could you use another word/expression besides “baby bump” in the future when writing about celebrity pregnancies? That phrase is about the silliest thing I’ve ever heard and has become overused to the point of annoying! You all are writers — surely you can come up with something else instead of using this phrase every time a celebrity is pregnant.

I have never heard of someone having to ‘dress their belly’. That’s a weird thing to say.. And to put a tight belt on top of her stomach?? On the positive side, she Does look radiant. Wear that belly proud!! Don’t worry how to ‘dress’ it…

for future pics put your hand under the belly, not on top, to accentuate it ๐Ÿ™‚ She looks so pretty. Oh I like ‘baby bump.’ Doesn’t bother me at all. I hate ‘over the moon’ and calling babies delicious though.

Julie on

She looks beautiful and glowing – I am so happy for her!

I dislike calling it a “bump.” I was beyond ecstatic when I was pregnant, and found I really disliked when people referred to it as a “bump.” To me, a bump is when you fall and a lump forms, not for a beautiful new life within you. Congrats to Christina and Martyn.

Jane, Not sure if you’ve ever been pregnant, but her phrase “not knowing how to dress the belly” makes perfect sense. First off, it’s her first pregnancy, so she doesn’t know what to expect. Secondly, when you’re in the first couple months of pregnancy there’s a time where you look fat, not pregnant, in normal clothes, but maternity clothes are waaay too big. That’s probably where she’s going when she says that! ๐Ÿ™‚

Bump is silly. Especially with news outlets using it for every pregnancy related story for nearly every female entertainer.

Madison on

When is she due? Can anyone tell from her bump how far along she is? 4 months? So would that mean she’s due at Christmas?
