Properly Preggers: Media Representations of Celebrity Mommies and the Social Capital of the Ideal Pregnant Body

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This critical essay uses discourse analysis and historical analysis to understand media constructions of the ideal celebrity pregnancy. It positions coverage of Kim Kardashian’s and Kate Middleton’s pregnancies against mid-20th century coverage of celebrity pregnancies. Analysis shows the ideal pregnant body is guarded by a man, is fashionably accessorized, and is carefully restricted in size and shape. Applying Foucauldian principles of surveillance and examination, I suggest pregnancy coverage constructs pregnant women as ultimate “docile bodies.”
