My Two Wrong Predictions About Baby West and Baby Sussex

Wrong and Wrong.

I speculated that perhaps Duchess Meghan of Sussex had given birth at home because she was not captured by photographers leaving her home or arriving.

However, last week, Kensington Palace revealed that the Suits actress, formerly Meghan Markle, gave birth.

Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor  was born at Portland Hospital, a private hospital on Great Portland Street in London, a copy of the baby’s birth certificate revealed.

With the baby overdue and her somewhat advance maternal age at 36, a hospital was probably better in case of an emergency.

Also, I was wrong about the name Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would have given their newest child, a son, born via surrogate last week.

I and other speculators the baby would be named Robert for two reasons. One, Kim showed an image of the name Robert during a Snapchat and during a recent episode of her reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashian a psychic in Bali told Kim and Khloe Kardashian their dad, Robert Kardashian, would be reincarnated in her son.

The couple named the newest arrival Psalm which is a Hebrew word for song and is the name of one of the books in the Bible. A source to E! News told the site that Kanye chose the name “and is a representation of their spirituality.”

The sources explained, “it was a very important to him, and Kim wanted the name to have a significance that held a true representation of their family, so she agreed on the name.”

Nice!

Well, you can’t win them all!

Saint Patrick’s Day Celebrating Celeb Babies

Some of our celeb moms and dads faves used Saint Patrick’s Day to dress up their little ones in festive green and share online.

Kate Hudson‘s daughter Rani Fujikawa looked so adorable; meanwhile Andy Cohen‘s 5-week old son Benjamin Allen was not having it.

Stormi Webster was while toddling around in a green romper in her mom Kylie Jenner’s Insta story. As was Mariah Carey‘s twins Rocco and Monroe.

Not to be outdone was True Thompson in a series of fun videos and pics mom Khloe Kardashian shared of her while she wore a pair of green mirror aviator shades, shamrock barrettes and a $550 pair of Giuseppe Zanotti, Jr

The Hate Meghan Markle Gets

This week, I was in awe to see all of the British and American press making a big deal over the fact that Serena Williams, Amal Clooney and Gayle King threw Meghan Markle a baby shower which some are estimating cost close to a $500,000, when you consider the security and private jet to NYC from the UK and back.

Some are discussing whether it was too lavish.

My thoughts: first, no one knows if that estimated number of the cost is entirely accurate.

Second: So what?

I’ve been covering celebrity baby showers for as long as this blog has existed, which is over 10 years, and I do not recall anytime that news and gossip outlets discussed the cost of a celebrity baby shower.

Granted, I do understand that baby showers are uncommon among the British, so any shower at any cost may seem exorbitant. However, Kensington Palace had to come out and state that Markle paid for the cost of travel and her stay herself.

They may have pointed out how lavish they were but none reported on the cost, to my recollection.

Let’s take a look at other celeb showers because, what does one expect from people who are rich and/or wealthy and have resources and funds to throw lavish affairs?

For example, Cardi B‘s shower featured a 16-foot topiary floral wall, room entrance ways that resembled a 6-car subway train, and several rooms draped in 26,000 pink and white flowers.

Vanessa Bryant and Kobe Bryant‘s shower featured a floral wall.

In June 2016, Nicky Hilton had a baby shower at The Towers at the top of  the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City. 

Kim Kardashian had what looks like a dozen cherry blossom trees in her baby shower venue for baby Chicago and her sister Kylie Jenner had an elaborate outdoor baby shower for baby Stormi.

Khloe Kardashian had tons of pink roses, topiary and florals at her shower.

Here are some snaps from baby showers Other celebs had:

Ciara

Naya Riviera

Adrienne Bosh

Tia Mowry Hardrict

Tamera Mowry-Housley

Jessica Simpson

Andy Cohen

Honestly, I think this young woman is getting more criticism than her predecessor non-royal wife, Duchess Catherine, Kate Middleton.

