The Realhousewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille celebrated the impending arrival of her third child with an intimate Flower themed garden baby shower over the weekend.
Her BRAVO TV co stars Cynthia Bailey, Nene Leakes, Porsha Williams, and friends of the housewives Shamea Morton and Marlo Hampton, along with Cynthia’s sister and occassional guest on the show Mal Bailey, all joined in the fun to celebrate Baby Maverick, the chosen name Marcille and her husband, attorney Michael Sterling, have selected for their second child together.
“Pardon me I must say initially I was not super excited about having a baby shower considering this is my third child,” Marcille captioned a stunning Instagram photo of herself o the big day. “However, waking up this morning I’m super excited and it is my joy to celebrate the welcoming of my newest Flower Child ‘Baby Maverick.’ The Sterling clan gets a little bit bigger.”
Her co-stars and other guests also posted pics of the event.
Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, Kenya Moore Daly continues to be dogged with and by rumors that she is faking her pregnancy and it seems no matter how many bare bump photos or pics of her cast mates cradling her belly she posts, there are always people in her comments expressing disbelief that the 47-year old former Miss USA is really expecting her first child.
Even recently, when she posted a cute Instagram photo of her hubby restauranteur Marc Daly feeling her baby kicks, she still had haters decrying the authenticity of the moment. Ugh!
She was all smiles in the photo captioned, “#marcdaly wasn’t ready for #babydaly’s kicks today ?❤️#babybump#babykicks #ThatsMrsDalyToYou.”
It is amazing to me. She is not the only one. Beyonce and Danielle Jonas both were trolled all Pregnancy and beyond when they each had their first kid.
Kim Kardashian was too and was BravoTV‘s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills former cast member Adrienne Maloof but way after the fact.
One season of the hit series focused on a rumor that Maloof had used a surrogate to birth her children so as not to “ruin” her body, but lied about actually being pregnant and going through labor and delivery to save face and not come off as being a superficial and vain person.
Meanwhile, who aren’t accused of faking their pregnancy?
Celeb women who barely look pregnant even at 5-months along like Remy Ma or who undergo an entire 40 weeks pregnant undetected and just crop up with a set of twins like Anna Kournikiva did!
It is quite interesting to me who gets the suspect treatment and who escapes it.
Former Miss USA may not have be a Real Housewives of Atlanta housewife next season, but she is still good pals with several of her co-stars who have snapped pics with the mom-to-be during her pregnancy.,
“ow! My girl @thekenyamoore is just glowing today?#babydaly #auntiecynt,“the former model and agency boss captioned a photo of herself cradling Moore’s growing bump.”
Moore and Daly are expecting their first child together. The 47-year old announced the news during the reunion show and is due this winter.
Since then, she has been plagued with verbal assaults by online followers who have consistently accused the star of faking her bump.
I watched Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore when she was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week. When host Cohen, the head of programming at the popular network, asked her if she was pregnant and she said something to the effect to, “I can’t say.” I took that to mean perhaps yes.
Moore recently sat down on the Wendy Williams Show where she addressed the pregnancy rumors by saying: “We have been very upfront about wanting to have kids together. I am not saying either way [if I am pregnant or trying] when I am able to say; I will be happy to tell the world.”
This week, the newlywed reality TV mainstay shared a photo which her fans believe reveal a pregnancy glow. Check it out:
What say you? I think I see one !
Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kenya Moore has talked about having a baby for several seasons on her hit BravoTV reality TV show and even went as far as froze some of her eggs and secured sperm from a bank. Now that she is seriously dating fitness trainer Matt Jordan, she’s amped up speculation that she actually is preggers.
Some gossip blogs have pointed out that she looks as if she has gained some weight and is not wearing figure hugging clothing as before. Last February, her co-star Phaedra Parks told a news outlet that she had heard rumors that Moore was indeed with child.
The former Miss America even talked about the IVF process to the media.
“It gets a little complicated, but when a woman ovulates, a certain day you have to come in to get tested to show how many follicles that you are making that ends up being eggs, the eggs that you have to retrieve and grow,” she told OK! magazine. “So it pretty much coincides with your cycle.”
