Super Bowl Showdown: Gisele Bundchen versus the ATL Divas

new-england-patriots

The big game is tomorrow evening. Who are you rooting for? The 4x Super Bowl champions New England Patriots or the Atlanta Falcons. I know for certain our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Gisele Bundchen will be Team Patriots. After all, she is married to its longtime famed quarterback Tom Brady.

I’m not for certain, but I will take a guess that the scores of other celebs we’ve “bumpwatched” who live in the Atlanta area will be cheering for their home team.

Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Eudoxie Agnan, Ciara, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, Rasheeda and Tamara Braxton-Herbert all hail from the ATL.

If you’re looking for inspiration gear, check out the curated collections below:

 

2016 Billboards Awards Red Carpet Style, Tho Adele Who Wasn’t There Won the Night

red carpet billboard awards 2016

Bellyitch ‘Bumpwatch’ alums Jessica Alba, Kelly Rowland, Eudoxi Agnan, Ciara, Britney Spears & Idina Menzel at the 2016 Billboard Awards

Sunday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 2016 Billboard Music Awards saw some of our fave Bellytich Bumpwatch alums take the pink carpet in some fabulous fashion creations. And as usual, we poked around to discover who wore what.

However,  the night belonged to Adele who took home 5 awards (second to The Weeknd who won 7). She nabbed the Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album for “25“, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Female Artist and Top Selling Song for “Hello” Awards.  She wasn’t even there to accept the award in person because she is on a world tour but she did beam in via satellite.

Two more blog faves, Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell walked the carpet with Kathryn Hahn their co-star from their new TV show Bad Moms. (Which also stars Jada Pinkett Smith and Christina Applegate).

Kunis was in Zuhair Murad couture and Hahn wore an Altuzarra top and skirt. I love loved Bell’s Jonathan Simkhai jumpsuit. So cute!

Another blog regular Kelly Rowland went va va voom, almost too good for the Billboards, in a shimmery, sheer Labourjoisie gown.

Meanwhile, dressed in all black were Bumpwatch alums Jessica Alba businesswoman’s Zuhair Murad dress, Heidi Klum  in  Alfredo Villalba and  Idina Menzel  in a Michael Costello dress (Alba, Klum and Menzel presented awards) with host for the night, rapper Ludacris‘, wife Eudoxie Agnan.

Ludacris’ co-host was the super svelte Ciara who walked the carpet in a very revealing  Phillip Plein gown. Wowza! She did too more sheer and material dresses during her hosting duties.

Britney Spears performed and before rocked the pink carpet in a black lace showgirl outfit dripping in Jacob & Co jewels and Schutz boots.

22 Sexy & Fashionable Virgo Celebs 

 Early Adopter

As this month is a fashionable one with all the various designers unveiling their Spring 2016 and Fall 2015 collections on runways at various cities’ respective Fashion Weeks, and it being Virgo season, I thought I would highlight all the fashionable celebrity moms and designers we’ve covered in Bellyitch over the years.

Tom Ford also infamously said, “You know, the world might be a very scary place if it were only run by Virgos.” True, but every organization needs a Virgo in it to keep it running smoothly. So does the world!

ha!

I admit I am biased given my birthday was on September 6 and I myself am a proud Virgo and share a birthday with at least one spouse of a Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum  and the sign with other alums (above) including the Queen Bee Beyonce (Sept. 4), Country singer Jennifer Nettles, (Sept. 12), TV host and former model Padma Lakshmi (Sept. 1) , Songstress P!nk (Sept. 8) and powerhouse singer and actress Jennifer Hudson (Sept. 12).



Our Virgo Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who are actual designers include Stella McCartney (Sept. 13), Nicole Richie (Sept. 21), and Rachel Zoe (Sept.1)


Male Fashion Icons and Designers I love and admire (either for their fashion sense, work ethic or a combo of both) include: my birthday mate and alum Idris Elba (Sept. 6), Tom Ford (Aug. 27), Karl Lagerfeld (Sept. 10); and guys whose S.O. we recently covered Wiz Khalifa, ex to Amber Rose (Sept. 8) and Evan Ross, spouse to Ashlee Simpson (Aug. 26).

