Last November we found out that former “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada was pregnant with her second child. It was eventually revealed that the child’s father is Los Angeles Dodgers player Carl Crawford. The two later got engaged. Now with just a few more weeks to go before she delivers her little bundle, the mom-to-be has revealed the sex of the baby. It turns out she’s having a boy!
“Surprisingly, I found out when I had my first trimester screening,”the 37-year-old told People.
She went on to say that a baby boy is exactly what she’d been hoping for.
“I was about 13 weeks when they told me the sex! I was honestly praying for a boy. I have wanted to have a son for years.”
Evelyn’s 20-year-old daughter, Shaniece Hairston, is also elated to be welcoming a little brother.
“Shaniece is just happy that she can still be the princess of the family,” Evelyn joked. “Her brother is already her BFF in her head.”
“We were both so happy. There are all girls on my side, so this will be our first boy. My family is over the moon. Every time I go to the doctor, I have them check to make sure it’s a boy. I’m still in disbelief!”
As for baby shower plans, Ev says a diapers & diamonds-themed baby shower is in the works. The shower is scheduled to take place Saturday, February 8th and will be hosted by “Basketball Wives” executive producer Shaunie O’Neal, rapper Bow Wow’s mother, Teresa Caldwell, and Ev’s publicist and friend, Danika Berry. It’s being organized by celebrity event planner Diann Valentine. So far, no baby names have been selected.
“Carl and I have a few in mind, but haven’t decided yet,” said Evelyn.
She seems very happy.
Children are often described as sponges, absorbing everything they see and hear. According to Khloé Kardashian, this quote couldn’t be a more accurate description of her six-month-old niece, North West.
“Kanye [West] is such an awesome dad,” the soon-to-be divorced reality TV personality told Cosmopolitan UK. “And he’s so opinionated and passionate.”
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star went on to say that North has already picked up her dad’s big personality.
“North is only five-and-a-half months old but you can see she has opinions and a strong personality already,” said Khloé.
Of course, Kanye’s strong personality has gotten him into his share of trouble, so it’s no surprise that Khloé says she’s a tad nervous to see what a more grown-up North will be like with that personality.
“I’m kind of nervous to see what she’s like when she’s older but I think she’ll be incredibly confident because Kim and Kanye are.”
Speaking of family, Khloé also commented on her pending divorce from estranged hubby, Lamar Odom, and confessed that she’s looking forward to 2014 because she needs a fresh start.
“I love the new year, new beginnings,” said Khloé. “I need a good fresh start; I’m excited for this year to be over with… You only live once so let’s make that one time perfect. We can’t fix our mistakes and imperfections, so let’s have fun. You get what you give out in life,” she continued. “I don’t regret anything about my life. My life has made me who I am at this moment and I’m very happy with who I am. No matter if it’s great, disgusting, beautiful or ugly; it happens and it makes you you. Life is about how you process things.”
It will be pretty interesting to see little North’s personality evolve as she gets older.
Ohh baby, baby! Every time we turned around in 2012 it seemed a celebrity was announcing their pregnancy — and that meant for tons of new bundles of joy in 2013. Can’t remember all the new cutie pies that were welcomed into the world over the past 12 months, here’s a look back at the 2013 celebrity baby births.
Michael Jordan,50, is about to be a father again. Thankfully this time, he’s pretty sure it’s his!
Last month we told you that the legendary athlete and his wife of eight months, Yvette Prieto were with child. Well, it actually turns out that they’re expecting two! According to TMZ, Yvette, 34, is carrying identical twins. Sources have chosen not to disclose how far along Yvette is into her pregnancy, but they say she’s progressing just fine.
Michael and Yvette dated for five years before tying the knot back in April during a star-studded ceremony in Jupiter, Florida. Aside from the new babies, he has three children, who are all in their 20s. It will be pretty interesting to see him starting over again. You know, warming bottles and changing diapers. But as previously stated by Drenna Armstrong, he’s retired, so he should have plenty of time to devote to his family’s newest additions once they arrive.
In the past, Michael has been involved in his share of paternity drama, with two women coming forward claiming to have small children by him. As it turns out, neither of the children were his.
We wish Michael and Prieto all the best!
Inside Eva Marcille & Kevin McCall’s Adorable Baby Shower: Find Out What They’re Naming Their Daughter
Back in August we told you that “America’s Next Top Model” winner Eva Marcille is expecting her first child with her musically inclined boo Kevin McCall.
“It was a surprise to us,” the 29-year-old mom-to-be expressed before revealing why they decided to hide the pregnancy for so long.
“You keep it under wraps because you just don’t know whatever’s going to happen, you know what I mean? I think I’ve been keeping it under wraps for so long that when it hit the fan it was like, ‘AHHH!’ Everybody [was shocked]. I mean, all of my friends. I haven’t told anyone, so everyone sort of found out altogether.”
The time for Eva to give birth is drawing near and the model-turned-actress celebrated the birth of new bundle with family and friends at what appeared to be a fairly intimate baby shower. During the shower, she and Kevin also revealed that they’re going to name their little girl, Marley. The proud parents-to-be shared photos from the adorable event via their Instagram pages. They both seem super excited!

