First-time mom-to-be rapper Cardi B made her Coachella debut over the weekend and played a few tracks of her recently released hit album  Invasion of Privacy which debuted number one on the Billboard 200.

During the Love and Hip Hop alum’s set that featured a orange back drop with her and her acrobatic dancers dressed in all white, the “Bodak Yellow” singer brought out a host of other popular rappers and hip hop artists and singers to guest perform their respective tracks on her album: Chance the Rapper, 21 Savage, YG, Kehlani and G-Eazy (playing “No Limit”)

The Bronx native earlier revealed that while she received $70,000 for each of her two performances this weekend, she shelled out an additional $300,000 or more to pay for the set, dancers, crew and other production costs that the Coachella team did not pay for, added to the lost income potential due to a non-compete/performance clause the festival attached to her contract stopping her from performing within a radius of the festival for a period of time. Wow!

Not only did she make history recently for beating Taylor Swift’s streaming record, being the first woman to be on 5 songs on Billboard’s Top 10 R&B/Hip Hop charts and the first female solo artist to land on number one of the Billboard 100 since Lauryn Hill, but she also made history as the first host and musical performer to announce her pregnancy on SNL (Saturday Night Live) last week! This mama’s star is meteoric!

Recording Artist Lauryn Hill‘s record-setting Grammy Award Winning album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” had a song called “To Zion” dedicate to her baby boy and now, 19 years later, that little boy is a brand new dad.

The Bob Marley descendant and his girlfriend welcomed a son over the weekend.

Zion’s dad, Rohan Marleyannounced the birth of his grandson’s arrival on Instagram and shared his name.

“JAH BLESSINGS,” he wrote alongside a picture of himself holding the infant. “WE GIVE THANKS FOR LIFE. Welcome to Earth Little ZEPHANIAH NESTA.

 



Rohan, the son of late Jamaican reggae singer Bob Marley, also posted a photo of the newborn along with a Bible verse from Zephaniah 3:16, which is reportedly the inspiration for the baby’s name.

“In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack,” Rohan noted.

According to Vibe magazine, Zion also shared a photo of the baby, on his private Instagram account captioned, “If there ever was a question who I do it for…#myson.”

Zion’s half brother, Nico Marley, shared a photo of Zion holding his son shortly after he was born. Later, Zion, himself later shared a photo of Zephaniah’s mom to respond to reports of people asking who she was.

According to his social media, Zion is in the music business himself though there are reports that he is also in college.

 

Congrats all! A new Marley is Born. The legacy continues.

Celebrity Couples whose Union Didn’t Survive Their Baby’s First Birthdays

bellyitcblog.com spli up

US Weekly reports that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have split after 11 years together.

It is the latest in a slate of high-profile celeb break ups this summer including Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Break ups are sad and we’ve notice that in the 7 years that Bellyitch Blog has been in existence, a substantial amount of celebrity women who we have had on our “bumpwatch” list have broken up with their respective significant others.

Some broke up before the baby was even born: Christina Milian, Kelis, Heidi Klum and January Jones,and many more split with their respective hubby/baby daddies before they even gave birth.

Last year, CiaraEva Marcille (nee Pigford),  and Amber Rose split with their partners before each of  their baby’s turned 6 months old. The separations have been messy, still.  A few years ago, Selma Blair and her ex Jason Bleick split up 14 months after welcoming their first child together.

Others we’ve covered who have called it quits include: The Jamie Foxx show actress Garcelle Beauvais, TV host Padma Lakshmi from Top Chef, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Freeman from My Wife and Kids, Lauryn Hill, Kimora Lee Simmons (Djimon Hounsou days), Hilary Duff, Fantasia, Halle Berry, Jill Scott, Kate Hudson, Jamie Lyn Spears, Lauren London, Monyetta Shaw (NeYo’s ex), Golden Brooks from “Girlfriends”.

At this point, it’s probably safer to start chronicling those who are still together because they are the new exception, not the rule in Hollywood, it seems. But hey, so long as everyone is happier and better off apart and the off-springs are co-parented well with little to minimum drama, right?

No judgment from us, okay. We’re  just pointing out the trends and facts. Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts! (*smirk*)

Celebrities who were cheated on while pregnant

Sadly, the rumor mill is reporting that Hank Baskett Jr may have cheated on our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kendra Wilkinson while she was carrying the couple’s second child.  They initially denied the reports until the woman (who happens to also be transgendered) who claims to have had a torrid ongoing affair with Baskett kept giving interviews that revealed some intimate details and Wilkinson allegedly discovered credit card charges for meals with two persons that her hubby could not explain, according to web reports.

This week, Perez Hilton‘s parenting site Perezitos featured a gallery of 11 celebrity  women whose partners or spouses allegedly cheated on them while pregnant. We saw some of the women from on our 2010 post about 6 celebs who broke up before their baby was born on the list and noted it missed Brit personality Katie Price, who we blogged about last week.

Price told a British talk show that she felt her husband Kieran Hayler cheated on her because she gained too much weight while pregnant.

Yikes!

Anyway, we’d add to Perez’s gallery which includes Lauryn Hill (Rohan Marley), Nivea and Lauren London (both by  Lil Wayne), Christina Milian (The Dream), Kelis (Nas), Shar Jackson  (by Kevin Federline) ,Heidi Klum (by Flavio Briatore), Bridget Moynahan (Tom Brady), Mary Louise Parker  (Billy Crudup) and Wendy Williams (Kevin Hunter).

Add from our post: Alexis Knapp who may have been cheated on by Ryan Phillipe while she was pregnant with their child; Ginny Barber who was pregnant with Tiki Barber‘s twins when the two broke up, allegedly because he was cheating on her; and January Jones who may have been cheated on by her son Xander’s dad – whoever that is, possibly Jason Sudekis or Ashton Kutcher. 





Generally, most men stick by their women’s side while she is carrying their child but not all area able to stay faithful during a time when his woman may not be in the mood to have sex,  may experience a change in her body she may not like and embrace; and may just be bitchy to her dude. The strongest can sustain their love and relationship through it all.
