Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wedding photos in case you haven’t already seen them by now

Baby North’s parents married this weekend at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
E! released exclusive photos this weekend, all of which you can see HERE!
The bride wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture lace gown and a long silk veil during the ceremony, while Kanye was fitted in a custom Givenchy tuxedo. Lorraine Schwartz designed their wedding rings.
Guests included Hip Hop/R&B royalty (Common, John Legend, Tya, Big Sean) and Fashion’s finest (Riccardo Tisci, Rachel Roy, Giussepe Zanotti) and others. All were told to come dressed in black as the siblings and other family carefully orchestrated their weekend wardrobes so they would only be photographed in black or white or a combination of both.
Here are some photos of the events leading up the event including a week in Paris, France, the bachelorette party, the couple and family having dinner at the palace in Versailles and other amazing European locales, shopping at Balmain and other couture and notable Paris design houses, taking in the sites and other events, as captured by various photography outlets invited to capture the big day:
ENJOY!

Kim Kardashian and Ciara do newborn shopping (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

We missed this but wanted to share some pics of Ciara and Kim Kardashian coming out of a Bel Bambini store last month. CiCi and Kim have been friends for several years and the Body Party singer has appeared on several episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

This outing is also ripe for mom to 7-month old daughter North with Kanye West.  Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney, who has a one-year old daughter Penelope and 3-year old son Mason, are said to be designing a line of baby clothes. 

We have featured the store in the past as THE destination for pregnant celebrities and given this week’s revelation from Ciara’s fiance Future about his woman’s obsessive nesting and baby-prepping, it’s appropriate to share today even though we’ve changed blog policy to avoid featuring images taken by dangerous stalking unwilling photography subjects. 
Just this once! Enjoy!

Entrepreneur and Reality Tv star Khloe Kardashian threw a lavish neutral-colored bear themed baby shower for her BFF, actress and model Malika Haqq, over the weekend.

The event was held at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss organized the luxe celebration.

The mom-to-be wore a muted strappy floor length fish tail, bump-hugging jersey dress with her hair pulled back in a sleek ponytail and subtle and soft makeup.

Guests included family and friends and fellow celebs like Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Tamar Braxton, Don’t Be Tardy’s Brielle Biermann and her mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann and others. Haqq’s twin sister Khadijah Haqq was also on hand.

Attendees were treated to goodies like sweet honey tea in adorable bear jars,petite pastries, a multi-tiered cake  and cereal because according to Khloe in an insta story video, Malika craved cereal for most of her pregnancy.

They also played typical baby shower games like the “can’t say ‘baby’” game, the guess Malika’s baby belly girth and the guess the baby’s delivery date and guess the number of cookies in the jar game.

They went home with cute favors like baby bottle shaped bottle openers.

Malika is expecting a baby boy, the first child with her on-again-off-again boyfriend, rapper O.T. Genasis.

“A BEARy beautiful Baby Shower!!” Khloe captioned a series of photos of the event. “I have been planning Malika’s baby shower in my head for quite some time. Malika was very specific with not wanting color. So this was the only color we were able to get away with LOL It turned out beautifully!”

Everyone wore brown, white and other muted and neutral colors to the event to accommodate Malika’s request.

“I could not thank @mindyweiss @andrew_mindyweiss @jeffleatham enough!!” Khloe added thanking the event planning staff. “I know I’m a lot at times because I’m so specific and I love to micro manage but you guys always go over the top. You surpass any dream that I have ever conjured up in my head as to how I want something to look. Every time I am WOWED by your work and perfection! Thank you guys for being the best! You literally are my dream team! Thank to everyone who helped put this spectacular shower together!”

Here are some videos and photos of the fun event that the  host, guests and vendors posted on their respective social media pages



 

The New Season of ‘Revenge Body’ Starts Soon

Khloe Kardashian Revenge Body promo image

I was catching up on the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on E! and noticing how baby sister of the trio of Dash sisters, Khloe Kardashian looks super thin and a lot like her Instagram photos that people keep accusing her of achieving by photoshopping.

