This past weekend was a busy one with the BAFTA Awards, the Black Panther movie opening and the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend.
A couple of our current Bellyitch Bumpwatch mamas showed up and out including third-time mom-to-be Ayesha Curry who rooted on her husband Goldenstate Warriors star player Steph Curry as he lead Team Curry. They lost to our Bellyitch alum Savannah Brinson James‘ husband LeBron James team but that didn’t stop Ayesha from bigging up her man in an instgram post.
“W my love celebrating last night. So proud of you,” the cook book author captioned a photo of herself in an AC/DC tee, casual sweats and a leather jacket with the 2017 NBA MVP crouching down giving her bump a kiss.
First time mom-to-be Khloe Kardashian attended the “Game is Everything” dinner kicking off the weekend with her beau Cleveland Cavalier Tristan Thompson.
LeBron James was named All-Star MVP for the third time in his career this past weekend at the 2018 NBA All-Star game. James handpicked his team and then carried it to victory in a win for “Team LeBron” over “Team Stephen” on Sunday.
Kevin Hart and his wife Eniko Parrish Hart and kids were there as was Beyonce taking selfies with daughter Blue Ivy Carter and mama Tina Lawson and her husband Richard Lawson nearby.
Fun Times! Congrats to Team LeBron!
Serena Williams is having a very social week. A day after making her red carpet baby bump debut, the tennis champ attended the launch of the Burberry DK88 Bag hosted by Christopher Bailey at Burberry Soho on May 2, 2017 in New York City.
Whitney Port is finally coming from under the exhaustion spell of pregnancy. She posted a photo of herself looking happy and well…energetic on her Instagram account recently.
Her fellow MTV The Hills alum co-star Lauren Conrad has been laying low but was spotted at designer Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2017 ‘See Now, Buy Now’ Fashion Show on February 4, 2017 earlier in her pregnancy.
And another MTV family alum, Heidi Pratt showed off her bump with her hubby Spencer Pratt this week. “Sunday Fun. The 3 of Us,” she captioned an Instagram photo of the growing family.
Meanwhile, Beyonce has been busy making news as well. She appeared at her mom Tina Knowles Lawson and step dad Richard Lawson‘s charity fundraiser to support the WACO Theater Center in California. The event called the Inaugural Wearable Art Gala raised $1M, according to a recent post by Beyonce. It is reminiscent of the Met Ball, which also encourages attendees to wear artistic renditions of clothing or vice versa, wear art like clothes.
Meanwhile, Bey released the collector’s edition of her multi-award winning visual album, “Lemonade.” The box set will set you back $300 but it comes with behind the scenes photos, prints of Beyonce’s personal hand written notes drafted during the creation of the project and much more.
And just for kicks, Queen Bey blessed her fans and followers with another video of a game night date night she went on with her husband.
Normally, I do a Bellyitch Bumpwatch roundup of various pregnant celebs but today, there is so much Beyonce news, the Stan in me will focus this post on Mrs. Carter news only.
Fans are going wild over the fact that the mega pop star recycled the large silver circular earrings she wore in the “If I Were A Boy” video and speculating that she did so to relay subliminally to the world that she is having twin boys. (Cosmo)
The record Grammy nominated and winning start wore a cute black velvet mini dress that she accessorized with a black choker and black boots to her step dad Richard Lawson’
s birthday party this week.
The Lemonade singer is also reportedly obsessed over the extra weight gain she’s had which is very common especially with twin pregnancies. (Hollywood Life)
And the platinum-selling artist is also reportedly excercising a bunch to stave off the excessive weight gain. (US Weekly)
And it is cool to note that she is being adventurous by wearing color durinf a time that most expecting women stick with the color black as it is slimming (See above collage of recent fashion)
Sticking with a Beyonce-inspired theme today (and Dad-theme from yesterday).
Beyonce’s dad, Matthew Knowles, was infamously busted for having fathered a love child while still married to her mom, Tina Knowles. As you may know, Tina recovered from the betrayal and went on to wed actor Richard Lawson in an all-white wedding aboard a 140 feet yacht earlier this year.

The wedding reminded me of a very interesting and popular Yahoo!Answers question from a real-live woman entrenched in a similar type of quandary.
Here’s the question:
Suppose you are a married woman with kids. One day, a letter comes from a woman with pictures of her and her child. The woman is looking for the child’s father and says the father is ____ (your husband’s name). She says she has been looking for the child’s father for years. She does not know for sure that he lives at the address she sent the letter to. Your husband admits he is the father of the child and that he abandoned the woman in pregnancy and never saw the child. He didn’t cheat on you – this happened before you met. But not a long time before you met. Let’s say the child was born earlier in the same year that you met, and he was not very young when he fathered the child – he was in his 30s. It was not a one-night stand and He knew the woman for a couple of years.
a – encourage your husband that it’s time to start paying child support and being a part of the child’s life
b – want to leave your husband because he’s not the man you thought he was.
c – do nothing, it’s up to your husband to decide what to do, and hope he says nothing and the woman will drop the whole thing.
d – call up the woman yourself and tell her the person she’s looking for does not live there and you don’t know him, and hope she is convinced and doesn’t investigate further.
e- call up the woman and pretend you are someone other than the wife – perhaps a sister or another relative – and say he does not live there, and say she must have the wrong person.
How would you answer?!

UPDATE: The post was updated by the woman posing the question who admitted that she was the “other woman” (not the wife) and the wife chose (e), and she was hoping the wife would acknowledge the child so that he could meet his half-siblings. She thought it odd the woman chose (e) and went to Yahoo! Answers to learn how others would react.
