Some women are born to perform, and they’re not gonna let a baby bump get in the way. Time lists the top 10 pregnant performers:

  1. MIA gave an impressive Grammy performance on her due date.
  2. Amy Poehler rapped alongside Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live with a big bulge.
  3. Lucille Ball got CBS to write her, ahem, condition into I Love Lucy, though the word "pregnancy" couldn't be said on air.
  4. Judy Garland hid a bump behind props in Till the Clouds Roll By.

  1. A flying nun is believable, but not a pregnant one. Sally Field covered her belly with scenery.
  2. Alias writers had Jennifer Garner’s character knocked up—by her real-life ex.
  3. Cher was pregnant with her new hubby’s kid when Sonny and Cher returned to air.
  4. Producers cut out part of Phylicia Rashad’s mattress on The Cosby Show to hide her belly during bedroom scenes.
