Babies, babies, babies! We can’t get enough of them, and some famous folks are showing theirs off.
In December of last year, Kim Fields gave birth to her second child, another baby boy, this one by the name of Quincy. The infant is her second child with husband, Christopher Morgan, after the couple welcomed their first son, Sebastian, back in 2007. Recently, Fields shared a family photo, as well as a close-up of her little man on Twitter during a trip, and they’re all just the cutest:
Fields captioned this particular photo, “I adore being a mom of boys!!! Thx hubby for a great pic!”
She also shared an image of the family as a whole, which you can see here:
We spoke to Fields soon after she gave birth to Quincy, a big feat for her at the age of 44, and she called his arrival a true blessing:
“He’s such a little blessing. When I feel like, ‘I should have passed out a long time ago,’ I have to remember that we prayed for this. We asked for that restoration and refreshing on our bodies and our sprits and our minds and God said ‘Okay, here you go, I know you need it baby.’ But there were some things that took some, ‘Oh yeah I do remember how to do this!’ type of moments. Like changing a diaper and getting him in a car seat. You know, some of the utilitarian functions. It’s just like, all right, it’s been six years but I remember how to do this!”
Another mom excited about being a mother to a baby boy is Evelyn Lozada. She hasn’t given birth to her son with her fiance, LA Dodgers player, Carl Crawford, but she can’t wait to, and posted new pictures of her baby “bump” on Instagram, with a poem for her little man:
“No doubt you’re a son of mine, You make me feel happy even when I’m sad, because the formation of another life makes me glad. Proud of you I am, I already know how you’ll be, a smart ‘lil’ man for mommy to see, no worries from me a mom to be, to a special baby boy I can’t wait to see.”
“Everything grows rounder and wider and weirder, and I sit here in the middle of it all and wonder who in the world you will turn out to be.”
Lozada seems to be due very soon as she is already counting down the baby’s arrival because she’s ready for him to “vacate the premises” as she put it on Instagram. She also posted this image of her daughter, Shaniece, giving a kiss to her little brother:
I’m digging the baby love all around, but what about you? Talk about it below.
‘I Thought My Life Was Over:’ Evelyn Lozada Addresses Life After Ochocinco And How Fiancé, Carl Crawford, Makes Her Better
Evelyn Lozada is extremely happy these days. And to be honest, we can totally see why. She’s engaged to be married to a wealthy Major League Baseball star whom she seems totally in love with, she’s pregnant with the second child she’s always wanted and she’s surrounded by people who love and care for her. Overall, the former “Basketball Wives” star seems to be in a great place—a place that is an extreme contrast from where she was just two short years ago. 41 days after marrying former NFLer Chad Ochocinco in a fairytale wedding, the couple divorced following a highly publicized domestic violence incident.
“I had the worst 2012,” she confessed during a recent interview with Life & Style. “I thought my life was over.”
While going through such a traumatic incident is probably never easy, she added that doing so as the world watches made it that much more difficult.
“It happened so publicly, and then the passing of my brother-in-law.”
Though she was clearly broken by the way her marriage ended, Ev expressed that she believes that something positive was birthed in the midst of all of that negativity.
“That entire incident [with Chad] led me to where I’m at now,” she said. “I would say my broken bridge led me to happiness. If I had to do it again, I would because I truly feel complete right now in my life and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
When asked if she feels her fiancé, Carl Crawford, saved her, she expressed that he appeared in her life at the “perfect time.”
“He came into my life at a perfect time. Everything that happened makes me appreciate him 1,000 times more and he also makes me a better person. I appreciate everything and I thank God every day for my life…I’m really lucky and really, really blessed.”
As for the baby boy that she’s scheduled to give birth to in two months, Ev says she’s very much looking forward to the joys and challenges that raising a son will bring.
“He’s going to give me a run for my money! I’m like, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to want to play and get dirty. “I’m just looking forward to all these amazing things that come with having a boy and a baby.”
And most of all, she says she looks forward to teaching him the importance of respecting women.
“I just want him to love and respect all women.”
It’s tough not to be happy for someone who is so blatantly, well, happy!
In just one month, former “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada will give birth to her second child and the glowing mom-to-be is already plotting on how she will get back into tip-top shape after giving birth.
“When I started this pregnancy I was almost 150, but I’ve gained 31 pounds,” the second-time mom told HipHollywood at her Diamonds and Diapers-themed baby shower this past weekend. “He weighs about 4 pounds rights now, so I know that I’m going to be super focused. I’ve already spoken to Jeanette Jenkins. We’re gonna start training here in L.A.”
Ev says she even has a little bet going that will serve as a motivator to lose the weight.
“I have a bet going that I can get this body back in two months,” she added. “So I’m just focused. As soon as I get the clear to do weight training and cardio, I’m gonna need a lot of that, so hopefully I can get it together.”
