While celebrity quotes don’t usually draw my attention, I recently glossed over a page of them that were really beautiful and thought-provoking when it comes to what being pregnant means.
5 Inspiring Celebrity Quotes About Pregnancy (And then Some)
I’m sure we all know more quotes from Mom’s who aren’t celebrities. Or little blurbs from our Grandmothers and Mothers about what to expect, what to fear and what we’ll feel. But as pregnancy also tends to be very different for each woman, not everyone will identify with any given feeling about their pregnancy. Let’s see what a few popular ladies we all know think.
“[Pregnancy] makes me feel like a woman. It makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason…To have a little life inside you is amazing.” – Angelina Jolie

Not all delightful quotes are to be found in celebrity moms or ladies in our own bloodline. There are quite a few interesting, if not inspiring, quotes for whom the author is still unknown.
