Pregnancy cuddles! Many expectant moms look forward to welcoming a new baby into the family. A furry companion can often be comforting during the nine-month journey.
“They do not leave my side these days,” Dancing With the Stars Pro Sharna BurgessIn a March 2022 Instagram Story, she shared a photo of her two French bulldogs nuzzling her growing bump. “Honestly, it’s Pascal that wants to be on or near my belly at all times. Daisy, however, is much less thrilled about a new addition.”
Burgess, who had announced one month prior that she was expecting her first child together with her boyfriend Brian Austin Green, has continued to update her followers on social media about her pregnancy progress. (The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum is already the father of Noah, Bodhi and Journey, whom she shares with ex-wife Megan Fox, and Kassius whom he shares with ex Vanessa Marcil.)
“His favorite place for afternoon nap time,” the dancer cooed via Instagram Story later that March, sharing a snap of her belly. “Little Pascal already loving on Peanut.”
Burgess doesn’t just love her dog, she is a celebrity mama too. While Olivia Munn — who welcomed her first child in November 2021 — kept the majority of her pregnancy under wraps, she couldn’t resist sharing a cuddly pic with her two dogs that September.
“Our routines are changing and our pets need us. I took Petco’s free Well-Adjusted Dog seminar to help prepare my pups for these changes and encourage all pet parents to do the same,” the former Daily Show Correspondent who shares son Malcolm (with boyfriend) John MulaneyThe following was written by a user of Instagram at the time. “Frankie & Chance have helped me get through difficult times and now I’m doing the same for them.”

The “Stronger” songstress, who shares sons Sean Preston and Jayden with ex-husband Kevin Federline, confirmed she is pregnant with her and fiancé Sam Asghari’s first child in April 2022. Spears shared an adorable snap on Instagram of Sawyer and Spears cuddling for Easter.
“I love dogs,” the Louisiana native wrote via Instagram that March. “I found Sawyer in Maui, a gift from God!!! Literally!!! He held me so tight when I held him that I literally couldn’t leave the place!!! … He’s only 8 months and if anyone comes in my room that he doesn’t know, he literally acts like a lion!!!”
