Ayesha Curry Defends Why She Puts Her Marriage Ahead of The Kids {Video}

Ayesha Curry is catching a lot of flak these days for saying in a recent interview that she puts her marriage ahead of her children.

Curry told Hello Giggles:

“Because when you become a parent, you want to put your kids first, and we do, but we do it second to our relationship. Because ultimately, when our relationship is good, the kids are happy and they’re thriving and our family life is good. We have to put that into perspective and realize that it’s not us being selfish, it’s making sure we set a strong foundation.”

The comment caused a lot of stir and controversy among viewers and audiences, especially on social media.

Curry clarified her comments in a recent interview with E! News.

“I said in an interview that we put our marriage first and I think it’s caused a little bit of an uproar,” she told the entertainment channel. “But of course we take care of our children and we love our children and we nurture them.”

She added that her marriage needs to thrive so they can be there for their kids.

“Where is the epicenter of your home?” the Ayesha’s Home Cooking TV host adds. “Where is the hub and that starts with our marriage and relationship and I feel like when we make sure that is good first, we’ll make sure our kids are thriving and happy.”

The mom to 6-month old son Canon, and daughters, 3-year old Ryan and 6-year old Riley is not the only public figure to face major backlash for such a stance.

Back in 2005, author Ayelet Waldman was looked at critically also when she penned a piece in the New York Times explaining how she loved her husband —  author Michael Chabon — more than their children.

Despite the criticism, however, the practice of focusing on your marriage first is something many psychologists and marriage therapists approve of, as a healthy relationship sets a good example for kids.

Marvel Stars Reflect On Founder and Creator Stan Lee’s Passing

Every parent to a fan of superhero comics, television series and movies should know a child’s favorite character and probably have a few of their own from childhood and today, the comic universe lost a pioneer and father figure in Marvel creator Stan Lee who died today at the age of 95.

Today, several of the celebrity women whose pregnancies we’ve covered in this blog left words of salute to the great Stan Lee who is recently famous for making obscure cameos in Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and films.

I caught the latest when he played a fellow gambler in The Black Panther release. Here is a quick rundown, excerpted from E! News roundup, of what our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums had to say about Lee’s passing and what he meant to them as actors.

Halle Berry– “RIP, Stan Lee. Thank you for sharing your incredible vision with us. We are eternally grateful to you and would not be the same without it,” tweeted Berry, who played Storm in three X-Men movies. “I am so honored to have played a part in your world and will forever look back on the opportunity

Scarlett Johansson

“The galaxy just gained another Dog Star,” the actress, who plays Black Widow in multiple films, told E! News in a statement. “Thankful everyday to be a small part of Stan’s universe. He was a legendary visionary and a true artist.”

Zoe Saldana

“Today we lost one of the greats. Stan Lee, you were an inspiration and superhero to us all,” the actress, who played Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for contributing so much- and giving us all something to aspire to!”

Evangeline Lily

Stan…more than a master of stories, you always seemed like a master of living,” the star of Ant-Man and the Wasp wrote on Instagram. “I will look to you for inspiration for the rest of my life. You live on. xoxo Your Wasp.”

Jessica Alba

Taking a moment to thank the great Stan Lee for his kindness,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “It was a huge honor to be part of your universe. The experience I had on The Fantastic Four playing Sue Storm/Invisible Woman was so meaningful as a young actress and made a huge impact on me. We will miss you, Stan Lee.”If you'd like to know more insider tips, want a critique of a site you've created or if you are interested in starting a blog or website yourself but do not have the time, patience, bandwidth, know-how or ability to get it done, let me set it up for you and train you on how to keep it going with my "Do-It-For" you consulting service, Visit my Personal Consulting Site and Book a spot today! 

Cardi B Talks Postpartum Depression, Launching Fashion Nova Line

Tonight on E! News, rapper Cardi B sits down to talk about an upcoming fashion collaboration with Fashion Nova which launches on November 15.

She also chats a bit about experiencing postpartum blues and warns expecting moms or future moms that postpartum depression and other hormones or mental health-related conditions could result after they give birth.

“There is no way I could get postpartum [depression] right now,” the Bodak Yellow singer shares. “My life is great right now. I have money. I have a baby. Everything is good in my marriage. There’s no way.”

Then she talks about being hit with emotions from left field, adding: “Out of nowhere, you just feeling so vulnerable, and sad and overprotective, and you just need a lot of love and hugs.”

About the collaboration with the LA-based fast fashion bodycon clothing line which markets almost exclusively among celebrity and other online influencers:

“They are always loyal to me. It’s like a friendship now,” she said of the brand that the Business of Fashion websites states churns out 1,000 new items a week. “I’m also really proud of them. Their brand has sold so much, and I have sold so much at the same time and it’s like, ‘Yay, we did it!’ We both did it at the same time.”

According to a recent Piper Jaffray survey, Fashion Nova was the sixth most popular e-commerce site among upper-income teens, beating out brands including Forever 21, Lululemon and Adidas.

Rashida Jones Gave Birth to Her First Child and You Didn’t Even Know she Was Pregnant



Surprise! Rashida Jones is a new mom.

The Angie Tribeca actress secretly gave birth to her first child on August 22 in Los Angeles, E! News has learned. E! News has also exclusively learned the star welcomed a baby boy named Isaiah Jones Koenig.

This is the first child for Jones and her longtime beau, musician Ezra Koenig. Jones has not publicly confirmed the news. E! News has reached out to the star’s rep for comment.

The ultra private pair seemed to confirm the romance rumors when they stepped out together at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017.

On the subject of motherhood, Jones previously told The Guardian in 2014, “I’m happy, but the fact that I’m not married and don’t have kids—it’s taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don’t feel like I’m some sort of loser.”

