Why some celebrities seem to have longer than average length pregnancies

I spotted this question in the headline of a recent blog article querying the due date of the former American Idol champ & award-winning singer, Kelly Clarkson. 


It is a common question or related comment many state in the comment section of stories about the singer’s pregnancy. 
She is but the latest in a series of celebrity moms-to -be who are thought to have had very longer than usual pregnancies. 
Some just seem to be “pregnant forever!”
In my memory, I recall people thinking  Alicia Keys, P!nk, Amber Rose and a few others had excessively long pregnancies. Others, seemingingly pop out a kid the week after you learn they’re preggers. 
What’s the deal? 
It has to do with a few factors: 
1. releasing the news early. If a celebrity shares news of her pregnancy in the early second trimester, or like Kourtney Kardashian did in her second pregnancy in the first 12-weeks, then the public has 6 months of seeing plenty bump watch images and articles about the celeb. 
2. popularity of the celeb. Some  celebs are more popular than others and/or are stalked more by paparazzi. Each day and photo means another article about the spotting to be published in one of several gossip sites. 
3. heavy event season. Some celebs wind up knocked up while promoting a new project or during Tv upfronts or award season. Therefore, in addition to paparazzi pics in the rags, you’re seeing them in mainstream publications too. It can be overkill.  
All of that makes it so every time you look up on your Computer screen over the course of 24 weeks make it appear like a very long long pregnancy. 
There you go! It’s still just 40 weeks but we know exactly what you mean! 

2014 Grammy Red Carpet, On Stage & Behind-the-Scenes (PHOTOS)

Last night, the biggest names in music hit the red carpet to the Staples Center in Los Angeles,California on January 26 for the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards and celebration. We took to Grammy’s mobile app to live Instagram and share some of the Red Carpet, On Stage and Behind-the-Scenes imagery and photos of the night, starring many of the moms current and past that we’ve “bumpwatched.” We start with Alicia Keys who looked stunning in an electric blue plunging Armani Prive dress with hubby Swizz Beatz.
Beyonce won the night in this lace curve-hugging Michael Costello fish tail dress with  Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin heels. 

Another relatively new mom, Amber Rose, looked amaze in a gorge gold Naeem Khan floor length curve-hugging dress.

 Another one of our pretty new  moms Anna Faris looked amazing in this midnight blue Fitranni dress with a slight train.

Ciara rocked her bump in a shimmery bronze floor-length Emilio Pucci gown. 

Giuliana Rancic made the BEST dressed list with this crimson lace overlay Alex Perry resort 2014 dress and Marina B jewls. Gorg!

Tamar Braxton-Herbert just had her son last year and looks smoking hot in a fire-engine red Michael Costello dress while posing with hubby Vince Herbert.

P!nk accompanied hubby Carey Hart while showing off her toned bod in a red Johanna Johnson dress.

Sweet. Erica Campbell of the group Mary Mary had her daughter for her date last night while wearing a two piece lace top and skirt. It was a modest and approporiate look considering all the hoopla over her solo album cover. 

Madonna and son David did the 20s zoot suit styling by Ralph Lauren



Fantasia Barino
went with a neutral-toned slip dress with a red halter strap under a black lace see-through dress with crimson lip and a cute bowl pixie cut. Confusing look. 

Also rocking her new pixie cut was Jennifer Hudson, who didn’t go to the Grammys but was spotted on the red carpet to Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party that occurs the night before the Grammys at the famed Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills. Jennifer Hudson wore a  colorful Christopher Kane dress.

At that same event was actress Paula Patton in a crimson Mireille Dagher Couture fall 2014 lace mini dress with a plunging neckline, worn with Louboutin pumps and David Yurman jewels.

Pink’s aerial performance has become an anticipated breath of fresh air for award shows. She’s done it a few times before and stuns audiences each time. 

Look at that strength and balance. Amazing. 

The night opened with a saucy solo and duet by Beyonce and Jay Z performing Bey’s song Drunk In Love off her latest self-titled 5th solo studio album. The outfit was by Nichole de Carle which was accented with Saint Laurent tights,  Stuart Weitzman Mary Jane dance shoes, a La Perla Collar, and custom bra, and Jennifer Fisher jewelry Jay wore a Tom Ford  tux.
  Academy-Award nominee Julia Roberts was a presenter. 

Producer of the Year Grammy winner Pharrell Williams was the talk of the show with his interesting forest ranger hat, seen here cutting up with Jay and Bey backstage.

And again with another pop star royal couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz.

Chasing The Duggars: The Bates from ‘Bringing up Bates’ are expecting the 20th child in the family

So the other TV family with 19 kids also has a family member expecting a baby. 
This January 1, The Bates family, consisting of dad Gil, mom Kelly Jo and their 19 children, ages 2 to 25, got their own reality TV show on UPTV after appearing on several episodes of TLC‘s 19 and Counting.


The show, Bringing Up Bates, premiered this January 1 and featured a storyline where the oldest daughter Erin, and her husband, Chad Paine, discovered that they miscarried their first child. However, since that airing, the couple has gong on to conceive again.
Erin shared a sonogram of her baby on her Instagram account this weekend.  She wrote:

I’m so glad and relieved that last night’s episode has finally aired! Chad and I have been waiting to share our big news with the rest of the world for quite some time now. The news is true! Chad and I are having a baby! To say that we are thrilled would be such an understatement. 😉 We can hardly contain our excitement as we prepare to be parents. As many of you know, starting a family.

As we reported before, over at The Duggars household, their eldest daughter Jill announced last October that she and her husband Derrick Dillard are expecting their first child. This will be the 4th of 5 grandchildren in the family because Josh Duggar and his wife Anna have 3 kids and announced this past December that they are expecting their fourth child. Jessa Duggar just got engaged to her beau Ben Seewald last August.  
It looks in the production of children competition, the Duggars are pulling ahead! ha!
