Star magazine is reporting that Nicole’s not only facing legal hurdles at the moment, she allegedly is dealing with the physical repercussions of her substance abuse and questionable eating habits. Maintaining her sobriety while pregnant has been a challenge for the underweight starlet and doctors say that if at the time of conception, she did happen to have drugs in her system, she’ll be facing a higher danger of birth defects or miscarriage. In addition to her struggle to stay off drugs and alcohol, Nicole’s also fighting an uphill battle to attain a healthy weight. Dr. Mary Jane Minkin (who, Star points out, is not treating Nicole) gives her opinion on the situation.
“That baby is at extraordinary risk,” says Dr. Minkin. “Nicole needs to gain at least 40 pounds to nourish the baby properly.”
On a lighter note, Nicole appears to be slowly getting some cleavage back. Yay! Boobies!
