Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin Is About to Be a Dad!

Now that Alex Ovechkin has won his first Stanley Cup after over a decade playing for the Washington Capitals, he will soon be able to check “dad” off on his list of accomplishments.

His wife Anastasia Shubskaya, a former model, shared the news on her Instagram page hours after her husband and his team clinched the win against the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

“We did it,” she wrote in Russian alongside a photo of herself standing next to her husband, cradling her baby bump while Ovechkin, 32, proudly displays the huge cup.

“My hero,” she added after tacking on three strong-arm emojis and the hashtags, “#stanleycup,” “#letsgocaps” and “#wedidit.”

A rep for Ovechkin confirmed to PEOPLE mag that the couple are expecting a baby together. The couple met when he was 25 and she was just 14 years old, according to a Russian gossip site. They wed in 2016 in a very low key private ceremony.

That site also quoted her as saying she gave up her modeling career to stay by her husband’s side.

“I found a love at an early age and I don’t have to earn my living, – said the girl – I was studying to become a producer, but here, I just can not develop my skills… If I fly to Los Angeles – my husband will be left alone. The wife should be at her husband’s side”.

Okay now. Congrats!

Monica Brown is Our 2018 Posh Style Mom Icon!

It’s been a minute since we proclaimed a celebrity mom as a fashion style icon. After stalking Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum singer Monica Brown’s Instagram page and various presses sightings of the fabulous singer, the editors at Bellyitch have determined that the mom to stylish three is deserving to be our 2018 honoree!

For those unfamiliar, this recognition is given to a celebrity mom, usually one who has more than one child, who also has displayed effortless style, not necessarily created by a stylist, who inspires others and Monica is it!

We love the R&B recording artist’s  Instagram posts which are reminiscent of what you’d  see on any “it” Fashion Grammer or Style Blogger’s feed.

Monica’s fashion aesthetic consists of lots of bold colors, thigh high boots and chic dusters. She isn’t afraid to switch up her hair color from crimson, to pitch black to platinum. The mom of three, including 4-year old daughter Laiyah, 9-year old son Romelo and 12-year son Rocko,  has worn down her hair bone straight, in a croute pixie cut or intertwined in waist-length faux locs.

Her page is bright and totally themed out, similar to other influencers out there! See it HERE!

Ms. Brown can do no wrong in our book. The Atlanta-based philanthropist is married to NBA player Shannon Brown since 2010 when the two wed in a secret ceremony. Monica is also step mom to Shannon’s son Shannon Brown, Jr. from a previous relationship. Laiyah is the couple’s only child together as Rocko and Romelo’s dad is Monica’s ex, actor and rapper Rodney Hill, Jr also known as Rocko

The last time we named someone this honor was 2017 and it was given to philanthropist and end ex model Helen Lasichanh, Pharrell’s wife. Before her, the honor was given to Kourtney Kardashian in 2015. Before her, in 2014, Jennifer Hudson, who was the fourth mom to a single child to get the award. Before her, P!nk got it in 2012. And former First Lady Michelle Obama was dubbed an icon in 2011. Other designees include, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Kelly RipaVictoria BeckhamTichina Arnold and  Christina Milian.

Here is a quick rundown of some of ourm fave looks Monica has rocked over the years as shared in her super fly Insta!

Cory and Tia got engaged in 2006, married two years later and welcomed son Cree in 2011, before her sister Tamera had her first child, and was still a newly wed.

We know Tamera gave birth to children, 4-year old Aden John Tanner and 2-year old Ariah Talea, with husband, FOX News Correspondent Adam Housley while Tia, presumably was trying to expand her family as well.

As far back as 2013, Tia has expressed interest in having a second baby. “It’s something that we’re talking about on a daily basis, so…we’ll see!” she told E! News at the time.

It’s been a long time coming and perhaps she will share some of her journey later with the public… or not! We’re not entitled to know. (smile)

Congrats! We are so thrilled and happy for this news! Both are our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.
