Co-Existing: Breastfeeding, Motherhood and Glam Squads

celebrity glam squad breastfeeding

In Hollywood (and Bollywood) getting pregnant and having a family can disrupt a woman’s career but not so much anymore.
Motherhood isn’t halting opportunities and production can and do work around a star’s pregnancy. In recent years, many celebrity parents are showing their social media fans that they don’t let motherhood interfere with their work either. They can do both.
Gisele Bundchen‘s famous breastfeeding while getting glam shot was controversial because vanity and glamity aren’t supposed to co-exist with motherhood and breastfeeding, socially.

But they can co-exist and since Bundchen’s photo, other celebrity women like Lily Aldridge, Molly Sims, Kim Kardashian, Ali Larter, Terri Seymour and most recently, Kandi Burruss have shared photos of themselves tending to their babies while getting glammed up for an event.

Perfect and just in  time to update last year’s list of celebrity glam squads.  Last year, I hunted down the various glam squad photos celebs have posted on Instagram, WhoSay and Twitter. This small team that help get a celeb woman ready for an event, award show or other red carpet moment consist usually of a hairstylist, a manicurist, a stylist, a make-up artist and a personal assistant. They work in tandem and sometimes simultaneously and the glam squad photo shows them in action.

Of course, most of the glam squad photos are staged. Let’s be real. I wouldn’t want to be having my hair hot curled while my head is being maneuvered and shifted by the make up artist.  Ouch. I’ve had a curling iron dropped on me before and I have the scar still to prove it.

Also, showing off your glam squad is another way of telling your followers and fans that you are that special that you can’t get dressed on your own.  This is not shade. I’d hire myself a team in a hot second!  And you know this because even famous stylists who once were glam squad members are now celebrities in their own right. (think June Ambrose and Rachel Zoe)

These days, you can even rent one.  Companies like Miami-based GlamSquad (pictured above) will bring a team to you starting at $75. Not bad!

Last fall, Her Campus ranked some of the squad members of the biggest celebrities whose work we see on the faces and hair of influential women.

Here are some of the glam squads we’ve seen posted on social media recently.

Bellyitch Bumpwatch Alums Married to Professional Athletes

talls and smalls
Kristin Cavallari‘s second pregnancy with her husband Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler reminded us that many of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums are married and/or partners with professional athletes.

Like Cavallari, who is a shoe designer and TV host, Gisele Bundchen is also married to an NFL quarterback, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

quarterbacks
It’s always interesting to note the height difference with some pairs, like: Adrienne Bosh and her husband Miami Heat NBA player Chris Bosh, Nashville actress Hayden Panattiere  and her fiance Heavyweight boxing champ Wladimir Klitschko, and Savannah Brinson and Cleveland Cavaliers NBA player LeBron “King” James (in article header).

kerry and kim
Scandal‘s Kerry Washington keeps her relationship and marriage to hunky former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha secret but when spotted out, they both look adorbs together, as do Kim Zolciack-Biermann  and her husband Troy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons. Though, the very gorgeous Biermanns are very public as can be seen up and down Kim’s Instagram page.

Soccer wives3
And the “other” footballers (soccer) from across the ocean include Caroline Berg Eriksen and her husband Norwegian Premier League football player Lars-Kristian Eriksen, and the very fashionable and chic A-List couple Victoria Beckham and her retired football star spouse David Beckham. 

hockey wives

Representing the Hockey League are Hilary Duff  and her Canadian professional hockey player estranged hubby Mike Comerie  (whom she is currently divorcing from) and Carrie Underwood with her NHL Nashville Predators hubby  Mike Fisher.

shannon and evelyn
 Finally, Monica Brown  and her ex NBA star hubby Shannon Brown have one of the most endearing relationships and a wonderful blended family. Same with Evelyn Lozada and her hubby LA Dodgers Major League  baseball star hubby Carl Crawford.

Beautiful people all around!

Weekend Mom All Black Style Guide: SPLURGE or SAVE

The weekend is here. If you’re not hold up and snowed in like many in various parts of the United States, you may be looking for a cute and chic weekend look or style inspiration.

Today, I’m into black. Well, everyday I’m into black, and not just because it is slimming but because it’s an easy color to appear chic and put together in if you’re going to do monochromatic.

I’ve curated some top celebrity looks from moms we’ve featured here in the past including Gwen Stefani, Gisele Bundchen and Alessandra Ambrosio who were spotted looking fab in recent weeks in all black.

I’ve included a splurge version that includes some of the actual designers the celebs are in and a SAVE version that cost about $100 or less.

The Super Bowl 2015 Commercials moms loved most

Congrats to Tom Brady the husband of our two-time Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Gisele Bundchen  and his fellow players and team, the New England Patriots on their SuperBowl win. 
Since many of us who watched tonight’s game were just there for the commercials and not necessarily for the sport, here are the fave commercials the moms loved the most:
One of the winners of this year’s Doritos “crash the Superbowl” contest Scott Zabielski did a great job with his hilarious commercial that featured a baby! We love babies here!

Dodge‘s commercial with people 100 years and older providing age-old wisdom was great and inspirational!

Microsoft‘s commercial about a 6-year old Braylon O’Neill who was born without tibia and fibular bones in both his legs had us in tears and happy at the same time:

And we were in tears over the Toyota commercial “To Be Dad” saluting great fathers! Yes! just Yass!!

And Dove too kept us weeping with its #RealStrength Dove Men + Care dad tribute:

And as long as the waterworks are going, how about Proctor and Gamble‘s “Like A Girl” commercial? *sniff* If you didn’t see this campaign which launched about a year ago, you may have been upset about it at first until you realize it is an empowerment message! Good job!

