“Sebastian and Christopher are very excited. We’re very, very blessed,” she says. “It was planned. We’ve actually been trying for a couple years. We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]. Chris and I were very blessed to really have one another, to have our family and friends and our God to really get us through that.”
“If I’m encouraging to anybody … it’s not like I’m the poster child for over 40 and pregnant,” Fields, who also starred on Living Single, continues.
“Funny enough, for a minute I thought I was getting pre-menopausal ‘cuz certain things were starting to be irregular and then other symptoms started — my memory and I was clumsier than normal which I couldn’t even believe was possible. Then our son got sick with a stomach virus and I caught it. Chris said, ‘No, babe, you’re a little sicker than Sebastian. You need to go and get that checked out’ and I said,’Okay.’ They tested me and said, ‘Oh honey, you’re not dehydrated. You’re two months pregnant.’”
*Unlike her other sisters, Tamar Braxton has managed to turn her mediocre career and transform it to a reality television power house.
The singer and show’s star is having a great year, without a doubt. She’s got a husband that cares for her, she’s got her miracle baby baking in the oven, she released a hit single and landed a couple of gigs on TV.
It’s truly a Tamar year.
In an exclusive interview with WKYS, 93.9, Tamar spilled the beans about pregnancy and how she got there. She also broke down the sibling feuds brewing as well as her new album, “Love & War.”
The interview is a riot, like anyone would expect. Also catch her bragging that her favorite genre happens to be old school gospel.
Over the weekend, singer/model Cassie threw a festive baby shower celebration for first time mommy, Lola Monroe.
Late, last year we learned that the DC native was expecting with Bad Boy Rapper, Los.
The shower went down at a private home in Hollywood Hills, with folk like Teairra Mari, model Toccara Jones, rapper Hazel-E, and eye lash professional Jammal Buster (who played Mr. Host). During her shower, Lola tweeted:

*Kim Kardashian has the audacity to say she would like some privacy during the first stages of her pregnancy. Yeah, the reality television, media diva queen hog. No way.
Tabloid colleagues Jessica Simpson and Kate Middleton are also preggers and in the media, but Kim says, for her, she wants the early stages to be precious.
Since her boyfriend, Kanye West, in case you forgot, blasted the news on stage at a concert in Atlantic City, N.J., there’s no turning back. Besides, she’s all over the place and doesn’t live a private life – cameras in the house, in her face, on the street, and back stage.
But she blames it on the motherly instincts to be a bit more personal while she incubates the future.
“I think that definitely kicks in where you’re like, ‘OK, I have to go in protect mode,’ and 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 is definitely one of them.”
The new season of her reality show airs Sunday at 9pm E/P on E!
*Our favorite expecting hip-hop couple, Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose are covering the October/November 2012 issue of XXL. Peep a few excerpts from the issue:
Amber On Giving Birth:
“I’m so ready. I’m going all-natural. I’ve decided that I’m going to have an all-natural water birth. No medicine. I want those bragging rights! The next time Wiz has a stomachache or anything, I’ll say, ‘I popped out a baby all-natural.’”
Amber On Wiz:
“[H]e’s just a genuine sweet guy. And that’s what made me fall in love with him. And I just said, “You know what, I don’t care if he’s a rapper.” I don’t care if people say, “Oh, you’re a gold-digger.” I don’t care if people say, “Oh, you went from one rapper to another,” or whatever. I love him. I don’t look at him as a rapper. I look at him as Cameron Thomaz, not even Wiz Khalifa. I just fell so deeply in love with him, I didn’t care what anyone says.”
*Announcing your baby at the MTV VMA’s is the new black. Last year, we learned about Beyonce’s pregnancy, while on the MTV carpet and again, this year–it happened. The ovaries in question, were Amber Rose’s. For weeks, we all speculated and were almost 100% sure and finally (well, it wasn’t really that long) Rose confirmed the news–with her choice of attire. Accompanying her fiance/future baby daddy Wiz Khalifa–it’s now official! She is six months preggos and the couple is thrilled about their new baby. Visit theJasmineBrand.com for more photos of Amber’s pregnancy, red carpet debut and her twitter announcement.
*Celebrities appear to have the best secrets to keeping their body weight just right and bouncing back from babies.
Looking at how Beyoncé went from a curvy, voluptuous woman with a little baby fat in all the right places back to sexy and fit in just a few months, after giving birth to baby Blue Ivy, you have to wonder what she did.
*Precious Star, Gabourey Sidibe is telling reporters that she is excited for co-star, Mariah Carey to become a mother. Although the reports have not been confirmed, Sidibe does not care.
She says she can’t wait until her actress/singer friend has a baby, maybe even twins.
“I have faith that she will be a great mother… she’s loving and nice,” she said.
Carey has yet to comment about the rumored pregnancy, but Sidibe is spilling the beans.
She told UsMagazine.com, “As soon as anyone gets married, everyone’s like, ‘Have babies!’ I’m like that. As soon as my friends get married, I’m like, ‘When are you having babies? Have babies already!’”
