Joanna Gaines Baby Bump: It’s Here!

Joanna Gaines may be ending her career on Fixer Upper.

But the beloved HGTV star isn’t exactly preparing to take it easy.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

As confirmed by Joanna and her husband, Chip, about five weeks ago, the couple is expecting its fifth child.

Yes, it’s FIFTH child.

So while Joanna may be leaving the spotlight of television for awhile, she’ll be busier than ever at home, feeding a tiny human being, changing its diaper and trying desperately to sleep.

For now, however, Gaines still has enough energy to step in front of a camera, as evidenced by the very first snapshot of her growing belly.

“Photoshoot today and there’s no hiding this baby bump anymore,” she wrote on Instagram over the weekend.

The home design guru then shared a handful behind-the-scenes picture from a photo session.

In one images, Joanna can very clearly be seen making a heart with her fingers over her bump. Check it out below!

Joanna and Chip are already parents to four young kids:

Drake, 12, Ella Rose, 11, Duke, 9 and Emmie Kay, 7.

The quartet has sometimes been featured on episodes of Fixer Upper, but just briefly and just mostly in the background, during family dinners or that sort of thing.

The reality star talk often about their loved ones, but have done an admirable job keeping them out of the public eye.

They announced to the world that Joanna was pregnant back in early January, via a typically silly and sweet post by Chip.

“Gaines party of 7,” he wrote at the time. “(If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines.”

What made this so silly and sweet? Consider the photo that accompanied the caption:


A couple months prior to this major reveal, Chip and Joanna also announced they were ending Fixer Upper after five popular seasons.

Shortly afterward, word spread that perhaps the pair were just angling for a new contract, but it’s now clear they were planning to expand their family instead.

For some incredible and very depressing reasons, the Gaines have received some backlash for this pregnancy, with some critics actually shaming them because they have such a large family.

We’re not even sure how to respond to those people.

There was also some disturbing chatter, after Joanna showed off her Ultrasound, that something might be very wrong with the baby

Hopefully, these predictions were inaccurate, however, and we have no reason at the moment not to think things are going smoothly for Joanna and her son or daughter-to-be.

Let’s all pray the baby will be okay.

And let’s all send a congratulatory note to Chip and Joanna!

We’ve followed their professional adventures for years and are excited to see where this blessed turn in their personal life takes them next.


Khloe Kardashian: Check Out MY Baby Bump!

Khloe Kardashian has sent a pretty clear message to Kylie Jenner.

And it goes something like this:

Move over, sis! Your time in the spotlight is up!

Indeed, the entire Internet is aflutter with talk of Kylie after the 20-year old gave birth to a daughter on February 1 and then announced her name on Tuesday afternoon.

Stormi. Her daughter’s name is Stormi Webster.

But that’s in the past.

The birth has taken place, Kylie (or a nanny) is now up all night with the precious bundle of joy and Khloe is ready for the world to move on…

… to HER impending precious bundle of joy!

Lest anyone forget, Kardashian is also pregnant.

This actually has been easy to overlook because sister Kim welcomed a third child via surrogate a few weeks ago (say hello to Chicago West!), while Kylie just welcome her very first.

Last, but certainly not least in this shocking run of Kardashians and kids, Khloe is expecting either a boy or a girl with serious boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

And she’d like to remind everyone of this fact.

“Baby mama KoKo! 29 Weeks and counting,” Khloe wrote as a caption to the first photo shared above last night.

In the image, the mother-to-be is very made up and looking quite intense.

She has full lips and a face full of mascara and her hand is cradling her baby bump.

“Glam: @styledbyhrush Hair: @andrewfitzsimons Hair Color: @traceycunningham1,” Khloe added in her caption, giving props to ber beauty team.

Unlike her half-sibling, Khloe has not kept quiet about this pregnancy… nor has it even prevented her from taking off some clothes online.

To wit, the photo she shared right before this baby bump image:

“The first trimester is the worst,” Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres on a recent visit to her talk show, opening up and adding:

“And no one knows you’re pregnant yet, and you feel the most uncomfortable.”

She continued at the time, gushing over Thompson:

“He’s so great, just during the pregnancy, I think he makes me more excited, too.”

As for what gender child Kardashian will give birth to this spring?

She is yet to say. However…

Khloe posted some photos on Snapchat this week from her baby shower, which was adorned with pink decorations.

Yes, PINK.

