Gal Gadot Talks Her Wonder Woman Bump In Rolling Stones

Actress Gal Gadot covers this month’s edition of Rolling Stone magazine and inside, she talks once again about having to hide her baby bump while filming her hit summer blockbuster, Wonder Woman.

The former beauty pageant queen shared a commonly shared anecdote about the funny lengths the film’s technical team put her through to hide her pregnant belly when she was expecting her now 5-month-ol daughter Maya.

“We cut open the costume and had this green screen on my stomach,” revealed Gaeltacht, who previously served in the Israeli military before striking it big as an actress. “It was funny as hell—Wonder Woman with a bump.”

 

Gadot will reprise her role on the upcoming film, The Justice League  with Ben Affleck as “Batman“, Ezra Miller as “The Flash and Jason Momoa as “Aquaman”, and others.

The actress, 32, and husband Yaron Versano are also parents to 5-year-old daughter Alma.

4 Very Popular Recording Artists That Wrote Lyrics About Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss

Earlier this year, we blogged about the fact that Harry Styles‘ first single off his self-titled debut solo album, “Sign of The Times” is about a woman dying in childbirth  and this week, we reminded you that Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott penned “Thy Will”to to help herself cope with her 2016 miscarriage.

But did you know there have been a couple of famous rappers who have also released songs with lyrics about pregnancy loss, fertility and miscarriage?

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter might just takes the prize for doing it the most.

In his recent song, 4:44, off the same-titled album, the platinum-selling chart-topper seemingly blames himself for his wife’s Beyonce’s miscarriages and losses by rapping, “I apologize for all the stillborns/ ‘Cause I wasn’t present, your body wouldn’t accept it.”

It’s more likely he was being colloquial and was probably referencing the miscarriages and not stillborn which occur in less than 1% of all pregnancies and happens when a baby is born deceased after 20 weeks gestation.

Later on in that same song, he raps about the praises of having twins, naturally, an acknowledgment is probably an indicator that the duo were anticipating getting help with their fertility from science via IVF.

“Look, I apologize often womanize / Took for my child to be born / See through a woman’s eyes / Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song / I don’t deserve you,” he rapped.

This is not the first time the biz mogul has penned lyrics about pregnancy loss. In 2012, his song “Glory” also addressed a miscarriage Beyonce had before the couple found success and finally welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy Carter.

“False alarms and false starts /All made better by the sound of your heart / All the pain of the last time / I prayed so hard it was the last time,” he opens up in the song.

Later on in the song, he raps, “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic We was afraid you’d disappear, but nah, baby, you magic,” referring to the fear that Blue would have been miscarried too.

Tender huh?

Female rapper Nicki Minaj also seemingly opened up  about a child she lost either to abortion or miscarriage in her 2014 song “All Things Go” on her album “The Pinkprint.

While referencing her baby as an angel watching over her baby brother Micaiah, (who she calls Caiah), she raps:  “I want Caiah to go to college just to say we did it,” she raps about her younger brother Micaiah then adds, “My child with Aaron, would’ve been 16 any minute / So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them / It’s like he’s Cai’s little angel looking over him.”

In a Rolling Stones article published that year also, the Queens native reveals that she had an abortion at age 15 and that she remains haunted by it:

Minaj’s first love was an older guy from Queens she dated while attending the prestigious Manhattan performing-arts high school LaGuardia. When she discovered she was pregnant, “I thought I was going to die,” she admits.

“I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.” Minaj says about the decision that “haunted me all my life,” though it was the right choice for her at the time. “It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”

It was never confirmed, but a few folks hypothesized she was singing bout that same child in that song.

Pregnancy Loss is still quite taboo so it’s great awareness building to have A-List stars include it in lyrics to their music, we think.

If 73-year old Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger can be expecting a child (his 8th) with is pregnant ballerina girlfriend, why can’t 60-year actor Mel Gibson be awaiting the birth of a child with his 26-year old girlfriend of two years, Rosalind Ross?

It’s not like anyone would be grilling them and giving them the second degree…as they do, hmmmm, let’s say a 50-year old celebrity woman who selects to have a baby at a later stage in life?  (sarcasm)

Speaking of Melanie, she looked very well about 7 weeks ago after posting a photo of herself on a beach on her Instagram page. I couldn’t help but get disgusted by the old arse surfer boy who commented about how her pregnancy was making her look fat! Ugh! I dislike people sometimes.

L’Wren Scott’s Death: Celeb moms tweet respects to the late designer

Yesterday, former model, business mogul and designer L’Wren Scott  reportedly committed suicide in her New York City apartment. The news broke the afternoon of Monday, March 17 about the tragic loss of the talented fashion maven who also famously dated Rolling Stones‘ lead Mick Jagger for over a decade. She  was said to have been millions of dollars in debt and perhaps was motivated by the financial collapse of her fashion empire. Police are still investigating though they have ruled out foul play.
Meantime, as social media has become the new distribution system for statements from public figures, several of our current and past Bellyitch moms also took to Twitter and Instagram to share public words of support to Scott’s family and Jagger.

Among her closest friend was Nicole Kidman who wore Scott’s designs on the red carpet, and in movies like Eyes Wide Shut, reports US Weekly.
“Nicole and L’Wren were close friends for 25 years,” a spokesperson for Kidman told The Insider With Yahoo. “Nicole is heartbroken and in shock right now and unable to say anything.”
Scott’s death is the latest in a string of high profile suicides and comparable to Alexander McQueen, another notable and talent who also took his life in 2010.
