It’s been a minute since we dedicated a post to celebrity bumps and new baby arrivals.

Congrats are in order for singer Meaghan Trainer and her husband, who welcomed their first child.

The “All About the Bass” singer announced the birth on Valentine’s Day.

“This sweet baby boy’s due date was today on Valentine’s Day💝 We got to meet him Monday, Feb 8th! We are SO IN LOVE Thank you @darylsabara for the best Valentine’s gift ever! Welcome to the world Riley!” Trainor wrote.

Bravo TV star Scheanna Shay of Vanderpump Rules who is expecting her first child, a Rainbow baby, conceived after a loss posted photos of her babymoon trip in Hawaii on social.

The petite reality TV star announced in October that she was expecting her first child with her boyfriend after suffering a series of miscarriages.

The impending birth is part of a Vanderpump Rules baby boom.

Former castmember Stassi Schroeder and her husband Beau Clark welcomed a baby girl named Hartford Charlie Rose Clark on Thursday, Jan. 7.

Brittany Cartwright and husband Jax Taylor are also expecting their first child, a baby boy.

Meanwhile, fellow castmember Lala Kent is expecting a girl with her fiance with Hollywood exec Randall Emmett.

It’s another baby boy for Kelly Rowland and her husband Tim Witherspoon! The “K” singer’s family grew by one when baby boy Noah Jon was born last month, joining the couple’s older brother Titan.

“My happy. My happy place,” she captioned a photo of herself in bed cradling her newborn with his big brother gently touching his head.

Congrats All!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Expecting Their 2nd Child, A Rainbow Baby

There’s a baby on the way for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The couple, who wed in May 2018, are expecting their second child together. The exciting news was announced on Sunday — Valentine’s Day — via the couple’s friend and photographer Misan Harriman. Harriman shared a sweet black and white photo of Meghan and Harry gazing lovingly at each other while lounging in a field of grass.

The sweet photo was taken via a remote photoshoot and was shot by Harriman using an iPad.

Meghan’s happy news comes after she revealed in November of last year that she suffered a miscarriage in July 2020. “Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” Meghan wrote in an essay for The New York Times on Nov. 25.

The pregnancy announcement also comes as Meghan and Harry continue to adjust to life in the U.S. after officially stepping down from their roles as senior royals last year. The couple made the decision out of a desire to focus on their family. Meghan also recently won her privacy and copyright infringement case against Associated Newspapers last week.

Peek Inside Mandy Moore’s Nursery {GET THE LOOK}

If I were having a baby, I would definitely decorate his or her room in black and brown as opposed to traditional colors for babies like pastel pink and powder blue.

I love the natural earthtones of the nursery that designer Sarah Sherman Samuel created for actress Mandy Moore who is expecting her first child in coming weeks, a baby boy, with husband and Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith.

Samuel shared glimpse of the nursery in her Instagram stories as captured by E!

It included a black and white custom wall mural, natural materials, oak, wood and tan furnishings and decorations and a canopy!

Moore re-posted the story on her own story.

It is absolutely gorgeous!

It inspired me to create a mood board. (like Babylist’s below)

If you are expecting and haven’t yet settled on a theme for your baby’s nursery, I invite you to consider emulating the look of Moore’s.

You can start with a crib. I love the Larkin LARKIN BLACK METAL CRIB by CRATE AND BARREL
Outfit it with a black and white print fitted sheet like Pottery Barn’s COCO ORGANIC CRIB FITTED SHEET

Hang framed artwork featuring a brown animal. I like the fox in this white framed watercolor sketch.
Add seating like AllModern.com’s Mellinger Rocking Chair
Invest in a top quality dresser like Carson Carrington’s Gammelstaden Mid-century 6-drawer Dresser 

Make sure you add throw pillows covered in prints like 18 inch Birth Throw Pillow Shell
Carpet can be an allergen trap so hardwood floors are best for nursery and a nice rug in the color scheme would add flare and insulation. The Alfresco ALF rug is perfect.
Accent it with a brown table lamp like the Poldina PRO Rechargeable LED Table Lamp by Ai Lati Lights

Halsey Is Expecting Her 1st Child, a Rainbow Baby

Singer Halsey is expecting her first child after a series of miscarriages and a history of fertility struggles.