It reminds me of the criticism Michelle Obama received to the cost of her clothing, hullabaloo which was not similarly made over the cost of Barabara or Nancy Bush or Hillary Clinton‘s First Lady clothing prior.

Guardian v Godparent: Know The Difference/How To Pick Each

Parents Need To Know The Person Picked as  Godparent Has No Legal Rights Compared to a Guardian.

Recently, I was watching an early episode of the latest season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians when the issue of picking a Godparent and/or  Guardian for children came up when middle sister Khloe Kardashian struggled with the decision of who to appoint as guardian of her then soon-to-be-born daughter True in case something happened to her or True’s dad, Tristan Thompson.

It got me thinking to share with you readers who may be unsure who to pick to be the guardian of your children and to share some ingishts into the difference between a Godparent and a Guardian.

A lot of people do not understand the difference and mistakenly believe that a Godparent would be given a child to care for in case of a parent’s death. That is not true.

A godparent is essentially a spiritual role, not a legal one.

Its origins are religious, and although there are cultural variations, the role today is mainly a symbolic one.

A legal guardian, on the other hand, is the person who will make all the important decisions regarding your child’s welfare should you die or become incapacitated.

These decisions may have to do with where your child will live, go to school  and general care until the age of 18.

Again, your children’s godparents have no legal role when it comes to their protection and well-being after your death. A Guardian, however, does have a  legal role with long-term responsibilities with regards to their protection and well-being.

All Parents Should Have a Will

If you don’t have one already, you will need to create a will and in it, you will clearly stipulate who will be left to care for your children.

Also, know you cannot just pick someone unilaterally. You have to discuss this role with the person or persons you are thinking about and make sure they are not only informed but are ready and prepared for the consequences of guardianship.

Also, with both parties on board, before you officially name the guardian(s) you can raise and resolve concerns early on which will ensure that you have peace of mind that your chosen legal guardian will look after your child in the way you intended.

Choose your children’s guardian very carefully

Also, unlike a Godparent who you pick because that person may just be that good friend who gives you the most expensive gift at the baby shower, a guardian should be someone you have a good feeling will be around in the next ten years.

Relationships wax and wane. People grow up and grow apart, move away and speak less over the years. It would be very awkward to have your child be sent to live with someone thousands of miles away who you haven’t spoken to in several years before an untimely death or  you become incapacitated and incapable of caring for your kids.

Name the Guardian on Your Will

If you do not specifically name your child or children’s guardian or guardians on the will, a master or trustee appointed by the courts will pick for you. Often times, that would be the closest living relative. Mind you, a lot of our closest living relative would be horrible at raising children. You really don’t want a stranger making that decision.

Consider though, that even if you are divorced or separated from your children’s other parent, that parent’s rights will supercede whoever you pick in  your will. The biological parent will become the legal guradian.

What to Consider When Picking a Guardian

When choosing a potential legal guardian for your child, pick someone who:

  • Has a cultural background and family values similar to yours’
  • Your child knows and is comfortable with, especially if the guardian also has children;
  • Lives in the same neighborhood, ensuring continuity of schooling;
  • Keeps regular contact with you and your children; and
  • Is relatively stable financially.

You don’t have to pick the most financially stable person among  your family and friends because ideally, your will (and or life insurance policy) should make provision for the financial care of your children in the event of you not being around to take care of them.

It really is not fair to expect the guardian to carry this burden. The easiest and most affordable option is to take out a life policy for your child too. An education policy is also a good option. The guardian will be legally obligated to take care of your child only until the age of 18 .

Get a Financial Adviser to Draw Up a Plan 

The guardian can be given access to some cash to use for day-to-day expenses, but ideally, the trustee in charge of this cash should not be the same person as the guardian to make sure there is impartiality and neutrality in the decision-making and to make sure the best interest of the child is taken into account,

Use the services of a trusted financial adviser to draw up an appropriate financial plan which includes provision for minor children

Review the Guardian Role Every Other Year and Adjust if necessary

While you pick a godparent for life, your choice of legal guardian should be reviewed on a regular basis.

