GB Design House provided the napkins for the event, hot-chocolate supplies, popcorn boxes, chocolate truffles for guests to take home, stir sticks and advice coasters, which guests filled out to give their best parenting tips to the mom- and dad-to-be.

Kate Middleton is Planning Meghan Markle’s UK Baby Shower

Although the concept of Baby Showers is pretty foreign to the British, insiders report that Kate Middleton is planning a version of a shower for her sister-in-law, Meghan Markle.

The baby is due in late April, a few days before their first wedding anniversary, and the Duchess of Cambridge will be hosting the intimate event with family and close staff, likely in her home at Kensington Palace.

Even though the royal couple previously said they were keeping the sex of the baby a surprise, according to recent reports, Meghan is apparently expecting a boy.

This would be the Duchess of Sussex’s second shower because he had a nice intimate one thrown by her American celeb friends Serena Williams, Amal Clooney and her Suits co-star last month.

Inside Jessica Simpson’s ‘Birdie’s Nest’ Themed Baby Shower

Jessica Simpson and her husband ex NFL quarterback Eric Johnson celebrated the impending arrival of their third child together, a daughter the couple have chosen to name “Birdie.”

During the outdoor day-to-nighttime event, called “Birde’s Nest”, guests participated in a family dining affair draped in lots of beautiful floral arrangements dripping from an awning above.

In attendance was her sister “Pieces of Me” singer Ashlee Simpson and Jessica’s bestie Cacee Cobb,

In photos the singer and actress turned fashion entrepreneur posted on her Instagram, she can be seen in a flowy white lace dress under a emerald green robe posing alongside her 6-year old daughter Maxwell “Maxi” Drew

In another photo, she, mom Tina, Ashlee and Ashlee’s daughter Jagger Snow with husband Evan Ross posed.

She Instagrammed storied a lot of the events while giving credit to the event designer, rental company and other vendors who helped make the gorgeous affair possible and look so heavenly!

While she is catching some heat for the name, she is not the first celebrity to go with that name.

E! Talk show host and actress Busy Phillips named her daughter Birdie after being inspired by the movie about Lady Bird Johnson.

WWE wrestlers Brie Bella & Daniel Bryan also named their daughter born last year that as well!

About Rick Ross New Baby Boy, ‘Billion’ and Other Celeb Wealth Loving Ways

What’s more crazy interesting than celebrities who are so passionate about wealth that they show it off in their music videos are those that carry it over to their child-raising.

Case in point: Rick Ross and his girlfriend fitness model Briana Camille recently welcomed their a baby boy to the world and perhaps as a nod to their monetary goal in life, they named the little one: Billion

The “Green Gucci Suit” rapper, who’s expected to appear on the Creed II soundtrack, used his Twitter account to make the announcement:

“Let’s all welcome my son ‘Billion Leonard Roberts’ to the world ?… ??,” he tweeted without revealing the baby’s mom. The newest arrival joins the world a little over a year after they welcomed daughter, Berkeley Hermes. Granted it is the name of a Roman God but I think he was thinking of the luxury brand. (ha!) Ross now has four children including his eldest daughter, and his first born son with ex Tia Kemp.

It’s not just names either.  Some celebrate impending arrivals with wealth-brand themes. For example, last weekend Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood stars  Lyrica Anderson and husband A1 celebrated the impending arrival of their baby boy with a Tiffany & Co– themed baby shower.

Actually, the Tiffany theme is quite common. All  you have to do is run a search for it in Pinterest where I got this photo below:

Celebs have even gone as far as name their babies after money itself.

Recall, a while ago, Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV wives Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak-Biermann feuded over what to name their future child. Each wanted to use the name Kash. Zolciak even went as far as get the name Kash Kade trademarked before the baby was even born.

Of course Cash is an authentic real name that is not connected to money. See director and producer and spouse of Jessica Alba, Cash Warren, for example. Also, Hawaii 5-O star Will Yun Lee and his wife Jennifer Lee named their son Cash.

