teen choice 2016

Tonight was the 2016 Teen Choice Awards at The Forum on Sunday,July 31, 2016 in Inglewood, California.

We spotted Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Jessica Alba in a black and sheer David Koma ensemble (Shoulder Net crop top and High Waist Trousers) and carrying a cute black M2malletier clutch. She was a presenter during the show.

Also wearing black was Fuller House Jodi Sweetin who we followed when she was last expecting back in 2010. Love her crown braid and those funky wrap around espadrilles are hotness.

Another blog fave and star of Fuller House, Candace Cameron Bure also attended in a cute metallic and black shorts jumper with sexy strappy heels as did one other Bellyitch alum Crystal Renay.

She walked the green carpet with her first child with husband singer-songwriter-producer Ne-Yo in tow. Little  Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr, named after his dad looked mad sleepy but was hanging in their like a champ. Maybe he made it long enough to watch dad perform on stage.

More babies for Kanye West as his G.O.O.D .Music label artist, R&B singer Teyana Taylor welcomed her first child, a daughter early, this Wednesday, December 16…and she was delivered by her finance Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert!

The two have been dating since last year and Shumpert announced on his social media Instagram account that their daughter was expected to arrive on January 16, 2016.

“I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with.” Shumpert captioned a reposted photo of Taylor’s sonogram she shared on her page. “Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world (on) ‘1.16.16.’… I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family!…I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up… she’s already daddy’s little girl!!!”

But little Imani wasn’t waiting.

Taylor detailed the early arrival and bathroom birth story in a photo of the newborn cradled in Shumpert’s arms:

On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world.

She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her head…it took two ten count pushes with my fiancé playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands!

Eyes full of tears and barely able to speak to the emergency operator @imanshumpert tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later. She opened her eyes right away, gazed into mine and never cried!

He handed her to me wrapped in our bath towel and wiped her face for me to see what LOVE really is. She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched.

Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you. #MeetTheParents we love you baby girl?????

Wow! Congrats! The two got engaged 5 weeks ago.

And I totally missed this, but Taylor shared some pretty creative Maternity Portraits with her fans and followers in recent weeks.

Back to School: Dad Creates Awesome Product for Homesick First Year College Coeds

nurserywemontage

Continuing in our trend of highlighting parent inventors and creators, we’re showcasing another innovator :

James Oliver, Jr, the dad Blogger from trepLifeDad,  spends some of his times balancing family life with his wife and brand new twins and catapulting a StartUp venture to the next level.

The Brooklyn native’s company WeMontage is the homesickness cure for your first year college kid who needs vibrant reminders of home and family to keep spirits lifted during long spans of time away from the comforts of home and close family.

Oliver put his accounting degree from Morehouse College and MBA from UNC-Chapel Hill to good use after becoming inspired by a HGTV episode that featured an interior designer decorating a wall with photos using a DIY method.

He graduated from a prestigious tech accelerator program, gener8tor, and from there raised capital to launch and fund the company.

Currently, WeMontage is the only website that allows users to upload their favorite photos, create a custom photo collage, and print them out onto large, removable wallpaper with adhesive backing.

And considering that universities and landlords usually do not allow college dorm rooms  or rental apartment units to have too many holes in the walls, WeMontage’s removable adhesives are perfect!

Besides curing ills of that homesick Freshmen, the decorative walls are also a very unique way to decorate one wall of your new baby’s nursery or even an older child’s play room.

Recreate nostalgic memories from your wedding, graduation or other precious life moment in an office den, man cave or other work or play room; or in a campus locker room, gym or other area.

And there are various options to cover smaller areas as well. Very cool.

To create beautiful wall montages, all you need is a straight edge. Oliver recommends having a friend help with installation for larger spaces, but guarantees that the entire process would take under 15 minutes.

Simply, determine what space you want the enlarged images to go, while taking into consideration other colors and decorative elements of the room. The final product is delivered to your door on a canvas-like paper with a matte finish can be attached and removed from flat walls and textured surfaces without causing damage.

And there is social consciousness to Oliver’s company as well. WeMontage recently donated 100 photo montages to college freshmen to fight homesickness.

Nice!

Oliver is working on raising more awareness of his fabulous product and utilizes a team of two part time developers and a publicist to help him get the word out. He was recently featured as Dad of the Week on The Mom’s radio show on Sirius/XM and is about to launch a project with BlogHer and SheKnows following his very moving reading of his Voices of the Year article about his son during this year’s BlogHer conference.

Good stuff.

If you’d like to give it a try for free, head on over to WeMontage and sign up and if you eventually purchase, you get 30% off the product thru next Thursday, August 13th if you use our code “bellyitch30”!

Please send us a photo to see your project once up to contact (at)bellyitchblog.com! Thanks!

MLK Day: Celeb moms social media share about Dr. King

Some of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms of the past few years took to social media this morning to pay homage and send out tweets about Martin Luther King, Jr‘s holiday in the United States today. It’s a federal holiday set aside to pay homage to the birth of a man who led the Civil Rights Movement and encouraged the US government to move towards equality for all its citizens in all regions of the country, regardless of race. He also sparked the movement by empowering people to take peaceful action, through boycotts and marches, to effectuate change.

Today, some who took time to remind their millions of followers of King and his dream, include:
