Top Entertainment Stories of 2018

Image Credit:  WPA Pool

It seems like 2018 was the year of big moments in entertainment.  From box office hits to celebrity engagements, this was definitely a year of highs -and some lows- for the entertainment industry.  Here are a few of the biggest headlines we saw in 2018.

The Royal Wedding

One of the biggest stories of 2018 was the royal union of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.  The British prince and the American actress tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel on May 19th, with an estimated 1.9 billion viewers tuning in around the world.  You would think with that many people watching the couple would be nervous, but Megan and Harry looked happy, poised and gracious when entering and exiting the ceremony.  

The star-studded guest list was another reason so many people tuned in to watch the nuptials, with notable figures such as David and Victoria Beckham, James Corden, and even Sir Elton John turning out to the event.  A few months after the wedding came an exciting announcement- the couple is expecting their first child!

Kylie’s Surprise Baby Announcement

One of the most surprising stories in celebrity news this year was the birth of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s first daughter, Stormi.  Up until Stormi’s birth on February 1st, Kyle never confirmed that she was pregnant in the first place!

The announcement came in the form of a video posted to Kylie’s social media accounts on Superbowl Sunday, effectively overshadowing the big game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots.  Upon hearing the news, fans of both the reality TV star and the rapper took to social media to congratulate the happy couple, and the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan expressed their joy as well.

California Wildfires

Not every piece of news this year was positive.  In late 2018, wildfires began wreaking havoc up and down the state of California.  In addition to civilians, many celebrities were affected by the devastating fires, including Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler and Neil Young, who lost their homes in the Southern California fire.  

Many celebrities came out to show their support during these hard times, and Gerard Butler hosted a star-studded fundraising event with a guest list including Sean Penn, Robin Thicke, Cindy Crawford, and many more famous faces.  Although the California wildfires devastatingly destroyed thousands of homes, many communities have already started to rebuild, thanks to generous donations from civilians and celebrities alike.

A Bachelor Engagement

If you were one of the 7.8 million people who tuned into the Bachelor season 22 finale on March 5th, you know that Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to Becca K…. and then dumped her on live TV to be with Lauren B.  While the plot twist certainly made for good TV, viewers were outraged at the heartlessness of Arie’s on-screen breakup.

However, being publicly dumped ended up working in Becca’s favor, as she was announced the new Bachelorette on After the Final Rose.  Since then, Arie and Lauren have announced that they plan to get married in January 2019 and are actually expecting a baby in June! As for Becca, the Minnesota native is happily engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen, whom she met on The Bachelorette!

With how wild 2018 has been, 2019 is expected to be just as big for the entertainment industry.

New movies, music from top 40 singers, and even some pregnancy announcements are sure to take the media by storm in 2019, so be sure to look out for what’s to come!

Celebrity Dads Celebrating Father’s Day For First Time

It’s Father’s Day weekend and a few celebrity dads who became fathers for the first time will be enjoying their first celebratory holiday Morrow. This list includes:

John Stamos waited until his 50s to become a dad. The Full House star and wife Caitlin McHugh welcomed son Billy in April

Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian welcomed daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. with his wife Serena Williams this year.

Also, rock star Enrique Iglesias and his wife Anna Kournikova quietly welcomed twins, his first children, after keeping the entire pregnancy secret.

Rapper Travis Scott and his girlfriend also kept their pregnancy under wraps until the end when he and Kylie Jenner become parents to daughter Stormi this February.

Reality TV star, game show host and recording artist Ray J and his wife Princess Love welcomed their first child, daughter Melody Love, together.

 

Kylie Jenner joins Long List of Celebs Who Don’t Show Their Babies Faces Online; Here’s Why

I saw a few reports about how makeup mogul and reality TV star Kylie Jenner has selected to stop showing her daughter Stormi’s face on social media after a few mean trolls left nasty comments about the infant.

As Celebrity Baby Scoop reported, “fans noticed that Stormi’s face was hidden and one follower, in particular, noted that she had ‘cut her baby out’, Jenner replied, ‘Yeah I cut my baby out. I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now.'”

Reportedly, she was excited to share her baby with the world but has had to retreat amidst the mean trolls, and her beau and Stormi’s dad Travis Scott is doing the same, only showing her tiny Nikes in a recent Snap Story.

I cannot say I blame her. One of this blog’s most viewed post is about Aoki Lee, the brilliant daughter of Russell Simmons and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kimora Lee Simmons, who avoids posting photos of her face on her own Instagram page, and how I believe it stems from nasty comments from the public about her looks.

