Anelina Jolie’s wedding dress had her kids’ artwork imprinted on it

 

Since everyone seem to be talking about it, we thought we too would share a sneak peak at Bellytich Bumpwatch alum Angelina Jolie‘s wedding dress.
In an international multi-publication deal, Jolie and her husband Brad Pitt brokered with Great Britain’s HELLO!  magazine and America’s  People  magazine, readers get to see inside pics and learn more about the surprise nuptials that took place this past August 23 in a chapel at the couple’s Chateau Miraval, the family’s French estate in the village of Correns.

Most gasp-worthy is Jolie’s wedding gown. 
The front of the satin dress designed by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace is not as controversial, but the back is causing lots of buzz because it includes their children’s artwork. 
“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family,” the newlyweds told HELLO! adding that it was  “great fun putting it together.”
It was also a low budget affair — sort of.
Pit wore a suit he already wore and their 10-year old son Pax made the wedding cake.  
People reports:
“Eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, walked their mom down the aisle; flower girls Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, tossed petals gathered from the garden; and Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers. The kids also helped write their parents’ vows. And Pax baked the cake! “
The couple told the magazine, “it was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter.” 
This is Pitt’s second marriage. He wed Jennifer Aniston in 2000 before divorcing in 2005.
Jolie was previously married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller for three years in the late 90s and to Billy Bob Thornton for three years before divorcing in 2003.
Congrats!

Kelly Rowland is not the first celebrity to work out intensely while pregnant

Just saw on The Wendy Williams Show mention that Kelly Rowland is apparently catching a lot of flak from fans on the Internet over her Instagram pics showing that the Destiny’s Child band member and chart topping solo artist has been having an active pregnancy which includes working out regularly.

Unfortunately, many of her critics must be unaware that maintaining an active lifestyle including regular exercise is actually recommended by doctors so long as it is done in moderation, is balanced with hydration and a healthy diet and is keeping with the type of activity the mom-to-be had before she got pregnant. In other words, inactive cubicle hermits shouldn’t be doing what she is doing to stay fit while pregnant but a globe-trotting performer who dances regularly can. Furthermore,  she is not the only physically active and currently pregnant celebrity. MTV’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who is expecting her second child currently with fiance Jionni LaValle,  frequenlty shares photos from the gym during this second pregnancy.
Also,  former WWE wrestler Stacy Keibler, who also known for being the long time ex girlfriend of George Clooney has been on several fitness magazines and done many interviews where she shares all of her work out secrets. She does Pilates 4 times a day and for the “Making of” video for her Fit Pregnancy cover shoot, she explained that she has been working out most days of her pregnancy doing  muscle toning work outs sometimes four times a day, playing tennis, hiking, golfing and meditating. Her trainer noted  in that Daily Mail article that said Keibler doesn’t eat junk food and eats clean. During her recent baby shower, hosts provided guests healthy  sugar-, dairy- and gluten-free foods. Again, it’s all about the type of woman she was before pregnancy. It doesn’t change after pregnancy and  just because you didn’t used to see it in social media doesn’t mean Rowland wasn’t a work out fiend before. 
Other celebrities like Married to Jonas star  Danielle Jonas, who recently welcomed her first child with husband Kevin Jonas, Instagrammed themselves working out often during their respective pregnancies and didn’t seem to get much push-back.
Alec Baldwin‘s Pilates Instructor wife Hilaria Baldwin,  Kristin Cavallari, Teresa Palmer and international model Doutzen Kroes all Instagrammed themselves working out during their pregnancies. (see above collage)

We are very proud of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Ivanka Trump, Daphne Oz, Kristin Cavallari, Danielle Jonas, Emily Deschanel, Molly Sims for their Fit Pregnancy  magazine covers and hope to see one of Kelly soon!

