Tonight, second-time mom-to-be Carrie Underwood co-hosts the Country Music Awards with Brad Paisley at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The American Idolalum has not let anything like being pregnant and incubating a whole new human stop her from performing the honors for the 11th time in a row.
Tonight will be the 52nd annual iteration of the show dubbed “Country music’s biggest night on TV.”
Personally, I’m excited to see how she will be serving her baby bump as only Carrie can.
Since announcing news of her pregnancy this summer, Underwood has been seen rocking a sequinned mini at the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on October 9, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Similarly, the “Think Before He Cheats” singer glistened and glowed at the arrivals of the 2018 CMT Artists of The Year event at Schermerhorn Symphony Center on October 17, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee
That same night, she went short and glittery again while performing on stage.
Earlier that month, we spotted her super early in her pregnancy looking fab at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena on September 22, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
So we know to expect some ultimate swerve from this hard-working mama!
The American Music Awards went down on Monday, October 8 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California and several of our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums performed, hosted and presented awards, and current 2nd-time mom to be Carrie Underwood won for Favorite Female Artist- Country, while new first-time mom Cardi B won Favorite Soul/R&B song for her duo with Bruno Mars, “Finesse“, and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop song for “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)“.
Jennifer Lopez hit the stage to perform her latest Sia-written song “Limitless” but before that showed off her hawt figure in a pink black belted Georges Chakra gown with fierce Jimmy Choo shoes.
We also saw Ciara make an amazing performance with musical icon Missy Elliot, amedley of hits “Level Up” and “Dose,” Ciaralooked really fab in a super cute DSquared2 mini dress and shoes accented with Pandora jewelry.
Underwood also performed, her hit song “Spinning Bottles“, after bumping it up on the red carpet in
Singer Ashlee Simpson‘s sister in law Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the show and the Ashlee and Evan E! reality TV star showed up to the carpet with hubby while wearing a sequinned blue Monique Lhuillier dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Narcisa Pheres earrings, and rings by Effy and 14 Karats.
Brand new talk show host Busy Phillipsdonned a black tuxedo suit while Heidi Klum rocked a black fringed out Julien Macdonald dress.
Jessie James Decker did Red carpet interviews in a Michael Costello jumpsuit and caught up with fellow Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Cardi B and Underwood on the carpet as shared on Instagram
I’ve missed a few red carpet coverage because…life but I was quite excited about what I saw this week at the American Music Awards, held at the Microsoft Theater on November 19, 2017 in Los Angeles, California….A lot of pink and black, but not together!
Not a mom but a blog fave, Tracee Ellis Ross killed it as host and the tribute to her mom Diana Ross who took home the Lifetime Achievement Award was all that and a bag of chips! (Do the kids still use that phrase?)
In the mix was her daughter in law Ashlee Simpson Ross, whose husband is Evan Ross, the baby boy of the Ross family. their daughter Jagger Snow stole the show! Ashlee wore a Christian Siriano dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry.
She was part of the sequins in black trim along with Clarkson who also went bold and brave in a velour and gold gown hugging her gorgeous hour glass figure. I’m loving her sleek blunt parted ombre hair too.
Kelly Rowland too did black with floral in a interesting long split Galia Lahav dress with sheer sleeves, fresh off witnessingSerena Williams‘ nuptials in New Orleans last Thursday. Her good friend Ciara went a bit S&M in an asymmetric black leather coat dress by Alexandre Vauthier haute couture and thigh high boots with wet look hair. Nicole Kidman played in safe in Black as well but looked stunning as usual in an Olivier Theyskens dress, Giuseppe Zanotti boots, a Versace bag, Fred Leighton jewels, and an Omega watch
Opting for the lighter part of the spectrum was Heidi Klum in a pink and gold slip dress with a deep v plunging neckline which is in a vintage Gianni Versace from Morphew, accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Mom-to-be country singer Jessie James Decker did a shade of pink too in a bump hugging off-the-shoulder dress, a shade of pink. Speaking of P!nk, she too went with the color of her name in a hot pink and tulle Monique Lhullier dressand her signature pink hair. Jenna Dewan-Tatum in gold and looked hot as usual in a beautiful Julien MacDonald gown, John Hardy jewels, and Giuseppe Zanotti strappy sandals.
Congrats to our alums Shakira for winning Favorite Latin artist and Carrie Underwood for winning Favorite Female Country Artist.
One of the first celebrities we ever bump watched, Christina Aquilera brought the house down in a tribute to the 25th anniversary of the Kevin Costner, Whitney Houston film, The Bodyguard singing “I Will Always Love You”, “I Have Nothing” and “Run to You” and “I’m Every Woman”. She killed it in my book! Did all the songs justice and Whitney with her voice, range and power! Wow!
Wasn’t Scandal star Kerry Washington just simply fierce on the red carpet to tonight’s 2016 PrimeTime Emmy Awards presentation?
Expecting her second child with husband, ex-NFLer Nnamdi Asomugha, Washington wowed in a gorge Brandon Maxwell dress with side cutouts. Who says you can’t do avante garde, sexy and chic while pregnant?
She accented the look she sported at the event that took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California tonight with jewels by Fred Leighton and a pair of Gianvito Rossi heels .
She was nominated for an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Emmy for her role as Anita Hill in HBO‘s movie Confirmation. In addition, the film is nominated for Outstanding Television Movie.
We were also loving the big full curls which looked like crochet braids with loose ringlets on top. Her make up was flawless and natural. Perfect! Bravo!