The harsh critique from the public probably explains why Beyonce famously shielded her daughter Blue Ivy‘s face when she shared photos of her during her infancy to toddler years, and Kelly Rowland for the first year of her son’s life as well.

If you follow actress Zoe Saldana‘s social media, you will see that she was telling t to share a photo of her twin boys, Cy and Bowie and their baby brother either but has recently.

Over the pond, singer and TV presenter Rochelle Humes features many snaps of her daughters on Instagram but none of her face.

Another one of this blog’s bumpwatch alums Keisha Knight-Pulliam also refuses to show her daughter Ella Grace’s face on social media.

Then there are the other extremes who don’t show their children’s faces at all, like Kerry Washington, Eva Mendes, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively until recently.

The fans demand it, and many fuss about being denied the chance to gawk at their babies, as if it their right like these who commented under one of Knight-Pulliam’s pics.

And those who do share like Tia Mowry and Solange Knowles have found themselves having to snap back and put mean trolls in their place who called both their sons ugly, as recently as a few years ago.

These reactions prove why it is not a bad idea to keep something private.

Yellow, Gold and Celestial Beings at Met Ball 2018 Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

So the annual fundraising gala to mark the opening of the new Spring exhibit at The Metropolitan Gallery of Art in New York City went down last night.

As with this event every years, guests are asked to come dressed according to the theme of the new exhibit: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination. This year’s official hosts were Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Amal Clooney (above in Richard Quinn) and Donatella Versace (who dressed a lot of the attendees this year)

With a theme like that not only do you expect some backlash at what could be expected as a parade of sacrilegiousness, but you sorely expect some interpretations of Angels, the Virgin Mary, the Pope and Cardinals! They all were there last night too.

We just cover the moms and other celeb women we have frequently covered starting with two moms-to-be:  Homeland star Claire Danes who is expecting her second child with husband Hugh Dancy and rapper and reality TV star Cardi B who is expecting her first child with her fiance rapper Offset.

Danes wore a custom floor-length empire waist Marni precious duchesse  red, magenta and caramel color block gown paired with Marni Monile handbag  and multicolour platform sandals.

Cardi looked regal in a custom golden bejeweled white Moschino gown. She was accompanied to the event by designer Jeremy Scott though her fiancé was there with the other two members of his group, Migos.

Of our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, we noticed a few trends within the theme.

Gold was one. Kerry Washington in a gorgeous floor-length Ralph Lauren dress with her afro serving as a halo! Evan Rachel Wood, Kim Kardashian-West in Versace and Irina Shayk.

We saw structure, ornateness and royal crimson in Solange‘s Iris Van Harper ensemble, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez‘s spectacular Balmain modern take on Joan of Arc and Scarlett Johanssson

Yellow was a prevalent theme and color and everyone wearing it last night looked stunning including Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren, Huma Abedin and Gabrielle Union in Prabal Gurung dress, Tasaki jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch.

Anne Hathaway went with volume in her  Valentino gown which she paired did James Banks earrings, a The Code bracelet and Jimmy Choo heels.

Meanwhile, Gisele Bundchen did old Hollywood glam but in an environmentally friendly way by working with Versacd to repurpose an old dress.

“Thank you @versace for working so hard to make me an eco dress. The fabric and lining used are both 100% organic silk ecologically dyed, the threads are 100% organic cotton and everything is certificated as GOTS: Global Organic Textile Standard,” she captioned a photo of herself in the dress before heading out to the ball.

Kylie Jenner made her first official official red carpet appearance in a black velvet Alexander Wang gown with Chopard jewelry with her beau rapper Travis Scott since the two welcomed their first child together, daughter Storming

Uma Thurman was accompanied to the event by Maya Hawke, her daughter with Ex Ethan Hawke and  donned a white Gabriela Hearst dress, Giampiero Bodino jewelry, and Manolo Blahnik heels

Most people played it safe but understandingly so because they probably didn’t want to cross the line and have to dodge lightning bolts! ha!

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Welcome Their Daughter (UPDATED)

Congratulations to Khloe Kardashian on the birth of her first child, daughter, in a hospital outside Cleveland, Ohio this morning, TMZ reports.

The Good American Apparel co-founder announced her pregnancy with NBA‘s Cleveland Cavaliers star, Tristan Thompson, just last December after much speculation.

Since then, the Revenge Body on E! host has been sharing a lot about her pregnancy experience through her personal app and website, from what’s inside her hospital bag to her pregnancy fitness and post-baby exercise routine.

The delivery comes on the heels of very public videos, suggesting that her beau since September 2016 was cheating on her with a woman in NY and a couple of other women at a hookah lounge outside DC last October. Neither Khloe, her family or Thompson have publicly addressed the reports.

