What Gabrielle Union and Kenya Moore Daly Are Being ‘Mommy Shamed’ About Now

Celebrities get “Mommy Shamed” for every. little. thing. they. do! It comes with the territory of having millions of followers, being socially influential and having humans with all sorts of opinions following your every move!

Recently, brand new first-time moms to baby girls, Gabrielle Union and Kenya Moore Daly were warned about kissing their own newborns! Yup!

(There and Pro and Cons schools of thought on this issue)

(Also previously shamed for kissing a child on the lips in in social media: Amber Rose, Kourtney Kardashian, Dads David Beckham and Union’s husband Dwayne Wade, Olivia Wilde and Hillary Duff)

Union shared a video which got all the heat but she chose to reply to them, writing, in a subsequent post including a video of her daughter Kaavia James being examined by the doctor who gave a clean bill of health:

Cant stop, won’t stop. 💋👶🏾@kaaviajames 💛❤💙💚🧡💜

Here’s a guide for happily enjoying my posts of our family. Trust that she is surrounded by medical and child care specialists. Know she is safe and watched closely at all times. Trust that I won’t post anything that puts my child in danger or opens me up to unsolicited online medical or parenting opinions 🤗 @kaaviajames is loved. She will be kissed. She will be loved on by the people that love her. She will be safe. If and when I have questions (as a new mom I have tons) I will not hesitate to ask my online community for help and suggestions. But yall have never known me to hold my tongue so trust that I will ask for help. Sometimes publicly and sometimes privately. Its OK that every parent does things differently to suit their child’s needs. Every solution that works or worked for you may or may not work for me or my family or other folks. And that’s absolutely OK. If someone does things differently or does not take your advise or that advise doesnt pan out the way it did for you, that is NO indication that you are wrong or a bad parent. We all figure out what works for us, our children and our families. We dont all have to match. It’s ok to break from the norm and do what’s healthiest and safest for your child. No one is in your house or your family but YOU. We dont all need to be clones of each other to be doing OK. The goal is for us all to have happy healthy families and that journey looks different for every family. Let’s embrace that. Let’s get comfortable with that. Someone doing something different than us does not make us bad people or bad parents. Breathe and enjoy. There will be no mommy shaming on this page. I rebuke mommy shaming. For those STILLLLL clinging onto your fears about Kaav’s breathing and or whether my sweet kisses harmed my kid…feel free to swipe.

Moore just ignore them and let her fans clap back over criticism of her kissing her infant, Brooklyn Doris.

Sheesh! 

Kourtney Kardashian: the last Dash To Break the Internet

This latest season of Keeping Up with The Kardashians started with the eldest of the sisters Kourtney Kardashian in tears over being told by sister Kim that she (Kourt)is the least interesting to look at.

That was over 6 months ago when the show taped and since then, Kourtney has ”cougared” her way through at least two different romantic partners who were years her junior and had made up for being told she isn’t interesting by posting a series of super sexy photos in social media.

Before, I think I can fairly say she was the last Kardashian that a lot of regulars folksy moms could relate to. She kept it rated PG and mom-focused. 

The reality Tv star’s image rebrand worked to catch the eye of GQ Mexico editors, at least, who feature her in its double winter issue.

And one particular photo shot by Michael Schwartz features the “assets” of the mom of three prominently!

In the photo, the 39-year old wears a long sleeve black turtleneck and no bottoms it appears. 

To say  the image, posted in IG,  took many of her 70 million fans and followers by surprise is an understatement!

While she got a lot of love in the comment section, I can say a  significant amount were body shaming ones and women expressing disappointment and stating the image will bring shame to her kids.

I don’t want to contribute too much to them by amplifying them so you can go to her post and read them for yourself. 

ETA: This is not the first time, Kourt has posted a nude photo of herself from a fashion spread. She did so in 2017and  while preggers in 2014 in Vanity Fair!

Still, this close up one is quite different.

What do you think!? Let’s talk about it in social! Find me @bellyitch on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram!

Celebrity Halloween 2018 Costumes (PHOTOS *UPDATED*)



Every year, celebrities go above and beyond to give superb portrayals for Halloween. This year did not disappoint. Here is a quick rundown of my faves including some from our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Ciara, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Jaime King and more.

Kylie Jenner recreated the Barbie in a box. It was one of several costumes she wore this season. She went as a Butterfly in a mommy and me photo with her daughter and as a Victoria Secret Angel group costume with her sisters. (see below)

The winner might be Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner killed as Gomez and Morticia Addams complete with Thing on his shoulder! Best hands down in my opinion this year!

oh I think Heidi Klum as Princess Fiona and Tom Kaulitz as Shrek as  is up there too!

