Tonight, second-time mom-to-be Carrie Underwood co-hosts the Country Music Awards with Brad Paisley at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The American Idolalum has not let anything like being pregnant and incubating a whole new human stop her from performing the honors for the 11th time in a row.
Tonight will be the 52nd annual iteration of the show dubbed “Country music’s biggest night on TV.”
Personally, I’m excited to see how she will be serving her baby bump as only Carrie can.
Since announcing news of her pregnancy this summer, Underwood has been seen rocking a sequinned mini at the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on October 9, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Similarly, the “Think Before He Cheats” singer glistened and glowed at the arrivals of the 2018 CMT Artists of The Year event at Schermerhorn Symphony Center on October 17, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee
That same night, she went short and glittery again while performing on stage.
Earlier that month, we spotted her super early in her pregnancy looking fab at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena on September 22, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
So we know to expect some ultimate swerve from this hard-working mama!
The American Music Awards went down on Monday, October 8 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California and several of our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums performed, hosted and presented awards, and current 2nd-time mom to be Carrie Underwood won for Favorite Female Artist- Country, while new first-time mom Cardi B won Favorite Soul/R&B song for her duo with Bruno Mars, “Finesse“, and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop song for “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)“.
Jennifer Lopez hit the stage to perform her latest Sia-written song “Limitless” but before that showed off her hawt figure in a pink black belted Georges Chakra gown with fierce Jimmy Choo shoes.
We also saw Ciara make an amazing performance with musical icon Missy Elliot, amedley of hits “Level Up” and “Dose,” Ciaralooked really fab in a super cute DSquared2 mini dress and shoes accented with Pandora jewelry.
Underwood also performed, her hit song “Spinning Bottles“, after bumping it up on the red carpet in
Singer Ashlee Simpson‘s sister in law Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the show and the Ashlee and Evan E! reality TV star showed up to the carpet with hubby while wearing a sequinned blue Monique Lhuillier dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Narcisa Pheres earrings, and rings by Effy and 14 Karats.

“I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” the country crooner, who is mom of 3-year-old Isaiah, told CBS Sunday Morning. “We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.”
While Underwood, 35, says that she and Fisher, 38, remained optimistic following her first miscarriage, they suffered another loss later that year. “In the beginning it was like, ‘OK, God, we know this is, just wasn’t your timing. And that is all right. We will bounce back and figure our way through it.’ And got pregnant again in the spring, and it didn’t work out,” she explained.
The Grammy winner went on to say that she suffered a third miscarriage the following year. “Got pregnant again, early 2018. Didn’t work out. So, at that point, it was just kind of like, ‘OK, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?’”
The “Cry Pretty” singer admitted she wrestled with her emotions following her losses. “I had always been afraid to be angry,” she said. “Because we are so blessed … I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s OK, because [Isaiah] is amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No.”
Still, she says she got angry after what she thought was yet another miscarriage in her current pregnancy. “I got mad … I was like, ‘Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid. ‘And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt.”
Country music pop star Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher are expecting their second child. As E!reports:
“You might be wondering or asking, ‘Carrie, why is your tour starting in May?’ Well…yay! Mike and Isaiah and I are absolute over the moon and excited to be adding a little fish to our pond,” Underwood said in a social media video, as the camera panned up to balloons spelling out B-A-B-Y. “This has been a dream come true with the album and baby news and all that stuff,” she added. “We are just so excited and just so glad that you guys can share in this with us and be a part of this with us. I love you guys. We’ll see you on the road in 2019. Have a great day!” The singer has not revealed how far along she is in her pregnancy, or if she knows the baby’s sex.
For her pregnancy reveal, she modeled the CALIA by Carrie Underwoodmetallic foil perforated half zip jacket in rose gold, available at DICK’s Sporting Goods or at CALIA Studio.
Underwood recently spoke about wanting to have more children in Redbook. “I’m 35, so we may have missed our chance to have a big family,” she confessed in the September issue. “We always talk about adoption and about doing it when our child or children are a little older.”
The couple also has a son, Isaiah Michael Fisher, 3. Congrats!
