2014 Met Ball Red Carpet Trends as worn by celebrity moms

Among the A-List celebs strutting their looks on the red carpet to this year’s Met Ball were several of our Bellyitch alum moms last night, May 5.
There was a departure from the traditional avante garde fair this year given the theme “Charles James: Beyond Fashion”, named after the newest exhibit at the museum. It allowed the ladies to do old Hollywood glam, which is safer and more feminine for the annual gala put on by the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and produced by Vogue editor-in-chief Ana Wintour.


The actual exhibit featured vintage old and recent Hollywood red carpet and other formal evening dresses worn by major US and international stars. 
We saw some trends starting with the traditional trains, as spotted on Beyonce in a Givenchy dress and shoes adorned with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry; and on Charlize Theron in a black and white Dior dress worn with Fred Leighton jewels.

Actress Lake Bell held it down for the pregnant ladies in Tomy Hillfiger while Ivanka Trump did an earthy pattern in Oscar de la Renta.

Event co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker also wore Oscar de la Renta in a black and white ball gown while Victoria Beckham went as herself, in a sleek strapless Victoria Beckham evening dress.

Dark colors were seen on Marion Cotilliard in Christian Dior and Kim Kardashian in a sateen teal Lanvin evening dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
 
Metallic and Silver were worn by singer Lily Allen in Chanel Couture, model Lily Aldridge in Michael Kors and Nicole Richie in Donna Karan Atalier

Going with bold color was Katie Holmes in a full sunny gown by  Marchesa and Reese Witherspoon looking polished and pretty in Stella McCartney.

Decade in Review: 10 Celeb Parenting Trends That Are Now Outdated

Having covered celebrity pregnancy, parenting and the “bump watch” for over a decade, I pride myself in being an institutional memory of the trends in this space.

As we close out on another decade, I’ve identified 10 trends that have come and gone from the past decade, including old ones that have faded out of style over time and new ones spearheaded by the recent popularity and usage of social media.

Let’s start with the trends that are

Outdated and going bye bye:

10. Million Dollar Deals for First Baby Photos

In 2007, Julia Roberts reportedly was the first celebrity to demand a six figure payday ($250,000) from PEOPLE magazine to get the rights to publish the first photos of her twins Phinnaeus and Hazel. OK magazine got a steal and paid merely a little over a half a million for pics of Gwen Stefanie’s 2 week old son, Kingston. OK Magazine lost their $2 million dollar bid for Britney Spear and Kevin Federline’s first baby pic to People magazine. Nicole Richie reportedly received $1M for her photo of son, Max and Christina Aguilera for her son.

With magazines, along with newspapers, losing tons of revenue as people start to rely on digital forms of media for news and information, it no longer made business sense to pay these astronomical amounts of money.

Also, with the advent of social media and more conscious celeb couples publishing their babies on Instagram for free, the less famous personalities who used to shop for first photo deals found there was no longer a market for them.

9. Pregnant Nude Covers

After Demi Moore posed on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in 1991, it became a thing for stars to do the same.  Since then, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Nia Long and many more graced covers in the buff while expecting.

Soon, it became more of a quick and easy way to get publicity and attention, and eventually the public interest in them waned.

The last big photo issue was of Alanis Morissette in 2016. She did an undercover water shoot but the naked baby bump photo thing is more or less passe and not a public rosy stunt many will do.

8. The Celebrity Bounce Back

Around the same time that gossip magazines started to cover celebrity parents, we saw a lot of photos about the “bounce back”. It was as if it was a competition to see who could pop up slim and trim months or even weeks after baby.

It was ridiculous for several reasons: 1) a lot of the covers were photoshopped; 2) some of the celebs either genetically were predisposed to lose weight fast or underwent surgical procedures to quickly trim down after baby; 3) it set up a dangerous standard given that a lot of celebs have private chefs and trainers to help them lose weight fast; and 4) it sent a damaging message to women who should be concerned with safely healing from delivery and focusing on nursing and connecting with their newborns.

In any event, those magazine covers are not as common as before. In fact, a bunch of celebrity women like Chrissy Teigen, Blake Livey, Mila Kunis and others have spoken out about the ridiculous expectations on them to return to their pre-pregnancy form after baby.

The industry has gotten the message and do not sensationalize the bounce back as much as before.

7. Sponsored Baby Showers

Once upon a time, celebrities were approached by companies and brand representatives to host a baby shower for them in exchange for promotion of their products. The companies knew there were tons of promotions that came with the exposure.

