From what's happening in maternity fashion to what's happening in the world of motherhood. Here's where you can get updates info and insights - all straight from Rosie!
So the old cat is out of the bag (nasty phrase by the way, but after being dragged back through the fertility roller coaster I can’t think of another): now that Pregnant in Heels has premiered on Bravo, it is now known that I am not in fact a fertile Myrtle, despite having a career built on all things conception and baby-related!
As you can imagine this time of my life is both very exciting (and nerve-racking) on a personal level and a professional one. Everything is going at a thousand miles an hour and as I was pouring through my hundreds of emails that came in this morning I was bowled over by what an amazing team of people work at Rosie Pope Maternity and MomPrep.
J.R. and I are headed to a Baby Einstein event hosted by Kelly Rutherford. Some much needed time with my little one and a ton of fun on this very chilly day.
I feel so lucky to have had the press coverage I've had leading up to the premier on April 5 of my show on Bravo Pregnant in Heels.
