When it’s time to tell a kid that they won’t be your only child for much longer, things can get pretty interesting. For example, my parents love telling the story of how I got so angry I began calling them by their first names when they brought my baby brother home from the hospital. Then, of course, there’s that cute little toothless boy whose video went viral after he basically scolded his mom getting pregnant again. Thankfully, unlike myself and the little cutie with the missing teeth, Kelis’ 6-year-old son, Knight Jones, was quite supportive when he learned that his mama is with child.
“[He’s] really funny. He’s very grown up about everything. He was like, ‘Congratulations, Mama,’ like a friend [and] patted me on the back,” Kelis, who is currently 8 months pregnant, told People. “[Knight’s] really excited — like over the moon. He’s so excited, which is actually really cute.”
According to the 36-year-old, Knight is hopeful for a little brother, and he’s prepared to teach the new baby everything he knows.
“I was like, ‘We’re going to have another baby in the family,’ so now he’s like, ‘I can’t wait. I’m going to teach the baby everything’ He’s all about it. He talks to my stomach all day long.”
When asked how she plans to juggle now that she’s about to have two little ones on her hands, the singer had this to say:
“I figured once you’ve got one, your life is already so shifted … I’m assuming that you just pick up right there.”
The expectant mom adds that she didn’t tell Knight about her pregnancy until after she started showing “just so that he could actually understand.”
As for why he’s so eager to have a brother, Kelis shared:
“I think it’s because he thinks they come out ready to play. In his mind, that would be better for him because they could play right away. He doesn’t understand that it’s going to take a while.”
On another note, who the heck knew she was so far along in her pregnancy?
Tamar Braxton is an interesting lady. And if nothing else, she’s candid and entertaining. She joined with her pal Wendy Williams on the purple couch to talk about her life, career and motherhood. See what she had to say about having more children, “Dancing With the Stars” and healing from past relationships.
On possibly wanting more children
Well, at first I would be like ‘Girl, no!’ But I feel like–you know cuz I grew up with a big family– I feel like he needs a playmate or something. But when I ask him Wendy he’s like “No, no no, no, no, no!” So that’s what it is…I feel like he knows what he’s talking about.
He really likes it when it’s just the three of us. But I’m ok with it. I really don’t feel like being pregnant, at all!
Why she wanted to join “Dancing With The Stars”
I really wanted to do it because I can’t dance. The only thing I could do was twerk. I was like ‘Ooo girl, you can’t put your hands on your knees every time you hear a record. It’s not age appropriate all the time. Every song?! Really, every song? Now I can do the cha-cha. Now I’m learning how to do the rhumba.
Singing about her past relationships…How does Vince feel about you singing about that?
He know I got a past. He has one too. And to be honest, a part of growing up– and I feel like I kind of started to grow up in the past few years, finally– so I feel like it’s about accepting and knowing your past. A lot of people are like ‘Oh my God Tamar, we don’t want to hear another song about Vincent Herbert.’ Yes, and that’s great and I am in love and I’m really happy but there is a story behind Tamar. I didn’t just wake up one day and just meet the love of my life. I kissed old gruesome frogs and all the monsters and stuff. So it was important for me to talk about. And really honestly Wendy, I didn’t know that there was a lot I needed to let go.
Tamar also mentioned that she’s really looking for a brother-in-law (a husband for Toni) and a stepfather (a husband for Mama E.)
Check out the full interview on “The Wendy Williams Show” in the video below.
Looks like there’s a new bundle on the way for the most stable couple on “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood.”
Recently, singer Omarion posted a video on his Instagram page announcing that Apryl, his long time girlfriend, is five months pregnant. The video shows an ultrasound and we hear Apryl and Omarion learning the sex of their new baby.
These two don’t play huh? Their first son, Megaa just celebrated his first birthday this past August.
Check out the video of the couple’s recent doctor’s appointment and the gender reveal in the video below.
I would be remiss though if I didn’t mention that people are truly wondering when Omarion is going to put a ring on it. Apryl seems like such a sweet woman. Inquiring minds want to be all up in your business.
I know one thing though, this little girl is going to be adorable. Congratulations to Omarion and Apryl!
After keeping her to themselves for nearly two months, Evan Ross and his wife, Ashlee Simpson, have finally decided to show off their beautiful baby girl.
Thursday, Ross took to Instagram with a touching family photo featuring his family’s newest addition, himself Simpson, who was apparently shedding tears of joy during the photo shoot.
“Jagger Snow Ross! Everyone!!!!! Everyday has been the best day!!! Such a wonderful blessing. Love you @ashleesimpsonross best mommy in the world!” Ross captioned the image.
Simpson shared the very same photo on her Instagram page, writing:
“Jagger Snow Ross !! We love her so much!!! She is beyond everything!!! I have the best baby daddy @realevanross In the world. Love you.”
Ross and Simpson welcomed Jagger on July 30. She is the couple’s first child together. Simpson is also mother to 6-year-old Bronx Wentz.
After two long months, Tamera Mowry’s daughter, Ariah Talea Housley, has finally made her first public debut.
Tuesday, a paparazzo with X17 Online caught up with Mowry and 2-month-old Ariah at a security gate at LAX airport. While passing through the checkpoint, Mowry briefly chatted with the videographer about the VMAs, a possible “Sister Sister” reboot and, of course, her new baby girl.
Mowry and her husband, Adam Housley, welcomed the infant on July 1. She weighed 10 pounds, 2 ounces and measured 20.5 inches. They are also proud parents of 2-year-old Aden Housley.
“We are beyond overjoyed and blessed with our beautiful baby girl,” the couple said in a statement after the baby’s birth.
Since Ariah’s July birth, her mother has been teasing eager fans with photos of the infant’s feet, clothing, and even her nursery without ever actually sharing a photo of the new addition.
“Ariah’s tiny hands! I know everyone is eager to see her, but I hope you all respect my decision to keep her to myself for the time being,” the new mom wrote in July. “My heart runneth over with love for this little gem, every second is incredible.”
Glad we were finally able to see the little cutie.
2015 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Stephen Curry and his family. Not only did his team win the NBA championship, his daughter became a household name, and his wife Ayesha Curry, gave birth to the couple’s second child, a healthy, baby girl they named Ryan Carson Curry.
#Blessed for real, for real.
Ayesha revealed on her blog that she delivered this little one in three hours, with no epidural.
And of course, we’re all dying to know what she looks like.
Earlier today, Steph posted the first picture of the couple’s new bundle on his Instagram page, with plenty of thanks to God for her safe arrival.
Check her out, with big sister Riley in the mix, in the image below.
Congrats are in order for the actress The Real co-host and husband Adam Housley as they welcomed a daughter yesterday, July 1.
Ariah Talea Housley (her first name is pronounced like Mariah) — born at 2:54 p.m, weighing 10 lbs., 2 oz and measuring 20.5 inches — joins big brother Aden John Tanner, 2½.
“We are beyond overjoyed and blessed with our beautiful baby girl. Aden already made a welcome video for her,” the proud new parents tell People.com.
Once Mowry-Housley knew she was adding a baby girl to her brood, she couldn’t contain her excitement. “I love fashion and makeup, and now I get to have a little fun,” she said in February.
Also there for the birth of baby girl Ariah was Tamera’s co-host Loni Love, her bestie Andrea, and her brother “Baby Daddy star Taj Mowry.
Getting thrust into the thick of parenting can be extremely stressful for anyone, and Chris Brown surely already has his hands full. But now that the R&B superstar is an instant Dad, he’s got to make some decisions quick fast in a hurry. One of those decisions is apparently to never spank his daughter. This according to a source at Hollywoodlife.com.
Last month, the world learned that 25-year old Chris Brown was the father of baby Royalty, a now 10-month old little girl whose mother Nia Guzman had a fling with CB. Brown quickly acknowledged his paternity, and Karreuche quickly left him. She recently did an interview with Iyanla Vanzant on OWN, where she admitted that she still loved CB. Still, right now, Karrueche doesn’t seem to think the couple will be getting back together. So Chris’ focus seems to be on raising Royalty, without spanking, of course.
“Chris and Nia agree on one simple disciplinary rule: absolutely no spanking. They both don’t believe in that form of discipline and will use their words, time-outs or loss of privileges to correct her behavior,” says the insider to Hollywoodlife.com. If true, Chris joins other new millennium parents who’d rather put their kid in a “time-out” than spank. According to the source, both Chris and Nia don’t believe in spanking, but also don’t want Royalty growing up spoiled or feeling entitled.
It’s also been rumored that Chris Brown wants Nia and the baby to move to Los Angeles to be closer to him. Nia and the baby currently live in Houston, Texas, but if they relocate to Chris’s fancy Hollywood Hills neighborhood, the singer will continue to pay child support plus housing. He may not be the best boyfriend, but Chris Brown seems committed to being a good dad.
Hollywoodlife.com’s insider also said, “Chris doesn’t want to use the same tactics his parents used on him when he was a kid. He wants to be a different example for his daughter. He’s very aware kids learn most everything from their parents and all he wants to be is the best dad on the planet.” Chris is also rumored to be planning a big princess party for Royalty’s first birthday.
In a recent Instagram post, Chris seemed to hint that he missed his baby…Karrueche, that is. He posted an image with his feet up and a caption that read “Some people love it, but I will never find this comforting. Being alone in a room alone with no one to hold.”
When speaking about her relationship with Brown, Karrueche admitted that Chris loved her despite everything she went through. “He did give me love. Maybe it wasn’t the right love or the same level but he’s a product of his environment growing up,” she said.
Chris Brown’s relationships with women haven’t exactly been healthy. From his 2009 domestic violence incident with Rihanna to his on-again, off-again status with Karrueche to his shotgun baby, CB’s image has been a bit of a struggle. Chris Brown’s baby could be just what he needs to help clean it up. So, with regards to his parenting, there are no room for mistakes. When it comes to 10-month old Royalty at least, the decision to not put hands on her is a probably a good one.
“I think the best part of being a mom, actually it’s being Titan’s mom, Titan is a pretty incredible kid.”
On naming her son…
“I told him if I have to do the rest of the work he has to name him and give him a fly name.”
On spin class…
“Jeanette Jenkins is the secret, SoulCycle is the secret,” she told the show. “When I go in there and it’s the wee hours of the morning, she is a great secret — so motivational. Jeanette comes in with so much energy and this huge smile on her face, and you can’t help but to get excited about working out.”
On eating healthy…
“The 80/20 rule is all the way real, 80 percent of the time you eat those foods giving you nourishment, you’re eating clean, and 20 percent of the time, have guacamole, a ton of it like I do, and a margarita and maybe queso too!” she said.
On a Destiny’s Child reunion…
“The last reunion happened the other day when we all sat down and were just talking and enjoying each other’s company, it was awesome, not every time you see Destiny’s Child together may be in front of the camera, we still have our bond amongst each other, that’s the most beautiful gift Destiny’s Child has given me.”
2014 was a year filled with high highs and low lows for Kelly Rowland. She married her longtime love Tim Weatherspoon, welcomed her first child Titan Jewell Weatherspoon and unfortunately, lost her mother Doris Rowland Garrison. In the April 2015 issue of Essence, the new wife and mom opens up about all of the above. Check out some highlights from her interview below.
On refusing to let her marriage take a backseat to motherhood:
“The baby doesn’t change who we are as people. We still like to go have dinner. We do the activities that we do every day. I don’t think that should stop.”
“My priority is my husband first. That’s how the baby got there.”
On her fondest memory of her late mother:
“I was doing something with the baby in the house after we came home from the hospital and she was there with me and she just looked at me and she said, ‘I’m so proud of you!’ I listen to that every day in my head. It makes me happy.”
On how her life has inspired her upcoming album:
“You have no choice but to tap into emotions when you’re in the studio. The same way we’re experiencing those emotions, whether it’s having a child or losing a parent or whatever it might be, everybody is experiencing the same pain or happiness that you’re experiencing as well.”
On getting married, having a baby and losing her mom in one year:
“My road to my happiness hasn’t been an easy one. It hasn’t been peachy all the time, but I am so, so happy.”