Amazon.com sponsored Khloe Kardashian’s baby shower in 2018. Although the trend is dying out, over the past decade, Danielle Jonas and her husband Kevin celebrated a baby shower thrown by Fit Pregnancy magazine.

Also, Burt’s Bees was among the sponsors of Kourtney Kardashian’baby shower when she was pregnant with daughter Penelope. Similarly, Le Bebe CoCo  was among Kristin Cavallari‘s baby shower sponsors. Target hosted Beverley Mitchell’s baby shower. Several liquor companies provided the libations for cocktails served up at Love and Hip Hop’s  Yandy Smith‘s baby shower.

Jaime King enjoyed some fab brand goodies at her shower.  Ecoya‘s Sweet Pea & Jasmine home fragrance collection, a pink Quinny Buzz Special Edition stroller, a mamaRoo baby swing, a pink Hoppop Bath tub, a pink Little Giraffe Luxe Blanket, a Timi and Leslie diaper bag and a 5 ft. custom-made giraffe by Melissa and Doug all contributed to Victoria Beckham‘s baby shower.

Finally, Belly Bandit sponsored Jewel’s baby shower.

While this trend continues, audiences do not respond as favorable to them any longer and the comment section on sponsored baby showers are sometimes filled with negative commentary from fans who want less rich new parents to be showered with the gifts.

SOCIAL MEDIA DRIVEN

6. Hiding Children’s Face in Social Media

We famously were contacted by Stella McCartney’s reps over 10 years ago to remove paparazzi photos of her traveling with her children in the street posted on the blog. A few years later, Kristen Bell and husband Dax Shepard launched a campaign in 2014 to get a California state law passed to protect children of celebs from paparazzi. Others have done the same.

Eva Mendes and Kerry Washington do not show their kids in public or social media at all.

In the social media era, a few refuse to feature their children in social media or they hide their faces when they do: Zoe Saldana, Beyonce, brit star Rochelle Humes, Kylie Jenner  and Jenna Dewan all have done that in the past or continue to.

5. Celebrity Kids Instagram Accounts

On the flip side, several less famous stars realize the tremendous money making and marketing opportunities in giving their children their own account and branding their name and fame from birth.

It’s a pretty recent phenomenon, but starting with , DJ Khaled who launched an Instagram account  for his son Asadh in 2016 when Baby Khaled was just one month old, many celebs have created accounts for their kids as well.

Little  Asadh now has 1.8M followers, Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade‘s 1 year old daughter Kaavia James boasts 1M followers and Michael Phelps’ 3-year old son Boomer Phelps  now has 665K followers of his Instagram page.

I think the youngest baby to get an Insta was Cali Clay Shephard, daughter of model Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard whose account was opened at just 16 days old.

This is a trend that is not getting old but is growing as more realize the revenue generating options that open up with having a massive engaged following.

4.  Hiding Pregnancy to Late Trimester

From my memory in covering this topic, I think that Kylie Jenner, Anna Kournokova and a few others did the best job at hiding their pregnancies for all 9 months. It’s pretty hard to hide from the paparazzi and shield their bump during events, filming and promoting a project.

But in 2011, Evangeline Lilly managed to almost completely disguise her entire pregnancy until papps found her in Hawaii while almost done gestating her first child. Jennifer Lopez and Adele managed to hide their respective pregnancies for over 5 months.

Given how common miscarriage is, a lot of women, whether a celebrity or not, wait until the latest time possible when they feel comfortable that they will be able to carry their baby to term to announce baby news.

Hiding an early pregnancy while building a career in front of the public is not easy to do as Cardi B learned but it can be done and the more private or celebs are learning from others how to do it.

3. Launch New Career/Re invigorate Career

Also during the height of the interest in celeb baby bumps, a lot of stars who were formerly very popular but whose fame had waned were able to reinvigorate their respective careers after having a baby.

For example, Kim Karadashian West once lamented that she saw a spike in paparazzi photos whenever she is expecting.

About 10 years ago, Mommyish published a gallery of celebrities who became more famous after becoming pregnant or becoming a mom.

It is not clear is the general public is as enamored with celebrity pregnancy as it once was before so a baby may not be the career boost as it was in the past.

2. Launch a Maternity or Parenting Related Brand

Tia and Tamera Mowry famously launched a breastfeeding brand called Milky after becoming parents for the first time.  Others like Jessica Simpson, Heidi Klum and Jessica Simpson, Heidi Klum launched maternity lines or added children clothing to their existing lines as with Stella McCartney and The Kardashians after they became a mom, respectively.

