Last week we told you that 46-year-old actress Halle Berry is pregnant with her second child. In case you were wondering what this means for her career, which appears to be moving full speed ahead, Halle says that she’s excited about adding to her family, but she won’t allow the little one slow her stride, according to E! News. She even joked that a new baby is all the more reason to keep working.
“Well, one thing is for sure: I better keep working. With another baby on the way, Mama cannot take time off!” said the mom-to-be.
She went on to discuss how much time she took off when she had her daughter Nahla and why that won’t be happening this time.
“I think that when I had my first child, my daughter, I took off a good four years because it was something new to me. It was my first time, it was something I tried really hard to do…This time, when I have the baby, I’ll keep walking!”
Halle also told BBC that filming for the upcoming X-Men movie will be centered “around the bump.”
“Storm probably won’t be as badass as she was going to be because we won’t be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that. She’ll be different than we originally planned her to be but I still think she’ll be an integral part of this new X-Men movie,” she expressed.
Did you work around your pregnancy or did you take some time off?
Back in December, we told you that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Phaedra Parks and hubby Apollo Nilda were expecting their second child. Since the exciting announcement, Phaedra has shared that she would love for the soon-arriving addition to the family to be a girl, as she and Apollo already have a two-year-old son together. Although the Nilda family may have wished for a girl, the mom-to-be made it very clear that regardless of the sex of the child, all they really wanted was a happy and healthy baby. Now that Phaedra has learned the sex of her child, she opened up to In Touch regarding some rather intimate details surrounding her pregnancy.
“I’m having another little boy!” she squealed to In Touch about the sex of the baby she’s scheduled to give birth to in May. Although she previously revealed that her two-year-old son Ayden was hoping for a little sister, she says he’s equally excited about having a little brother as well.
“He’s such a great helper. He’ll be a wonderful big brother because he likes to help and he’s so smart,” Parks expressed.
The 40-year-old mom-to-be also revealed that she experienced a few complications during this pregnancy, which could be why she was so secretive about sharing how far along she was in her pregnancy initially.
“Doctors have diagnosed me with placenta previa, which means I need to be careful this time around because I can’t have a vaginal birth,” said the reality star.
Phaedra also expressed that while she would entertain having another child if she knew it would be a girl, she’s really just anticipating this one to get here.
“I would entertain a third child, but I would have to guarantee that it was a little girl. I think that would be plenty after that. I’m just super excited for this baby to get here!”

25-year-old rapper Wiz Khalifa has been anything but shy about desiring that his baby boy to be born into a family where both of his parents share the same last name. On several occasions, the North Dakota native expressed that he and Amber would be getting hitched in a private ceremony pre-baby and then having an elaborate wedding celebration after Amber gives birth. While he never indicated when the wedding would be, we all knew it was coming soon. Especially since Amber is looking like she can go into labor at any given moment.
Now that all of the excitement surrounding the couple’s two fabulous baby showers has died down, it’s looking like the love birds have finally jumped the broom. TMZ recently caught up with Amber while she was doing some shopping. And of course, in like TMZ fashion, they made playful pregnancy jokes and offered Amber a Ninja Turtles ice cream sandwich, stating that they “know pregnant girls crave ice cream”. An extremely pregnant Amber excitedly accepted their offer and took the ice cream sandwich.
Before departing, she proceeded to thank the guys of TMZ:
“My husband loves Ninja Turtles, too. That’s really cute. Thank you.”
Aha! Whether intentionally or unintentionally, Amber definitely spilled the beans. Wiz loves the Ninja Turtles so much that he has one of them tattooed on his leg.
We can’t say exactly when, where or how the couple tied the knot and I suppose that doesn’t even matter. It’s great that Amber and Wiz were able to get married before the birth of their child. The two seem very much in love.
We’re really happy for them!
Check out the adorable footage of Amber spilling the beans on the next page.

Is it ever appropriate to call someone’s baby “ugly”? I’m going to go with NO, but apparently that memo hasn’t reached the masses and Tia Mowry is the latest celebrity mama to deal with insults hurled at her child.
Tia hasn’t been shy about showing her son, Cree Hardrict, off to the world. The one-year-old has appeared on his famous mom’s reality show “Tia & Tamera” as well as been photographed with his mom on several occasions. Tia is a proud mother who loves to show off her baby. She posts her own pictures on social media networks and the paparazzi also snags shots at every chance they get. Some of those pictures are posted online and have drawn some nasty comments.
If you’ve been hanging around the comment section on various web pages you may have heard harsh words uttered [about Tia Mowry's baby].
“Wow that baby is ugly. What the hell happened,” turned up on one site. “Both parents are attractive. I just don’t get it.”
“You know I’m right, that baby is ugly,” wrote another commenter on [one site] responding to those who insisted otherwise. “That’s why you’re all hyped up about it. Say what you want and don’t act like ugly babies don’t exist. It is what it is. Don’t be at mad me. And just b/c I said the baby was ugly, it doesn’t mean he’ll always be that way. Who knows, maybe the kid will eventually grow into his head.”
Those comments didn’t go unnoticed by Tia herself and she responded on her Facebook page: “It’s disgusting that some focus on looks. I brought a beautiful child into this world.”
She’s right that is disgusting. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon. When Beyonce finally unwrapped her seventh-month old baby while out on a shopping trip, negative comments abounded. Though it’s highly likely that Beyonce heard about the vitriol directed toward her baby, she didn’t respond. She did, however, refrain from showing Blue Ivy’s face in the family photos she recently posted on Tumblr. Whether that was coincidence or her passive response to criticism is unclear considering that the picture circulated a few weeks ago was a paparazzi photo and not one she published on her own.
Of course, Tia and Beyonce aren’t the only mothers who have had to deal with “your baby is ugly” comments. Other mothers, both celebrities and non have also been blindsided by hateful insults from unscrupulous people.
Some would say that these moms shouldn’t put their babies out there to be criticized for their looks, but I would say that no one should be criticizing a baby’s looks anyway. If there is ever a time when “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” applies, it’s when it comes to someone’s baby — even when that “someone” is a celebrity and thus you feel entitled to critique every aspect of her life.
It’s not about taking sides on whether or not you believe that “every baby is cute” either. Who cares? Sometimes we don’t need to “keep it real” or “just be honest” because the real, honest truth is, no one should have the audacity to negatively comment on a baby’s looks — out loud or online.

Aaaahhh it’s so nice to see that a positive reality show is being picked up for a second season. Twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry-Hardrict and Housley, respectively, will partner with the Style network one more time for their self titled reality show. The two recently took promo photos for the show and baby Cree joined them for one of the shots. It’s amazing how big he’s gotten! I can see both his parents in his face but I think he looks more like his dad, Cory.
You can check out more photos from their shoot at Sister 2 Sister.com. Were you a fan of their show? Will you check out the second season?
And in other cute baby news, Mariah took a dip with her baby girl Monroe recently. It’s good to see this little one, since she’s always in the background having a meltdown while her brother is hamming up the spotlight. Both of them looked very relaxed.
