The world’s most well-known mothers (and mothers-to-be) have been really busy this week! Have you been keeping up with the news? Here are some of the biggest stories …
Carbi B’s Big Reveal
Rumors had been swirling around Cardi B and many claim that the rapper was expecting her first child. There had been no official confirmation or denial—although upcoming appearances, including one at Coachella, have been announced and include performances during, what could be, her third trimester.
In the last week, Cardi released her first album, Invasion of Privacy and gave a very interesting interview to GQ magazine. Nothing compared, though, to her performance on Saturday Night Live because, for the first time, she revealed her baby bump in a custom Christian Siriano gown.
In a video posted to Twitter, the star says “I’m finally free!” and confirms that she and fiancé, Migos rapper, Offset, will welcome a baby this year. Congrats!
Hospital Readies for Royal Baby
The countdown has begun. Temporary “No Parking” signs have been placed outside of St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, West London where Kate Middleton, 36, is expected to give birth sometime this month!
Following the births of Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015, this will be the third child for Kate and Prince William, 35.
Journalists, reporters, and photographers will not be allowed to line up across the street until Kensington Palace announces that Kate is in labor. The world will learn the gender, weight, and time of birth in an official notice from Buckingham Palace.
April is a big month for the royal family. Not only will William and Kate celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary on April 29th but Queen Elizabeth turns 92 on April 21st. Perhaps, she will share a birthday with her sixth great-grandchild!
Kate Gosselin Gets Dating Show
If you thought you’d seen the last of Kate Gosselin on television, you were wrong. First appearing on Jon and Kate Plus 8, the mother of a set of twins and sextuplets has been featured in spin-off series and specials ever since the original show was canceled following the couple’s messy divorce in 2009.
Now that her kids are a bit older (Mady and Cara, 17, leave for college next year!), it seems as though Gosselin, 43, is ready for a little romance. TLC has announced a new show, Kate Plus Date, which will follow her journey as she spends time with suitors who have been vetted by a matchmaker.
Gosselin says she’s looking for someone who has a set career, travels for work (since she’s used to being on her own) and loves dogs. This should be interesting!