Then, during a recent appearance on the late night show Watch What Happens Live, she teased to host Andy Cohen that she couldn’t confirm if she was pregnant, telling him he would have to wait like anyone else. She also made it a point to let a call-in inquirer know she was drinking water during the show which often features guests drinking alcoholic beverages while appearing on it.
It appears as she is eating up all the “bump watch” and is also egging it on. She recently posted a photo of herself in social media pushing a babuy stroller and captioned the photo“Practicing with #KingAndTwirl with the baby stroller.”
And recently she told BravoTV online:
If I were pregnant it would be a high risk pregnancy due to my age [She is 45 years old]. I feel more comfortable if and when my doctors feel I am in a safe stage to confirm a pregnancy. I appreciate all the amazing fans who are wishing me well. It feels good to know everyone is rooting for me and my happiness.
Good luck and God speed to her!
The wait is over on the sex of #BabyTucker
This Sunday before the premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta, its star Kandi Burruss and her husband cast-mate, TV productions manager and business owner Todd Tucker announced on Instagram that the couple are expecting a bouncing baby boy!
Before then, Burruss previewed the news on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.
“No, you didn’t [read I’m having twins]! No! I got one in there. Yes, we’re having a boy!” she revealed. “Oh, yeah, definitely [we wanted a son]. We both got girls now, so we really wanted a boy,” she shared on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. “We can’t agree on names right now. We keep going back and forth.”
It will be the first for each. Burruss has a teen daughter Riley, 13, and Tucker also has a teen daughter, Kaela, 19, both from previous relationships.
The news was announced with a bittersweet massage given that Tucker’s mom Sharon, who had been featured in several episodes of the show, suddenly passed away last year from a stroke:
“That’s baby Tucker!!! It’s a BOY!!!,” Tucker captioned his Instagram share of the ultrasound confirming the baby’s gender. “I wish my mom was here for this! She wanted this more than anything!!! But I know she see’s everything that’s happening and she’s happy and proud of us!!!” #blessed #MamaSharon”
Second-time Mom-to-Be Kandi Burruss, star of BravoTV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta, is also in the running for the hardest working preggers celeb.
The entrepreneur already has a successful adult toy individual franchise company (Bedroom Kandi), a popular late night web show (Kandi Koated Nights), a clothing boutique in Atlanta (TAGS) and a rising music indie label, all while balancing several reality TV shows, to add to her decade career penning chart toppers for music industry’s biggest names.
She recently announced that she and her husband Entertainment Producer Todd Tucker are planning to open a family restaurant. “My hubby & I are putting together our family restaurant & getting some tips from @chefjaaion. #coming2015 #ILoveToEatSoYouKnowItsGonnaBeGood #Foodie,” the former 90s girl band singer captioned a photo of herself with Tucker and friends on Instagram recently.
The Grammy-award winning multi-platinum songwriter also just wrapped a family maternity shoot with Atlanta-based celebrity photographer Drexina Nelson.
“My girls @latashawright @gochasalon & @shunmelson got me & my family right for our photoshoot with @drexinanelson. #BabybumpPics,” the pretty preginista captioned the photo of her glam squad who hooked her up for the photo shoot.Gorgeous!
This phenomenal-looking shoot was right after appearing with her entire family in the infamous Ebony magazine “Black Family ISSUES” edition with the controversial photo of a shattered image of The Huxtables from the famous 80s show The Cosby Show on the cover.
“I finally got my copy of the new #EbonyMagazine family issue that includes my family!” Burruss captioned the IG photo collage of the images of her family in the magazine. “Our family discusses the topic of blended families. Thank you @kiernamayo for including us in this issue! Wow I can’t believe my family is included in the issue with the Obama family & the controversial cover of the #Huxtables. #CosbyShow #RHOA #FirstFamily #Presidential #Obama”
Burruss also recently supported another one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Rasheeda, who recently launched a boutique herself called Pressed, also in the ATL. Good Stuff.
“I stopped by to see my sis @rasheedadabosschick. Got a few goodies for @rileyburruss at #Pressed while I was there. #FriendsSupportFriends #RasheedaAlwaysBusy #BossChick”. Nice!
Counting down to Baby Tucker. No word still on the gender. Burruss and Tucker each have one daughter from previous relationships, Riley (Burruss’) and Kayla (Tucker’s).
