Toya Wright celebrated the impending arrival of her second child at a baby shower in an Atlanta private residence this past MLK weekend.
It was a reality TV show reunion as some Our blog faves and bumpwatch alums Monica Brown, Monyetta Shaw and Rasheeda attended. Other stars of Atlanta-based shows Shamea Morton from Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of AtlantaQuad Webb-Lunceford from that same network’s Married to Medicine.
The event featured personalized candy apples, candy bar and Rice Krispie treats and more. The theme was “Showering Reign”, a take off of the name she has selected for her daughter, though in one recent post, she referred to her baby as “Reignbeaux“, phonetic spin on Rainbow with a very unique spelling.
Wright also used the occasion to introduce the public to her beau and the baby’s dad Atlanta sports manager Robert “Red” Rushing. Up until this point, she had elected to conceal his identity. Secret’s out now!
If the baby’s name will be Reignbeaux, this will be the second celebrity baby Rainbow in recent years because The Girls Next Dooralum Holly Madison‘s first child is also named Rainbow. Reign is also a bit popular recently among celebrities. Kourtney Kardashian‘s son is named Reign and that is the middle name of Lil Kim’s daughter Royal Reign.
Wright announced her pregnancy last September with a very creative scripted video featuring her daughter Reginae Carter with ex husband rapper Lil Wayne.
Oh and h/t from YBF, we learned that she also had a second shower with her fans. Nice! Here are photos shared by attendees:
Former reality TV star Holly Madison and her husband Pasqualle Rotella welcomed their second child, a son. The Girls of Next Dooralum shared a photo of her newborn grasping her finger late last night on her Instagram account.
The couple married in September 2013, about 5 months after welcoming their first child, Rainbow in March that year. Rotella owns a circus and produces concerts and other entertainment events.
He also announced the news in social media. “First, a five-year-long indictment against me was finally dismissed; then yesterday Holly, Rainbow & I welcomed a healthy 8-pound, 14-ounce baby boy to the family,” he captioned a photo of the baby’s hand in his palm.
“Now I’m holding my beautiful son at the hospital reading amazing birthday wishes from all of you,” the caption also read. “Definitely one of the most memorable weeks of my life! Lots of love to everyone who took the time to post, tag or send me a message online. I’m grateful & touched! We’ll be heading home from the hospital later & I’ll be posting photos of the new baby soon. Thanks ‘n love you ALL!”
Last week, Rotella was given three years probation and a $150,000 fine, rather than serve jail time after striking a plea bargain over accusations of bribery and embezzlement, US Weeklyreports.
Madison had two reality shows after leaving Girls which was about three of Playboy founder Hugh Heffner‘s girlfriends all living and co-existing in the same place. She penned two best sellers about her experiences in the mansion.
Then, this week, brand new mom Anne Hathaway thought she was supporting her Alice: Through the Looking Glass co-star Helena Bonham Carter when she posted on Instagram a lovely photo of the brunette Brit, nicely dress with the caption, “In a world of Kardashians… be a Helena Bonham Carter.”
But within minutes of posting it, the Devil Wears Prada star quickly pulled down the post and replaced it with a photo of the words, “Post removed for unintended shade”. It was too late because the pic quickly gained 100,000 likes by then. Yikes!
The Princess Diaries star added that the diss was really unintentional, “It never occurred to me I was pitting anyone against each other. Not my style. Peace x”.
Holly Madison is expecting her second child, a baby boy this time and on her latest E! Pregnancy Blog post, she shared how she recently discovered that each pregnancy is indeed different. She figured it out because her pregnancy diet and cravings are so vastly different. During her first pregnancy, the former star of The Girls Next Door and Holly’s World on E! said she craved smoothies and healthy stuff, but for this pregnancy, she’s only interested in eating unhealthy stuff and junk food.
Here are both of her “Pregnancy Diets.” “If you can, I would follow the first one!” she pens:
Breakfast 1: Blueberry Green Smoothie: -1 cup water, -1 cup blueberries, -1 cup spinach, 1 banana
Breakfast 2: Escape to Starbucks for an Americano for my maximum daily caffeine allowance and the only thing that doesn’t make me nauseous, a.k.a. a carb, such as a slice of pumpkin bread…which we all know is basically a dessert loaf.
Lunch 1: Organic Kale Salad with oil-free vinaigrette dressing and a bowl of red pepper and tomato soup.
Lunch 2: This is where I make a secret run to a fast food joint, such as Taco Bell, In-n-Out, or the chicken-sandwich-joint-which-shall-not-be-named. Be sure and throw away any evidence before you get back to your house. And drive home with the windows down to get rid of that fast food smell. Who needs the judgment?
Console yourself with the fact that you are taking your daily prenatal vitamin and DHA supplement. For those of you with a sweet tooth, I highly recommend Honest Company’s calcium and vitamin D gummies…they are seriously good!
Snack 1: green smoothie: -1 cup spinach, -1 cup kale, -1 cup water, -1 banana, -2 apples
Snack 2: choke down an organic green juice, preferably while holding your nose. Concentrate on keeping it down by reminding yourself how good this is for the baby.
Dinner 1: Homemade vegan lasagna
Dinner 2: order dairy-free Pinkberry from Postmates
Ha! So there you have it! We think the difference could have to do with the fact she is expecting a child of a different gender this round. Go figure!