Today, it was reported that the family is rallying around the youngest adult female Kardashian. (Her brother Rob Kardashian‘s daughter Dream Kardashian technically is the youngest Kardashian)

According to an insider to E! News:

the 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star went into labor on Wednesday. After her water broke, the reality star went into labor for “several hours,” per another source. She then delivered the baby at a Cleveland hospital Thursday morning. Thankfully, her mother, Kris Jenner, her sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, and her BFF, Malika Haqq, were all there for support.

“She labored with Kris all day on Wednesday,” the first insider said.

The first insider also said the baby’s father, Tristan Thompson, was there for the birth. The Cleveland Cavaliers player had a game against the New York Knicks in Ohio on Wednesday.

“He wants to spend as much time with the baby as he can,” the first insider added.

The birth came days after videos of Thompson kissing and being intimate with other women surfaced online. The second source told E! News Khloe is “distraught” over the allegations but is focusing on the baby. While the aforementioned source said Khloe wants the baby to have a relationship with the father, the insider also said she and Thompson are not on good terms. Khloe also reportedly plans to head back to Los Angeles as soon as possible and raise the child there.

The new baby will have plenty of cousins: in addition to Dream, whose mom is Blac Chyna (real name Angela Renee White), North, Saint and Chicago West (daughters and son of Kim Kardashian-West and husband Kanye West); Stormi Webster (daughter of her half-sister Kylie Jenner and her hip hop star boyfriend Travis Scott, real name Jacques Webster); and Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick (daughter and sons of Kourtney Kardashian and her ex Scott Disick)

The baby’s arrival was showered at a lavish pink baby shower earlier this year.

Congrats to Khloe and we are thinking and praying for a healthy recovery and that she overcomes this very stressful situation.

The baby also has a half-brother, Thompson’s 1-year-old son Prince from a previous relationship with Jordan Craig, who is first cousin to our other Bumpwatch alum, Eniko  Parrish Hart.

Kylie Jenner Just Shared a Close Up Photo of Stormi Webster and She’s Gorgeous!

It was a week after make up mogul and  reality TV star Kylie Jenner complained about not using Snapchat much anymore that the social media app’s stock to fell more than 7 percent (a loss of $1.3 billion in market value).  The youngest of the Jenner/Kardashian clan  has redeemed her love for the video sharing platform (and hopefully some stock value) after sharing a sweet video of her gorgeous one month old baby girl, Stormi Webster on Snapchat on Friday, March 2.

The Life of Kylie star’s quick vid was captioned, “my pretty girl” while daddy, rapper Travis Scott, shared his own version of the same photo of baby sucking on a purple pacifier all bundled and snug in an off white furry blanket.

Stormi’s closeup pic debuted a few days after her cousin Chicago West appeared on Snapchat.  No wonder the fans of Kim Kardashian West and Jenner are feuding. These coincidentally-timed reveals give the fans a lot of fodder to play with.  It appears, along with Dream Kardashian, the girl cousins may grow and be close the same way Penelope Disick and North West are buddies. 

The sisters dismissed it in Twitter responses.

So fucking lame!!! Kim and I are saying how much it has changed and why the divide. We are sisters, best friends and most of all supporters of each other. Bizarre https://t.co/4PowCoMLsC

Kylie Jenner Hired a Nanny and Is Back to Sexy Selfies

Valentine’s Day 2018 is extra special for Kylie Jenner; She is celebrating the holiday of love with her littlest love

Two weeks ago, the 20-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians and social media star gave birth to a daughter, Stormi Webster, her and Travis Scott‘s first child. She announced the news on Instagram, marking her first confirmation that she had been pregnant, following multiple reports over the past few months. Kylie had also kept out of the spotlight during the later stages of her pregnancy. She has since resumed posting more regularly on social media and on Wednesday, Valentine’s Day, shared a mirror selfie of herself posing on the floor in a black sweatshirt and matching shorts and stiletto boots.

A post shared by Kylie ✨ (@kyliejenner) on

Kylie is “happy she can slowly emerge into the public again,” a source told E! News exclusively, saying, “Kylie is in a really good place right now, and is loving being a mom.”

“Her relationship with Travis has made huge strides since having baby Stormi, and they are back in a good place,” the source said. “Travis has been staying overnight at Kylie’s several times a week when he is not working or out of town and has also been giving Kylie her time to bond with the baby alone. Kylie is like a new person now; every move and every decision she makes, she takes Stormi into consideration. She is obsessed with her baby and the focus is all on Stormi.”

