I speculated that perhaps Duchess Meghan of Sussex had given birth at home because she was not captured by photographers leaving her home or arriving.
However, last week, Kensington Palace revealed that the Suits actress, formerly Meghan Markle, gave birth.
Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born at Portland Hospital, a private hospital on Great Portland Street in London, a copy of the baby’s birth certificate revealed.
With the baby overdue and her somewhat advance maternal age at 36, a hospital was probably better in case of an emergency.
Also, I was wrong about the name Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would have given their newest child, a son, born via surrogate last week.
I and other speculators the baby would be named Robert for two reasons. One, Kim showed an image of the name Robert during a Snapchat and during a recent episode of her reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashian a psychic in Bali told Kim and Khloe Kardashian their dad, Robert Kardashian, would be reincarnated in her son.
The couple named the newest arrival Psalm which is a Hebrew word for song and is the name of one of the books in the Bible. A source to E! News told the site that Kanye chose the name “and is a representation of their spirituality.”
The sources explained, “it was a very important to him, and Kim wanted the name to have a significance that held a true representation of their family, so she agreed on the name.”
Not to be outdone was True Thompson in a series of fun videos and pics mom Khloe Kardashian shared of her while she wore a pair of green mirror aviator shades, shamrock barrettes and a $550 pair of Giuseppe Zanotti, Jr
Ok. Halloween was Wednesday but I say until the end of Daylight’s Savings Time, it’s open season for bloggers to share Halloween costumes and their fave costume posts before we launch into Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Holiday season posts.
So…Here is my list of fave celebrity Halloween costume photos featuring their families and children that they shared in social media.
First, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, the celeb women whose pregnancies we’ve featured on this blog:
Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and their son Silas went as the Lego version of Batman, Robyn and Harley Quinn!
I saw an article by the UK Sunsuggesting that Khloe Kardashian cut her carbs to have a small baby. It then talked to an expert who expressed concern that restricting your diet over fears of a big baby could have a negative impact on a pregnancy.
The Sun quoted Lorna Marsh, Associate Editor at BabyCentre, who told Fabulous Online: “It’s sad to hear of an influential celebrity endorsing any dieting in pregnancy, especially as it’s unlikely to affect a baby’s size, which depends on so many factors.”
When I looked into the context of the suggestion, I figured out that Khloe was actually watching her diet reasonably over concern about having to get a C-section which is common with babies that are too large to fit in the birth canal. Khloe said on an episode of her hit E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she wanted to have a vaginal birth like her sisters.
“If I want a donut or cookies I’ll eat them, I’m not depriving myself,” she told her mom, Kris Jenner, who said she wanted to see Khloe eat more. “Everything I’m doing is instructed by my doctor,” adding, “I would love to avoid a C-section if possible, but if my baby turns out to be really big, I’m gonna have to get a C-section.”
As a woman who suffered from gestational diabetes with her first child, I am going to jump on Khloe’s side on this one. It is a FACT that excessive eating, especially of carbohydrates and sweets can in fact cause your baby to be too big, but more importantly, it can cause the mom to develop GD, the temporary condition where mom and baby have diabetes during the pregnancy.
It goes away once mom gives birth. The body senses the baby as a foreign invader and stops making insulin as it should and that’s why it is not a permanent conditition, though after a woman gets it, her and her child are more prone to develop Type 2 Diabetes later in life or some other autoimmune condition. It’s serious stuff!
I’ve blogged this before, but I used to drink 7-11Slurpees daily because I discovered they helped me stave off the 5 months of morning sickness I experienced all day while pregnant. All of that sugar not only caused me to get too big too soon (and the baby too), but it also contributed to my positive gestational diabetes diagnosis later on in my pregnancy.
I had to measure my blood sugar daily with a stick test and see a dietitian who instructed me to reduce my carbohydrate intake in order to keep myself healthy and to stop the baby from going too much larger.
As a preventative measure, for my following two pregnancies, I stuck to a diet that limited carbs because I did not want to get GD again! It was not fun poking my fingers all the time and also, it is a health risk to the baby.
The doctors and experts who criticize celebs without actually being their physician or caregiver are overstepping their bounds and in this case, giving out potentially bad advice.
So Khloe is right on this one, but I guess spinning it like she was going out of her way to have a tiny baby is better for selling papers! ha!
Traditionally, a “push gift” or “push present” is something a spouse, boyfriend, fiance or partner gives to the woman who gives birth to the couple’s child after delivery, but in the celebrity reality TV world, things are never traditional.
Khloe Kardashian‘s bestie Malika Haqq gave her a diamond personalized ring bearing the name of the youngest Kardashian’s daughter with Kardsahian’s estranged beau NBA star Tristan Thompson.
“Diamonds are always a part of life’s most meaningful moments, which is why I wanted to give this sweet ring to Khloe to celebrate becoming a mom to baby True,” the model and actress captioned an Instagram photo of Kardashian wearing a diamond studded ring that spells out True.
She ended the quote: “Diamonds are also mother nature’s greatest gift, so it had to be something natural. I wanted something that will stand the test of time and is rare, precious and unique. It just seemed like an authentic way to remember this beautiful time in Khloe’s life and in our friendship,” before tagging a diamond producer trade association’s insta, Real is Rare Real is a Diamond.
