How does one go about asking the Lord for forgiveness for just being trifling? I mean, what words do you actually use?

After allegedly impregnating a 45-year-old mother of three and her 14-year-old daughter, Pastor Sam of Pentecostal church is on the run.

The Pentecostal Church – which is located along Nnebisi Road, Asaba, Delta State, Nigeria has been on lock-down since  the news broke.

OsunDefender gathered that Pastor Sam hails from the eastern part of the Delta state and that the woman and the daughter have been under evil spells after her husband died of a mysterious stomach problem. Elders of the community where they live, had consulted seers who accused the woman and her teenage daughter of having a hand in the death.The mother and daughter was introduced to the pastor for spiritual cleansing around December 2013 and the pastor in turn had solemnly promised to attack the attackers of the destiny and reverse the course.

Peter Gunz #WCW

Instagram

Last season of Love And Hip Hop New York, left us with tons of drama we were glad we didn’t have in our personal lives. The main story line and love triangle of LHHNY’s season 4 revolved around  Peter Gunz,  Amina Buddafly and Tara Wallace and during the reunion show, Amina Buddafly announced she was pregnant with Gunz’ child after he told viewers his relationship with Buddafly was a mistake. Despite these circumstances and Gunz continuously denying their relationship the two have remained together and it actually looks like Gunz might have the potential to be a decent father based on his Instagram posts.

Today he posted a sonogram picture of his and Amina’s new bundle of joy, allowing fans to pour in their love and support. In the caption for the photo he simply wrote: “My wcw… its a girl!” which is breaking news for fans who were curious about the gender of the couple’s first child together. Though we still don’t have a due date, we can’t help but wonder if their might be a premiere date in the works for some sort of Peter + Amina + baby reality show. You know Mona and VH1 love a spin-off…Either way, congrats to the happy family!

Before giving birth to her newborn son Carl Leo Crawford Jr., Evelyn Lozada made it clear that she would be on a mission to get her body back.

“When I started this pregnancy I was almost 150, but I’ve gained 31 pounds,” the former “Basketball Wives” star said at her Diamonds and Diapers-themed baby shower last month. “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.”

While it takes some women close to a year to shed their pregnancy pounds, Ev added that she’s looking to drop the weight in just two months.

“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.”

This probably explains why the second-time mom is already back in the gym less than two weeks after delivering her baby boy. Over the weekend, Ev announced the beginning of her 30-day challenge to Instagram followers.

“Day 1 of my 30 day challenge! I can’t wait to share my journey with all of you! Details coming on Monday! We can do it together!”

We’ll be interested in seeing her progress over the next 30 days.

Moms, how long did it take you to shed the baby weight?

Amina Buddafly Worried Peter Can’t Provide For Baby But Says Abortion Wasn’t An Option

During the “Love & Hip Hop” reunion show, Amina Buddafly revealed to her estranged husband, Peter Gunz, that she is pregnant. Sadly, it seemed that she announced her pregnancy at the worst possible time in their relationship. Many wondered if their troubled union would push Amina to the decision of terminating her pregnancy, but the 30-year-old songbird says that definitely wasn’t an option for her.

“I’m definitely going to keep the baby,” Amina told Power 105.1′s Vannesa Denis. “That was never a question for me. When I found out, I was really shocked at the reunion, it was all new for me. But there was never really a question at my age. I always knew that if I get pregnant at any time I’m not going to have an abortion. So, it is what it is.”

She also commented on people who call her nasty for keeping a pissy pregnancy test in her bra.

“Well, I don’t know how many women take pregnancy tests, but they got caps. It was closed. It wasn’t just out. It was really the pregnancy test that I took two days before.”

As for whether or not she’s worried about Peter’s financial woes and whether or not he’ll be able to provide for her and the baby:

“Of course [I worry], but he takes care of all of his kids and he does what he can. We’re going to make it work somehow. I’ve always lived my life that way.”

What she does worry about, however, is if Peter is still romantically involved with his ex, Tara Wallace. When asked if she could plant a listening device in any room in the world, the “Love & Hip Hop” star said she’d definitely have one put in Tara’s home.

“That’s easy for me. It would be in Tara’s home, on the couch. They’re not still together. But I don’t know what goes on when they’re there and he spends a lot of time there still. That’s where his kids are, you know. So I’d like to know what their conversations are like.”