Beyonce and Kate Middleton expecting Baby #2…no really this time

The rumor mill is grinding and tongues are flapping about Beyonce and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge both expecting their second child each. Ordinarily, we pass on innuendo and suggestions because after all bump watch and speculation is often WRONG.  
However, today USA Today had the Bey news (albeit while erroneously using a 2013 E! story as a source) and International Business had the Kate Middleton news, despite the fact a couple months prior she was taking swigs of beer at an Australian rugby game. 
So…who wants to hedge bets on whether this time is for real. Only don’t ask Jennifer Aniston.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell says she’s considering having a baby (VIDEO)

Supermodel Naomi Campbell appeared on the Wendy Williams show for the first time ever today and during her interview told Wendy she would consider having children in the future. 
While on the show to plug tonight’s premiere of the second season of The Face her model competition show on the Oxygen network,  the host mentor and show’s executive producer talked with Williams about a wide variety of topics including babies!!
When Williams asked Campbell if she would ever consider starting a family, Campbell replied: 

“OK. Possibility. I absolutely adore [kids]. I adore. I have two orphanages in Kenya. Yeah. One in Jamaica. One in Cuba. I love kids. The right guy, or the right bank”

Alright now! Many A list celebrity moms (over 20 of them) have had babies in the later years, after age 40. 
And not everyone is waiting for the perfect man either. Last year, Spanish model Monica Cruz, sister to Penelope Cruz, welcomed her first child via an anonymous donor from a sperm bank because, as she stated last January,  she felt her clock was ticking and she didn’t want to wait for the right man to come along.

Come on with it, Ms. Naomi. A baby or babies would definitely rock and change her world! Wouldn’t it?

Happy Birthday, Kerry Washington!

Happy Birthday, Bellyitch Bumpwatch Babe and Mom-to-be, 
Kerry Washington

The Emmy-nominated star of Scandal turns 37 today.
Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha of the National Football League are expecting their first child together since marrying last summer.
The Golden Globe nominee has a fan in the First Lady of the United States too.
In an interview that aired yesterday with Ryan Secrest, Mrs. Michelle Obama said she enjoys Washington in the hit ABC drama about fictional crisis manager Olivia Pope who solves national and international crisis while balancing internal turmoil about having an affair with the fictional president.
Oooh! Too close for comfort? Not for Mrs. O who caught up on the series during a very long flight to her vacation home in Hawaii over the Christmas break.
“I watched all the seasons, I caught up on ‘Scandal,’ I had never watched it,” the first lady said. “I love Kerry Washington, she is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”

All about Idris Elba’s pregnant girlfriend Naiyana Garth who wore Tiffany Rose at the Golden Globes

Long Walk to Freedom actor Idris Elba attended the 71st annual Golden Globe awards Sunday, January 12 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills with his longtime pregnant girlfriend Naiyana Garth.


Elba was nominated for Best Actor in the Motion Picture Drama  for his role in the Freedom, the Nelson Mandela biopic and for Best Actor Miniseries or Television Film for his role in the BBC criminal drama Luther.   He didn’t walk away with either Sunday night. There’s always SAG and the Oscars, both coming up where he is also nominated.
Nonetheless, the British actor has much to look forward to with Garth who looked radiant in a black floor-length Tiffany Rose gown. 
The designer, which we have  featured before, has dressed our other current Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms-to-be Princess Madeliene of Sweden and No Doubt  lead vocalist Gwen Stefani.


Garth, a fellow Brit and celebrity make-up artist, tweeted to a friend in early October about being very early in her pregnancy.
She later deleted the account.
Despite being seen out and about at various events with Garth sporting a noticeable bump, Elba who stars in this Summer’s Thor  only confirmed the news  two months later in December.  
This will be their first child together.  Elba has an 11-year-old daughter named Isan from his marriage to ex-wife Dormowa Sherman. They live in Atlanta.
Garth reportedly attended Waldegrave School for Girls in London, then West Thames College in West London., Hello Beautiful  recently noted., adding that Garth’s career in make-up artistry started with humble beginnings at local mall counters. She worked her way up in the business to eventually to work on the faces of Jamie Oliver, Rupert Everett, Simon Bird, Freddie Fox, and Elba, hence how they met.