The 42-year-old actress, writer and producer, who was once engaged to musician Mark Ronson, also opened up to E! News about her outlook on marriage back in 2011.

“Maybe never?” she said with a laugh when we asked when she would ever wed.

“Marriage doesn’t really buy you anything. I mean, Chris Messina, who is my co-star in this movie, is with my very close friend [producer Jennifer Todd]. They’re not married, but they have two kids and they’re wildly happy.”

Wishing the famous new mama her own wild happiness with her little one. Congratulations to the new family of three!

Us Weekly was first to report the baby news.

Tia Mowry On Motherhood After 40: No Time For Mess

Life just keeps getting better for Tia Mowry.

In addition to being a proud mom to two kids with husband Cory Hardrict, the Hollywood actress celebrated a major birthday last month.

How does it feel turning 40 in Hollywood? Not bad at all according to the Sister, Sister star.

“I’m just going to be really honest with you. Now that I’m 40, I don’t have time for mess anymore,” she shared with E! News’ Justin Sylvester exclusively. “I know what I want. I know what I’m going after. I have a small group of friends because when you’re younger, it’s all about popularity but that doesn’t matter for me now. It’s about quality vs. quantity.”

Tia continued, “I feel happy in my skin. I feel confident and I feel like as you get older, you learn more about who you are and you embrace who you are and just go with the flow of life and go with the punches.”

That’s not to say going from one to two kids is a walk in the park. While supporting her partnership with Office Depot, Tia was quick to admit that it’s been an adjustment ever since her daughter Cairo Tiahna arrived in May.

“You know what I’m doing? Usually, I would say with just one kid, I’m taking one day at a time. But with two kids, I’m taking two steps at a time. I’m only looking as far as my two feet can go,” she confessed. “I can’t get so far ahead of myself or I’ll get really, really overwhelmed. But you know what they say? It’s harder to go from one to two as opposed to two to three but now I get it.”

For the time being, Tia is focused on getting her seven-year-old son Cree Taylor  ready for school again. In just a matter of weeks, he’ll be entering second grade with plenty of the best school supplies from Office Depot.

“It’s all about making back to school fun and entertaining and hopefully that will translate into them making learning fun,” Tia explained to us while showcasing some of her favorite items from the store.

And in between getting ready for the school bell to ring, Tia is reminding fellow moms that there’s no rush to get back into your best shape after kids.

Instead of running to the gym after her daughter’s May arrival, Tia has learned to simply go at your own pace.

“I’m just taking my time and I’m also allowing women out there that you don’t necessarily have to go back to yourself right away. It took you almost 10 months or a year to grow a baby. And it’s going to take time for you to get back to yourself,” she shared. “Do I think it’s important to get back to yourself? Yes, I think it’s very important to get back to feeling great, get back to feeling like you were before having a baby but I’m not so fixated on having my abs back and all that kind of stuff. I’m just taking my time.”

Victoria Secret Model Chanel Iman and NFL Hubby Sterling Shepard Are Expecting First Child

Chanel Iman is celebrating this Mother’s Day as a mama-to-be!

The Victoria’s Secret Angel is expecting her first child with New York Giants‘ Sterling Shepard.

“Our focus has always been on love and family and we look forward to instilling these qualities in our little one,” Chanel and Sterling exclusively told E! News. “We are truly blessed!”

The model shared the news on social media on Sunday just in time for Mother’s Day. “Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you,” she captioned a photo of herself baring her baby bump. “As I approach motherhood I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and mommies to be.”

As E! News previously reported, the couple wed on March 3 in front of family and friends in a romantic ceremony following a whirlwind four month engagement.

The bride, who was dressed in head-to-toe white while walking down the aisle, flowers in-hand, appeared to be on cloud-nine while saying her I do’s. So happy, in fact, that there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

Back in December, the 25-year-old wide receiver popped to the question with a stunning rose gold sparkler on Iman’s 27th birthday. She later posted a photo to her Instagram account sharing the news.

“A night full of tears of happiness. I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you @sterl_shep3 you are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything!” she wrote at the time. “Can’t wait to be your Mrs.”

After meeting at Victor Cruz‘s birthday party in November 2016, the supermodel began dating the NFL star.

“When I first met him, he was in a suit and looked so sharp,” she revealed to People in August. Shepard added, “I walked up to her and bought her a drink and it was over after that.”

Congrats to the gorgeous couple on their growing family!

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Name Their Daughter, ‘True’

True Thompson is the newest Kardashian/Jenner baby.

Khloe Kardashian announced Monday that she and her estranged beau Tristan Thompson have chosen to name their first daughter together, True, going with a supremely unique and celebrity-ish name.

“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,” she wrote on social media. “Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”

With cousins named North, West, Saint, Stormi, Dream and Reign, what would one expect? I like True! It has much character, to me.

According to insiders, Khloe is focusing on being mom and less on any controversy or personal turmoil between herself and Tristan.

“Khloe is mesmerized and completely in love with the baby,” a source told E! News. “That’s all she’s thinking about is caring for the baby and being positive.”

Things are still up in the air regarding her personal relationship with True’s dad.

“She hasn’t made any decisions on what she’s going to do regarding Tristan,” the insider explained. “She is overcome with emotion and can’t think about anything other than the baby right now.”

Mom Kris Jenner is in Cleveland helping her daughter out with the first weeks. Kris was also there to help Khloe labor.

“Everyone is focused on helping Khloe and staying positive at this time,” a source previously said. “They want her to be comfortable and not stressed at all. They are focusing on the baby and crying a lot of happy tears at the moment.”

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!