Young and/other influential in-demand Fashionable women I enjoy seeing dressed up as fashion muses for several designers: Taraji P. Henson (Sept. 11), KeKe Palmer (Aug. 26), Misty Copeland (Sept. 10), Zendaya Coleman (Sept 1) and Angela Simmons (Sept 18).


Finally, fashion forward and super sexy Salma Hayek (Setp. 2), Jada Pinkett Smith (Sept 18) and Sanaa Lathen (Sept. 19) also rock the Virgo Virgin sign well.



And of course Ludacris (Sept 14), rounding up for pops of recent alum Eudoxie.

Happy Birthday, Virgos!

Influential Celeb Moms help Promote Breastfeeding among Black Women

black celeb moms promoting breastfeeding

I was stalking the Instagrammed wedding photos from our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Yandy Smith, the music manager and e-magazine publisher who stars in the VH1 show Love and Hip Hop. I stopped at a glorious photo of the beautiful new mom breastfeeding her infant daughter Skylar right before the ceremony.

She captioned the photo: “OMG @timefrozen you captured my life in a nutshell in this pic. Baby Skylar started crying right before I walked. I had to walk down the isle a little late because I had to feed her. I love this picture. Thank you for capturing this without me even knowing. Lol. #smithharriswedding2015 #moderndomesticegl”

Marvelous! I love Smith’s IG because in all of her photos she comes off genuinely happy and full of life. She seems nurturing, in love with her new husband and children and she embraces her beautiful and curvy new mom body and is confident in her skin even as she amps up her work out routine in recent weeks to gradually get back to her pre-baby size. She’s a great IG follow.

This discovery came the day after I also spotted an equally wonderful breastfeeding support IG pic from rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges wife, Eudoxie Bridges, who is an independently accomplished woman in her own right, having recently received a Master’s degree and pursuing a Medical degree.

The photo featured stacks of breast milk the Gabonese new mom to daughter Candace had recently pumped so dad could feed baby while Eudoxie caught up on some sleep.

“Got the supply ready for daddy’s shift ?? #gotbreastmilk #liquidgoldastheycallit #bestdadever #heismrmom #takesnightshifts,” she captioned the photo.

I think both are serving as wonderful ambassadors to breastfeeding to their community of followers that include lots of black and African American women.

This demo stops breastfeeding earliest out of all other racial groups, partially because of culture stigma.

The Centers for Disease Control  reports that African Americans are less likely to breastfeed their children. “Black infants consistently had the lowest rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration across all study years,” the CDC statistics note.

The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies reports that Blacks stop breastfeeding sooner than other races, setting up their children for higher incidences of illnesses and diseases that non-breastfed children succumb to at a higher rate than those who were nursed. The report also links higher rates of infant mortality and low birth weight to lack of breastfeeding.

There is a taboo about it among the black community, perhaps, and those who nurse for too long are not encouraged or supported and are sometimes egged on to stop breastfeeding after a few weeks or months.  Although to be fair, shorter breastfeeding times are also linked to working wage-earning mothers who have little to no maternity leave who all have to report to work earlier.  Also, moms who have shorter maternity leave and/or work in settings where they do not have a private place to pump and store their milk for their babies, also stop earlier.

Kim Durdin-James, national president of the African-American Breastfeeding Alliance (AABA), summed it up well in saying, “In the best of times, breastfeeding is the optimal feeding choice for young children because it provides babies with all vital nutrients for growth and development, but in times of disaster, breastfeeding can mean the difference between life and death.”

So it is great to see influential women sharing their experience breastfeeding which perhaps could encourage more to do the same, if they do not face any other impediment to breastfeeding like low supply, extreme discomfort or other problems.

Kudos Eudoxie and Yandy!
