Michael Bublé And His Wife Are Having A Baby Bublé!

Buble, the Canada-born crooner, and his wife Luisana Lopilato, is pregnant with their first child. The couple announced on Thursday that they are expecting with a 22-second YouTube video set to the song “I Just Haven’t Met You Yet.” The video starts with the text “Mike, LU and Mini Buble!!!” and displays images from his wife’s live ultrasound as well as cute photos of the couple.

“We’re having a baby Bublé!!!” was written in both English and Spanish with audio of children cheering.

Bublé and Lopilata, an Argentinian actress, were married in 2011 in Buenos Aires. The happy couple has always been very vocal about their desire to have children. Soon after their nuptials Buble told ET Canada, “I’ve said to her a million times I’d love to have kids. “But I always say to her when you’re ready — when you feel like you’ve lived and you’ve partied and done all the things you want to do. When you’ve worked your butt off, then tell me.”

He added, “All my friends have babies so every time one of them says, ‘Guess what, you’re going to be an uncle,’ part of me is so happy for them and the other part of me is jealous.”

Lopilato also announced the pregnancy news on her Facebook page:

I wanted to share with you this great joy with which God has blessed our families and us. Thanks to my family for being with me in every second of my anxiety for wanting to tell, and take care of me with love as they do every day. Thanks to my friends for being as happy as me and giving me the most beautiful hugs. And thanks to God for giving me one of the most beautiful joys and opportunities that a woman can get.

The couple did not reveal how far along the 25-year-old actress and model is in her pregnancy.

Congratulations to the adorable couple on their pregnancy!

Skakira Gives Birth To Baby Boy!

Congratulations to Columbian songstress, Shakira, 35, and her boyfriend, professional soccer player Gerard Pique, 25. The two welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday, according to Shakira’s personal website.

“We are happy to announce the birth of Milan, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain,” the statement read. “The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification. “

Shakira had already hinted to her fans via Twitter, where she has more than 19 million followers, that her baby was due to arrive soon. Tuesday morning she tweeted, “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak”

Just last week Shakira announced she and Pique were throwing a “virtual baby shower” to support UNICEF and would “soon be welcoming” their first child, though they did not specify any dates.

The couple reportedly scheduled the birth so that Pique could be sure to be there to welcome their baby.

Congratulations to Shakira and Gerard for their baby boy!

Kim Kardashian Is Looking To Be More Private In Her Pregnancy

Kim Kardashian, who has never been one to shy from the limelight, surprised everyone with Kanye West’s impromptu announcement of her pregnancy at his concert in Atlantic City, NJ on Dec 30th. Amazingly Kim was able to go under the radar as tabloids speculated over Jessica Simpson’s quick second pregnancy and then focused on Kate Middleton’s acute morning sickness.

Kim said it was nice to be out of the media spotlight during the early stages of her pregnancy while the royal couple got all the attention.

“I’m obviously so happy for them, but if anything I loved the privacy, ” the 32-year-old reality TV start said in an interview last Wednesday.

Of course that bit of privacy is over now that the “Big Reveal” was made by boyfriend Kanye West at his concert. Kardashan says that her motherly instincts have made her more guarded in her personal life now that the word is out.

“I think that definitely kicks in where you’re like, ‘Ok, I have to go in protect mode,’ an as ironic as it sounds, you live your life on a reality show but then when you grow up…certain things change your life that make you want to be more private and this I definitely one of them.”

Kardashian and West went public with their relationship in March. Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries in August 2011 and their divorce is not finalized.

Kardashian is due in July.

A new season of her reality show with her sister Kourtney, “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” premieres Sunday on E! (9 p.m. EST).

Jenna Bush Hager Announces Pregnancy

It seems that every day a celebrity or household name is expecting a baby. The latest in the line of famous pregnancies is former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager who is celebrating her first pregnancy with her husband, Henry Hager.

The mom-to-be recently reported to access Hollywood, “I’m feeling great. My parents are really excited, obviously. This is the one gift they’ve been bothering me about.”

