Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge tied the knot in April 2023, marking the beginning of their journey as a married couple. Richie has previously opened up about their relationship, noting that it initially started as a platonic friendship.

“When we started being romantic, he just gave me a different feeling,” she told Who What Wear. “It was a feeling of safety. It was the feeling of really being appreciated.

I knew when we started dating that he was my husband. It wasn’t a ‘Do you think one day he’ll propose?’ It was like, ‘This is my husband — 100 percent.’ I felt this love for him that I never felt ever in my life.”

As her due date approached, Richie shared her excitement and apprehensions with her followers on social media. In a candid video posted to her TikTok account, Richie admitted to a common fear among expectant mothers: the potential for stretch marks.

“I am seven months pregnant and I have been figuring out things that work for me, that don’t work for me, that have helped me,” Richie said in the video.

She expressed her determination to prevent stretch marks as much as possible, revealing her reliance on a specific product recommended by her doctor. “I am so afraid of getting stretch marks. I know it comes with the territory but I’m doing everything I can to prevent,” she said, holding up a tub of bumpology’s Bump Butter.

“So my doctor, when I first found out I was pregnant, she was like, ‘I have this shea butter that people love.’ I am obsessed. I’ve gone through like six tubs and ordered them.”

Richie’s openness about her pregnancy journey and her candidness in sharing both the joyous and challenging moments have endeared her even more to her followers.

Her story resonates with many expectant and new mothers who navigate the complexities of pregnancy and childbirth while trying to maintain their own health and well-being.
