Celebrity Couples whose Union Didn’t Survive Their Baby’s First Birthdays

bellyitcblog.com spli up

US Weekly reports that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have split after 11 years together.

It is the latest in a slate of high-profile celeb break ups this summer including Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Break ups are sad and we’ve notice that in the 7 years that Bellyitch Blog has been in existence, a substantial amount of celebrity women who we have had on our “bumpwatch” list have broken up with their respective significant others.

Some broke up before the baby was even born: Christina Milian, Kelis, Heidi Klum and January Jones,and many more split with their respective hubby/baby daddies before they even gave birth.

Last year, CiaraEva Marcille (nee Pigford),  and Amber Rose split with their partners before each of  their baby’s turned 6 months old. The separations have been messy, still.  A few years ago, Selma Blair and her ex Jason Bleick split up 14 months after welcoming their first child together.

Others we’ve covered who have called it quits include: The Jamie Foxx show actress Garcelle Beauvais, TV host Padma Lakshmi from Top Chef, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Freeman from My Wife and Kids, Lauryn Hill, Kimora Lee Simmons (Djimon Hounsou days), Hilary Duff, Fantasia, Halle Berry, Jill Scott, Kate Hudson, Jamie Lyn Spears, Lauren London, Monyetta Shaw (NeYo’s ex), Golden Brooks from “Girlfriends”.

At this point, it’s probably safer to start chronicling those who are still together because they are the new exception, not the rule in Hollywood, it seems. But hey, so long as everyone is happier and better off apart and the off-springs are co-parented well with little to minimum drama, right?

No judgment from us, okay. We’re  just pointing out the trends and facts. Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts! (*smirk*)

10 celebrities whose parenting skills have been questioned

In today’s celebrity-obsessed world, it’s easier than ever to spot your favorite public figures in some of their less-than-shining moments. This is especially true for the intensely personal areas in their lives, like major mistakes when it comes to their parenting choices. For every story about celebrity supermoms like Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie, there seems to be two more about famous parents that aren’t quite cutting it. While there are a variety of stories about celebs that just can’t seem to avoid missteps as they raise their children, these 10 have committed parenting sins that have seemed to follow them ever since.

  1.     Dina and Michael Lohan – When their daughter Lindsey first appeared on the scene, she was a fresh-faced child with talent to spare and enough charm to set her apart from a field of other young actresses. As she began to get older, however, her substance abuse problems and run-ins with the law were more famous than her films, and it became apparent that many of them stemmed from her turbulent upbringing. In the world of bad celebrity parents, the Lohan parents have created so many maelstroms that it’s difficult to choose just one of their many parenting faux pas over the years.
  2.     Alec Baldwin – When tape of Alec Baldwin berating his daughter for missing a scheduled phone call surfaced, the deep enmity and bitterness of Baldwin’s divorce from Kim Basinger and his explosive temper sent shockwaves through the Hollywood gossip community.
  3.     Britney Spears – Two of the primary parenting flubs committed by this pop songstress could conceivably be attributed to the incessant hounding of paparazzi, but are still infamous nonetheless. Fleeing photographers with her son on her lap as she drove away or almost dropping him as she fought through the crush of reporters surrounding her before a highly-publicized breakdown that culminated in a loss of custody of her two children made headlines around the world, cementing Britney’s place among parents that have made questionable choices in the public eye.
  4.     Courtney Love – Openly admitting to using heroin during her pregnancy with daughter Frances Bean and later losing custody of her due to her regular struggles with maintaining sobriety, Courtney Love isn’t likely to top anyone’s Best Hollywood Parents list.
  5.     Michael Jackson – Despite well-known allegations of suffering at the hands of his own tyrannical father, Michael Jackson was, by most accounts, a devoted dad to his children. Still, his excitable nature got the best of him during a trip to Germany, where he dangled his then-infant son Blanket over a balcony in order to give admirers a closer look, despite having the child’s face covered.
  6.     Woody Allen – In the annals of Hollywood history, few stories have inspired the level of shock and vague disgust that accompanied the discovery of Woody Allen’s long-running affair with his adopted daughter. Now married parents of two adopted children of their own, Allen and Mia Farrow’s daughter Soon-Yi are still going strong, despite the fact that she entered his life as a daughter.
  7.     Eminem – While his devotion to daughter Hailey is well-known, Eminem’s decision to repeatedly release songs about murdering her mother Kim have painted him in a questionable light in terms of parenting.
  8.     Kate Moss – Struggling with substance abuse and addiction are enough to cause even the most dedicated parents to make terrible mistakes, but Kate Moss’s insistence on exposing her daughter to infamous British bad boy Pete Doherty and the fact that she missed Lila Grace’s third birthday due to a stint in rehab are parenting mistakes that she’ll likely never live down.
  9.     Peaches Geldof – Famous largely for being the daughter of a celebrity herself, Bob Geldof’s daughter Peaches should be familiar with the concept of growing up and parenting in the public eye. That knowledge didn’t stop her from continuing a conversation on her cell phone as her infant son Astala toppled out of his stroller onto the sidewalk. Peaches took to Twitter to blame the incident on the state of London’s sidewalks, insisting that he was strapped in to his stroller and wasn’t hurt. Pictures snapped by photographers tell a different story, however, as little Astala can be clearly seen falling out of his stroller head-first.
  10.     Kris Jenner – The matron of the Kardashian/Jenner empire has drawn comparisons to Joe Jackson due to her overbearing insistence on pushing her kids into the spotlight for more money and fame. The moment that lands her the dubious honor of a spot on this list, however, was pressuring her daughter Kim to pose nude for Playboy while cameras of the family reality show were rolling, despite Kim’s reluctance to strip down for the notorious magazine.