This would imply that Khloe is set to be the third straight member of her family to welcome a baby girl in a matter of months.

Back in late December, Kardashian excitedly announced she was expecting via a close-up of her baby bump and a caption that partly read:

My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!

I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing.

I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can’t believe that our love created life!

We know how badly Khloe has wanted to become a mother and we know what kind of struggle it has been for her.

We therefore could not be happier for an E! reality star. Congrats, Keeks and Tristan!


Joy-Anna Duggar Cradles Baby Bump, Shotgun Wedding Rumors Won’t Die

Joy-Anna Duggar, her husband and two of her brothers posed for a cute pic this week, but all eyes were on the unborn member of the family.

Check out Joy’s burgeoning baby bump, people!

As always, her belly created an online firestorm.

Talk of Joy-Anna getting pregnant before marriage has circulated since … well, before her marriage, and especially after she got pregnant.

There had already been chatter about them breaking courtship rules, and they started a family in a hurry even by Duggar standards.

Joy announced she was expecting almost exactly 12 weeks after her wedding in late May of last year, and looked even further along.

Was it really a shotgun wedding to Austin Forsyth? We don’t know for sure, and likely never will, but the great due date debate continues.

Some fans say Joy-Anna Duggar’s due date is February 22, based on an online registry attributed to the 20-year-old Counting On star.

The family has only revealed that she’s due in late February or early March, while others insist that they have never officially said anything.

(There’s also a theory going around that Joy already gave birth, though the above photo would appear to have shot that nonsense down.)

In any case, the Forsyths, who share a joint Instagram account, posted the image of Joy-Anna on the far left cradling her growing bump.

She’s wearing a tight t-shirt and a smile, while husband Austin and two of Joy-Anna’s brothers also look to be having a good time.

They captioned the pic, “Hanging with the bros!”

That they are. Though almost no one seemed to think much about the other two guys (sorry, John David) in the comment section.

Joy also raised eyebrows when she remarked that the pregnant Jinger Duggar would be giving birth just six months after her.

That math doesn’t quite match up with the timeline offered by the Duggars and their end-of-February-or-start-of-March claims.

As for the registry date? Assuming that’s her “official” due date, it’s less than nine months after her wedding, but not by much.

The simple fact that she’s pregnant at this moment pretty much disproves the shotgun wedding theory, as we’re now in February.

It’s almost certain that there was no rescheduling of her nuptials, as rumored, although certain skeptics still remain unconvinced.

From a numerical aspect, February 22 is 37 weeks from her wedding night, and a typical pregnancy is approximately 40 weeks.

However, that 40-week date is typically calculated from the date of the woman’s previous period, so it could very well be the case.

In any case, the matter is far from resolved, and the couple has not commented on any shotgun wedding/premarital sex chatter.

Obviously, the only reason this is even a story is the fact that the Duggars pride themselves on their courtship rules and restraint.

There are no full-frontal hugs allowed before engagement, let alone sex; Joy and Austin would be breaking family protocol hard.

Only time will tell if the birth of their first child sheds any light on this debate, or if it remains an ambiguous mystery long afterward.


Amber Portwood Debuts Baby Bump!

Even though Amber Portwood confirmed her pregnancy a while back, we actually saw her reveal that she’s expecting to her mom and cousin just this week, on the latest episode of Teen Mom OG.

But obviously, that episode was filmed months ago, and we haven’t really had a good real time view of Amber for a while.

Until now, that is, because Amber has debuted her baby bump. Take a look!

Right around Halloween, the world learned that Amber Portwood is pregnant again. Coming from Amber, that’s not exactly a horror story.

(Coming from some of the scarily bad Teen Mom stars, it would be)

Like Gary Shirley, we hope that this can be Amber’s new beginning.

Everyone hopes that she and Andrew Glennon can be great parents to this baby (and to Leah!) and maybe get a little better at managing her money.

But that’s in the future — Amber still has a long ways to go in her pregnancy.

But check out this baby bump!

Yes, we know that their height difference is a lot. It’s distracting.

Even though Amber Portwood is tiny at only 5-foot-4, Andrew Glennon is still legit tall. The dude is 6-foot-7. In another era, he would have been a king’s guard. Or perhaps a king.

In this era, he works in television, but studies have shown that their height difference stacks the odds in their favor when it comes to relationship longevity.

And yes, we know that it’s weird. So is romance. So is human nature.

