Expectant mama Kristen Bell was spotted on a pregnant pedal in Los Feliz, Calif. on Friday (August 15). The glowing actress, 34, went for a bike ride before brunch at Stamp restaurant.
The Frozen star – who is already mom to daughter Lincoln, 15 months, with husband Dax Shepard — recently opened up about her second pregnancy.
“I gave up refined sugar a couple of months ago. And that keeps my cravings low,” she told Us. “I mean, I still crave food in general but I’m not like waking up with a starve, going, ‘I need dark chocolate!’”
As for any differences with her pregnancy this time around, the Veronica Mars star says it’s been “exactly the same.”
She added: “Maybe five percent harder because I chase a toddler, but at the same time, it keeps me active. But yeah, it’s been identical.”
As the search for a missing Marine wife nears the three-week mark, a witness now says he watched the pregnant Erin Corwin rendezvous and depart with another man from the site where her abandoned vehicle later turned up.
Michael Beasley tells San Diego, California, TV station CBS 8 that on the morning of Saturday, June 28, after Corwin left her at home in Twentynine Palms, reportedly for a solo day trip to Joshua Tree National Park, he saw her meet a man, exit and lock her blue Toyota, and then climb into the man’s red sedan.
“They were just sitting and chatting,” said Beasley. “If she wanted to get out of the car and say, ‘I don’t want to be in this car,’ she could have.”
The pair then drove off together in the man’s vehicle, he said.
“When I came back a half-hour later, just the [blue] car was sitting there,” said Beasley. “Next thing, I hear the weekend goes by and Monday morning the sheriffs are there looking for this girl because she ain’t home yet.”
Meanwhile, warrants made public this week reveal investigators sought permission to search two apartments on the Marine base that is home to Corwin, whose 20th birthday was Tuesday, and her husband, Marine Cpl. Jon Corwin.
The warrants also mention a 2013 blue Toyota sedan with California license plates, and a dark-colored Jeep Cherokee with Alaska license plates.
In each case, the otherwise identical documents indicate authorities are looking for items such as DNA and hair samples, latent prints, anything “soiled with bodily fluids,” and electronic devices, including computers.
While acknowledging “it’s an active investigation that, at some point, could turn into a criminal investigation,” Cindy Bachman, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, tells PEOPLE: “We haven’t located any solid evidence that has established this as a criminal investigation. We haven’t identified anyone as a suspect or a person of interest.”
“At this time,” she adds, “it’s a missing-person investigation and a search for a missing person.”
“We need to let the investigators continue to do what they’re doing,” she says.
The Chew star Daphne Oz covers the current issue of Mini magazine and opens up about her daughter Philomena, nearly 5 months, the best advice her father Dr. Oz gave her, and embracing her pregnant body.
On loving pregnancy: “I actually was the most confident I’ve ever been in my body while I was pregnant. I felt so powerful and free to flaunt the curves that we’re growing a little baby, so I wore a ton of body con and low boots. I figured out early on that wearing loose clothing often just makes you look bigger, so I tried to wear stuff that fit but that wasn’t tight or uncomfortable. Kimonos were a thing of mine for a while, as were pretty baby doll dresses, and of course great leggings and tops.”
On the best advice her dad gave her: “My dad was full of so much good advice. But I think the best kernel of wisdom came from his experience as a parent even more than a doctor. He reminded my husband, John, and I to take time to support each other and reconnect. Happy children are a product of happy parents.”
On losing the baby weight: “Now that Philo is here, I feel like I’m always eating on the run, trying to catch bites while she’s down for a nap or squirming in my lap. It’s a lot of one-handed foods or quick meals. But I am totally taking advantage of the beautiful summer weather for long walks [with my family]. And now that she’s a bit older and is sort of (fingers crossed!) getting a schedule going, I’m really looking forward to getting back into real workouts. Even if I just have 20 minutes, I’ll pull up a workout on my computer — I’ve done everything from the Insanity routines to Ballet Beautiful sets. I also have found yoga to be really helpful for dealing with back pain and muscle tension — I’m a big fan of Steve Ross.”