As for when she plans to tie the knot with fiancé, Carl Crawford, Ev says the wedding will take place after baseball season concludes.
“Actually, the season is going to start soon so we’re not gonna do it now, but you know, after the season. I’m really just happy. I didn’t expect this at all, so you know, we’ll see.”

Evelyn Lozada is expecting her baby boy with fiancé Carl Crawford in March, and as the due date looms closer, she’s speaking out more and sharing more about her pregnancy. She’s had her baby shower and talked about enjoying her pregnancy in the past week and now, she’s taken to Instagram to share a picture of her exposed baby bump with her followers. In the picture, her hubby-to-be Carl Crawford holds on to her stomach while she holds on to his hands, huge engagement ring on her finger. She didn’t caption the Instagram photo, but on the actual picture, it says “Ev + Carl,” along with the photographer’s signature (Josh Madson) and year. This will be her second child, and the LA Dodger star’s third, as he has a 9-year-old son and a 5-month-old daughter. Before he popped the question, they reportedly quietly dated for a year. He’s kept a low profile since the baseball season ended, so this is the first image Evelyn has shared of the two together, and it’s a beautiful one.
The reality star has shared a few more images from photo shoots she’s done during her pregnancy, which were displayed during her baby shower.
Once again, congratulations to the couple on the baby and their engagement!
Over the weekend, we showed you a few Instagram photos from Evelyn Lozada’s baby shower, but more official images and video have come out since then to give you a better glimpse at the celebration. During the shower, Lozada sat down and spoke with Hip Hop Hollywood about how she came up with the “diamonds and diapers” themed party, baby names, and how this pregnancy compares to how things went the first time around with her daughter Shaniece.
Lozada On The Baby Shower Theme
“I didn’t want my baby shower to be too cheesy, baby. I was like, ‘What could we do? What could we come up with?’ So then we decided to do the diamonds and diapers, which, you know every girl loves diamonds, keep it real, not just me [laughs]. But we just wanted it to be different. Not your typical baby stuff.”
Why She Is Enjoying Her Second Pregnancy More
“I haven’t had a baby in a long time and Lord knows that I feel like it’s my first. Everything’s new to me, down to formula. I’m like ‘Oh my God they have organic formula now!’ It’s just a whole new world. But I’m super excited. I feel like I’m really able to enjoy this pregnancy because I’m older and you know I had my daughter when I was young and you’re just going with the flow at that point. But this was planned so I’m able to take it in and enjoy it more.”
Figuring Out Baby Names
“We’re kind of on the fence with a few names so I’m like, ‘Look, when he comes out we’ll just decide what his name is.’ I’m just happy he’s a boy and that he has a pen*s. I’m just going to keep it all the way real [laughs].”
Definitely looked like a lavish affair for a little one! Check out the video clip and a lot more images from Lozada’s baby shower below and on the next page and share your thoughts.
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.
“It’s Been 20 Years Since I Gave Birth!” Evelyn Lozada On The Difficulty Of Having Kids Two Decades Apart
While many people were surprised at the news late last year that Evelyn Lozada is expecting, no one was more surprised than the the mommy-to-be and wife-to-be, herself. Lozada penned an open letter for the site QUÉ MÁS, and she talked about feeling like she had to learn everything about motherhood all over again, since the first time she gave birth was more than 20 years ago.
Lozada discussed how different things are compared to when she had Shaniece, including the type of food babies eat and the toys and furniture they have, and why she’s not so sold on breastfeeding:
Okay, so we all know the last time I gave birth was over 20 years ago with my daughter Shaniece. Currently, I’m seven months pregnant and every time I look at my belly, I still can’t believe it. ¡Ay Dios mío!
A lot has changed in the world of babies since the last time I gave birth–back then my daughter had a wind-up swing for crying out loud!
Because SO much has changed in the mommy world, I often ask my girl, Danika–who has three kids–what to do! For instance, I had NO idea that baby food now comes in pouches and I didn’t know that you can now purchase organic baby food!
Twenty years ago, breastfeeding wasn’t the thing to do. Now I’m getting all of this advice about breastfeeding and how to do it and breast pumps! Still, to be totally honest, I’m not sure that I want to go the breastfeeding route this time around.
There are so many things I have to learn (or re-learn) before my blessing is born. I love that I’m able to go through the process of being pregnant and becoming a mom all over again. This really represents a new beginning to me and as a more mature mother, I plan to do a host of new things with my second child. After all, I learned a LOT from raising Shaniece and she has become a lovely young woman who I’m SO proud of!
I can see why Lozada would have all these questions, things are definitely different, especially when you walk in stores asking for a bassinet and folks act like it’s so archaic. Have you ever felt like this after having a child many years after the last time you gave birth? Check out her full letter over at QUÉ MÁS and discuss.
