Eva Longoria is Pregnant With First Child, a Baby Boy

According to confirmed reports, Eva Longoria and her new husband José Antonio “Pepe” Bastón are expecting their first child together, a baby boy!

The Desperate Housewives alum famously told PEOPLE magazine in the Summer of 2015 after announcing her engagement that she wondered whether or not she still had time to start a family.

“I just turned 40, so I have thought, ‘Is time running out?’ ” the former star of the NBC comedy Telenovela said. “I should be thinking about [children], but I feel like my life is full.”

Well it’s going to get a lot fuller soon.

Baston is the president of  the largest media company in Latin America, Televisa. The couple started dating in 2013 and got engaged in Dubai in December 2015 before marrying in May 2016 in Mexico at a  star-studded party event that included a fireworks display.

Congrats!

‘This is Us’ Star Alexandra Breckenridge Shoots New Campaign as Palmer’s ‘Spoke-Belly’

While the popular NBC show This is Us ramps up for its second season, one of its stars Alexandra Breckenridge is also prepping for the birth of her second child, due February 2018.

Recently, Brecknridge started working as a brand ambassador for America’s No. 1 stretch mark brand in the U.S., Palmer, which has also reformulated their line to deliver even better results for smooth skin. New ads for the updated Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks, Massage Cream for Stretch Marks and Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks will feature Breckenridge.

Last week, the beautiful blonde who is also known for her roles on True Blood, The Walking Dead, and American Horror Story, had a photo shoot at a private LA residence for the campaign which will roll out beginning in February 2018 in print and digital properties, and on television and radio.

“As a longtime Palmer’s lover, I have trusted the brand’s products to keep my skin looking healthy and feeling amazing throughout my pregnancy journey,” said Breckenridge. “I’m so excited to share my pregnancy experience – and my belly – with the world through this partnership. Palmer’s has truly enhanced my natural ‘pregnancy glow’ and have allowed me to feel comfortable and confident.”

While genetics, the amount of water you drink and other factors impact whether you get stretch marks while pregnant, certainly keeping the belly moisturized and massaging it with a salve that contain natural skin-loving ingredients like Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and pure oils,  helps. Palmer’s products are free of mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, artificial dyes and are hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested, for healthy skin during pregnancy.

 “The storied ad campaigns for our stretch mark range have become a true celebration of the confidence that comes along with the joy of pregnancy and we are thrilled that Alexandra Breckenridge is the latest star to share her journey with us,” said  Jennifer Leonard, E.T. Browne Senior Product Manager. “With the launch of our Palmer’s New Enhanced Stretch Mark Formulas this winter, this campaign will document the natural beauty of pregnancy and give an intimate glimpse of early motherhood with all of our fans.”

Breckenridge and her husband guitarist Casey Hooper married in September 2015 and welcomed their first child, son, Jack a year later on September 3, 2016. They announced this Summer in August 2017 that they were expecting their second kid!

ICYMI: Watch Jennifer Hudson Take Us to Church in Hairspray Live!

jhud

In case you missed it, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Jennifer Hudson brought the house down (and some say saved) the NBC’s live musical Hairspray Live that aired this week, on Wednesday, December 7.

The actress played Motormouth Maybelle and did justice to one of the most powerful numbers, I Know Where I’ve Been which required pipes! Of course the Academy Award-winning actress could pull it off. After all, she won her Oscar in a role in a Dreamgirls remake that featured the mom to one taking audiences to church.

The musical takes place in 1960s Baltimore and focuses on the Civil Rights Movement, and in context, the song  Hudson belted out gave some extra significance to the lyrics.

‘Atlanta’ Actor/Producer Donald Glover Had his First Child in Spring; Didn’t Tell A Soul

donald glover


As actor Donald Glover rose in fame and popularity, he became even more and more private. So private that he deleted all of his social media posts except the trailer for his new FX channel TV show, Atlanta.

So, it comes as no surprise that he and his girlfriend had a baby in May and no-one knew…until now that the media randomly caught wind.

US Weekly reports that people spotted him and his mystery woman at a grocery store in Hawaii  in January this year with her looking about 7 to 8 months pregnant.

In May, she was seen pushing a baby stroller. Doh!

Glover grew up as a Jehovah’s Witness in Stone Mountain, Georgia and is best known for his role at Troy on the hit NBC TV show Community, and as a comedian. He also wrote for the hit NBC TV show 30Rock for several years and has a successful rap career as his alter ego Childish Gambino.