Surprise!” the “Without Me” recording artist captioned an Instagram photo on Wednesday, January 26, debuting her baby bump while wearing a crocheted rainbow top to reflect the fact that she is having a “Rainbow” baby, a child conceived after pregnancy loss.

A few years ago, the New Jersey shared openly that she had frozen her eggs following a lifetime of struggilng with endometriosis.

When she shared a tweet version of the photo, she captioned the photo,” my rainbow”.

“Doing ovarian reserve is important for me, because I’m fortunate enough to have that as an option, and I need to be aggressive about protecting my fertility [and] about protecting myself,” Halsey said in April 2018 during an appearance on the TV show The Doctors.“Reproductive illness is so frustrating because it can really make you feel like less of a woman.”

She added: “You don’t feel sexy, you don’t feel proud, and you don’t feel like there’s much hope, so taking these measures to make sure that I get to have a hopefully bright future and achieve the things that I want to achieve by doing the ovarian reserve is really important.”

Before then, she was forced to choose between a loss and work.

Right before a 2015 perfomance, she told Rolling Stone that she lost a baby.

“I’m like, ‘I have to cancel this show!” the “Bad at Love” singer said in the July 2016 interview. “And everyone’s kind of like, ‘Well, it’s Vevo LIFT, and it’s three-million impressions, so … no one knew what do to. It’s the angriest performance that I’ve ever done in my life. That was the moment of my life where I thought to myself, ‘I don’t feel like a f–king human being anymore.’ This thing, this music, Halsey, whatever it is that I’m doing, took precedence and priority over every decision that I made regarding this entire situation from the moment I found out until the moment it went wrong. I walked offstage and went into the parking lot and just start throwing up.”

And she was hardest on herself over the loss.

“I wasn’t drinking. I wasn’t doing drugs. I was f–king overworked — in the hospital every couple of weeks because I was dehydrated, needing bags of IVs brought to my greenroom. I was anemic, I was fainting,” she revealed. “My body just broke the f–k down.”

It is the first child with her boyfriend, Alev Aydin.

“Heart so full, I love you, sweetness,” Aydin posted in the comment section of her post to which Halsey replied, “I love you!!!!! And I love this mini human already!”

It’s been a long time coming.

Halsey told The Guardian in February 2020 that becoming a mom was “looking like something that’s gonna happen for me. That’s a miracle.”

In her Manic album notes for Apple Music, Halsey shared that her song “More” is about her struggles with reproductive health.

“I’ve been really open about my struggles with reproductive health, about wanting to freeze my eggs and having endometriosis and things like that,” she wrote. “For a long time, I didn’t think that having a family was something I was going to be able to do, and it’s very, very important to me.”

“Then one day my OB-GYN tells me it’s looking like I maybe can, and I was so moved. It felt like this ascension into a different kind of womanhood,” added Halsey. “All of a sudden, everything is different. I’m not going to go tour myself to death because I have nothing else to do and I’m overcompensating for not being able to have this other thing that I really want. Now, I have a choice. I’ve never had a choice before.” 

The songwriter was spotted out and about with Aydin in October 2020. Prior to her with Aydin, she was romantically linked to singer Yungblud and actor Evan Peters and dated G-Eazy on and off from 2017 to 2018.

Congrats!

The Grammy-winning recording artist also shared with New York-based author Dawnie Walton how the pandemic played into the baby number 2 makign process, saying that she and hubby Tim Weatherspoon, “had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, ‘Let’s see what happens.'”

But also top of mind was her fans who she knew had been asking her to produce a new album.

The thought “Oh my god, my fans are gonna be so disappointed .… They wanted an album first, but they got a baby!” then added,  “and I was like, ‘I have to figure this out so they get both.'”

The super mom is figuring out how to do both and says she is in fact, working on new music!

“I want it to feel very organic, coming from me,” she said about her music, adding that she likes “to touch on everything” with her songs.

While the gender of the baby has not been revealed, she did speak on the Breonna Taylor Grand Jury decision to not charge the officers in her killing and how that impacts her own parenting and child rearing of a black son.

“I promised to protect my kid. That was the main thing I was thinking about: protecting this little innocence,” she said when reflecting on these deaths.

Well said! Congrats!
