Update on Chrissy Teigen: Her Hard Working Red Carpet Style and Baby #2’s Gender

Chrissy Teigen may be the hardest red-carpet working pregnant woman in Hollywood right now.

This Sunday, she glistened attending the 60th Grammy Awards and parties.

At Clive Davis’ annual Pre-Grammy party

The week before, the second-time mom-to-be was photographed while attending  the Monster Premiere during the 2018 Sundance Film Festival at Eccles Center Theatre on January 22, 2018 in Park City, Utah with her husband John Legend.

The Lip Sync Battle host, who has an almost 2-year old daughter, Luna Stephens, donned a black dress to the Lip Sync Battle LIVE: A Michael Jackson Celebration at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, CA earlier in this month.

And was seen at The Art of Elysium presents John Legend’s HEAVEN at Barker Hangar in Los Angeles, California.
Finally, last year she and hubby attended the GQ and Dior Homme private dinner in celebration of The 2017 GQ Men Of The Year Party at Chateau Marmont on December 7, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Teigen recently revealed that she is having a baby boy, sharing the news on her Instagram to her millions of fans and followers! Congrats! It follows a few interviews when she said that she and John were keeping it quiet for a while so they could have something sacred and private to themselves.

She also starred in a mid-show McDonald’s commercial during Sunday night’s award show. Watch it here: h/t BCKOnline  because I totally missed this otherwise!

 

So I See Chrissy Teigen is Following Our Pregnancy Advice

We consistently share a blog post about three things to never share with others about your baby in the oven until it is born, and I recently saw an interview with Chrissy Teigen sharing that she has adopted two of our core pieces of advice! (Well she didn’t give us credit for the advice, but that is besides the point! ha!)

During an interview with E! News during a media tour to discuss her Lip Sync Battle series the Twitter maven gave some insights on her other latest project: a brand new baby with husband John Legend.

Last go round, the model openly announced that she selected her baby’s gender because she felt her husband deserved a baby girl and she got lambasted for it in by the public in social media, mainly. This time, John asked her to keep it mum about the baby’s sex which they knew because they conceived it using in vitro fertilization.

“We had them on ice,” Chrissy joked. “So we know. We knew when we put it in, but John was like, ‘Make sure you don’t say it. Let’s have one thing for us,’ and of course I’m probably going to end up saying it, but I’m just going to do this favor to him for as long as I can.”

Good advice!

“Names are tough. What I learned was, never share your ideas,” she explained. “If you have a name idea, somebody is going to be like ‘No, I knew a person by that name in high school, and they were gross.’ That always happens.”

Yes, chile! This was also among our suggested no-no’s before baby is born!

The other is that you’re pregnant. Read why HERE!

She Picked Her Baby’s Sex in IVF then Felt Punished When Born with A Birth Defect

I love the Real Housewives series on Bravo TV though I am not always up to speed on the seasons and the newer members. I was catching up with the latest season of the Beverly Hills housewives series of the franchise when I got introduced to Teddi Jo Mellencamp Arroyave. (Yes, her dad is John Cougar Mellencamp. *swoon*)

The gorgeous blonde seems down-to-earth and has a 5-year olf daughter, Slate and 3-year old son,  Cruz, and a hunky security company owner husband Edwin Arroyave. During a couple dinner date hosted by Dorit Kemsley and her husband Paul “P.K.: Kemsley  in an early episode, Teddi and Edwin share about the guilt they endured over their son’s health following their decision to select his gender.

After getting pregnant easily the first time, they struggled the second time and turned to IVF for help. During the process, they had 12 embryos fertilized and all but one was female. Edwin wanted a boy, perhaps given they already had a daughter at the time, so they rejected the overwhelming majority of available fertilized embryos to implant the only male egg.

Their son was born with two healthy instead of three aortic chambers and as a result, may have lifelong challenges though he is quite healthy now and the prognosis seems good that he will live a good life. It started out pretty horrific.

“We had a really scary delivery with Cruz,” Teddi relayed during  the episode, explaining that Cruz wasn’t breathing when he was born. “They put him on me and one of the nurses was like, ‘He’s not okay, Code Blue.’ And I was just sitting there, and he wasn’t breathing.”

As docs rushed in to attend to their baby, Edwin immediately connected the trauma to his decision to pick the baby’s sex.

“I just remember my sisters were in the room and they’re crying. [Teddi’s] crying. I was like, ‘Holy crap,’ ” he said. “I was just praying like, ‘Lord, give me one more chance. I’ll never do this again.’ ”

He was referring to the selecting of the baby’s sex during in vitro fertilization.

“I made sure it was a boy,” he told the Kemsleys. “I kept saying, ‘I want the boy, I want the boy.’ ”

The couple sincerely expressed regret and felt they were being punished for picking their child’s gender (or sex) when they could have just been grateful for whatever God gave them. I am presuming this. Not putting words in their mouth.

“I’m his mother. My job is to protect him, and that little bit of me who felt like I was selecting something — I choose for him to be a boy, God didn’t choose for me — it’ll always make me feel a little guilty,” Teddi said.

“IVF is one of the hardest things you can go through as a woman,” she added. “One of your biggest jobs is to make babies and when you can’t, you feel sad cause you’re not able to make your baby. And you also feel sad cause you feel like you’re failing.”

You guys know I have an institutional memory and so the disclosure and exchange reminded me a bit of Toni Braxton who revealed in her book that she felt that God punished her for a previous abortion she decided to have in the middle of her then-sizzling hot career. Her son Diezel has Autism. She since went on to explain that her un-evolved notions at the time have changed, after a lot of backlash.

It is not uncommon as I, personally, know women who had fertility struggles and said they felt they too were being punished for an abortion they elected to have when younger. It is a touchy subject.

