Inside Keyshia Cole’s Baby Shower

R&B singer Keyshia Cole welcomed the impending arrival of her second child this past Saturday at an indoor/outdoor baby shower in Los Angeles.

Cole and her partner, aspiring rapper Niko Khale, are expecting their first child together. The new baby will join Cole’s s 10-year old son, Daniel Gibson Jr., from another relationship.

From the looks of a blue floral wall and blue balloons it appears she is expecting another baby boy.

Cole, who starred in three reality TV show on the BET Network and is currently filming a baby special, wore a white gown and a crown of blue flowers for the special occasion.

Attendees included her controversial birth mom Frankie Lons, her adoptive mother Yvonne Cole, Love & Hip Hop Hollywood stars Zell Swag and Paris Phillips.

“4 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!! Omg!!!!!!! I soooo ready to meet my little munchkin #2 FAMILY AND FRIENDS CAME OUT YESTERDAY AND I WANT TO SAY …………. THANK U SOOOO FOR COMING AND TRAVELING,” she captioned a series of photos from the event.

Family and vendors shared photos from the event on the Gram. The fact she tagged BET has us thinking the network was probably filming for her upcoming special as well.

Expecting Keyshia Cole is Filming a Baby Special for BET

With Keyshia Cole expecting to deliver her second child in two weeks, BET may be there to capture the final pregnancy moments for a Baby Special, the R&B singer recently shared she is filming for the cable network.

“Had an awesome time FIRST WEEK OF FILMING. KEYSHIA COLE IS COMING BACK TO BET!!!!!,” the singer captioned a recent series of Instagram photos of herself, including a couple with her 10-year old son Daniel Gibson Jr inside a baby store with cameras in tow. “But this time she’s bringing Something SPECIAL! A BABY SPECIAL.”

The former reality TV star was dressed in a bump bursting yellow top with distressed denim maternity jeans in the pics. She is expecting with boyfriend and aspiring rapper Niko Hale.

This would be Cole’s fourth foray into reality TV.

Her first was a hit for BET, Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is, which originally aired in 2006 and was one of the most watched shows and focused on her strained relationship with her biological mom, Frankie.

Follow ups included  Keyshia & Daniel: Family First with estranged husband Daniel Gibson, and Keyshia Cole: All In with her extended family.

BET has not yet confirmed the show news nor the premiere date.





Keyshia Cole In Hot Water Over Fake Pregnancy Announcement

Keyshia Cole is embroiled in a slight controversy over a fake pregnancy announcement she made recently, she said in response to being body shamed.

The R&B singer,  responsible for big hits like “Love” and “I Should Have Cheated,” told fans last week that she was expecting.

“PreggoInMyFashionNovaFit #CongratulationsAreInOrder,” she captioned an Instagram pic posing in a cute snakeskin number.

Then, a few days later, Cole, who is mom to one son, Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr., with ex-husband and former NBA star Daniel Gibson, fessed up and apologized for intentionally misleading fans.

The joke caused a lot of her fans to accuse the petite star of playing the prank for attention, but she flipped the outrage by pointing fingers at her social media fans for making her feel bad about weight gain.

“I kinda apologize for #trolling… telling y’all I was #preggo,” she explained in a follow-up Instagram post. “Buuuuuuut y’all need to stop body shamming me and saying I’m pregnant every other day.”

She claims the constant speculation “hurts my feelings,” adding, “thought it was sweet that you all were excited about the news tho.”

While some fans who have had fertility problems slammed her for making light of a serious matter, others stated they understood her frustration.

2017 BET Awards Trends: 90s Comebacks, Africa, Platinum Blonde and Babies

The 2017 BET Awards went down at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. I confess that I only got a chance to catch the end as I was heading to the beach to celebrate my eldest kid’s birthday and didn’t settle in to our suite until the show was well into its fourth and final hour! But I must say, that I thorougly enjoyed the singing chops of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Tamar Braxton who did an excellent job performing her new song, “My Man” on stage.

Tameka Tiny Cottles Harris, LaTocha and Tamika Scott and Kandi Burruss of 1990s girl group Xscape reuniting soon for a tour

Sadly, I missed a couple of our other bumpwatch alums, Kandi Buruss and Tameka “Tiny” Harris perform with their 1990s R&B girl group, Xscape

img_7715

The duo joined fellow members LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott in a medley of their hits on stage since breaking up as a group 18 years ago. It was the first of two explosive 90s R&B performances. The New Edition tribute and performances later blew me away!