“They’ve been harassing me and my husband about it for five years,” she continued, laughing. “Literally, at our rehearsal dinner they brought it up…But they’re really thrilled of course.”

Bush Hager, who is a correspondent for the Today Show, revealed her pregnancy news publically on the program last week. She’s due in the Spring 2013 but still needs to make preparations for the baby.

“We still have a while to go and really we’re just celebrating the gift that will come in several months,” Bush told Access Hollywood.

“A White House Christmas: First Families Remember,” premieres on Thursday, December 20 at 8 ET/PT.

Hosted by Meredith Vieira, the special looks at Christmases past and present and features members of presidential families over the last 50 years, including First Lady Michelle Obama, and former First Ladies Laura Bush, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barbara Bush and Rosalynn Carter.

“Warm and fuzzy doesn’t really describe it,” Bush Hager said when asked about the memories that spring to mind when thinking of her Christmases at the White House during her dad’s two terms in the Presidency.

“The White House is such a magic place during the holidays… People come from all over the country to decorate it and then to see it, and you know, it’s just a really special place and that’s one of the reasons that we produced this special, all of these women and men – Michael Regan, as well — we all have had the privilege of living history and being in this place so we wanted to share some of that magic.”

TummyStyle congratulates Jenna Bush Hager on her first pregnancy and wish her all the best.

Bikini Thief Maternity Swimwear New At TummyStyle.com!!

This hip and happening brand is worn by famous celebrities all over the world and is now made for maternity too! The owner/designer of Bikini Thief, Whitney Anderson, comes from a family of boat captains and fisherman in Cape Cod and the island of Martha’s Vineyard. With this lovely ocean backdrop and idealic childhood she has weaved together a tapestry of colors and patterns that are not only beautiful fabrics but designed to fit your curves with comfort and style.

Cover model Kate Upton recently rocked the Classic Bikini Thief striped sailor style. This French classic style never gets old or goes out of style. Thin sideways stripes bring out the inner beauty in this suit as well as its model. For maternity, sideways stripes, as opposed to wide horizontal stripes are flattering and slimming.

Megan Fox was also spotted seaside recently in the Bikini Thief Zuma style which sports a solid black bottom and thin black and white stripe bikini top with ruffle detailing. Mixing and matching solid bottoms with patterned tops is a popular style now and a fun way to mix up your collection for a whole new look. Buy some basic black and chocolate bottoms and go for it with your bikini tops!

Kate Bosworth is also a Bikini Thief fan. She was recently spotted knee deep in the ocean in the Sayulita Suit. This suit also features a cute black and white stripe design with a cute vintage style sweetheart bikini top and hipster bottoms.

Typically a top selling designer, who tips their toe into maternity swimwear, may make a misstep or two before getting it right for right maternity cut and fit. This is not the case for Bikini Thief. We were thoroughly impressed with the quality, detailing and fit of these maternity suits, including superior built in bust support with seamless shelf bras and overall support and comfort in the design. Here are a few of the styles we liked best:

Among the Maternity Collection for Bikini Thief, a personal favorite is the Mal Pais. This suit makes a statement with a bold and playful seaweed pattern in either royal blue and black or coral and black. This two piece maternity Tankini has a gold metal ring at the top of each fully linked cup. The back features thick criss-cross straps that have adjustable buttons at the base of each strap in the back. The bikini brief bottoms are fully lined with full coverage in the back.

A super romantic style is Bikini Thief’s Pisces Dream that comes in both bright pink and grey fish pattern and citrine yellow and grey fish pattern. This maternity two-piece tankini is truly dreamy. It features a gathering in the center for a sweetheart style accented with striped detail. Adjustable striped straps that match the bottom design go over the shoulders and the bra is fully lined for extra support. The sides of the stop have adjustable ruched edges with stripe ties on the sides. The striped bottoms have an extra support belly band and are fully lined with full coverage in the back. Pisces Dream is an elegant and beautiful style with fantastic fit and function.

