2019 MTV VMAs: Moms on the Red Carpet

mtv vma red carpet moms

If you’ve followed this blog for the past 10 years, you know I enjoy spotting on Red Carpets the celebrity women who’ve been spotlighted here before when they were expecting a baby.

Last night, on August 26, the MTV Video Music Awards were held in New Jersey for the first time at the Prudential Center.

One of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Cardi B won for Best Hip Hop video for her song “Money” (she was nominated for Artist of the Year too but lost to Ariana Grande). She was also nominated for Best Pop video for “Please Me” with Bruno Mars and Best Dance and Best Power Anthem for “Taki Taki” and “Wish Wish,” respectively.

One other featured mama from the past Alicia Keys was nominated for the Best R&B video for the video for her song “Raise a Man” but lost to former Fifth Harmony girl band member Normani.

The show caters to younger audiences so I have to admit I’ve had to watch the nominees right before publshing this post. Shame. lol In any event, congrats to the winners and shout out to the moms who looked fab on the red carpet including:

Adriana Lima in Sally LaPointe with Chopard jewelry and Christian Louboutin heels.

Monica in Libertine

Heidi Klum in Nedo with Judith Leiber handbag and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

Blac Chyna in Attico

Whitney Port in Balmain

Lil Kim

2018 MTV VMAs: Cardi B’s Baby Kultura Fake Out & Red Carpet Trends

Last night was the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York, New York City on August 20.

Quite a few of our Bellyitch  Bumpwatch alums showed up and/or showed out with draw-dropping performances, on-stage antics, on the red carpet risks and MoonMan winning!

Jennifer Lopez gave an electrifying performance of a medley of her hits over the years before accepting the Video Vanguard Award, the first person of Latino heritage to win the coveted prize.

Cardi B surprised the audience by opening the show cradling what looked like a baby on stage

Many thought they would get the first glimpse of her infant girl Kultura with husband rapper Offset, but she later revealed it was a trophy.

Womp womp womp!!

Later in the evening, the “I Like It” rapper won three of several awards she was nominated for, Song of the Summer for “I Like It featuring Bad Bunny & J Balvin; Best new artist and Best Collaboration for “Dinero” Jennifer Lopez’s song with DJ Khaled Artist of the year.

She was nominated for Best hip hop, Artist of the Year, Best Latin album, also for Dinero and Song of the Year for “Finesse” with Bruno Mars

Beyoncé’s song “APES**T” with her husband Jay Z as part of their duo The Carters won a few technical awards for Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction though that song was also nominated for Best collaboration, Best Direction, Best Choreography,  Best Hop Hop, Best Editing And Video of the Year.

On the red carpet, JLo and Cardi showed out along with other alums Kylie Jenner and Blake Lively, coming through with the pant suit again.

MTV Reality show and other Bellyitch alums Heidi Montag, Nicky Hilton, Nicole “Snooki” Palozzi and Audrina Partridge graces the red carpet also.

One fashion trend that stood out to me was the inptricate sheet organza I saw on singing sisters and Beyonce protege Chloe X Haile, comedic actress Tiffany Hadish and British singing phenom  Rita Ora.

 

And finally, winning the sex kitten awards: a chaps and chisel abs donning Teyana Taylor, Blac Chyna and red cat woman Amber Rose. 

Jersey Shore Grown Up: JWoww welcomes Second Child

lavalles and mathews

Congrats to former MTV reality TV star Jennifer “JWoww” Farley on the birth of her second child with husband Roger Mathews.

The couple named the new arrival whey welcomed on Thursday, May 5, Greyson Valor Matthews. She announced the news via Instagram, the way all celebrities relay news these days.

“So blessed to welcome our precious son,” Farley captioned the photo. “He arrived healthy at 6:03pm tonight and the most beautiful part is Roger got to deliver him with our doctor. Our family is complete!”

Greyson joins 21-month old big sister Meilani Alexandras.

Rogers Instagrammed a photo of himself participating in the delivery.

Yesterday at 6:03 pm (with the help of my assistant Dr. Rezai and my wonderful staff) I delivered our 7lb 2ounce son Greyson Valor Mathews into the world. Moments after my wife @jwoww water broke Dr. Rezai looked at me and said “Scrub up Stat ! You’re gonna deliver your son.” Ok so I made up the “Scrub up Stat” part but In my head he said it. Life is only gonna offer you opportunities like this once so you better capitalize on it. I would describe the experience like doing 3 back to back combat tours in Iraq while winning the Nobel Peace Prize simultaneously. What an amazing experience to literally witness the miracle of life from the very onset. He’s our little man, our perfect bundle of joy, the baby brother to an anxious little girl ready to met her Bubba. What a ride this thing called life is ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for the love and support for our newest chapter. We are blessed and we pray health and happiness finds you in reading this.

JWoww and her bff Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi grew up to be responsible adults after living their summers full of debauchery and drunkedness in front of the cameras as stars of the long-running MTV show “Jersey Shore”, which followed a group of friends that vacationed on the shore each summer.

Palozzi is a married (to Jionni LaValle) mom to a daughter  Giovanna Marie and son Lorenzo Dominic too and the two host a web series together about the reality of motherhood.

World Breastfeeding Week: Hilara Baldwin shares Tender Moment

 

hilaria breastfeeding bellyitchblog.com

Another World Breastfeeding Week is drawing to a close and as committed and longtime supporters of breastfeeding, we would remiss, as a blog community, if we didn’t dedicate a few posts to celebrate nature’s nourishment source for new life. Better late than never, right?

