Kim Kardashian Begs Kanye to Attend Shower; Wills Ready for Royal Baby
Summer is unofficially here, which means we’re counting down to some of the biggest baby bump news of the year. Today, we have Reality TV royalty, English royalty and all the mommy news in between!
First up is Kim Kardashian, whose pregnancy has been an open book on her show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. On the upcoming season eight premier, the whole klan (pun intended) visit the doctor with Kim as she finds out the gender of her baby. Kim and baby daddy Kanye West have kept mum on the gender (although many speculate she’s expecting a baby girl in July,) but in the season opener, her mother, Kris, and sisters Kourtney and Khloe, watch as the gender is revealed. Kim will be celebrating her new bundle of joy with a baby shower on June 2, but reports say she had to beg Kanye to make an appearance because he hates the attention from her reality show.
Can this couple last in the glare of the spotlight?
More baby gender mystery surrounds our English royalty, Princess Catherine and Prince William, but one thing is certain: Kate is wearing her bump in style! The Royal Duchess of Cambridge has just recently begun to show, and has stepped out for many official visits wearing short, fun prints from bright floral to polka dots from a variety of designers.
The royal couple, who are expected to welcome their new baby in late June or early July, are still making their royal rounds. Based on a conversation Prince William had at the Help for Heroes recovery center (a home for injured service members and their families,) Wills is ready for the late nights of newborn parenting. “All the mothers have been looking at me, ‘just you wait, just you wait. Long sleepless nights…’” We don’t think Wills and Kate will have to go at it alone, though.
Working moms have particular challenges when it comes to raising their children, but actress Gwyneth Paltrow thinks she’s found the perfect occupation to mother and work: modeling. Wait..what? She told Women’s Wear Daily that her recent modeling gig with Hugo Boss fragrance was the best job for her while raising her two children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7. “I have had a really good experience working for Boss….such a perfect job when you have kids.” The Iron Man 3 actress told the magazine modeling has fewer time constraints than her first love, acting. Nice work if you can get it!
Is the world ready for another “mini Snooki”? Watch out, world; you may have to be…soon! Snooki has made it clear that she wants more kids, and even told HollywoodLife.com in an interview on May 23 that she thought she was pregnant! However, for now Lorenzo, who will be celebrating his first birthday in August, (Snooki says she’s planning a “crazy” birthday party with farm animals or zebras) will have his mom and dad (and their regular Italian meals) to himself!
What are your thoughts, will Kanye stick around and deal with Kim's constant entourage of paparazzi? Does Gwyneth Paltrow have the work-mom-life thing figured out? And, do you hope for a girl or boy for the royal couple?
