Tamara Ecclestone Pregnancy Secrets


Tamara Ecclestone debuted her baby bump in HELLO! Magazine this week, with an iconic shoot.

View on her ‘Demi‘ Style photo shoot HERE

Heiress Tamara is thought to be due late spring early summer. The 29-year-old spilled her pregnancy secrets in an exclusive interview with the celebrity magazine.

“During my pregnancy, it’s been my favourite thing to come home at whatever time of the day and change into my PJs Says Tamara.


So with an unlimited bank account and access to the most exclusive boutiques, you would think Tamara would have an endless wardrobe dedicated to her growing bump. Think again…

“I haven’t bought any maternity clothes, I just wear my stretchy garments or buy the next size up. Ive been lucky because I’ve not grown that big. All my rings still fit and I can wear my heels. Adds the Formula One Heiress.

The ‘Demi’


A pregnant Tamara Ecclestone features this week in Hello! Magazine, looking fabulous, mirroring the iconic pregnant photo shoot that has been nicknamed the ‘Demi’


The ‘Demi’ originates back to August 1991, when the Hollywood actress Demi Moore posed nude at seven months pregnant on the cover on Vanity Fair Magazine.

Since the cover was released, several celebrities have joined Demi Moore and also posed on magazine covers in their later stages of pregnancy. From Claudia Schiffer to Britney Spears, these blooming celebrities have all stripped off and done a ‘Demi’ making the original cover one of the most highly regarded magazine covers of all time.

Check out some of the best ‘Demi’ Covers below:

Bumping Painting…



Elsa Pataky AKA Thor actor Chris Hemsworth model wife, has taken bump painting to whole new level this week. Choosing to have a lifeguard ring (rope included) onto her twin bump??!! ODD!

Anyway, Having looked into this bump painting business it seems to be the shizzle, and Elsa isn’t the only celebrity partaking in a bit of bump painting. From Mariah Carey to Imogen Thomas celebrities all over seem to be getting a bit paint happy 🙂

Take a look at some painted bumps I’ve found on my internet travels below.
