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.

Kim Kardashian-West’s Musical Icons Halloween Costumes Are Giving Us Life

This year, Kim Kardashian-West has decided to channel all of her fave musical icons for Halloween.

So far, she and bestie Jonathan Cheban dressed as Sonny and Cher for the Tequila Casamigos party last weekend.

Then, for another event, she and sister Kourtney Kardashian dressed as Michael Jackson and Madonna attending the 2001 Academy Awards together.

Finally, the business mogul and reality TV star of Keeping Up The Kardashians was seen on her Snapchat dressed as the late 90’s R&B pop princess Aaliyah in her “Try Again” music video.

We love them all and are here for it! Can’t wait to see what other icons she will go as for other events leading up to Halloween on Tuesday.

@KimKardashian back at it again! Did she do 90’s R&B Princess #Aaliyah justice? #Halloween2017 ?

Caitlyn Jenner Confirms Kylie’s Pregnancy

Kylie Jenner‘s dad Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) has been the first person in the Kardashian/Jenner clan to confirm openly to the media that Kylie is indeed pregnant with her and 25-year old boyfriend, hip hop star Travis Scott‘s  baby.

Caityln’s rep told The Sun when asked how she found out about her daughter’s pregnancy: “All I can tell you is that it was some time ago.”

ok. ?

Kylie hasn’t confirmed that news in the media yet, as her mom Kris Jenner  told longtime family friend and executive producer of the Keeping Up with The Kardashian reality-Tv franchise Ryan Secrest when he pressed her  for confirmation.

Well there you have it! It’s always the dads! LOL!

Beyonce’s father Matthew Knowles confirmed that she was having twins before Bey and hubby Jay confirmed it themselves.

My thoughts on Kylie being pregnant is this: the girl is 20, yes a young age, but she has already achieved multi-millionaire status through her reality Tv show, clothing line with her  sister, Vogue model Kendall Jenner, and her wildly popular make up line, Kylie Cosmetics.

While ideally, and statistically, a baby born within wedlock of a healthy marriage has a better chance at a balanced life, it’s not common in Hollywood or even among general regular families these days.

So while Kylie may be young to start a family, she has more than enough means and support to provide for any child.

She’s a multi-millionaire with several homes  and her baby will have plenty of ready-made playmates in the form of cousins.

Kylie’s big sister Kim Kardashian- West and husband Kanye West are currently awaiting the arrival of their third child. The baby – a girl – is being carried by surrogate and is due in January.

The new Scott-Jenner baby will have the Kardashian-West kids, 4-year old North and 2-year old Saint and the Disicks, 7-year old Mason, 5-year old Penelope and 2-year old Reign, whose mom is Kourtney Kardashian and dad Scott Disick, 1o-months old old Dream Kardashian, Rob and Blac Chyna‘s daughter as cousins.

 

Celeb Couples That CoHabitate and Remain a Family Unit After Breaking Up

stay-as-a-family

Co-parenting with an ex can be hard but some, make it work. And then there are some who manage to retain their strong familial bond despite the break up that they confuse people.

I can think of three celebrity couples who take co-parenting to another level by co-habitating, remaining close-knit and vacationing together while broken up for the sake of the children.

More recently, I think of Bravo docu-series Real Housewives of Potomac housewife Robyn Dixon and her ex Juan Dixon, basketball coach and former NBA player. A big part of their storyline on the two-season show is the fact that they live in the same home for convenience and financial reasons, according to Robyn. The couple have two 7 and 9 year old-sons, Corey and Carter.

“We sleep in the same bed,” Robyn confessed to OK! Magazine. “If you didn’t know, if I didn’t tell you, you would assume we are married just because we function as a couple kind of as we have always known each other.”

She has said they are working it out and may reunite romantically.

Similarly, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have been photographed vacationing together in Hawaii this year, very much looking like a nuclear family with their 7-year old son Mason, 4-year old daughter Penelope and 2-year old son Reign in tow. The on-again-off again couple are part of a very public TV family so perhaps that makes it easier to keep close.

Not long ago, we hear that Ben Affleck reportedly slept in the room next door to Jennifer Garner after they split because it was just easier to keep the family unit together during those precarious times after the break up. Affleck and Garner co-parent 11-year old Violet, 8-year old Seraphina and 5-year old Samuel.

They are friends and have had amicable break ups and are adult enough to move past what ever caused the split and move forward together while they figure things out.

Naturally, these types of arrangements confuse people who are used to seeing couples go at each other’s throats after breaking up.

Blogger Destiny Green shared her story in Romper in a post titled “Here’s What That Beautiful Instagram Post Of My Family Doesn’t Tell You“.

In it, she relays that the perfect family people see on her social media feed is actually not even what it seems.

“I think it’s still strange for other people to see us acting as a traditional family, and with no conventional explanation behind our decision to part ways, it often feels hard to justify to people who ask about my relationship with Honor’s dad,” she wrote about her situation with her daughter’s dad Ibrahim with whom she is no longer in a relationship with.

It’s unconventional and sometimes criticized by onlookers but if it works for the couple for the sake of the children, who are we, as society to judge, right?

Green sums it up best:

My hope for every other mama who comes across my blog or Instagram page is for them to know that it’s OK for their journey to not look like mine and Honor’s — that whatever story is unfolding in their journey through motherhood is just as valid and important as anyone else’s. This is your life and what you are doing is right for you. At the end of the day, whether you are married and parenting with a spouse, single-parenting, or co-parenting and going to the museum for family days like my family does, only you can set your standards. Whatever your story is, I hope you’re able to embrace it, and I hope you know that you’re doing a great job.

Amen!

