Rachel Zoe is seven months pregnant (!) and she’s having a boy


Rachel Zoe’s pregnancy was “confirmed” several months ago, although the only physical sign of pregnancy is a very, very small “bump”. Well, guess how far along Rachel is? SEVEN MONTHS. Seriously. That’s what she says in a new interview. That poor baby is just surviving on air, a few bites of granola, Slim Fast and Red Bull, and Chanel fumes. Well, Rachel has just announced that her dreams of a little Zoe baby girl are over – she’s expecting a boy. I say this in all seriousness, I really hope the boy is gay. It would be a shame to waste all that vintage.

Bananas, it’s a boy! Pregnant celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe has finally confirmed the gender of her baby. In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, she lets a telling pronoun slip. Patting her stomach, Zoe, 39, says, “It all depends on his arrival.”

The article then details how her husband of 12 years Rodger Berman kisses her belly and declares “It’s a little boy.”

The Rachel Zoe Project star also reveals that she’s seven months along — and will be just one month away from giving birth when she dresses celeb clients like Anne Hathaway and other A-listers for the Oscars.

Any chance the notoriously hard-working fashionista can take it down a notch as she waits to give birth? “I’ve been asked to slow down,” she tells WWD. “But to be totally honest, it’s kind of next to impossible when you’re planning your show and launching your collection, and in the middle of award season.”

Shockingly, the clotheshorse hasn’t started picking up togs for her son. “I’m also Jewish,” she explains. “So I’m a little superstitious. I’ve been sent a lot of gifts and things and my team just hides them.”

Wouldn’t it be funny if she went into labor just days before the Oscars? I mean, I DIE. LITERALLY. She would actually have to delegate, and the bitch hates to delegate.

By the way… I just have to say again: SEVEN MONTHS?!? Jesus. I can’t believe how little she is – she’s been carrying SO small. It’s insane.

UPDATE: Here’s today’s cover of WWD. Seven months. LITERALLY.

    I man i know she’ tiny but that is wrong.

    see here is one i could see having a surrogate. so she doesn’t ruin that tiny little fame of hers with a baby.

  2. Sara says:

    I am so happy these two are having a baby!

  3. lachica says:

    “I really hope the boy is gay. It would be a shame to waste all that vintage.”

    best line of the day. LOL!

    i don’t think she’s that small, it depends on the angle at which she is being shot. and she is also careful to wear draping black which minimizes. yeah she’s tiny but it seems like a low normal pregnancy to me. the baby grows the most in the last trimester remember.

  4. samihami says:

    If she is very fit and has tight ab muscles it’s not surprising that she carries small. I’ve known a few women who work out a lot and when they became pregnant, you could barely tell all the way up to their delivery dates. And their kids were born with healthy weights.

  5. Minx2 says:

    Seven months? Looks like she just ate a larger dinner! Sure, bigger women generally don’t show until late but she’s sooo tiny, it’s weird that she didn’t put on more weight. Typically very skinny women put on more weight than the recommended 24 lbs. Think Kate Hudson. But then RZ probably is a control freak, even during her pregnancy.

  6. guesty says:

    amazingly tiny.

  7. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Love Rachel. LOL I am not surprised her baby bump is tiny being so tiny herself. I am sure Roger is thrilled she is having a boy.

  8. orion70 says:

    Her face looks much better, but I agree, she doesn’t look 7 months along. Maybe she’ll “pop” out at some point?

  9. Oi says:

    Maybe she’ll get bigger suddenly? I hope the baby is ok. And I want him to be the QB for USC. Just to see what she does.

  10. Celine says:

    I was also that tiny when I was 7 months pregnant – actually most people didn’t really notice I was pregnant at all until something like 8,5 months. I was underweight to start with and ate very healthily during the whole pregnancy and exercised almost like I normally do, but I was doing both of those things in moderation, without risking the baby’s health or my own.

