Rumor is out that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is pregnant again, PageSix says.
Nicholas Cage is about to be a grandfather for the first time, Celebrity Baby Scoop writes. Wow!
We’re well into Award Season and as usual, several of the moms we “bumpwatched” and followed in the past and others seriously werked the red carpet tonight at the Screen Actors Guild awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.
Including, winner for Best Cast Comedy Modern Family, Sofia Vergara, in a glitzy and bejeweled Donna Karan Atelier curve hugging dress.
Others spotted looking glam tonight included:
Mom-to-be nominee for Outstanding Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in Scandal, the lovely Kerry Washington in fuchsia silk embroidered crop top and skirt by Prada revealing part of her 6-months pregnant belly. She donned Harry Winston diamond earrings and a diamond cocktail ring to polish off the bold look.
Homeleand actress and nominee Claire Danes rocked the carpet in a Vionnet VIP collection mermaid dress, Jimmy Choo “Lance” sandals and Forevermark diamond jewels.
Julia Roberts stole this look from the 80s, the long ringlets cascading over this rose Valentino dress was meh for the Osage County actress and SAG nominee.
Tina Fey went black in this simple yet classic Osar de la Renta dress and was accompanied by her equally fashionable daughter Alice
30 Rock‘s Jane Krakowski won some of the night in this striking jade green Roland Mouret dress which works with her sexy style and sleek bob.
Jennifer Garner, who stars in Dallas Buyers Club looked A-Mazing in a fab Max Mara gown accented superbly with a cute Ferragamo clutch with David Web jewels.
This ornate Naeem Khan gown Malin Akerman wore aged the Trophy Wife star a bit but was a head turner, nonetheless.
Sandra Bullock went with emerald green Lanvin dress again with the swept bow and deep spit on the side and updo, which works but isn’t as stunning as her other looks for previous shows.

