Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott Welcomes Her Twin Girls

Congrats to Lady Antebellum front woman Hillary Scott and her husband Chris Tyrell welcomed their twin girls this week.

The front woman for the famous country group was missing during Sunday night’s telecast of the Grammy Awards because she was busy prepping for the birth of her second and third children.

Band member Dave Haywood delivered the message:  “Our girl’s back at home. She’s due any second with twin girls. Couldn’t be more happy for her, but we miss her. We feel so weird without her on the red carpet.”

Scott and Tyrell are parents to 4-year old daughter Eisele Kaye.

Scott shared the news about the babies’ arrival.

“Our family is thankful and proud to announce the arrival of our precious baby girls. They were born in the early hours of January 29th, 2018 and we can’t wait to share more about them in the days to come. Thank you to everyone who prayed and prayed for these little ladies, and thank you Lord for healthy babies. #twins.”

The new additions came following the couple’s miscarriage which she talked about with her followers and fans, and even penning a song about the experience. Congrats!

Love the family style table and rustic table settings in this photo above. It looks like it was a fabulous time. She also shared the most adorable pic babies bump progression pic recently. Love that glow! Gorgeous!

This is Scott and husband Chris Tyrrell’s third and fourth children after suffering a devastating miscarriage earlier which inspired a hit song, “Thy Will” about the ordeal.

The couple announced the news this August in a tender video with their daughter, who they say had been hoping and praying along with mom and dad for another baby.

“You know how you’ve been praying a lot about having a baby and about God giving our family another baby?” Tyrrell says to Eisele  in the video. “Well … God has answered that prayer, and Mommy is pregnant with a baby in her belly”.

Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott is the latest celebrity expecting twins!

The country singer and  her husband Chris Tyrrell announced on Friday that they are expecting twins by posting a very cute video of the two of them explaining the double blessing to their  4-year-old daughter, Eisele Kaye.

“You know how you’ve been praying a lot about having a baby and about God giving our family another baby?” Tyrrell says to Eisele  in the video. “Well … God has answered that prayer, and Mommy is pregnant with a baby in her belly”.

It’s welcome news for Scott who suffered a miscarriage not long ago.

She wrote the song “Thy Will” to help herself heal.

“I wrote this song in the middle of experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage, so it was at my most raw place that I could have ever been when this song truly poured out of me,” she shared about the song.

But in the same twin announcement Instagram post, Scott captioned, “God has answered our family’s countless prayers! Our family is growing … Chris, Eisele, and I wanted to share our DOUBLE portion of joy with you all!”

She added, “Chris nor I have any family history of twins that we can find and are just resting in the profound gift this truly is.”

We appreciate all the love and prayers in the coming weeks as we wait (somewhat patiently if you're Chris and I, and impatiently if you're Eisele 😂) for these precious BABIES to arrive. Yep, babies! We are having TWINS! It's truly a miracle. Because we've been so open about our last pregnancy loss and journey, I want to be fully transparent with you that this happened naturally. Chris nor I have any family history of twins that we can find and are just resting in the profound gift this truly is. My heart still grieves for our loss and all who are struggling with pregnancy and infant loss and infertility. God hears every prayer and I will continue to share our story to point to the Source of all life, peace and comfort in the best and most difficult of times. Don't lose hope! Thank you @hodgesusry for capturing this priceless moment and make sure you swipe to see all the sweet moments @montgomeryleephoto captured on the day we told Eisele. Love and blessings to all!

Herbal Essences Faces Backlash Over #PregnantWomenCan Campaign

Beauty brand Herbal Essences had great intentions when it  partnered with over 100 influencers, including the brand’s celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager, Laura Reynoso of Spanglish Fashion, and Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott. They countered a prevailing notion that pregnant women are fragile beings and thus, the campaigned asked them to share the amazing things they were able to accomplish while pregnant.

