Congrats to Saturday Night Live’s most senior cast member Kenan Thompson and his wife Christina Evangeline who welcomed their second child last Tuesday (July31). According to TMZ, Evangeline gave birth to their daughter Gianna Michelle and baby girl weighed a healthy 6 pounds, 6 ounces.
The couple that married in November 2011, are already parents to daughter Georgia who they welcomed in 2014.
Earlier this year, the Kenan and Kel and All That! alum was nominated for an Emmy in the Supporting Actor in a Comedy for his role on SNL.
First-time mom-to-be rapper Cardi B made her Coachella debut over the weekend and played a few tracks of her recently released hit album Invasion of Privacy which debuted number one on the Billboard 200.
During the Love and Hip Hop alum’s set that featured a orange back drop with her and her acrobatic dancers dressed in all white, the “Bodak Yellow” singer brought out a host of other popular rappers and hip hop artists and singers to guest perform their respective tracks on her album: Chance the Rapper, 21 Savage, YG, Kehlani and G-Eazy (playing “No Limit”)
The Bronx native earlier revealed that while she received $70,000 for each of her two performances this weekend, she shelled out an additional $300,000 or more to pay for the set, dancers, crew and other production costs that the Coachella team did not pay for, added to the lost income potential due to a non-compete/performance clause the festival attached to her contract stopping her from performing within a radius of the festival for a period of time. Wow!

Not only did she make history recently for beating Taylor Swift’s streaming record, being the first woman to be on 5 songs on Billboard’s Top 10 R&B/Hip Hop charts and the first female solo artist to land on number one of the Billboard 100 since Lauryn Hill, but she also made history as the first host and musical performer to announce her pregnancy on SNL (Saturday Night Live) last week! This mama’s star is meteoric!

Rapper Cardi B used her first Saturday Night Live performance ever last night to confirm the rumors that she is pregnant with her first child.
During her second performance on the show hosted by Chadwick Boseman, the camera panned back from the “Bodak Yellow” singer who was in the shadows to reveal her wearing a white bump-hugging wedding gown.
Gossip site TMZ reported back in February that one of Cardi’s staffers told the Super Bowl event organizers that the Love and Hip Hop star was 3-4 months pregnant
The dad is her long time boyfriend, Offset, one third of the rap group Migos.
Since then, Cardi’s team has been excellent about shielding the star from paparazzi until she decided to make her baby news on her own terms like last night’s performance.
Just last Friday, Cardi, who also is referred to as Bartier, evaded questions about her pregnancy in an interview with US Weekly when she essentially replies that her fans should listen to her album.
That’s right! We respect a celeb who takes control of her own narrative!
Congrats! This will be her first child but Offset’s 4th. He has three children from previous relationships.