Congratulations are in order to rapper Nicki Minaj who is expecting her first child with her husband Kenneth Petty as she announced her news on her Instagram yesterday to the surprise of none of the Internet sleuths who had already recognized all the clues that she was pregnant, beginning with speculation last month when she posted a curious photo trying to conceal her bump in high rise bikini bottoms.
“Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes,” Minaj captioned the third in a set of formal colorful maternity photos where she is sitting on a pink couch. The last of the photos is her draped in white in an editorial shot made to look angelic, taken by famed photographer David LaChappelle.
Part of being a celebrity woman of child bearing years is that you have people constantly speculating about whether or not you are pregnant. It can frustrating especially if you had been actively trying but keep having to see and respond or ignore rumors published in the tabloids or social media. Model Chrissy Teigen, actress Gabrielle Union and many others suffered with infertility while batting down insenstive demands from people asking when they would be having their first chilld.
However, when the moment that a star does get pregnant, she then has the challenge that many women have of trying to keep it private for at least the first three months when the risk for miscarriage is the highest. After the first trimester, the chances of that mom-to-be carrying a baby full term and having a healthy labor and delivery shoots up exponentialy.
Still, sometimes the public guesses right because there are tell tale signs and Minaj displayed them ALL!!!
After the Super Bass performer made her announcement, many fans said in the comment sections under news reports that the news was of no surprise to them based on the various clues that exist when a woman in the spotlight is hiding her pregnancy:
For women who famously show off their fab bods at every chance they get, seeing them suddenly stick to posting head shots inscial meida is a dead giveaway that they are trying to perhaps hide weight gain in the tummy area and elsewhere.
For the weeks leading up to the announcement the Anaconda rapper shared photos of her self performing songs with only her head in the shot.
You can hide your body by carefully selecting what you post but unless you plan to live a hermit life or escape to another country, then there is a high liklihood that the paparazzi will spot you out and about.
When Kylie Jenner was secrety pregnant with her daughter Stormi, fans speculated her condition because she wore baggy clothes. Her sister, Khloe Kardashian, revealed that she used an A-line coat to hide her bump until she announced the news that she was expecting a baby.
If you are pregnant during Award season, as Cardi B was, you can get your stylist to design outfits that creatively conceal your bump.
Most recently, currently pregant stars, actress Sophie Turner and model Gigi Hadid were spotted in super baggy clothes and reported frequently as being pregnant in the gossip press. The oversized PJs were a dead give away Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik were expecting their first child together even before she confirmed her news last week.
The quarantine period was very convenient for Jessica Biel to lay low and incubate a whole other person. She and her musician/producer husband Justin Timberlake reportedly welcomed their second child recently and no one knew. They tore a page out of Ana Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias‘ book when those two had a whole set of twins on the download back in 2017.
Some have tried to keep the secret for the total nine months and have come close.
Last month, Minaj gave yet another clue when she showed a video of Petty rubbing her belly. In other years, the maternal subtle cradle of the tummy is a sign a woman is expecting. It’s a subcouncous and natural maneuver which is a sign.
Well there you have it. If you are a woman in the lime light and seek to totally hide your pregnancy from the media and the public, avoid doing any of the above. Good luck!
The 32-year-old Lip Sync Battle co-host took the stage at the Los Angeles rally on Saturday with her newborn son, Miles, in her arms to introduce her husband, who performed his new song, “Preach.”
“Let go of fear and see each other’s humanity,” the mother of two told the crowd at the event. Following Teigen’s speech, Legend also encouraged people to take action and spread the word about putting a stop to immigrant parents being separated from their children at the U.S.-Mexico border
“You can’t just talk about it or tweet about it. You’ve got to do something,” Legend passionately expressed. “We wrote this song that feels right for this moment… I know a lot of us have a strong temptation to just disengage, but we can’t. We can’t do that. I can’t do that. I have to do something.”
Following the performance, Teigen took to Instagram to share a touching snap of herself and her son onstage. “Baby’s first rally. #keepfamiliestogether,” she captioned the photo.
Last week, Legend performed “Preach” for the first time at an event in Los Angeles, where ET was in attendance.
“We’ve been watching what’s happening on the border and the turmoil the world is in right now. Every time we get outraged…it feels all you can do is tweet or vent about it,” he said prior to debuting the song. “But, sometimes you have to do something. You can’t just preach.”

Yesterday, Desperate Housewives alum and first-time mom-to-be Eva Longoria was honored with a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California.
Her good friend Victoria Beckham, who also designed Longoria’s wedding dress when she married media mogul Jose “Pepe” Baston, and her friend Ricky Martin, who sang is hit song “Livin La Vida Loca” at her wedding, attended the occasion along with her friend and Overboard film co star and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Anna Farris.
During the segment, while outfitted in a white bump hugging mini dress and a white duster, Longoria discussed her pregnancy and becoming a first-time mom.
“Yup, all I talk about nowadays is baby stuff,” Longoria, who is about two months away from having her first child with businessman Jose “Pepe” Baston, joked.
Although she says she has been “uncomfortable,” Longoria, who is also a step mom to Baston’s 20-year old son and 13-year old twins, says “feels great.”
“Everything’s uncomfortable,” she admitted. “Everything gets bigger. It’s not just your belly, like, I’ve never seen my thighs so big, and my boobs… they’re in the way of everything. It’s hard.”
Discomfort aside, Longoria admitted that she often does forget that she’s even expecting, a sentiment she also recently shared with ET.
“The other day, I was sleeping and the alarm went off, and I was gonna jump out of bed. And I was like, ‘What’s happening? I can’t get up!'” she quipped to Kimmel, adding that she also had another memory lapse recently when she suggested a ski trip to her husband.
“My husband and I were talking about going snow skiing, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, we should go next weekend, we’re free!'” she said. “And he goes, ‘No! You’re pregnant!'”
When the parents to be initially found out Longoria was pregnant, she said her husband was concerned about how they were “going to keep this under wraps.”
“I was like, ‘They’ve been saying I’m pregnant every month for the last 20 years of my life. It’ll be so easy,'” she admitted. “I had a burger, and they’re like, ‘Eva’s pregnant!’ And I had a pizza, and they’re like, ‘Baby bump!’ (we are guilty!)
And finally, the tabloids came out, and they’re like, ‘Eva’s gained weight.’ And I was like, ‘I am pregnant!'”
As for her delivery plans, she shared that both her and Baston’s “large families” will be coming out, though she doesn’t particularly want them to — and especially doesn’t want anyone in the delivery room.
“I don’t want anybody there. I need to absorb this moment by myself,” Longoria confessed. “I’ll end up taking care of them and cooking for them and making sure they’re OK. I don’t have time! But they’re coming.”
On this Memorial Day in America, some of the Celeb women and families we have covered on Bellyitch Blog in the past made posts in honor of our fallen soldiers on their respective social media feeds.
Here is a snippet:
We honor those that gave their lives so we can live. One nation under God. Indivisible. With liberty and justice for all. #MemorialDay

