“This little guy has already brought me so much happiness and a feeling of such a greater purpose.

“I cannot wait to meet you!!”

“On a personal note, I have had the blessing of growing up in the public eye having started my acting career at age 6. While this has been incredible for me, I am very much looking forward to giving this little guy some room to grow up outside of the public eye, until he tells me otherwise. 

“‘Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly.

“Thank you God for this blessing.

“I’m just so happy & can’t wait to dedicate everyday to being the best mommy I can be.”