    Anyway, Rachel Zoe’s been widely speculated to have eating disorder – if she still indeed does, THAT could put herself and the baby at risk. But just because she has a small bump, doesn’t mean the pregnancy could be going perfectly fine and healthily.

  11. Mollyb says:

    I have a very thin friend who was that tiny at seven months. In fact, even at full term she never looked more than six months pregnant. Her daughter was born at a very healthy 7 lbs. I was big as a house and my daughter was 5 and a half lbs. The size of the bump doesn’t mean a whole lot.

  12. Novaraen says:

    She is scary small for 7 months.

  13. GradStudentEatingHotPockets says:

    It would LITERALLY be bananas if she was in labor during the oscars. LIke, literally, I’d die. What would Brad do? Would he be at her side during the delivery or would he be dressing the celebs?

    But on a more serious note…do you think she’d drink her starbucks while in labor? or maybe Kate Hudson will appear and sing some more Steve Nicks?

  14. Wif says:

    Everybody’s different.

  15. daisydoodle says:

    @samihami, she doesn’t have tight abs, she’s anorexic…My husband’s partner has an anorexic wife, I mean really anorexic and she only gained 7lbs during her one pregnancy and he thought I was a big fat hog for gaining 25lbs. I had normal births and lost it all, but for the anorexic wife, the child she birthed has major learning problems and I just wonder if her low weight gain had something to do with that? just a thought….

  16. kanderson says:

    Hm, that is soooo small. Typically, the shorter and thinner you are, the more you tend to show. I mean, the baby has to go SOMEWHERE! I’m 5’4 and started off my current pregnancy at a healthy but thin weight, and I popped SO early – – at around 13 or 14 weeks. There just wasn’t a lot of extra space in my body, so the baby bump pushed its way out right away. To be so small, and to have such a small bump…I don’t know. I know every pregnancy is different, but that’s weird for 7 months.

  17. kanderson says:

    I also don’t like that you can still sort of see her breastbone in that top picture. The recommended weight gain for pregnancy is around 25 pounds, and Rachel looks like she hasn’t even gained 10. That freaks me out for her baby a bit.

  18. sickofit says:

    Eating disorder never gets well along with a child to be born.
    I really hope shes been eating something during the last few months.
    as said before this is going to be harmful for the kid otherwise.
    but she prob doesnt care anyway 🙁

  19. Courtney says:

    Uh if she was of normal weight before conceiving than she’s supposed to gain 25-35lbs during pregnancy. but if she’s had a miscarriage previously than there’s scar tissue which makes her carry differently. it was obvious she’s having a boy her face didn’t swell up as much as Amy Adams’s did when she was expecting her daughter

  20. Sadie says:

    The picture on top was taken on November 16th 2010 at the Annual Lupus LA Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon, so that bump is 2 months old! That bump seems quite normal for a 5 month pregnancy.
    You should have found a more recent picture to prove your point.

  21. Nicole says:

    Meh, I was neither anorexic nor did I have super tight abs, and I carried that small. Even at 7-8 months, people would be very nervous to ask if I was pregnant and when I delivered (at full term)I looked like I was only in my second trimester, so it seems kinda silly to me to judge another person’s baby bump. In my case, I carried super high, which sucked. I constantly heard how lucky I was to stay so small (even though I gained 35 lbs!!) but the truth was, the baby was pressing into my organs so much that I couldn’t breathe, couldn’t eat more than a few bites at a time, had constant heartburn and extreme back pain, and couldn’t bend over without the risk of throwing up. I woulda LOVED to pop out a little more and have a bit more room for everything!! I guess when the baby pops out, we’ll find out just how well fed he was.

  22. merry says:

    Where? I mean it, where IS the baby right now? It can’t be in her belly.

  23. bagladey says:

    I had a small belly like that when I was seven months pregnant.

  24. Obvious says:

    @Courtney what does Amy Adams face have to do with anything? one of my best friends just had a daughter and minus the bump you couldn’t tell she was pregnant, her face didn’t swell. But her sister’s did when she was expecting a boy. it depends on the person, not the sex of the child.

