Serena Williams is having a very social week. A day after making her red carpet baby bump debut, the tennis champ attended the launch of the Burberry DK88 Bag hosted by Christopher Bailey at Burberry Soho on May 2, 2017 in New York City.

Whitney Port is finally coming from under the exhaustion spell of pregnancy. She posted a photo of herself looking happy and well…energetic on her Instagram account recently.

Her fellow MTV The Hills alum co-star Lauren Conrad has been laying low but was spotted  at designer Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2017 ‘See Now, Buy Now’ Fashion Show on February 4, 2017 earlier in her pregnancy.

And another MTV family alum, Heidi Pratt showed off her bump with her hubby Spencer Pratt this week. “Sunday Fun. The 3 of Us,” she captioned an Instagram photo of the growing family.

Meanwhile, Beyonce has been busy making news as well. She appeared at her mom Tina Knowles Lawson and step dad Richard Lawson‘s charity fundraiser to support the WACO Theater Center in California. The event called the Inaugural Wearable Art Gala raised $1M, according to a recent post  by Beyonce. It is reminiscent of the Met Ball, which also encourages attendees to wear artistic renditions of clothing or vice versa, wear art like clothes.


Meanwhile, Bey released the collector’s edition of her multi-award winning visual album, “Lemonade.” The box set will set you back $300 but it comes with behind the scenes photos, prints of Beyonce’s personal hand written notes drafted during the creation of the project and much more.

Whitney Port Loves Her Baby, But Hates Pregnancy; the Focus of her New Vlog Series (WATCH)

whienty-port

TV and Lifestyle personality Whitney Port is keeping it real with her fans and followers by re-invigorated her 4-year old YouTube channel and launching a vlog series to document her pregnancy.

It’s called “I love my baby, but I hate my pregnancy” and through it, the former star of MTV‘s The Hills and The City, gives an unfiltered look into the highs and most of the lows and difficulties with her pregnancy. But don’t get it twisted. I don’t think she is complaining because I think she knows pregnancy is a blessing or fortunate thing that not all women who want to experience it can.


I do think Port just wants to connect to her pregnant sisters in the struggle. I get it. Her husband video tapes her, often times, in bed, without make up, eating yogurt, tossled hair and just giving it straight, no chaser.

“I am by no means telling you guys what to do, or how to deal with your pregnancy,” she says in her first vlog. “Just thought, from one pregnant woman to another, that it would be fun to share the journey with you.”

In episode one, she also shared the fact that the pregnancy was unexpected. She was preparing to have an MRI and was told that she couldn’t be pregnant so she decided to take a test. Chapter three was posted yesterday.

It’s really good, I think. I like and think it’s worth checking out because I appreciate honesty and candor. We’ve already seen the perfect nurseries, the gorgeous baby bumps, beautiful baby moons and high fashion maternity shoots most pregnant celebs share on their social media feeds. Good for Whit! Here are the first three posts:

 

Whitney Port’s Life is Perfect on Instagram; Pregnancy, Not so Much

whitneyport

Former reality TV show star of The Hills and The City, Whitney Port’s life is pretty rosy and beautiful by the looks of her Instagram page. It’s the quintessential lifestyle blogger profile.

However, the newly pregnant entrepreneur is getting real about carrying a baby.


“Pregnancy has not been easy for me,” she admitted. “I’m not going to say that it’s all glowy skin and sunshine and butterflies.”

But despite all the “weird things” happening to her body, and feeling “gross all the time” during her first trimester, she’s excited about what’s to come: “There’s a fine line between complaining and dealing with it,” she said. “I try to be positive, because it is such a wonderful thing.”

In a recent feature in Health.com, Port shares four tips that have helped her stay calm and balanced through the early stages of her pregnancy. They’re pretty good tips.

Port announced that she and her husband are expecting their first child in a humorous post on Instagram  in February. It is the first child for them both.

Another ‘The Hills’ Alum is Expecting, Whitney Port this Time

getty whitney port

Last month, I did a round up of all the female alums from the MTV reality TV shows Laguna Beach and its spinoff, The Hills  who are now married with kids.

Whitney Port, who starred in two seasons of her own spinoff called The City and currently manages a lifestyle brand, was one of three who did not have a kid yet or wasn’t pregnant.


Little did I know back then that Port was pregnant but was still early.  The rising fashion designer and QVC presenter just announced her pregnancy news this weekend on Instagram.

“Oh hey! Just standing by the window in my underwear, with a BABY in my belly,” she wrote alongside a Friday Instagram post. “DM me if you know what I’m supposed to do with this thing for how ever many years I’m supposed to be in charge.”

Cute!

Port is married to Tim Rosenmann, who was an associate producer on her show The City.

She also directed fans to her blog to a post titled, “WE’RE PREGNANT!!!”

Almost All the ‘Laguna Beach’ Female Cast Are Married with Children

laguna-beach

Cast photo from MTV’s 2004-2006 Reality TV show Laguna Beach, Today, Audrina Patridge, Kristin Cavallari,Alex Murrell Christina Schuller and Morgan Smith are married w/kids.

I was in my late 20s when MTVs Laguna Beach was on the air and back then the teens who the show followed who were well-to-do inhabitants of Orange Count, California  seemed like babies to me.  The show was supposed to present the real life version of the then-popular scripted The CW TV show, The OC. 

They all seemed so young to me back then and I remember never ever really knowing what Kristin was saying because she talked so fast, and I am a very fast talker myself. Even though I’m pretty much a goody-two shoes myself, I rooted for her against the very perfect Lauren Conrad.

Now that one of the main stars, Lauren Conrad,  is expecting her first child, it is interesting to note that almost all of the girls from Laguna Beach (and spinoff The Hill and The City) are married with kids.


Audrina Patridge welcomed her first child, daughter, Kirra Max, early in 2016 and Kristin Cavallari is well ahead of all of them, having given birth to her third child, daughter Saylor James in 2015.  She gave birth to her first child, son Camden, in August 2012 and second, Jaxon in May 2014;

Laguna Beach alum Alex Murrel gave birth to a son last July with her spouse and a month later another alum of that show about “the Real Orange County”,  named after the hit show The OC ‘s fictionalized portrayal of the posh coastal region, gave birth. Casey Reindhardt and her husband welcomed their first child, a daughter they named Kensington. Christina Schuller (nee Sinclair) welcomed her first child, son Christian Sutton, in 2014. This past September 2016,  Morgan Smith (nee Olson) welcomed her second child with her husband,  daughter, after giving birth to son Theo in 2014. Jessica Evans (nee Smith) is a stay at home mom to three and is expecting her fourth child, a little girl this March.

Lo Bosworth is the only one not yet married and she is busy managing several successful lifestyle brands, lovewellness, a women’s wellness company and her blog The Lo Down Blog.   Taylor Cole married a real estate investor in 2015. No kids yet for the California-based professional photographer, but perhaps this will be the year.  Whitney Port also got married and manages a TV and fashion design career and a successful lifestyle brand.

And there you have it! My version of “Where are they now?! ” lol!