If it wasn’t for reality television, we would probably never have known them (or at least as not as well as we do now) but these reality stars decided to turn up their noses on the very thing that made them famous or resurrected their careers.
Tia and Tamera Mowry
Identical twins Tia and Tamera Mowry first gained fame as twin teens separated at birth on the sitcom “Sister, Sister.” The twins took a break from Hollywood to attend college before resurrecting their acting careers again. For six seasons, Tia played Melanie Barnett Davis on the hit show “The Game” but the sisters would work together again with their reality show “Tia & Tamera” on the Style Network. The show premiered to record numbers on the network but as each season passed so did its popularity and it was canned at the end of 2013, although according to them it was time to them to get back to living their lives off camera.

Jennifer Williams is good. Actually, she’s more than good. The reality star’s life seems to have taken a huge turn for the better since departing from “Basketball Wives” and the toxic relationship with her estranged husband, Eric Williams.
“Being on ‘Basketball Wives,’ my life has definitely changed,” Jennifer told Live Life in Style.
Though the show was somewhat of a negative experience, Jennifer says it forced her to make some major life changes—including divorcing Eric. She has since found love in music producer Cisco Rosado.
“I think it kind of forced me to make some decisions that I might not have made if I wasn’t on the show. In regards to my marriage, I was comfortable. It was convenient, thought it wasn’t the best thing. It was what I knew, but at the same time I knew I wasn’t happy.”
“It kind of forced me to make a decision to go out and find happiness,” she said. “I’m in a happy space right now.”
Of course, Jennifer walked away from “Basketball Wives” with more than just one severed relationship. She also addressed the end of her friendship with Evelyn Lozada.
“I also had another friendship that deteriorated…but I’m a firm believer in ‘Everything happens for a reason. If this is the direction that my life is supposed to go in, then I just have to embrace it and keep moving forward.”
She went on to say that she believes conflicts she faced with Eric and Evelyn only added to the public’s ability to relate to her.
“I’m not the first person that went through it,” she continued. “I think when you see someone on TV going through things people want to relate. I’m not the first woman to be in a bad relationship. Every woman has been in a bad relationship, whether you’ve had a horrible boyfriend, or a horrible husband but you can relate to that. And we’ve all had issues with our girlfriends. I think the key is to be honest with your situation. When you have cameras in your face, you may not always want to expose certain feelings. I think it’s important to do it because you never know who’s watching or who can learn from it. If I can save one woman from being in a bad relationship and just convince them to have the courage to go out there and find what makes them happy, that makes me happy.”
Hopefully we’ll get to take a peek at her fabulous life when her new reality show airs.
“Entertainment and reality TV display women so negatively,” Jennifer added. “It’s not all like that. I think it’s very important that women do get together and there doesn’t have to be drama. We can have a good time, sip a cocktail, shop, have great conversation and lift each other up.”
Her last season of “Basketball Wives” ended on such a negative note, we’re glad that she finally found happiness.
One year and four months after filing for divorce from troubled ex-husband, Chad Ochocinco, Evelyn Lozada is preparing to take the plunge yet again. The former “Basketball Wives” star announced her engagement to boyfriend and father of her unborn child, LA Dodgers player Carl Crawford, on Christmas Day via social networking site Instagram. She snapped a photo of her hand with its blingy new addition—a $1.4 million ring—with a caption that reads: “Yes!” Following her initial photo, she shared another photo of the ring, thanking luxury jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills, who also designed the beautiful ring that Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade used to propose to Gabrielle Union last week.
Though word of Evelyn and Carl’s relationship first leaked back in May amid reports that the LA Dodger pulled out all stops to wine and dine her, their relationship was not confirmed until last month when the 38-year-old mom-to-be announced that she was six month pregnant.Days later she confirmed that the baby was Carl’s. The engagement comes as a bit of a surprise since earlier this month Ev expressed that she’s in no rush to get married.
“I definitely would get married again,” said the reality star. “I still believe in love … I’m not one of those people that’s like ‘we need to get engaged, we need to get married.’ No, absolutely not. I feel like that’s going to come, just like with the baby, let it come. I’m not forcing anything, so if it happens, it happens.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that the 31-year-old MLB player will even get a chance to bask in beauty of his recent engagement and new baby without drama. Just a couple of days ago we told you he’s attempting to take his longtime ex-girlfriend and mother of his 5-month-old daughter and 9-year-old son, Amy Freeman, to court. Earlier this week we told you that Amy was seeking to relocate from Arizona to California in what she claims to be an attempt to move her children closer to their father. However, Carl is trying to block the move, insisting that she is simply looking to take advantage of California’s favorable child support laws. Hopefully these three adults involved can devise a plan to co-parent in a way that is beneficial for the children involved.
