Reese, Selma and Sarah’s ‘Cruel Intentions’ Reunion outing in PHOTOS

Three of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch Alums, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar reunited last Thursday, May 28 to see a parody of the trio’s 1999 cult classic hit movie Cruel Intentions.
 

From looks of the pics they and others shared of the outing in social media, the three celebrity moms looked as if they thoroughly enjoyed viewing the showing of The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions in LA.



During the performance, the trio took selfies and belted out songs singing alongside the cast. Audience members reported the trio lip synced to Verve‘s “Bittersweet Symphony”  and Natalie Imbruglia‘s 1997 hit “Torn”.

They also took selfies to capture the moment.

 

And reenacted that infamous kiss in the film between Blair and Gellar.

Afterwards, they toasted and sang Happy Birthday to the original movie’s director Roger Kumble who turned 49.

Though Reese looked like she was “not in that!” lol!

Game of Thrones’ Lena Heady is Preggers

King’s Landing may be crying that Queen Cersei Lannister is in prison but actress Lena Headey isn’t. She’s expecting a baby girl in 6 weeks time.

Baby sister will join big brother, 4-year-old Wylie, who Lena had with ex-husband Peter Loughran.

Rumor is the baby’s father is the Viper actor Pedro Pascal who played Oberyn Martell on Game of Thrones.

Both Pedro and Lena say that they are just friends. Lena who is one to shy away from excess publicity announced her pregnancy is the most poignant way.

Lena wrote an op-ed for Plan International USA‘s website stating that her daughter will have freedom of choice to be the person she wants to be which should be the human right for everyone.

At Bellyitch we fully agree!

Congrats Lena and baby girl Headey!

Another member of The Saturdays, Frankie Bridge is expecting

frankie
 
 
Our social media manager Chelsea Social reminded me that another member of the UK girl band The Saturdays is expecting: Franchesca Sandford Bridge and her husband Wayne Bridge will welcome their second child later this year. 
 
(Although we don’t generally “cover” Brit celebs as much, we previously “bump watched” her bandmate Rochelle Humes, partially because I thought Humes was half Sierra Leonean and I was born there. She has since reported that she has Jamaican roots but was born in Essex, and blames Wikipedia for the spread of misinformation.)
 

 

 
 
I think Frankie B is so beautiful and I love love her short thick hair.
 
The gorgeous Strictly Come Dancing (the original Brit version of US spinoff Dancing with the Stars) finalist announced the pregnancy on her Twitter page back in January and later shared the most adorable Instagram bump progression photo (above) at 5 months preggers.
 
 
Poor second time mama-to-be had it tough in her early months, suffering from  hyperemesis gravidarum, the same extreme morning sickness condition that Kate Middleton had for both er pregnancies.
 
The condition may have something to do with why the 6-month pregnant singer is so tiny this pregnancy. 
The Bridges and Afro-Brazilian Soccer (Football) legend Pele
 
I thought she looked super gorge for her last pregnancy even though she took a lot of ribbing for gaining healthy baby weight, UK LifestyleYahoo!  reported.
 
She has a healthy attitude about weight gain during pregnancy nonetheless and isn’t giving in to online bullies.
 
 
“Everyone expects you to stay a size six or eight during pregnancy and then go back to normal afterwards – but that’s not realistic,”she told Closer magazine. 
 
“People are too quick to judge. I couldn’t care less if I put on 4st with this one, you just deal with it each time. If I didn’t have hyperemesis gravidarum, I wouldn’t feel the need to eat carbs every day, but I have to otherwise I feel sick.”

Good Show!

Riley Curry steals spotlights at Mom’s Maternity shoots & Dad’s Press Conferences



NBA superstar Stephen Curry stole headlines recently not just for leading his Golden State Warriors to the NBA Finals but also for his 2-year old scene-stealing daughter Riley, who attended post-game press conferences with her dad.

The adorable tot also captured the spotlight during the recent family/maternity shoot she was in with dad and mom Ayesha Curry, who is expecting the family’s second child in July.

Watch Riley in action after the post game interview a couple weeks ago after the Warriors captured Game 1 of the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets.

And again after clinching the championship this week in Game 5:

Family is important to Curry who teared up last year when he won a spot on the Western Conferene All-Star roster, achieving a feat his dad Dell Curry, who was a 16 year league player, could never accomplish.

Bump Watch: Eudoxie Agnan Bridges, 9 months preggers, celebrates birthday

File this under missed! Happy Belated birthday to Fast and Furious actor and rapper Ludacris‘ African queen Eudoxie Agnan who celebrated her birthday back on May 13th with her hubby, her 13-year old step daughter Karma Bridges and a group of friends that included Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Monica Brown.

But the 9 months preggers med student and philanthropist also comes off in pics as being so “over” being pregnant.  She can barely force a smile in her latest Instagram pics.

Almost there, mama. Hold on! (smile)

Celeb Pro Surfer Bethany Hamilton’s pregnancy in 13 PHOTOS

Ever since celebrity pro surfer Bethany Hamilton Dirks announced  her pregnancy in an adorable video back in February, she has not stopped doing what she does best: shred the best waves!

The champion surfer is famously known for triumphantly recovering from a vicious 2003 shark attack that claimed her left arm. You cannot help but get infected with joy by simply scoping the awesome, fun and spirit-filled photos she shares regularly with her legions of fans and followers in social media.

And just like before, she’s treated her Twitter friends to a series of bump progression pics throughout her pregnancy…and most of them involved her being on a surfboard and riding a wave!

No surprise there given she told Huffington Post after her pregnancy announcement that she planned to surf as long as possible.

“I plan to surf as long as I can,” she said in the YouTube announcement. “Once the belly is pretty big, maybe I’ll mellow it out and spend more time swimming and enjoying the ocean.”

Whoa mama!

Add Hamilton to the long list of pregnant athletes who don’t let anything like incubating a baby get in the way of a sport and love right through the end of their respective pregnancies…like the weight lifter, the trapeze artist,  the air rifle Olympian, the ballerina, the marathon runner and others.

And when baby arrives,  Hamilton says she is prepared for the challenge!

“I often forget that I have one arm,” she said, “but when I think about it — a squirming baby and changing the diaper and just me and this squirming baby — it could be really challenging. I think that, how I live life now, I adjust and adapt to different things … I think there’s going to be things that will be very challenging with one arm, but I’ll just have to find my own way to take care of the baby … I’ll have to figure it out and be creative.”

On her due date next month, the beautiful Hamilton and her gorgeous surfer husband Adam are expecting the arrival of baby boy, their first, since marrying in 2013.

Adorbs!

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ saved this breastfeeding mom’s life

When young breastfeeding mom, Sarit Fishbaine, was told the lumps in her breast were just probably milk collection and not to worry about, she didn’t immediately get a second opinion. 
She was only 34. She wasn’t concerned. It was only after she saw an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, where a patient had similar issue – breast feeding, lumpy breasts, on set breast cancer – that Sarit realized a second opinion was worth it. 
That action saved her life.