Sunday night was the American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California hosted by Jennifer Lopez with intermittent announcement duties by Ciara who left little to the imagination in a well constructed Balmain dress.
As usual, we tracked some of the celebrity moms that we’ve “bumpwatched” in the past to check out what and who they wore on the red carpet or on stage.
Gwen Stefani performed “Used to Love You” but before, she walked the red carpet in a stunning sheer and panel Yousef El-Jasmi dress. Carrie Underwood won the AMA for Favorite Country Female artist and sang her hit song “Heartbeat” during the show. On the red carpet she wowed in an Ellie Madi dress, Greymer shoes, Kimberley McDonald earnings and rings by Kimberly McDonald and Anne Sisteron.
There was much shine from all the sequined dresses which dominated this year’s red carpet. Paula Abdul, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato all did sequins as did our Bumpwatch alum Danica McKeller.
Shear with jewels. Shear with metallic. Sheer with lace. It seems there were many ways to present shear. The trend from last season has spilled over as we saw it on Ciara in Balmain, model Hannah Davis, who also presented an award, in Naeem Khan dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Anita Ko jewelry, and Stefani while performing in Jean Paul Gaultier.
Jennifer Lopez must have won the award for most dress changes during a show as she wore a reported 10 dressed during the course of the evening. My favorite was her red carpet dress. Wow!
You know who else was looking Amaze Balls on the red carpet to this past Sunday’s Prime Time Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California?
Second time nominee and brand-spanking 2nd time new mom Lena Headey looked stunning.
The deep auburn -colored-hair damsel was up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role on The Game of Thrones, which took home a record number of statues including a coveted, first time ever Best Drama win.
The magenta Zuhair Murad Couture dress Headey wore is of the same hue of the signature gown she wears often when portraying Cersei Lannister on the hit HBO TV show.
The gorgeous Brit radiated in the gown she accentuated with Jimmy Choo shoes and Harry Kotler Platinum Diamond jewelry.
So You Can Think Can Dance host and 2015 Emmy nominee Cat Deeley had a grand ole time this Emmy week taking her bump to all the parties and the big show.
The statuesque Brit beauty and her husband Northern Irish comedian hubby Patrick Kielty are expecting their first child together since marrying in 2012.
Deely, who was up against the winner The Voice host Carson Daly for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Programming, stunned in a low cut jeweled and beaded gold gown.
The Friday night before, the former DJ and hubby attended the Emmy Awards’ Performers Nominee Reception at the Montage Beverly Hills hotel on September 19 in Beverly Hills, California.
She wore a tuxedo jacket over a black mini dress concealing her bump. And those shoes were the bomb.com.
The Thursday, she was out again in a black wrap dress with gold embellishments on the shoulder, and carried an Yves Saint Laurent clutch at Entertainment Weekly‘s Pre-Emmy Party at Fig & Olive restaurant on Melrose Place in West Hollywood California.
On Wednesday, she did black again at the Audi Celebrates Emmys Week 2015 at Cecconi’s Restaurant on September 17, 2015 in Los Angeles, California, wearing a black, grey and gold long sleeve mini dress with a box clutch.
The party started the week before actually, when she attended the 2015 Creative Arts Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 12, 2015 in Los Angeles, California, in a high slit floor-length black with side embellished dress and sexy strappy heels.
Watching the red carpet to the 67th Annual Primtime EmmyAwards at Microsoft Theater tonight, I must say I was really loving all the creative and different silhouettes, daring cutouts and experiments with texture on the styles of clothing.
Early photos I saw revealed a lot of prom and pageant-like dresses, and very full skirts and structured boring looks we’ve seen before on the Miss Universe stage, but then when I began to dig deep into the photo galleries and I was wowed by Amy Poehler‘s midriff revealing black Michael Kors Collection dress with spaghetti halter straps. Grrrrr!
And January Jones‘ emerald Ulyana Sergeenko jumpsuit with a starfish brooch at the hip was to die for!
Kerry Washington did not disappoint this time in a silver metallic Marc Jacobs with futuristic cap shoulders, Casadei pumps and Harry Winston jewels. Love Love!
Mad Men‘s Jessica Parebrought out the color in her pink Monse halter dress, accented with Fred Leighton jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.
Many were nominated and several took home awards like Julia Louis-Dreyfus who won again for the 4th straight year in a row as the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Veep.
And Congratulations to Viola Davis for her historic win as the first African American woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in How to Get Away With Murder tonight. Bravo! She rocked this stage in a righteous twist-out fro complemented nicely in a white with black print Carmen Marc Valvo gown, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Neil Lane jewels.
Congrats also to Regina King who played a protective Muslim mother in the mini-series drama American Crime and for her role on that version of the series nabbed the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series of Movie!
She took her son Ian to the ceremony and acknowledged him in her speech for a win she really didn’t expect, as she explained to ET!
These were big wins given the fact that historically in the US, there are not that many roles written and cast for black women to play so they can outshine their contemporaries at the time and earn wins.
King looked nice though the color and frame of the dress was underwhelming for her powerful and strong body. The back was banging tho. Owww!
Maggie Gyllenhaal did the ball gown thing in Oscar de la Renta with Fred Leighton jewels. I don’t have enough words for Heidi Klum‘s dress and I found the fit of Claire Danes‘ Prada dress a bit off for her tonight.
Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky brought some glam in Bibhu Mohapatra and Chopard jewels and Sofia Vergaradid the usual old Hollywood glam vixen figure-hugging fishtail look. Seen it before. It’s her signature and works for her I guess but she really should change things up.
