Foxy Brown Had a Baby Girl but Stayed Mum Entire Pregnancy

foxy-brown-key-to-brooklyn-640x476

Congratulations to rapper Foxy Brown who gave birth to a baby girl though no one even knew she was pregnant.

This morning on the Wendy Williams Show, the radio host turned talk show host discussed why Foxy turned down her offer to perform one of her most famous tracks on the show: she was pregnant!

“Literally, as I’m putting on my bracelet, the telephone rings,” Williams told her audience today.  “Congratulations to Foxy Brown. She had a baby girl. No word on exactly who the baby’s father is, but allegedly it’s a reggae star and I’m not going to say his name because I think that me and Foxy have some sort of relationship, and the bureau does have a working telephone. So, maybe she’ll call us.”

Brown, who was most famous during the 1990s as one of the very few successful female rappers, suffered some hearing loss and actually was recently hospitalized a few months ago, but seemed to be in good health soon after.

Fox seemingly was negatively mentioned by Remy Ma on the Love and Hip Hop: NY reality TV star’s recent “SHEther” diss track with a reference to a “deaf” and not battling with the “impaired” but Brown took the high road and opted out of snapping back.

She was probably too busy being a mom.

Congrat! Can’t wait to see the new baby!

Nicki Minaj’s ‘Baby Father’ reference to Meek Mill This Weekend Was a Joke (VIDEO)

Despite the fact that Friday night Nicki Minaj referred to her rapper beau Meek Mill as her “baby father”, it’s pretty much safe to say that the “Anaconda” hip hop star was not serious.

During her Friday, August 7 tour stop and performance in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, the Trinidadian American pop star introduced one of Mill’s cameo performances  by saying, “Make some noise for my baby father!”

Maybe she did it to squash rumors that the two had split after the fall out surrounding Mill’s (real name: Robert Rihmeek William) beef with Minaj’s label mate and frequent collabo partner rapper Drake.

She retweeted a fan who congratulated her on the baby news, adding a bunch of crying/laughing emojis, which suggested it was a joke.

Besides, Minaj has already said she is not interested in being a “baby mama” on purpose.

“I definitely will be married before I have my baby,” she told Complex magazine last November 2014. “I’ve always felt like that since I was young, my mother always put that in my head.”

Former Teen Mom creates Post-Pregnancy Friendly Swimsuit Line

A former Florida Teen Mom has released a brand of two piece swimsuits to cover moms’ stretchmarks and C-section scars.

Altrichia Cook says after having her son ten years ago, she struggled finding swimwear to accommodate her post-baby body, Buzzfeed reports.

“I was just looking for a high-waist suit for a vacation with friends to Puerto Rico,” Cook told Yahoo Parenting. “I couldn’t find one, so I took matters into my own hands and designed one.”

When her friends saw the ones she made for herself and began inquiring on how they could get one just like it, Cook realized that she was not alone in her feelings about swimwear and launched  her line, Allusions by A.Lekay.

Her designs are a welcome addition to the market.

“As I have grown, I get so many thank-you emails of women thanking me,” says Cook, who has since reunited with her son Anthony’s father. “One instance, a customer told me that she hadn’t worn a two-piece swimsuit in over 20 years.”

Her line got a recent boost when rapper Nicki Minaj was photographed in one of her designs from her Rockstar collection on the cover of the July issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

Now that’s what’s up!

Recently, there has been a movement for mothers to embrace their post-baby bodies including all the marks that come with it.

While Cook agrees its important to “love the skin you’re in,” but still, says  “realistically, no woman wants to share her stretch marks or C-section scars.”

Kudos to her and that line! We’ll pick up a pair for the Bellyitch moms on staff!