The ethics of selecting a child’s gender came into play publicly among another celebrity lately. Chrissy Teigen revealed that she felt her first child should be a girl because she wanted her husband, John Legend, to have a daughter. She also got blasted for expressing her decision.

In any event, I have no opinion on the matter other than I am happy that people are being open about these very sensitive issues beause someone out there can relate and perhaps can benefit from hearing and seeing these topics actively and candidly being aired.

Bravo! (Pun intended)

Our Pick of the Top 13 Most Stylish Preggers Celeb of 2017

Last year, we followed some pretty stylish celebs throughout their pregnancies.

We selected the top twelve of the most fashionable.

 

#13 Chrissy Teigen, #12 Duchess Cate and #11 Naturi Naughton

13. Model, author and TV host Chrissy Teigen announced that she and hubby John Legend were expecting again after welcoming their first child, Luna following years of fertility struggles. We’ve seen her style focus on feminine maxi dresses with intricate floral themes this pregnancy.

12. Duchess Catherine is also expecting, but she is on baby number three with husband Prince William. She always carry small which makes her bump tough to discern under her usually monochromatic sheath dresses, nautical structure dresses, and rider pants and boots under sweater, her usual fashion scheme.

11. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Power star Naturi Naughton get dressed up to promote the third season of her hit STARZ channel show. She mixed it up with bold color, bump hugging dresses, fun and flirty dresses and bright pumps.

#9 Bar Rafaeli, #8 Behati Prinsloo and #7 Tia Mowry Hardrict

10. Models models and more models. Though Miranda Kerr is on her second pregnancy, we loved seeing her and fellow Victoria Secret runway stars 9.  Bar Refaeli and 8. Behati Prinsloo show off their ity bity bikini wearing selves on the Gram. Prinsloo and her husband, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine, are parents to a daughter, Dusty Rose, they welcomed in September 2016.

7. One half of our fave twin stars, Tia Mowry Hardrict also shows up on our top ten list as she has been showing off a more stylish pregnancy this round and some of it on her new YouTube video series show, Tia Mowry’s Quick fix. She too had some struggles before this pregnancy. Her son Cree with actor husband Cory Hardrict is 6 years old and she had discussed wanting to have a second shortly after he was born but was hamstrung by endometriosis.

 

#6 Toya Wright, #5 Amal Clooney and #2 Beyonce

6. Reality TV star Toya Wright has always been a fashion plate on the Gram so it was no surprise that she continue to wow us with her maternity looks. All eyes were on international human rights lawyer 5. Amal Clooney who welcomed her first children, twins with husband George Clooney this summer.

 

4. Lauren Conrad, 3. Ciara, . Miranda Kerr

4. Fashion designer and lifestyle brand Lauren Conrad didn’t share too many public photos of herself while preggers but shots of her baby shower shows she kept is streamlined, simple and feminine. And pop star 3. Ciara also was understated during her second pregnancy with husband Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

2. Beyonce showed a lot more of herself this pregnancy compared to last when she remained a virtual recuse. As a result, her blog and social streams were flooded with fabulous, over-the-top, avante-garde looks! 

Number 1 on our list is Khloe Kardashian who only acknowledge that she is 6 months preggers in the last few weeks of 2017. She sticks to a mainly black palette but her choice of oversized stylish sweaters and sweatshirts is comfy, relate able yet chic.

Inside Expecting Chrissy Teigen’s Pan Am Theme 32nd Birthday Party

Second-time mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen celebrated her 32nd Birthday at the Pan Am Experience in Pacoima, California.

The celebration took place aboard a Pan Am American World Airways 747 at the adult theme park. Guests included her husband John Legend, and their couple bffs Kim Kardashian-West and her husband Kanye West. Kim dressed in a Jackie Kennedy Onasis pale pink dress, white heels, dark shades and wore a buffant wig.

Teigen was outfitted in a salmon colored tweet 60s style suit and square handbag, quite fitting with the era theme.

Kim’s mom Kris Jenner attended as well in a black cape, neck scarf and carried vintage luggage.

The party attendees played Bingo and used bingo markers with Teigen’s face on it. She later got up doing a full in-flight demonstration while dangling a fake cigarette from her mouth.

Theme era parties are all the rage among adult celebs. Serena Williams held a 1950s baby shower and Southern Charm’s Cameran Eubanks had a 1960s-era Slim Aarons baby shower.

A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

This is welcome news and we are happy for the celebrity couple, especially because we know that they had struggled to conceive initially. Teigen also took to Snapchat to share a photo of her bump, captioning the photo, “Very excited to not to have to hide this anymore,” adding, “Everyone I told first were like ‘uh yeah, we knew, thanks.'” Funny!

 

Congrats! This is the second child for them both!

They welcomed their first child last April.

Our Fave Stylish Casual Celeb Weekend Looks

Celebs dress up for red carpets, premieres, and Tv appearances and on weekends, while running errands and traveling, they  get to dress down.

But because they’re always being photographed, they don’t have the luxury of looking bad even on their days off.

Case in point: Chrissy Teigen, Gisele Bundchen and Halle Berry always look fab.

This week is no different.

Teigen was chic in denim, wearing an Alexander Wang jacket and distressed cuffed Re/done jeans with a cute yellow Gucci t-shirt and matching monogram belt. The model accented her look with a cute pair of Saint Laurent shades, a Hermes purse, suede Balenciaga booties and Gold XIVKARATS hoops.

Gisele Bundchen rocked it in a rugged grey sweat shirt paired with cropped green Rosa Chá, Chanel shades, a Givenchy travel bag and a funky pair of black high tops by Golden Goose 

Berry looked fashionable in a long black and white leopard print Dolce and Gabbana over distressed grey denim jeans, black leather booties and a black blouse.
