Megan Fox and Brian Green Austin Welcome New Son February 2014
We LOVE a Celebrity baby announcement here at Bump and Me so were wishing the Hollywood couple Megan Fox and her Husband Brian Austin Green a huge Congratulations on the birth of their second son yesterday. The unnamed mini Green/Fox will be brother to Noah and third son for Brian.
With Transformers star Megan Fox and 90210 Brian Green Austin being a very private celebrity couple it has been hard for me to pick out Megan’s top Maternity Moments, but I’ve done it and I’ve also found for you where to find her look online : )
Let me know what you think…

I know I usually only feature Maternity wear and accessories, but I thought Id test the water on Childrenswear, and what a fab way to start with this scrumptious brand Lilly & Sid!
Stocked in some of the UK’s most exclusive stores and Boutiques including Harvey Nichols & Selfridges, Lilly & Sid really is just one of those delightful brands that makes you feel like your purchasing something ultra special. From Toys to clothing Lilly & Sid really does cover all things baby.
I’ve chosen two pieces from their fantastic collection – the Racoon Jo Top and the Reversible Hansel dungarees set!With both items, the quality and attention to detail is obvious, the thing I love most about the dungarees is the fact you have two outfits in one. With the option that the outfit can be reversed instantly creating two looks in one, this really is the Perfect choice if your out and about and don’t have a change of clothes. Just whip it inside out and no one would be none the wiser to the smeared banana on the other side 😉
So if you’re looking for a gorgeous Christmas gift or just looking to spoil your little one Lilly & Sid is just a click away.
