Rochelle Humes Welcome Second Child, Daughter Valentina Raine

d2010235-0c90-4be9-a1f0-84ec54c81028

Congrats to Brit TV host and former reality TV star of E!’s Chasing The Saturdays Rochelle Humes on the birth of her second child, a baby girl.

Humes famously waited until she was in her 6th month of pregnancy with her and Radio DJ and ex boy band husband Marvin Humes. to announce the news.

The Saturdays girl band and the former JLS star are already parents to three-year-old daughter Alaia-Mai.

‘The our world is now complete Valentina Raine Humes – Happy birthday little one,” she captioned an Instagram photo of herself cradling her newborn.

In an interview with the Daily MailOnline, Marvin candidly told the site as Rochelle grew closer to her due date that she was “getting zero sleep at night so it could be any day.”

He also confided about the decision to forgo finding out the baby’s sex in advance.

“With Alaia we found out (the sex) early on but with this one we thought we’d keep it a surprise as there’s so little you can keep a surprise in life and really this is life’s most beautiful surprise,” Marvin shared. “We’re really excited, I had a dream the other night that we had a boy and on the same night she had a dream we had a girl. We definitely planned to have number two. We’ve been quite lucky with the timing.”

Rochelle also dished to the press on her decision to stay mum on the pregnancy for so long.

“We wanted to keep it quiet for as long as possible. We told some close friends and they kept their mouth shut so I was impressed,” she added.

On the U.K. panel talk show Loose Women,  the singer gave clues about differences in this pregnancy which would be a clue she was having a baby of a different gender.

“I’m carrying low this time. It’s more up here [pointing to her cleavage] They’ve changed. He likes it more than I do.”

Brit TV Host Rochelle Humes’ Red Carpet Glam

Although this blog focuses mainly on pregnant American celebrities, occasionally, I like to highlight celebs from other nations in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Former E! reality TV star of the show Chasing the Saturdays Rochelle Humes piqued my interest when she was first expecting her first child Alai-Mai with her husband, former boy band member of the Group JLS, Marvin Humes.

There were reports out that she was half Sierra Leonean and I was born in Sierra Leone. However, the TV presenter has since been quoted saying it isn’t true and she was baffled how the rumor started.

Pooh! There goes my personal connection!

That revelation has not stopped me from still being happy to report on her second pregnancy.

She was stunning in a royal blue beaded Phillip Armstrong dress while attending the National Television Awards in London.

She is about 8 months pregnant and looked absolutely stunning!

Check out the photos she shared a few weeks back:

Second-time mom-to-be Rochelle Humes is not slowing down and in fact, hit signed on to join the cast of the popular children’s television series, The Teletubbies

The singer and TV presenter called it a “no-brainer” to sign on to lend her voice to a show she watched as a child.

“I’ve always been such a big fan of the Teletubbies,” Humes said in a press release about the new casting. “My sister and I used to watch it together when we were younger and as I now have a little girl, it was a real ‘no-brainer’ to be part of it. I jumped at the chance to be involved.”

The existing cast of the  series includes Jim Broadbent, another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Fearne Cotton and Jane Horrocks, who all lend their voices to the “Voice Trumpets”.

The Humes‘ scenes will air in spring 2017.

This year will mark 20 years since the original series first appeared on British television, with special changes announced including a new signature song for the Tiddlytubbies (Mi-Mi, Daa Daa, Baa, Ping, RuRu, Nin, Duggle Dee and Umby Pumby).

British TV Host Rochelle Humes’s Hosting Gig Forced Pregnancy News Ouster

rochelle-humes-and-marvin

It turns out that our guesses were right that second-time mom-to-be Rochelle Humes is in her second trimester. The British girl band member who also starred in a one-season E! TV reality TV show, Chasing the Saturdays,  told the audience during a taping of the ITV show Loose Women that she was “surprised” her friends kept her pregnancy a secret.

Her husband, Marvin Humes, a former boy band member  of the British group JLS and currently a Capital FM DJ said last week that she was close to six months pregnant

They would have waited longer but a TV gig thwarted that plan.

She had to go public with her news because she and Marvin were part of the hosting team for BBC charity telethon ‘Children In Need’ , the Daily Mirror reports, and her stylist told her that she wouldn’t be able to hide her bump on television.

“It’s amazing, [Rochelle] is doing so well and she’s a real trooper. She’s nearly six months – she’s only a week away from being six months,” Marvin told  Daily Mail, Marvin. “She looks great and we’re so lucky we’re having a second child,” Marvin added. “We’re really, really excited.”

The couple are parents to 3-year old daughter Alaia-Mai and said they will not find out the baby’s sex until it is born.

“We thought it would be nice to keep it a surprise,” Marvin revealed. “We’re going to wait and see.”

Rochelle, who is a TV host of the British show The Next Great Magician almost found out the news when a psychic to the stars, including to Kim Kardashian West, wrote down the baby’s gender on a card and placed it in an envelope. The host of the show offered to reveal it but Rochelle passed because she suspected the psychic would be right.

Certainly, that would ruin the whole ‘wait and see’ thing for sure.

Watch the exchange:

Rochelle Humes is Expecting Her Second Child

rochelle

British TV host and former girl band member Rochelle Humes and her husband ex-boy band member Marvin Humes are expecting their second child. Marvin announced the news on his Instagram.

“Absolutely delighted to announce that Rochelle and I are extending our family!” he captioned a collage of a recent maternity photo. “We’re over the moon! Baby Humes no2 is on the way!!”

She also posted her own Instagram with the teasing caption: “Ten tiny fingers, ten tiny toes, but who are you? Nobody knows…”

We covered Rochelle when she was expecting her first child, daughter Alia-Mai. Hope she has a boy this time.

Congrats!

Beyonce isn’t the only celeb mom to shield public criticique by only showing her daughter from the back

This week, Joan Rivers is getting pushback for calling Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s daughter North, ugly during her last stand up gig.

Even though Joan’s brand of snarky and biting humor is her shtick, babies maybe should be off limits. It’s no wonder some A-listers like Beyonce Knowles  avoid showing her daughter Blue Ivy’s face to the public.

Beyonce usually only shares photos of her daughter Blue from behind
 That 2-year old is subject to harsh public inquiry and has been the subject of some pretty mean memes over her hair and other physical features.
We have noticed that British girl band singer Rochelle Humes (nee Wiseman), who we bumpwatched when she was pregnant with her daughter Alaia-Mai Humes (born May 2013), also rarely shows her daughter’s face in images she posts in social media.

Other than once after Aiaia-Mai was born, she’s only been giving folks the Back of the head shot with her dad  and Rochelle’s husband former Boyband singer Marvin Humes –  a la Bey and Blue.
With all the Internet critics and wayward comediennes out there, can’t blame her, though. 

What do you say?
