Britney Spears’ bundle of joy made his appearance last Wednesday, she confirmed on her Web site. So what’s ahead for the first-time mommy?
Motherhood: Expect to see baby snaps of the youngest Federline progeny sooner rather than later, predicts Us Weekly’s Janice Min. The average hospital stay after a C-section delivery is two to four days.
We already know that the singer is hardly press-shy – she featured her wedding and baby shower photos in People magazine.
Says Min: “The risk here is that another photographer gets a picture of her pushing her stroller down the street in L.A. and that undercuts the value of the official photo.”
Career: Spears’ label, Jive Records, has no update on when her next offering could be in stores. But the savvy Spears has another iron in the fire: Her second Elizabeth Arden fragrance, Fantasy, hit stores Thursday.
“It’s a lot easier, and very lucrative, to lend your name to a fragrance than to record an album and go on tour,” Min says.
Still, don’t expect to see Spears take a break from the spotlight. Says Min: “Being a celebrity is addictive. Britney would like to go back to being Britney one day.”
Fashion: While pregnant, Spears wore an assortment of cropped tops, fitted slogan T-shirts, summer dresses (one paired with Uggs), bikinis and cowboy boots.
Lucky fashion director Hope Greenberg doubts Spears will “start dressing like a soccer mom. She likes showing lots of skin and trying to be sexy, and she’s going to keep doing (that).”
Greenberg would dress Spears in “a pretty, printed V-neck empire waist dress, with a flat thong sandal. There’s no excuse for not being able to look pulled-together and chic pregnant or post-pregnancy.”
Baby style: Spears will dress her newborn in simple, soft onesies “for that classic, sweet look,” predicts Wendy Bellisimo, a celebrity nursery and clothing designer.
But once her son starts walking, Bellisimo says, “she’ll really start into fashion for him and may start dressing him like a little Kevin.”
