The 2019 Golden Globes Awards Red Carpet Trends

I was cheering on a lot of the celeb moms I’ve featured on this blog during tonight’s airing of the Golden Globes Awards!

Congrats to Regina King for her win for her supporting actress role in the film If Beale Street Could TalkThe 227, Boyz In the Hood and American Crime alum used her time giving her acceptance speech to advocate for the Time’s Up x2 movement and challenged herself to make her projects fully gender equal in the future.

“In the next two years, and it’s going to be hard, I’m making a vow that every thing I produce…[will be] 50% women,” King said. “And I challenge everyone out there who is in a position of power, in all industries, I challenge you to challenge yourself and stand with us in solidarity and do the same.”

Bravo! I love this woman! <3

12 Times Celebrity Moms Posed ‘Glam Squad While Momming’ Photos in Social Media


Alas, it looks like it now officially a must-do trendy thing for working moms in Hollywood to do: Pose for the official “momming while being serviced by a glam squad” photo.

And…look, Avatar 2 star Zoe Saldana is the latest to join the club!


The Guardians of the Galaxy actress posted a photo on her Instagram account of her tending to her infant son, Zen, while getting primped and polished for some red carpet event, perhaps.  “You do what you have to do to be there….  #workingmom” she captioned the photo in both English and her native Spanish.

Before Saldana did it, the likes of Audra McDonald, Molly Sims, Miranda Kerr, P!nk, Terri Seymour, Ali Landry, Alyssa Milano, and Jessie James Decker have all share social media photos of themselves in the throws of dolling up as a working mom in Hollywood.

Gisele Bundchen may have been the unofficial mother  of this genre of photos. When she did it in 2013, the Victoria Secret model she caught a lot of flak for those who said she was being vain and using motherhood to call attention to herself — not just her then-one-year old daughter Vivian Lake.


The Brazilian Supermodel’s famous breastfeeding while getting glam shot was controversial because vanity and “glamity” aren’t supposed to co-exist with motherhood and breastfeeding, socially. Aaaah humbug!

Shameless actress Emily Rossum joined in the fun of criticizing Bundchen by posting a parody of Bundchen’s photos by copying it to a tee using a doll. Okay, Emily. Sure.


But we are able to recognized the value to the image despite what the critics say. In the past, in tinsel town  (and Bollywood) getting pregnant and having a family can disrupt a woman’s career but not so much anymore.

As we’ve shared before, motherhood isn’t halting opportunities and production can and do work around a star’s pregnancy. In recent years, many celebrity parents are showing their social media fans that they don’t let motherhood interfere with their work either. They can do both.

Again, since Bundchen’s photo, other celebrity women like LilyAldridge, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kandi Burruss have shared photos of themselves tending to their babies while getting glammed up for an event.

TV Personality Tami Roman is Pregnant at 45 Without Using fertility treatment

attends the premiere party for the third season of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars hosted by WE tv at HYDE Sunset: Kitchen + Cocktails on May 28, 2015 in West Hollywood, California.

VH1 Basketball Wives star Tami Roman announced last week during the airing of the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta: The Afterparty episode that at 45-years old, she is 6 weeks pregnant with the baby of her beau,  28-year old Houston trucking company owner Reggie Youngblood.

In an exclusive with Necole Bitchie,  Roman explained why she essentially gave in to her boyfriend’s desire to have a child on his own.

It was not long ago, during an episode of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars when the mom to two adult children shared that she was not interested in having more kids and Youngblood said he wouldn’t be cool with adopting but rather “needed” a child of his own.

“I am in a committed relationship with a younger man who has never had children. In an effort to compromise for the benefit of our relationship, and because I am in love with this person, I decided to have a child with him and I am happy I made the decision to do so,” the actress who starred in the short-lived TV show Extant alongside Halle Berry said. “Marriage Bootcamp helped us a great deal in all aspects, especially communication. It showed us that we do love each other and are in it for the long haul.”

Some in social media have criticized her for choosing to have a baby so late in life, but Roman questions all the “hating” on her decision and points to other celebrities who successfully had children later in life without similar public admonishment.

“As it pertains to Halle, I looked at her as inspiration and said she did it, Alyssa Milano did it, Gwen Stefani did it, Julianna Margolis did it… Why not me?” the Real World: Los Angeles alum questioned. “People put more emphasis on my age when this is not new, other women have done it and received nothing but congratulations, [so] not sure why my announcement was viewed so negatively.”

Roman is mom to two very beautiful daughters 18-year old Jazz and 20-year old Lyric with NBA player Kenny Anderson. 

She confesses that says didn’t struggle to conceive and did not receive any fertility treatment, neither froze her eggs. She said she was surprised it happened given the fact she was pre-menopausal at the time.

“It was the grace of God,” Roman credits for being able to conceive without medical intervention.

The reveal last week came surprisingly early in her pregnancy, at just 6 weeks along, but says she hopes she doesn’t “jinx herself”.

We at Bellyitch pray and hope she does in fact have a complete healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery. As Roman said in her Necole Bitchie feature, “babies are blessings.”

The former model is also currently designing her own cosmetic line and will star in a new sitcom called The Assist co-executive produced by celebrity blogger Karen Civil  and Ernest Dukes, while appearing occasionally on the next season of Basketball Wives: LA.

She told Necole Bitchie she won’t be appearing on the next season of the original Basketball Wives which is based around the lives of wives in Miami, Florida.


Heathrow Airport screeners threw away Alyssa Milano’s breast milk

All  actress Alyssa Milano wanted to do with carry the “liquid gold” espressed breastmilk with her on the plane on the way to a romantic getaway with her husband today.
But the Mistresses  alum, who gave birth to her second child, daughter Isabella last September 2014,  was made to dump the milk when she traveled through Heathrow airport in London.
The airport only allows those traveling with  their infant or baby to take more than 100 millileters of breast milk aboard a flight. Because the former child star of  Who’s the Boss did not have her baby in tow, the airport officials threw the precious milk away.
She took to Twitter to complain.

We feel your pain! Ugh!

Fashion shows’ pregnant celebrity hosts

A few years ago, we blogged about how female film stars were losing out on film projects once producers discovered they were pregnant. That’s why it was refreshing to catch a broadcast of Project Runway’s All-Star featuring a very pregnant Alyssa Milano as a host on the latest season of that show. She hosted it last year as well.
The franchise is quite pregnant lady friendly as creator and original host Heidi Klum was also very pregnant during one past season of the general Project Runway fashion designer contest show.
We also noticed that another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Vanessa Simmons started her gig on Project Runway Threads (the version for child-designers) right after giving birth to her daughter Ava Marie
 last February. 
It must be a thing with fashion shows because Kristin Cavallari starred in season one of the E!  show The Fabulist while she was expecting her second child. 
It’s all good news for the future of working pregnant moms in the industry. Well at least on the small screen.

Well, not really but it did today add the words “Selfie” and “Baby Bump” which is represented in the Mistresses star’s recent Instagram photo with the caption that included “hashtags” (“#shortpeoplecarrybig #noitsnottwins.”) among the 150 new words.  
It defines:

Baby Bump: the enlarged abdomen of a pregnant woman

Selfie: an image of oneself taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks
Hashtag: a word or phrase preceded by the symbol # that classifies or categorizes the accompanying text [such as a tweet]
Other fun, social media and tech words added and defined indlude:

Cool. Now if only it can add “mansplaining” the circle would be complete.
