Remy Ma and Papoose Welcome Daughter

Congratulations to Rapper and Love and Hip Hop: New York star Remy Ma  and her husband Papoose who welcomed their first child together, a daughter.

The “All the Way Up” performer, real name Reminisce Smith, shared the news on her Instagram.

“It’s a girl!” she exclaimed in writing on a pink background on Friday, December 14.  “The Golden Child is here!!! Thank you @papoose for making me the happiest wife in the planet #BlackLove #RemAndPap.”

She added“#ShesMADDDDcute.” The proud papa, real name Shamele Mackie, also posted her pink announcement but revealed the baby arrived after a “tough labor.”

Based on the photo he posted on his Instagram the day, it appears the pregnancy was induced and/or scheduled. 

He Instagrammed a black and white photo of the two of them with the caption, “Golden Child Eve!!!!!” 

This is Remy Ma’s second child.  She has a 14-year old son Jayson from a previous relationship. He has two daughters and a son from previous relationship including 14-year old daughter Dejanae Mackie.

Expecting Remy Ma and Papoose Hit Up ‘The Real’ to Talk All Things Baby

Expecting rapper Remy Ma and her husband Papoose hit up The Real Talk to talk all things baby, pregnancy and parenting. The couple, who is expecting their first child together after suffering a miscarriage, also shared that they plan to have more children.

When Tamera Mowry-Housley asked them about it, the Love And Hip Hop star gave a detailed reply that included insights on her fertility struggles and successes:

“Ok, so when we did IVF, we did two cycles. The first cycle, we only got one egg and I was nervous. I was like, let’s just do it again so we’ll have more. We got one again the second time, so we had two. One was a boy, one was a girl, but I didn’t want to know which one. Whichever one was first, put that one back first and then the other one. So I told [Papoose], if he behaves and doesn’t spoil the golden child like he’s planning to do, we have a good baby and he accepts my nanny stuff and all of that, maybe somewhere around 2020, we’ll do the other one.”

The couple are planning to star and debut their very own spin off reality TV show called Remy and Papoose: Meet the Mackies. They also released a new song about their impending arrival called “The Golden Child”, a term they’ve been using to describe the baby they conceived after some struggles. They performed it on the show.

Part 2

Remy Ma is Coasting Into Her Final Trimester Still Fly!

VH1s  Love and Hip Hop star and Rapper Remy Ma (real name Reminisce Smith) is about 6 months along in her first pregnancy with husband Shamele “Papoose” Mackie.

However, the pretty cocoa-complexioned vixen and business woman has not yet “popped”, if you will, and is sporting still a pretty chic and sveltish figure in her cute collection of clothing.

Judging from the pics the Dark and Lovely spokeswoman and brand ambassador has posted on her social media pages, you can barely tell that she and her hubby of  10 years will be welcoming their first child by year’s end.

They suffered a very much public miscarriage and since she became pregnant, Papoose has had a hard time containing his excitement about becoming a parent.

The couple announce the baby news to guests attending their garden vow renewal ceremony earlier this year.

Remy Ma already has a 17-year old son Jace from a previous relationship and  Papoose has a daughter 13-year old Dejanae Mackie.

Rapper Remy Ma’s Hubby Is The Most Excited Expecting Celeb Dad Around

Rapper Remy Ma‘s husband Shamele “Papoose” Mackie could possibly be the most excited expecting celeb dad around by the looks of his social media posts about having his first child with his wife. The Love and Hip Hop star announced in July this year that she is expecting and the baby is due in December.

The “Melanin Magic” performer posted recently about giving her spouse a hard time about his ecstatic joy, meanwhile he jokes about her posing for photos in social media in a way to shield her bump.

In an adorable video, Remy Ma(real name: Reminisce Smith) performer shared on Instagram, she said that even though he was giving her grief, she felt elated to see her husband so excited about her pregnancy. This is true especially given the couple suffered a miscarriage (or maybe more) before undergoing  IVF treatment to get pregnant successfully.

“I give him a hard time because if I don’t he will OD more than he already does??‍♀️buttttttt in all actuality, there’s no better feeling than your husband being this excited about your pregnancy,” she captioned the vid. ” We love you Daddy @papoosepapoose ?-from RemyMom & “The Golden Child”

Watch the video above to see her bump! 

Fans ate up the endearing interaction

“If my man don’t act like this when I get pregnant, then I don’t want him,” one wrote, while another sweetly added, “Congratulations! Y’all love each other so much! I just love it!”

The couple announced the news of the pregnancy during a garden vow renewal ceremony.

