Hot Mama: Rosie Pope
The full-on mompreneur draws from personal experience to build her brand.
Rosie Pope has made babies her business. Literally. The British entrepreneur founded the posh Rosie Pope Maternity label in 2008 and in 2010, she launched MomPrep workshops from her Santa Monica studio. Considering that many of the moms in attendance were among Hollywood elite, it only seemed fitting that Rosie would be offered a reality series to document her parenting education. Thus, Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels was born. A book deal followed—Mommy IQ—and Parents magazine approached Rosie about writing a monthly column (Rosie to the Rescue!). Collaborations have been plentiful, the latest being GAP x Rosie Pope, and Rosie is frequently sought out by the media to weigh in on everything from maternity fashion and baby style to parenting tips and trends. As her empire has grown, so has her family. Rosie and her husband have four spirited children—giving her plenty of inspiration for future projects.
