Naturi Naughton Announces She Is Pregnant


Naturi Naughton is going to be a mommy. The Power star just announced that she and longtime boyfriend Ben are expecting a baby.

Naturi posted on Instagram saying, “FINALLY I can share the Good news! Blessings on Blessings! #mommy2be #weAreSoHappy”

She told People magazine, “It’s been a little surreal, but I feel really good, healthy and strong.”

She says the pregnancy was a surprise but “it’s such a blessing,” adding, “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.”

Doesn’t look like her character Tasha will be pregnant though as she says the show has been hiding her baby bump during filming. She says her castmates are really happy for her.

“They’ve been really good at keeping it on the low, but they’re also super excited. Omari [Hardwick], 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.”

Naturi and Ben are busy picking out colors for their baby’s nursery and enjoying the journey.

“It’ll just be a great summer to enjoy motherhood and this journey to motherhood. It’s a really amazing responsibility, but it’s such a blessing and that to me is worth more than anything I can imagine.”
