Jennifer Lopez to wear designer delivery gown when she gives birth


I’m Not Obsessed has just revealled what Jennifer Lopez is planning to wear to the delivery room when she gives birth any day now: a designer hospital gown from Dear Johnnies.

Now, because the world of pregnancy and childbirth is an alien one to The Fashion Police. we are intrigued by this. People actually care what they look like while they’re giving birth? For real? We had no idea. And if all the made-for-TV movies we’ve seen are anything to go by, it’s a kind of bloody, sweaty, body-fluidy kind of experience, so buying a designer hospital gown sounded a bit like trowelling on makeup to go to the gym to us. But then again, who knows: maybe she just thinks she’ll be more comfortable in her own clothes? When we think of it like that, it actually seems a lot more understandable…

One of Jen’s delivery gowns costs $65. Worth it, do you think?

    I was concerned about my attire too before I went into labour… thinking about what I was going to wear. When that pain hit however, those cares went flying thru the window! I didn’t care how, who, what, where. hehehe. I don’t blame her for wanting some semblance of dignity and style going in. I’m sure she won’t care once it gets going though 🙂

    I cared what I would look like in the delivery room as well. Seriously — I didn’t want those pictures to come back and haunt me for the rest of my life. I certainly didn’t want to look at them and think “why didn’t I wear makeup”? So, in fact, I did just that. After my epidural I put on makeup so that when it was time I would be prepared. The pain wasn’t bad enough to use as an excuse, and everyone comments on how nice I looked in the delivery room!

    Of course we care what we look like!
    I bought a gown for labour as well – except mine was a lovely checked maternity nighty from topshop, which I matched with my Agent Provocateur leopard print maternity bra.
    I thought the whole look was very Gwen Stefani.
    Except my lazy son wouldn’t come out and I had a c-section. 😀 I didn’t wear any make-up in hospital and my advice to anyone going in now is to remember it’ll be the most photographed few days of their lives!!

    I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Those dearjohnnies are sooooo 2 years ago! I’m surprised JLO’s stylist didn’t direct her to They are the latest. I’m sure we’ll see Gwen Stefani in one soon!
