Such a rainy, cloudy Wednesday morning! Most are probably dragging to
get out of bed. Well here’s a sip of morning tea to wake you up!
Here’s for starters, baby fever is definitely in the air! Congrats to Kelly
Rowland who revealed to her Instagram followers yesterday that she is
expecting! The 33 year old singer posted a picture to the social media site
that captured a pair of baby Jordan’s next to a larger men’s pair of the same
shoe and captioned the picture “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.” Rowland
exchanged vows with her manager Tim last month in Costa Rica. In
attendance to the matrimonial affair included her former bandmate Beyonce’
and longtime friend LaLa Anthony. After having a past full of dirty laundry
including an abusive relationship, Kelly fans are nothing less than happy for
the mama to be!
Here pictures Kelly Monday night at the “Think Like a Man Too” Hollywood
Premiere, camouflaging any signs of a baby bump with a loose fitting white
blouse and black blazer. As always, she steps out classy and graceful.
Kelly Rowland released this photo about 15 hours ago via Instagram with
the caption “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.”
Mmmm….Sip slowly! In other baby news, another congratulations goes]
out to Kimberly Jones, also known as Lil’ Kim who gave birth to a baby
girl, Royal Reign, on Monday morning at Hackensack University Medical
Center in New Jersey. The 39 year old emcee welcomed into the world a
healthy bundle of joy of 6 lbs 5 oz. and 19.5 inches long. The father of baby
Royal still hasn’t been confirmed; However, rumors swirl of rapper
Mr. Papers holding that position. Hey, well at least she won’t need a stage
name! Be on the lookout for the airing of the baby shower on an upcoming
episode of WE TV’s “CELEBrations” with David Tutera set to air in august.
Oh you know I’ll be tuned in with a nice hot glass of peppermint tea!
And lastly, this baby is ALL grown up! Yes, I’m talking about Miss Keke
Palmer who also graced the premiere of “Think Like a Man Too” in a
fabulous yellow dress with just enough cut out and cleavage to reveal an
under-boob tattoo. Keke strutted in her gold Louboutins looking absolutely
Fabulous! And also speaking of Keke, congrats goes out to her as well on
her new talk show “Just Keke”. Produced by Judge Mathis, the show will air
a four week run on BET Monday-Friday beginning June 30th. At 20 years
old, Keke will make history as the youngest black female to host a talk show!
You go girl! I most definitely will be tuned in for that one!
Hope that tea wasn’t too hot for you! Wouldn’t want to burn your tongue! As
the sun peeks from behind the clouds, Sip slowly and have a fabulous hump
