There was plenty of bumping around at this year’s 2019 Country Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
(From left to right in the above graphic)
First-time mom-to-be and recipient of the most nominations of the night, Maren Morris, posed on the red carpet with her husband Ryan Hurd in a baby blue (for the boy she’s carrying maybe) off the shoulder blouse with matching high-waisted floor-length skirt by Honayda and heels by Casadei. Hurd looked dapper in a Dolce & Gabbana suit, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Cartier watch and Stephen Webster cufflinks.
Morris walked away with Album of the Year for “GIRL”.
“Best Shot” country singer Jimmie Allen cradled the belly of his pregnant fiance Alexis Gale and Thomas Rhett and his pregnant wife Lauren Akins bumped it up with their daughters, 4-year old Willa and 2-year old Ada.
Stunning host Carrie Underwood looked exquisite in all of her looks including her red carpet dress she posed in with her Canadian ice hockey star hubby Mike Fischer: a sparkling Elie Madi gown featuring a slim sheer over skirt and a tulle cape and train paired with Jimmy Choo heels, Jared Lehr earrings and rings from Loree Rodkin and Maxior.
Other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums on the carpet included:
Pink (Julea Domani by Zeena Zaki) and family showed up and showed out.
As did singer Jessie James Deckerin Materiel with Tamara Mellon shoes with her husband, former NFL quarterback Eric Decker.
And Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles made a statement with her Christian Siriano pantsuit and cape, with the words “Play our f*@#in records please and thank you” written on the inside by artist Alice Mizrachi. Read about the reason behind the look here!
Second-time mom-to-be Jessie James Decker channels her preggers celeb fore-mothers in the video for her song, “Flip My Hair”.
In the video, the country singer is flanked by other expecting women with similar sized baby bumps, hair length and texture as Decker’s dancing seductively in black unitards to her very catchy song. I love it!
It reminds me of the late Whitney Houston, Beyonce and Deborah Cox, other singers who each wore black turtleneck looks while about 6-months pregnant in their respective music videos of yesteryear.
Decker, who is married to NFL’sTennessee Titans wide receiver Eric Decker, said she loved the way she felt shooting the video.
“I’ve never felt sexier or more confident than I did during this music video shoot,” the country singer and reality TV show alum captioned a snippet of the video posted on her Instagram account. “I wanted to showcase that no matter where you are at in your life, shape, or size you can exude that confidence and sexuality in your womanhood!”
We saw quite a few haters in the captions to the video who obviously do not appreciate the fact that pregnancy doesn’t stop a woman from feeling sexy or expressing her sensuality.
She looks great and the video is so fun and it looks like they had a great time producing it.
Others criticized her for not having racial diversity among the other women in the video with her.
I don’t know about that.
In fact, I think she needed to have other women who look like her because perhaps the video director was aiming for a look like Beyonce’s in her 2011 Countdown video she did while 6-months pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy.
The monolithic series of Bey in a row like here have a very explicit visual effect:
Decker and her dancers even start in chairs, similar to how Bey ends her video tho no shade because even Mrs. Knowles’ video was accused of being rip off of choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s work. All work is inspired by others, right?
It happens every time a celebrity posts a photo of herself in social media breastfeeding her newborn. It’s country singer and reality TV star Jessie James Decker‘s turn.
After posting this precious photo of herself nursing her son, Eric Decker Jr., on her Instagram account, over 4,000 people have given their opinion on the act. Most of them are breastfeeding advocates though there is also the usual set that accuses her of doing it for pure vanity. You can check out the verbal sparring HERE.
