Vanessa Minnillo Lachey has a pregnancy scare that may differ than most pregnant women—the petite brunette is concerned that her belly button will protrude! LOL!
The 31-year-old beauty who is expecting her first child, a boy, with husband Nick Lachey, is so terrified about developing what looks like a ‘third nipple’ that she is even scared to sneeze normally.
“Everyone’s belly button is different. Some women’s belly buttons pop and some women’s don’t,” she told TV talk show host Bethenny Frankel.
“I thought, ‘Oh I wouldn’t mind if it popped because then it would be like the turkey’s done,’ right? And it’s cute! But my stylist was like, ‘You don’t want that to pop. That’s like having a third nipple.’
Every time I sneeze, I hold my belly button in. For some reason I think I’m going to sneeze it out.”
But other than that whole belly button thing, the former MTV veejay loves being pregnant because of how empowered she feels.
“I love everything about being pregnant. It’s empowering as a woman to be able to go through this process and create a human being.”
The mother-to-be took some time to relax and get the third-nipple-belly-button thoughts out of her head.
Joined by an unidentifiable female friend, Lachey stopped by Bellacures Nail Salon in L.A.’s Studio City area, where the “Wipeout” host went for a gelicure.
“She looked relaxed and comfortable in a black maxi dress,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Lachey did have one request unrelated to nails during her time at the salon—an iced tea from Il Tramezzino, the Italian eatery nearby.