Alicia Keys went over the top but in a good way as a Ninja. I mean, she had her entire costume as part of a movie poster and all with the credits including her children and husband.

Beyonce paid homage and tribute to Lil Kim last  year and this year, she went with another icon: Toni Braxton. She dressed as the pop crooner’s cover album for “Another Sad Love Song.

Actress, former model Jaime King dolled it up as Joan of Arc at Just Jared’s Halloween party presented by Carls Jr.

Ciara‘s costume portrayal of Black Panther heroine Nakia from Black Panther is 10X Levels Up! She did Wakanda right!

Crazy Rich Asians actor Harry Shum Jr. was boss as Eric Draven from the 1994 film The Crow,!

I wanted to go as Ariana Grande this year but I don’t think anyone did her better than Kourtney Kardashian did!

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend killed as Queen Elizabeth the II and Prince Phillip.

Winnie Harlowe as RuPaul

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson as Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwazzeneger in “Twins”

Kelly Clarkson as a penguin and Jennifer Hudson as Catwoman

The Kardashian/Jenner girls were blessed to have Victoria’s Secret loan them actual angel wings so they can dress as true Angels for Halloween.

My fave is Kourt’s because she is tiny and the oldest

Bethenny Frankel could have joined the sisters because she too dressed as a Vicky Sec angel this year.

 

The Ladies of The Real TV talk show dressed up as iconic TV talk show hosts. Tamera Mowry-Housley was Tyra Banks. Jeannie Mae went as Ellen Degeneres. Loni Love dressed as Oprah Winfrey and Adrienne Houghton as Sally Jessy Raphael.

The TODAY show traditionally go all out for Halloween. This  year, I was thoroughly impressed by Al Roker and Dylan Dreyer dressed as Marty McFly and Doc Brown From Back to the Future.

Kelly Ripa is usually a show stopper wearing a variety of looks and costumes each Halloween with her hosts throughout the years, Regis, Michael Strahan and now with Ryan Secrest. They did a bunch of 80s TV show characters this year. She did it up as as Vicki the Robot From Small Wonder.

The two of them portrayed Jeannie and Major Nelson From I Dream of Jeannie.

And one of my fave shows: Laverne and Shirley‘s Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney.

Seacrest came out in a small model car like the one Ricky Stratton From Silver Spoons owned and drove in the opening sequence to that show.

Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest, and Art More as a modern twist on the Friends Cast.

I loved Disney Channel stars Jenna Ortega and Asher Angel as Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. I asked my husband to go as this duo to a Halloween party we were going to and he said no. Boo!

Monica is another celebrity that puts a lot of work into her Halloween costume every single year. She dressed as Johnny Depp‘s portrayal of the Mad Hatter.

Sarah Michelle Gellar looked hot as as Harley Quinn.

Adrienne Bosh could barely be made out in her Halloween Insta share as a Ghoulish Ghost.

One of my faves because of how close to the original it was is Madison Pettis from Nickelodeon‘s Cory in the House as Coachella Beyonce

Also loved Gwen Stefani as Sally From Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Speaking of which! Gabriel Union did a great job dressing as Stefani in No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” video before heading out to her birthday party.

No. Doubt. @gwenstefani

Trend: High Rise Swimsuits If You Dare, Many Won’t



If you’re a watcher of fashion trends, you may have noticed that high cut bikinis and bathing suits are all over. Several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and others have sported this style of swimwear that is quite risque given how high up on the hip the suit goes. The Jenner sisters sell them as part of their fashion line.



If you’re brave enough to don one this summer, there are plenty of options and styles. Various brands, stores and design houses have made these suits available in a variety of colors, textures and materials.

Moms tend to prefer the high waisted ones or belted swim versions like the Out From Under Peek-A-Boo Ring One-Piece Swimsuit that Urban Outfitters sell for $69.00 or its Out From Under Alli Belted High Cut One-Piece Swimsuit $59.99.

Our team has curated their top picks below:





10 Kardashian Moms Weight Loss Tricks & Hacks

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.

2. Exercise in a Sauna suit

Khloé Kardashian says 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.



