Just a few hours after the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star slammed her haters with a nude pregnancy photo, Rivera – who is constantly compared to her look-alike Kardashian – just released her own naked baby bump pics.
In an interview with Yahoo! Style, the mama-to-be opens up about what it’s like to be pregnant and famous.
“Being in the public eye when you’re pregnant is really, really hard,” she says. “People can be so mean on the Internet, it’s insane. Pregnancy is such a beautiful time to me, and I feel like you should embrace your body in whatever stage it’s in. So it’s kind of hard being an actress, being a celebrity, and having people scrutinize how you physically look, and just saying the craziest things.”
Thus, the Glee alum definitely did her best to stay healthy throughout her pregnancy.
“I worked out a lot, up until probably the end of my second trimester, when things got a little more difficult,” she reveals. “I started out doing pilates, but you can only do that for so long because of the ab workouts. So I had to stop that, and then I was doing prenatal yoga a lot, and then quit that… and then I moved on to the gym, and now I’m just doing the elliptical now and then.”
As for as her diet? “I’ve been really conscious to make sure that, nutritionally, I’m giving the baby everything that it needs: vegetables and vitamins and all sorts of stuff. I’ve found, like, the best supplements and all of that,” she says. “But I definitely have my vices, and it’s nice to be able to indulge in them for once. I’m paying the price, but it’s nice!”
Moving forward, Rivera already has a beauty and health plan set forth for after she gives birth.
“I have an entire post-baby plan that I wrote out and continue to look at every day!” she explains. “I definitely need a new hair style — can’t wait for that, my hair has just been so blah — and the workout regimen is gonna be pretty serious. I love beauty products and getting my hair and makeup done — all that stuff, I incorporate into my daily life when I’m not pregnant. But while I’ve been pregnant, I really just gave up! I was like, ‘There’s no time and no point right now… there’s just no point!’ So I’m just gonna hit restart after, and I think that’ll be fun. It’ll be like an extreme makeover.”
Rivera is likely due sometime in September.
