I pray for my daughter to see the beauty in this world and the goodness in people. Show her how to raise her head in confidence, yet lower it with humility before You. Help her to be a life long learner. May she always gain knowledge, grow in understanding, and find wisdom. Please God, help her to close her eyes in restful slumber and open them in appreciation of Your glorious morning light.

Amen 🎀🌸💞 ” then adding photo, hair, and styling credits.

LeToya has admitted she and Tommicus are “so blessed” to be expecting a child together, and she just wants to have a “healthy baby”.

She told Essence: “We are over the moon and overjoyed by this news.

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!

Kelly RowlandGets Really Raw in her New Book About Pregnancy

whoa-baby

So actress and TV cooking show host Tia Mowry  wrote “Oh Baby“. Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels penned “Yeah Baby“.  The new celebrity to come out with a book about pregnancy for the first time is multi-Grammy winning artist Kelly Rowland.

Her book, “Whoa, Baby!: A Guide for New Moms Who Feel Overwhelmed and Freaked Out (and Wonder What the #*$& Just Happened)” written with her OB/GYN of 10 years Dr. Tristan Bickman went on sale on Tuesday, April 11.

In it, Rowland shares her candid reactions to pregnancy and motherhood; and dealing with all the surprises that you’re never prepared for until you experience it first hand, even if you read about it before in a book.

The Voice Australia coach discussed the book with USA Today and how she too was duped by the perfect magazine covers with the facade celebs who were fit and trim weeks after giving birth.

The former Destiny’s Child band member wrote: “I just saw a cover that I did for Shape and then I’m looking in the mirror going, ‘Oh, my god this is not the same body. How did this happen?’ And, I had to just keep reminding myself that, ‘You had a baby, Kel.’ But I was hard on myself. I really was.”

And in the interview as with the book, the mom to 2-year old son Titan doesn’t hold back. Nothing’s off the table. Incontinence, vaginal tearing, check! and check!

In the book, she referred to herself looking at her lady parts in the mirror after giving birth”the world’s worst idea!”

Your vajayjay does not look the same for a very long time,” she told openly shared, noting that a friend told her that her husband wouldn’t care. “‘But, I care about it.’ We go to get it all done up and trimmed and waxed and this and that and it’s all swollen and crazy and you’re just wondering what just happened?”

It’s a very raw discussion in the book, it seems. She also talks mom guilt and more. Check out the full interview HERE!

‘Power’s Naturi Naughton is Expecting Her First Child

img_3852

Singer and Actress Naturi Naughton was in middle of shooting the fourth season of her hit STARZ show Power when she discovered that she and boyfriend Ben were expecting their first child.

The original member of the now-disbanded girl group 3LW exclusively told PEOPLE that  as soon as she shared the news with the cast and crew, they went into protection mode.

“They’ve been really good at keeping it on the low, but they’re also super excited,” she says. “Omari [Hardwick], who plays my husband, we have kids on the show and he’s like, ‘Now you get to be experiencing motherhood in real life!’ Everyone’s been really supportive.”

Naughton, who is also known  for her standout role as “Lil Kim” in the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious, said she’s been having a good pregnancy so far.

“It’s been a little surreal, but I feel really good, healthy and strong,” she told the magazine.“I feel like being pregnant and entering this new stage has made me stronger and more excited about life in general. Everything seems so much more purposeful.”

The production crew had to be creative about concealing her bump since a pregnancy wasn’t in the script.

“I had maternity jeans they ordered for me, and I do a lot of tops that are peplum-style,” says the New Jersey native who got her start singing in the same church Whitney Houston sang at in her youth. “I was amazed at how un-pregnant I could look.”

She also talked about being a healthy eater but giving into pregnancy cravings.

“I love kale, I love strawberries and pineapples, but I’m not proud of this … I’ve been eating Cup Noodles. I really want salty, spicy things, and Cup Noodles has been really awesome. I haven’t had one since college!”

After being a platinum selling artist, touring alongside Destiny’s Child, Dream, Nelly, Eve, and Jessica Simpson, and a solo artist, and having a a stage role on the Tony-award winning play “Hairspray“,  roles on Mad Men and the movie Fame a reoccurring role on The Client List opposing Jennifer Love Hewitt, Naughton is prepping for a whole new challenge when her baby arrives in July.

“It’ll just be a great summer to enjoy motherhood and this journey to motherhood,” said Naughton, who is steep in picking out nursery colors and nesting. “It’s a really amazing responsibility, but it’s such a blessing and that to me is worth more than anything I can imagine.”

Godspeed, mama!

Bump Watch: Kelly Rowland shares prenatal Yoga bump photo

Newly wed Kelly Rowland shared a photo of herself yesterday doing prenatal Yoga on her instagram account. The Motivation singer and former Destiny’s Child band member and her husband, music manager Tim Witherspoon, married this May in an intimate ceremony in Costa Rica on May 10.
She announced her pregnancy on June 10 by sharing a photo of her husband’s black Air Jordan high top sneakers near a pair of tiny sneakers, with the caption, “I’ll be stunting like my daddy.” It could be a hint that the songstress, who is currently working on Pepsi‘s Beats of the Beautiful Game World Cup album, is having a baby boy. Who knows as baby girls wear Jordans too.
We wonder if Beyonce will pay her back for slipping up and accidentally sharing the gender of Bey’s first child during in interview in 2011. Ha! 
Speaking of which, some are declaring Rowland’s share as a reaction to all the conspiracy theorists who still do not believe Beyonce was actually pregnant with her first child and used a surrogate and a fake baby bump. What can we say? Haters are gonna hate.