Instagram famous women shift their feeds and started featuring their babies and promoting parenting and motherhood related brands as part of their new post baby rebranding.

So at least in social media, a new baby can create opportunities.

1. Being Open and Honest about Miscarriage

Micarriage is a taboo among many families. It is unspoken and women who go through it suffer in silence or keep it a secret. It occurs more often than many would believe, yet women usually keep it a secret from family and friends. It certainly taints and colors one’s journey to motherhood, whether it happened in the early weeks or mid term. A woman will earnestly never be the same after suffering through one, especially she and her partner were planning for the baby they lost.

In recent years, a lot of celebrities have been open and transparent about having gone through a miscarriage.

And a lot more are being open and transparent about losses they’ve had in the past.

From many of the stars of BravoTV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta to Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mithcell to Michelle Obama to Beyonce and Carrie Underwood and Gabrielle Union, openly sharing about a miscarriage or pregnancy loss is the thing to do.

Because of their influence, platform and reach, it’s awesome that these women are sharing their stories to help comfort and empathy for those who have endured it or may be unknowing about how common it is.

In the coming decade, let’s hope the trend of being relatable and real continue and we can leave behind those trends that created stress and anxiety among their followers behind.

 

Besides Kylie Jenner, Which Celeb Wears Their Baby as An Accessory Best/Most?

Mommy and Me fashion is not a new concept.

I think most of us can attest to noticing how our fave and fabulous Fashion Instagrammers manage to turn their brands into mommy brands seamlessly by featuring themselves in matching stylized outfits with their baby.

When celebrities who are most famous for one thing, like acting, being on a reality TV sow, modeling, do this, they are accused of wearing their baby as an accessory.

I think Victoria Beckham might have been the first referenced that way after she welcomed her last child and only daughter Harper in 2011, but certainly, I think we all can agree, that if we were to crown a champion celeb who appears best styled with a child, Kylie Jenner would be crowned the queen.

I’ve scrolled through my Insta feed and identified about 10 that look to use their babies as accessories the most/best. I’m not judging. Not saying it’s good or bad, but visually, they look so well coordinated and stylized, we cannot help but to take notice, and stare in awe!

In the next few days, I’ll share a few posts outlining the 10 celebrity women I think accessorize their personal brands with their baby the most/best.

Stay Tuned, but do drop me a note at jj (at) bellyitchblog.com if you have a candidate that should definitely be on this list.

 

Alexis Fields and Tamera Mowry-Housley collab On Family Winery

collage of Alexis Fields and Housley Napa valley

I love it when I see Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums in partnership with one another.

More common, I see some of the women featured on this blog wearing the designs of other celeb moms previously showcased. Think Georgina Chapman, Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney and others but this weekend, alum Alexis Fields designed the wine tasting room for fellow Bumpwatch alum Tamera Mowry-Housley.

Fields, a former child star and sis to Kim Fields (Facts of Life, Living Single, Real Housewives of Atlanta), turned her friend and one time Sister, Sister co-star Mowry-Housley’s new venture into a dream by working on the interior of the venue, a labor of love for The Real panel talk show host and her family’s venture, Housley Napa Valley.

Fields shared the unveiling to her followers and fans on Instagram.

This weekend was filled with love and new/old friends at the grand opening of @housleynapa. During this project, we became family. It was such a group effort and couldn’t have been accomplished without the love and dedication of each person involved. So many incredible talents pushed through to make @tameramowrytwo and @adamhousley’s vision a reality. I adore these two and it is always an absolute pleasure to work with them. Tamera, I couldn’t ask for a better design twin. I love how we get each other and support one another. Thank you for always trusting me with projects so personal to you. I cherish our connection. Adam, the brother I never wanted….but I’m so glad I got. I’m so proud of you and, I hate to admit it, but your brilliance and determination inspire me. @kennedybuilt, Dave, you are the most incredible contractor I’ve ever worked with. You and the guys made it a joy every single day. I’m so glad that you and @aprilkennedy found your way into my life. You two and the entire team (Uncle Richie, Josh, Dave, Chaz, Chappy, Spiro…and I know I’m forgetting someone but the love is the same) are amazing. I’m grateful that your incredible skills brought this design to life. And last but definitely not least, #TimMowry, I call you the Heart of Housley. You work the hardest and always still have a smile to offer and a pat on the back. You make everyone feel at home with your warm, loving personality. Thank you for having my back. I have yours, forever. I hope everyone will go and visit #housleynapavalley. It’s such an awesome place to be!!!! And I’m not saying that just because I designed it!!!! ❤️

Fields even gave folks a taste of the work in progress last month.

