And Baby Makes 4 For Tia Mowry Hardrict Who Just Welcomed A Baby Girl

Congrats to Sister, Sister alum Tia Mowry Hardrict on the birth of her second child, a daughter.

The Tia and Tamera reality TV show star announced the news on her Instagram page on Sunday.  The baby girl, whom she conceived after bouts of endometriosis and other fertility problems,  arrived Saturday at 10:29 a.m. She weighed 6 lbs., 4 oz., and measured 19.8 inches long.

“Feeling grateful and blessed as we welcome our little baby girl into the world!” the couple wrote in the caption, going on to add, “We are in heaven 🙏🏽.”

The new arrival is the second child with Hardrict for 38-year old The Game alum. The couple of 10-years are also parents to 6-year old son Cree Taylor.

the spouses of 10 years also have a 6½-year-old son named Cree Taylor.

Inside Tia Mowry’s Bohemian Farmtable Baby Shower

This weekend actress and author Tia Mowry Hardrict and her husband Cory Hardrict celebrated the impending arrival of their second child, a daughter, at a Bohemian and “whimsical” themed Farm table baby shower at the Il Pastaio restaurant in Beverly Hills.

The Sister, Sister and The Game alum enlisted the help of celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss  who incorporated pink florals, wooden place mats, and twinkling lights at the intimate evening affair.

The mom-to-be of the hour wore a coral lace maxi dress to the event also attended by her 6 1/2 year old son Cree Taylor, her sister Tamera Mowry-Housley, and brothers Taj  and Tavior.

“I’m literally still on a high from my baby shower,” the Instant Mom alum told PEOPLE about her March 31st celebration. “We chose the boho theme mainly because my husband and I have been looking at a couple of names and have been narrowing down. And we felt like her name fit that theme…So we wanted to give some sort of tribute to her already. Cory and I also love the boho styles and everything. It made a lot of sense. The baby shower was in theme with her name.”

 

They didn’t share what the baby’s name will be but did reveal that her initials will be CTH, same as her son’s.

“I learned my lesson, so many people have so many opinions and this is kind of just between you and your husband,” she told the celebrity site. “I’m definitely going to wait, but we did play a game where guests can guess the baby’s name. And some of them were pretty close.”

“It was so incredibly beautiful. It was family and friends, it was all intimate. Whenever Cory and I throw a party, we always love it to be intimate,” Mowry-Hardrict explains. “We don’t really look for really big rooms, we look for rooms where people when they sit down they’re gonna have to talk to each other. It’s all about the experience. I’m such a nurturer at heart and it’s like, ‘Yes I want to have a great time,’ but it’s all about everyone else celebrating this amazing moment. Everyone getting in on this celebration so it was full of love and full of tears.”

Tia revealed that her husband was instrumental for including some of the surprises at the event.

“My husband surprised me, I had no idea. He had Kenny Lattimore come and sing. It was special for me because Kenny Lattimore sang at our wedding. He sang ‘For You’ which is the song I walked down the aisle to,” she says of the special song that also commemorated their 10-year anniversary, which is April 20. “Cory wanted to surprise me with his present. I walked into the room and gasped like, ‘What is happening here?’ and just sang the song. There was not a dry eye in the room. It was just so amazing. It was just wonderful.”

The event was made even more special because of the struggles the couple had to conceive their second child.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to have a second child, and it’s been over seven years since my first pregnancy… I put it off, but I did want to have another child,” she shared to PEOPLE earlier. “I didn’t let my infertility issues define me or define what my goals were and what I wanted out of life. We did try for a long time. It was hard. But I didn’t give up.”

Her husband Cory recently opened up to ESSENCE about his undying love for his pregnant wife:

“I could go on forever talking about my wife [but] I will make sure that I will always do anything that she wants and needs at the drop of a finger to make sure she’s happy… It’s just like how I live my everyday life. [Even] when y’all don’t see that, that’s still what happens in the house. I’m rubbing her feet, running her a bath, doing whatever I can to make sure she’s okay.”

Altogether now….Awwwww!

Cory and Tia got engaged in 2006, married two years later and welcomed son Cree in 2011, before her sister Tamera had her first child, and was still a newly wed.

We know Tamera gave birth to children, 4-year old Aden John Tanner and 2-year old Ariah Talea, with husband, FOX News Correspondent Adam Housley while Tia, presumably was trying to expand her family as well.

