Hot Mama! Kim Kardashian West Stuns in Bronze Bikini in St. Barts

08/29/2015 at 11:00 AM ET

This bronzed beauty deserves the gold.

Kim Kardashian West, 34, opted for a bronze string bikini for yet another day of family fun in St. Barths on Aug. 18, where she was spotted showing off her baby belly while walking along the sandy shore.

Sporting a full face of makeup, the mom-to-be — who is expecting her second child, a son, with husband Kanye West in December — stunned in her itty bitty two-piece as she took advantage of the beautiful beach backdrop to snap a few selfies.

And all that Caribbean island sun — and a baby on the way! — does Kardashian West good. On Tuesday, she posted a selfie showing off her perfect nude pout. “Pregnancy lips,” she captioned the photo. And on Friday, her cleavage was on full display (accompanied by baby milk bottle emojis).

Charles and Cassie Kelley Reveal They’re Expecting a Son After Fertility Struggle: ‘We Were Up Against Incredible Odds’

08/28/2015 at 11:25 AM ET

For Cassie McConnell Kelley and husband Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum, finding out they were expecting their first child was a surprise.

“I get choked up just thinking about it,” she told Good Morning America on Friday during the show’s fertility week series. “We’re thankful — blessed isn’t a strong enough word. We were up against some incredible odds, and it still happened.”

McConnell Kelley said she and Kelley, who were married in 2009, hadn’t even considered that they would have fertility issues when they first started trying for a baby.

“When you’re young, healthy, and you’re ready to start a family, you just don’t envision there will be any problems doing that,” she said. “My body doesn’t ovulate regularly [called anovulation], which is problem number one. I also had a blockage in my fallopian tube, which also happened to be connected to my dominant ovary.”

Kim Kardashian West: My Fertility Struggles Took ‘the Fun out of’ Trying to Conceive

08/27/2015 at 11:00 AM ET

Weeks before her daughter turned 2, Kim Kardashian West confirmed North would soon be a big sister.

But the mom-to-be says in the September issue of C Magazine that the announcement came more than a year after she and husband Kanye West first began trying for a second child.

“I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again,” she explains.

“It was a long road. I would go to the doctor in Beverly Hills every day at five in the morning to get tested to see if I was ovulating.”

In the revealing cover story celebrating the magazine’s 10th anniversary, Kardashian West admits she was forced to keep track of when she was ovulating and the strict schedule took “the fun out of” getting pregnant.

“I’m like, ‘I’m ovulating, get home now!’ He’d be like, ‘Wait, I’m in the studio,’ ” she recalls.

Jessie James Decker Opens Up About Pregnancy: ‘I Loved Breastfeeding the First Time Around’

08/24/2015 at 12:05 PM ET

Jessie James Decker is a seasoned pro when it comes to motherhood, so she’s ready for anything and everything with her second child.

The 27-year-old singer and designer — already mom to daughter Vivianne Rose, 16 months — says in the September issue of American Baby magazine that her second pregnancy has been “smoother” than her first.

“With my daughter, Vivianne, I had horrible morning sickness. I threw up every day, sometimes twice, for five months, which then made me insanely hungry,” James Decker says.

“I’d stuff my face to try not to feel nauseated, and I gained 55 lbs. On my 5’1″ frame, that was brutal! This time has been much smoother. I sometimes even forget I’m pregnant except for all the moving around he’s doing in there!”