Serena Williams returned to world championship tennis 8-months after giving birth to her first child, now 8-months old Alexis Olympia Ohanian, and suited up for the occasion in a black body suit that has been called a Wakanda– Black Panther-inspired and Super Hero catsuit.
“Catsuit anyone? For all the moms out there who have a tough recovery from pregnancy – here you go,” the 23-time Grand Slam Tennis Champ captioned an Instagram post of herself styling and profiling in the suit about to give up a fierce serve. “If I can do it, so can you. Love you all!!”
“Introducing Serena, my first independent clothing line for all the ladies out there being awesome,” the 36-year old, 5’9″ phenom states in the ‘about us’ section of the line’s webpage. “My designs are inspired by strong, sexy, sophisticated, sassy, sure, smart, stylish, silly, and spontaneous women who are living their best lives, or making it up as they go—kinda like me.”
Williams already endorses and is the product ambassador and spokespersons for other clothing brands and lends her names to some collaboration, like these below:
However, Serena, is her first independent line.
Editor’s Note: Personally, I am feeling them because I live in sweats and love to rock mock t-neck crop tops. So me! So the mom on the run, who manages several projects at the same time while trying to keep her household in order and still feel feminine and sexy because she may be a wife also.
The new mom won’t stop. She is also featured in the upcoming July issue of Harper’s Bazaar! Can’t wait to read it! Congrats on the new line!
I’ve missed a few red carpet coverage because…life but I was quite excited about what I saw this week at the American Music Awards, held at the Microsoft Theater on November 19, 2017 in Los Angeles, California….A lot of pink and black, but not together!
Not a mom but a blog fave, Tracee Ellis Ross killed it as host and the tribute to her mom Diana Ross who took home the Lifetime Achievement Award was all that and a bag of chips! (Do the kids still use that phrase?)
In the mix was her daughter in law Ashlee Simpson Ross, whose husband is Evan Ross, the baby boy of the Ross family. their daughter Jagger Snow stole the show! Ashlee wore a Christian Siriano dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry.
She was part of the sequins in black trim along with Clarkson who also went bold and brave in a velour and gold gown hugging her gorgeous hour glass figure. I’m loving her sleek blunt parted ombre hair too.
Kelly Rowland too did black with floral in a interesting long split Galia Lahav dress with sheer sleeves, fresh off witnessingSerena Williams‘ nuptials in New Orleans last Thursday. Her good friend Ciara went a bit S&M in an asymmetric black leather coat dress by Alexandre Vauthier haute couture and thigh high boots with wet look hair. Nicole Kidman played in safe in Black as well but looked stunning as usual in an Olivier Theyskens dress, Giuseppe Zanotti boots, a Versace bag, Fred Leighton jewels, and an Omega watch
Opting for the lighter part of the spectrum was Heidi Klum in a pink and gold slip dress with a deep v plunging neckline which is in a vintage Gianni Versace from Morphew, accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Mom-to-be country singer Jessie James Decker did a shade of pink too in a bump hugging off-the-shoulder dress, a shade of pink. Speaking of P!nk, she too went with the color of her name in a hot pink and tulle Monique Lhullier dressand her signature pink hair. Jenna Dewan-Tatum in gold and looked hot as usual in a beautiful Julien MacDonald gown, John Hardy jewels, and Giuseppe Zanotti strappy sandals.
Congrats to our alums Shakira for winning Favorite Latin artist and Carrie Underwood for winning Favorite Female Country Artist.
One of the first celebrities we ever bump watched, Christina Aquilera brought the house down in a tribute to the 25th anniversary of the Kevin Costner, Whitney Houston film, The Bodyguard singing “I Will Always Love You”, “I Have Nothing” and “Run to You” and “I’m Every Woman”. She killed it in my book! Did all the songs justice and Whitney with her voice, range and power! Wow!
As usual, we scoped the Red Carpet arrivals at another award show looking for our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.
This time, we spotted quite a few at last night’s American Country Music Awards which was held at the Toshiba Plaza and T–Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Clay Walker also announced that he and wife Jessica Craig are expecting my cupping her belly.
Congrats you the expectant couples.
My fave dress wasn’t worn by a Bumpwatch alum but Lauren Alaina who looked stunning in this cornflower blue Leanne Marshall from her spring 2017 collection.
