Rappers featured prominently in a roundup of pregnancy related news, including some unexpected and unusual references related to Drake and Lil Nas X’s respective album releases.

Kylie Jenner confirmed what’s been speculated for weeks: She’s pregnant with baby No. 2.

She appears to film boyfriend Travis Scott’s reaction to the happy news as he can be seen hugging her in the bathroom.

Kylie Jenner with pregnant belly exposed in maternity share announcing her second pregnancy

And the hip hop community had a few odes to pregnancy recently.

Rapper Cardi B and her husband Offset from the rap group Migos welcomed their second child, a son.

The “Up” singer shared a tender Instagram photo of her and Offset sitting on a hospital bed cradling their newborn. She captioned the photo, “9/4/21” with a set of three emoticons including a blue heart, dinosaur and tiger.

The couple’s 3-year old daughter Kulture Kari was born on July 18th after they secretly married in September 2017.

Similar to her first, Cardi kept most of her second pregnancy secret, this time revealing it this past June during a performance at the BET Awards in June.

Rapper Drake released his much-anticipated latest album, “Certified Lover Boy” with a cover art that features a grid of 12 multiracial “pregnant woman” emojis wearing differently colored shirts.

British artist Damien Hirst designed the cover which Internet sleuths have stated looks to be a cross between the artist’s Spot Paintings with monochromatic canvases covered in rows of dots painted in complimentary colors and colourful dots and his work, sculptures of pregnant women is what seems to have inspired Drake’s CLB.

Rapper Lil Nas X stirred up some noise when he decided to do a maternity style photo to announce the birth of his latest album project. In photos, featured in a PEOPLE magazine spread, the “Montero” performer wears a prosthetic bump.

There was a lot of buzz and chatter over the social media display, including among women advocates who said it make a mockery of pregnancy, child birth and fertility struggles.

Maybe to difuse some of the hate, the “Old Town Road” singer invited expecting women to share a photo of themselves and their bump along with their CashApp account

The rapper revealed her pregnancy at the 2021 BET Awards Sunday night (June 27) while onstage with Migos during their performance.

The announcement, broadcast from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, is the second time Cardi has used live television to confirm she’s pregnant.

Cardi B, Kehlani, Beyonce Queen Moms Win at 2019 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards

At last week’s 2019 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel, brand new mom and singer/songwriter Kehlani walked the carpet and paid tribute to awards for songwriting.

She won an award for her work on the reigning hip hop queen Cardi B‘s song “Ring” which she is featured.

Speaking of Cardi, she got to add ASCAP Songwriter of the Year to her long list of history making awards because she is the first female rapper to receive that acknowledgment.

“I just want to say I’m very grateful,’ Cardi B began after accepting the award from ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. “Sometimes I feel like I’m not doing too much because when it comes to female rappers, it’s like you’re never doing too much or they’re always pitting you against another female rapper. People on my team are like ‘Cardi, you’re crazy. You won a Grammy. Cardi, all your songs are charting.’

“[With] everybody saying I’m not this or that,” she continued, “sometimes I gotta see it and feel it for myself because it’s hard. Everybody always wants to say I made it because of this or made it because of that. I made it because I worked my ass off… Thank you very much, ASCAP. This is an honor for me.”

During a brief red carpet interview with Variety magazine, the songwriter-turned-singer talked about how she found out Cardi B was expecting before the “Bodak Yellow” singer had announced the news to the world and how it motivated the then-future mom.

She said: “I started as a writer, then ventured into being an artist,” she said. “It’s really important what [ASCAP] does for people, honoring them in a way they don’t normally get honored. A lot of the behind-the-scenes people get their money and they’re cool with it, but then they’re like, ‘Dang, it’d be nice sometimes to get some love really for the art of what I do.’”She also recalled a fun memory of the “Ring” video shoot. “I kind of had the idea that she [Cardi] was pregnant — but not knowing,” she remembered with a laugh. “Then seeing this cute little tiny baby bump peeking through, and taking a little woman note in my head like, ‘Congratulations, girl!’”

Another Bumpwatch alum, Beyonce, also won for co-writing “Apeshit” with her husband and Cardi’s on/off hubby Offset and his fellow Migos group member, Quavo.

Congrats to all!

Kylie Jenner and Cardi B Mom Shamed Over Nails

Kylie Jenner and Cardi B are queen of setting and staying on top of trends so of course the new moms are rocking the latest in ornate super long coffin cut nails.

However, that penchant for showing off their latest exquisitely designed hands is making them target for a new type of mommy shaming.

When the Kyie Lipkit mogul posted a recent photo of herself with daughter Stormi while showing off her gorgeous pink ombre nails, several fans replied criticizing the danger the nails could pose to a baby.

“Poor Stormi. I bet she has all over her tiny body bruises and scars from her mother’s witch nails,” one replied. “how do you look after her with those nails?”

Aye! It never ends does it?

Cardi B Breastfeeds A Baby in New Controversial Video

In her newly released music video for her latest hit single, “Money“, rapper Cardi B promotes breastfeeding by featuring shots of herself nursing an infant. Well more likely it is a doll and not her 6-month old daughter Kulture with estranged hubby Offset.

