Guests gathered at an outdoor roof top event, adorned in pink and blue balloons, florals and featuring Ike’s Sandwiches, sides and salads from Tender Greens,  and a pink and blue decorated multi layer tower cake from Magnolia Bakery.

Moments before the reveal, the couple looked at each other before counting down to the explosion of blue powder. Milian’s 9-year-old daughter, Violet, who she shares with her ex Youngdell Nash, also known as The-Dream, cheered right along with them.

She has been dating Pokora since 2017.

Earlier, in videos posted on his account, Milian teased the reveal. “It’s a big day,” she teased on her Instagram Story. “What’s it going to be?”

Pokora shared the news on his Insta. “We are waiting for you my son 🙌🏼🙏🏼💙,” he captioned a photo of the moment when poppers revealed blue powder into the air!



Milian told US Weekly she hopes to have a natural birth this go around.

“I tried to with my daughter, but unfortunately we were in labor for so long we ended up having to do an emergency C-section,” she explained. “So, we’ll see. I don’t know if I can do natural, but I hope I can.”

The couple announced the pregnancy earlier this month.

Monica Brown is Our 2018 Posh Style Mom Icon!

It’s been a minute since we proclaimed a celebrity mom as a fashion style icon. After stalking Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum singer Monica Brown’s Instagram page and various presses sightings of the fabulous singer, the editors at Bellyitch have determined that the mom to stylish three is deserving to be our 2018 honoree!

For those unfamiliar, this recognition is given to a celebrity mom, usually one who has more than one child, who also has displayed effortless style, not necessarily created by a stylist, who inspires others and Monica is it!

We love the R&B recording artist’s  Instagram posts which are reminiscent of what you’d  see on any “it” Fashion Grammer or Style Blogger’s feed.

Monica’s fashion aesthetic consists of lots of bold colors, thigh high boots and chic dusters. She isn’t afraid to switch up her hair color from crimson, to pitch black to platinum. The mom of three, including 4-year old daughter Laiyah, 9-year old son Romelo and 12-year son Rocko,  has worn down her hair bone straight, in a croute pixie cut or intertwined in waist-length faux locs.

Her page is bright and totally themed out, similar to other influencers out there! See it HERE!

Ms. Brown can do no wrong in our book. The Atlanta-based philanthropist is married to NBA player Shannon Brown since 2010 when the two wed in a secret ceremony. Monica is also step mom to Shannon’s son Shannon Brown, Jr. from a previous relationship. Laiyah is the couple’s only child together as Rocko and Romelo’s dad is Monica’s ex, actor and rapper Rodney Hill, Jr also known as Rocko

The last time we named someone this honor was 2017 and it was given to philanthropist and end ex model Helen Lasichanh, Pharrell’s wife. Before her, the honor was given to Kourtney Kardashian in 2015. Before her, in 2014, Jennifer Hudson, who was the fourth mom to a single child to get the award. Before her, P!nk got it in 2012. And former First Lady Michelle Obama was dubbed an icon in 2011. Other designees include, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Kelly RipaVictoria BeckhamTichina Arnold and  Christina Milian.

Here is a quick rundown of some of ourm fave looks Monica has rocked over the years as shared in her super fly Insta!

Beyonce HBCU Tribute Headliner and Celeb Moms at Coachella 2018

Nicole Richie, Beyonce Headliner, Christina Milian, Behati Prinsloo and Alessandra Ambrosio at the 2018 Coachella mMusic festival.

Many of our celeb moms headed to Empire Polo Field in Indio, California this weekend for the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

 Nicole Richie  showed up in white to her  Revolve x Nicole Richie House of Harlow x Urban Decay lunch. Behati Prinsloo was there looking fly in Alexander Wang zip-front pants, Vans and a bucket hat. Alessandra Ambrosio showed up looking fab and outfitted to the free spirit theme that is common among attendees.

Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner along with Kylie Jenner and her bestie Jordyn Woods headed down.  

Whitney Port and Rachel Zoe were photographed in an iconic all white pic. Loved Christina Milian‘s Boho dress too!

Beyonce headlined by opening up her set in a regal gold and black caped outfit that resembled the regal African queen Nefertiti but then she quickly stripped from her opener fit to a custom Balmain athleisure look complete with a gold cropped hoodie with her initials embezzled in jewels on the front, denim cutoffs and shimmering high high toots.

Before it was over, mom to Rumi, Sir and Blue Ivy Carter had a few costume changes including a PCV leather leotard, and she brought her husband Jay Z out to do their duet of their 2006 song together “Deja Vu” and her sister Solange to perform “Get Me Body.”

There was also a Destiny’s Child reunion as our other alum Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined Queen By for a few of their hits, “Lose My Breath”, “Say My Name” and “Soldier”.

Her set was an ode to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) because it featured a large marching band, drum and majorette line, reminiscent to the types you’d see performing during a homecoming game at Howard, Flordia State or Grambling State.  (edit: There were actual FSU bandmembers playing). There was even an interlude when she acted as the prophyte initiating a new line into her fictional fraternity “B A K” — which could stand for Beyonce and Knowles or, Beyonce Phi Knowles or Beyonce Delta Knowles (couldn’t tell if that was an A, Delta or Phi symbol)  who knows. The mock probate was entertaining!

A few of the dance moves during the set include “stepping” which is a traditional hand, clap and stomp movement common in Black Greek step shows with roots in African dance, ritual and customs.

Beyonce was supposed to headline at the festival last year, but she postponed her appearance after she announced she was pregnant with twins.

Here is Beyonce’s complete set per JustJared.com‘s snoops. See the entire performance HERE!

