When it comes to dressing your bump there’s no one-size-fits-all approach – and these ladies have proved that more than ever. We’ve got everything from Frankie Bridge’s trouser suit, above, to Suzanne Shaw’s bodycon and Sophie Ellis Bextor’s floaty dress on the red carpet for Lorraine’s Highstreet Fashion Awards on the following pages.
But lets start with Frankie. The Saturdays singer wore black flared jeans, a loose-fitting white top and a smart black blazer. The 26-year-old wore one side of her short hair in a plait for the snazzy event.
The mum-of-1 has had a difficult pregnancy so far – with extreme morning sickness meaning she had to pull out of the Strictly Come Dancing live tour. And now she’s suffering from insomnia and stomach cramps. “I kept waking up at 2am and I just couldn’t get back to sleep, which meant I was really tired looking after Parker and going to work,” she wrote in her OK! magazine column. “The stomach cramps have made me feel quite uncomfortable but they’re completely normal during pregnancy – it’s another reassuring sign that my baby is getting bigger!”
Frankie has also been to the dentist recently and had two wisdom teeth removed. “I hate the dentist’s and because they could only take two of my teeth out, I have to wait until after the new baby is born to have the others removed!”

Suzanne Shaw’s bodycon dress
The ex-Hear’Say singer went all out for the event wearing a blue bodycon dress with towering nude heels and a feathery clutch bag – we hope she’s got some ballet flats stuffed in there for later on in the evening!
The low-cut, backless dress hugged every curve and showed off Suzanne’s bump. The 33-year-old is pregnant with her second child – her first with fiancé Sam Greenfield. She’s already mum to 10-year-old Corey from her relationship with Darren Day.
Sophie Ellis Bextor’s voluminous dress
Sophie Ellis Bextor might be pregnant with her fourth child – but we suspect her bump isn’t quite as big as this loose green dress would suggest. Just look at her on the right a couple of weeks ago – just goes to show what a difference a nipped-in waist can make. Sophie is already mum to three boys, Sonny, 11, Kit, 6, and Ray, 3, with The Feeling guitarist Richard Jones.
