Bump Up the Jam! These Celebs Showed Off Their Baby Bumps in Music Videos


Moms really can do it all.

On Thursday, a pregnant Nicki Minaj posted a video on Instagram where she is seen effortlessly rapping along to her latest single, "Move Ya Hips," her just-released collaboration with A$AP Ferg and MadeinTYO. Minaj announced on July 20 that she and husband Kenneth Petty are expecting their first child together, alongside a set of glam snapshots baring her baby bump.

Because celebrity moms are no strangers to putting in work while — no big deal — nurturing and growing another human life, here are nine other singers and performers who gave multi-tasking a new meaning and showed off their baby bumps while showing off their skills.

Katy Perry

The singer revealed that she is expecting her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom when she debuted her growing baby bump in the music video for her song "Never Worn White."

Carrie Underwood

In 2018 the country music singer revealed her baby bump in the music video for "Love Wins," showing it off in a flowing orange dress while singing in an open field. The star had just announced that she was expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher.

P!nk

The singer, who was expecting her daughter Willow at the time, cradled her baby bump in the music video for "Perfect," which made the already emotional song even more heartfelt.

Solange

We love a supportive big sister! Beyoncé made sure to include her sister Solange, then pregnant with son Julez, in the music video for "Soldier," when the group sang the lyric "known to carry big things if ya know what I mean."

Beyoncé

After revealing that she was pregnant while performing at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, Beyoncé included her bump in the music video for "Countdown," pointing to her stomach while singing "I'm tryna make us three from that two." The singer gave birth to her first child with husband Jay-Z, baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, on Jan. 7, 2012.

Cardi B

The rapper revealed that she was expecting her first child with her husband, Migos rapper Offset, while performing live on Saturday Night Live in 2018. The couple welcomed their daughter, Kulture Kiari in July of that year.

Jessie James Decker

The country music star released the video for her song “Flip My Hair” in January 2018, in which she performed an impressive dance routine – while six months pregnant with her third child!

Natalie Portman

In 2017, a very pregnant Natalie Portman starred in the music video for James Blake's "My Willing Heart." And when we say "very pregnant," we mean literally days away from giving birth to her daughter Amalia.

Teyana Taylor

Teyana Taylor revealed the happy news that she is expecting her second child with a music video for her song "Wake Up Love." In the closing scene of the video, Taylor shares a kiss in bed with her 4-year-old daughter Iman Tayla (a.k.a. Junie) and NBA pro husband, Iman Shumpert, before pulling down her blanket and lifting up her shirt to reveal her baby bump for the first time.

One thing's for sure: These famous kiddos will have some pretty cool stories to tell!

Pink Calls Coronavirus Battle with Son Jameson 'Most Physically and Emotionally Challenging Experience'

Pink is opening up about her experience battling the coronavirus alongside her 3-year-old son, Jameson.

Ahead of the Mother’s Day holiday on Sunday, the singer, 40, wrote an essay for NBC News reflecting on the current coronavirus pandemic and what it means for mothers around the world.

“Mother’s Day is this weekend and I have been reflecting on the wonderful, yet challenging gift of time that life in COVID-19 quarantine has meant for me and my children,” she begins in the essay. “To be a mom, a teacher, a cook, a confidant, and a badass dream chaser all at once is no small feat. Mamas everywhere, you are doing amazing.”

The mom of two also details how parents are currently “defining a new normal” for their children, adding that “the virus knows no boundaries” and parts of the world may be just beginning to feel its effects.

Pink, who revealed in early April that she and her son battled the coronavirus, also reflects her own experience with the respiratory illness in her essay.

“Battling COVID-19 along with my 3-year-old son was the most physically and emotionally challenging experience I have gone through as a mother,” Pink writes. “Weeks after receiving our test results, my son was still ill and feverish. It was a terrifying time, not knowing what might come next.”

The star adds, “But our story is not unique; there are mothers all over America, and the world, that are facing this same uncertainty every single day. Not every family, especially those living on reservations, or in refugee camps, slums, or favelas, are able to practice social distancing. In many parts of the world it can take hours just to access water, and even then, soap may be an impossible luxury.”

Shortly after revealing her and Jameson’s diagnosis on Instagram, Pink said that although they were both feeling better, the young toddler “had the worst of it.”

“Jameson has been really, really sick,” she said during an Instagram Live chat with her friend and author Jen Pastiloff on April 4. “I’ve kept a journal of his symptoms for the past three weeks and mine as well. He still, three weeks later, has a 100 temperature. It’s been a rollercoaster for both of us, but Carey and Willow have been perfectly fine.”

In her essay, published on Saturday, the “Beautiful Trauma” singer also urges fans to “put ourselves in the shoes of moms around the globe and consider doing what we can to help keep their babies safe.”

“How can we partake in ensuring their access to the basic human rights that so many of us are afforded each and every day?” she asks.