The Asian infused style of the St. Bart’s two-piece maternity tankini comes in both bright red and black coral embroidered flower design or the inverse of black with red coral flower design. Either way, the colors and pattern is stunning. Both color choices are made the same with a gathered center top and fully lined shelf bra with wide comfortable criss-cross straps in the back. Adjustable buttons are at the back of each strap in the back so that you can truly swim with support and without fear in this suit! The bikini brief bottoms are a solid color and are fully lined with full coverage in the back. This suit will be your go-to suit throughout your pregnancy!

Kate Deals with Severe Morning Sickness

Although we would like to say congratulations are in order for the Duchess of Cambridge and her husband Prince William, it seems it may be a long 9 months of pregnancy for the royal couple with their recent announcement of Kate’s pregnancy along with severe morning sickness. Kate was said to be on the mend and “feeling better” Tuesday after her second day in a London hospital, according to the statement from St. James Palace.

Kate is believed to be only in her first trimester, possibly around 8 weeks pregnant, and this announcement is undoubtedly much sooner than they would like. However, the strong outpouring of support for the Duchess may be just what they need to deal with what could be a very challenging pregnancy ahead for Kate. Her condition, diagnosed as hyperemesis gravidarum, affects about 1 in 50 women who are expecting. The symptoms are severe vomiting that can last for the full duration of the pregnancy and may lead to dehydration if not treated. Kate is reportedly on an IV drip and taking pills to combat the nausea while she is on a “period of rest” at home.

Although severe morning sickness, as in Kate’s condition, can be serious for the mother and baby if the mother is very dehydrated (some people with this condition can vomit 30 times a day), if treated effectively with fluids and anti nausea medication, the majority of mothers go on to have healthy full term babies. There is even some studies showing that there are fewer miscarriages and preterm labor among women who have nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (although plenty of women experience no queasiness at all and go on to have delightful healthy pregnancies and babies).

Most studies do not explain why nausea in pregnancy can be sign of a healthy pregnancy although it is linked to higher levels of pregnancy hormones such as estrogen and hCG during pregnancy. There is also a slightly greater likelihood of twins with women with greater nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

The Duke of Cambridge is “immensely grateful for the good wishes they have received” his spokesman said. No doubt Kate’s condition will raise awareness of extreme morning sickness during pregnancy.

William, 30, is second in line for the throne after his father, Prince Charles. William’s first child, whether it’s a boy or a girl, would be third in line to become the monarch under the new rules. This baby would be the first grandchild for Prince Charles and the third great grandchild for Queen Elizabeth.

We wish Kate all the best with the rest of her pregnancy and hopefully some relief as she is treated effectively by her doctors and receives plenty of TLC from friends, family and her many well-wishers.

Jessica Simpson Pregnant With Baby Number 2!

Yes, Jessica Simpson is indeed pregnant again with her second child, just seven months after welcoming daughter Maxwell. She also managed to lose 60 pounds of babyweight following her pregnancy while on a healthy diet and collecting $4 million from a Weight Watchers are their celebrity sponsor. I would say all in all she had a very productive 7 months!

Many people might think, wow, what a waste to lose all that weight just to gain it back again in another pregnancy. However, Dieticians and Obstetrians would disagree since starting her pregnancy at a lower heathy weight gives her a far greater chance of a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Just by getting her body in the healthy weight range she has lowered her change of gestational diabetes and preclasmia. Also, I’m sure her hard work will not be thrown out the window during this pregnancy as she will no doubt be exercising more and paying more attention to her diet and pregnancy weight gain.

One of the things I love about Jessica Simpson is that she is so down to earth. We know friends all the time (maybe even ourselves) who gain more the recommended weight during pregnancy or who get pregnant unexpectantly or very quickly after having a baby. Jessica is not above admitting all of these things happen to her as well and she just seems to take it in stride with a smile and a sense of humor, showing us that she is the “girl next door.”

I expect Jessica will have a beautiful and fun pregnancy and I look forward to following her maternity fashion choices. We wish her and her family all the best!

