French actress Marion Cotillard hit up Paris Fashion week to check out the Women’s wear Spring/Summer 2017 show of Christian Dior’s new creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri in a white ruched-front long sleeve coat shirt over a black print mini skirt paired with chic jeweled black t-bar heels and a cute box clutch.
The Inception star wore her hair pulled back in a single sleek pony and had on the the cutest cuff earrings.
The beautiful mom-to-be and her long time partner actor and director Guillaume Canet are expecting their second child together.
The star of the upcoming World War II spy drama Allied announced her pregnancy news amid controversy and on the heels of the divorce announcement of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
Canet and Cotillard are parents to a now 5-year old son, Marcel, born March 2011.

Blake Lively attended her assistant Jessica Snyder‘s wedding days after giving birth to her second child (whose gender I know but cannot reveal out of anonymity and in consideration of the privacy of Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds, but I couldn’t help but squeal that I know what she has. snicker.)

Vanessa Lachey is expecting her third child with husband Nick Lachey and shared the most adorable and creative onesie on Instagram. It was a shortsleeve Tee with the words, “Aint No Mama Like the One I Got.”
Clearly, it is is a twist off of the popular 1972 song by the group Four Tops, “Aint no woman like the one I got.”
“Littlest Lachey is already getting some fun swag!” the former MTV host and actress captioned the photo”Laundry time just got even MORE fun!!! I can’t take the cuteness of baby clothes!”
The former beauty pageant winner also shouted out Steller-Seven, the cute boutique that sells various baby and children’s clothes with that slogan on them.
The Lacheys are parents to 20-month old daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth and 4-year old son Camden John.
This week on The Real, TV host Tamera Mowry-Housley was out and her husband, FOX news correspondent, Adam Housley sat in her place doing hosting duties on the popular FOX network daytime panel talk show. During one segment, he updated us and dished on the couple’s adorable daughter Ariah turning one-year old soon.
Mowry-Housley, a two-time Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum was once voted by Bellyitch Readers as their fave pregnant celeb of 2012 and since then, she has gone on to make some super cute babies and we’ve gone on to stalk her very adorable IG shares. The staff thinks that Ariah looks like Adam and Aden like Tamera. A perfect blend. Here are our fave pics. Join us and her 3.6 Million followers on Instagram and get the dish behind these photos there:

* gush *
And we are in great company! I am friends with fellow top 15 blogger Jennifer Broget from Baby Making Machine since way before she had any kids. I also read her blog regularly. I subscribe to Pregnant Chicken. Blogger Amy from that site is a hoot! She has the best sense of humor around. Cafe Stir usually has the most unique and interesting stories. Very entertaining site! Fit Pregnancy has a plethora of wonderful lifestyle information for moms-to-be and parents in general. Celebrity Baby Scoop has been with us in the “bumpwatch” biz from the earlies. It is another wonderful source for bumpwatch news. The other winners are great too and I plan to check them out as well.
I want to shout out our team of writers, contributors, editors, social media managers and others who’ve worked on the blog over the years.
Thanks for the honor, Healthline. I think this is the 5th year on the list! We are going to wear our badge proudly. Check it out:
Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kenya Moore has talked about having a baby for several seasons on her hit BravoTV reality TV show and even went as far as froze some of her eggs and secured sperm from a bank. Now that she is seriously dating fitness trainer Matt Jordan, she’s amped up speculation that she actually is preggers.
Some gossip blogs have pointed out that she looks as if she has gained some weight and is not wearing figure hugging clothing as before. Last February, her co-star Phaedra Parks told a news outlet that she had heard rumors that Moore was indeed with child.
The former Miss America even talked about the IVF process to the media.
“It gets a little complicated, but when a woman ovulates, a certain day you have to come in to get tested to show how many follicles that you are making that ends up being eggs, the eggs that you have to retrieve and grow,” she told OK! magazine. “So it pretty much coincides with your cycle.”
Then, during a recent appearance on the late night show Watch What Happens Live, she teased to host Andy Cohen that she couldn’t confirm if she was pregnant, telling him he would have to wait like anyone else. She also made it a point to let a call-in inquirer know she was drinking water during the show which often features guests drinking alcoholic beverages while appearing on it.
It appears as she is eating up all the “bump watch” and is also egging it on. She recently posted a photo of herself in social media pushing a babuy stroller and captioned the photo“Practicing with #KingAndTwirl with the baby stroller.”
And recently she told BravoTV online:
If I were pregnant it would be a high risk pregnancy due to my age [She is 45 years old]. I feel more comfortable if and when my doctors feel I am in a safe stage to confirm a pregnancy. I appreciate all the amazing fans who are wishing me well. It feels good to know everyone is rooting for me and my happiness.
Good luck and God speed to her!
I seem to be slipping with my Bellyitch Bumpwatch coverage of the sixth Kardashian bumpwatch for us (3 for Kourtney, 2 for Kim and now the future Mrs. Angela Kardashian).
Apparently, the DC native returned home and was in my town two weeks ago at Bliss Nightclub in Washington, DC. I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and noticed a video of Blac Chyna and her fiance Rob Kardashian that my nightclub promoter friend Michael Jusu captured and shared on his Instagram.
The couple looked happy. You could barely tell that Chyna (real name Angela Renée White) is expecting back then. They looked very cute and happy. Rob was dressed in his signature black t-shirt and black jeans with a baseball cap.
Yesterday, the two were making an appearance at The Sky Beach Club at the Tropicana in Las Vegas. Besides her app and beauty lines, Chyna makes a pretty lucrative living doing nightclub and other event appearances. Must be nice to get paid to show up at places and just look pretty.
And she really seems to be good for Rob. He recently posted a before/after photo of himself crediting his fiance for helping him lose weight. He posted this pic last week. Nice!
Salon writer Nico Lang gives praise to Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling for being super private about their spawning offsprings. He also gives a pretty good run down on the “bumpwatch” and celebrity baby industry which is a multi-million dollar industry. It is not all damning, here is an excerpt:
Call it a win for privacy in the digital age, but even more than that, it’s heartening to see parents opt out of the toxic culture of celebrity baby worship that demands constant updates about famous offspring. Every single one of us should follow their lead.
This is an industry that treats children like corporate mergers, fashion icons, and objects of an almost religious devotion before they can even walk or talk, let alone sign an endorsement deal. When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony gave birth to twins in 2008, they pulled in what was then a record sum for the first photos of a celebrity couple’s children: $6 million. That total would be eclipsed within months. Knox and Vivienne, the fraternal twins of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, would quickly become household names from the moment they were born. Their debut into the limelight—courtesy of People magazine—netted $15 million. That’s more than most movies make in their opening weekend.
But no financial impact was more massive than the Royal Baby, an infant whose coming was such a media sensation that Prince George’s July 2013 birth was estimated to generate $400 million in revenue
for the U.K. economy. For celebrity news websites, the young royal’s birth signaled a boom time after a long drought:According to the New York Times
, US Weekly
had the biggest traffic day in its website’s history on July 23, the day that new mother Kate Middleton
finally vacated the hospital with her “bundle of baby joy.” The same was true for People’s site, which reported a nearly 50 percent boost in traffic on the very same day. The magazine’s print publication on the royal birth was its biggest-selling of the year.
At the time, the editor of the gossip website Hollywood Life, Bonnie Fuller, predicted that Prince George would remain a cash cow for tabloid publishers. “The royal baby will become a regular beat, just like Shiloh and Suri were the babies of six years ago,” Fuller told the New York Times, also referring to Suri Holmes-Cruise, the now 10-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. “The two babies that Hollywood Life audiences are going to be obsessed with are going to be Prince George and Kim Kardashian’s baby, North West.” US Weekly editor Mike Steele called it the “royal baby boom.”