As far back as 2013, Tia has expressed interest in having a second baby. “It’s something that we’re talking about on a daily basis, so…we’ll see!” she told E! News at the time.

It’s been a long time coming and perhaps she will share some of her journey later with the public… or not! We’re not entitled to know. (smile)

Congrats! We are so thrilled and happy for this news! Both are our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.

What’s Up with Mags Making Celeb Kids Models Look This Adult?

halycon kids

Halycon Kids, a quarterly magazine for preteen and teen readers which focuses on  fashion, art and DIY, has several celebrity kids models on the cover of its Fall 2016 issue. We love the pop of red featured boldly in the spread and the gold, silver and black Michael Kors kicks they are all wearing.

D’Lila, Jessie, and Chance Combs, whose parents are Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Kim Porter, are wearing a dress by Tago Look and shoes by Michael Kors.

Sean “P.Diddy” Combs‘ and his ex Kim Porter‘s children, twin 9-year old daughters Jessie and D’Lila Combs are featured in Newspaper print dresses , as is his daughter with ex Sarah Chapman, 10-year old Chance Combs in a cute crimson bubble dress with royal sleeves.

Chance Combs, daughter of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Sarah Chapman, is wearing a dress by Junona and shoes by Michael Kors.

Cali Dream, the daughter of rapper The Game is also featured in a cute dress with a tu-tu skirt and is the only one who looks her age, albeit she too is toting a pound of excess weave on her head.  Don’t get me wrong. I think they all look very cute, albeit very serious and very adult. Maybe a little too adult.

 

Harper Tillman, daughter of Kiki and Travares Tillman, a retired NFL player is also on the cover and is used to being made up because she is a professional child model who walks in many fashion shows. Tilman is often dressed up and made up like a little adult in many mag spreads. Maybe I’m an old folgie and I am paranoid over the existence of pedophiles who search the internet for kids images but something about how grown these children look in these photos make me uncomfortable.  I mean, Harper looks twice her age in most of her pics like these:

Disney channel actress Skai Jackson  is also featured in the magazine and by the looks of her Instagram page, it appears that she has become the latest fave for magazine editors and is getting lots of coverage, which is really cool. She started to get wide spread popularity beyond the kids’ TV scene when she took on rapper Iggy Azalea in a famous Twitter beef this past May.  Before that, she was featured often in a meme.

Since shutting Iggy down on Twitter, she’s the new teen “it” girl and has been featured on Paper magazine, Teen Vogue, SeventeenYSB Now and of course, Halycon Kids and many others. She’s riding high and that’s a wonderful thing! But still…..

Fastest growing US baby names reflect changing population: Daleyza, Jayceon & Jurnee

The big news from the United States Social Security Administration‘s list of most popular American names this week isn’t just that for the first time after 14 years, Jacob finally got dethroned as the #1 boy name.  Nope! Beyond the fact that Noah clawed to number 1 this year is what can be learned from the fastest climbing names: that they reflect the changing demographic in the US.

This year, the name Daleyza jumped from number 3,130 on the list to No. 585!  Daleyza is the name of the young daughter of Larry Hernandez, a singer who stars in a mun2 Spanish-language reality TV show called Larrymania.
Hmmm.
Population statisticians predict that by 2050, the Hispanic/Latino-American population, Asian or of two or more races will be the majority of the 17 and under population in the United States.

“In the past, most parents were picking from a pretty well-defined set of names,” Laura Wattenberg, creator of Babynamewizard.com said. “Literally for hundreds of years, the English royal names dominated. You had John and Mary and James and Elizabeth.”

Today, she said, “we get names everywhere.”

RealityTV is a hot spot for picking names. 

For boys, Jayceon, a name of two hip hop artists, jumped 845 spots to #206 on the list. Popular rapper “The Game” real name is Jayceon and was featured on a VH1 reality TV show for a few seasons.
“Names have more widely become seen as a personal brand, a statement of individual style and personality, and so people are looking for a name that’s different from what other people have,” Pamela Redmond Satran, co-founder of Nameberry.com  told AP. “In the 1950s, everybody was looking to blend in.”
Among the other top risers for girls: Marjorie, Lennon and Jurnee. Jurnee Smollett-Bell is an actress who starred in the TV show Friday Night Lights and currently stars in Parenthood on ABC.
Among the other top risers for boys: Milan, Atlas, Jayse and Duke.