Xscape will document their work as they prepare to perform at the 2017 Essence Festival. The docuseries, titled Xscape: Still Kickin’ It, premieres this fall on Bravo.

WATCH:

I noticed some fashion and hair trends beginning with the blunt platinum bob LaTocha Scott and Braxton wore. Singer-Actress Kat Graham who plays Jada Pinkett-Smith in the new movie All Eyez on Me, rapper and star of Love & Hip Hop: New York Cardi B and our other bumpwatch alum Blac Chyna  all did the blunt blonde bob.

And platinum blonde, in general,  had a big showing  on Tiny’s daughter Zonnique, who is also a recording-artist. She wore her hair in that shade as did Lateysha Grace, a German transplant who has been on three seasons of MTV show The Valleys.

Clockwise: Lateysha Grace, Zonnique, Cardi B and Blac Chyna in platinum blonde hair.

It was also cool to see so many parents bring their children to the show. DJ Khaled actually brought his son Asahad on stage with him during his performance. It reminded me of all the NBA babies at their dads’ games.

Jamie Foxx had his daughter Annalise help him present on stage and Future got his daughter Londyn a matching bedazzled mask to wear in honor of his popular new single “Mask Off” which he later performed that night with a cameo from Kenderick Lamar. Another big winner was Chance the Rapper whose mom accompanied him to the show.

Speaking of Winners. Beyonce was a BIG winner taking home the most awards for Best Female R&B Performer, Viewers’ Choice, Video of the Year for her song “Sorry” (which tied with Bruno Mars) and is off her album Lemonade, which one for Album of the Year.  The director for “Sorry” won the for Best Director.

Her sister Solange  took home the Centric Award for her song “Cranes in the Sky” which also earned the star her first Grammy award earlier in the year.  Besides Solange, we spotted a few of our other Bumpwatch alums at the event including Keyshia Cole.

Speaking of Blac Chyna and Amber Rose. The two of them once famously attended back to back awards shows in 2015 hand in hand but last night came with other people, Chyna with other people.

We frequently spotlight what mom LaLa Anthony wears on arrival carpets and she did not disappoint.

Not a mom, but I love Yvette Nicole Brown‘s look and my African sister Issa Rae from her hit HBO Insecure.

I also want to shout out other aspects of Africa represented last night in the strapless Ankara  (West African) dresses worn by beauty blogger Jennie Jenkins and The Color Purple veteran actress  Margaret Avery and actress Nomzamo Mbatha‘s South African print trimmed dress and in South Sudanese model Duckie Thot, Sudanse vlogger Nikki Perkins and Afro German soap opera actress  Sandra Lambeck.

They’re Like A Lot of Us: 40 Celeb Women Who Had Unwed Pregnancies

Bellyitch Rewind

halle-natalie

About 4 years ago, we blogged about how tons of celebrities welcome babies with men they ar not married to and how they, unlike most women, are not shamed for it.

Several, like Heidi Klum and Kelis break up before the baby is even born. The mention is not to bash different lifestyle choices or situations but just to point out the prevalence of premarital pregnancy in Hollywood.

Of the several dozens women Bellyitch has “bumpwatched” since its inception in 2007, the lion’s share or bulk of them were technically single (though possibly attached or engaged) while pregnant.

 Also, to a certain extent, these blessings, each of them, are celebrated and cheered. Meanwhile, average non-celebrity women who have children out-of-wedlock are traditionally trashed, bashed and shamed, by society.
 It’s a double standard, no doubt. But alas, these are changing times and traditional notions and norms are altering too.
Here is a list of 40 celebrity women ( from our old post in 2013, there have been many more since then) who got pregnant before going down the aisle, including some that didn’t even want a ring, and some that are still happily single (in no particular order):
1. Kim Kardashian

2. Salma Hayek

3. KimZolciak

4. Amber Rose

5. Victoria Beckham

6. Kelis

7. Emma Bunton

8. Halle Berry

9. Natalie Portman

10. Jennifer Hudson

11. Snooki

12. Lauryn Hill

13. Kristin Cavallari

14. Melanie Brown

15. Heidi Klum

16. Fantasia Barrino

17. Isla Fisher

18. Nia Long

19. Drew Barrymore

20. Yandy Smith

21. Kate Hudson

22. Jill Scott

23. Britney Spears

24. Nicole Richie

25. Kate Winslet

26. Alicia Keys

27. Jessica Simpson

28. Keyshia Cole

29. Michelle Williams

30. Lauren London

31. January Jones

32. Miranda Kerr

33. Kourtney Kardashian

34. Nivea

35. Jamie Lyn Spears
