Entrepreneur and Reality Tv star Khloe Kardashian threw a lavish neutral-colored bear themed baby shower for her BFF, actress and model Malika Haqq, over the weekend.

The event was held at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss organized the luxe celebration.

The mom-to-be wore a muted strappy floor length fish tail, bump-hugging jersey dress with her hair pulled back in a sleek ponytail and subtle and soft makeup.

Guests included family and friends and fellow celebs like Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Tamar Braxton, Don’t Be Tardy’s Brielle Biermann and her mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann and others. Haqq’s twin sister Khadijah Haqq was also on hand.

Attendees were treated to goodies like sweet honey tea in adorable bear jars,petite pastries, a multi-tiered cake  and cereal because according to Khloe in an insta story video, Malika craved cereal for most of her pregnancy.

They also played typical baby shower games like the “can’t say ‘baby’” game, the guess Malika’s baby belly girth and the guess the baby’s delivery date and guess the number of cookies in the jar game.

They went home with cute favors like baby bottle shaped bottle openers.

Malika is expecting a baby boy, the first child with her on-again-off-again boyfriend, rapper O.T. Genasis.

“A BEARy beautiful Baby Shower!!” Khloe captioned a series of photos of the event. “I have been planning Malika’s baby shower in my head for quite some time. Malika was very specific with not wanting color. So this was the only color we were able to get away with LOL It turned out beautifully!”

Everyone wore brown, white and other muted and neutral colors to the event to accommodate Malika’s request.

“I could not thank @mindyweiss @andrew_mindyweiss @jeffleatham enough!!” Khloe added thanking the event planning staff. “I know I’m a lot at times because I’m so specific and I love to micro manage but you guys always go over the top. You surpass any dream that I have ever conjured up in my head as to how I want something to look. Every time I am WOWED by your work and perfection! Thank you guys for being the best! You literally are my dream team! Thank to everyone who helped put this spectacular shower together!”

Here are some videos and photos of the fun event that the  host, guests and vendors posted on their respective social media pages

The Expensive Ways Celebrities Prepare For a New Baby

For most people, the glamorous life is a fantasy and something some aspire to attain. It’s why we love celebrities and high profile people.

It’s why shows like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and more recently, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and half of the Bravo TV line up do so well.

If we were to be totally engaged with that lifestyle, here is one of the ways we would make our 2020 amazing.

Get Extravagant PUSH presents like Sports Cars

One of the best ways that you can make your 2020 more glamorous if you are a celebrity is to invest your money in a new sports car. Travis Scott famously gifted his ex Kylie Jenner a $1.4M Ferrari after she welcomed the couple’s first child together, Stormi Webster.

Take Luxury Babymoons

Us peons may take a Babymoon to Miami to get away before baby arrives.

Celebrities have access to more luxurious locales. Ciara who is expecting her third child, but second with her husband Russell Wilson announced the news while chilling on a rock in Turks and Caicos.

They just whip out their list of some of the most glamorous destinations that you can visit and close their eyes and pick!

Start a Maternity Fashion Line

When we get pregnant and can find something chic to wear, we hold on to our non maternity clothes for as long as we can before having to break out the overalls and succumb to the belly. Celebrity women just call up a few sponsors and brands and start an entire fashion line. Several famous women like Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham and Jessica launched maternity fashion lines while expecting.

If we wanted to emulate that sort of extravagance we would have to do stuff like hit the vintage shops or sell our old clothes on sites like Depop

Buy New Homes for Baby

When baby makes three, the average new family convert the old study into a nursery or clean out the spare room. Stars purchase a larger home to accommodate the nanny and extra staff that will be on board to help them navigate parenthood.

To prepare for the arrival of their first child together, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis upgraded their home and purchased a $10M 3 bedroom, 4 bath Beverly Hills home to accommodate their growing family, according to US Weekly. They aren’t the only ones.

Purchase the Most Expensive Crib

Finally, while the rest of us are scouring sale ads and stalking Groupon for deals on strollers and car seats, celebs like Beyonce splurge on high price top of the line products like purchasing a $3,500 lucite crib for her first child Blue Ivy.

And not just cribs, these high paid figures can afford to get the most expensive car seat, designer new born clothing and more. It’s part of the perk of being wealthy.

In the meantime, we gawk and point and admire from our computer screens.

Queen and Slim’s Jodie Turner-Smith Claps Back at Her Pregnant Body Shamers

 

Pregnant Queen and Slim  Jodie Turner-Smith showed off her bare bump during an appearance on popular British television program the  Graham Norton Show on Friday, January 31, where she let it slip that she is apparently expecting a baby girl with husband Joshua Jackson.

She also had to battle pregnant body shamers on social media after the broadcast who made negative comments about the fact that her bare bump was revealed in her outfit, a one shoulder halter and matching wrap skirt.

“Nobody wants to look at your baby bump,” one tweeted and another said “I don’t think pregnant women should wear outfits exposing their bellies.”

To these commenters, who are the minority that chose to be vocal but certainly represent the opinions of many other out there, Turner-Smith replied with her own commentary:

The actress revealed the baby’s gender, perhaps accidentally when responding to host Norton question about her baby and replied “I think she’s bored.”

She also confirmed that she’s in the homestretch.

“I’ve just got a couple months left,” she told Norton. “I’m at the finish line, I think. Well not the finish line, but very close.”

WWE and Total Divas’ Bella Twins are Both Pregnant

Congrats to retired WWE superstars, twins Nikki Bella and Brie Bella who are both expecting at the same time.

And they are due a week and a half apart.

It’s a total coincidence for the the twin sisters and was not planned, they say.

“I was in yoga, and I kept getting this feeling that you need to take a pregnancy test, but I wasn’t even late yet,” Nikki Bella, whose real name is Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, told People magazine. “And so I’m like, ‘Why do I keep having this feeling? Am I getting twin vibes from her? Because she just told me she’s pregnant?’”

The Bella twins started their career as tag team partners in the WWE for 10 years which spun into featured roles as cast members of an E! reality series that follows the lives of a group of female wrestlers called, Total Divas.

The two got their own spin off show, Total Bellas, that followed the women and their relationships and family lives.

Brie Bella, whose real name is Brianna Monique Danielson, has a 2-year-old daughter, Birdie, with WWE superstar, Daniel Bryan.

“We are shocked like all of you!!!,” she posted on Instagram. “Never in a million years thought did I think @thenikkibella and I would be having pregnant bellies together!!!”

This will be the first child for Nikki, who recently announced her engagement to Artem Chigvintsev, whom she met while being a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.

“My baby is SO strong it’s crazy! (Mama felt it everyday first trimester lol) Can’t tell if it’s the wrestling genes or the ballroom!!,” she posted on Instagram, sharing that the babies are due in August.

Nikki, who was formerly engaged to wrestler-turned-actor John Cena, also shared a sonogram of her baby on Twitter, “Say hi to our very strong warrior baby.”

They each have the same pregnancy symptoms, Brie shared, adding, “It’s actually crazy … So we’ve been super nauseous.”

Congrats!