Nice! Congrats to both women and their families!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Married!

Today, Suits actress Meghan Markle and her fiancé married at the St. George Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The bride looked elegant and radiant in a simple but classic long sleeve satin gown by Givenchy with a cathedral train. She also wore a heirloom tiara, little make up and tiny silver  studded earrings with hair hair simple. Nothing ornate or over-the-top.

The ceremony infused her African American culture with British traditon. The Kingdom Choir, a predominantly black Christian gospel choir from South London performed a marvelous rendition of the Ben E. King R&B song “Stand By Me” during the ceremony and the Gospel version of “Amen” during the recession, and ended it with “This Little Light Of Mine” which is commonly sung in black churches.

An American Episcopalian clergy, Bishop Michael Curry, gave a spirited and passionate 20-minute love-themed sermon that invoked quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr. and scripture.

It has been the talk of the Internet because of how different it is from the usual stoic sermons heard at formal Royal religious ceremonies.

A 19-year old cellist with Sierra Leonean and Caribbean heritage from a large musical family, Sheku Kanneh-Mason beautifully performed a number of selection.

It was a preeminent event witnessed by thousands who lined the streets along the route to the chapel and the millions watching on Tv and screens across the globe.

Along with Markle’s brand new sister in law Pippa Middleton who is expecting her first child, also in attendance were new moms, Pippa’s sister Kate Middleton, Amal Clooney and Serena Williams with their respective spouses Best Man Prince William, George Clooney and Alexis Ohanian.

Vet Mom designer, tastemaker and Spice Girl alum Victoria Beckham and her hubby David Beckham were there too looking debonair and dapper. Oh Lady Oprah Winfrey attended along with the usual band of royals and British celebs!

Congrats!

Monica Brown is Our 2018 Posh Style Mom Icon!

It’s been a minute since we proclaimed a celebrity mom as a fashion style icon. After stalking Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum singer Monica Brown’s Instagram page and various presses sightings of the fabulous singer, the editors at Bellyitch have determined that the mom to stylish three is deserving to be our 2018 honoree!

For those unfamiliar, this recognition is given to a celebrity mom, usually one who has more than one child, who also has displayed effortless style, not necessarily created by a stylist, who inspires others and Monica is it!

We love the R&B recording artist’s  Instagram posts which are reminiscent of what you’d  see on any “it” Fashion Grammer or Style Blogger’s feed.

Monica’s fashion aesthetic consists of lots of bold colors, thigh high boots and chic dusters. She isn’t afraid to switch up her hair color from crimson, to pitch black to platinum. The mom of three, including 4-year old daughter Laiyah, 9-year old son Romelo and 12-year son Rocko,  has worn down her hair bone straight, in a croute pixie cut or intertwined in waist-length faux locs.

Her page is bright and totally themed out, similar to other influencers out there! See it HERE!

Ms. Brown can do no wrong in our book. The Atlanta-based philanthropist is married to NBA player Shannon Brown since 2010 when the two wed in a secret ceremony. Monica is also step mom to Shannon’s son Shannon Brown, Jr. from a previous relationship. Laiyah is the couple’s only child together as Rocko and Romelo’s dad is Monica’s ex, actor and rapper Rodney Hill, Jr also known as Rocko

The last time we named someone this honor was 2017 and it was given to philanthropist and end ex model Helen Lasichanh, Pharrell’s wife. Before her, the honor was given to Kourtney Kardashian in 2015. Before her, in 2014, Jennifer Hudson, who was the fourth mom to a single child to get the award. Before her, P!nk got it in 2012. And former First Lady Michelle Obama was dubbed an icon in 2011. Other designees include, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Kelly RipaVictoria BeckhamTichina Arnold and  Christina Milian.

Here is a quick rundown of some of ourm fave looks Monica has rocked over the years as shared in her super fly Insta!

Eva Longoria Honored with Walk Of Fame Star, Promotes New Movie On Kimmel

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. 

 The Devious Maids alum recently stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote her role in Overboard, a gender flipped remake of the Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawa cult classic film. 

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.”

20 Couture Kids Pieces to Get For Your Posh Tots Today



A lot of people admire the the couture clothes worn by children of wealthy celebs like Blue Ivy, North West, Harper Beckham and Princess Charlotte , but in today’s age, it is not uncommon for non-celebrity kids of rich parents to dress similar.

