BumpWatch: Eva Marcille, Kendra Baskett and Kristin Cavallari Instagram shares

Want to know what’s up with some of the preggers celeb ladies we’re following? 

You can find the answer in their social media accounts, in particular, Instagram. They’re great about updating their lives on these great new mediums that allow celebs to directly share and interact with their fans, followers and the media.

There we spotted a bare belly photo of America’s Top Model’s Eva Marcille that her beau Kevin McCall shared on his page. The model and actress is expecting the couple’s first child any day now, he wrote.
Meanwhile, reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson Baskett was hanging out with some pretty tall friends lately who towered the petite mom-to-be expecting her second kid with hubby, former NFL player Hank Baskett. The couple are parents to 4-year old Hank Jr. 


Finally, The Hills alum and shoe designer Kristin Cavallari just finished shooting the cover photo for the April/May edition of Fit Magazine,  she disclosed in a caption to this photo above.  
The day before, she was showing off her pregnant fit form in a selfie she took at the gym. Cavallari and her husband Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler are expecting their second kid. They are parents to 1-year old Camden.
Instagram overshare rocks! Who needs a publicist?

Eva Marcille’s Girls Weekend in Caribbean: THIS is how to Maximize a large Instagram Following

America’s Next Top Model  Cycle 3 winner and actress Eva Marcille has shown how to use Instagram to market an event.  The mom-to-be and TV hostess offered some of the young women among her nearly half a million people who follow her on Instagram and nearly quarter million on Twitter a chance to hang out with her in the Caribbean this May.
We suppose this will be a post baby trip as the former reality TV star and her beau music producer Kevin McCall are expecting their daughter pretty soon. 
Starcast

It took less than 3 days for the 20 spots to fill up in each of the countries/properties on her tour: Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, Cayman Islands, Barbados and Anguilla. For packages starting at $800, the All Girls Caribbean Weekend includes hanging with Eva, professional photo shoots, make overs, fashion and beauty tips, relationship talks and more.  Those who pay the $2,000 each for the 5 Platinum spots on each stop get a shoot with Eva and their photos published in a non-specified magazine. 

That’s not a bad deal if you can afford it and have the time off from work and/or flexibility. And it is also for social good as a portion of the proceeds from the weekends will go to a group called The Right to Rights Foundation, which appears to promote awareness of Human Rights abuse and violations.
And who knows, if she gets consent from participants, she could partner with a production company to  film parts of the adventure to sell as a short-run docu series to a cable network. 
NBCUniversal
She previously starred with her girlfriends in the 2012 Oxygen channel reality TV show she produced called Girlfriend Confidential: LA   which got a pretty good review as a mostly positive show about the importance of strong female friendships from Common Sense Media.  It didn’t get picked up for a second season, meanwhile BadGirls Club is on Season 17. (hmmm. Marinate on that for a bit)
Anywhoo….each day, we see in Instagram and social media, fashion bloggers wearing clothes provided to them by brands who pay the most popular ones upwards to thousands of dollars in promotional funds to do so.  It’s great to see these partnerships between influentials and companies take off. 
Some people just love social media for its ability to connect with friends, old and new. Others for just clowning around, sharing, news links and memes and getting a distraction from their daily day and life. 
And then there are others who use it fully to maximize entrepreneurial and brand promotional opportunities.
Kudos to Eva for using her celeb status and ample following to connect with her fans and followers.

Inside Kenya Moore Daly’s ‘Wrinke In Time’-Themed Baby Shower

Last weekend, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Kenya Moore and her husband Marc Daly celebrated the impending birth of their first child together at a  Wrinkle In Time -theme baby shower in Atlanta where guests were asked to dressed in elaborate costumes to reflect the theme similar to the Met Gala.

The seated plated event was held at the Historic Academy of Medicine building at George Tech University, a venue used often for lavish banquets, weddings and other formal events.

It was held in an intimate sized ornately decorated room, draped in lighted organza, green carpet, golden thrones and everything needed to resemble an enchanted forest.

Guests of the October 20th event included family, friends and former castmates Porsha Williams, Kandi Burrus, Cynthia Bailey, and Claudia Jordan along with “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Gizelle Bryant, Married to Medicine stars Toya Bush-Harris and Dr. Heavenly Kimes among others.

When the time was right, Moore Daly entered the red-carpet event after emerging from a luxury black SUV and joined her already gathered guests to an awaiting head table that included her aunt, hubby and several relatives.

