Ciara and Russell Wilson Announce they’re Expecting a Baby

 

wilson and ciara

Pop singer Ciara and her brand new husband Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson are expecting their first child together. The singer announced the news on her birthday this past Tuesday, October 25 by posting a black and white photo of her and Wilson lounging in a chair with his hands cradling her tummy.

Wilson posted the same image on his account with the caption, “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay

People have been speculating that she was with child for a while now given a tiny bump that could be seen during a video she did last month and the fact she has been wearing a lot more clothes lately when she is known for showing off her very fit and trim tummy.

This is the first child for Wilson and Ciara’s second. She has a 2-year-old son from a previous relationship with hip hop artist  Future. (note: he is NOT rapper. I’ve seen so many sites describe him as such)

The couple famously abstained from sex before their July wedding in Liverpool, England. They had been dating since early last year.

Happy Belated Birthday, CiCi!!

Now that the cat is out of the bag, the part time fashion model didn’t hesitate to post up a photo of herself in all black with some fierce gladiator heels revealing her baby bump while in Los Angeles to attend the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America)’s Awards. Cute!

The IG Video Fueling Ciara Pregnancy Rumor 



There’s nothing like a Miss America pageant to fuel pregnancy speculation.

R&B singer and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Ciara rocked out with several former Miss Americas for a number shown during this Sunday’s broadcast of the historic annual scholarship pageant.

Among the former beauty queens was 8-months preggers, Katie Stam Irk, the 2009 winner. She was super cute in her moves.

In a mutually shared Instagram video, Ciara appears to have a slight bump and an insider said she was expecting, celebrity gossip blogger B. Scott reported on his blog.

It very well could have been a large meal or a slightly bloated belly or a few extra pounds.

Commenters under her photos since then have been speculating over the Promise singer’s choice of looser fitting clothes. 

Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tied the knot earlier this year after a year+ of celibate courtship.

The collage above features photos of the venue from its official website to give you a sense of the accommodations and space.

The couple hosted a rehearsal dinner for about 100 guests Tuesday night at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool, and thanks them all for attending, E! News reported.

The bride wore a stunning custom Roberto Cavalli gown created by the luxury brand’s creative director Peter Dundas, TMZ reports. Guests reportedly were told to not bring their smartphones and mobile devices to the wedding or reception. The happy couple wanted to be the first to reveal that what many thought was a dress rehearsal was actually a surprise wedding. The couple managed to keep everything under wraps until Wilson and Ciara posted the first pics on their respective Instagram pages. “We are The Wilsons! the “Like a Boy” singer captioned her version of the photo, and Russell did too.

Ciara has a son Future Zahir with her ex fiance hip hop recording artist Future. The two are engaged in legal custody battle, subliminal social media shading and a $15 million defamation lawsuit. Several of our bumpwatch alums attended including Kelly Rowland, and Jennifer Hudson; who were among many other celebs like LaLa Anthony. Kelly and LaLa were among the bridesmaids, reportedly, and wore individual, non-matching,  black gowns designed by Christian Siriano.

2016 Grammys Red Carpet: All Black Everything, Slits & Lesser Known Designers

grammy 2016

Ok. This 2016 Red Carpet report is very late because this year, instead of just covering the Red Carpet, I actually took the time I usually spend to assemble my red carpet coverage to instead  actually watch the show. Wrong move.

  • sigh *

Besides a few highlights, the 58th annual Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California was very underwhelming. Even the fashion on the Red Carpet was * meh * .

One of the best parts wasn’t even in the show, but our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Gwen Stefani doing the first ever Live Music Video of her latest single “Make Me Love You” in a Target sponsored spot.

I kept wanting the award show broadcast to get better but it didn’t really rise the level of awesomeness I’m used to. Anyway, so enough of my excuses. Back to the Red Carpet coverage.

This year, the theme I saw woven in many of the looks was Black. Also there were plenty deep Slits in the leg and I saw several lesser-known designers shine.

As usual, while many people stood out, we focused on the celebrity moms we’ve featured on the blog before.

Alessandra Ambrosio stayed true to Versace and her ring game was on fire!

