According to The New York Daily News, Gwyneth was spotted drinking SEVERAL glasses of red wine!
After yesterday’s item that pregnant Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted downing Guinness with dinner on Tuesday, a reader tells me: “I sat next to her and Chris Martin at Lupa on Thompson Street Wednesday night; she had two or three glasses of wine in the time that I was there, and I left when they were partway through the main course.”
While Guinness contains iron that can be good for a pregnancy, drinking wine when you’re five months along is a tad more controversial.
Gwyneth and Chris were looking very much in love at a corner table in the back room of the popular SoHo restaurant, run by Mario Batali. Continues the spy: “She looked gorgeous as usual, with the pregnant ‘glow.’ Her face did look large though, which, according to my superstitious Italian friend who was with me, means she is having a girl, since face changes during pregnancy mean a female child.”
Clearly there are varying opinions on enjoying the ocassional beer or glass of wine while pregant, but it is simply not worth the risk. It shouldn’t be so hard to get through a pregnancy without alcohol. I personally managed to get through two pregnancies while having one glass of red wine very near the end of my first preganancy and one champagne toast the night before my scheduled c-section. This is an advertisement that Gwyneth did for the Italian Liquor Martini Rosso…NAUGHTY!
