June Ambrose

Singer actress LeToya Luckett and her husband Tommicus Walker are expecting to welcome their second child together any day now.

The former Destiny’s Child group member spoke to celebrity stylist June Ambrose about being pregnant during the COVID pandemic.

“The energy of the home is so important because we’re all cooped up in here together, the emotions are running wild, everybody wants to make a break for it,” Luckett shared over the hour long ITV session. “And then me, I’m trying to prepare to bring a life into the world,” the celebrity mom added. “I’m also thinking about career stuff, and then just being a new mom.”

She talked about having to go to doctor’s appointments alone because of hospital restrictions regarding the novel coronavirus.

“The doctor’s appointments are weird,” LeToya, who stars in Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN TV show Greenleaf, admitted. “I’m there by myself,” the celebrity mom said. “I’m doing sonograms by myself. You can’t have anyone with you. My husband can’t come with me.”

The couple welcomed their first child together  daughter Gianna Iman in January 2019.

She is hopeful and happy that the stay home orders have allowed her to spend more time with her family, musing: ““I can finally be still and enjoy my family, enjoy my babies, enjoy the growing baby inside of me.”

Luckett is also step mom to Walker’s 7-year old daughter Madison from a previous relationship.

British TV Host Rochelle Humes’s Hosting Gig Forced Pregnancy News Ouster

rochelle-humes-and-marvin

It turns out that our guesses were right that second-time mom-to-be Rochelle Humes is in her second trimester. The British girl band member who also starred in a one-season E! TV reality TV show, Chasing the Saturdays,  told the audience during a taping of the ITV show Loose Women that she was “surprised” her friends kept her pregnancy a secret.

Her husband, Marvin Humes, a former boy band member  of the British group JLS and currently a Capital FM DJ said last week that she was close to six months pregnant

They would have waited longer but a TV gig thwarted that plan.

She had to go public with her news because she and Marvin were part of the hosting team for BBC charity telethon ‘Children In Need’ , the Daily Mirror reports, and her stylist told her that she wouldn’t be able to hide her bump on television.

“It’s amazing, [Rochelle] is doing so well and she’s a real trooper. She’s nearly six months – she’s only a week away from being six months,” Marvin told  Daily Mail, Marvin. “She looks great and we’re so lucky we’re having a second child,” Marvin added. “We’re really, really excited.”

The couple are parents to 3-year old daughter Alaia-Mai and said they will not find out the baby’s sex until it is born.

“We thought it would be nice to keep it a surprise,” Marvin revealed. “We’re going to wait and see.”

Rochelle, who is a TV host of the British show The Next Great Magician almost found out the news when a psychic to the stars, including to Kim Kardashian West, wrote down the baby’s gender on a card and placed it in an envelope. The host of the show offered to reveal it but Rochelle passed because she suspected the psychic would be right.

Certainly, that would ruin the whole ‘wait and see’ thing for sure.
