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
SingerHalsey 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.”
“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.
Nicki Minaj reached out to her 125 million Instagram fans on Saturday and gave them the greatest gift of all – the first pictures of her son.
TheBarbie Tingz rapper welcomed her first child with Kenneth Petty on 30 September but she had only shared a close up picture of her baby boy’s foot – until now.
“#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama. Wishing you guys a happy & prosperous New Year. Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me. Becoming a mom is by far the most fulfilling job I’ve ever taken on,” she wrote alongside six photos of her adorable baby wearing the most fashionable outfits.
“Sending love to all the superhero mothers out there. Big hugs to all the women who have been pregnant during this challenging time.”
Fans were quick to react, with one praising Papa Bear’s adorable cheeks. “His cheeks! Such a widdle handsome guy,” one wrote, prompting nearly five thousand followers to agree by liking the comment.
Meanwhile, Christina Milian and her husband are also expecting their second child together within a year.
“You and Me + 3,” the Love Don’t Cost A Thing singer and actress captioned photos on Instagram highlighting her growing baby bump. “#morelove.” and announcig that she and her boyfriend since 2017, French singer Matt Pokora, are expecting.
The couple welcomed son, Isaiah on January 20 and she is mom to 10-year-old daughter Violet Madison, who she welcomed with ex-husbandThe-Dream in February 2010.
Fantasia shared some pretty regal looking family Christmas photos starring her husband, her 19-year old daughter Zion and her 9-year old son Zion, both from other relationships.
Barrino has two children, Zion Quari, 19, and Dallas Xavier, 8, from previous relationships. Taylor also has a son, Treyshaun.
Barrino, who won Season 3 of “American Idol” in 2004, also shared a separate post on Wednesday about her pregnancy.
“God I Want To Thank You!” Barrino wrote. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes were Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”

“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.

“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.
Congratulations to rapper Nicki Minaj who reportedly gave birth to her first child this week.Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty welcomed the new addition on Wednesday, September 30 in Los Angeles according to media reports.
The Queen recording star only recently announced the news while in her final trimester back in july.
They got their marriage license in July 2019, but did not finally tie the knot until three months later.”Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19,” the singer posted at the time with a video that showed all of her bridal-themed merch.Congrats!
Tragic news for TV host and model Chrissy Teigen and her husband singer John Legend who lost their third child after Teigen suffered pregnancy complications.
The couple shared the news on their respective social media accounts.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” the couple said in a formal statement posted to each of their Twitter pages.
Teigen was taken to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday after revealing that she had been on bed rest and bleeding for “a little less than a month.”
Sadly, it appears the bleeding might have been signs of the baby in stress.
“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions,” the post said. “It just wasn’t enough.”
On Teigen’s Instagram account on Wednesday night, she shared that she and her husband had decided to call the baby Jack.
With the first two pregnancies, the statements said the couple waited to name the baby until after delivering, but this time they had already begun calling “the little guy in my belly” Jack. “He will always be Jack to us,” the statement said. “Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.”
The celebrity couple are parents to 4-year old daughter Luna and 2-year old son Miles, both conceived via in vitro fertilization.
Teigen was recently quoted stating that she felt the IVF pregnancies were “untouchable and safe” but that her third pregnancy conceived without medical intervention felt fragile or “eggshelly” as she described it.
The family seems determined to grieve but grow stronger because of undergoing this ordeal.
“But everyday can’t be full of sunshine,” they said. “On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.”