The shots in the video that was dropped on Friday, December 21 of her holding a baby to her breast dressed in high fashion couture amidst is set among  abundant glorious conspicuous consumption and female body glorification!

https://twitter.com/cardibthe_queen/status/1076206874243055622

The video is visually stimulating and the ornate costuming and setting inside a bank and I think a museum is bold but nothing you wouldn’t expect from a woman on top of her game and with a very generous music video budget.

She pays homage to photographer Thierry Mugler’s 1999 Playboy shoot, and Lil Kim while pole dancing and playing the piano naked.

People on Twitter noted it is reminiscent of Rihanna’s “Pour It Up” and Beyonce’s “Partition” videos.

It is definitely got people with talking with half of the people I saw on Twitter saying she is personifying feminism, empowering sex workers via all the images of strippers, while normalizing breastfeeding and the message that a woman can be a mom, career woman and have it all. 

Others are saying the breastfeeding images juxtaposed with so much “T &A” sets back the movement to normalize breastfeeding through declaring that the female breasts are not sexual objects but objects for nourishing a child.

Either way, the video is quite an exhibition. WATCH!

Last night was the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York, New York City on August 20.

Quite a few of our Bellyitch  Bumpwatch alums showed up and/or showed out with draw-dropping performances, on-stage antics, on the red carpet risks and MoonMan winning!

Jennifer Lopez gave an electrifying performance of a medley of her hits over the years before accepting the Video Vanguard Award, the first person of Latino heritage to win the coveted prize.

Cardi B surprised the audience by opening the show cradling what looked like a baby on stage

Many thought they would get the first glimpse of her infant girl Kultura with husband rapper Offset, but she later revealed it was a trophy.

Womp womp womp!!

Later in the evening, the “I Like It” rapper won three of several awards she was nominated for, Song of the Summer for “I Like It featuring Bad Bunny & J Balvin; Best new artist and Best Collaboration for “Dinero” Jennifer Lopez’s song with DJ Khaled Artist of the year.

She was nominated for Best hip hop, Artist of the Year, Best Latin album, also for Dinero and Song of the Year for “Finesse” with Bruno Mars

MTV Reality show and other Bellyitch alums Heidi Montag, Nicky Hilton, Nicole “Snooki” Palozzi and Audrina Partridge graces the red carpet also.

One fashion trend that stood out to me was the inptricate sheet organza I saw on singing sisters and Beyonce protege Chloe X Haile, comedic actress Tiffany Hadish and British singing phenom  Rita Ora.

 

And finally, winning the sex kitten awards: a chaps and chisel abs donning Teyana Taylor, Blac Chyna and red cat woman Amber Rose. 

New Mom Cardi B Drops Out of Bruno Mars 24K Tour

We always pause when celebrity new moms like Amal Clooney, Ivanka Trump. former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer when they announce plans to get back to work weeks after delivering, not fully aware of how much of a challenge that could be.

Cardi B is the latest new mama to fall victim to this phenomenon.

She had previously stated that despite being set to give birth in July, she still planned to remain on Bruno Mars‘ “24K Magic” and to take her newborn with her.

As we could expect, the Bodak Yellow performer announced that she will no longer be joining  Bruno’s tour.

“As of today I’ve decided I won’t be joining Bruno on tour this Fall,” the rapper wrote in a statement posted on Instagram Thursday night. “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”

The Invasion of Privacy album creator only delivered her baby girl Kulture three weeks ago and explained to her fans and followers  that she’s not ready to hit the road. Per her pediatrician’s advice, neither is her daughter.

“Not only am I just not ready physically, I’m not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road,” she wrote.

The “I Like It” songstress has not hired a nanny and  is not interested in being apart from her baby during her most formative first months.

“I hope you guys understand that this decision has been the hardest to make but I have to do what’s best for myself and my baby!” she finished off her post. “Thank you Bruno for being so supportive and understanding.”

Cardi shares her daughter with husband Offset, who is a member of the trio rap group, The Migos rapper, along with Quavo and Takeoff. He’ll be making the bread and perhaps missing baby’s first moments as he is sticking with plans to join Drake this summer on his North American tour, “Aubrey and the Three Amigos,” which was rescheduled to address production issues.

Peep Cardi B and Offset’s Daughter’s $4500 Crib



For a few years early in this blog’s life, I published an annual list of the most expensive strollers, cribs, baby and children’s clothes and maternity wear which I eventually compiled in a book called Bellyitch 100 (you can get it HERE!).

The most expensive crib on that list was made by Art for Kids and cost $4,400.

Cardi B‘s custom made crib for her and husband Offset‘s daughter Kulture surpasses that one. The rapper took to Instagram to show off the crib which according to Vogue’s research cost $4,500, retail.

“I didn’t want to set the crib up until we moved but Offset set it up while I was in the hospital,” she said. “It’s just so gorgeous.”

Thanks @premadonna87 ???

The crib’s designers, Kapesh Designs, said on Instagram that this exact one was custom made, but the fact Vogue could find a similar product in stock on their website proves that claim may not be entirely accurate.however, they had a similar product still in stock.

This little Princess’ crib adds to the crib’s of kids from other famous celebrities like Kim Kardashian West‘s  $4,500 Vetro Lucite crib for her brood (Beyoncé and Jay Z are also allegedly fans of the minimalist baby furniture), while Serena Williams posted a picture of her daughter’s rose gold crib by Incy Interiors to her Instagram story.