With partnership with Wakefield Research, Herbal Essence sought to uncover what types of unsolicited advice pregnant women get while expecting. More than 60 percent were advised not to exercise when they were carrying, even though exercise is totally safe for most pregnant women, and 59 percent said they were told not to eat the same foods. And nearly 50 percent were told not to complete the same household chores

To prove that pregnancy doesn’t mean slowing down necessarily, the brand released a vide that highlights what real women were able to accomplish while pregnant despite often hearing that they “can’t.” In it,  pregnant women are seen working, lifting, dancing, surfing, performing, and more.

Problem: a lot of the activities are not necessarily safe for the babies in the pregnant women’s belly, hence the backlash in social media and among online viewers of the video.

“Just stop. Pregnant women can do most of those things, but shouldn’t,” one commenter wrote in the YouTube comment section to the campaign ad. “They are weaker than their average self, and shouldn’t risk their child’s life just for some dumb movement. Its like these people who text in drive. They are like ‘im a good driver, so i won’t get into an accident’ but end up doing so.”

Another replied, “do exercise, yes, but don’t overdo yourself. You still need energy to have your child.”

Some spoke about how their jobs actually required them to take it easy.

“When I was pregnant I worked as a CNA, and when I informed my charge nurse I was pregnant, she put me on light work,” one commenter said. “I had to take it easy, needed 2 people at all times to do any sort of heavy lifting, etc. Then when I was around 32 weeks along they wouldn’t let me work anymore, FOR THE BABIES SAFETY”

And one totally relatable: “What kind of a woman surfs when she is pregnant? Completely irresponsible.”

The advise from random people may be off base, but recommendations from physicians and medical institutions should be given more weight. For example, the Mayo Clinic suggests pregnant women consider avoiding:

  • Any exercises that force you to lie flat on your back after your first trimester
  • Scuba diving, which could put your baby at risk of decompression sickness
  • Contact sports, such as ice hockey, soccer, basketball and volleyball
  • Activities that pose a high risk of falling — such as downhill skiing, in-line skating, gymnastics, and horseback riding
  • Activities that could cause you to hit water with great force, such as water skiing, surfing and diving
  • Exercise at high altitude
  • Activities that could cause you to experience direct trauma to the abdomen, such as kickboxing
  • Hot yoga or hot Pilates
 If you do exercise at a high altitude, make sure you know the signs and symptoms of altitude sickness, such as headache and nausea. We’ve covered pregnant women who have faced backlash for weightlifting, running marathons, ice skating, or just exercising a lot, as a lot of celebs who do so are shamed online about.

We haven’t heard from any response from Herbal Essences to their well-meaning campaign.  Maybe they’ll just let it blow over.

Celebs Currently Carrying Twins Celebrate #BumpDay

Two celeb moms who are carrying twins celebrated this year’s #BumpDay campaign on Wednesday, September 13, “to encourage people around the world to support all mothers by advocating for healthy pregnancies and safe deliveries.”

My Name Is Earl’s  expectant mama Jaime Pressly, who is pregnant with twin boys, posted an updated photo of her growing belly.

“830 women a day die worldwide from preventable issues during pregnancy,” Pressly captioned a black -and-white photo on Instagram cradling her bump.

She added: “A Healthy pregnancy can set a child up for a healthy future. Celebrate #BumpDay with @IMC_Worldwide & @WhatToExpect.”

Lady Antebellum lead singer Hillary Scott, also expecting twins, participated as well.

“In honor of #bumpday, here’s my bump. Encouraging all the expectant mamas out there to take care of you and your baby(ies)! #maternalhealthis SO important,” she captioned her own photo.

In June, the My Name Is Earl star announced that she is expecting twin boys this fall with longtime beau Hamzi Hijazi.

Preasly’s newborns will join the actress’ 10-year-old son Dezi, whom she co-parents with ex Eric Calvo.

Scott’s twins will join big sister Eisele Kaye, who turned four in July.

