Here at Babe, we’re all about keeping it real, and this week, we’re looking back at the funny stuff, and the honest moments with a few of our favorite moms. Tune in as Taylor Giavasi, Carissa Alvarado, Cassie Ventura Fine, and Rocky Barnes share everything, from sagging boobs to sex drive (or lack thereof, TBH!). Because if you can’t talk about it with your girlfriends, did it even happen?
Honest, authentic, and fresh, social media star and fiancé to YouTuber Nash Grier is decidedly real. From her home in LA, Taylor talks about the emotional recovery she went through after having a miscarriage (before getting pregnant a month later). Plus, her decision to share the details of her pregnancy publicly and having an at-home water birth. @g1avasis
Expectations…”When I imagined pregnancy, I thought I would be this glowing goddess eating greens and doing yoga. HA! That couldn’t be further from the truth and was, in fact, the exact opposite!”
One half of the husband-and-wife musical Youtube sensation, Us The Duo, Carissa is as lovely and gracious, as she is easy on the eyes. Back when she was pregnant, we caught up with this mega-mama as she was about to go on tour at 9 months pregnant! We played dress-up, swoon’d over their epic love story, and shared plans to manage working while pregnant while on tour while. @carissaalvarado
Sex...“I wish I could say ‘hell ya!’, but my libido has been super low.”
Cassie Ventura Fine
Soulful, gorgeous (like beyond!) and warm, Cassie, recently became a mom. Here, this recording artist, model and founder of Ventura Records,, shares what it was like to get married while pregnant (hello designing a dress around your bump!), a dream for her daughter, what she is most nervous (and excited) when it comes to being a mom, plus her plans for her newly launched record label. In other words, the woman is the epitome of successful, and living the good life, with her oh-so-new hubbie, Waffles (the dog), and baby.. @cassie
Momming…”I don’t want to lose myself in becoming a mom. Of course, I will do anything for her, but I also want to remain true to myself.
Fashion star and social media darling, Rocky is refreshingly real. Here, this sparkling mama chats overcoming her fear of sacrificing her career to have a family, raising a boy as the roles of men (and women) shift, plus feeling empowered by other moms in the fashion industry, her bump style, spicy margaritas, and why she never read a pregnancy book. @rockybarnes
Work… “In my industry, you overhear people saying things like, “she’s a mom now,” as if she’s lost her sex appeal or youth.”
