J. Lo's Maternity-Wear Philosophy: Glam Gowns, No Sweats!

With all the stars making the rounds for N.Y.C. Fashion Week, the fashion flock is getting even more jaded than usual. But despite the dazzling gowns at Marchesa, all eyes were definitely on nine-months-pregnant (with twins!) Jennifer Lopez, looking as gorgeous as any of the models in her own silky teal Marchesa dress that highlighted off her growing belly. Sure, she looks fantastic, but how’s pregnancy really treating her? “I’m feeling good,” the almost-due singer tells PEOPLE of her decision to check out the new collection along with husband Marc Anthony. “I haven’t gone out a lot for the past few months”, she admits, “but Marchesa has been incredibly good to me. They are just amazing!” And while most moms-to-be stick to comfort wear, the always-glam Jennifer says sweats are not an option. “People make fun of me because when I do have them over to my house I do have a dress on,” she laughs. “I don’t like the way the sweats look with the extra weight. I like to feel good about myself even at home.” And while the singer won’t be able to wear any of Marchesa’s red carpet confections anytime soon, she does have her eye on a few special looks. But, Lopez admits “Right now the best thing I can do for myself, for my body is to keep resting which is not easy for me. I like keeping busy and it is very hard because if they say ‘be off your feet for four hours a day’, I’m like ‘oh, God!’ It’s hard.” If she looks this good at nine months, we can’t wait to see her back in action!

I agree with Erin. She does not look like she is carrying twins. Wonder if she has a surrogate to carry the babies, and this is just a front?

I hope she is eating not that she is starving herself because of fear of gaining too much weight because she looks really small to be having twins and at nine months are feet are too swollen to be wearing high heel shoes!!!

I have twins myself and there is no way she is 9 months pregnant with twins, maybe 7-8 months pregnant. Most twins arrive at 37 weeks and if they don’t they induce you.
She looks beautiful as always.

I think the press must have it wrong — there is NO WAY JLO is 9 months preggers with twins. No way. I’m thinking she may be 6 or 7 mos.

I think the dress and shoes are probably the worst things I’ve ever seen her wear. And what a dumb pose.

I think she looks great for almost giving birth and in the last month of pregnancy to pull off ANY dress is pretty amazing. Ugly ir not! Kudos to J Lo and many Congrats on her babies.


She looks good, the color of the dress is nice on her. The angle of the pic is why she looks so small, because if you have seen her in other pictures at different angles she looks big, huge even. I wish her luck and God bless her and her family. Must be tough to walk in those shoes pregnant!

Truth on

There is no way she’s nine months pregnant with twins. 99% of twins aren’t carried to term and we’re suppose to believe that Mrs. Lopez is able to do so in heels. Compare here bump to other celebrities caring only one baby – it’s too small. I’m not buying it . . . .

I find it hard to believe she’s nine months. She looks too small.