A few years ago, we did a post on New York Post  piece highlighting some of the affluent parents who spend loads of money outfitting their children as young as a few months old in super expensive couture and designer kids clothing.

One Brooklyn mom, Priscilla Monteiro, purchased for her then 5-month old daughter Yasmine and then 4-year old girl Vera outfits that cost over $1400 total each to wear to a swanky industry party on a yacht during the Cannes Films Festival. Another mom, Danielle Fornes, a blogger and former educator, mixed up high end  with affordable pieces but still didn’t think twice about dressing her daughter Jolie in a $395 Ralph Lauren dress and $75 Nordstrom ballet flats.

Another Brooklyn mom Sharra Dade told the paper she dresses her daughter Alyssa who is a child model and actress in upscale clothing because of all the industry events she attends with celebrities. As the Post noted,  Salma Hayek dresses her daughter, Valentina, in Gucci, and Victoria Beckham, dresses Harper, often in Burberryand Stella McCartney.

Fornes made a business out of it, charging Upper West Side parents $200 per hour and $150 for an additional child to dress their kids for upscale events and parties, and essentially to  “keep up with the Joneses.”

“These children on the Upper West Side go to a lot of parties, and though the mothers are friends, it’s embarrassing if their son or daughter is wearing the same outfit as someone else,” Fornes told the New York Post. 

It’s a lucrative field and one that many of the top fashion houses aren’t leaving on the table. Roberto CavalliMarc JacobsBurberry, Chloe and other top designer lines all have children’s lines of clothing launched within the last few years.later consigns the clothes that Alyssa wears only once or twice.

And business is booming.

Heidi Lieske of the store Be Mini Couture said “many of our customers are affluent 30- and 40-somethings influenced by mommy blogs and actors who appear with their kids in celebrity magazines.”

Besides Khloe Kardashian, 10 Other Celebs Who Had Sponsored Baby Showers

khloe b aby shower

Some people are baffled by the fact that a corporate entity or brand, Amazon.com, sponsored Khloe Kardashian‘s lavish baby shower for her soon-to-be daughter with beau Tristan Thompson.

It is not uncommon for moms and dads-to-be to receive multiple baby showers. Often times, a family member or close friend will host one for close ties, the workplace will throw a work shower and if there is family in a remote location, there will be a shower thrown there so those back home can also celebrate and shower the new parents.

For celebrities, often times brands and media organizations will also host a shower as the case with Khloe’s.  The following celebs had brands sponsor their showers

1.Danielle Jonas and her husband Kevin celebrated a baby shower thrown by Fit Pregnancy magazine.

2. Burt’s Bees was among the sponsors of Kourtney Kardashian’baby showerwhen she was pregnant with daughter Penelope.

3. Le Bebe CoCo  was among Kristin Cavallari‘s baby shower sponsors

4. And  also Holly Madison‘s who donated her gifts to the charity Baby2Baby.

5. Target hosted Beverley Mitchell’s baby shower.

6. The Sopranos Jamie Lyn-Sigler donated some of her baby shower finds to the Baby Buggy charity.

7. Several liquor companies provided the libations for cocktails served up atLove and Hip Hop’s  Yandy Smith‘s baby shower.

8. Jaime King enjoyed some fab brand goodies at her shower.

9. Ecoya‘s Sweet Pea & Jasmine home fragrance collection, a pink Quinny Buzz Special Edition stroller, a mamaRoo baby swing, a pink Hoppop Bath tub, a pink Little Giraffe Luxe Blanket, a Timi and Leslie diaper bag and a 5 ft. custom-made giraffe by Melissa and Doug all contributed to Victoria Beckham‘s baby shower.

10. Belly Bandit sponsored Jewel’s baby shower.

There you have it! One of the perks of being a celebrity and being hugely influential!

These Were the Top 14 Most Anticipated Celebrity Births of All Time

We can safely say that if and when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcome their first child, the occasion will be included in the short list of anticipated babies of all time which include the other Hollywood actress to welcome a child with a Prince.

1 Grace Kelly, a Hollywood legend, captivated the nation after she married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, to become princess consort of Monaco, and the world watched closely as they started a family. On April 19, 1958,  presented her newborn son Albert to residents of the principality on April 19, 1958, from the balcony of the palace, along with their daughter Caroline.

2. Before then, over in the states comedienne Lucille Ball and husband Desi Arnaz‘s son, Desi Jr, born on January 19, 1953, was most anticipated. That baby was the first to grace the cover of TV Guide in April 1953 with cover headline, “Lucy’s $50,000,000 baby.”
