Daphne Oz Shares Selfie of Her Baby Bump

By now almost every fan of The Chew knows that Daphne Oz, 31, is expecting her third child any day now. Daphne Nur Oz and her husband, John Jovanovic, decided to share the latest baby-bump pic, at 38 weeks no less, on Instagram. Though the couple has not yet decided on a name for the newest addition to their family, the baby will join older siblings Philo and John-John as the tiniest member of the trio. Headlines proclaiming that “Daphne Oz shows off 38-week baby bump in selfie” showed up online and in print media early this week.

🍯✨well…we are very close now. 193lbs (so my doctor tells me – i don’t own a scale). definitively not all baby. taking this picture last night, it was just going to be for our family – i have collages of each baby growing in my belly and try to write myself little reminders of what it felt like to know their movements and the excitement of holding them inside me before I got to know the actual people that would emerge. but i decided to share it with all of you because the female body is worth so much more than objectification, scrutiny, comparison, hatred…we do so much in this skin. we all have complex relationships with the history of how we get comfortable living in and owning it. mine has been a long, winding journey forward and back and forward again. and then there are moments like this that are a perfect duality: heavy and light, exhausted and exhilarated, unrecognizable and yet distinctly me (plus someone else). these last few weeks of pregnancy have gone so fast and slow and it got me thinking about a lot. i feel like you guys think these thoughts too. BIG LOVE!!❤️

The 31-year-old commentator, nutrition author and frequent face on TV discussion programs noted “… we are very close now,” after sharing the touching photo with her Instagram followers early this week. Even though her physician logged her weight at 193 pounds, the svelte nutrition guru was quick to add that she and her husband do not have a scale in their home.

The photo was originally intended for “family sharing” only but Oz eventually sent it out to a much wider audience due to her beliefs about combating negative concepts of the female body. Her father, noted TV doctor Mehmet Oz, has a viewership of millions for his daily informational show that touches on virtually all aspects of health and nutrition. Daphne grew up in an atmosphere where eating and nutrition were of key importance in life.

The intrepid media personality already has complete collages of her other two children as they advanced along the growth cycle inside her body, recently noting that she kept a pregnancy diary each time, in which notations were made about how all stages of growth felt and what her impressions were as the child got ready for the big day.

Calling her new family a “party of 5,” the eldest child of Dr. Oz pointed out that she and her husband, John, were delighted to learn of the pregnancy and went on to mention that the new child will be a girl. That means the family of five will consist of two males and three females altogether.

Their daughter Philo is already 3 years old, while John-John is just approaching his second birthday. Philo’s full name is Philomena Bijou and John-John’s is Jovan Jr.

Daphne Oz is a sought-after speaker on topics ranging from healthcare to lifestyle and has already chalked up some major gigs on her resume by appearing at Maria Shriver’s “Governor’s Women’s Conference” and at the prestigious Aspen Institute’s wellness forum in 2009.

In addition to those activities, Oz is the face of non-profit HealthCorps, an organization that helps young people as they struggle with learning about exercise, nutrition, and stress. HealthCorps programs are in place all over the U.S., currently taking place in more than 50 schools.

The happy couple has been married since August of 2010, having met in college at Princeton. After a civil ceremony initially, John and Daphne opted for two religious ceremonies, one of which was in a church and the other in the private home of Daphne’s grandparents.

Princeton grad and best-selling nutrition author, the TV host celeb’s Instagram pic of her 38-week bump went viral the minute it entered the cyberspace stream.

Avatar star Zoe Saldana and her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego-Saldana, welcomed their twin sons – Cy and Bowie — on Nov. 27, 2014.

The Star Trek actress has opened up about delivering the twins prematurely via emergency C-section.

“The boys came at 32 weeks,” Saldana shared. “They found protein in my urine; my platelets crashed. I didn’t qualify for an epidural, so I delivered under general anesthetic. I didn’t even meet them until a day later.”

After their birth, the twins spent time in the NICU.

“Looking back, I think the boys were 3 or 4 months old, and one morning I woke up with just this flood of emotions,” said the actress. “[My husband] had them, too, and we were able to have our deconstruction session in the bathroom while they were napping, to say to each other, ‘Holy s—, did we come close to it all changing forever?’ We allowed ourselves to have a moment of ‘poor us.’ And that was it. Then somebody cried, and it was ‘Got to go!’ ”

Lopez, 48, has opened up about co-parenting the twins with her ex.

“When it comes to work, I never get tired. But with personal failures, I have thought, ‘This is too hard.’ When my marriage ended, it was not easy to find forgiveness,” J.Lo admitted. “It wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for, and it would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment, and anger. But Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do.”

We cannot wait to meet Hillary Scott‘s baby girls!

In August, the Need You Now hitmaker announced her pregnancy news.

“God has answered our family’s countless prayers! Our family is growing … Chris, Eisele, and I wanted to share our DOUBLE portion of joy with you all!” she wrote. “Chris nor I have any family history of twins that we can find and are just resting in the profound gift this truly is.”

The following month, the soulful singer revealed the gender of her twins.

“We are overjoyed to be having TWO more girls!” Scott captioned an image of three matching pink tutus and strappy shoes.

Double the congratulations are in order for Shaun T and Scott Blokker.

The Beachbody celebrity trainer, 39, and his husband are expecting twins via surrogate, they announced online in October.

The couple shared the announcement featuring a poem with flash cards.

“Some things come easy, something take time,” the cards began. “Struggles can be real, but with them you’ll find. Things happen for a reason. Sometimes you never know why. But never give up and remember it’s OK to cry. 5 years of challenges, 5 years of wait. Ups, downs in emotion, painful blows we’d take. But we learned to stay the course, hope and prayer wins. And we’re happy to finally announce…. we’re having twins!”

At the end of the cute clip, the pair appear next to their pregnant surrogate.