Two MTV ‘Teen Mom’ stories are trending

Two teen mom stories are trending;

Congratulations are in order! On New Year’s day, MTV cast members Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra welcomed their second child together, a daughter. The couple gave away their first child to adoption in 2009, citing immaturity and lack of resources to care for their daughter Carly. 
They plan to keep and raise this one and to marry later this year. They named her Nova Reign.  Baltierra addressed online critics about the birth after adoption on his Twitter account:
Since then, he has been promoting adoption and its benefits on his Twitter account.

Happy New Year: Bellyitch Blog 2013 Year in Review

We had quite the productive year here at Bellyitch in 2013.
Celebrity Pregnancy

Trends


This year marked some of the most anticipated pregnancies of

a long while, in particular, that of Duchess Catherine of Cambridge, the

former Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William.
Up until confirmation

of the pregnancy  in December 2012, she

was among the list of celebrities who were constantly

falsely reported
in the media as being pregnant. (Jennifer Aniston still

holds the distinction of being the most pregnant in the media).
Shortly following that announcement, in

February,  Fergie
, another celebrity often

accused of being pregnant
when ever she eats too much sushi and wears a tight

shirt to the paparazzi-infested Grove, announced her pregnancy. Thank goodness. Enough false reports.
But no other celebrity caused as much furor than Kim

Kardashian
, the American reality-TV star, actress and business woman who many

love to hate. She still boasts the most fans (including hater fans) and is widely adored along with the rest of her Kardashian

family clan.
This year was also the year of the America’s Next Top Model

pregnancies. Cycle 3 finalist YaYa

DeCosta Alafia
, and winner Eva

(Pigford) Marcille
; Cycle 4’s

Cassandra Jean
and Cycle 5 contestant and All Star winner Lisa

D’Amato
were all pregnant with their first child each.
Record Reviews and

Giveaways


This year, we continued to do reviews and previews of

various apps, products and movies, including some up and coming and

enterprising companies. We love showcasing and highlighting mom and dad

inventors and started companies as we all know parents are THE best for solving

problems parents face.  The

iiamo- Go
self-heating bottles
, the muzio

 life-sharing App
and the

uh-Oh
I’m lost bracelets
 and smaller

companies like

iSeeMe
were among our favorites.
We also showcased some new products and productions from major established

brands and companies like Graco,  Kodak,

Relativity

Media
 movie
producers of Safe Haven, Mega

Bloks
,  Lansinoh

Labs
,  20th Century Fox creators

and distributors of Walking

With Dinosaurs
 and others.
Finally, tonight, we release our biennial report of the top

100 maternity and baby products, The Bellyitch 100.
We’re excited for the New Year to bring you more new and

exciting features, stories, reviews and celebrity updates and news!
Here’s to the Future
In 2014, we also hope to launch our innovative Bellyitch

App
, which we hope to be a useful tool for soon-to-be parents, especially first

time ones!
Also, look for the  coffee table book version of our Bellyitch 100

eBook.




We promise to use the new year to begin bringing our readers

more exclusive interviews with celebrities and other pregnancy, maternity and

children health industry experts.
Thanks for being loyal readers of the blog. We wish  you great health, prosperity and plenty
