2 chix has created the perfect burnout tee that is specifically made to fit blooming bellies; the Peek-a-Boo tee. This tee, which comes in both v-neck and crew neck, is form-fitting, long enough to cover a belly full of baby, super-soft and thin enough to fit perfectly under another tee if you’re going for that layered look. These burnout tee’s are all the rage this season and look equally fab dressed up with a skirt, designer jeans, or with your most comfy loungin’ pants.
My very own growing belly bump hugs my 2 chix tee like a second skin. It’s so soft and comfortable – just what us preggo moms are looking for in the perfect summer tee. I love my dark grey, v-neck tee and am sure I’ll get tons of wear out of it even after my baby arrives in October.

A “different”-looking Jamie Lynn Spears (photoshopped much ?) introduces her 3-week-old daughter to the world in the new issue of OK! Weekly.
In the exclusive interview and photoshoot to the magazine, the new Mom tells OK! that being away from the shining lights of Hollywood is making it all easier to learn the ins and outs of first-time motherhood.
“Around here, everyone has the same focus,” Jamie Lynn tells OK!. “The focus is family, and that’s a good way to live.”
She also opens up to about taking parenting classes, her new life with Casey and Maddie and labor pains.
“They’d told me it would be an eight- to 12-hour labor, and I was ready to have the baby in three to four hours,” Jamie Lynn tells OK!. “I had a perfect pregnancy and a perfect delivery. I was very blessed.”
Jamie Lynn, who tells OK! that while her labor was induced, she gave birth naturally and without complications, says that Casey was the one person she wanted in the delivery room with her.
“Once I got in there, my doctor was just so calm and so good it was not bad at all,” she says. “I was just talking to Casey. And you know what’s so weird? I was asking him if he was okay. He was like, ‘Yeah.’ We were both so excited.”
She also reveals that for the moment, Maddie sleeps in a bassinet in the same room as Jamie Lynn and Casey.
“She is very good,” says Jamie Lynn. “She’ll feed every two or three hours. When she wakes up in the middle of the night, I’ll feed her and she goes right back to sleep. There’s no screaming and crying.”
The proud mama continues,
“We get up in the morning, and she gets her little bath. Then I get my bath. We have a routine, and I love routines. I’ve worked one out with her, and we’re happy going about our little life.”

On having suspicions about being pregnant again:
Charlotte: “Not at all! My hips were really, really sore and that made me check. I’d just started going on the cross trainer in Gav’s gym and for the rest of the day I was absolutely killing. I thought, hang on this reminds me of the latter stages of pregnancy. I’ll just check, but I’m definitely not. It was a nice sunny day and Gavin was sat with his leg in plaster and I went out and said: ‘You’ll never guess what – I’m only pregnant again!’”
On being shocked at the news:
Gavin: “A little bit. We didn’t plan for it to happen but I’m really happy it did. We like being young parents, so if we’re planning on having quite a few then we need to get started!”
On how many children they want:
C: “Maybe four to six now!”
G: “Or six to eight.”
C: “We’d like to have two close together, then a gap, then another two close together.”
On feeling sick during pregnancy:
C: “I felt sick all the time last time but this time I’ve been great.”
On pregnancy cravings:
C: “Actually just nice fresh salads, which is better than lasagne which is what I craved last time! Lasagne and spaghetti bolognese.”
On preference for which sex:
C: “Not at all.”
G: “I’m not bothered. We’re young and we’ve got plenty of time to keep going for a boy. Hopefully we will at some point, though.”
On Charlotte regaining her pre-pregnancy body:
C: “I was just beginning to get my body back and I was doing quite well – I wasn’t far off my pre-pregnancy weight, which was nine and a half stone. It’s a natural process, though, so I’m not too bothered. I’m not looking forward to getting a big fat face and arms again but it’s what women are made for and if you can’t indulge yourself during pregnancy, when can you?”
On taking Ruby to work:
C:“Yes. She’s doing a new thing every single day and I don’t want to miss anything. I really miss her if I haven’t seen her for a couple of hours. She’s getting to be more of a daddy’s girl now, though, as well, which I love. He’s had a leg in plaster because he tore the ligaments in his foot so he’s been home a lot and she’s used to having him here now. He’s absolutely brilliant with her. I knew he would be good but I didn’t realise he’d be this good.”
On Ruby reacting to the new baby:
C: “Well she’s really happy-go-lucky so hopefully she will be fine. The only thing is she gets constant attention because she is so lush. Everyone always comments on what a happy child she is – she’s always smiling and content.
G: “She only really cries when she’s about to go to sleep and if she’s a bit moany in the day we just take her outside and show her the animals because we have dogs, chickens, geese and sheep and she’s fascinated by them. She chases the dogs round in her walker.”
C: “She terrorises them! She knows just how to corner them, you see this glint in her eye. They’re definitely wary of her!”
O who Ruby takes after:
C: “She’s quite tough and that’s like both of us – if she falls over she doesn’t really cry, she looks a bit surprised and then just carries on.”
G: “She likes all her fruit and vegetables and she definitely gets that from me!”
C: “She used to love mashed avocado, now she’ll eat strawberries and bananas and broccoli heads! She’s got no teeth yet, though.”
On getting a nanny:
C: “Never! Although ask me again when we’ve got four!”
G: “I don’t think it would ever come to that. We’ve got a lot of help with all four grandparents and they all live nearby.”

After a marathon negotiating session to end their 10-year marriage, the ugly divorce trial between Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook finally ended at 6 a.m. this morning.
The main issue being resolved was custody of the couple’s two children, Jack, 13, and Sailor, 10. Christie was awarded sole custody and final decision-making power over the children. Cook is permitted visitation and will be consulted regarding decisions about the children. Christie also retained ownership of all real estate holdings and her boat “Sweet Freedom.” She agreed to pay Cook a flat amount of $2.1 million, which mainly covered his legal costs. The rest of the terms remain confidential.
The five-day trial included a string of witnesses and allegations against Peter’s pornography addiction, his infidelities and his overall unstable nature.

Former Blur bassist Alex James talked to OK! Magazine about family life and living on a farm in the Cotswolds, UK. Alex, 39, lives with his wife Claire and their three sons: Geronimo, four, and two-year-old twins Artemis (curlier hair) and Galileo. The couple are currently expecting their fourth child.
On knowing the sex:
Alex: “We’re having a girl! We pretended not to be really excited about the news that we were having a girl, but we secretly were!”
On the possibility of another pair of twins:
Claire: “We braced ourselves for another set of twins. But after the first scan we worked out quite quickly that it was just one. The twins have really been a lot of effort and work because they were premature. They’re double the trouble but they entertain each other as well.”
On considering a more simple name:
Alex: “I don’t know, I think you’ve got to have a look at them before you know what they’re called. We quite like Sophie, although I don’t think we’ll get that past the board of censors – especially Geronimo. There’s a shortlist. I quite like Boudica.”
On drinking his wife’s breast milk:
Alex: “When the twins were born it was very traumatic as we didn’t know whether they were going to make it as they were so premature. So after we finally got them home, Claire had a night out with friends and got totally wasted. We had this particularly fearsome maternity nurse who told us Claire’s milk was condemned. I thought, we can’t throw that away, so I tried it – I had some on my cornflakes as well!”
