Diana Jenkins has debuted her baby bump for the first time. Months after her pregnancy was confirmed in December 2022, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star shared a picture of her growing tummy on her Instagram Stories on March 7, 2023.
“Need I say anything lol,” Jenkins, 49, captioned the post, in which she appears to be taking her glucose test. The mom-to-be was sitting on the side of a bed drinking out of a glass jug and holding her shirt up to expose her belly.
A source close to the RHOBH star told Heavy the philanthropist is feeling “great,” after spending much of her first trimester on bedrest. She is due to give birth in August 2023.

Diana Jenkins Is Having a Girl & the Baby Will Be Born in London
Jenkins is expecting a girl, her second with beau Asher Monroe, the source told Heavy. The couple also share daughter Eliyanah, 2. Jenkins has two adult children, Innis, 22, and Eneya, 19, from a previous relationship.
Jenkins said she is “excited” to add another girl to her brood.
The source revealed additional good news about Jenkins’ pregnancy, telling Heavy the reality star is no longer on bedrest. In December 2022, an insider told Page Six the bed rest was necessary “because of [Jenkins’] health history.”
On season 12 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Jenkins shared that she suffered a life-threatening miscarriage.
“She and Asher are very excited about the new baby, but they’re being very cautious, obviously — because she’s only a few weeks pregnant and because of what she’s been through in her fertility journey,” the source told Page Six.
“What’s up. It’s 17 weeks and I am chilling in here. Good news. Doctor says we can fly,” Jenkins captioned a video of her ultrasound on March 3, 2023.
According to People magazine, Jenkins and Monroe will travel to London in Jenkins’ third trimester so the expectant mom can give birth across the pond. Jenkins’ other children were also born in England, the outlet reported.
Diana Jenkins Will Not Be Returning to RHOBH Season 13 but She’s Still Hanging Out With the Ladies
On January 9, 2023, Jenkins announced she would not be a part of the upcoming season of RHOBH.
“As so many of you know, Asher and I are expecting our second child later this year,” she captioned an Instagram post. “You also know that due to many factors, this pregnancy is considered high risk and I am on doctor-advised bed rest. To that end, I am not able to devote myself fully to filming the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Jenkins, who founded and is CEO of Neuro Drinks, is scheduled to attend Elton John’s Oscar event on Sunday, March 12, 2023, where Neuro is a presenting sponsor — Jenkins’ first public event and red-carpet appearance since confirming her pregnancy.
“Neuro Drinks is delighted to be sponsoring the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party this Sunday!” read a Facebook post shared by the company. “Over 37 Million people live with HIV worldwide, and although much has been achieved, there is still much more to be done. The Elton John AIDS Foundation has successfully raised much-needed funds for over 28 years to keep pushing the fight to #EndAIDS by 2030, making sure those most vulnerable are not left behind.”
According to the company’s website, Jenkins and Neuro “support many causes, including Human Rights, Disaster Relief and the Environment, with Neuro in the process of becoming a fully sustainable brand.”
Jenkins has a long history of philanthropic work, including establishing the Sanela Diana Jenkins Human Rights Project in 2009 to address human rights issues around the world.