People’s personal circumstances change and the candidate you selected at the birth of your child may no longer be an appropriate choice 10 years later.

 

Tristan Thompson’s Other Child, Son Prince Featured For First Time In Mom Jordan Craig’s Lifestyle Blog

NBA star Tristan Thompson’s other child Prince Thompson is now actively starring in his mom Jordan Craig‘s Instagram and fashion and lifestyle brand after a year of being obscured by mom.

In a recent post, the Fashion Instagram and Lifestyle blogger shared a photo of herself and her son in equestrian gear as she helped the 1 1/2 year old mount a riding horse. Mom plugged a “mommy and meblog post she wrote on her All Eyes on Jordy C blog. It was a tender letter to her son.

“Dear Little P, There aren’t many things that excite me these days, the way that watching you grow does,” she wrote. “Watching you grow and do things for the first time is such an addicting, fulfilling feeling! Whether it’s traveling the world with mommy or equestrian riding for the first time at just 1 year old…your expressions and excitement are always priceless. On this day you rode your first horse (3 to be exact) at Le Chateau in North Carolina. At first, you were very skeptical about these big creatures but of course in no time you warmed up to them and couldn’t get enough!!”

The post continued: “I can’t wait until you are old enough to see all of your photos and watch all of the footage Mommy is constantly documenting of your every move. LOL! You are such a smart and well rounded little gentleman! I can’t wait for you to experience your next adventure!!!”

The post included other photos and marked only the second time she had shown her child’s face, a practice common among high profile individuals who aim to shield their children from the public eye. He had been featured before on her sites but not his face.

TMZ has previously reported insiders who said that Craig was upset when Thompson and his then girlfriend Khloe Kardashian started sharing photos of Prince that included his face on social media despite what she said she thought was an agreement to not do so. The first photo was an unveiling of an amazing playhouse fit for the son of a rich NBA star! ha! Very nice!

Lilly Ghalichi Mir Answers Fans in Cute Pregnancy Q & A (VIDEO)

Shahs of Sunset alum Lilly Ghalichi took to Instagram and YouTube to answer some of her fans and followers’ questions about her pregnancy. It was refreshing to me reviewing it to see that the ordinarily extremely svelte attorney was interested in maintaining the curves she’d grow after pregnancy.

Also, her husband told her to embrace the weight gain and pregnancy symptoms because it is a blessing to be a host to a baby.

She also shared her maternity style which really just consists of wearing tube dressed, specifically the  Wolford Fatal Dress in all the colors: red, black and white.

Also, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Khloe Kardashian sent her a pair of her company Good American’s Maternity Jeans

Finally, on the suggestion of her health practitioner, she fought leg fatigue by wearing Jobst Compression Shocks.

It was also refreshing that she told her audience that there really isn’t any way to avoid getting stretch marks because it is genetic. And she is right, the marks appear sometime in the trimester, or even after.

While you cannot avoid the marks, you could do something to slow down their appearance or make them less visible and for the eyelash entrepreneur relies on Bio Oil that she slathers all over her tummy and everywhere gaining weight and or Tee Tree Oil for hair breakage.

To combat acne and other pregnancy-related face breakouts, Ghalichi turns to Murad Clarifying Mask.

As to the things she avoids, all the things he docs told her: She doesn’t drink alcohol or use nail polish unless it is toxic-free pregnancy-friendly polish. She avoids caffeine and cut out sushi, ignoring friends who said they took the risk and ate sushi but as a first time mom-to-be, Ghalichi says she wasn’t taking the risk.

Cravings was Popsicles and carbs thus her 1 pound per week pregnancy weight gain. At 20 weeks, she has gained 20 pounds and says she is comfortable gaining 40 more because she wants her body to do what it wants and to be the best for her baby girl.

Yes! Very refreshing. She is an ideal mom-to-be, who investigates, research and heeds to all the rules! Bravo!

Check out her maternity style on her archived Insta Story HeRE!
