Power actress Naturi Naughton is pregnant with her first child. The 32 year old star is due in July.
“I feel like being pregnant and entering this new stage has made me stronger and more excited about life in general. Everything seems so much more purposeful.”
Naturi revealed she found out she was pregnant while shooting her hit STARZ show. The cast has been very excited for her, especially her on-screen husband, Omari Hardwick.
“They’ve been really good at keeping it on the low, but they’re also super excited,” she says. “Omari, who plays my husband, we have kids on the show and he’s like, ‘Now you get to be experiencing motherhood in real life!’ Everyone’s been really supportive.”
Now that she’s pregnant, Naughton said she’s fixed her diet.
“I love kale, I love strawberries and pineapples, but I’m not proud of this … I’ve been eating Cup Noodles. I really want salty, spicy things, and Cup Noodles has been really awesome. I haven’t had one since college!”
And learned how to hide her baby bump for the show.
“I had maternity jeans they ordered for me, and I do a lot of tops that are peplum-style. I was amazed at how un-pregnant I could look.”
Congratulations Naturi, we’re sure you’ll kick ass as a mother.
