mtv vma red carpet moms

If you’ve followed this blog for the past 10 years, you know I enjoy spotting on Red Carpets the celebrity women who’ve been spotlighted here before when they were expecting a baby.

Last night, on August 26, the MTV Video Music Awards were held in New Jersey for the first time at the Prudential Center.

One of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Cardi B won for Best Hip Hop video for her song “Money” (she was nominated for Artist of the Year too but lost to Ariana Grande). She was also nominated for Best Pop video for “Please Me” with Bruno Mars and Best Dance and Best Power Anthem for “Taki Taki” and “Wish Wish,” respectively.

One other featured mama from the past Alicia Keys was nominated for the Best R&B video for the video for her song “Raise a Man” but lost to former Fifth Harmony girl band member Normani.

The show caters to younger audiences so I have to admit I’ve had to watch the nominees right before publshing this post. Shame. lol In any event, congrats to the winners and shout out to the moms who looked fab on the red carpet including:

Adriana Lima in Sally LaPointe with Chopard jewelry and Christian Louboutin heels.

Monica in Libertine

Last night was the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York, New York City on August 20.

Quite a few of our Bellyitch  Bumpwatch alums showed up and/or showed out with draw-dropping performances, on-stage antics, on the red carpet risks and MoonMan winning!

Jennifer Lopez gave an electrifying performance of a medley of her hits over the years before accepting the Video Vanguard Award, the first person of Latino heritage to win the coveted prize.

Cardi B surprised the audience by opening the show cradling what looked like a baby on stage

Many thought they would get the first glimpse of her infant girl Kultura with husband rapper Offset, but she later revealed it was a trophy.

Womp womp womp!!

Later in the evening, the “I Like It” rapper won three of several awards she was nominated for, Song of the Summer for “I Like It featuring Bad Bunny & J Balvin; Best new artist and Best Collaboration for “Dinero” Jennifer Lopez’s song with DJ Khaled Artist of the year.

She was nominated for Best hip hop, Artist of the Year, Best Latin album, also for Dinero and Song of the Year for “Finesse” with Bruno Mars

Beyoncé’s song “APES**T” with her husband Jay Z as part of their duo The Carters won a few technical awards for Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction though that song was also nominated for Best collaboration, Best Direction, Best Choreography,  Best Hop Hop, Best Editing And Video of the Year.

On the red carpet, JLo and Cardi showed out along with other alums Kylie Jenner and Blake Lively, coming through with the pant suit again.

MTV Reality show and other Bellyitch alums Heidi Montag, Nicky Hilton, Nicole “Snooki” Palozzi and Audrina Partridge graces the red carpet also.

One fashion trend that stood out to me was the inptricate sheet organza I saw on singing sisters and Beyonce protege Chloe X Haile, comedic actress Tiffany Hadish and British singing phenom  Rita Ora.

 

And finally, winning the sex kitten awards: a chaps and chisel abs donning Teyana Taylor, Blac Chyna and red cat woman Amber Rose. 

BET Awards 2018 Recap and Blonde Ambition Red Carpet

It was blonde ambition at the 2018 BET Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California as we spied many of our Bellyitch “Bumpwatch”  alums and past featured moms rocked platinum to strawberry blonde hair on the red carpet.

Amber Rose ditched her signature buzz cut for a wavy extensions. Her BFF Blac Chyna showed up and out in blonde finger waves.

And recent mom to a baby she adopted Tyra Banks wore a blonde blunt cut bob.

(To round up the collage, added Empire starnams singer Serayah McNeill)

Cardi B would have joined in the red carpet  trend we’re sure if she wasn’t taking it easy while waiting to give birth to her first child with beau Offset of the rap group Migos.

She did walk away with two awards: besting rap rivals Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma to win Best Female Hip Hop Artist; and nabbing the Viewer’s Choice Award.

Beyonce, new  mom to infant twins, won Best Female R&B / Pop Artist Award.

Serena Williams was awarded the Sportswoman of the year.

congrats to all the winners, the nominated and performers!

The night featured spectacular stage performances by Miguel,  Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Adama, Janelle Monae and others.

Peep a few at BET here.