TV host and former reality TV star Vanessa Simmons looked quite regal in yellow.

Ciara bared leg and then some in a sexy Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture gown. I dare say she won the battle of whose slit could go up the farthest.

And Carrie Underwood looked stunning in a Nicolas Jebran satin ball gown also with a deep side slit.

adele chrissy vanessa 2016 grammys

Adele stuck to her signature black in a sequinned Givenchy dress accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen looked quite royal in Yousef Al-Jasmi with Stuart Weitzman heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Between the heels and the long cape, I admit I was biting my nails in hoping she didn’t trip given she’s in her third trimester of her pregnancy.

Vanessa Lachey went for the vixen look in her Michael Cinco butterfly overlay sequined dress with a very sheer bottom.

Adele did deviate from black and went with Givenchy again for her stage performance of her latest single “All I Ask”.

 

She had a slight glitch in the beginning when the mics for the piano apparently fell off and landed on the baby grande’s strings. It made her sound off pitch or key at times. Apparently, those in the Staples Center couldn’t tell as they heard a near flawless version of the song.



 

Underwood also rocked out with Sam Hunt on stage

And finally, Queen Bey made an appearance to announce Record of the Year in slick back hair, natural make up and a organza, lace and embroidered gown.

2015 VMA Awards Red Carpet & Show Roundup

vma 2015 fashion bellyitchblog.com

 

Tonight was another celeb-studded musical event at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums graced the red carpet before the event, took the stage and were nominated for quite a few awards.

Mega star Beyonce Knowles Carter was a no show even though she was nominated for 5 awards for her “7/11” Video (Best Female, Pop, Editing, Choreography, Video of the Year). She won only one for Best Editing.

Jennifer Hudson couldn’t make it either despite being up for the Best Video with a social message award for her song, “I Still Love You.”

On the red carpet, model Lily Aldridge stunned in a black Alexandre Vauthier couture gown with a plunging neckline, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Jen Meyer Jewelry earrings, Anita Ko bracelets, and an Edie Parker clutch.

Britney Spears showed mucho cleavage in a showgirls-esque gold sequined number with cutouts in the tummy.

Kim Kardashian West covered her bump in a long sleeve draped military style dress.

Her sis Kourtney Kardashian was giving up the sexy in a hot pink jumpsuit, fresh off of winning our 2015 Posh Mom Icon award.

Their family’s arch nemeses Amber Rose and Blac Chyna came dressed in matching nude outfits with cartoon caricture lettering featuring all the insulting names that people have called the duo who are headed for an MTV reality TV show this fall.

The show wasn’t without its dramatic moments, of course, including some toxic exchanges between show host Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj who won the Best Rap Video Award for video for “Anaconda“. It was the same video Minaj suggested was deserving for being up for the Video of the Year Award but was slighted because she felt the women featured in the video weren’t thin.  Taylor Swift assumed it was a slam against her given all the women in her Bad Blood video were pretty much rail thin and the two had a brief Twitter beef which reeled their fans in on it and was more or less squashed until Cyrus added her two cents during a promo appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Cyrus said Minaj was “not nice”.  The rest is history and can be seen on Twitter but since we’re about promoting positivity by and among women, we’ll leave it at that.

Ciara showed off a new bob in a fringed black outfit and Law and Order‘s Mariska Hargitay made an appearance in all black while walking with the other members of “The #SwiftSquad” from Taylor Swift‘s “Video of the Year” winning video “Bad Blood.”

Celebrity Couples whose Union Didn’t Survive Their Baby’s First Birthdays

bellyitcblog.com spli up

US Weekly reports that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have split after 11 years together.

It is the latest in a slate of high-profile celeb break ups this summer including Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Break ups are sad and we’ve notice that in the 7 years that Bellyitch Blog has been in existence, a substantial amount of celebrity women who we have had on our “bumpwatch” list have broken up with their respective significant others.

Some broke up before the baby was even born: Christina Milian, Kelis, Heidi Klum and January Jones,and many more split with their respective hubby/baby daddies before they even gave birth.