Over the past two years, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, a leading brand in pregnancy and parenting, has worked closely with the International Medical Corps to raise awareness for global maternal health, through their #BumpDay initiative.

This year it took place on September 13, 2017 and involved celebrities and influencers sharing  pictures of their current and past pregnancies, statistics on the dangers of pregnancies and deliveries around the world, and encouraging their followers to join the conversation.

Sienna Miller previewed the day in a recent copy of PEOPLE magazine.

Hurricane Harvey: All the Celebs That Have Donated Relief

Kevin Hart, the comedic actor husband to one of our Bellyitch Bump Watch moms-to-be Enicko Parrish, has challenged his fellow celebs to donate $50,000 each to  Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Many have accepted the challenge.

I was going to share all the celebrities, including some of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch babes who have pledged or donated to help the Houston Hurricane Harvey survivors.

The big name celebs donating include Houstonian Beyoncé, Hillary Scott, and more but The Washington Post’s “Reliable Source” blog did a pretty comprehensive round up so I don’t need to reinvent the wheel.

Head on over to check it out! It’s good stuff?

 

4 Very Popular Recording Artists That Wrote Lyrics About Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss

Earlier this year, we blogged about the fact that Harry Styles‘ first single off his self-titled debut solo album, “Sign of The Times” is about a woman dying in childbirth  and this week, we reminded you that Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott penned “Thy Will”to to help herself cope with her 2016 miscarriage.

But did you know there have been a couple of famous rappers who have also released songs with lyrics about pregnancy loss, fertility and miscarriage?

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter might just takes the prize for doing it the most.

In his recent song, 4:44, off the same-titled album, the platinum-selling chart-topper seemingly blames himself for his wife’s Beyonce’s miscarriages and losses by rapping, “I apologize for all the stillborns/ ‘Cause I wasn’t present, your body wouldn’t accept it.”

It’s more likely he was being colloquial and was probably referencing the miscarriages and not stillborn which occur in less than 1% of all pregnancies and happens when a baby is born deceased after 20 weeks gestation.

Later on in that same song, he raps about the praises of having twins, naturally, an acknowledgment is probably an indicator that the duo were anticipating getting help with their fertility from science via IVF.

“Look, I apologize often womanize / Took for my child to be born / See through a woman’s eyes / Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song / I don’t deserve you,” he rapped.

This is not the first time the biz mogul has penned lyrics about pregnancy loss. In 2012, his song “Glory” also addressed a miscarriage Beyonce had before the couple found success and finally welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy Carter.

“False alarms and false starts /All made better by the sound of your heart / All the pain of the last time / I prayed so hard it was the last time,” he opens up in the song.

Later on in the song, he raps, “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic We was afraid you’d disappear, but nah, baby, you magic,” referring to the fear that Blue would have been miscarried too.

Tender huh?

Female rapper Nicki Minaj also seemingly opened up  about a child she lost either to abortion or miscarriage in her 2014 song “All Things Go” on her album “The Pinkprint.

While referencing her baby as an angel watching over her baby brother Micaiah, (who she calls Caiah), she raps:  “I want Caiah to go to college just to say we did it,” she raps about her younger brother Micaiah then adds, “My child with Aaron, would’ve been 16 any minute / So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them / It’s like he’s Cai’s little angel looking over him.”

In a Rolling Stones article published that year also, the Queens native reveals that she had an abortion at age 15 and that she remains haunted by it:

Minaj’s first love was an older guy from Queens she dated while attending the prestigious Manhattan performing-arts high school LaGuardia. When she discovered she was pregnant, “I thought I was going to die,” she admits.

“I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.” Minaj says about the decision that “haunted me all my life,” though it was the right choice for her at the time. “It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”

It was never confirmed, but a few folks hypothesized she was singing bout that same child in that song.

Pregnancy Loss is still quite taboo so it’s great awareness building to have A-List stars include it in lyrics to their music, we think.