Other tricks include

 

6. Drinking Ghee in the Morning

7. Cutting Out Carbs

8. Wear Tea Wraps

9. Eat Chia Seeds as an Appetite Suppressant

10. Take a Probiotic Pill after Working Out

Fashion Reigned Supreme at the 2018 CFDA Awards

The Council of Fashion Designers of America—in partnership with Swarovski for the 17th year—(CFDA) held its annual awards last night at the Brooklyn Museum which was hosted for the first time in 10-years by a woman, Insecure star, producer and writer Issa Rae. 

During the red carpet of the event, we noticed several of the celeb moms (and one mom-to-be) we have featured on the blog looking tres fashionable.

In collage above: Top: Irina Shayk, Jourdann Dunn, Lily Aldridge, Busy Phillips, 2nd-time mom-to-be Clair Danes; Bottom: Rachel Zoe, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian-West, Alessandra Ambrosio and Ciara looked ravishing!

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!

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Welcome Their Daughter (UPDATED)

Congratulations to Khloe Kardashian on the birth of her first child, daughter, in a hospital outside Cleveland, Ohio this morning, TMZ reports.

The Good American Apparel co-founder announced her pregnancy with NBA‘s Cleveland Cavaliers star, Tristan Thompson, just last December after much speculation.

Since then, the Revenge Body on E! host has been sharing a lot about her pregnancy experience through her personal app and website, from what’s inside her hospital bag to her pregnancy fitness and post-baby exercise routine.

The delivery comes on the heels of very public videos, suggesting that her beau since September 2016 was cheating on her with a woman in NY and a couple of other women at a hookah lounge outside DC last October. Neither Khloe, her family or Thompson have publicly addressed the reports.

Today, it was reported that the family is rallying around the youngest adult female Kardashian. (Her brother Rob Kardashian‘s daughter Dream Kardashian technically is the youngest Kardashian)

According to an insider to E! News:

the 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star went into labor on Wednesday. After her water broke, the reality star went into labor for “several hours,” per another source. She then delivered the baby at a Cleveland hospital Thursday morning. Thankfully, her mother, Kris Jenner, her sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, and her BFF, Malika Haqq, were all there for support.

“She labored with Kris all day on Wednesday,” the first insider said.

The first insider also said the baby’s father, Tristan Thompson, was there for the birth. The Cleveland Cavaliers player had a game against the New York Knicks in Ohio on Wednesday.

“He wants to spend as much time with the baby as he can,” the first insider added.

The birth came days after videos of Thompson kissing and being intimate with other women surfaced online. The second source told E! News Khloe is “distraught” over the allegations but is focusing on the baby. While the aforementioned source said Khloe wants the baby to have a relationship with the father, the insider also said she and Thompson are not on good terms. Khloe also reportedly plans to head back to Los Angeles as soon as possible and raise the child there.

The new baby will have plenty of cousins: in addition to Dream, whose mom is Blac Chyna (real name Angela Renee White), North, Saint and Chicago West (daughters and son of Kim Kardashian-West and husband Kanye West); Stormi Webster (daughter of her half-sister Kylie Jenner and her hip hop star boyfriend Travis Scott, real name Jacques Webster); and Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick (daughter and sons of Kourtney Kardashian and her ex Scott Disick)

The baby’s arrival was showered at a lavish pink baby shower earlier this year.

Congrats to Khloe and we are thinking and praying for a healthy recovery and that she overcomes this very stressful situation.

The baby also has a half-brother, Thompson’s 1-year-old son Prince from a previous relationship with Jordan Craig, who is first cousin to our other Bumpwatch alum, Eniko  Parrish Hart.

Inside Kim Kardashian-West’s Lavish Baby Welcoming Bash

Kim Kardashian-West hosted a celebration to welcome the impending arrival of her third child via surrogate.

The lavish event, themed “Tea For Three“, was held inside her gorgeous multi-million dolls  Cali home she shares with rapper and designer husband Kanye West.

Dozens of cherry blossom trees lined the room.

Guests included mom Kris Jenner, sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, close friends Chrissy Teigen, Maria Menounos, Khadijah and Malika  Haqq and others.

The reality Tv star and biz mogul gifted guests crystals and perfume from her brand new but widely successful KKW beauty line.

The mom to 4-year old daughter North and almost 2-year old son North served chef-catered mini sandwiches, scones and various salads. Kris made a champagne toast and teared up a bit when talking about how proud she is of her girls and how excited she is to be a grandma once again, E! Online reported.

The baby is due before Christmas, according to Kim.

Based on the color, it looks like the baby is a girl.

There were no shower games and probably just intimate gifts for the baby so it’s probably too presumptuous to call it a baby shower even  .

Sounds like it was a wonderful and blessed event.