Megan Fox Looks Pretty In A Floral Maternity Dress

Megan Fox showed us once again that pregnancy does not have to be frumpy fashion. The 26 year old actress rocked a pretty black floral knee length dress while out with a gal pal in Los Angeles on Sunday (August 19). She also paired this stylish dress with some fearless high red velvet platform open toe shoes for a truly fierce look to offset the more conservative dress.

Megan has an upcoming film, This is 40, which is the sequel to the hit movie Knocked Up and also stars Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Jason Segal and Chris Dowd.

Florals are a big trend this season in dresses, tops and even swimwear fashion. Some great maternity dresses that play up the floral print are Japanese Weekend’s Red Maternity Sun Dress. This dress would look great with some red pumps, even if you don’t go for the red velour platforms shoes Megan sports!

Olian’s Short Sleeve Maternity Dress is another pretty choice with a shorter hemline and a while backdrop with fushia flowers and stripe accents on the sleeves, neckline and empire waistline.

Also, Olian’s Floral Ombre Dress is season favorite with fitted black bodice top, turquoise waistline and white, black and turquoise floral print apron skirt that is just stunning. This dress can be worn anywhere from a wedding to lunch with friends.

So, throw in some floral prints and play up your feminine side like Megan during your pregnancy. Also, have some fun with your footwear, but you may want to play it on the safe side in those last months of pregnancy when your balance may be challenged!

Reese Witherspoon Welcomes Baby Number 3

Congratulations to Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth who welcomed Tennessee James into their family on Thursday, Sept 27th. Her rep says, “Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.”

Baby Tennessee is Reese’s 3rd child but firth with husband Jim Toth whom he married in March 2011. Reese is already mom to Ava, 13 and Deacon, 8 from her prior marriage.

A source said Reese and her husband were eager to conceive right way. “Right after the wedding, Reese expressed a desire to have a baby with Jim.”

Reese, always in step with fashion, showed off her growing baby bump around the world the past spring and summer. We enjoyed seeing Reese’s many looks and styles throughout her pregnancy, whether it was an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival or lunch out with friends. We will miss checking out Reese’s weekly pregnancy look; however we look forward to seeing her cute baby photos soon!

Jessica Simpson Struggles with Pregnancy Weight Loss

I have to confess I’m a secret Jessica Simpson fan. Although I often find it hard to embrace the personalities of most overly hyped and overpaid Hollywood stars; Jessica

Simpson, despite her billions, seems to bring humor and humanity to all that she does and says.

As the new spokesperson for Weight Watchers we expect this well looked after and richly compensated star to drop the weight in no time at all. I’m sure she has her own private chef preparing every morsel of food entering her mouth which of course conforms to her finally crafted personalized Weight Watcher’s diet plan. No doubt she also has personal trainers showing up at her doorstep 7 days a week and nannies to care for her baby at her beckon call. However, her latest comments on overindulging during pregnancy and her struggles with the pregnancy weight not coming off easily, sure hit home with me and made her all at once the relatable girlfriend next door.

The 32 year old singer, actress and designer who welcomed Maxwell Drew on May 1st admitted to USA Today her lack of knowledge regarding pregnancy pounds, “I didn’t realize it didn’t all come off with the baby.” The 5’4” Simpson’s own weight reportedly topped 170 pounds in March. Daughter Maxwell Drew weighed in 9 pounds, 13 ounces at birth.

“I let myself indulge in everything I wanted because it was the first time I was ever pregnant and I wanted to enjoy it. I wanted to be happy and eat what I wanted.”

“I’m not a supermodel,” she continued. “My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancé and herself.”

Although I’m sure Simpson will look svelte and fit in no time at all, it’s somewhat comforting to know that even the biggest celebrities can fight off those post pregnancy pounds like the rest of us commoners.

It’s also important to remember that nutrition comes first in addressing weight issues after pregnancy. Breastfeeding moms in particular need to make sure they consume adequate healthy calories so they can produce enough breast milk for their babies.
