Earlier this week, I covered some new photos of Sienna Miller and her baby-daddy, Tom Sturridge. Tom and Sienna were in Portofino, Italy, in the midst of what I assumed was there “babymoon,” or the holiday that many couples have a few months before the baby is born. I still don’t really know when Sienna is due, but I’m still guessing that it’s probably late June or early July. Anyway, what I didn’t notice about these photos is that there seems to be some alcohol in the mix. The header photo I chose is the best shot I could find from our photo agencies – you can see Tom and Sienna seated at a café, and if you look closely, you can spy a wine bottle and TWO glasses on their table. SCANDAL. Well, you guys thought it was a “scandal” when Uma Thurman was drinking wine while pregnant. How do you feel about it when it’s a former party girl like Sienna?
Former party girl Sienna Miller wasn’t about to let a little thing like pregnancy get in the way of enjoying a glass of bubbly. Out for a romantic afternoon with fiancé and dad-to-be Tom Sturridge in Portofino, Italy, the actress was in celebratory spirits as she sipped on a glass of vintage champers.
Of course, a friend insists that Sienna got her doctor’s permission before indulging: “Sienna is European and it’s common there for a pregnant woman to have a glass of wine or champagne,” the pal explains.
Plus, the friend adds that Sienna was careful only to have a few sips. “She’d never do anything to harm her unborn baby.”

Back when we were talking about Uma and preggo wine-drinking, I mentioned my thoughts – basically, I’ve always heard that the odd glass of wine is okay, especially when a woman is in her last trimester. Different doctors say different things, and there is a difference in how American women versus European women see the issue. I really don’t think Sienna is guzzling booze non-stop – I think she just has a glass of wine every now and then, and she probably doesn’t think it’s a big deal. But by all means, judge away. GET HER!
PS… If I had to stare at my baby-daddy’s scrunchie-bun all day, I would need a drink too.