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Welcome Their Daughter (UPDATED)

Congratulations to Khloe Kardashian on the birth of her first child, daughter, in a hospital outside Cleveland, Ohio this morning, TMZ reports.

The Good American Apparel co-founder announced her pregnancy with NBA‘s Cleveland Cavaliers star, Tristan Thompson, just last December after much speculation.

Since then, the Revenge Body on E! host has been sharing a lot about her pregnancy experience through her personal app and website, from what’s inside her hospital bag to her pregnancy fitness and post-baby exercise routine.

The delivery comes on the heels of very public videos, suggesting that her beau since September 2016 was cheating on her with a woman in NY and a couple of other women at a hookah lounge outside DC last October. Neither Khloe, her family or Thompson have publicly addressed the reports.

Today, it was reported that the family is rallying around the youngest adult female Kardashian. (Her brother Rob Kardashian‘s daughter Dream Kardashian technically is the youngest Kardashian)

According to an insider to E! News:

the 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star went into labor on Wednesday. After her water broke, the reality star went into labor for “several hours,” per another source. She then delivered the baby at a Cleveland hospital Thursday morning. Thankfully, her mother, Kris Jenner, her sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, and her BFF, Malika Haqq, were all there for support.

“She labored with Kris all day on Wednesday,” the first insider said.

The first insider also said the baby’s father, Tristan Thompson, was there for the birth. The Cleveland Cavaliers player had a game against the New York Knicks in Ohio on Wednesday.

“He wants to spend as much time with the baby as he can,” the first insider added.

The birth came days after videos of Thompson kissing and being intimate with other women surfaced online. The second source told E! News Khloe is “distraught” over the allegations but is focusing on the baby. While the aforementioned source said Khloe wants the baby to have a relationship with the father, the insider also said she and Thompson are not on good terms. Khloe also reportedly plans to head back to Los Angeles as soon as possible and raise the child there.

The new baby will have plenty of cousins: in addition to Dream, whose mom is Blac Chyna (real name Angela Renee White), North, Saint and Chicago West (daughters and son of Kim Kardashian-West and husband Kanye West); Stormi Webster (daughter of her half-sister Kylie Jenner and her hip hop star boyfriend Travis Scott, real name Jacques Webster); and Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick (daughter and sons of Kourtney Kardashian and her ex Scott Disick)

The baby’s arrival was showered at a lavish pink baby shower earlier this year.

Congrats to Khloe and we are thinking and praying for a healthy recovery and that she overcomes this very stressful situation.

The baby also has a half-brother, Thompson’s 1-year-old son Prince from a previous relationship with Jordan Craig, who is first cousin to our other Bumpwatch alum, Eniko  Parrish Hart.

Report: Monica Brown is Expecting Her Fourth Child

Sources to notoriously accurate gossip blog  Fameolous are claiming that R&B singer Monica Brown is expecting her fourth child.

The site quoted a backstage snoop at one of “The Boy Is Mine” singer’s recent concerts who overheard Monica telling another friend that her daughter Laiyah asked her to dye her hair blue because she thinks her mom is having a baby boy.

Brown, who is married to NBA player Shannon Brown, has yet to confirm the news and is keeping the news to herself and close family until she is further along.

If it is a boy (or twins, some sources say she is expecting two), then it would be her third son. She has  a 13-year old son, Rocko and 10-year old son Romelo with her ex,  rapper Rodney ‘Rocko’ Hill.

This would be her second child with Brown, a former Cleveland Cavalier player who currently plays for the Wisconsin Herd.  In a recent photo of Monica with our more recent Bumpwatch alum, Blac Chyna, she wore a top that seemingly revealed a sizeable baby bump.  Time will tell.

Blac Chyna Wins the Award For Switching Up Her Look The Most

These days, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Blac Chyna (real name: Angela Renee White) is sporting cornrows and Braids.

But is she?

The online and reality TV personality switches up her hair more than we  can count.

We imagine most of the looks are wigs this why story can be changed from day to day.

Our fave is the recent wavy crimson hair the Rob and Chyna alum paired with black lipstick.

The biz woman is mom to 9-month old daughter Dream with ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian and 5-year old son King Cairo with ex-fiancé rapper Tyga (real name: Michae Ray l Nguyen-Stevenson.)

