The Mannequin Challenge is pretty much 2016 but before you move on, you should check out the version of the challenge that songstress Marsha Amborious shared on her Instagram.
Before giving birth to her daughter Nyla the day after Christmas on December 26, 2016, her then-beau Dez Billups proposed to her during an intimate baby shower.
After the big surprise, they recreated the moment in the form of the challenge and posted it on Instagram.
The former Floetry
duo singer tweeted and IG shared her birth announcement complete while holding her newborn and outfitted in a super warm snow bunny PJs.
This is the first child for the Grammy-award winning recording artist and her music industry fiance.
Also, Kudos to the chart-topper for breastfeeding as well. She posted a photo of her pump with the caption, “Pump p p pump pump p p p… ???”
I had a disagreement with a friend a while ago about a celebrity pregnancy announcement. She disagreed with me that a celebrity cupping her belly at a public event counts as a pregnancy announcement.
Indeed, it is informal but it is the new way. Beyonce, Amber Rose, Marion Cotillard and Gwen Stefani all “announced” their pregnancies that way. They each did the cupping the belly red carpet reveal.
I didn’t realize that one of my husband’s fave recording artist multi Grammy-award winning singer Marsha Ambrosious, formerly of the group Floetry, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Dez Billups.
She announced the news this summer while performing at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. She did so by cupping her belly on the stage. Without doing that, it is possible, fans may have assumed perhaps she just gained a little weight.
The “Late Nights & Early Mornings” singer later confirmed the news to Essence.com.
“I didn’t anticipate live music to do what it was going to do,” the “Far Away” singer said of her soon-to-be-born daughter while performing or listening to music. “It’s like an internal earthquake every time music plays. It’s brand new to me but it’s so exciting. I don’t know what she’s doing right now.”
Since the announcement, the couple have been posting adorable photos of each other on IG and Twitter like this one:
