Celebrity tales from the changing mat

Our favourite nappy-changing confessions from famous mums and dads


Giuliana Rancic

E! News presenter and reality star Giuliana Rancic wants to preserve every precious memory of newborn baby Edward Duke – including his toilet habits!


“This is so gross, but I love when he poops. They make these noises and I’m always like, ‘Bill, here he goes. Tape this, tape this!’ And he’s like, ‘Must we tape this?’, She admitted to People magazine.

“It’s such a good feeling because it shows that he’s healthy and he’s regular and things are looking good.”


Beyoncé and Jay-Z

They may be music royalty with a luxurious lifestyle to match, but that doesn’t mean Beyonce and husband Jay-Z are too good to get down and dirty with baby Blue Ivy’s nappys.

Speaking to US talk show host Anderson Cooper, the R&B diva divulged her husband’s diaper duty dedication saying , “Actually, [Jay-Z] is very good. We both [change diapers].

“I love changing diapers, I love it. I love every moment of it, it’s so beautiful. I love it all.’


Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr

New parents squabbling over whose turn it is to change a smelly nappy is nothing unusual, but for too-perfect-to-be-true couple Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, the argument is over who gets to do the deed for baby Flynn.

Speaking to Fabulous magazine about her hands-on husband, Miranda recently exclaimed, “It’s wonderful, Orlando’s so hands-on. He likes to get in there and do as much as he can. I’m very lucky. We love it – now we argue about who’s changing the diaper!”


Nick Lachey

Despite being a first time dad to newborn son Camden, former boy band frontman and reality star Nick Lachey has been in training for fatherhood for a while now – and is already a dab hand at changing nappies.

“I had a little training with the niece and nephew with diaper duty, and yeah, I’ve got no problem changing diapers” He told People magazine. “It makes for good bonding moments with me and the little guy.”