I love his FX show which is about a Princeton University student who drops out, who life as an unemployed drifter with his ex-girlfriend and their baby and tries to become rich by managing his up and coming rapper cousin, Paper Boi.

He’s told multiple press outlets that he didn’t attempt to make a hit show when he pitched and got Atlanta greenlit.

Atlanta is a Trojan horse,” Glover told Timemagazine in August. “The thesis was: How do we make people feel black? It turned into something more attainable than that, but that was the idea. I was like, ‘Let’s make something that shouldn’t be on the air, something controversial.’ If it’s canceled in 10 episodes, I’ll be happy with those episodes.”

Since becoming a fan of the show which Glover stars in, produces and writes, I’ve gone back to check out his stand up, music and past videos and have become obsessed fan. The boy has serious talent!

Congrats to him and his new family. We wish them all the success in the world!

Thinking of accident victim SNL’sTracy Morgan who welcomed new baby last July

It was just last July that we were wishing congratulations to SNL alum Tracy Morgan on the birth of his new daughter Maven Sonae Morgan with then fiance Megan Wollover. 





Today, our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family, and the family of those who lost their lives and are in critical condition in the hospital as Morgan is tonight.

A tractor trailer careened into the back of the limo bus carrying Morgan, friends and crew from one comedy concert location to a next on the New Jersey Turnpike. Morgan was flown to a nearby hospital where he is being treated.

Morgan is best known for starring as a caricature of himself in 30 Rock the long-running NBC show created by Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Tina Fey.

Kristen Bell: A Hollywood Mom Who Knows the Power of Social Media

  

So far 2014 has been

quite the year for actress Kristen Bell, and we’re only three months in! In

addition to starring in her passion project, the newly released Veronica

Mars
film, she’s also become the face of an ever growing movement to

protect celebrity children from paparazzi. Oh, and she was also a voice actor

in this one movie you may have heard of last year, it’s called Frozen?
Since the birth of her

daughter, Lincoln, in March of 2013, she hasn’t slowed down in the slightest.

That same month she teamed up with writer Rob Thomas to help turn their former

television series Veronica Mars into a film. The two of them were caught in negotiations with

Warner Brothers —who owned the rights to the franchise but didn’t want to put

up cash to make the film— when they decided to start a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise the funds instead. They were

the first group ever to launch a crowdfunding campaign for a film that was

already owned by a major studio, a risk that turned out to be worth taking

considering the campaign managed to raise more than its goal of $2 million in

the first day alone.
Kristen Bell has become

one of the most active and well liked celebrities on social media as well. In

fact, according to social media analysis tools Topsy and ViralHeat, at least 80% of the tweets mentioning the celeb have only positive

things to say. Kristen used this strong media presence while trying to raise

the funds for Veronica Mars, and is now redirecting that power

toward another cause close to her heart – that one of her child, and the

children of other celebrities.
Along with her husband,

Dax Shepard, and other celebrities (including Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner, who helped pass legislation in California protecting the children of celebrities last

year) she’s launched a campaign against the “pedorazzi”, as she calls them. Her

and Shepard argue that while they chose the become famous, their children did

not, and while being photographed by the paparazzi comes with the territory of

what the parents do, their children didn’t ask for it and don’t deserve it.

She’s a Mama Bear on a mission and it appears that nothing will stop her.

Her “No Kids Policy,”

which targets media outlets who publish paparazzi photographs of celebrity

children, has been wildly successful since its launch earlier this year. Major

media outlets such as People, Us Weekly,  Buzzfeed.com, Entertainment

Tonight
, and many other notable current events, news, and entertainment

outlets have all interviewed the star about her cause. She’s also been on a

media blitz, making live appearances to spread her message. She even appeared

alongside her husband on Access Hollywood to debate a few real-life

paparazzi regarding the issue. 
As for her acting work,

she’s currently starring in the critically acclaimed House of Lies on Showtime and reprised

her cameo role as the vapid and catty Ingrid de Forest on NBC’s Parks and

Recreation
earlier this year. 
Kristen Bell as Jeannie Van Der Hooven  in House of Lies
She’s also rumored to have a role in the recently greenlighted, online spin-off

of Veronica Mars for The CW’s website. If the rest of the year is going

to be like the first few months of it has been for her, 2014 is going to be one

heck of a year for Kristen Bell.
