Molly Sims Named A Pea in the Pod Ambassador

02/27/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Now that’s a model mama!

Expectant star Molly Sims is squeezing in one last modeling gig before she welcomes her second child, a girl, in March — and the results are absolutely stunning.

The author of The Everyday Supermodel has been named the first ever ambassador for celeb fave A Pea in the Pod and will star in the maternity line’s summer 2015 campaign.

“A mother, model, actress and now author, Molly exemplifies the A Pea in the Pod mom-to-be who does it all with exceptional style,” reads the press release.

Sims, 41, shows off her growing baby bump — and her gorgeous glow! — in a series of shots featuring striped tanks, cute camisoles and chic cocktail dresses.

After the photo shoot in Tarzana, California, PEOPLE caught up with Sims, who shared her thoughts on everything from 2½-year-old son Brooks Alan and her daughter’s name to her baby buys and working with the brand.

Molly Sims Shares Her Secret to Bouncing Back After Giving Birth

02/26/2015 at 12:30 PM ET

After tying the knot at 38, Molly Sims immediately wanted to start a family — and her wish came true when she got pregnant on her honeymoon.

Fast-forward to the couple trying to conceive their second child, and the model’s age — she was now 41 — posed a much bigger problem.

“People always think, ‘Oh, you have to take care of yourself once you get pregnant or when you have the baby,’ but your body is like a garden,” Sims says in the latest issue of The Bump.

“You have to feed it and make sure it’s fertile before you even start trying. I saw a great acupuncturist who put me on fertility teas.”

Once she became pregnant — Sims is now expecting a daughter in March — the mom-to-be stuck with her healthy habits but eased up on her workout routine.

“My body just didn’t feel like I needed it, especially in the middle months, and I didn’t want to push it as hard,” she explains. “Some days you have the energy, and some days you feel like you’ve been hit by a bus.”

Keira Knightley! Hilaria Baldwin! The Oscar Night’s Best Baby Bumps

02/23/2015 at 05:30 PM ET

Sure, there were the wine-colored lips and the casual ponytails and even the matchy-matchy dress code.

But one of the best looks during Sunday night’s Oscars was all the baby bumps both on the red carpet (Keira Knightley! Sophie Hunter!) and during the after parties (Isla FisherLisa Osbourne!).

And from Knightley’s floor-length ensemble to Hilaria Baldwin and Molly Sims‘s fitted frocks, the evening was all about moms-to-be showing off their burgeoning bellies.

Sticking to her maternity mantra of loose-fitted clothing, the Imitation Game actress first stepped out on the red carpet in a flirty floral Valentino Couture gown, that kept her belly mostly under wraps while posing for photos with husband James Righton.

But, much to our delight, Knightley, 29, later slipped into another Valentino dress, featuring an empire waist that gave everyone a good peek at her growing midsection during the Vanity Fair afterparty.

Molly Sims: Why I Make Brooks Give Away Half of His Birthday Presents

02/08/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Molly Sims is all for celebrating her child’s birthday, but she’s determined to teach her son Brooks Alan that the gift of giving is half the fun.

“Santa Claus came. Birthdays come. We pick out our toys that we want and then we give half of them to Baby2Baby,” the model and actress, 41, told PEOPLE while donating school supplies to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles with the help of Yoobi and Starlight Children’s Foundation on Wednesday.

“When he goes and drops it [off] it’s hard for a 2½-year-old to give up a Transformer, but we do it because you have to teach them young.”

Brooks will soon be getting the biggest gift of all: Sims and her husband Scott Stuber are expecting their second child — a girl! — in March.

“He told me yesterday that he had a baby in his belly,” says The Everyday Supermodel author. “I was walking down the stairs a couple of days ago and he goes, ‘Mama has a big belly’ and I’m like, ‘Yes, she does.'”

Why Molly Sims Is ‘Not Opposed’ to a Natural Birth After Previous C-Section

01/21/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Molly Sims always knew she would be a mother, a suspicion confirmed during her frequent visits to psychics during her younger years.

But what she didn’t know was that her dreams of having a baby would come much later in life.

“I would have been a good mom earlier, but I didn’t find my prince until I was older,” The Everyday Supermodel author says in the February issue of Jeff Lipsky for Fit Pregnancy.

“I don’t regret starting later — everything I’ve wanted to do, I’ve done. I lived in Europe for six years, waitressed, worked at a book company and in a law office.”

Although she wouldn’t change the timeline of her life, Sims — who is mom to 2½-year-old son Brooks Alan and expecting her second child with husband Scott Stuber — admits her age has played a factor in her pregnancies. After discovering the couple would be welcoming another babya girl due in March — Sims decided to keep the news a secret until it was safe to share.

“I’m 41, so I had an ultrasound and blood tests to make sure everything was okay,” she explains. “We waited until we got the results at 14 weeks to tell anyone, but my in-laws came to visit early on and they said I looked green!”

Molly Sims Not Looking Forward to ‘Dark Days’ of Pregnancy

12/08/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Molly Sims has a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks besides the holidays.

The actress, model, and author — already mom to son Brooks Alan, 2 1/2 — will be learning the sex of her second baby.

“We’re going to find out soon, like in two weeks, three weeks. We’re excited,” she told PEOPLE at Old Navy + Novogratz This Is Family event at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood.

Although Sims, 41, has a lot to be excited about, she knows that she has difficult pregnancy days waiting for her just around the corner.

“I’m feeling good. I’m six months so I’m in the honeymoon [phase], which is slowly going to end soon,” she shares. “I call it the dark days.”