Last year, CiaraEva Marcille (nee Pigford),  and Amber Rose split with their partners before each of  their baby’s turned 6 months old. The separations have been messy, still.  A few years ago, Selma Blair and her ex Jason Bleick split up 14 months after welcoming their first child together.

Others we’ve covered who have called it quits include: The Jamie Foxx show actress Garcelle Beauvais, TV host Padma Lakshmi from Top Chef, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Freeman from My Wife and Kids, Lauryn Hill, Kimora Lee Simmons (Djimon Hounsou days), Hilary Duff, Fantasia, Halle Berry, Jill Scott, Kate Hudson, Jamie Lyn Spears, Lauren London, Monyetta Shaw (NeYo’s ex), Golden Brooks from “Girlfriends”.

At this point, it’s probably safer to start chronicling those who are still together because they are the new exception, not the rule in Hollywood, it seems. But hey, so long as everyone is happier and better off apart and the off-springs are co-parented well with little to minimum drama, right?

No judgment from us, okay. We’re  just pointing out the trends and facts. Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts! (*smirk*)

2015 ESPY Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

espy 2015 red carpet

Yesterday was The 2015 ESPYS at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California and as usual, we spotted some of the celebrity women we have featured in the past on the Red Carpet before the show. Halle Berry, Britney Spears, Ciara, Mel B and Lisa Leslie all made a turn on the crimson strip.

Kim Kardashian West attended but did not walk the Red Carpet but did have a great seat with all of her family to witness her Step-Dad  the former Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

Here is the rundown of what the five who walked the carpet wore:

ciara

I really dug the belted magenta ombre Elie Saab Fall 2014 goddess dress Ciara wore while accompanying her beau NFL’s Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. I thought her Jimmy Choo heels were hawt! She was working that side slit.

halle berry

Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry was on hand to present the Pat Tillman Award for Service to Danielle Green, a former Notre Dame basketball player, Iraq war veteran, and Purple Heart recipient. She went with a fit and flare flirty black lace and leather mini dress with bell cuffs.  It was cute. Not the best I’ve seen on her. I didn’t really dig the messy tussled hair with this outfit. I guess she was going for rocker edgy. Meh.

I did love her wrap around ankle Brian Atwood heels and the Sylva and Cie jewels.

britney spears

Britney Spears attended and presented the award to the Best Female Athlete. She looked cute but quite uncomfortable in a fringe sequined Davidson Zanine dress that looked like one of the numbers she wears in her Vegas show. All of the pics showed her with her hands covering her bum

mel b in red

 

 America’s Got Talent judge Mel B (Melanie Brown) looked super gorge in a simple pencil length red hot dress with criscross bodice, red pumps, box clutch and cherry red lipstick. The slick back is perfect for this dress. It’s simple and elegant.

lisa leslie espy

Former WNBA player Lisa Leslie was vibrant and bright in a sunflower draped dress. It contrasted perfectly against her skin. She accented it with a box clutch, gold arm asp, bracelets and fan earrings. The sports commentator went with ringlets but would have looked better if it was an updo. She didn’t present but is the only athlete among the bunch!

 

 

 

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.

image

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.

image

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!

image

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.

image

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!

monica

Monica  looked regal in this flowing Stéphane Rolland Couture cape gown. Simply Stunning!

lil kim

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.

 

 

Ciara stuns at the White House State Dinner

For a while now rumors circulated whether Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was dating our very own Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum singer-model-actress Ciara.

All doubt was erased when the “I Bet” singer wowed in a stunning champagne colored custom Walter Mendez dress while attending this Tuesday, April 28th State Dinner at the White House in honor of the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe.

This was the first time the two appeared in public together after being coy about their relationship. Wilson had teased that he would take his grandmother, then said he’d take them both but in the end, he told reporters grandmom was “back at home in Virginia.”

Future who? Oh yeah, her ex and father to her son, Future Zahir Wilburn, who she gave birth to last May. And way to go Ciara on bouncing back!

Back to the look! I think it was the perfect way she arched her back and looked so statuesque or maybe the flawless nude make up and  perfect sleek “snatched to the gawds” hair.

Not sure, but its an A++.

Oh yeah and of course, First Lady Michelle Obama looked fab wearing Japanese designer Tadishi Shoji
