carla at somethingaboutbaby.com on

Her bump is looking good. She looks terrific.

jasmine on

She looks beautiful as always…a little tired. It seems like she’s been pregnant forever!

(to kim, She’s Brazilian, and many Brazilians have a mixed background.)

Keila on

It’s a girl.

Keila on

I meant to say… I think it’s a girl

ERICKA on

She looks miserable!…it was hot today.

Judy on

She’s multi-racial. You can tell by her hair and her features. It’s very common in Brazil.

This is going to be one beautiful baby.

iluvallbabies on

Kim she is Brazilian…

and beautiful!

Amy on

ShopLittleGifts on

She looks great – just really healthy and energized. Can’t believe she’s only a few weeks away.

I don’t think is a tan, Kim.
She’s Brazilian :)
She looks gorgeous! can’t wait to see the baby :)

Lilly on

She’s Brazilian, Latin Americans come in all shades.

Ana on

I was asking the same thing Kim? LOL, I think that’s is tan, but she certainly has some black ancestry on her veins.
Whatever, her baby has everything to be gorgeous, the mom and the dad!

Ana on

About my last post, LOL, which hasn’t been posted yet, well, what I meant is that she does have black ancestry for sure, a grandparent, dunno, but mostly white. Now she’s pretty tan too.

Don’t ask me why I’m doing this. LOL I’ve heard Brazil is the country where more people suffer of headaches, well, maybe I’m Brazilian and I don’t know!

Well, the baby is coming soon!

chris on

I can’t wait to see their baby!

Kim – Camila is Brazilian, so she is likely a mix of European, African and Amerindian.

tegan on

she looks really pretty-and pregnant!. Not much longer now.

Olivia on

whoever she looks alike she just looks stunning!

Kayla on

Camilla is a Pardo from Brazil. The Pardo people are a mixed race group of European, African and some Amerindian. According to the most recent census of Brazil, the Afro-Brazilians are now the largest group in Brazil. She favors Halle Berry because they are basically of the same ethnic ancestry(European/African) though of different cultures; Halle North American, Camilla, South American.

candykane on

her pregnancy just flew by.

Nita on

Wow, her pregnancy seens like it went by fast, she looks tired and ready. Almost to that just give my a big shirt and some sweats, who cares, I still look good stage.

Maybe this will help. I am from Brasil ( we use a s not z). And I have the same skin type as Camila Alves. Except my hair is naturally curly. Slavery lasted longer and brought more slaves to Brasil than any other country. So we have a closer connection to the African ancestry. Like Puerto Ricans and other latin races we are mixed. Where Camila is from ( I am from there also) bahia. This place was colonized more by the portugeuse and africans. Her mother actually has naturally curly hair and her father has latin roots in him. Also she practices the belief of orixas that come from the religion of yoruba. We call it candomble. That is why she wear white a lot for purity. The bangles she wears also represent part of that. Her purses also mean oxum which is an orixas ( god) that we practice in bahia. Hope this gives u a little background of her. Also candomble is catholicism mixed with a little vodoo ( yoruba culture from nigeria)
Ciao

June 29th is a nice day to be born on :-)

Ellen on

she looks beautiful, as always. I love her style. And ladyblue_design, …thanks for sharing some of that information about your culture/heritage. Very interesting. Always cool to learn something new about a culture/history.

Donna on

The Brazilians are different from other South American countries, in that they don’t have a Spanish background, nor do they speak Spanish. The people there are from a variety of countries, Europe, Africa and a large amount from Asia. We are South America peoples.

Megan on

As stated above, the Afro Brazilians are the largest group in the country. Their history, culture and racial group are decidedly African and European. They are South Americans who speak Portuguese, not the language of most other South American people.

Ron on

In Brasil the pardo people celebrate their African culture more than any other. The people are closer involved in their ancestral roots than they are in the U.S.

Angela on

I am thrilled to see so many biracial babies born in our country today, it is a beautiful thing. This will be a beautiful American baby of many different backgrounds, but most importantly he/she will be loved and I hope, educated about both parents roots. Congrats Matt & Camille.

ladyblue_design on

You guys are all right. We have a greater connection to africa bc slavery lasted longer in brasil. If u notice camila wears a charm necklace with many candomble symbols. I also have one that I requested from her and she made me celebrating yemaya ( the orixas of water). Every 2nd of february we go on the boat and celebrate her on the water. Her color is blue. White is a very important color in our tradition. It represents purity. The bracelets she wears are made from iron which represents oxum ( muxo). I would recoomend anyone to listen to ivete sangalo, jorge serge, gal costa. Brasil is a very special and spiritual place. Thanks for letting me share! And pls go visit anytime u can. And for any L.A. People pls visit mosci store.

ladyblue_design on

Sorry. Mosci is a store with great clothes owned by Flavia Mosci a fellow brasilian.

Jinni on

Another reason why there is a stronger connection to Africa in places like Brasil and the Carribean is because of the different European peoples that colonized the region. The Latins (Spanish, French, and Portugese) allowed their slaves to keep some of their African culture. Also, Catholicism(sp?), with all of its saints, made it easier for the Africans to blend it with their original polytheistic religion. On the other hand, the Anglos (English) were very stern about removing as much culture from their slaves as possible and thier form of Christianity was incompatible with the Africans religion.

kim on

thanks lady blue_design for the info where are the tourist areas in brasil do they speak english there and i really like her braclets where could i get info about it

ladyblue_design on

They didn’t necessarily “let” them keep their beliefs but the slaves hidden them so to speak. For example I was raisedd in catholicism and we would pray to the virgin mary but we were really praying to yemaya. There is also a martial arts called capoera (sp). The slaves came up with that bc the slave owners didn’t want fighting so they would “dance”. Santeria, lacumba, are also part of that culture. It depends on where in the islands or brasil u r located.
We believe in being “possessed” by the spirits.
Her bracelets are from alexani.com and also her purses are now in the fashion district in l.a. At the new mart. She had a special party for them and I was able to attend.

Jinni on

Thank you for the correction ladyblue_design.

Ana on

Well, as a conclusion: Brazil (Brasil in Portuguese), a non-Hispanic South American country (:D), is, as the United States, a melting pot. There are people of every ethnic background possible, from the very white to the very black, from the Asian to the Indians, and everybody is above all Brazilian.

sinclair on

“Also candomble is catholicism mixed with a little vodoo ( yoruba culture from nigeria) “

ladyblue_design, voodoo or Vodun (*NOT to be confused with the crap Hollywood portrays, with voodoo dolls and the like), is not traditionally from the Yoruba of Nigeria, alone. Its origins are in many parts of West Africa, like Ghana, Togo, and Benin.
