Why Zoe Saldana Doesn’t Want Invites to Playdates for her Kids.

Zoe Saldana doesn’t want you to invite her and her kids over your house for a play date. Well, if you were friends of hers and had kids close to age as hers and were so inclined anyway.

Why?

The Guardians of the Galaxy star declared that she wouldn’t want her twin boys Cy and Bowie to be restricted.

“Our kids are free,” the Avatar actress told PEOPLE magazine.  “We’re rambunctious. We’re a loud family, and we don’t stop from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. And literally, we just don’t have any play dates. You can always come to our house, our doors are open. But we don’t ever want them to be exposed to negligence, or to someone getting angry with them for just being boys.”

Saldana and her husband Marc Perego recently welcomed a third child, son Zen, to the family. She rarely shows photos of the boys’ face on her social media accounts, similar to how Beyonce, Kerry Washington, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds and other celebs have shielded their kids from public scrutiny and maintain the privacy of their kids who did not ask to be born into stardom. We can respect that, right?

It’s Not New that Gossip Rags Make up Celeb Pregnancies to Sell Mags

o-jen-570

Gossip Cop has noticed that the tabloid regularly make up stories about celebrities being pregnant when they aren’t actually are. Star, OK! and Life & Style are notorious for such headlines. It’ s not new though and these made up headlines are the predecessor to online click bait articles written with false or anonymous sources to sell to audiences but it was interesting to take note of Gossip Cop’s recent roundup.

The site pointed out Star’s new cover announcing  “miracle baby at 47” for Gwen Stefani. It also blasted the current issue of OK! declaring, Chris [Pratt] & Ann a [Farris]Baby Joy!” about Chris Pratt and Anna Faris expecting their second child.  “source” was quoted as telling the magazine, “Anna is simply glowing right now and it looks like she has a tiny baby bump.” The article claimed the couple went to counseling to save their marriage, after which they supposedly decided to expand their family. But the tabloid had previously fabricated those relationship problems, and this pregnancy was invented, too. Reps for both Faris and Pratt told Gossip Cop there was “no truth to any part of this cover story.”


And finally, it took note of  Life & Style’s story pronouncing that Jennifer Lopez is expecting with her new beau Alex Rodgriguez.  “J. Lo & A-Rod: They’re Having A Boy!” the mag declared of the “miracle baby at 47.”The piece claimed Jennifer Lopez was pregnant with a baby boy and already decorating a baseball-themed nursery, while Alex Rodriguez was narrowing down possible names. “She’s super excited about having his son. She’s not showing yet, but she can’t wait to get a baby bump,” an “insider” supposedly alleged.

Gossip Cop’s inquiry withe the rep revealed that the story was “not true.”

Bellyitch has posted it a bit in the past about how much stars like Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston and others are falsely accused of being pregnant after a hearty meal, wearing an  ill-fitting outfit or carrying their purse in front of their belly. Most times, it is nothing.

As we posted in 2010, 2013, 2015 and again in 2016,  Aniston is the most speculated celeb of all Time!

If We’re Taking Bets, We Think Serena Williams Will Get Married Next Month

williams

We guessed because Beyonce had a Push Party that she was due pretty soon to start pushing. Now, we’re thinking bout the fact that tennis champ Serena Williams had a bridal shower three weeks ago that she will marry her fiance Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian sooner than later.

This means before baby arrives later in the year.


And she, like a lot of celebs, are cool with being low key and keeping their plans out of the public until they happen.  We only saw pics of the two-day bridal shower held at Miami, Florida’s 1 Hotel and Homes South Beach. and its Bamford Haybarn Spa after the event in PEOPLE magazine exclusive pics.

Apparently, according to reports, after checking in, the next day the bride-to-be, her sisters VenusLyn and Isha, mom Oracene and her pals did some yoga and meditation on the rooftop pool deck, followed by foot massages in an air-conditioned poolside cabana then a romp on a private yacht around the city.

williams-1-2

My sis had her shower three weeks before her nuptials so I’m going to put in my bet at a June surprise wedding before her belly gets too large to fit into the type of dress Serena wants to wear for her nuptials! Let’s see if  we are correct.

