Christina Aguilera Bares Her Bump: Should You?

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Artsy baby bump photos have become nearly ubiquitous, ever since Demi Moore famously posed nude during one of her pregnancies on Vanity Fair. (They’ve become so ubiquitous, in fact, that “manternity” shots of guys in those classic baby bump poses are becoming a thing.) And Christina Aguilera is the latest celeb to bare her bump (and leave very little to the imagination) in a gorgeous photo shoot for V Magazine.

“As a woman, I’m proud to embrace my body through all stages of life, staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store,” she told V. And it’s clear that pregnancy has been very good to her and her body (or the PhotoShop gods have—I don’t see a single stretch mark).

Kudos to her for having the moxie to show it all off—I wouldn’t have had the courage to pose nude, even when I was 20 and not pregnant!

Tell us: Did you get baby bump shots done? And did you have the courage to pose nude to show off your pregnancy?

Gender Reveal! Kelly Rowland Is Having a…

Friday, August 1st, 2014

It’s going to be a boy for Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland—though she wasn’t quite ready to spill the beans on whether it was a boy or girl to the public!

In an interview on Fox, she accidentally referred to her baby as “he,” when talking about how spoiled he already is. And then finally, she just went ahead and said: “It, it’s…aw, f–k it! It’s a boy. It’s a boy!”

She’s not the only celeb who slipped and inadvertently shared their baby’s sex during an interview. Last year, Jessica Simpson famously let it slip that she was having a boy on Jimmy Kimmel Live, by saying: “The crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous.”

And Kelly Rowland already has a baby name picked out, though she didn’t spill the beans on what she and husband Tim Witherspoon picked. The only hint? “The dad picked out the name. It has to do with family,” she said. Maybe Timothy Jr.?

Celeb Baby Shower Bonanza: Snooki, Jwoww & Chelsea Clinton and More!

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Stars—they’re just like us! And that means that when there’s a baby on the way, they celebrate in a big way. Recently, Chelsea Clinton, Savannah Guthrie, Snooki, and Jwoww shared the details of their baby showers—how do they compare to your celebration?

They picked elaborate themes. Snooki’s shower featured a grand “Great Gatsby” theme, and she (and several other guests) sported fascinators and flapper-esque ensembles to fit with the party.

They invited the guys. Former President Bill Clinton and Chelsea’s husband Mark Mezvinsky both made appearances at Chelsea Clinton’s celebration.

They hired entertainment. Jwoww’s shower featured a drag queen emcee to keep the crowd entertained.

The gift opening happened elsewhere.Chelsea Clinton’s shower featured lots of celebrating, but the mom-to-be took home her bounty and opened the onesies and strollers in the privacy of her home.

They turned a “sprinkle” into a full-on fete. In the past, moms-to-be usually saved lavish showers for their first-born, with very small (or no) celebrations for future children. But perhaps Snooki’s part of a trend to celebrate every baby’s arrival. (And really, doesn’t every baby deserve a party?)

They planned a menu perfect for the mom-to-be. Chelsea Clinton’s gluten-free menu meant she could enjoy any of the goodies offered at the celebration.

They asked their guests to provide gifts for those who really need them. At Savannah Guthrie’s totally cute shower guests were asked to bring one book for her baby, and one to be donated for those who may have a harder time stocking their bookshelves. Because let’s face facts: Savannah can probably swing a pretty nice stroller.

Which Frozen Star is Expecting Baby #2?

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

And baby makes four! Frozen star Kristen Bell and her Parenthood-starring husband Dax Shepard are getting ready to add a little sister or brother for daughter Lincoln, now 15 months. The couple announced the news today to Entertainment Tonight.

“I can confirm that Kristen and Dax are expecting their second child and a sibling for Lincoln,” the rep says, according to Us Magazine. “The whole family is beyond excited.”

That’ll mean the pair have two kiddos under the age of two—which should be VERY exciting and busy for them. (No wonder Kristen has talked recently about scaling back her career a bit to spend time with her family—as anyone with two really young kids knows, it’s never a dull moment!) Hopefully, it won’t put the kibosh on a few projects that she’s talked about, including potentially reprising her role of Anna in a Broadway version of Frozen.

Is Hayden Panettiere Pregnant?!

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Hayden Panettiere Wladimir Klitschko Pregnant BabyIs she or isn’t she: That’s the question that has the Hollywood gossip ring buzzing.

The latest subject of the celebrity pregnancy rumor mill is Hayden Panettiere, as Us Weekly reports that the Nashville star is expecting. “Hayden is totally pregnant!” the magazine quotes an “insider” as saying.

This would be Baby No. 1 for the actress and her fiancé, boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

Though there has been no official word from the couple’s camp, back in May 2013, Panettiere revealed to Glamour magazine that she loved the idea of becoming a mom.

“I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother,” she said. “Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, ‘Your life ends—you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids.”

Panettiere, 24, and Klitschko, 38, became engaged in March 2013 after an on-and-off relationship since 2009. Whether or not she is pregnant, here’s wishing nothing but happiness to the couple! (Oh, and an adorable baby name, if the rumors turn out to be true.)
