Vanessa Lachey On Baby Weight: I Gained 65 Pounds While Pregnant With Camden

Want to know how much weight Vanessa Lachey gained during her pregnancy? The Wipeout opened up about her weight gain (and loss) today saying that she put on 65 pounds while she was pregnant with her son Camden.

Lachey sat down on HuffPo Live today to talk about how she’s been working on getting back into bikini shape after her pregnancy. Lachey said that she isn’t stressing out too much about her body and gave some advice to new moms.

Lachey said: “I gained, I think, 65 pounds when I was pregnant … And I will say to moms out there, ‘Don’t stress about losing it. It will happen when it happens.’ Cam’s 9 months, so it’s been a minute, and we’re working, and we’re traveling, and it’s just about maintaining a happy, healthy lifestyle, not obsessing about it.”

Lachey said that a lot of people today want to “get skinny quick” but the 32-year-old television host doesn’t put a lot of faith into fad diets.

The Wipeout host said: “I think that’s one thing I would like to convey to moms everywhere. It’s not about this ‘get skinny quick’ diet or these fads. Just enjoy time being a mom. You’ve just had this wonderful, magical moment, and you shouldn’t be stressing about that kind of stuff.”

Lachey was never shy about gaining weight during her pregnancy. She encouraged other women to share their baby photos and in return the actress posted a few pregnant bikini pics onto Twitter.


Camden is only 9-months-old at the moment but Lachey is almost ready to try for baby no.2 with her husband Nick.

Lachey said: “We’re married, and I believe we’ve established a great foundation as a couple and now as parents so when two and three and maybe four roll around, we’ll be ready for them.”