Grab These Kardashian Kids Clothes Deals: 50% Off; Starting at $7.00 NOW!

kardashian-kids

Boy do the Kardashians know how to do business. I know I’m late to the party but I just discovered that the family sells kids clothing! Whoa mama! The cool part is that the clothes are hip and chic, with a bit of edge to them but not too adult.

The line actually started back in 2014! (where have I been?) and they are inspired by the children in the family: Kourtney and Scott Disick’s three children 7- year old Mason, 4-year old Penelope and 2-year old Reign; and Kim’s 3-year old daughter North; and I suppose now her

The girls collection come in sizes newborn to 5T and include frilly tulle, faux fur, leopard prints and shiny gold leggins the boys run from newborn to 24 months and feature baggy sweat pants, sleeveless hoodies,  camo sweatshirts and suspender pants, signature of Mason.

The line is sold at Babies R Us, Nordstroms, Lord & Taylor and other retailers nationwide and the price ranges from $20 to $40 which is a great moderate price point but if you look around the web, you can find them at discount stores for less.

I did some digging and here is what I found of my fave items from this collection all ON SALE!

  1. A super cute sleeveless cream party dress for a baby up to 6-years old that comes with a sequinned top fitted to the waist and an adorable tulle skirt which is perfect for a portrait, a formal outing or visit to friends. It’s on sale now at Off 5th Avenue for just $26.99.
  2. I think the floral jumpsuit is something Kourtney would wear and so this is cute little mini me jumper for her daughter. It’s down from $37 to $22 at Alex and Alexa.
  3. The gold belted romper with cubic print is a great summer play version of the jumpsuit and it’s on sale now for $14.99 at discount outletters 6pm.
  4. I love the faux suede side panels on their Pointi leggings for girls. It too is down to $16.99 at 6pm. 
  5. Perfect for weekend outings, cruising at the mall, play dates are these pants with the edgy ribbed side panels. So fly! They’re $17 right now at Alex and Alexa.
  6. I love Ye and his style so I definitely saw him when I peeped this camo-inspired sweater. It’s a decent $19.99 at 6pm right now. 
  7. I know that it is winter in many parts of the states but I would definitely grab up this past season striped baby shorts for $$7.20 at Lord & Taylor and stock up for Spring!
  8. These pants with suspenders just scream Mason Disick. That little boy had so much style and sophistication when he wore such smart clothing. The pants and suspenders go for $29.99 at Off 5th for 2T-4T. And the infant version thru 24 months is $22.19 at Lord & Taylor. Not bad !
  9. I’m not sure when they released this baby girl black mesh dress but I think it is the cutest thing. And Lord & Taylor is selling it for just $9.99, down from $33! That’s a steal and won’t last long, I’m certain!
  10. The asymmetric black zipped coverall in that muted purple is to die for and it’s down as well at Off 5th for $26.99 from $36.99.
  11. I love the sporty look to the hooded sleeveless top. Zappos has it for $24.99
  12. Finally, I cannot get enough of the harem pants for infants they sell! Love! It too is on sale, I guess, for $17.49 at Nordstrom half off!

If you’re interested in picking up any of these items, I suggest you do so fast because often times right after I post about clothing on sale at various sites, they sell out pretty quickly and Lord knows when they’ll be restocked and if they’ll be priced that low again! Good luck and happy shopping!

Celebs that Do Co-Parenting Well and Dig Each Other Too

co-parenting

There are new generation of celebrity broken up couples being excellent examples for co-parenting. Some are even still secretly into each other and dating.

Trending this weekend was Kourtney Kardsashian who was rumored to be back with her ex beau and dad to her three kids, Scott Disick. TMZ clarified today that the couple are on friendly terms and travel together for co-parenting reasons though Kourt is open to rekindling their relationship now that Disick has remained clean and sober consistently for a long period of time! The couple co-parent their children together, 6-year old Mason, 4-year old Penelope and 1-year old son, Reign.

Good for them!

Also, rumored to be back together are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck who parents to 11-year old Violet, 7-year old Seraphine and  4-year old Samuel. Some reports state that they are actually planning to add on to their brood and some say Jen is already expecting. Who knows? Time will tell, for sure!

This weekend, a long-since divorced couple showed some cordial friendly behavior: Madonna and Sean Penn co-presented at an annual charity and had playful antics on stage. Penn even joked about handcuffing Madonna on stage after he took up her challenge to bid $150,000 for a necklace in exchange for her agreeing to marry him again.

Also, during the Latin Grammy Awards in November, Marc Anthony and ex wife Jennifer Lopez  gave each other a kiss after he presented her the Person of the Year award. He has since said that he is still in love with his ex wife and mom to their twins Emme and Max, according to US Weekly.

Sean “Diddy” Comb‘s relationship with his ex Kim Porter‘s son Quincy with 80s R&B recording artist Al B. Sure is ideal because he calls Quincy his son even though he is no longer with Porter and Quincy’s dad is very much alive and around.

Another great co-parenting role model is Jada Pinkett-Smith, who has helped her husband Will Smith raise his son, Trey, with ex Sheree Fletcher. They are great examples of blended families that get along.

Ask Alicia Keys, whose latest hit song is dedicated to blended families!

The future Angela Kardashian revealed this tidbit during an interview on her BFF Amber Rose’s podcast, Play. It’s Loveline with Amber Rose on Wednesday, September 14.

“I feel like with my second baby, I’m more educated than the first one,” the former model told Rose “Just reading and knowing the pros of breast-feeding for your baby, and just recently I found out some new, cool stuff about not cutting the cord and sending your placenta; you can get these pills to take them after to make you and the baby healthy.”

She will also join company with her future sisters in law Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian who also revealed that they took placenta pills.

Chyna is expecting her second child with fiance Rob Kardashian. She has a son named King with ex-fiance rapper Tyga, who coincidentally is currently dating her future sister-in-law Kylie Jenner.  See this neat E! Chart