“Oh yea…and then this happened,” Remy captioned her post, discussing her weight loss and road to motherhood. “I’ve been eating right, working out, and preparing for this for almost a year. We are so happy; thank you to everyone that prayed for us and sent blessings our way.”

Nice!

Remy Ma is Almost 5 Months Pregnant

Rapper Remy Ma casually announced during her lavish vow renewal with her husband Papoose (real name: Shamele Mackie) that she was expecting her first child after suffering a miscarriage, infamously referenced during her rap beef with Nicki Minaj  last year.

In the caption to a photo taken by photographer Daniel J. Vasquez, the “Melanin Magic” singer, added the hashtags, “#16weeks #BabyMackie.”

The renewal ceremony itself was an intimate affair with all the guests wearing white and playing Jenga, oversized Connect Four and other lawn games at the garden event.

Papoose followed up with his own  announcement by sharing his excitement:

“Y’all already know I’m on level 1 thousand! Man I almost told y’all so many times! But my wife would’ve killed me. She wanted to wait until after the first trimester!” he captioned a video from the formal portraits taken during the ceremony. “Words can’t describe my happiness. I’m just working/building on myself… So I can be the best father possible! God is good #blacklove.”

Since then, he has posted several times sweet shares about his excitement about finally becoming a father.

She has a teenage college-bound son named Jace and he has a teen daughter Dejanae, both from previous relationship.

Congrats to them both!

Sources close to the couple confirmed with the celebrity gossip site that Chloe Green and Meeks have been together since last June while Meeks was still married to the mom of his children and wife of 8 years.

Meeks, who was signed to a modeling agency and has walked in several fashion shows, only  recently settled child support with ex wife Melissa Meeks.

The Top 10 Names Millennials Parents May Give Their Babies This Year

Earlier this year, Nameberry came out with its list of top 100 Trending baby names that the popular baby naming site predicts will be most used. Just getting around now, albeit 6 months later, to check out the list and I like a lot of the names on it.

After combing through it, I picked the top 10 Millennial friendly names I think will be most attractive to young couples under 30 and the reasons why I think so:

Thor

  •  Because that new Avengers movie is coming out and it will inspire all the Superhero geeks out there.

Yara

  • The actress, Black’ish‘s Yara Shahidi, is beautiful, smart and on every magazine cover and red carpet looking powerful and smart; and she’s going to Harvard. Nice legacy to want your little girl to aspire to.

Wilder

  • This name just screams Millennial friendly to me!

Remy

  • Rapper Remy Ma famously feuded with Nicki Minaj this year and for all her effort in breaking the internet after her diss tape came out, she won a coveted Best Female Rapper Award at this year’s BET Awards besting lots of great vet rappers including her arch nemesis Minaj herself. For everyone who wants their daughter to overcome tough times and take on Goliath of the world, yes to Remy.

Loyal

  • Like Royal but less douchey. Also, it is unique and has tons of personality.

Echo

  • Because who doesn’t love a competitor to Siri. Besides Amazon.com is taking over the world and naming your kid after one of its newest signature devices will make you feel invincible too, maybe.

Fiona

  • Classic yet not too pretentious.

Frank

  • For a boy and similar reason.

Cassius

  • Because reality TV housewives competed over Cash and Cassius sounds maganaminous. Also, anyone nostalgic and want to remember Mohammed Ali may want to pay homage to him this way by naming their kid after Ali’s birth name.

Arrow

  • Another superhero fan’s dream name.

This Mom’s Maternity Shoot with Her Egg Donor is Hauntingly Beautiful

In a very moving personal essay in Glamour, Texas doctor Dr. Shannon M. Clark talks about her struggles to get pregnant after age 40. Clark is a maternal-fetal medicine specialist and works with high-risk pregnancies and knows very well of the challenges of pregnancy women of advance maternal age face.

As Dr. Clark feared, she too faced difficulty. After miscarrying her first pregnancy, and undergoing multiple cycles of failed IVF, Clark and her husband, René Harris, decided to turn to an egg donor to achieve their dream of parenthood.  It worked. Clark gave birth to healthy twins last year, Remy Vaughn and Sydney Renee.

Before that welcoming moment, she decided to have a very unique type of maternity photo shoot. In a set of moving photos, photographer Cheryl Whitney-Huebner of Image Studios Group perfectly captured Dr. Clark when she was just 20 weeks pregnant and barely showed signs of a baby bump.

But what was haunting, yet beautiful about the shoot and the resulting images is that they also featured Clark’s egg donor, Tara. It was Tara’s eggs that Harris fertilized and Dr. Clark carried to term.

