It seemed like just the other day, Chrissy Teigen was talking about her pregnancy struggles. Now, she’s revealing the sex of her baby.
Yesterday, the model, television host and wife to singer John Legend debuted her cover of Vogue Thailand. And in celebrating the pride and honor she felt being chosen for the cover, she explained the other reasons this particular moment was so special to her.
See what she said in the Instagram post below.

Teyana Taylor and her fiancé Iman Shumpert can add another chapter to their whirlwind love story. The couple welcomed their daughter into the world yesterday in a very memorable way.
Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. wasn’t delivered in the hospital, or even in the car. She came in the bathroom.
In fact, Teyana Taylor didn’t even know she was in labor.
Here’s how she recounted the remarkable story on her Instagram, just minutes ago.
A quick and virtually painless birth?! Amazing!
We’re sure this little girl will ask to hear about her birth story over and over again. It’s completely fascinating. Kudos to Daddy Iman for coming through in a clutch.
And congratulations to this couple on their new family.
There are so many children, so many Black children, living in the foster care system and they all need good homes. So we were happy to learn that Sandra Bullock has adopted a 3 1/2 year old girl from the foster care system in Louisiana.
The fact that Laila (pronounced Lila) was adopted past infancy is remarkable in and of itself as this is not the case for many children.
In the cover story for People, the 51-year-old actress talked about the process of adopting this little girl, five years after she adopted her son Louis in 2010. She shared her journey and was photographed by her boyfriend Bryan Randall. Bullock kept the full view of Louis and Laila’s face obscured but decided to pose with the children in an attempt to bring awareness to the 415,129 children living in the foster care system in the United States.
“When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here. I can tell you absolutely, the exact right children came to me at the exact right time.”
Interestingly enough, the idea to adopt little Laila, three years ago, came from an unexpected but beautifully poetic and apporpriate source.
“Louis spearheaded the whole journey.”
Bullock, who has a sister of her own, wanted her son to have a sibling, someone to talk to and complain about their mother together. Those of you with siblings know how important this ritual can be.
Today, Bullock says Louis and Laila have an inseparable bond; but in the beginning stages of her adoption, the transition required patience and plenty of reassurance.
“I knew she was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere.”
Bullock said that little Laila has brought pink and glitter in the house mixed with Legos and Batmans.”
Bullock described her family of three saying, “My family is blended and diverse, nutty, and loving and understanding. That’s a family.”
For a long time, for right or wrong, people believed interracial adoption was a celebrity fad. Of course, I could never speak to their intentions. Though I hoped and prayed that these celebrities were raising these children of color to be prepared for the world in which we currently live. What I do know though is that adoption can be such a beautiful thing when done right. And from what I’ve seen of Sandra and Louis, she seems to be very aware of the realities of raising Black children and doing it with love.
Check out this precious video of what he did for her on Mother’s Day.
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.