Anyway, once you get past the height difference, check out that baby bump.

Andrew Glennon seems to be settling in and becoming a part of Amber Portwood’s family.

Not everyone is prepared to become a reality star overnight. Especially when it happens via a Teen Mom OG cast member.

(And especially since it’s rumored that Andrew Glennon, or at least his family, may be well off financially)

But Andrew’s taken to it like a duck to water. Mostly.

Some still say that Andrew Glennon may have acted improperly and seduced Amber when she was emotionally vulnerable, but … we’re not sure if that flies anymore.

They’re still together and this is clearly more than a fling.

As you may recall, this pregnancy wasn’t exactly planned. Amber and Andrew had only been dating for a matter of months when Amber became pregnant.

Even so, they’re making the best of it.

In late 2017, Amber announced that she’s expecting a boy.

She plans to name him James.

We don’t know the day that she’ll give birth — quite frankly, even the best due date is just a highly educated guess — but some speculate that she could give birth as early as May of this year.

Will Amber Portwood get things right this time, as a mother and as a partner?

Will Andrew Glennon stick around in this (still new) relationship long enough for little James Glennon to grow up with two parents?

For that matter, will Leah enjoy being a big sister or will the novelty of having a baby brother wear off quickly?

All that we can do is hope for the best.

The only thing that most fans can say with certainty is that this whole situation seems to be much, much better than anything from the days of that total creep, Matt Baier.


Kate Middleton Baby Bump Watch: It’s Pretty Big!

Earlier this month, Prince William shaved his head.

And we’re being generous when we say most observers are not big fans of the Royal Hunk’s new look.

As always, however, it’s a very different story when the topic turns to William’s wife and her most recent appearance.

Having just entered her third trimester, Kate Middleton kicked off a four-day tour of Switzerland and Norway this week.

And she did so with a style!

As you can see above and below, Middleton can’t hide her growing baby bump any longer, not that she’d ever want to do so, of course.

This isn’t Kylie Jenner we’re talking about here.

Kate’s pregnancy isn’t a secret nor is it anything to be ashamed of.

Happy to share her miraculous news and expecting state with an adoring public, Middleton joined William on the ice in Stockholm on Tuesday to take part on the sport of bandy hockey.

Yes, this is a real sport. You can Google it.

Middleton even walked on to the ice to knock some pucks into a goal, but there was never any concern about the beauty falling and injuring herself.

Organizers of the event laid out an actual red carpet on which she could stand while she played.

Insiders say Kate and Williams shared some hot chocolate with school children at the gathering and were then given their own bandy hockey jerseys.

Later on in the day, Middleton (who may or may not be expecting twins) sat for a lunch at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.

It was hosted by King Carl KVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia and other attendees included Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel.

At one point, all three couples came together for a rare, giant royal photo op in one of the beautiful palace drawing rooms.

We don’t have the picture for you here, but Middleton was wearing the same green dress you see above for the snapshot.

Kate and William will be welcoming their third child in April.

The exact due date has not yet been confirmed.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, of course, are already parents to a son named George and a daughter named Charlotte; both are very adorable and precious.

According to a Royal spokesman, Middleton plans on only skipping one event while in Norway in order to rest.

Other than that, she will be an active participant alongside William, proving once again what we’ve known for ages.

This really is Kate Middleton’s world. She’s the most beloved female on the planet.

The rest of us can only bow down in admiration.


Jinger Duggar Baby Bump: First Adorable Photo!

The pregnant Jinger Duggar has officially debuted her baby bump online, and she looks absolutely adorable at the 15-week mark. 

The Counting On star gave fans and followers their first glimpse of her growing belly at the early stages of her second trimester:

“Baby Vuolo is growing!” Jinger, 24, captioned the photo.

Wearing a fitted black t-shirt, the reality star stands next to a chalkboard reading, “15 weeks” and “baby is the size of an apple.”

Jinger concluded her caption with a quartet of hashtags: “#15weeks #babybump #babyisthesizeofanapple #pregnantmama.”

Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo, 30, announced earlier this month that they were expecting their first child together.

“The past fourteen months have been the best of our lives,” the married couple said in their joint pregnancy announcement.

JinJer gushed that “we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage.” 

“We both looked forward to the joys of marriage but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be.”

“Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning!”

“Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: we are expecting our first child!” they continued, giving thanks to above. 

