Most of the folk wisdom that well-meaning older relatives offer up to expectant mothers can be easily ignored: Carrying the baby lower in the abdomen isn't a sign that it's a boy, or a girl, or anything other than an indication your abdominal muscles have loosened up a bit.

Stephen Belafonte Reunited With His Daughter Madison

Added: 02.05.2017 18:20 | 75 views | 0 comments

Stephen Belafonte was reunited with his daughter Madison under "strict supervision" on Sunday (04.30.17).
The 41-year-old film producer is currently in the midst of a divorce battle with Mel B, but was allowed to see his five-year-old daughter for four hours at The Ness Centre, a counselling facility in Los Angeles.
Mel has taken out a restraining order against her estranged husband amid claims he was abusive towards the pop star and forced her into threesomes with the family's former nanny Lorraine Gilles.
And last month, their divorce row with Stephen took another twist when Lorraine claimed she had a seven-year sexual relationship with the singer.
The German filed a defamation lawsuit against the former Spice Girl, hitting back at claims in the 'America's Got Talent' star's divorce documents that she and Mel's husband had been "pilfering money" from her, had an affair and terminated a pregnancy after conceiving Stephen's baby.
The former staff member - who is suing for defamation, libel, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress - said Mel has portrayed her as a "homewrecker, prostitute and extortionist" but "in actuality," the 'Wannabe' hitmaker "seduced" her as a "naive and curious 18-year-old foreign exchange student ... with alcohol, fame and casual sex."
Lorraine claims that Mel confided in her when she first came to the States from her native Germany and told her that she and her spouse had an open relationship.
The former nanny said the trio had a threesome shortly afterwards and claims she continued having sex with Mel for the next seven years.
In her legal documents, Lorraine also said: "At no point did Gilles and Belafonte engage in any sexual acts without Brown's knowledge or participation and at no point did Gilles and Belafonte represent to Brown that Gilles was pregnant with Belafonte's child."

Serena Williams' Pregnancy Announcement Was an 'Accident'

Added: 26.04.2017 16:30 | 28 views | 0 comments

Serena Williams didn't mean to announce her pregnancy via Snapchat.
The 35-year-old professional tennis player revealed earlier this month that she is expecting a baby with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian when she took to the photo sharing app to post a snap captioned "20 weeks".
Now, the star has admitted she meant to save the photo for later use, and didn't mean to publish it for the world to see.
She said: "Well, actually it was an accident. I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm going.
"I didn't tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I'd been saving it. And you know how social media is when you press the wrong button ... and [there it was]."
But Serena admits it wasn't the end of the world, as she was planning on breaking the news a few days after her mishap anyway.
She added: "So thirty minutes later, my phone doesn't ring that much, and thirty minute later I missed like four calls and I'm like, 'That's weird,' and then I picked it up and I was like 'Oh no' ... but it was a good moment. I was just going to wait literally just five or six more days so that's okay."
Meanwhile Serena - who defeated her sister Venus to be crowned winner of the Australian Open in January - says she's been "fortunate" enough to not suffer with morning sickness so far, and said despite her pregnancy her tennis career is far from over.
Speaking to Gayle King during her TEDtalk in Vancouver on Tuesday (25.04.17), Serena said: "I've been so very fortunate. I haven't [had any sickness]. Obviously I'm going to have a baby and I'm going to stay fit and kind of come back and play tennis and keep working on my fashion line. That would be really fun."

Amanda Bynes Returns to Twitter

Amanda Bynes has returned to Twitter.
The 31-year-old troubled actress - who has been predominately absent from the social networking site since she was admitted to a psychiatric unit at the end of 2014 - gave fans a nice surprise over the weekend when she shared a photograph online of herself standing next to a beautiful display of flowers looking healthy and happy in her joggers.
Alongside the photo, she wrote: "Stopping to smell the flowers on a gorgeous Sunday!"
This is the first time the blonde beauty has posted anything on the website since February when she felt the need to log back in to address some pregnancy rumors and a fake social media account.
She vented at the time: "I am not @persianla27. I am not getting married and I am not pregnant. I don't understand why twitter won't take @persianla27 down.
"I have asked repeatedly. This person continues to impersonate and harass me and twitter needs to take the account down.
"I repeat: I am not @persianla27. She got into my private instagram somehow and took all my photos and videos. (sic)"
Prior to that, Amanda gave fans an update on her Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising school (FIDM) and admitted she was "really loving it" and learning a lot.
She wrote: "Hi everybody! I haven't tweeted in a long time and I want to say hi! I've been really busy at FIDM, and I just finished my midterms.
"I am really loving school and I feel that I am learning a lot. I enjoy all of my classes and my teachers are excellent.
"I'm really appreciative of all that FIDM is giving me. I've been in school learning about the fashion business so I don't have time to tweet (sic)."
Amanda hasn't had the easiest few years as she was arrested for Driving Under the Influence in 2012 and that kickstarted somewhat of a downward spiral for her.
A few months later she was charged with two hit and runs although these were later dismissed following a financial settlement between her and the victims.
In 2014, Amanda's DUI charge was dropped and she was sentenced to three years probation as part of a plea deal. She also had her licence taken away.
She found herself in hot water once again later that year when she was caught whizzing around the streets of Los Angeles in a car with a suspended licence.
During this time she was also arrested at her home for possession of marijuana, attempting to tamper with evidence and reckless endangerment.
She also raised a few eyebrows following a series of bizarre rants on Twitter and was later placed on psychiatric hold and under the conservatorship of her mother.
She was released from the facility early and went on to focus on her fashion dreams.