T-Mobile hired our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kim Kardashian to do a spoof of one of those cause commercials but this time about losing your unused data. Check it:



Mercedes-Benz’ classic take on The Tortoise and the Hare fable was cute and effective because everyone can relate to the Tortoise and root him on:



We love puppies too so, naturally, the Budweiser commercial featuring a man, his puppy and some horses was another fave:

What mom doesn’t like a campaign that will get their adult kids to call them or give them free hugs!

And you get a free meal to boot! Nice, McDonald’s:

Esurance scored big with a funny commercial about the importance of getting an insurance plan tailored to you and just you, not sort of you. Extra points for giving Lindsay Lohan a gig! She needs as many as she can get.





And the most unfortunate went to Nationwide who decided to draw on the heartstrings of every mom with the endearing sad story of a little boy declaring all the wonderful possibilities in life he wouldn’t get to experience…because he died! From falling out the window or drowning in a tub or drinking Drano! Wow!

But luckily, they did score big with their commercial before featuring comedienne Mindy Kaling!

Top 10 Boy & Girl old-fashioned names becoming more popular.

It warmed my heart so see that traditional names are coming back into style and are becoming more popular among parents. Babysitting.net chronicled the top 10 girl and boy names making a comeback.
Girls’ Names
  1. Anna – “Anna” is one of the girls’ names that never seems to go completely out of style. Originating from the Greek or Latin version of the Hebrew name “Hannah,” Anna means “grace” and came in at number thirty-eight on the list of most popular girls’ names in 2011.
  2. Charlotte – The French feminine diminutive of “Charles,” Charlotte’s meaning, “free man,” has masculine connotations. Still, Charlotte was the twenty-seventh most popular name in 2011 and is the name of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze, Jr.’s daughter.
  3. Ella – At number twelve on the list of most popular girls’ names for 2011 is “Ella,” which is of Germanic origination and means “all, completely; fairy maiden.” Mark Wahlberg, Ben Stiller, Eric Clapton and John Travolta all have daughters with this old-fashioned moniker.
  4. Eva – The Latin form of the Hebrew name “Eve,” meaning “life,” Eva is eighty-third on the list of most popular girls’ names for 2011. Derivations Ava and Eve are also very popular.
  5. Grace – A virtue name meaning exactly what it says, “Grace” is number sixteen on the list of most popular girls’ names for 2011 with notable choices by celebrity parents Lance Armstrong and Christy Turlington.
  6. Julia – Derived from Latin and meaning “youthful,” Julia was the fifty-seventh most popular name for baby girls in 2011.
  7. Lucy – The English feminine variation of “Lucius,” Lucy was the seventy-second most popular name for girls born in 2011. While it may be most memorably connected to a certain flame-haired comedienne, “Lucy” was also chosen by country crooner Zac Brown for his daughter.
  8. Rose – Latin for “rose, a flower,” Rose is an old-fashioned name that has enjoyed something of a revival. At number two-hundred and ninety-one in 2011, “Rose” was the final selection of Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck, Jon Stewart and Ewan McGregor. The presence of the boys’ name “Jack” also calls into question the influence of the re-release a certain epic film about a doomed romance on new parents.
  9. Stella – From the Latin for “star,” Stella is the seventy-third most popular name on the 2011 list. Chosen by both Paul McCartney and, more recently, Matt Damon, Tori Spelling and Dave Matthews, Stella’s popularity is still rising.
  10. Violet – Latin for the color and the flower, Violet comes in at number one-hundred and one for 2011 and was also chosen by Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck for their eldest daughter.

Boys’ Names
  1. Andrew – Meaning “strong and manly,” the name “Andrew” is of Greek derivation and enjoys a perennial popularity. At number sixteen on the list of most popular names for baby boys in 2011, one Harvard study claims that it is the most popular name for boys born to highly educated parents.
  2. Benjamin – From Hebrew meaning “son of the right hand,” Benjamin was the nineteenth most popular name for baby boys in 2011. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her quarterback husband Tom Brady chose “Benjamin” for their son, as did John Travolta and Kelly Preston.
  3. Charles – French from German, “Charles” means “free man” and was the sixty-second most popular name for boys in 2011. Celebrities Jodie Foster and Russell Crowe both named their sons Charles, with the shortened “Charlie” also quite popular.
  4. Harry – A diminutive of Henry meaning “estate ruler,” Harry is becoming more popular than ever due to the choices of Princess Diana, David Letterman and Billy Bob Thornton as a name for their sons, along with the immense popularity of the Harry Potter series.
  5. Henry – Enjoying it’s highest spot on the list of popular boys’ names since 1956, “Henry,” also meaning “estate ruler” came in at number fifty-seven in 2011. Julia Roberts, Minnie Driver, Heidi Klum and Colin Farrell all have sons named Henry.
  6. Jack – A diminutive of “John” meaning “God is gracious,” Jack was the forty-fifth most popular name for boys born in 2011. Matt Lauer, Luke Perry and Meg Ryan are just a few of the celebrities who chose this name for their sons.
  7. Leo – From Latin for “lion,” Leo came in at number one-hundred and sixty-seven in 2011 for popular boy’s names, and was chosen by NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon as a name for his son.
  8. Jacob – From Hebrew meaning “He grasps the heel. Supplanter,” “Jacob” was the most popular name for little boys born in 2011. Bob Dylan named his son Jakob, with Stephenie Meyer dubbing her leading werewolf “Jacob” in her phenomenally popular Twilight books.
  9. Eli – Moving from number two-hundred and thirty-five in 2000 to number sixty-five in 2010, Eli is a Hebrew name meaning “uplifted.”
  10. William – The third most popular name for boys in 2011, William is of English from German derivation and means “resolute protection.” With the marriage of Britain’s Prince William, the name has become even more high-profile.
