America's Next Top Model winner, Eva Marcille Pigford, announced she is pregnant by boyfriend and singer Kevin McCall yesterday. She is currently five months and tells BET:

"Being able to bring a life into the world is every woman’s dream but for me it's more than just a dream it is a magical, mystical journey which I get to share with this amazing man". "Kevin is the only man who I would share this moment in life with." 

This will be the first child for the couple who took their relationship public last March. Both are 28 years old and are very excited for this new stage in their life. Marcille's career took off in 2005 after becoming the winner of America's Next Top Model's third cycle. She has since glided down many star studded runways as well as acted in movies and TV shows. I'm excited to see what the model, who is known for her uber style, will bring to maternity wear. I predict lots of maxi dresses, over-sized cardigans and of course her trademark turbans. 

"My life continues to be a bundle of incredible experiences," Marcille says. "I get to do this incredible show on BET and I get to be a mom and live this amazing life that God has bestowed upon me. Who could ask for anything more?" Congratulations to the beautiful couple; and I will be sure to keep you updated on her baby bump attire.

Monica and Shannon Brown Welcome their Baby in Style

Songstress Monica and NBA basketball player Shannon Brown threw an extravagant baby shower to welcome their new baby girl who is said to be named Laiyah. The festivities were held at the house of producer and family friend, Jermaine Dupri, this past Saturday. It's the couple's first child together as well as the first girl for both. The star studded shower was planned by party consultant Mindy Weiss. There was pink everywhere! The whimsical carnival theme was executed by lots of pink and peonies. It also consisted of a circus tent, jugglers and stilt walkers.

The baby’s name was revealed to guests on the pink glittery invite designed by Sandi Spells Design and the singer says she chose the name because, “it was girly, feminine and picked by her daughter’s godmother (Tiny Harris) so it has special meaning.”

Guests were greeted by a pink-saddled horse and pony.

“It was very whimsical, just like a Disney princess movie and just as I had envisioned it,” Monica told People Magazine. "There was so much love in the room and everybody had a great time.” The singer who is already a mother to boys Rocko, 8, and Romelo Montez, 5, while Phoenix Sun's guard is son to Shannon Christopher told People magazine  "I know everything about WrestleMania and Tonka Trucks so I’m excited to share shopping dates and manis and pedis with her. But I’m really looking forward to teaching her about life,” says Monica. “I want to be an example to her like my mother was to me.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt Dishes the Details On Her Pregnancy

Jennifer Love Hewitt at the Pampers ¿Love, Sleep & Play¿ launch event in New York City on Wednesday. (Amy Sussman / Associated Press / August 22, 2013

Jennifer Love Hewitt's Client List continues to grow. The ex Party of Five actress is pregnant and flaunting it beautifully. She announced this pregnancy back in June along with her engagement to costar Brian Hallisay.

Here's what she said:                                                                                                                
"[Being pregnant] is an awesome thing," the 34-year-old mom-to-be told People. "It definitely has its moments where you're like, 'Oh my gosh this is crazy,' but it's been beautiful." 
The curvy starlet, has been staying in shape by working out more now pregnant than ever before. Which I totally admire because I haven't had the motivation to lift more than my body weight in 2 months lol.
She said:                                                                                                                                           

"I've actually worked out more pregnant than when I wasn't. I've been working out about five to six days a week," she told the magazine. "I do a lot of swimming, Pilates, yoga — all good stuff for baby and for me. It gets difficult the bigger you get because it's more uncomfortable, but it's important."

Although she says it's been an enjoyable pregnancy, the actress was honest about the little things she's had to get use to while pregnant. 

She told US Weekly:                                                                                                                                 
    "Sometimes it's been tough to adjust to weird little things." "Like your hips go numb at night so you have to keep switching sides, and I started making old-lady noises as I walk down the stairs. You know, things like that."

Hewitt, who is due in December doesn't want to know the sex of the baby as she'd like it be a surprise is honestly just looking to meet the couples new addition, but she and Brian have already started choosing non-traditional names. I know I can't wait to see their gorgeous offspring in these upcoming months.

How to Keep a Sex Life During Pregnancy


Sex can be fun during all stages of a normal pregnancy. Of course, just because sex is safe and fun during pregnancy doesn't mean you'll necessarily want to have it. Many expecting moms find that their desire for sex fluctuates during certain stages in the pregnancy. Also, many women find that sex becomes uncomfortable as their bodies and their body image gets larger. An open line of communication is keen to a healthy sexual relationship during pregnancy. Here are 10 sexy ways that will put you in the mood for getting it on.

