According to the NY Daily News, rumors are swirling that fashion stylist Rachel Zoe, star of the Bravo Network’s The Rachel Zoe Project, is three-months pregnant with her first child. OK! Magazine was the first to report the news, but have since removed the article from their website. However, the removal of the original article has not deflated the pregnancy rumors. Fans of The Rachel Zoe Project are already aware that Rachel Zoe and her husband Roger Berman have been discussing starting a family, but her unwillingness to commit to the idea of starting a family has left her husband frustrated.
On The Rachel Zoe Project, Rachel expresses that she fears the waning of her career as a result of motherhood. She also repeatedly mentions that she gives “everything 500%”, and is worried that motherhood and a family life will take her away from the world of fashion that she currently lives in. Additionally, Rachel expresses concern over both her age (thirty-eight) and her frailty; the fashion stylist is notorious for her dangerously thin frame and has been plagued by anorexia rumors for years.
Although the original article posted on the OK! Magazine website has been removed, there is reason to believe why the timing may be right for Rachel to start a family. On September 29th, Rachel Zoe announced to Peoplethat her and styling assistant, Brad Goreski, have amicably parted ways. Goreski, recently profiled by the prestigious New York Times style section, intends to pursue an independent career in styling Hollywood celebrities. As seen on The Rachel Zoe Project, Rachel and Brad spent every moment of every day together, much to the frustration of her husband Rodger.
Did Rachel decide to take a short break from her career with the impending departure of her trusted styling assistant? Will the departure of Brad allow Rachel and Rodger to become as close as they had been in the past? Regardless of whether the recent rumors surrounding Rachel Zoe and her pregnancy are true, she has made it clear before that she would love to start a family soon. It will be very interesting to see on The Rachel Zoe Project how she manages to balance family life with a Hollywood-based career.
