When Ciara first announced that she is pregnant with her first child, she explained why she didn’t wish to reveal the sex of her baby.
“I do know the sex of my baby,” she explained. “But again I want to keep that special.”
But honestly, it has to be pretty difficult to hold such a huge and exciting secret like that in for too long—especially when you’re constantly doing interviews and whatnot. Though Ci Ci didn’t slip up and spill the beans about the sex of her baby, it looks like her fiancé, Future, may have.
While chatting with Tim Westwood TV, he began to share that his unborn child is already listening to music and well, he dropped the news from there.
“The baby listening to music already now,” he began. “She sent me a video while I was over here with the headphones on her stomach. She said ‘The baby just listened to ‘Turn On The Lights,’ the version with me and you.’ I said ‘He gotta play.You gotta play that ‘Anytime’ for him, the new one you did. Let him hear that. See how he kick.’ She played it for him and he started kicking like crazy.”
Shortly after his initial statement, he realized that he’d spilled the beans.
“See you got the sex outta me and you don’t even know it.”
And then of course, he tried to clean it up.
“That’s why I can’t tell you what sex I’m having. If it’s a girl or a boy. I might say it’s a boy, but it might be a girl. I really love girls. I always said I wanted two girls and I already have one, so.”
Ha! He definitely wouldn’t be the first to accidentally reveal the sex of a baby against a celebrity mom’s wishes. Last March Tiny accidentally revealed that her BFF Tamar Braxton was having a boy as well.
Watch Future spill the beans on the next page.
There’s being a fan and then there’s taking things too far. These fans decided to show their undying loyalty to their favorite celebrities by professing their love in ink…unfortunately.
The Ciara neck tattoo
She may be engaged to Atlanta singer/songwriter Future, and thus taken, but that didn’t stop one man from getting Ciara’s face tattooed on his neck. The die hard C-squad fan club member showed off his ink on social media and the soon-to-be mom reposted it on her instagram page with a shout-out to her faithful follower. No word yet how Future feels about the tattoo.
With a new year comes a whole new set of enviable Hollywood figures. While some of the lovely ladies on our list have become mainstays in the fashion, beauty and fitness worlds already, there are certainly a few new women the world should take notice of. And though staring at these gorgeous women might fill us with a little bit of jealousy, we’re also hoping it kicks us into high gear with our resolution to get it right, get it tight in 2014. So without further adieu, here’s a look at 2014’s hottest celebrity figures.
In this day and age where a celebrity’s every move can be well chronicled, somehow these celebrities managed to surprise us all by popping up pregnant out of nowhere. No announcement, no save the date, just them, the red carpet, and a baby bump.
Lil Kim reigned as the Queen Bee of rap in the late 90’s. Although her career took a nosedive following a jail stint for lying under oath, the diminutive star still managed to release new music. She may not be the hottest female rapper around anymore but the Brooklyn emcee will have a new title to her name. Lil Kim popped up at an event during New York Fashion Week earlier this month with a big bun in the oven. She’s a few months into the pregnancy and her boyfriend and daddy to be Mr. Papers revealed she is having a baby boy.

‘In The Beginning It Was Drama:’ Future’s Ex, Brittni Mealy, Opens Up About Co-Parenting With Future And Ciara
Around this time last year, rapper Future’s ex-girlfriend, Brittni Mealy, seemed to be at odd with the 30-year-old recording artist and his then-girlfriend, Ciara.
“I know the real “him”, the part she [Ciara] doesn’t know,” Brittni said last year. “They are just “honeymooning” right now. Everything always seems perfect in the beginning.”
Thankfully, things have changed and Brittni has great things to say about the father of her 1-year-old son, Prince, and his now-fiancée. This, of course, is great news since Ciara is the mother of Prince’s soon-to-be brother or sister. But Brittni says that the blended family that you see today didn’t come without a few bumps in the road.
“In the beginning, of course, it was drama,” the online boutique owner told Sister 2 Sister. “But I feel like if he’s happy and that’s what he wants to do with his life then just as as my friend and as my son’s dad, you know, I have to support his move.”
She admits that it definitely hasn’t been an easy process, but keeping emotions in check is crucial.
“I mean of course as a woman you may still have some feelings, but you don’t have to act on them.”
As for co-parenting with Future, she says it got easier once she matured a bit more.
“I always wanted things my way,” adds Brittni. “And we would always bump heads. I’ve matured as a person and a woman. I just had to give myself a reality check. Now I’m trying to do things his way and hear him out and things have been working out.”
Apparently Ci Ci and little Prince have hit it off also.
“She is great with my son.”
While this may not be an ideal situation for any of the parties involved, it looks like they’re making the best of it.
Sometimes you know within a matter of minutes if the person you just met is your soulmate and partner for life. That appears to be the case with these celebrity couples who wasted no time moving from dating to engaged within a matter of months or even days.
Big Sean and Naya Rivera
Rapper Big Sean had a longtime girlfriend back when he signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. Even though she was there for much of his success, the couple parted ways in 2013 and soon after that the Detroit rapper was in the arms of another woman. Big Sean met actress Naya Rivera on Twitter first before taking their romance offline and into the real world. After dating for just six months, Sean popped the question this past October.