And to start, we are shouting out celebrity fitness pro and our two-time Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Hilaria Baldwin for sharing a tender nursing moment with her new son to her followers on Instagram yesterday.

The yoga fanatic, who is married to veteran actor Alec Baldwin, captioned this sweet photo:

Rafa’s favorite spot ?. There is no one right way to feed our babies, but this week marks #nationalbreastfeedingweek and I would like to extend my support to mothers who have taken this path ?. In the end, regardless of our methods, #AllMommiesUnite and whatever way we love and nurture our children is beautiful, perfect and inspiring ❤️

As we’ve always advocated, it is important for influential people in the public eye to encourage new mothers, who do not face too many physical or psychological impediments or difficulty, to breastfeed and to do it as long as possible. What better way than to open up with their own special moments with their little ones. Very nice!

Earlier this week, we mentioned seeing Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi on the Coco and Ice talk show and was also heartwarmed to hear that she is still nursing her almost one year old daughter Giovanna Marie LaValle! sweet!

Coco Announces on her New Talk Show She is 5 months Preggers with Baby Girl Chanel

ice and coco

Ice and Coco debuted today and during it, the blonde bombshell wife of gansta rapper turned actor ICE-T (Law & Order) revealed that she is 21 weeks pregnant (over 5 months).

The reality show couple of the now-defunct ICE loves Coco also shared that they are expecting a little girl who they have decided to name Chanel.

The premiere of the new daily talk show also featured a couple of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.

tamar and ice and coco bellyitchblog.com

Tamar Braxton-Herbert and her husband Vince Herbert stopped by as did Nicole “Snooki’ Pollizzi who talked about how motherhood changed her old partying ways.

❤️This cute lil ??? mama @snookinic ALWAYS a good time?

A photo posted by @tamarbraxtonher on





Who can believe this woman is 5 months preggers!?! Wow!

 

I am happy for them but a little peeved to hear Coco sort of dismiss the salient advice OB/GYNs and other medial and fertility specialists give to women who are advancing in age.

Cocoa said, “a lot of people ask what took us so long [to conceive]” and it’s because I wanted to wait, she said, mentioning that she wanted her companies to be successful and saw herself being pregnant at age 35. That was the magic number and she wanted to have a baby by then.

“People put things in your ear,” Coco said about all the warning society gives to women of child-bearing age.

“I’ve been on the pill for 17 years and they scare you, they told me I should freeze my eggs,” she added. “I called my gynecologists, she said ‘get off the pill and it would take a year for your body to regulate’… and it took a month and a half.”

ICE jumped in with his machismo humor to say, that he could “make a baby like a brick wall.”

“I’m so blessed,” she concluded. “Baby, I’m so blessed”

Congrats to them but the reality is that not so many women are fortunate. Fertility struggles are real and people put things in your ear on the odd case that you aren’t among the fortunate ones like Coco and Ice who could easily conceive.

Finally, those women not being able to conceive doesn’t mean they are less “blessed.”

Good for them both! Congrats!

Reality TV Moms who went from obscurity to Business Moguls

VH1.com  assembled a list of reality TV stars who were relatively unknown before and were able to parlay their appearances on docu series and become business moguls.  Moms dominated the list which included many current and past Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms!

Bethenny Frankel‘s Skinny Girl major distribution and buyout deal, Snooki‘s New York Times Best seller appearances, Kristin Cavallari‘s shoe line and subsequent E! TV hosting show and of course Kourtney and Kim Kardashian with all their Kardashian gold!

It left of the dozens or so who have launched websites, clothing, shoes and make up lines, books and videos. We’re thinking, Phaedra Parks with her multiple ventures like exercise DVDs and all the other housewives from various series,  VH1 own’s Love and Hip Hop stars Rasheeda and Yandy Smith, and several others who have clothing companies.

But still, that says a lot about the hustle of moms who were relatively unknown before and managed to use their stardom on a TV show and parlay that into lucrative business ventures for their families.

Yay moms! Happy Mother’s Day!

How Having a Baby Can Revive your Career in Hollywood

In 2011, Mommyish’s did a post about so-called “DList” celebrities who got more famous after having a baby. Actually, it reminded me of a piece we did earlier, in January that year that writer and TV personality Teresa Strasser wrote for us, “Top Celebrity Baby Exploiters of 2010“.

In that piece, Strasser  exalted about how pregnancy can easily launch a reality TV cast member into the public spotlight and on the cover of the top gossip mags. 

That was also the year for the 20th anniversary of Demi Moore’s iconic Vanity Fair cover which we’ve determined was also the start of the public’s infectious interest in celebrity pregnancies.
And it’s gone even more mainstream in recent years.
While watching back episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (again late as usual), I noted Kim Kardashian stating that since she got pregnant, the paparazzi were even more ferocious and viral in search of pics.  So true, as we’ve blogged before here, Kim, Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, Snooki and Beyonce‘s respective pregnancies garnered the most stories written by traditional media and other outlets that do not usually cover celebrity parents and pregnancy. 
In year’s past, we’d say such media organizations and writers may have even looked down on gossip blogs and mags that “bumpwatched.”
Not anymore. They’re right here in the pepper pot with the US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, OK!, People, PopSugar, E!Online, CelebLaundry, Perez Hilton  and BellyitchBlog‘s of the world!
Yes, the Celebrity Bumpwatch Phenomenon is alive and thriving.
 Indeed!