“We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”

They concluded: “Psalm 139:13-14 13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”

“14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”

The Counting On couple does not know what gender their child is, though they’ll be “happy either way,” Jinger said.

“I would love to have a little princess,” admitted Jeremy, who hopes their first-born child will be just like his wife.

“I am praying that the baby will look like, act like, talk like, be like Jinger, and so I’ve asked everyone else to pray as well.”

That’s high praise. Why a girl?

“I was a little terror as a child, so I’m hoping that the little one will be as much like Jinger as possible,” Jeremy joked.

For what it’s worth, Jinger says she has an inkling that it will be a boy – her sisters Jill and Jessa both have two each.

In any case, their announcement was a long time coming as far as some fans were concerned, as they wed in 2016.

That’s over a year ago!

In Duggar years, that’s like five years. We kid, but most times, married couples don’t wait that long to start a family.

Jessa and Jill both announced they were expecting within a few months of tying the knot, and Joy one-upped that.

Joy-Anna, who is also pregnant and due within the next month or so, got pregnant on (or before) her honeymoon.

Jinger has always done her own thing, though, and from the way Jeremy is trolling Jim Bob, that’s likely to continue.

Anyway, congrats again!


Chrissy Teigen Displays Baby Bump, Reveals Sex of Baby #2!

As we all know thanks to an adorable video featuring baby Luna, Chrissy Teigen is pregnant with Baby #2!

That’s wonderful news for her and for John Legend. And, for that matter, for Luna — who will turn 2 this April. And, some time in the next few months, she’ll become a big sister!

Well, following last night’s Grammy Awards, Chrissy took to Instagram to reveal the sex of the baby she’s expecting!

Chrissy Teigen and her husband, John Legend, attended the 2018 Grammy Awards.

Though the pregnant model and social media delight stepped out early (let’s not project our fury over Ed Sheeran somehow winning over much better artists and songs or over Lorde not being invited to perform), she had a treat for fans.

Sharing a photo of herself showcasing her baby bump in a glittering silver gown, Chrissy Teigen added the caption:

“Mama and her baby boy.”

Luna’s going to have a little brother!

Technically, this announcement isn’t the first time that Chrissy and John have revealed that Lune would have a younger brother.

The topic came up when Chrissy Teigen defended using IVF on social media after people said some truly vile things to her about not having tried to conceive naturally.

“Hi Linda, thanks for asking, you complete witch. I tried for about 9 years. Anything else, let me know!”

For the record, it literally doesn’t matter if someone doesn’t try, but of course Chrissy and John tried.

Chrissy decided to go ahead and nip the next big debate in the bud.

“Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah.”

John Legend has also spoken about the couple’s use of IVF, stating simply that they used IVF because traditional efforts to conceive — you know, banging — were not successful.

The technique, in which an egg is fertilized with sperm and then implanted to develop, is controversial in some communities.

For example, some people have a religious objection to some embryos being destroyed in the process, because those microscopic organisms could potentially become human life.

Others worry about a slippery slope. You can choose which embryo to implant, but some worry if it will lead to eugenics. Forget choosing if the embryo has an X or Y chromosome, and think of parents choosing eye color and height and even aptitudes.

Those are fine things to somehow choose for yourself, but troubling for parents to choose.

But none of that means that Chrissy Teigen deserves to be given any grief over it. She’s not producing a science experiment, she’s producing a child.

For some reason, even though Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are absolute darlings, people love to give them a hard time.

Part of that is that the two of them, like any responsible citizens, voice their political opinions and use their platform for good.

Another part of that may be accessibility. Chrissy and John are active Twitter users and engage with followers and replies. Sometimes, that makes trolls want to use that to upset them.

Sometimes, the internet is a treacherous place. Remember when Chrissy Teigen livetweeted her flight from LAX to LAX?

Some truly deranged, disgusting conspiracy theorists tried to use that as evidence that Chrissy and John were “secretly arrested” (what?) and were prevented from leaving the country.

The demented “reason” for their supposed criminal status was being part of some sort of child-abuse cabal that some very paranoid people had imagined for, essentially, any celebrities they didn’t like.

Contrary to what absolute lunatics who listen to Illuminati/pizzagate conspiracy theories might think, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are great parents to Luna and will make great parents for this new baby, too.

As for Chrissy Teigen ducking out of the Grammy’s early … that’s no real surprise.

It’s better than, say, falling asleep at an awards show.

You know, hypothetically.