In one photo, Tara hands Clark a small wrapped gift box which is a metaphoric representation of motherhood. Both women are wearing long white dresses with lace accents in the sleeve which, while juxtaposed with the rustic background, has its own symbolism. Clark later hands the box to Harris in another shot.

the-gift

There’s a lot to unpack but Clark offers some insight in her essay.

About meeting Tara, she writes:

She was so beautiful and gracious and made us feel so at ease. We spent an afternoon taking photos and casually talking about my pregnancy. Again, I studied her face, her hair, her eyes, her walk, her voice, and her mannerisms, just trying to memorize what one day I may see in my babies in case I would never see her again. Little did I know that that would be the only way we were able to formally commemorate my pregnancy.

Whitney-Huebner’s website invites potential clients to “close their eyes and picture” how they want to be photographed and what images they are drawn “to make you feel something.” In this shoot, Clark came up with the idea but Whitney-Huebner brought it to life by selecting the locale, setting and staging it. It definitely gives of an emotional feeling.

“Nothing about my journey to become a mother has been typical. I may not have been able to experience all of the typical things that a pregnant woman experiences, but what I do have are beautiful photos of my barely there belly bump with my husband and the woman who made my dream of becoming a mother a reality,” Clark shares in her piece. “I also have two beautiful babies who make every tear I ever cried worth it. For that, I will forever be thankful.”

I often daydreamed about what it would be like to be a #mom. There were plenty of moments when I thought it just wasn’t going to happen for me. Then these two came along and changed everything. My #life will never be the same. My #heart will never be the same. And for that I will be forever #grateful. My one goal at the end of every day for the rest of my days will be to make these #babies as #happy as they make me ❤#twins #twinsofinstagram #motherhood #family #babygirl #babyboy #siblings #brotherandsister #love #infertility #babiesafter35 #babiesafter40 #ivf #donoregg #thankful #pregnancyafterloss #imtheluckyone #stuff4multiples #worththewait. #twinstyle by @knight_jess of @macandmia. A special thank you to @roberto_ganoza photography for documenting our journey in pictures ?

BumpWatch: Marion Cotillard looks Regal Promoting ‘Assasin’s Creed’ w/Cast

marion

We are always happy to see when moms-to-be defeat the stereotype of the laid up pregnant woman. A lot of the celebrities we feature while pregnant spend a lot of their pregnancy during very busy promotion tours.

So is true for French actress Marion Cotillard who is simultaneously promoting her new movie Allied with co-star Brad Pitt, and her action thriller Assassin’s Creed.

The Inception star joined some of her castmates at the NYC premiere of the movie at  AMC Empire 25 theater on December 13, 2016.

She went glam in an eggplant and midnight embroidered cape by Andrew Gn which also looked quite regal. It was paiered with a loose black fishtail gown from the same designer. We love the side swept loose waves and the deep purple lip.

Michael Fassbender, Essie Davis, and Jeremy Irons also attended the “Assassin’s Creed” New York Premiere.

We saw the preview for this one! It looks really good as well!

This is Cotillard’s second child with longtime partner, Guillaume Canet. The couple has a son named Marcel born in 2011.

We’re Not Worthy: Jeremy Scott Designed a Gold-Trimmed $1700 Stroller

Luxury baby goods, which includes a stroller, car seat, and baby carrier, continue to be coveted by the rich and famous.

I continue in my research to catch up on the latest and hottest strollers since I used to publish a preeminent first-of-its kind biennial Most Expensive Stroller blog post series,  started in 2007.

jeremy scott stroller

I have discovered that designer Jeremy Scott has bedazzled (as Slate magazine put it) a high end stroller made by the luxe brand Cybex.  Essentially, Scott added his trademark gold angel wings and polished gold frame not the wheels and that alone jacked up the normally-priced  $1,000 stroller to close to $1700!

Wowza!

The type of folks that will fork over that much for a stroller, even as an investment piece, won’t blink twice at that premium price.

Cybex, which makes strollers, car seats ($369.95) , baby carriers ($129.95) and other baby transportation products, is the choice for the A-List celebs. Cate Blanchet, Keira Knightly, Fergie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Gisele Bundchen, Miroslava DUma, Liv Tyler, Gwen Stefani and David Beckham have all been photographed pushing their tops in one these strollers.

But what struck me most was the branding. I mean I felt as though I have to be a great looking svelte Manhattan mom with great skin, great hair and a hot husband to own one of these things.

In the US, a lot of the Giggle stores carry it in the retail stores and online so the line is accessible even if you don’t live near the right zipcode.
