Kelly Rowland showed off her baby bump over the weekend. See beach pics inside and get the latest on Quvenzhane Wallis and Zendaya Coleman.
Kelly Rowland, who's pregnant with her first child, proudly displayed her super cute baby bump in a few photos taken at the beach over the weekend.
The pics were shared on Kelly's Instagram where she's been documenting her journey to motherhood which also includes yoga and physical training. Such a fab mommy-to-be.
In retail stores.....
We told you that Annie star Quvenzhane Wallis was the new face of Armani Junior and now we've got a look at her photoshoot. She stars in the 2014 fall/winter ad campaign, shot by Stefano Azario.
Quvenzhane, who was nominated for an Oscar for Beasts Of The Southern Wild, told PEOPLE that her new modeling gig differs from acting.
Watch the adorable BTS below. She's getting so tall!
For those of you who've questioned Zendaya Coleman's casting as Aaliyah...make no mistake...Zendaya is a huge star. The 17-year-old triple-threat singer/dancer/actress recently starred in the Disney feature "Zapped" this weekend and the film has already become the HIGHEST rated cable tv movie of 2014 among tweens with 5.7 million viewers. Not too shabby. Her portrayal of Aaliyah has the potential to introduce the "One In A Million" singer to a new generation.
Congrats to her.

Chris Brown will not bring his "reality" to a screen near you while Jeremy Meeks is having a career uptick thanks to his arrest. More on Chris and #prisonbae inside...
Earlier this week, we learned that BET execs were willing to pay big bucks to bring Chris Brown's post-jailhouse life to the small screen.
We thought this was a TERRIBLE idea (for a man in recovery) and LUCKILY Chris agreed. TMZ caught up with him in LA recently and when asked if he'd do reality tv, he said "No, Not For Me."
Turining down reality tv is one of the best decisions Chris has made in months. #praisedance
In other news.....
#PrisonBae #JeremyMeeks #FelonBae #HandsomeFelon - whatever you want to call the man with the dreamy eyes, is making headlines again today. It' quites difficult to escape his captivating mugshot. And although he's still being held in a San Joaquin County Jail on seven felony counts related to firearm possession, street gang membership and parole violations (with bail set at $1m), Jeremy Meeks' career is on fire. At least that's what his agent says. Yes. He has an agent. A Hollywood agent.
Gina Rodriguez, the Hollywood agent who's guided the careers of Nadya ‘Octomom’ Suleman and V. Stiviano (hmph...) has taken on Jeremy as a client and she claims she's in talks with four production companies and three different modeling agencies.
Oh....and Jeremy has as stylist.His agent says his team will be copping him a Tom Ford suit for his upcoming court date. Why? Gina knows that the world is watching and she doesn't want some tacky orange jumpsuit to prevent #PrisonBae from getting work.
She told Fox411, "‘We want him to look as good as possible in the court. We are worried that current pictures of him in prison garb will mean he will not get a fair trial.’
Well, if Kim Kardashian can land a VOUGE cover, why can't Jeremy be on the cover of GQ?