1. On your lunch break, treat yourself to a lingerie shopping trip. Try on a variety of options. Buy the one that makes you feel feminine, fierce, drop dead sexy and beautiful. Wear this sexy bra and panties under your clothes during the day. By the time you get home you'll be all set for fun.

2. Mentally replay the hottest night you and your partner spent together down to the very last detail. Repeat.

3. Sexting isn't just for obsequious politicians. Send your lover a raunchy text message. Wait for a response. Text your partner a descriptive play-by-play of everything you plan to do to him once you are alone.

4. Sign up for a pole dancing or cadio strip-tease class; not only is this great exercise for your burgeoning belly but practice makes perfect!

5. Get a Brazilian wax and forget to wear undies on your next date.

6. Fried oysters and red wine isn't a cliche: It really works. Just be sure to not have more than 1 glass of wine.

7. Take a steamy bath. Afterwards, slather rose or cucumber scented lotion over your body. Either of those aphrodisiac scents will drive you insane.

8. Add a "new sex toy" to your shopping and swing by the next time you're out running errands--just make sure it's the very last one.

9. Take a 30 minute nap-- completely naked. You'll wake up refreshed and ready to go.

10. Read an erotic book. When you get to the part that makes you blush, KEEP GOING. Better yet, read that part of your erotic book that makes you blush out loud to your partner.

10 Beauty Tips for Busy Moms


Being a mom and being busy are two of the same. Usually this leads to putting your own needs on the back burner. Looking good doesn't have to cost a fortune nor take a lengthy amount of time. Here are 10 beauty tips for busy moms.

10. Before doing dishes, lotion hands before putting on gloves. Wash dishes as normal using hot water. The heat from the water will soften hands.

9. Witch hazel can replace your expensive skin toners. This natural astringent has many benefits. It can help fight off acne and blemishes, reduce puffy eyes, treat varicose veins, heal bruises, reduce pore size and treat razor and sun burns.You just need a few cotton balls and dab it on the affected area of your skin. And you're good to go.

8. Many condiments found in your refrigerator can be used for an at home hair treatment. Grab  mayonnaise, olive oil, avocado and one egg. In a bowl, combine 1/2 avocado pureed, 1T of mayo (not light), 1t extra virgin olive oil and the yolk from your egg. Mix these ingredients until smooth and creamy. Massage into your scalp and comb through with fingers or a wide toothed comb. Put on a shower cap, or use a plastic bag. For a deep condition, warm with a hair dryer for 5 minutes. Leave on for 20 minutes or longer then wash and condition as normal.

7. You may not be able to visit your manicurists once a week as once was the case-before you became a mom. But that's no excuse to neglect your nail care. Lemons are a great way to maintain cleaner and whiter nails. Rub 1/4 of a lemon on nails, allowing the juices to run over nails. Let sit for 1 minute and voila! Don't forget to lotion hands afterwards to prevent dry hands.

6. A busy mom's makeup kit should contain mascara, an eyelash curler, eyeliner and lip gloss. All of these items can be purchased for well under $20! If you'd like you can also use ColorOn Professional Eye Envy Shadow Kits, which is a adhesive eyeshadow applicator that can be found at Sephora or on their website.

5. Exfoliating your skin is a skin remedy that is super beneficial to smoother and younger looking skin. This can be done your favorite spa or for we busy moms-at home. Simply mix baking soda with your favorite drug store facial cleanser and watch the dead skin disappear.

4. You woke up with puffy eyes and you have to look your best today.  A quick and mess free alternative would be to place something cold on your eyes i.e. a cold spoon, hemorrhoid cream, cool tea bags. Cool objects are only a temporary solution to puffiness-which can be a symptom of another problem like sleep deprivation or allergies.

3. A scarf can drastically change and outfit depending on how busy you are that day- it may be all you have time for. It an be used for different looks and can also cover up a "spit up" stain from your little one.

2. DIY Manicure. Sally Hansen Strips are a perfect way to achieve the look of an expensive manicure without the cost and time restraint.

1. My bath time is my favorite part of the day. A time to unwind and wash off my worries and release tension. Bubble baths are a wonderful inexpensive way to treat yourself. I like to add epsom salt to relax my muscles, 1/2 cup of honey and a cup of milk to keep my skin smooth.
