The ‘Bones’ star is Fit Pregnancy’s new cover girl and opens up about her vegan lifestyle and her plans to co-sleep and breastfeed when her first baby arrives!

Wow, doesn’t Emily Deschanel look gorgeous on the cover of Fit Pregnancy? The mom-to-be, 34, who admits she “loves being pregnant,” gives us a glimpse into the life of a vegan pregnancy and admits that she’s a “total hippie,” who plans on keeping up with her strict routine long after she gives birth. So will Emily’s little boy or girl be a vegan too?

“I don’t think it’s any more challenging for me than for anyone else,” the Bones star says of her unique pregnancy diet. “The real challenge for a vegan is getting vitamin B12 and omega-3s, but you can get those in a vegetarian supplement. The funny thing is, I love kale and always used to put it in my breakfast shakes, but for some reason I can’t stand it right now.”

What she does crave is lemonade! “I want it all the time,” she confesses. “But I also crave chocolate all the time, and I try to ignore that.”

And when it comes to breastfeeding her baby-to-be, Emily, who’s married to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star David Hornsby, says she will “absolutely” do it for a year, or maybe longer.

“I’m a total hippie, so we will co-sleep and breastfeed,” she says adamantly. “It’s cheap and much better for the environment, and you don’t have to lug all that stuff around. I’m not saying it’s for everyone, but I’m determined, even if it’s hard at first.”

What do you think of Emily’s vegan pregnancy? Would you or have you done it? Share your thoughts!