Inside Beyonce’s West African-Themed ‘Push Party’ Not Baby Shower

img_6330

You might have heard of “Push Presents” and a Baby shower party to celebrate an impending arrival, but leave it to megastar Beyonce to have Push Party!

The multi-award winning recording artist starred in the festive West African themed affair held at a private residence in Beverly Hills, California.


Guests came dressed in colorful headdresses including some from Burkinabaé and also in gelées, kufis, and Ankara styles.

img_6331

The guest of honor herself donned a  cropped African print top and garrah with her head wrap common in Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Gambia and Sierra Leone which she accented with henna tattoos on her belly, a pregnant lady trend we’ve posted about in the past. Her oversize authentic bamboo fan earrings and jewelry all area native to West African costumes.

In Instagram posts Bey’s mom Tina Lawson shared on line, guests included Serena Williams, our Bumpwatch Alum Kelly Rowland who dressed in a Batik tie-dyed off-the-shoulder halter top and slim skirt, LaLa Anthony and another alum Vanessa Bryant also in a Burkinabaé head wrap and jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.

Black and White photos circulating on the Internet showed the venue decorated in African fabric as music from the late Nigerian artist Fela Kuti.

Also, her husband Rapper Jay Z was spotted dancing and having a ball.
We imagine a push party did not involve giving of gifts.

Or it could mean she’s closer to pushing than we think   Her mom was spotted at Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA this week.

Back to the fete:The guests posted photos of the festivities on each of their respective Social media feeds using the hashtag #CarterPushParty. Check them out.

Fun fun fun❤️ Angie, Serena, lala, Vanessa Kelly, Lorraine❤️

Bump Speculation: Meghan Markle at Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Reception

89c946ff-d93a-4830-97f8-b6d4aa22dee8

The sister to our most popular bumpwatched alum Catherine Duchess of Cambridge (nee Kate Middleton) got married on Saturday, May 20 at St. Mark’s church in England:

Pippa Middleton married her fiancé of two years, hedge fund manager James Matthews, at a lavish ceremony where her niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in the wedding party, along with sister Kate and princes Harry and William.


The bride wore a jaw-dropping white lace gown courtesy of British designer Giles Deacon.

She also married into royalty as Matthews is the heir to a Scottish title. His father, David Matthews, is otherwise known as the Laird of Glen Affric, meaning that eventually, Pippa will be known as Lady of Glen Affric.

The ceremony was also notable for rumors that Pippa only permitted significant others who were fiance or married to a family member to attend- a so-called “no ring, no bring” policy.

William’s bro is famously seriously dating American actress Meghan Marke. While the Suits star didn’t make the ceremony, the Daily Mail reports that she did attend other wedding weekend events including a Bucklebury,  Bershire event and  air exhibition at the Middleton’s estate.

Markel attended while Pippa’s brother-in-law Spencer Matthews‘ girlfriend Vogue Williams did not. So…hmmmm

Also, we don’t think it is there, but a few folks thought they saw a slight bump on her recently, sparking Bumpwatch and marriage speculation widely.

Time will tell.

Serena Williams Bumps It Up On a Yacht

serena-yacht

Serena Williams took to Instagram this weekend to share some lovely photos of herself sunbathing on a yacht. The first-time expectant Tennis Champ and her fiance Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child this year.

Williams made the announcement accidentally on Snapchat while chronicling her fourth month of pregnancy. Since the secret’s been out, she the 26-time Grand Slam Serena Williams champ has been open sharing bump progression photos on Instagram.


Last weekend, she gathered 20 of her close family  and friends including sisters Venus, Lyn and Isha and mom Oracene for a “magical” bridal shower at 1Hotel & Homes South Beach in Miami, Florida.

“Serena is one of my best friends, so a lot of love and thought went into planning the magical detail-oriented bridal shower weekend,” event planner Val Vogt of The VLV Group revealed to ET. “There were constant surprises; from a painting party to unique bridal shower games to having a live fashion illustrator on the yacht.”

This makes us think the wedding will come before baby is born.

Check out her recent IG shares:
