Heavily pregnant Chloe Green spotted vaping on yacht as boyfriend Jeremy Meeks looks on
According to the doctor, vape pens, especially when flavored, cause more harm than good to not only the child but the mother as well in certain cases
A heavily pregnant Chloe Green was recently photographed vaping while cruising on a yacht in Monaco while baby daddy Jeremy Meeks, looked on. The picture which surfaced on the internet has caused a lot of turmoil among fans who have been expressing concern for the unborn child's health.
The picture, which was was first published by TMZ, shows the couple on vacation in Monaco, and Chloe, who is eight months pregnant, can be spotted with a vape pen blowing out smoke in the air.
Her boyfriend, on the other hand, is seen looking on and not even giving the slightest reaction to his pregnant girlfriend smoking, which clearly indicates a lack of concern on the baby daddy's part regarding his future child.
A lot of people have argued in defense of the 27-year-old heiress, saying that though smoking is an absolute no-no during pregnancy, vaping might not be so dangerous for the unborn child.
Hollywood Life spoke to Los Angeles-based doctor Dr Peter Gonzalez about the effects of vaping and if it indeed is a safer alternative for pregnant women while they are on the verge of giving birth.
“Studies on the dangers and long-term effects of vaping are still ongoing, but I would advise all women not to vape while pregnant, and to abstain from all, or any, smokeless products containing tobacco, such as snuff, chewing tobacco, etc,” he said.
He also spoke about the evils of nicotine, describing how it increases the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, apart from its other side-effects that include, "miscarriage, infant apnea, stillbirth, low birth weight, decreased lung and brain development, placental abruption, and preterm delivery."
According to the doctor, vape pens, especially when flavored, cause more harm than good to not only the child but the mother as well in certain cases.
“The popular flavored E-cigarettes, such as vanilla, berries, mint, and coffee, etc. are potentially even more damaging to fetal development, and even those that do not contain tobacco have been proven to dramatically increase the possibility of craniofacial defects.” Dr Gonzalez went on to add that pregnant women should abstain “from smoking any kind of product whatsoever, be it tobacco based, or nicotine free.”
Meeks and Jeremy, who reportedly revealed their pregnancy in March, are currently enjoying a vacation in Monaco. However, Meeks is still undergoing the process of divorcing his estranged wife, whom he reportedly left for his now-girlfriend Green, citing that he is head-over-heels in love with her.
"Love means everything, everything to me. It's what keeps people alive, it's what keeps people going, to love and to be loved," Meeks told FV Magazine earlier this month. "I've never been in this place mentally, emotionally, physically, that I'm in right now. I've never been in such an amazing place."
Meeks has another son, which he shares with his former wife, Melissa Meeks. However, he claims that the couple grew apart, while he shot to fame for his insanely hot mugshot pictures which went viral on the internet.
"The people who really know me and my family know that my marriage had been over for a long time when I met Chloe," Meeks told in an interview in November. “For a while my wife and I had a very good life together and then for a long time we didn’t. The marriage was over for a lot longer than people think."
