Woman Becomes Pregnant While Already With Child

Posted in Fitness & Health, News, WTF?! with tags , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2009 by TheDiversePurse

GrovenburgultrasoundArkansas couple Todd and Julie Grovenburg were shocked when they visited the doctor for a routine ultrasound only to find out she was pregnant again. But these aren’t twins. In this rare case, doctors believe Julie conceived a second child, a son whom they’ll call Hudson, two and a half weeks after she was already pregnant with their daughter whom they’ll name Jilian.

Dr. Karen Boyle, who spoke with ABC News, stated the babies will possibly have seperate due dates.

“The interesting thing in this case is if these children were actually born on their due dates, the older child would be born at the end of 2009, and the younger child would be born in the beginning of 2010.” Link via Yahoo

lolaiolaninakoawolfThe Young, Black, and Fabulous blog spotted Lilakoi Moon aka Lisa Bonet stepping out with her two youngest children, from partner Jason Momoa, in tow. Lilakoi carried her almost-two-year old Lola Iolani while a nanny(?) held Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha.

They’re both so cute! And I am so jealous of Lilakoi still looking youthful with her post-baby glow. Link!

12 Year Old Fatally Shoots 2 Year Old Cousin

Posted in News, R.I.P., WTF?! with tags , , , , , , , on January 9, 2009 by TheDiversePurse

With the families pocessions gathered in piles throughout their home in East Palo Alto California, in preparation for being sent back to Tonga, a 12-year old boy and his 2-year old cousin were in a bedroom playing around 11pm Thursday night. The 12-year old, who is now in child protective custody, reportedly wanted to “show off” and retrieved a small caliber rifle, which the family didn’t know was secretly left by a friend. Unbeknownst to the child the gun was loaded.

“The older boy didn’t realize the gun was loaded and shot it. The bullet struck the toddler in the chest. Crews raced the toddler to the hospital, where he pronounced dead.

According to (Detective) Sanchez, the gun belongs to a family friend, whom he would not identify. But he said police are looking for this East Palo Alto man for questioning.”

So sad.

Lilakoi Moon aka Lisa Bonet and her beau Jason Momoa welcomed their second child. A son by the name of Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa. Like the couples 20 month year old daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, their new son also has a name with Hawaiian roots and meaning.

On her fan forum, she states how she chose his name and the significance behind it:

“He was born on the stormest, rainy night.

so Nakoa(warrior)…Mana(strength/spirit) Kaua(rain) po(dark)…

The name was always going to be Nakoa-Wolf, but Jason did the research on first middle name, 2nd middle name as you know is Jason’s.”

I love it! I was reading comments on other sites and some of them are pretty negative. Hawaiian names are usually long and have some spiritual/family significance. Mine is pretty long as well and I’m proud of it and my Hawaiian roots, so let the haters hate, Momoa family! Congratulations!


Lisa Bonet About To Pop

lisabonetpregWith the loose fitting layers upon layers she wears, I totally couldn’t tell Lisa Bonet was seven months pregnant. She and Jason Momoa are expecting their second child together; having given birth to their first child, Lola Iolani, just 14 months ago. Damn, they didn’t even let the cooch heal first. They’re probably preparing by stocking up on towels, chimes, incense, and hiring a Doula. Congrats! Link! (via People)

After the birth of his son, Austin, new dad Rob Sandler couldn’t stand to be around his newborn yet he couldn’t explain why. Something didn’t feel right,” he remembered. “I felt like a lot of loss of control of my life…a feeling of trappedness came over me and it would not lighten up. It kept getting worse and worse as the days went on.” Sandler was later diagnosed with a male version of postpartum depression. Unlike “daddy blues”, his symptoms were more severe and lasted longer. Scientists have speculated that it may derive from the mysterious “sympathy pains” some men experience when their partner is pregnant.  Link! (via CNN)