After evading questions about his relationship status and whether or not his rumored girlfriend, Naiyana Garth, is pregnant with his baby, “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom” actor Idris Elba has finally confirmed what most of us had already assumed to be true: he’s about to be a father again. The revelation came during Elba’s Sunday night appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter.
Idris said that he is, in fact, expecting a child with Naiyana, who is a London-based makeup artist.
“My girlfriend’s having a baby, yes,” he confessed.
Speculation about Idris and Naiyana’s relationship and pregnancy began swirling last month after the two made an appearance together at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards last month. Sadly, Idris also revealed that he found out he was going to be a father again shortly after he lost his father, Winston Elba, to lung cancer; a diagnosis which he says shocked his West African family.
“Africans don’t think cancer is something that happens to us,” he said.
This will be Idris’ second child. He also has an 11-year-old daughter named Isan. The sex of the baby has yet to be revealed. We imagine that this has to be a fairly bittersweet moment for the actor, who admits that he hasn’t really given himself time to mourn his father’s passing.
We send our prayers to Idris and his family.

Over the summer we told you that actress and producer Kim Fields was expecting her second child. The 44-year-old beauty made the announcement during a July appearance on The Real.
“I have a big announcment. I’ve been in the lab, working both personally and professionally. One of the projects that I’ve been working on has been a co-production with my husband Christopher and… tada!” a glowing Kim said, as she rose from behind the desk to show off her protruding belly.
“This is Quincy Xavier. He’s a boy, yes. Our first son, Sebastian Alexander, he’s six now. He’s very excited. My husband Christopher is also very excited. We’re very, very blessed,” she continued.
Kim finally gave birth to little Quincy this morning in Atlanta, Georgia. The new mommy made the announcement via Twitter.
Kim and her hubby, Christopher, also gushed to People about their new addition.
“We are so blessed and grateful to God for this newest gift to our family,” expressed the couple.
“It was planned. We’ve actually been trying for a couple years. We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]. If I’m encouraging to anybody … it’s not like I’m the poster child for over 40 and pregnant.”
Though Tamar Braxton appears to be basking in the joys of motherhood now that her son Logan has arrived, the new mom is not ashamed to admit that pregnancy was not a pleasant experience for her. She recently shared with FLAUNT Magazine that the experience was so unpleasant that she doesn’t plan on having anymore children. Check out a few of her interview highlight below.
On expanding her family:
“Well, I’m not having any kids in the future.”
On being miserable during her pregnancy:
“God no [I'm not having more kids]. I hated being pregnant. I felt like Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It’s beautiful and it’s great just like everyone says, but there’s another side to it. My back. My feet. My skin went absolutely nuts. I had the itchies the whole day. Imagine scratching all day and you can never get to the itch.”
On the side of pregnancy that isn’t openly discussed:
“Yes. People lie to you. I was one hundred percent open and honest on Tamar and Vince because I was upset. I didn’t instantly connect with my baby, and no one told me this was common. I was jealous because Vince and the baby connected instantly. It’s not that I didn’t love him; it’s not that I didn’t want to connect with him. I was upset because I didn’t instantly connect with him. I didn’t cry when I first saw him. I was confused. I was like, ‘What do I do now?’”
On love vs. passion:
“Passion is a lot like lust, except it’s real. Passion is real because the other person feels the same way about you. It’s not one-sided. When you argue, it’s passionate, because you want to get your point across but you also want the other person to understand you, so you can get back to the love. Nobody told me about that either. I had to learn that for myself.”

Back in June we told you that Miami Heat star Chris Bosh and his wife, Adrienne, were expecting their second child together. The couple announced their upcoming birth with an adorable photo shoot starring their son Jack and Chris’ daughter from a previous relationship, Trinity. Last month Adrienne celebrated her pregnancy with Gabrielle Union and fellow basketball wives during a Parisian princess-themed baby shower. After much anticipation and tons of celebrating, Chris and Adrienne welcomed their new baby girl into the world yesterday. Adrienne made the birth announcement to fans via her Instagram page.
“What a perfect day to witness a miracle and be humbled by the beautiful process of Life and Love We appreciate all the well wishes, positivity, and words of support we have received! To my husband…you continue to bring life to my dreams and joy to my world. I Thank You for helping me welcome this perfect little angel #PrincessDylan #BoshFamily,” she captioned the above photograph.
Chris also took to Instagram with photos of his family’s latest addition.
“I’m a father again! I can’t believe it!!!” he exclaimed.
They seem like such a happy family! And check out that little smile Dylan serving up. She’s already camera ready, which is great, because y’all know her mama loves a good photo shoot.
