Moms rocked it on 2013 Billboard Awards Blue Carpet

Our past Bellyitch moms rocked the blue carpet tonight during the 2013 Billboards Music Awards. Winning the award for the fastest body snapback was Jennifer Nettles (above) in a pink form fitting with gold embellishments Georges Chakra Spring 2013 dress. The Sugarland singer only delivered her first child, Magnus, this past December and she has managed to snap back into super svelte shape in under 5 months. She looked Wow!

Alyssa Milano, mom to 1 1/2 year old Milo, was spotted looking elegant in Emilio Pucci Spring 2013 collection. Going bold in white. Love it. 

Amber Rose,who just had her first child this February, a son with fiance Wiz Khalifa, looked radiant in a black Gucci sheath dress and smoking hot Tom Ford heels. Crave.

Christina Aguilera has slimmed down tremendously and rocked it out haute couture style in  a  flirty Herve Leger by Max Azria dress.

Twins Max and Emme’s mom, Jennifer Lopez was smoking in Murad Couture. The plunging neckline in the gold fitted dress is signature sexy J.Lo.

Although we never “bumpwatched” Jenny McCarthy, we couldn’t leave out this vocal mom’s fun and youthful two piece look from Tom Ford‘s  Fall 2013 collection. She is so fashion forward.

Bump Watch: Kim Kardashian at MTV Movie Awards, avoids doing the quintessential pregnant woman pose

Kim Kardashian looked great in a billowy sleeved key hole black mini dress and tassel necklace at the MTV Movie Awards last night where she introduced a performance by Selena Gomez. Cute outfit but a little put off by the fact that she did not cusp her belly like every pregnant celebrity does on the red carpet to at least show their maternal instinct.
Kim and sister Kylie Jenner
By opting to do the I’m so sexy pose, pay no attention to this growing belly protruding from my mid-section, look, she really comes off as this pregnancy is just one other thing to happen. I’m thinking and hoping when the baby comes she may get more with it.
However, from the looks of things, and totally from my keyboard’s eye view, she may be one of those moms who really dislike the pregnancy, labor, birthing and mothering part of motherhood. That’s not a judgment per se. I personally have friends who never felt connected to the entire process and still are not quite digging being parents. Other friends I know just have babies for their husbands and do very little to actually raise the kids they have. 
It’s not to say they’re selfish people just that motherhood is not their thing. That should be fine. There’s no mandatory requirement that all moms must enjoy being mothers. It’s just society assumes we all grow to love it, but to be honest, not all do.
The only unfortunate thing about that type of situation is that the type of stuff the mom does or say can be received by the child in direct and indirect ways. That’s a tough thing for a child to experience and could impact them when they too grow older. 
Anyway, that’s just my armchair analysis, for what’ its’ worth.
What do you think? Am I way off or right on?

Oscar 2013 Red Carpet: 10 moms including 7 past winners and 1 mom-to-be

The award season culminates tonight with the Academy Awards, being held this year at the Colby Theater and Hollywood and Highland Center in Los Angeles.
And as with the other award shows, Bellyitch was proud to spot some of its recent and not-to-recent “bumpwatch” alums looking fab as they walked the red carpet tonight.  
Seven of the our past Bellyitch featured moms have won Academy Awards in the past.
The top hot look in our book went to mom to Jackson Theron, Charlize Theron, who was absolutely gorgeous with her smart chic short hair while rocking a fab Christian Dior couture dress. Theron has a Best Actress Oscar for her past role in Monster.

Here are 10 other of our faves!

Sandra Bullock, mom to Louis, born January 2010, looked radiant in a  silver sheer Elie Saab couture spring 2013 gown. Bullock is a past Best Actress Oscar winner for her role in The Blind Side.

Halle Berry, mom to Nahla, stunned in a gorgeous shimmery Versace dress. Who can believe this past Best Actress Oscar winner (Monster’s Ball) is 46 and looks to youthful!? Amazing!

Nicole Kidman looked graceful in an  L’Wren Scott Fall  2013  sequin fitted fishtail gown. Kidman has a Best Actress Oscar for her role in The Hours.
Adele returns to her comfort zone after taking so much heat from her Grammy outfit. She went with  a custom beaded and sheer lace Jenny Packham gown. Packham is a fave of fellow Brit and current bumpwatchee Kate Middleton. This is a very safe yet flattering look Adele.  She performed the theme to Skyfall which won her first Academy Award tonight for best original song! Yay! Congrats!

Past Best Supporting Actress Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson, mom to David,  rocked it in a blue sequined Roberto Cavalli dress. I think I like the bangs and the long hair. I would have mixed it up with a different color clutch and shoes but this look works for me! Hudson won for her role in Dreamgirls.

New mom to Tennessee and past Oscar winner for best actress  Reese Witherspoon wowed in a blue Louis Vuitton dress and accessories. Witherspoon nabbed the award for her role in Walk the Line. It’s very Jessica Lange and works!

Jennifer Garner looked A-Mazing in a purple custom Gucci gown in a rich royal magenta-purplish hue.  She has the best shoulders. That color looked great on her. She clutched on to the hands of her hubby whose film he directed  Argo won the Best film. He was not up for Best Director but he already won that honor  and best picture, drama, for Argo at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs, SAGs, and Critics’ Choice Awards. 

Back to back stunning looks for Giuliana Rancic, mom to Duke Edward, born August 29, 2012. Rancic looks fab in a strapless Rafael Cennamo fitted dress. The red lipstick gives it that pop. And here we have yet another tine hard clutch.

Heidi Klum showed up in a neckline plunging Julien McDonald gold beaded dress on the red carpet to Elton John‘s famed and A-List attended annual Oscar watch party at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California.The event benefits the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Wowza!!

Jenna Dewan-Chattum was the only mom-to be on the carpet, that we know of and she looked great in her belly hugging black lace Rachel Roy dress. CORRECTION: Georgina Chapman was also there last night See THIS POST.


Past Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum January Jones, Madmen   star, and mom to Xander, didn’t make the Oscars red carpet but yesterday Saturday, February 23, she did hit the Chanel Pre-Oscar dinner at Madeo Restaurant in Los Angeles, California in a Chanel Couture Fall 2012 sheer lace pants with nude underlay. She did a repeat of her Grammy hair. Lovely!

Beyonce Redux? Amber Rose reveals pregancy at MTV VMA red Carpet

So… as rumored, TV host, former model and video vixen and aspiring singer Amber Rose did reveal on the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) red carpet that she and fiance mega rapper Wiz Khalifa are expecting their first child. She totally pulled a Beyonce.
So I was totally wrong thinking Rose wouldn’t copy another much bigger star’s way of revealing her pregnancy to the world, but alas, she did. Congrats Amber!
It was among the worst kept secrets in gossip blog world though, right?

White House bumpwatch: Reese Witherspoon and Anna Paquin on WHCD event red carpet

Anna Paquin and Reese Witherspoon both opted for black on the red carpet of the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, DC this Saturday, April 27.
Paquin, who just announced that she and True Blood co-star and hubby Stephen Moyer are expecting their first child together, looked absolutely radiant in a chic and elegant silk jersey gown by French designer Herve L. Leroux. Jersey is THE best fabric to wear when pregnant because it is comfortable, breathable and forgiving. 

Witherspoon went with a bump hugging  black Monique Lhuillier gown featuring an asymmetrical neckline and keyhole detailing.