Aside from picking up awards and watching some dope (and sometimes wack) performances, the Grammys are always good for fashion. It’s the night for stars to dress up like the rock stars they are–or to come out the house looking a mess. You never know what you’ll get. Let’s take a look at some fashions that had us talking and made us want to steal the looks or stop them dead in their tracks.
I guess after all that random backlash Erica Campbell received from some about the tight white dress she wore in a photoshoot for a new single, Campbell decided to stay covered up. She hit the red carpet with her daughter in this pink lace ensemble, and while I’m loving the hair and the makeup, I get “First Lady” vibe from this look. That’s not a bad thing…just not a good thing for the Grammys. Stop.
Another red carpet. Another mommy-to-be looking absolutely radiant.
Ciara stepped out, sans her man Future (though he could show up inside the Staples Center once the show starts), to snap pics on the red carpet at the 56th annual Grammy Awards. Ci Ci isn’t nominated for any awards (the lack of love for “Body Party” is a complete travesty), but the singer is performing at an exclusive roaring ’20s themed Grammy after-party hosted by Degree.
She stepped on the red carpet in a custom made Emilio Pucci gown that showed off that growing baby bump, and her skin was absolutely glowing! Ci Ci recently opened up about her baby’s arrival (the gender is unknown to the general public) being closer than folks think:
“Well I can’t say the due date, but I can tell you that I’m not too far away from being in the delivery room. “
Loving everything about her and her look tonight (though I’m not totally sold on the hair…). What do you think? Share your thoughts below!
Last week Ciara announced on “The View” that she’s pregnant with her first child. Though she doesn’t really want to disclose her delivery date, she recently revealed to People that her due date is not too far away.
“Well I can’t say the due date, but I can tell you that I’m not too far away from being in the delivery room,” the glowing mom to be said. “And I do know the sex of my baby, but again, I wanna keep that special as well.”
Ci Ci also confessed why she chose to keep her pregnancy a secret for such a long time.
“When something like that happens, especially with it being my first time, I think it’s important that I do things on my time. Some people that I know who are friends or some people that I don’t talk to everyday, but have a really good relationship with, they may ask me questions about if the rumors were true. And I felt so bad because I told them a story.”
She adds that being in the spotlight also made it difficult for her to tell her parents the big news.
“I didn’t get a chance to tell my mom and dad as early as I wanted to because I wanted to see them in person. And you know my schedule, I travel so much. So it was really hard to be able to tell everyone how I wanted to. But of course my family knew before now. It was just so important to me to share something so special on my time. First you have to get through the first trimester and all of those important times. I just wanted to do it right and where I felt comfortable.”
Now that the secret is out, the “Body Party” singer says she feels liberated.
“Being able to share something so special to me with the world, it’s a very free feeling to be honest, as a woman. Now I can really start to go shopping for my bump.”
She seems so happy!

‘It’s God’s Baby:’ Ciara’s Ex, LaKyle Thomas, Comments On Rumors That He’s The Father Of Her Unborn Child
When Ciara’s high school sweetheart, LaKyle Thomas, tossed around hints on social media that he was still in love with the singer, some wild rumors began floating around—including one crazy rumor that he’s actually the father of her unborn child. Though the rumors seemed a little wacky and extremely hard to believe, LaKyle’s response to those rumors is even wackier.
“It’s God’s baby,” he said when confronted with the rumors during a recent interview.
I mean, we guess, LaKyle. But a simple no would’ve done the trick. The male model and actor also slammed media outlets for reporting that he was still pining over Ci Ci, adding that the recent social media posts that he made about the “I’m Out” singer were just a joke.
“They been taking the story and putting it upside down on me,” LaKyle said. “I had already posted that picture on Facebook like a year and a half ago. So it’s already out there. Ciara just came out on ‘The View’ and told everyone that she was pregnant. You know, she showed the world. I was just at work, people was teasing me about it. It was just a joke. The media got a hold to it and really just turned it upside down on me. It made it look like I wanted her back and I miss her so much and I wish it was my baby. That’s just how the media works. Everybody is just trying to make it look like… it was just puppy love.”
Ironically, LaKyle did confess that if Ci Ci were still on the market, he’d definitely put his bid in.
“Since the gloves are off… at the end of the day, if she was still on the market, yeah, I’d definitely go for it. She’s a good woman. But right now she’s engaged—happy for her, happy for the baby.”
So yeah, there’s a possibly that the posts were all a joke; however, some of his other comments make it seem like he’s just looking to get a little more shine at Ci Ci’s expense.
Watch LaKyle’s full interview on the next page to find out what he had to say about rumors that he’s gay and whether or not he’s feuding with Future. Let us know what you think.
