It’s been a minute since we dedicated a post to celebrity bumps and new baby arrivals.
Congrats are in order for singer Meaghan Trainer and her husband, who welcomed their first child.

Kelly Rowland, Milla Jovovich, Vanessa Lachey, Alicia Keys, Terri Seymour and Liv Tyler showed off the first photos of their newborns in social media and magazines.
There have been a lot of awe-worthy moments of late as many of the celebrity moms we followed while pregnant have been sharing super adorable pics of their newborns in social media.
Gone is the trend when magazines paid top dollar upwards to millions for the first photos of babies born to celebrities. The economy and the advent of social media have dried up the market. Most celebs Instagram or tweet first photos these days.
Not all, however.
For example, new mom singer Kelly Rowland previously had shared obscure and behind the head shots of her newborn son Titan with manager-hubby Tim Witherspoon on social media. Fans can see Titan’s face on the cover and inside the April edition of Essence magazine, on shelves now.
For others, Instagram and Twitter are still the top choice for sharing. Yet, they are still choosing to shield their babies faces perhaps because they plan a full reveal later (in a magazine) or to avoid the sometimes critical and biting commentary from commenters.
Beyonce, early on, only showed photos of her daughter Blue Ivy from the back and so did British singer and TV host Rochelle Humes who shares plenty photos of her daughter Alaia-Mai with her ex-boyband hubby Marvin Humes but only from the back as well
Vanessa Lachey chose Easter to share a photo on Instagram of her second child, daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, who is now 3-months old. She wore an adorable white knit rabbit hat and matching bottoms with the cutest bunny tail. It’s not a face pic so there’s still a chance we may see her in a mag soon too. Nick Lachey and Vanessa welcomed their daughter on Jan. 5. She joined big brother Camden John, 2.
Liv Tyler welcomed her son with boyfriend David Garner in February and recently shared a photo on Twitter of herself staring at her son lovingly while holding him. The Leftovers star is also mom to son Milo with ex-husband Royston Langdon.
Model Milla Jovovich also announced the birth of her second daughter Dashiel Edan Jovovich-Anderson via social media. The Resident Evilactress and her director-movie producer husband Paul W. S. Anderson welcomed their second child on Wednesday, April 1. They are also parents to 7-year old daughter Ever Gabo.
New mom Terri Seymour too took to Instagram to announcer her daughter’s arrival. The Extra! TV host who is married to 24-year old Brit model Clark Mallon welcomed her first child on on March 9 in Los Angeles and joins the moms having their first baby 40 and over club.
Finally, singer-songwriter-activist Alicia Keys choseInstagram as well to show off a family photo of her son as well.
Mom-to-be Kelly Rowland goes bare in her photo shoot for her new Elle.com piece.
The gorgeous singer and former Destiny’s Child group member opens up in the cover piece to the spread. In it, she explains how perplexed she is that people give celebrity women flak for posing nude while pregnant.
“I don’t know why they would get flack. It’s really—I won’t say amazing—it’s Godmazing [laughs] watching your body carry a human,” she said, adding: “I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that? The body should be celebrated.”
The first-time mom-to-be with her husband Tim Witherspoon says she is excited to meet her son.
“I can’t wait until he gets here,” she tells Elle.com “I just have a couple more weeks. I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part.”
She also expresses how staying fit, but modifying moves with her trainer Jeanette Jenkins, was important to her.
“I would tell my trainer ‘this move doesn’t feel right,t and we’d modify it,” the “Motivation” singer said.
“I still walk two miles everyday…I still work out. It’s important to me.”
On how she would balance life in the spotlight with a child, Rowland says she plans to play it by ear.
In a recent Instagram photo she shared, mom -to-be crooner Kelly Rowland is seen cradling her bump as she prepare for the arrival of her son.
Rowland, who married Tim Witherspoon, announced her pregnancy in the cutest way earlier this summer, posting a photo of tiny sneakers near her husband’s Air Jordan Nike high tops with the caption, “Stuntin like my daddy”.
Newly wed Kelly Rowland shared a photo of herself yesterday doing prenatal Yoga on her instagram account. The Motivation singer and former Destiny’s Child band member and her husband, music manager Tim Witherspoon, married this May in an intimate ceremony in Costa Rica on May 10.
She announced her pregnancy on June 10 by sharing a photo of her husband’s black Air Jordan high top sneakers near a pair of tiny sneakers, with the caption, “I’ll be stunting like my daddy.” It could be a hint that the songstress, who is currently working on Pepsi‘s Beats of the Beautiful Game World Cup album, is having a baby boy. Who knows as baby girls wear Jordans too.
Speaking of which, some are declaring Rowland’s share as a reaction to all the conspiracy theorists who still do not believe Beyonce was actually pregnant with her first child and used a surrogate and a fake baby bump. What can we say? Haters are gonna hate.
Congratulations to singer Kelly Rowland who announced her pregnancy in the cutest way today.
She posted anInstagram photo of a pair of Jordan Nike tennis shoes near a pair of tiny ones with the caption, “I’ll be stuning like my daddy.”
awwwwwww!!!!!!!! So cute!
The Destiny’s Child singer married her manager and boyfriend Tim Witherspoon just last month in an intimate wedding in Costa Rica. In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly on June 10, the songstress said her wedding was simply “perfect.”
