Kardashian Baby Bump Comparison: Kourtney vs. Kris

Friday, August 8th, 2014

In honor of Throwback Thursday (and of the trend of recreating old family shots) reality star Kourtney Kardashian posted naked pictures of her sporting her first baby bump with boyfriend Scott Disick—and of her mom, Kris Jenner similarly posed from a decades-ago pregnancy.

It seems to be a hot trend amongst celebrity moms-to-be to pose for nude bump shots and share them with the world: Christina Aguilera just did it, and Demi Moore, Britney Spears, Cindy Crawford, and Jessica Simpson also showed it all, often splashed across a magazine cover.

But celebs are the only moms-to-be I know who are following this trend—I haven’t seen or heard of a single dare-to-bare bump shot amongst my entire mom cohort.

Tell us: Did you pose for a bare bump shot? And did you share it on your Twitter feed?

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?

Christina Aguilera’s Baby Shower Cake: Worst Trend Ever?!

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

I thought my baby shower pushed the envelope, because I had cookies in the shapes of dead rappers like Biggie and Tupac, and a cake decked with personalized mix tapes. (All in service of my twin shower’s ’90s hip-hop “It Takes Two” theme! Get it?!)

But Christina Aguilera took the baby shower envelope pushing a few steps farther—emphasis on the “pushing.”

At a co-ed shower for about 50 guests, the star reportedly had a cake decorated with the image of a woman giving birth on a rug, explicitly showing the baby’s head emerging from you-know-where. According to reports, the writing said, “Push Xtina, push!”

Can you think of anything more appetizing than that?!

Well, this is one baby shower trend not isolated to celebs like Christina—though I kind of wish it were. No, indeed, plenty of examples of the graphic cake theme are illustrated all over the Internet. Trust me. Just search for the hashtag (sorry) #vaginacake or check out Pinterest.

Shop for cute baby shower supplies!

Honestly? If I see pubic hair—or even its sugar representation—on my dessert plate, I’m sending it back. But in general, I am all for thinking outside the (ahem) box when it comes to mixing up staid, traditional events like baby showers.

I’d love to hear from you on the explicit baby shower cake trend: Good fun, or gross?

Christina’s Maternity Leave Replacement: Gwen Stefani!

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Christina Aguilera‘s on Maternity Leave, Gwen Stefani Will be Judging The Voice!” Once Pharell Williams was announced as a new judge on The Voice, everyone was wondering whether mama-to-be Christina Aguilera would be back for the seventh season along with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Well, the answer is no! But don’t worry, as she takes maternity leave to prepare for baby number two (a girl!), Christina’s leaving her revolving chair in good hands with a fellow musical mama: Gwen Stefani!

Maybe it was a case of pregnancy brain—or just excitement—but Christina didn’t even wait for NBC to make the big announcement; she leaked the replacement news herself by tweeting, “So excited to have you join #TheVoice squad @GwenStefani! Welcome to our crazy fam! Kisses xoxo #blondesdoitbetter.”

Soon after, Gwen confirmed the news for fans, writing, “It’s true! gx @nbcthevoice,” as an Instagram caption to a photo of herself doing the show’s signature peace sign while holding a microphone.

As a brunette, I’m not sure I agree with Christina that blondes do it better, but the show definitely has a type when it comes to their female judges: fair-haired moms! Shakira—who is on the show now—is mother to an adorable 15-month-old son, Milan; Christina has son Max, 6, and a daughter on the way; and Gwen has three boys: Kingston, 7, Zuma, 5, and newborn, Apollo, 2 months. So she should fit right in!

Plus, she’s used to being the front woman to a bunch of guys in No Doubt, so she’s not going to put up with any garbage from the male judges. If anyone can hold her own in Christina’s maternity leave absence, Gwen can!

And, Christina fans, you can take a sigh of relief, the soon-to-be Mrs. Rutler is set to come back for the eighth season, likely airing in spring 2015.

Pregnant Christina Aguilera Reveals Her Baby Bump!

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Proud second-time mama-to-be Christina Aguilera posted her first pregnancy photo on Instagram and Twitter—an adorable snapshot of herself with fiancé Matt Rutler’s hand lovingly resting on her bump. The caption? “Baby loves NYC.” So cute!

Christina—who is expecting a girl—is reportedly nearing the five-month mark soon, and I remember those early months of pregnancy, where you’re showing, but your belly hasn’t fully popped, so you’re wondering, “Can people tell I’m pregnant, or do I just look like I scarfed down a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts?” Don’t worry, Christina, your beautiful glow gives it away. Pregnancy suits you!

Maternity fashion can be tough. As your breasts, belly and butt expand, you’re suddenly dressing this body you don’t even recognize. Some women embrace their bumps and wear very fitted clothes; others start stealing their hubby’s oversized sweatshirts and call it a day (No judgements!). I love that The Voice’s pop diva is still staying true to her style—only comfier—with her glam signature peep-toe pumps and ruby-red lips paired with a cotton tee shirt and leggings (a pregnant woman’s BFF).

We’ll probably be catching Christina—who is already mom to son, Max, 6—in workout gear during her pregnancy as well. Before getting pregnant, Christina went through a pretty dramatic weight loss, and got into a healthy routine, putting her on the right track to be a warm and cozy nest for her little one. So I can’t imagine she’d be dropping that routine now, knowing that diet and exercise are über-important to a baby’s development.

Regardless of what she wears, we can’t wait for the next cute bump pic!