At one point, Moore Daly and Williams and Morton talked about not being able to breathe while preggers. Cute.

The Dalys took a spin off of a very popular theme among celebs: Royal. It is one previously in the past including, Lil Kim, Jojo Simmons, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend,  Creed frontman Scott Stapp and his wife Jaclyn, and even Moore Daly’s  former co-star Eva Marcille earlier this month in March.

Guests took home custom a box of favors featuring personalized chocolate bars, Tic Tacs, wine and sanitation wipes.

Expecting Celebs Are Rocking Braids Protective Hair Style

I’ve long believed that braided hairstyles are the best style to wear for your last trimester of pregnancy leading up to labor and delivery and shortly thereafter.

Why? The style requires very little maintenance after installed and can be kept in for a longer while. Once a silk head wrap is worn at night, the style remains neat without having to be loosened, washed and re-braided daily.

That’s great when you’re too busy nesting, adjusting to the aches and pains of preparing for birth and thereafter when your time is consumed with caring for your newborn.

Several of the celeb women we follow who are currently pregnant have been wearing braided protective style of late: Tia Mowry and Toya Wright are going with cornrows and Eva Marcille is rocking faux locs.

Its been a while but the locs are coming back!!! Gotta love protective styles??

#PhilandoCastile and #AltonSterling: Celeb Moms Who’ve Spoken Out About Killings

candles

Tonight, we’ve reached a tipping point in America as several Dallas police officers were killed during a rally to protest recent police shootings. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those men and women who put their lives at risk daily to protect and serve.

Here is a rundown of what sparked the rally followed by solidarity messages from celeb women we’ve featured on the blog:

Within 48 hours, two black men in “concealed weapon license to carry” states exercising their rights to have guns in their pockets were nonetheless shot and killed by police officers. Both killings, one execution style and the other in front of a 4-year old child during a routine traffic stop, has sparked outrage.

Alton Sterling was selling CDs outside of a grocery store in a high crime neighborhood and exercising his Second Amendment rights as an American, carried a weapon to protect himself. Someone reported to the police that Sterling had it out waving at people and after scuffle with the officers who arrived at the scene and eventually took Sterling down, another took out his revolver and emptied a couple of rounds into Sterling’s body before falling off the man’s chest and shooting a few more shots. The store owner and another eyewitness filmed the shootings on their smartphones and circulated it on social media. The outrage has been swift.

That same night, another man, Philando Castile, was driving with his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and her 4-year old daughter in the backseat when he was pulled over for a busted tail light. Diamond turned on her Facebook Live and shared the incident as it happened with her followers on the social media site. The world was witness to the moments immediately after one officer shot him as he reached into his pocket to pull out his driver’s license as asked to do so by the officer, per Reynold’s account. The officer can be overheard on the video saying “ignorance”.

As with other past police killings of unarmed black men and boys, many parents have been shaken by the incident especially parents of young black boys. In social media, many have expressed fear that when their children grow up, they will be seen as menacing threats simply for being in the skin they were born in and could be the next hashtag.

I know personally, I’ve talked to my kids again as my husband and I do periodically throughout their lives to make sure they are aware what they need to do to escape a possible police encounter alive. My father in law is a retired veteran police detective and my husband’s uncle was a police officer. We fear for the lives of blue and believe Blue Lives Matter as well, but at the same time, we are frightened by the pattern of brutality among some officers.

There were tons of Celeb Baby Bumps at BET’s ‘About the Business’ Premiere

about the business

Last week, the Black Entertainment Television (BET) network launched a new reality TV (docuseries) about a tight-knit group of women in the elite world of urban Hollywood at a party in tinsel town.  The show is called About the Business and it stars a Bellyitch alum Eva Marcille and current mom-to-be Crystal Renay (real name Crystal Williams), who recently tied the knot with her R&B beau Ne-Yo (real name: Shaffer Chimere Smith)

The show features the women getting on their daily grind by day and by night balancing career family and their African American celebrity circles, a release from the network states.  Two other reality TV moms-to-be attended: Draya Michele of VH1‘s  Love and Basketball and  Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood castmember Masika Kalysha

It looked like it was a bump-filled event!  Nick Cannon and Ne-Yo will cameo on the show.

 

 

30 Celebrity Moms We’ve Profiled Who Have Since Split with their Kid’s Dad

30 celebs2

Breakups happen! When it comes to several of the celebrity women we have ‘bump watched’ over the course of the 8 years of this blog’s existence, they’re not interested in sticking it out for the baby when the relationship heads south.