8-Months Pregnant Reality TV Star and Singer KeKe Wyatt Husband Asks for Divorce

TV One‘s R&B Divas: Atlanta alum Keke Wyatt is 8 months pregnant and recently shared on Instagram that her husband of 7  years, Michael Ford, wants a divorce. The singer, who has a phenomenal voice (I heard her in person) revealed the news in a tearful video re-posted on gossip site, Shaderoom.

“You want to know something, America? When you 8 months pregnant and you got a child sick, in and out of the hospital, and your husband got the nerve to tell you that he wants a divorce,” she says in the video. “Because… he says that you’re an emotional wreck. He says that from the very beginning you never trusted me and all that kind of stuff. Telling other people, other women that we getting a divorce and if she calls…like, what?! I’m so done with Michael Jamar. Y’all can have him and roast his ass. I don’t care.”

#PressPlay: Praying for #KekeWyatt ??

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

Afterwards, Twitter certainly roasted Michael Jamar (Ford), per a run down of the dragging by VH1.com. 

Recently, Wyatt revealed that one of her children is battling cancer and she shaved all of her hair off in support of that child, Essence reports.

The couple had also recently babymooned in Hawaii in advance of the arrival of their fourth child together. Wyatt has three children from a previous marriage to her ex husband and road manager, Rahmat Morton. Ford has a child from a previous relationship and Wyatt suffered a still born at the end of her marriage with Morton.

She is pregnant for the 8th time though (including her still born baby) but if you count her step child, she is mom 9 x over!

She joins a list of celebrity women who broke up with her partners before the baby was born. This list includes Heidi Klum, Christina Milian, Kelis, Alexis Knapp, Mel B and January Jones.

Trend Alert: 80s Acid & Stone Washed Jeans are BACK!

acid wash and stone washed trend

I was in the mall the other day and realized that acid and stone washed denim was back in style. Whoa! How did I miss this during the last season’s international Fashion Weeks ready-to-wear runway shows?

When I last saw that trend, it was the 80s and I was pretty sure back then that it would never make a come back. Never say never because the style has always been spotted on some of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums in recent weeks such as Hayden Panetierre, Busy Phillips, Kim Kardashian and Christina Milian.

And some of the trendier maternity lines are up on it. They have acid and stone washed offerings for the preginista who wants to stay hip and current during pregnancy.

 

And for new and veteran moms, many non-maternity brands are selling the trend too.

 

Would you revisit the 80s and go there?

 

2015 BET Awards Red Carpet: What & Who Our Star Moms Wore

2015 bet awards

We loved the interesting selections our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums wore on the red carpet last night at the 2015 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater  in Los Angeles, California. As usual, we’re doing our rundown on the designers who outfitted the ladies who walked the red carpet.

Kelly Rowland rocked a black asymmetric feathered mini frock by Lever Couture which featured a mock turtleneck and billowy sleeve cascading from the sleeves with slick back hair. It was a daring and bold move.

Amber Rose came hand in hand with her BFF Blac Chyna, both Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums. Each wore matching white suits and bustiers from lingerie designer La Perla. They even shared a kiss on the red carpet to celebrate the US Supreme Court’s decision which opened the door for gay couples in all states to marry.

Christina Milian also arrived in white. The reality TV star, actress and singer came decked out in a jeweled halter jumpsuit made by Erevos Aether and paired with Ruby Stella jewels and Jimmy Choo sandals. Cayooot!

Ciara made another fab choice by arriving in a plunging neckline Wes Gordon sheer dress made of embroidered metal, accented with minimal jewels and Stuart Weitzan pumps. She arrived with her new beau NFL Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Brandy went with her signature mini dress with a flare in this grey and black Michael Costello color block dress with pink pumps. Love the hair!

Lil Kim looked amaze balls as well while performing during the Bad Boys tribute. She popped out of a hole in the stage to the glee and delight of the audience.

6 celebrity couples who split up before baby was born

Bellyitch Rewind
I saw this smokin’ hawt photo of Christina Milian today and thought boy is her ex singer/ mega producer The Dream missing out. The couple was one of several celebrity pairs to split in the middle of a pregnancy and BEFORE the baby was born.
Christina Milian was 8 months pregnant when she filed for divorce from The Dream  in 2010.
Personally, I know of a few friends who wound up splitting with their boyfriend or spouse before having their baby and each of them say it was very challenging being pregnant and not at least having someone to help them through those challenging months. A few have said, in hindsight, they would’ve waited it out until baby was born. Oy! Here are four other celebrities who split before their child was born:
In 2004, four months before delivering her 1st child, son Leni, whose dad is billionaire Flavio Briatore, Heidi Klum started dated Seal, who she later married and had 3 kids with before they too split in 2012.
Rapper Nas and singer Kelis were in the middle of filming their MTV reality TV show when they split while she was 7 months pregnant with their first child together in 2009. 
Alexis Knapp had to get Ryan Phillippe to submit to a paternity test to prove that the child she was carrying was his.  The two split before Knapp confirmed she was pregnant in 2010. 
Ex Spice Girl Melanie Brown too had to force comedian/actor Eddie Murphy to submit to a paternity test to prove he was the father to her then-soon-to-be born daughter Angel Iris born ironically on Murphy’s 47th birthday, April 3, 2007.  The couple had split in 2006 and back then there was no way of proving paternity until the baby was born. 
No one knows for sure who the dad is to Mad Men star January Jones’ first child, son Xander, but she announced she was pregnant in May 2011, five months after splitting with her boyfriend Saturday Night Live‘s  Jason Sudeikis. Rumors swirled that Ashton Kutcher may have been the dad. The two are good  friends.

Edited to Add: I found this post of 12 Celebrities that broke up before the baby was born that Crushable did a year ago which also includes Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan, Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup and Tiki and Ginny Barber which I so would have added to this list had I remembered about them too!
