American Idol

TV Host & Idol Alum Kimberly Caldwell is expecting her first child

 

Aww man! I was a loyal American Idol fan, especially in the early years and I was a fan of the two Kimberlies, two top ten finalists both named Kimberly (Caldwell and Locke), in Season Two of the popular television singing talent show.
As our social media specialist Chelsea Social reported on our Facebook page this week, one of those Kimberlies, Kimberly Caldwell, is expecting her first child with her professional soccer player husband Jordan C. Harvey.
The newlyweds since December already have a name for their impending arrival, a girl, Harlowe Monroe.  *gush*
How Beautiful! That’s going to be a gorgeous baby!
Since Idol, Caldwell released an album and works regularly as an actress and television host on network and cable channel programs, most recently, the TV Guide Network. She also designs handbags and headbands and has a beauty makeover business.

Caldwell, who resides in Vancouver, Canada with her hubby who plays for the Vancouver White Caps  shared a gorgeous bump photo when she was 16 weeks along on her Instagram page.

As avid soccer lovers and shower singers here at the Bellyitch offices, we look forward to hearing more about Harlow once she arrives.

Surrogate Dad and former American Idol finalist Clay Aiken one step closer to being a Congressman

Celebrity surrogate dad and former American Idol finalist Clay Aiken may be moving from Hollywood to DC soon if he wins a seat on the US House of Representatives representing the 2nd congressional district in North Carolina.
At the close of the polls last night, Aiken was in the lead to top the Democratic primary slot and if wins, would go on to campaign against the Republican incumbent. His margin of lead ahead of the former state Commerce secretary Keith Crisco was less than 400 votes out of about 28,000 cast. 
A couple of years ago, Aiken, who is openly gay, agreed to father a child for a friend Jaymes Foster via traditional means of insemination. He came forward with the story and was featured on the covers of weeklies with his new baby and is reportedly still friends with the mom and in his child’s life for support.

Jennifer Hudson joins the Bellyitch Posh Mom Style Icon List

It has been over a year since we acknowledged a fashion-forward celebrity mom worthy to receive our elusive Posh Mom Style Icon designation. The last mominista recognized with the honor, which identifies the few who are effortlessly stylish with or without the help of a celebrity stylist, was pop songstress P!nk in 2012. Before her, First Lady Michelle Obama was dubbed an icon in 2011. Other designees include, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Ripa, Victoria BeckhamTichina Arnold and  Christina Milian.
Our newest inductee on the list is an alum finalist of the American Idol TV singing competition  and recently severed ties with Weight Watchers,  a company for which she served as a spokesperson over the course of her 80+ pound weight loss after giving birth to her son David Otunga, Jr. in August 2009. Since then, Hudson has become a fashion muse for many a designers and has been seen in couture and custom pieces by Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Balmain,  Michael KorsChristian Dior and others as well as some imprints and up and coming design houses. 
The singer and Academy Award winner has one of the best stylist  team around because they do a wonderful job of outfitting Hudson in clothes to flatter her curvy shape and her relatively tall stature makes it so that she always has clean lines and looks very polished. She experiments with color often and also does patterns and geometric shapes along with various textures. She has a versatile style aesthetic and can wear almost anything.
The Think Like a Man singer has also become a regular fixture on magazine covers and has been one of the few to land a coveted Vogue cover. 
Recently, the Dream Girls and Winnie biopic actress trimmed her locs and forewent wearing wigs and extensions and has been able to carry off the chic look well and show off her elongated neck line well. It was an A+ move. As we all know, not everyone can get away with short hair.
The multi-award nominated and winning artist balances a music and acting career, several charities, spokesperson duties and touring all while caring for her son and being a partner to long-time fiance David Otunga, and supporting her family still recuperating from a devastating loss of Hudson’s mom, nephew and brother a few years back. 
The Spotlight  singer  is currently working on her third studio album “It’s Your World” to be released in the coming year.
But she handles it all with style and grace and for this reason, we have selected her to join our other elite and limited listing of celebrity posh mom style icons. 
Congrats, Jennifer!
Jennifer takes fashion risks with geometric patterns and prints

Jennifer isn’t afraid of going bold with color.

But Jennifer  can rock exquisitely when she wants to as well.
Jennifer is Queen of the pencil skirt or dress which is one of the most flattering for her curvaceous yet still svelte figure.
Polka dots, plaid, leopard prints? Jennifer is fearless in donning it all and mixing it up with a splash of color or bangs.

Jennifer also looks elegant in floor-length and full ball gowns.

Not everyone will show off their legs, but Jennifer goes bold in a mini skirt or dress often.

And her performance gear is on point as well!

Werk, mama!
