Kim Kardashian and Ciara do newborn shopping (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

We missed this but wanted to share some pics of Ciara and Kim Kardashian coming out of a Bel Bambini store last month. CiCi and Kim have been friends for several years and the Body Party singer has appeared on several episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

This outing is also ripe for mom to 7-month old daughter North with Kanye West.  Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney, who has a one-year old daughter Penelope and 3-year old son Mason, are said to be designing a line of baby clothes. 

We have featured the store in the past as THE destination for pregnant celebrities and given this week’s revelation from Ciara’s fiance Future about his woman’s obsessive nesting and baby-prepping, it’s appropriate to share today even though we’ve changed blog policy to avoid featuring images taken by dangerous stalking unwilling photography subjects. 
Just this once! Enjoy!

Future isn’t first to accidentally reveal baby’s gender- History of Celebrity Slip Ups!

Poor Ciara!
She told People magazine that she didn’t want to reveal the gender of her baby.
“I do know the sex of my baby, but again I want to keep that special as well,” she told the magazine. 
But sadly that’s easier said than done when your partner has a tough time not revealing the gender to interviewers during media appearances.
The Body Party singer’s  fiance, hip hip artist Future, was interviewing with Tim Westwood when he repeatedly referred to the baby as “he” and “him”.

“The baby listening to music already now,” he said. “She [Ciara] sent me a video while I was over here with the headphones on her stomach. ‘The baby just listened to ‘Turn on the Lights,’ [Ciara said] ‘The version with me and you’. And I said you got to play the ‘anytime’ version  for him. Let him hear that. See how he kick. She played it for him and he started kicking like crazy.”

He also said that they have a baby name, that Ciara has “been shopping” for the baby and clearing out of closets and the guest room for the baby’s stuff.

See the video here and the banter about the baby starts at 9:23:

Eventually the “Turn on the Lights”  recording-artist told Westwood, who had previously asked about the gender, “see you got the sex out of me and you didn’t even know it.”
Future tried to refer to the baby as a “she” later and suggest it may be a girl but too late.

Today, most sites are reporting that Ciara is having a baby boy but do we really know? “You can’t believe the blogs,” Future said. “They done told so many lies on me.”

hmmm. 
Recall early in 2013 when Kristen Bell was pregnant, people assumed she was having a boy when she told Ellen that her fiance Dax Shepard would soon get a “tiny buddy” to go “off roading” with. 
We know that was wrong! We figured it out after photos of her baby shower showed lots of pink and guests going to her baby shower bearing gifts wrapped in pink.
She eventually gave birth to a daughter, Lincoln. 
Baby showers are generally when the public gets a clue of a celebrity baby’s gender.

Instagram photos of balloons spelling out “boy” at Rachel Zoe‘s shower in 2013 revealed that she was having a baby boy even though the reality TV star and designer had previously said she would not share the gender with the public before the baby’s birth.

In 2011, paparazzi shot January Jones shopping for blue colored clothing at a local Target. 


Also that year, Jessica Simpson accidentally told US Weekly that she was having a boy after saying she wanted to keep the gender private.
My kid’s going to think I’m pretty cool!” she told the magazine ” My kid’s going to think I’m pretty cool! This is a cool thing to welcome him to the world with.”
Keeping the baby’s gender secret if you are a celebrity is a challenge but it can be done. All they have to do is not shop for the baby in public, do interviews or have baby showers. Simple. (smile)

Androgynous Maternity as rocked by Ciara, Beyonce & Kim Kardashian

When Ciara showed up to the 2014 MusicCares Gala in a navy Lanvin mens style pinstripe suit, many scrubbed their chins, cocked their heads and went, “hmmmm.”   Not all were convinced at how fashion forward the look was for maternity wear.

Little did they know she was only channeling the spirit of her fore-mothers who rocked Androgynous maternity before her.

Behold:

Ciara has been wearing androgynous looks this pregnancy like Beyonce & Kim Kardashian did before her.

Meanwhile, the first openly gay woman athlete to sign a Nike modeling contract, WNBA player Brittney Griner was signed to model men’s apparel.
And as an ESPN.com story about the deal noted: 

Androgynous models are coveted in high-end fashion, but the trend toward gender-neutral clothing has only just begun to reach the sports world, with NBA stars Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade blurring the lines in their tight jeans and fitted sweaters. No sports apparel company has taken it a step further and expressly targeted the gender-fluid crowd — and whether Nike is willing to ride the edge with Griner remains to be seen. “We can’t get into specifics,” says Nike spokesman Brian Strong, “but it’s safe to say we jumped at the opportunity to work with her because she breaks the mold.

The former Baylor women’s player and current Phoenix Mercury star won the ESPY award for best female athlete in 2011 and rocked the red carpet in men’s wear the following two years.

The era of androgyny has been a thing for a while now, but is mos def an “in” thing again.

Ciara’s TLC “CrazySexyCool” Tribute- Baby Bump Style

R&B Pop songstress and mom-to-be Ciara recently took to her Instagram account to share a “Crazy. Sexy. Cool” photo tribute to fellow Atlanta natives TLC. The top-selling girl group’s chart topping hit sophomore album featured members T-Boz, the late Left Eye and Chill above their alter ego personalities. [Edited to add: Another site Madame Noire contends this was a tribute to Digable Planet’s “Cool Like That” song because CiCi captions the photos lyrics from the chorus form that song “I’m cool like that. I ‘m Peace Like That, I Love Like That, I’m Out.” Err. That works too! ha!]

She nailed it!

The “Body Party” singer and her fiance hip hop star Future are expecting their first child later this year.

She announced the pregnancy officially this January on the ABC daytime panel talk show The View after much being shrouded in internet buzz and speculation that she was preggers.

It is her first child. He has children from previous relationships.

The Body Party singer and Future got engaged last October. The Atlanta-based recording artist proposed to the Ciara during a special birthday dinner for the 28-year-old pop star. Future has three kids from previous relationships.
