Sofia Richie Grainge has taken her popular get ready with me videos to the next level: Think a makeup tutorial is exciting? How about following a months-long journey to parenthood, like the one Richie Grainge is on after she revealed to Vogue last week that she and husband Elliot Grainge are expecting a baby girl.
The model gave her growing baby bump its red carpet debut Thursday night at the Warner Music Group pre-Grammys 2024 party at Los Angeles’ Citizen News. She wore a black off-the-shoulder top, unbuttoned slightly at the bottom, black pants, and black slingback heels. She accessorized her monochrome look with David Yurman jewelry (Richie Grainge is an ambassador for the brand) and a black clutch purse.
Richie Grainge and Grainge got married on the French Riviera in April 2023 in one of the most talked-about celebrations of the year, spurring an obsession with the “quiet luxury” look that many say Richie Grainge embodies. (For the record, she says the term “sounds really nice, so I’m not knocking it, but [my stylist] Liat Baruch and I started working together properly about three and a half years ago, and when we met, our word was ‘timeless.’”) Richie Grainge walked down the aisle in custom-designed Chanel, one of three looks the house created for her that she wore during her wedding festivities.
Richie Grainge, 25, told Vogue that she and Grainge, 30, had been “casually trying” to get pregnant since their wedding, and that she confirmed this pregnancy “very, very early.”
“I was about four weeks pregnant. I was on a trip to Milan for Fashion Week, and I was going to the Prada show. I was doing a really quick 24-hour turnaround, and I felt terrible but didn’t think much of it. I thought it was jet lag,” she said. Knowing that she was going out with friends the next night and that her period was a few days late, she took a cheap test to be safe. When she saw a line indicating a positive, she sent Grainge to the store for more tests.
“He was so excited,” she said of her husband. “We spoke the whole way on the phone. And when he came home, he’s such a sweet guy he always wants to protect my emotions and expectations, so he kind of sat me down and said, ‘If these are negative, don’t be upset. Our moment will come.’ When we turned over all three tests at the same time they were all positive. He was so excited, and we both cried. It was crazy and overwhelming and so hard not to scream it from the rooftops. But knowing I was so early, I was so protective—even with my friends.”
The baby girl is due sometime in late May or June, according to Richie Grainge’s sign reveal (it’s a Gemini! Oh, and a girl.), and now that the world knows she’s on her way, Richie Grainge said she’s ready to unleash her take on pregnancy fashion instead of trying to conceal her growing bump.
“Now that we’re announcing it, I have so many ideas,” she said. “I’m not really tapping into maternitywear at all, if anything, I’m just sizing up. I’m also not buying an entirely new wardrobe for this pregnancy. I’ve bought a few pairs of pants in bigger sizes, but I’m wearing my same jackets, and sweaters, and trenches—I’m about to have some fun with it now that I can spread my wings and fly.”
As for the closet staples she’s saved for her sure-to-be well-dressed daughter?
“I have a lot of little bags to pass down,” Richie Grainge said. “I have a lot in mind.”
