Our Celebrity ‘Bumpwatch’ Mom of The Year Is…

celeb-mom-of-year

In year’s past, we’ve recognized the celebrities that we followed most and we’ve even awarded superlatives. This year, while reviewing a year’s worth of posts, we are prepared to award the Bellyitch Bumpwatch Celebrity Mom-to-Be of the Year.

The honor goes to…. The Over 40 Celebrity!

Several stars including Savannah Guthrie, 45, Tyra Banks (via surrogate) 43, Lisa Ling, 43, Tameka “Tiny” Cottles 40, Eva Mendes, 42, Keri Russell, 40, Alanis Morissette, 42 and Janet Jackson, 50 welcomed or announced a pregnancy this year.

Why do they deserve special recognition over the 20 and 30-something millennial celebrities who also gave birth in 2016, you ask?

As women age, it becomes even more challenging to conceive without medical intervention and to carry a baby to term. Therefore, when it happens, there is even more reason to celebrate given the odds and hurdles that must be overcome to achieve success.

Gestational carrier, surrogacy, adoption and other medical methods like IVF and donor egg have made it possible for some. A few have been successful without medical assistance. Either way, our hats off to those who balanced career and family and still had the time, ability and inclination to want to welcome a new addition in 2016.

You guys are the real MVP!

over 40

And more veteran moms over 40 have been keeping up and showing out the younger ones by showing off super fit bods. Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Kelly RipaMel B. and Halle Berry shared photos of themselves in social media with super toned and ripped physiques.

Granted, we know celebrity women have access to personal chefs, trainers and a team of assistants to help them out with their children so they can hit the gym regularly and often. Also, they work in an industry where it is essential for them to have their bodies snatched back into fit and trim shape, but it still takes harder work and more dedication to stay fit when your metabolism slows and it gets harder to shed pounds and keep it off.

Check out some other celeb over 40 women with bad bods at Pop Sugar here!

 

Look Back at the 2016 Tony Awards Red Carpet Moments

tony awards

This Sunday’s 70th Annual Tony Awards was overshadowed a bit by the news of the horrific shooting inside a nightclub in Orlando Florida the night before it was held at The Beacon Theatre on June 12, 2016 in New York City. Several presenters and award recipients acknowledged the victims as did the host Late Night TV’s James Corden. 

The styles on the red carpet were super glam yet not too over the top. Fitting for the somber’ish mood. We spotted our Bumpwatch alum Jane Kracowski perform a number with her co-star from the play ‘She Loves Me’. Other “Bellyitch Bumpwatch” alums attending the event that we also saw on the red carpet included singer Thalia, models Liya Kebede and Jourdan Dunn  and actresses Keri Russell and Claire Danes.