  25. Kimble says:

    She looks really good in the photo with Rodger!

  26. Isabel says:

    Some people just carry small, which is totally fine and normal. I have no idea what that’s like, because people start asking me if I’m having twins by 6 months. Which I am right now with #2. Bitches.

    ANYWAY…it’s a different situation with Rachel because her eating disorders have been so well documented and she’s been so incredibly abusive to her own body. It’s impossible not to assume that she didn’t simply drop those habits because of pregnancy. Unfortunately, that’s not the way disorders work. Otherwise, we’d never see a preggo smoke, do drugs, drink to excess, etc. I worry about that poor kid. I can only assume that with the help of doctors and her hubby, she’s doing her best at keeping the baby healthy. But you never know.

  27. Roma says:

    Maybe all the coke use has carved out a hole in her stomach and the baby is just chillin on a Fendi chaise in there?

  28. Bodhi says:

    Thank you obvious, I was about to say the same thing. The whole idea that people can tell what the baby is by how you are carrying it is total crap.

  29. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I hope that baby pops out her belly soon… and she gets HUGE!!

    Otherwise, the baby is probably going to be 4 lbs when he’s born.

    That is just wrong.

  30. Macheath says:

    I just can’t imagine her having sex. She seems so…asexual. Anyway, congrats to her and the turkey baster…I mean husband.

  31. original kate says:

    she’s 39?! my goodness, she looks closer to 50.

  32. minnie says:

    i think she has to have an eating disorder. she has the bulemia “chipmunk cheeks” and bloodshot eyes, and is obviously a bag of bones. unfortunately, it reeks HAVOC on an unborn baby.

    my husband’s ex-wife has a terrible eating disorder– anorexia and buliema. she basically starves herself all day, then binges and purges for hours on end late at night. anyhow, she of course continued this horrible behavior through the pregnancy, and had so many complications. she had to go to the hospital to be monitored every day, and eventually they delivered the baby early because she was safer outside the womb (and premature) than in it. she was under 5 lbs, went to the NICU and was failure to thrive the first 4 months of life.

    that little baby, who is now my eight year old step-daughter (thank god she lives with us and has limited contact with her “mom”), has many developmental delays even to this day. she has ADHD, coordination disorders, a low IQ, and she is off the charts small for her age. as i said, she is 8, is repeating the 2nd grade, and is still far smaller than the rest of her younger classmates. the worst part is that her sister– my daughter- is only 4 years old and already better at skiing, bike riding, school, art, etc than her sister who is 4 years older. it makes me sick to think that this was all avoidable, and that my step daughter will always struggle with things– school work, sports, focusing– that come easily to most people.

    obviously i’m passionate about this subject because of my own sad experience with anorexics/buliemics getting pregnant. its just so sad when a mother can’t get her health together for their child.

    anyhow, zoe looks almost identical to my husband’s ex– body shape/ height, facial features. its uncanny what the sickness does to a person’s face.

  33. Jasmin says:

    I’m just surprised that she was actually able to get pregnant. She continually looks like she’s too skinny to have periods. But…. well. I guess she proved me wrong.

  34. Arianna says:

    @ Roma

    best comment.

  35. Kim says:

    What does Jewish have to do with superstitious?! She is funny =)
    Congrats to her and her hubbie.

    I do wish she would make her pregnancy more of a priority and slow down. I know she has work & bills but she could afford to cut back a little.

    Rachel trust a mother – it goes by so fast. Slow down and live in/enjoy these moments. .

  36. Majosha says:

    @Courtney: I have two boys, and my face swelled up like a balloon during each pregnancy. I also had some lady at the Oshkosh outlet swear I was going to have a girl because I was “carrying high” or whatever and that was obviously BS, too. The fact is, there’s no way to know for sure until the ultrasound, or if you choose to wait, the little one makes his/her grand entrance.

  37. Ron says:

    I had the displeasure of dealing with her directly years ago. She is a horrible person. I don’t see how someone who is completely self obsessed can possibly be any kind of parent. Even in the womb it’s starting out poorly for this kid. It’s gay dad Rodger is it’s only hope.

  38. Mizz Tickles says:

    I wonder if Rachel Zoe got pregnant because she is going into peri menopause and apparently during that time the body releases more eggs in the last ditch attempt to get fertilized? And that is such a sad story Minnie. It is good that she has the love and support of a family.

  39. TeeTee says:

    Wowwwww, I hope her baby is ok and he is healthy.

  40. Disco says:

    I of course, did NOT have this problem when I was pregnant. BUT…a friend of mine just had her baby and I saw her 3 days before she gave birth and could’ve sworn she was 4 months along. And she gave birth to a perfectly healthy 8lb boy.

  41. Lori says:

    I’m going to come out and say it — pillow baby.

  42. Aries_Mira says:

    Women all carry and show differently when they are pregnant – through all trimesters. As long as Zoe and babe are healthy, that’s all that matters, right?

  43. Anne de Vries says:

    good thing she isn’t having a girl – poor child would have an eating disorder for sure..

  44. Camille says:

    Not all pregnant women have MASSIVE baby bumps 🙄 . I didn’t, strangers mostly had no idea I was even pregnant. And I didn’t mind at all (no stretch marks either lol). Every woman is different when it comes to pregnancy.

    Also I think its great she’s having a boy, it will give her a whole new life experience, especially if he’s a full on ‘macho/butch’-straight boy. I don’t get the big deal about certain celebs *having to have girls*. There is nothing wrong with a boy! And having a healthy baby should be all that matters anyway. Geez!

  45. Xx says:

    Good for her. I cant wait for her collection to come out. Hope I can afford some of it.

  46. Crash2GO2 says:

    Goodness, I can still count all her breast bones. The fact of the matter is, if you are seriously underweight (which she was when she got pregnant) she would have been ordered by the doctor to gain a great deal more than the usual 25 to 35 lbs. And she clearly hasn’t. But babies are survivors, and take everything from the mother, stripping her bare if need be. I hope she at least ate sufficiently to support the growth of the baby and took her prenatals. The baby will likely be fine, but this has got to be incredibly tough on her poor body.

    @minnie: Yes, very said story indeed, but I have to take issue with this statement of yours: ” its just so sad when a mother can’t get her health together for their child.”

    Would you expect a schizophrenic to ‘get her (mental) health together’ for her child? Anorexia is a mental disorder – very VERY recalcitrant to treatment. It is not a choice women make – in the beginning perhaps it is, but by the time the disease is well established, it has changed the brain chemistry forever.

  47. GrnMtGirl says:

    I like Rodger and I’m so happy that he will finally get the baby he’s been wanting so badly.

    Rachel is such a work-a-holic…I hope that she will be able to slow down just a little bit and enjoy her little boy.

  48. keirelle says:

    @Minnie: Mothers with anorexia and other eating disorders literally can NOT help what they are doing. You say they should ‘just get their health together for their baby’ but anorexia is not just something you can snap out of. It just doesn’t work like that and before you go assuming it should be that easy, perhaps you should educate yourself on the disorder. Much like any mental illness, it is not something one chooses to do. Trust me. I know from experience both myself and from friends.

  49. dovesgate says:

    I only gained 8lbs during my first pregnancy – you couldn’t tell I was pregnant until my 8th month. Even the day before I had her, I still looked like I was in my second trimester.

    Obviously pregnancy agrees with this woman. I’ve never seen her look so fresh faced and pretty!

  50. Isa says:

    Posh Spice only gained about 14 lbs with her first pregnancy.

    Maybe severe morning sickness? A woman I know gained no weight because she lost so much with it that it was an effort just to get back to her normal weight!