‘Rob and Chyna’s Baby Delivery Episode Airs Tonight, They’re NOW Trending for Other Reasons

rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-friends

Tonight, on Rob and Chyna on E!, fans and viewers of the show will get to witness the labor and delivery (up to a point) of  Chyna (real name Angela Renee White)’s baby with her fiance Rob Kardashian.

The digital entrepreneur even promoted the episode on her Instagram account today and we notice she took advantage of the new option to disable comments given all the other ongoing real life drama unfolding right now which may or may not be excellent publicity for tonight’s episode.

We will be watching for sure!

Our #RobandChyna baby special airs THIS Sunday night at 8/7c on E!! ????

A photo posted by Blac Chyna (@blacchyna) on



It is on the heels of a very tumultuous weekend that includes the hacking of her account that revealed some intimate conversations with her best friend, Jaden Smith and others.

Around the same time or following, she apparently left Rob with their 1-month old daughter Dream. The two have since blasted each other on their social media accounts, including Rob putting out some horrible Photoshop jobs which makes the skeptic in us think this is all part of a publicity stunt for tonight’s show.

Well we hope anyway. This cannot be real life.

You can see more details about the drama at The Cut. 

 

No Hate but Please Don’t Take Celebrities’ Postpartum Weightloss Tips

blac-chyna-google-search

Listen, blog readers! Please do not take postpartum weight loss advice from celebrities, okay?

I make this request for several reasons:

First, we already know that a lot of them have extensive resources that the average new mom does not have to assist in their rapid post-baby weight loss: personal chefs, dietitians, personal trainers and the like, so without similar support, it’s more of a challenge.

Second, they have more motivation to drop the weight fast because they are in the public eye and get paid to be super thin. Many celebrity women are in the film, fashion and entertainment industry and have to quickly shed weight in order to prepare for a role, get cast gigs or launch a musical tour or they have a shoot they need to slim down for…

The average person should not rush to shed weight but should focus on baby, doing what’s right for their body, getting as much rest as possible, eating nourishing meals if they are breastfeeding and exercise no sooner than two weeks postpartum if they’ve had a vaginal birth or 6 to 8 weeks for C-Section.

Third, following a celebrity’s weight loss advice could be dangerous. There is a great urge to get one’s body back but at what cost?

And certainly, do not drink or digest anything either.

This week, for example, reality TV star Angela “Blac Chyna” White,  revealed a flat’ish tummy on Instagram and credited detox teas after some of her followers accused her of having post-pregnancy weight loss surgery.

Homegirl was spotted out and about by paparazzi and on her social media shares sporting a pretty tiny midsection just days after giving birth to her daughter Dream.

“The only reason it got that flat, you guys, is from breastfeeding and breast pumping and from my body already being small before my pregnancy,” she captioned a photo in social media. “Not surgery guys.”

 

Chyna, who is famously engaged to Rob Kardashian, said she is drinking Skinny Tea as a supplement.

“Post Baby Body already snapping back quickly,” she said in another IG photo. “Before I head out I’m drinking @teamiblends Skinny tea, in my purple tumbler,” she continued. “This tea gives me great energy plus it’s perfectly safe while breastfeeding Dream!”

Um… really? When we went to the website to confirm if this was true, a notice on the company’s FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) page read:

If you are currently breastfeeding we suggest that you take a list of our ingredients (on our website) to your doctor and verify that you, or your baby, are not allergic to any of the plants or herbs. Our products are all-natural and chemical-free – but we always want to make sure that it is okay for your baby!

We do not recommend the Teami Colon while you are breastfeeding due to the gentle laxative effect that can occur. This is not recommended from breastfeeding moms due to the possibility of transferring particles over to the infant.

So…no, drinking diet tea is not necessarily the best while breastfeeding. You have to consult your doctor first! The endorsement seems to be a paid ad so there is no true certainty that she is indeed even really drinking that stuff.

No shade, and I love Chyna, but my priority to my readers is safe pregnancy and post-partum experience. I am not a doctor but I am mom to three children and I have been blogging about pregnancy for over 9 years now.

Please, people, take care of your self and body first before focusing on weight loss. Thanks!