I thought, yeah, it’s pretty hard to photo shop video! She really worked hard to shed pounds after giving birth to her daughter True last year. And after what happened with her ex Tristan Thompson‘s serial cheating, she is really living the Revenge Body mantra.

Then I remembered that a new season of her Revenge Body challenge show on the E! network starts soon.

A teaser released by the network summarizes all of the exciting activities we can expect for the next iteration of the popular spin off.

Per the new footage, Khloe Kardashian‘s transformation series will “redefine” revenge. Not only will contestants shed pounds with the help of Revenge Body‘s trusted trainers, but the participants will also bulk up on muscle as seen on a contestant who has been genetically thin his entire life.

“I only know how to do skinny,” one male participant admitted in a confessional. In the promo reel, fitness and lifestyle consultant Ashley Borden assured the client that he could put on about 30 pounds.

Of course, this won’t occur without some “blood, sweat and cheers.

“It’s not just about today. It’s about the rest of your life,” Luke Milt, former a professional rugby player and show motivator says.

All of this wouldn’t be possible without the wise guidance of Revenge Body‘s host. True story.

“You look amazing,” a contestant noted to Kardashian.

“Honey, I’m trying to keep up with you,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star happily responded.

For all of this and more, be sure to watch the new promo above!

Watch the season 3 premiere of Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian Sunday, July 7 at 9 p.m., only on E!

The 5 Clues Fans Used to Determine Nicki Minaj was Pregnant Before She Announced

Congratulations are in order to rapper Nicki Minaj  who is expecting her first child with her husband Kenneth Petty as she announced her news on her Instagram yesterday to the surprise of none of the Internet sleuths who had already recognized all the clues that she was pregnant, beginning with speculation last month when she posted a curious photo trying to conceal her bump in high rise bikini bottoms.

“Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes,” Minaj captioned the third in a set of formal colorful maternity photos where she is sitting on a pink couch. The last  of the photos is her draped in white in an editorial shot made to look angelic, taken by famed photographer David LaChappelle.

Part of being a celebrity woman of child bearing years is that you have people constantly speculating about whether or not you are pregnant. It can frustrating especially if you had been actively trying but keep having to see and respond or ignore rumors published in the tabloids or social media. Model Chrissy Teigen, actress Gabrielle Union and many others suffered with infertility while batting down insenstive demands from people asking when they would be having their first chilld.

However, when the moment that a star does get pregnant, she then has the challenge that many women have of trying to keep it private for at least the first three months when the risk for miscarriage is the highest. After the first trimester, the chances of that mom-to-be carrying a baby full term and having a healthy labor and delivery shoots up exponentialy.

Still, sometimes the public guesses right because there are tell tale signs and Minaj displayed them ALL!!!

After the Super Bass performer made her announcement, many fans said in the comment sections under news reports that the news was of no surprise to them based on the various clues that exist when a woman in the spotlight is hiding her pregnancy:

1. She only shared head shots in social media

For women who famously show off their fab bods at every chance they get, seeing them suddenly stick to posting head shots inscial meida is a dead giveaway that they are trying to perhaps hide weight gain in the tummy area and elsewhere.

For the weeks leading up to the announcement the Anaconda rapper shared photos of her self performing songs with only her head in the shot.

2. She wore clothes that covered her belly.

You can hide your body by carefully selecting what you post but unless you plan to live a hermit life or escape to another country, then there is a high liklihood that the paparazzi will spot you out and about.

When Kylie Jenner was secrety pregnant with her daughter Stormi, fans speculated her condition because she wore baggy clothes. Her sister, Khloe Kardashian, revealed that she used an A-line coat to hide her bump until she announced the news that she was expecting a baby.

If you are pregnant during Award season, as Cardi B was, you can get your stylist to design outfits that creatively conceal your bump.

Most recently, currently pregant stars, actress Sophie Turner and model Gigi Hadid were spotted in super baggy clothes and reported frequently as being pregnant in the gossip press. The oversized PJs were a dead give away Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik were expecting their first child together even before she confirmed her news last week.