I Don’t Want My Stepmother To Watch My Baby, Am I Wrong?

From Essence 

Dear Dr. Sherry,

My father is very excited because I’m eight months pregnant with his first grandchild, a baby girl. He’s already making plans to babysit and spend time with her. While I appreciate his enthusiasm, my issue is that I don’t have a relationship with my stepmother—it doesn’t go beyond pleasantries whenever were see each other. My dad cheated on my mom with her and subsequently married her years later when I was a teenager. My mom passed away last year. I know of many paternal relatives who would expect me to see my stepmother as my child’s grandmother, but I just don’t feel it’s right. After all, they always told me to accept her as my own mother even when my own was alive. I don’t trust her because she and my dad caused my family so much pain. My dad will always be my dad so I must strive to maintain a relationship with him. I’d prefer my dad to interact with my child in my territory because I don’t want a bond to form between my child and his wife. If anyone will be called “grandma” on my side, it will be my maternal aunts. I don’t know how to explain this to my dad, and my husband thinks I’m being too strict. If we happen to visit my dad, his wife may interact with the child some, but I’d never want to leave my daughter with both of them because knowing their dynamic, she would provide most of the care and have influence over her. If it’s just my dad, it’s a different case.

Am I overreacting?

Signed,

Protective Mother, Cautious Daughter

Kenya Moore Says Her Body Has Been Cleared For Baby Making: ‘I Hope To Share Some Great News Soon!’

Kenya Moore Says Her Body Has Been Cleared For Baby Making

It’s no secret that Kenya Moore has big dreams of becoming a mom someday. And according to a recent blog post, she’s hoping to conceive in the very near future. With whom she’s looking to go half on a baby with is a completely different story.

“I underwent fibroid surgery early this year and it was very successful,” Moore gushed in the blog post. “Thanks to my amazing doctor and my many blessings, physically, I’m in amazing condition for pregnancy. I hope to share some great news soon.”

During Sunday night’s episode, fans witnessed the former pageant queen’s eagerness to conceive first hand when she invited a few of the Housewives to a Shaman cleansing, which is believed to assist with fertility.

“You never know how your blessings will come or from whom,” she explained. “The Shamans have been known to bless many women with children after their spiritual cleansing. I brought the women who had been supportive of me in my endeavor to have a family.”

Kenya then went on to express why she chose to exclude some of the cast from the ceremony.

“I excluded Phaedra who cold heartedly remarked about me having ‘scrambled eggs’ and Porsha for consistently taunting me about the men in my life, which leads to a family.”

“With that said, I now see that NeNe’s snide remarks made me regret inviting her,” adds the 43-year-old reality star. “I’ve been more than generous with her, but I am too fed up with her to see any good in her. This was my honest attempt at revealing more of who I am and what my real struggles have been.”

Despite her displeasure with NeNe’s response to the ceremony, she says that it wasn’t a complete waste, as she was able to connect with some of the other ladies.

“I’m thankful that they all were able to share their stories on motherhood allowing us to understand each other more. It truly inspired me.”

Good luck, Kenya!

Surrogacy Blues: Should My Best Friend Sleep With My Husband So We Can Have A Baby?

Dear Abiola,

I am only 33 and infertile. I had an ectopic pregnancy when I was a teen and now the doctors say I have poorly functioning fallopian tubes. I always said I would adopt but then I met my husband. He is such a good man and he really is everything to me. He is 40 with no kids and it’s important to him that he has his own “seeds.”

Neither one of us is financially rich but we are truly rich in the love we have with each other. My husband suggested that I ask my best childhood friend to be a surrogate. I was hesitant because she already had two kids but she said yes. She said that she would be happy to help me have my husband’s baby.

Here’s where it gets a little tricky. We both have good jobs working for the city but by the time you add in a mortgage, two cars and saving for a baby there’s not much left for doing the surrogate mother thing. Of course we’ll be paying food and medical expenses and stuff like that for my friend We’re thinking that my man and my best friend could get pregnant the old fashioned way. As far as I know, neither one of them is attracted to each other. My friend is a single mom so it’s all clear on her side.

Would it be the worst thing if my friend and my husband have sex so I can give my man the family he always wanted?

Signed,