And thus, not only is BellytichBlog an institution that chronicles celebrity births, it also is a memoriam, of sorts, to relationships that once were.  A significant number of pregnancies we’ve bumpwatched from pregnancy through birth were part of unions that have since dissolved.

The most recent is Idris Elba and his make up artist Naiyana Garth who reportedly just broke up. The couple welcomed their first child together in April 2014.

And the breakups aren’t always pretty.

Just this week, songstress and model Ciara filed a $15 Million defamation lawsuit in response to comments her ex hip hop artist Future has said about her in the media, traditional and social media.

Last week, Amber Rose found herself caught in the middle of a Twitter beef between Kim Kardashian‘s husband Kanye West and her ex Wiz Khalifa. West mentioned Rose and Wiz’s son Sebastian and Rose had to go off on him, revealing some intimate deets about their sex life when they were together, obviously to embarrass him and teach him a lesson about dragging her into his social media fights.

“I wouldn’t have said anything if it was just between him and Wiz,” Rose said on theAllegedly podcast. “That’s two grown men hashing it out. That’s their business. I would have kept it cute and just minded my business, but you don’t bring in my baby. That’s so corny.”

She and Kim posted the same “usie” on their respective social media accounts to signal the truce.

Here is a list of 30 of our past featured women who have since parted ways with their respective significant other who they procreated a child with.

  1. Halle Berry
  2. Mariah Carey,
  3. Jennifer Lopez
  4. Jennifer Garner
  5. Gwen Stefani
  6. January Jones
  7. Selma Blair
  8. Sienna Miller
  9. Kate Hudson
  10. Kourtney Kardashian
  11. Heidi Klum
  12. Megan Fox
  13. Christina Milian
  14. Kelis
  15. Eva Marcille
  16.  Ciara
  17. Amber Rose
  18. Blac Chyna
  19. Garcelle Beauvais
  20. Padma Lakshmi
  21. Lauryn Hill
  22. Kimora Lee Simmons(from Djimon Hounsou)
  23. Jill Scott
  24. Hilary Duff
  25. Fantasia
  26. Jamie Lyn Spears
  27. Lauren London
  28. Monyetta Shaw
  29. Golden Brooks (from Girlfriends)
  30. Tameka Raymond

Last Summer was a big heartbreak time with the breakups of  Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn and Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Some celebs have broken up before the baby was even born: Christina Milian, Kelis, Heidi Klum and January Jones and many more split with their respective partners before they even gave birth.

Or shortly thereafter…. A couple of year ago, CiaraEva Marcille (nee Pigfordand Amber Rose split with their partners before each of  their babies turned 6 months old. A few years ago, Selma Blair and her ex Jason Bleick split up 14 months after welcoming their first child together.

No matter what happens, most children grow up in wonderfully co-parenting situations and survive and thrive!

 

Celebrity Couples whose Union Didn’t Survive Their Baby’s First Birthdays

bellyitcblog.com spli up

US Weekly reports that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have split after 11 years together.

It is the latest in a slate of high-profile celeb break ups this summer including Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Break ups are sad and we’ve notice that in the 7 years that Bellyitch Blog has been in existence, a substantial amount of celebrity women who we have had on our “bumpwatch” list have broken up with their respective significant others.

Some broke up before the baby was even born: Christina Milian, Kelis, Heidi Klum and January Jones,and many more split with their respective hubby/baby daddies before they even gave birth.

Last year, CiaraEva Marcille (nee Pigford),  and Amber Rose split with their partners before each of  their baby’s turned 6 months old. The separations have been messy, still.  A few years ago, Selma Blair and her ex Jason Bleick split up 14 months after welcoming their first child together.

Others we’ve covered who have called it quits include: The Jamie Foxx show actress Garcelle Beauvais, TV host Padma Lakshmi from Top Chef, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Freeman from My Wife and Kids, Lauryn Hill, Kimora Lee Simmons (Djimon Hounsou days), Hilary Duff, Fantasia, Halle Berry, Jill Scott, Kate Hudson, Jamie Lyn Spears, Lauren London, Monyetta Shaw (NeYo’s ex), Golden Brooks from “Girlfriends”.

At this point, it’s probably safer to start chronicling those who are still together because they are the new exception, not the rule in Hollywood, it seems. But hey, so long as everyone is happier and better off apart and the off-springs are co-parented well with little to minimum drama, right?

No judgment from us, okay. We’re  just pointing out the trends and facts. Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts! (*smirk*)