The love is symbiotic. Haqq’s post came a few days after Kardashian came to Celebrity Big Brother and Dash Dolls alum’s defense after a troll left a mean comment on one of Haqq’s photos.
In the comment section to a cute pic of Haqq in an oversized shirt and thigh high boots, the fan commented: “GIRL BYE!!!!! If it wasn’t for Khloé you would be a nobody… wait who are you again [sic]” to that Khloe replied to the comment:
“We are all entitled to our own opinions,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star clapped back. “And yes, love, you may have yours. But no need to be cruel when life is negative enough. But if it wasn’t for Malika then who knows where I would be emotionally.”
She went on to write, “She’s been my BFF since we were children. Loyalty and love means more to me than anything else ever could. Fame is fleeting. Malika is not.”
In an new exclusive interview with the three of the women of the Kardashian clan who are moms, Kylie Jenner, Khole and Kim Kardashian West, E! Newsuncovers the women’s deepest thoughts and opinions about motherhood.
If you didn’t catch the entire interview on E at 7|6c and 11|10c on August 1, 2018 when it aired, you can look for the replays! Here is a snippet:
NBA star Tristan Thompson’s other child Prince Thompson is now actively starring in his mom Jordan Craig‘s Instagram and fashion and lifestyle brand after a year of being obscured by mom.
In a recent post, the Fashion Instagram and Lifestyle blogger shared a photo of herself and her son in equestrian gear as she helped the 1 1/2 year old mount a riding horse. Mom plugged a “mommy and me” blog post she wrote on her All Eyes on Jordy C blog. It was a tender letter to her son.
“Dear Little P, There aren’t many things that excite me these days, the way that watching you grow does,” she wrote. “Watching you grow and do things for the first time is such an addicting, fulfilling feeling! Whether it’s traveling the world with mommy or equestrian riding for the first time at just 1 year old…your expressions and excitement are always priceless. On this day you rode your first horse (3 to be exact) at Le Chateau in North Carolina. At first, you were very skeptical about these big creatures but of course in no time you warmed up to them and couldn’t get enough!!”
The post continued: “I can’t wait until you are old enough to see all of your photos and watch all of the footage Mommy is constantly documenting of your every move. LOL! You are such a smart and well rounded little gentleman! I can’t wait for you to experience your next adventure!!!”
TMZ has previously reported insiders who said that Craig was upset when Thompson and his then girlfriend Khloe Kardashian started sharing photos of Prince that included his face on social media despite what she said she thought was an agreement to not do so. The first photo was an unveiling of an amazing playhouse fit for the son of a rich NBA star! ha! Very nice!
Now that four out of the five original Kardashian-Jenner women are moms and all super svelte and trim post baby delivery, we thought we would take a look at all the various weight loss gimmicks, tricks and hacks the ladies have shared on their social to their fans and followers.
Then I discovered that Cosmo already went thru and found about 13 of them
1. Flat Tummy Lollipops
On Instagram, Kim Kardashian-West posted the #ad above promoting Flat Tummy Co’s appetite-suppressing lollipops, calling them “literally unreal.” (She later deleted it.) The manufacturer’s website claims these candies contain an active ingredient called Satiereal, “a clinically proven safe active ingredient extracted from natural plants.” Eating one to two pops per day in response to hunger is supposed to promote satiety to help control food intake, cravings, and weight, and help hold you over until your next meal, all according to the website.
Khloé Kardashiansays wearing this secret weapon(essentially a trash bag that contains body heat during workouts) makes her sweat two to three times as much. “I like wearing the sauna suit during cardio, but you burn more calories and break a sweat faster even if you’re lifting weights,” she wrote on her app. She also says she drinks two or three times as much to prevent dehydration.
3. Cut out dairy
Khloé has said she lost 11 pounds in a month and a half by eliminating dairy from her diet and replacing foods like cheese, milk, pizza, and ice cream with dairy-free items.
4. Give up Gluten
Khloé’s nutritionist cut gluten out of her diet — and Kourtney recently put herself and her kids on a gluten-free diet too, bringing dairy-free, gluten-free cookies to her brother Rob’s birthday party for her kids to eat instead of birthday cake.
5. Wear a Waist Trainer
Khloé has endorsed Fit Tea Wraps (in sponsored posts, FWIW). Essentially, they’re a sheet mask soaked in a special gel made with ingredients like green tea, cocoa extra, and a bunch of other stuff that’s difficult to pronounce. You apply it to an area like your stomach, wrap it in cellophane to soak in, and rub the excess gel into the skin to minimize the appearance of cellulite for a firmer, toned look.
Speaking of Cardi B., her maternity style has been similar to Khloe Kardashian’smarked by oversized t-shirts and boots. It’s kinda attainable and could be pulled off by most people. You just have to get over any insecurity you have with wearing thigh high boots.
This weekend, the rapper sported an oversized black Lady Diana tribute print T-shirt from Far Fetch under an over sized acid washed denim jacket with gold hoops and blue-grey thigh high boots while performing at the annual Broccoli Festival in Washington, DC this past weekend.
