Exclusive: Why Kyla Pratt Keeps Her Pregnancies A Secret!
Kyla Pratt has gotten pretty, pretty good at keeping secrets because it was just confirmed that the actress had another baby.
Pratt’s rep confirmed to HipHollywood that the star did in fact give birth to a healthy baby girl in August 2013. We are also told that Kyla isn’t quite ready to release the baby’s name or share any additional information about her new bundle of joy.
During a recent interview with the star, HipHollywood asked why she chose to keep her first pregnancy a secret. The Let’s Stay Together actress revealed that it’s simply a private matter that she feels doesn’t need to be promoted.
“Me personally I just feel like it’s something personal that I wanted to experience and enjoy myself,” she told us. “Especially with the social media nowadays, people are easily able to reach you and easily able to say anything that they want to say without any consequences. When you’re pregnant, you’re hormonal, you have a lot of things going on and my fear was somebody saying something and it really effecting me when it doesn’t really matter.”
She continued, “When I announced that I had a daughter, we got a lot of backlash but I didn’t care, I had my baby. But when you’re pregnant you don’t know what somebody’s going to say, or what’s going to effect you or how you’re going to feel. I loved my pregnancy, every moment.”
“I wasn’t hiding … I went to Disneyland 8-months pregnant, I had a huge baby shower. I just have people around me who respected me and understand where I was coming from,” Pratt explained.
The 27-year-old beauty and her longtime boyfriend, Compton gave birth to their first child together back in November 2010. And while it’s not confirmed who the father is of her 6-month old, we can only assume it’s Danny Kirkpatrick aka Compton.
As for more children, the actress tells us it will happen when the time is right. “I got my hands full right now, but yes. I’m a part of a big family and my little joke is I like for us to be our own little gang. You mess with one of us, you mess with all of us.”
