This summer alone, a ton of new celebrity baby announcements have rolled in. With that, its only right that we celebrate the beautiful Black women bringing new life into the world. In the midst of swollen feet, cravings and every other body change that comes with pregnancy, these ladies are making the ultimate labor of love (creating life) look like a walk in the park.
Danielle Brooks is steady working, Eva Marcille is steady slaying and Keyshia Cole is steady teasing her new projects (which, appropriately, including the expansion of her family.)
Take a scroll through the gallery as we big up the celebrity mothers making pregnancy look like a walk in the park.
The hot mama announced to the world that she’s expecting a baby boy with her boyfriend, music artist Niko Khale. The expectant couple just came from a babymoon Catalina island when the happy news was shared. “Surrounded by Loooooooooove. Just enjoying good times and GREAT VIBES. I have a few shows coming up next weekend, DETROIT, MIAMI, #MOTHERSDay is coming. I’m ready for ALL THE Love and GREAT ENERGY,” she wrote on Instagram.
Cole is already the mom of a 10-year-old son named Daniel Gibson, Jr. This is Hale’s first child.
Over the weekend, Cole and her boyfriend partied the night away their baby shower, attended by their closest friends and family. The singer revealed on Instagram that baby number two could be here any day now.
Earlier this month, the Orange Is The New Black star partnered with Clear Blue to announce the big news, holding one of its digital tests with a positive result. “So elated to finally share this news with you all. I’m happily pregnant!” she writes in the caption.
Mama and baby Brooks stepped out for their first red carpet appearance at the Orange Is The New Black season premiere in New York City. “This what you call a Glammed Up Pimp-Mama 😂,” Brooks said on Instagram of her Old Hollywood inspired look. “Thank you Christian Siriano for making look and feel so rich and expensive once again.”
During an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Brooks dished on the highs and lows of pregnancy. “My feet are swelling and I brought some shoes and they don’t fit and they hurt,” Danielle told Meyers during the interview while wearing a cozy pair of slippers. “I’m going into my third trimester tomorrow so I’m going to keep it 100.”
Eva Marcille and her husband Michael Sterling are about to welcome another son! The mommy-to-be made a clever announcement with a photo of herself sipping from a straw while the baby bump “sipped” from its own cup. This will be Eva’s third child and the couple’s second son together.
“Michael and I couldn’t be more excited to announce baby No. 3 is on board!” Marcille told PEOPLE at the time of the announcement. “Looks like little Michael Jr. is going from the baby to the middle child, and Marley will be the boss of them all!”
The reality star and model has been turning all kinds of looks during her pregnancy, including this cute crop top moment. Y’all knew Eva the Diva was going to take this baby bump and make it fashion!
The former Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air actress told the world in April 2019 that she is pregnant with her second child. By the looks of it, her son Edward is excited to be a big brother!
The actress couldn’t be more happy about the arrival of #BabyRasberry “We’re so excited!,” she wrote on Instagram. “They say every pregnancy is different and they ain’t lying. Phew! I’m exhausted this go round, swirling with emotion and starving, like constantly. Feeling very blessed.”
Ali and Dr. Raspberry initially met on eHarmony back in 2015 and tied the knot just a few months later on July 18, 2016.
Yung Miami, one-half of popular rap duo City Girls, decided to let the world in on the closely guarded secret that she was expecting her second child last month. The rapper, who is already the mother to a son, shared a glimpse of her growing baby bump while admitting that the decision to let the world in on her pregnancy was a tough one. “I’ve been going back and forth to share this moment with my fans,” Yung Miami wrote an Instagram photo of herself baring her belly in a sheer robe. “But on MY TERMS! I want this journey to be nothing but positive going forward…”
Who says City Girls Summer is canceled. The rapper has continued holding down the group until City Girls member JT is released, and has been rocking some serious maternity glam while doing it. We’re here for this tie-dye number!
Who says baby bumps don’t belong in crop tops? Mama Miami is looking pretty fly here while onstage at the BET Experience.