Tonight is the season finale of one of my favorite shows, The Leftovers. In it, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Liv Tyler is somewhat of a villain and I’m loving her performance on this dark and mysterious HBO drama.
This Thursday, Tyler told Jimmy Kimmel ,while appearing on the show promoting her show, that her dad, rock legend, Steve Tyler of Aerosmith, cut the umbilical cord of last child , Sailor Gene Gardner, now 9-months old.
Sailor came 6-weeks early and Liv’s partner David Gardner couldn’t get to the birth in time because he was stuck on the plane so her pops stepped in! Nice! Though, I can see how some people could also find it a little icky. You know your dad there seeing his adult child push out a child. um…yeah.
Her half- sister Mia was there too.

The clip from Kimmel:
I used to have a 3 decades-long crush on Steven Tyler. It ended when he was serving as one of the celebrity judges on American Idol and I saw him oogling some 17-year old contestant who looked hawt. Ugh! Total turnoff. Well, it’s not like I don’t have a husband who is weirded out that the front man was one of my celeb crushes. ha!
Watch the Finale of The Leftovers tonight! I think you can catch back episodes on the website, on Hulu or HBO on Demand or HBO’s stand alone service.

Lost alum Evangeline Lilly was trending all day today because of an E!Online report announcing the now mom-to-2 was spotted on a beach wearing a bikini two months after giving birth to her second child in Hawaii.
Backtrack, Lilly is great about not announcing her pregnancies. It wasn’t until she was 8 months along before a wayward member of the paparazzi spotted her in Hawaii where she lives often with her longtime partner Hawaii born Norman Kali, a production assistant she met on the Lost set.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies star announced the second pregnancy by showing up this summer to the red carpet for her movie Ant-Man‘s première. She was already 7 months pregnant.
And even now, the Canadian-born managed to avoid the press for two months after giving birth, having not released a statement about the birth of her second child at all. If it wasn’t for the papps again, we’d still not know she had the kid. Lily and Kali are parents to 4-year old son Kahekili Kali.
The fact the news of the bikini was the reason she trended upset some in social media and the blogsphere. We’ve discussed often on Bellyitch before how pop culture and gossip media’s obsession with the post-body celebrity can be dangerous for the message it sends to current and future new moms, and to society in general.
“I understand celebrities are newsworthy, and I am not saying a celebrity having a child isn’t news,” Rapson penned. “I am perturbed at the PRESS for making this NEWS.”
She then went on to highlight three things why this actress’ body being newsworthy upset her:
“And herein lies my issue: why is this news? Why the excitement about a beautiful mom showing some skin after having a baby? Is it because…
See, Moms? You can look hot after having a baby! You can achieve the ultimate goal of beauty in life AND be a mom, too. Now hit the gym!”
Well, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
And Rapson wasn’t the only one. Here are some of the reactions we captured of folks in social media .