  51. Dorrie says:

    Anorexia is not a choice, but pregnancy is. And anorexics are not all the same -some can and do make the choice to eat well for the baby. Even when they are not able to make that choice for themselves alone. If you are too disordered to protect your baby’s health, then don’t get pregnant.

  52. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Dorrie: “If you are too disordered to protect your baby’s health, then don’t get pregnant.”

    Uh…if you are too disordered to protect your health or a babies health, you are probably too disordered to use birth control effectively.

  53. Minnie says:

    When I said it’s sad when a mother “get it together for the sake of their child” I didn’t mean “get over their eating disorder” or “just stop doing it”. Obviously I DO have a great deal of experience with this and while I agree it’s not a simple “just get better” solution, a mother can choose to listen to her dr, accept the IV nourishment that her dr and partner are begging her to take, and generally try as hard as she can — with a lot of professional support (which this person had)– to minimize the damage.

    Re: schizophrenia comparison- I liken an anorexic mother taking care of herself during pregnancy to a schizophrenic mother taking her meds and attending all her dr/ psychiatrist appointments. Basically- making an effort to do the best she CAN. Not necessarily eat like a non-anorexic.
    And Doreen- I agree with you and that’s what I meant- many arorexics DO make the choice to follow their dr advice and eat enough to sustain a health pregnancy. Not eat like someone without the disorder, but eat just enough to protect the baby.

    Crash- I can’t believe you’re actually offended that I said this. It IS a choice: alcoholics/ drug attics can go to AA, use sober support systems, take anti- drinking meds like Anibuse, check into rehad, etc. They can CHOOSE to take the neccesay steps to fight (not cure or stop) their disease and its impact on their unborn children. The same goes for people sick with the disease of anorexia. Or diabetes, for that matter- take your insulin, eat the foods your body needs to minimize the effects of your diabetes. Diseases like these may not be a choice, but the choice to take care of yourself during pregnancy and to make use of the amazing resources at your disposal is. And just like with all addictions, you have to WANT to get better. There IS a willpower component in fighting the disease you have.

    In this instance, the mom had been to the
    best treatment center in the world literally three
    90-day stints in the 4 years before the
    pregnancy. She didn’t want to get better. She didn’t want to help herself. She thrived on the drama of always needing to be “saved” and always been the center of attention and in need. And her daughter paid the price. Personally, I’m OFFENDED for the sake of the unborn child, who never had a choice of womb to be carried in. She has suffered so much more than her mother ever has. And she truly didn’t have a choice in her fate. Her mom had some degree of choice.

  54. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Minnie: As far as alcoholism is concerned, yes, I agree with you that it is a choice. I do not agree with the disease model of alcoholism as there is too much scientific evidence out there to refute it.

    But as far as mental illnesses to go, when one is mentally ill, they also lose their ability to make reasonable decisions (choices). You simply cannot compare the two IMO.

  55. Jag says:

    Don’t just worry for this baby now, but after he’s born, too. Eating disorders can run in families because the parent passes down the bad body image, and all that goes with doing that to oneself. I hope that she gets the help she needs, and that she doesn’t affect her son, too.

  56. EE says:

    I just watched an old episode of her show when she visits the doctor and she refused to take a blood test. My guess is she wanted to take the test a week later after she could make sure some drugs were out of her system. I believe she was probably using some kind of drugs to stay thin. I’m glad to see she is far along in the pregnancy, hopefully those days are behind her.

  57. boat says:

    I was 4lbs 14oz when I was born, and I turned out fine. My mother was under a lot of stress during most of her pregnancy. Just because a baby is born with a low birth weight doesn’t mean it is going to have developmental issues.

  58. Really good weblog, keep me from checking it, I will be seriously interested to know more about it.

  59. pppp says:

    ummm, did you guys see what Rachel had for breakfast on the first episode of season 4? Sparkling water with a splash of cranberry. what do you guys think, is that a normal breakfast for someone 6 months pregnant? I thought her man was making the cereal for her, but nope, it was for him, and Rachel got the water. Is that strange behavior? if not, what is it?