I’m a firm believer in naming a baby whatever you please and makes you happy! Given most celeb babies will never have to worry about a name getting in the way of getting a job, why not name em “Billion”?

Happy baby naming!

RHOA’s Shamea Morton Announced Her Baby’s Gender with Fireworks!



Real Housewives of Atlanta Friend of the Wives Shamea Morton and her husband Gerald Mwangi hosted an over-the-top Gender Reveal party over the weekend. In attendance were RHOA stars Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams.

“We’re waiting to find out what my boo @shameamorton is having! I’m #TeamBoy.” Burruss captioned a photo of her and hubby cradling Morton’s bump on her Instagram. “What do y’all think? Update: It’s a girl! ? #ShameaAndGeraldGenderReveal?: @hauseofglam

Turns out Burruss was wrong. The couple are actually expecting a girl which made Morton happy.

“I hope she’s a mini-me,” Shamea told US Weekly. “I do girls really well,” she added. “I was more terrified of a boy. I’m all for the tutus and bows.”

Gerald was equally excited to learn that he would welcome a girl later this year. “He already calls her his princess,” Shamea revealed. “He’s overjoyed.”

And boy was it quite the reveal!  In a video produced by Freddy O, Morton shares that she had no clue what the baby’s sex was but was excited to learn.

The guests gathered outdoors to watch fireworks launch and eventually, the last set of explosions revealed pink works! It’s a girl!

“We showed our 45minute wedding video and the entire house was quiet,” the former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader told Us. “There were even a few tears shed when we played our vows.”

Along with the fireworks display, revelers enjoyed a feast that included cupcakes, pulled pork, corn on the cob and rotisserie chicken.

Morton called the entire night was “a dream.”

Inside Cardi B’s and Offset’s ‘Bronx Fairytale’ Baby Shower

Fresh off confirmation that they secretly wed, rappers Cardi B and her new husband Offset, celebrated the upcoming birth of their first child together at a lavish “Bronx Fairytale” themed wedding in Atlanta, Georgia this week.

The event, named for the New York city burrough where Cardi is from, featured a 16-foot topiary floral wall, room entrance ways that resembled a 6-car subway train, and several rooms draped in 26,000 pink and white flowers, created by C. Waymen Florals & Events.  One area of one room featured a mock “Bardi Baby Bodega” stocked with personalized diapers, bottles, and more.

Guests chilled out in an elegant lounge area and noshed on custom-made piraguas, sliced fruit, and soul food, while sipping on pink coquito cocktails and Hennessy shots, as Vogue style writer put it, a nod to Cardi B’s sister, Hennessy Carolina.

I loved best the “Bardi Baby Book Library,” stocked with Latina and African-American children’s books like “Buenas Noches”, “Luna”, and “Viva, Frida”.

The center piece of the event was a five-tier cake, with each layer a different flavor fave of Cardi’s: Dominican pineapple, strawberry, red velvet, chocolate ganache, and honey bun.

Entertainment included Orchestra Noir, a hip hop orchestra group, and the Ballethnic dance company.

Guests took home as party favors custom purple baby blanket, a nod to the epic self portrait shawl Cardi once wore to the airport.

A glowing Cardi went with light pink bodycon dress with bold  brushed silver statement necklace and earrings while Offset opted for a denim jeans and a jacket with a black turtleneck, a large cross necklace and a studded silver belt.

Guests included fellow rappers and our Bellyitch bumpwatch alums Rasheeda and singer Monica, and at one point in one video shared on Instagram,  Hennessy can be seen dancing with the expectant mom and rubbing her protruding belly.

It was very much the electrifying shower the “Invasion of Privacy” recording artist told Rolling Stone in her cover story that she wanted the event to be.

“I want a lit baby shower. My baby shower’s not starting at no 5:00. My sh*t is going to start at 9 p.m. because that’s how I celebrate, that’s how Caribbean people celebrate,” Cardi said. “I don’t like baby showers that be at 5 p.m. in the backyard, eating, cooking hors d’oeuvres. Nah. Sh*t, I might even drink some red wine. Red wine’s healthy, right?”
