Poppy Montgomery packed on 67 poundsPosted on Sep 30th 2008 8:30AM by Jacki Donaldson
I gained 50 and then 42 pounds with my pregnancies, but Without A Trace actress Poppy Montgomery has got me beat: She packed on 67 pounds while pregnant with baby Jackson, now eight months old.Montgomery took full advantage of gaining weight -- producers wrote the pregnancy into the show's plot so there were no over-sized purses, pillows, or coats covering her changing figure. An invitation to gain weight -- what's better than that?
"I was like, 'Great! Ben & Jerry's for breakfast, Ben & Jerry's for lunch, Ben & Jerry's for dinner,'" she says. And it wasn't just ice cream she ate. It was everything.

"I would have eaten my desk if I could have fit it into my mouth," shares the 36-year-old, whose baby weighed 7 lbs, 4 oz. -- and not the 15 pounds she thought he might weigh.