3. She drops out of public light



Similarly, it is always suspicious when women who usually crave the spotlight drop out of the public eye. That too is a signal they may be secretly expecting.  On the real, Minaj literally told the world she was baby making when she quit music via Twitter last September to start her family.  But because she had quit Twitter before after having beefs with her ex Meek Mill, rap nemesis Remy Ma, not a lot of people took the announcement seriously.

The quarantine period was very convenient for Jessica Biel to lay low and incubate a whole other person. She and her musician/producer husband Justin Timberlake reportedly welcomed their second child recently and no one knew. They tore a page out of Ana Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias‘ book when those two had a whole set of twins on the download back in 2017.

Some have tried to keep the secret for the total nine months and have come close.

Evangeline Lily and Jennifer Hudson got caught by paparazzi both around 8 months pregnant. They were in remote places where there is no Hollywood scrutiny but still got busted.

Others succeed.

In 2018,  How to Get Away with Murder star Karla Souzaand in 2014, Ozark star Laura Linney announced the birth of their first child, respectively, after the baby was already born.

4. She Subconsciouly (or her partner) Touches her Belly

Last month, Minaj gave yet another clue when she showed a video of Petty rubbing her belly. In other years, the maternal subtle cradle of the tummy is a sign a woman is expecting. It’s a subcouncous and natural maneuver which is a sign.

5. Her face looks fuller



Weight gain is a sign of pregnancy and even for women who manage to not pack on the pounds, a dead giveaway is a fuller rounder face. Many fans speculated and noticed that in the video for Trollz with Ta, Minaj face looked significantly more cherubic than usual.

Well there you have it. If you are a woman in the lime light and seek to totally hide your pregnancy from the media and the public, avoid doing any of the above. Good luck!

Malika Haqq Celebrates Baby Boy at Another Baby Shower



It looks like the lovely Malika Haqq was treated to another baby shower over the weekend.

No confirmation but, perhaps it was a smaller, more intimate one with her very close family and perhaps the family of dad of baby, rapper O.T. Genasis’ family.

The actress and TV personality posted a photo of herself in a sash with inflated balloons spelling out “baby boy” above her

She captioned an Instagram slide show post that she also shared to her Twitter account, “I couldn’t be happier.”

The photos featured the reality TV star sitting in front of a fireplace in a strapless baby blue bump-hugging dress while wearing one of those “mom-to-be” sashes that baby shower hosts make the guest of honor wear. (Smile)

Last month, her bestie Khloe Kardashian threw her a very elaborate and lush bear-themed baby shower.

Haqq used the occasion to confirm that that OT was the dad as he was present at the event, as well.

Meanwhile, Haqq has been sharing lovely photos of herself in neutral clothing while promoting her fashion partner, online boutique Pretty Little Things.

We love her new photos

Guests enjoyed custom onesie cookies, cupcakes & little prince cake from Sweet Bake Shop.

Among attendees were new mom model Shalina Gutierrez and actress best known for being Khloe Kardashian‘s BFF, mom-to-be Malika Haqq who showed up with her twin sister Kadijah.

“Coming down from an awesome weekend,” Christina captioned a photo slide of images from the baby shower. “Our little Prince is gonna be very welcome to some loving fam and friends.”

 

 

She added: “Thank you guys for making it out,” the celebrity mom exclaimed. “Especially those who flew in so last minute,” Christina said. “I felt the love big time! You nearly brought me to tears to see you just POP UP! Those who couldn’t make it you were there with us at heart. We adore our gifts! Time is ticking and baby boy is kicking! We’re ready!”

 

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.

The women of Keeping Up With The Kardashians took home the People’s Choice Award for best reality show and Khloe won for Best Reality TV Star beating out fellow mom Kandi Burruss of the Real Housewives of Atlanta show of the Bravo TV franchise. She didn’t realize it and failed to thank her fans for voting for her because the show combined the wins in one presentation.

She took to Twitter to defend herself when a fan called her out for not acknowledging the honor.