The source also said that she has had a lot of help with the baby from mom Kris Jenner and BFF Jordyn Woods and that “recently, Kylie hired a nurse/nanny to help her, which she didn’t think she was going to do at first.”

“All of her sisters are constantly checking in with her and coming over to the house to visit Stormi,” the source added. “Kylie asks for advice all the time. She did prepare for the baby with several specialists and took private classes so she was well-prepared beforehand.”

Before Kylie revealed Stormi’s name, many people speculated that her name was inspired by butterflies.

“When Travis and Kylie started dating, Kylie became obsessed with Travis’ song “Butterfly Effect”, and butterflies became ‘their thing’ to describe their relationship that was blossoming into something beautiful,” the source said. “Storm is somewhat related to the butterfly effect and that’s why they decided on the name.”

As for Kylie and Travis’ relationship, they are in no rush to walk down the aisle.

“Kylie is not engaged, however that ring she has been wearing is from Travis,” the source said. “He gave it to her when she was first pregnant and it has several emerald-cut diamonds. They are in no rush to get married or even engaged, and Stormi is their only priority right now.”

The source also talked about Kylie’s post-pregnancy health regimen.

“Her sisters have tried to get her to workout with them but she has never been a fan of it,” the source said. “Since having Stormi, she is still not super focused on the baby weight, and knows that majority of the weight will come off naturally. She has been eating healthier but she isn’t very strict like her sisters.”

Meanwhile, Stormi has been showered with gifts. Kylie had showcased many of Stormi’s outfits and shoes in her nursery in a pregnancy and baby reveal video.

“Kylie thinks it’s so fun to dress her every morning, and loves organizing Stormi’s baby closet,” the source said. “She has received SO many gifts from friends and family members, and Stormi basically takes up a huge chunk of her house now.”

Kylie Jenner to Become a Mommy Blogger, Join Fashion Blogger Baby Boom

When Kylie Jenner released her YouTube video announcing that she gave birth, a few people nudged established YouTubers because the 20-year old brand new mom blew them out the water by getting 34 million and counting views within 24 hours of the release.

“To Our Daughter” already has 28 millions views, and is the number one trending video. Even veteran YouTubers are bowing down to her success.

no pressure to youtubers but kylie released a video that’s decent in length, probably has good retention, and all it took was a secret baby

She has also been rumored to transform her famous selfie make up brand and become a mommy blogger.

“As soon as the baby is born, she will make an announcement and introduce the baby to her fans. She will also address the fact that she went ‘dark’ on social media and in the public,” a source which accurately predicted it all told Entertainment Tonight “Yes, she will release a photo, and yes, she will acknowledge the baby. She’s excited to continue to be her authentic self, and that will soon mean being a mother and sharing that with her fans.”

And apparently, if this is true, the Kylie Cosmetics founder she will be part of a trend of former beauty influencers and bloggers who have recently given birth and may be considering shifting the focus of their presence to center on parenting and mommying.

Kylie Jenner Announces She Has Given Birth To a Daughter

The speculation and anticipation is over. Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of the Jenner-Kardashian clan, announced today that she has given birth to her first child, a daughter, with boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott (real name Jacques Webster.)

The makeup mogul and reality  TV star left a long heartfelt note on her Instagram account with the news  about the February 1st birth:

“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” she captioned the share “I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”

The Kylie Cosmetics founder continued:

“Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life-changing experience I’ve had in my entire life and I’m actually going to miss it,” she said. “I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing. I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst! Thank you for understanding.”

This is the first child for them both. Her mom, boyfriend and sisters were seen leaving Mt Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California where she gave birth recently.

She posted a video documenting the experience on her YouTube Channel:

From E!:

In January, a source told E! News that Kylie was nervous about giving birth but was “counting down the days” and had “everything ready to go,” adding that her mom Kris Jenner had been especially helpful with the baby’s nursery and “getting everything set up.” Her family, the insider said, “are all ready to meet the baby.”

In mid-November 2017, it seemed like the mom-to-be hosted a floral, pajama brunch-themed baby shower, complete with “hundreds of pink roses that looked like a wedding,” one source told E! News. “There were pink rose petals scattered around the pool and the posts to the tent were all wrapped in pink roses. There was also a big wall of pink flowers and a little stage.”

In January a source told E! News that Kylie was “nervous” to give birth but “excited” to become a mom.

“Kylie is nervous about giving birth,” the insider explained at the time, but said her sisters were “helping calm her fears and letting her know what to expect.”

The source added that despite any nerves, Kylie is “so excited to finally be a mom and have the baby in her arms.”

Congrats!
