Exclusive: Kyla Pratt On Second Daughter “I Was Going To Announce It At Year 1”

Kyla Pratt shocked us all when she confirmed that she gave birth to her second child in August 2013. Pratt’s rep revealed to HipHollywood last month that the 27-year-old is a mother of a healthy baby girl, but that she isn’t quite ready to release the baby’s name or share any additional information about her new bundle of joy.

It was a secret that was held for nearly 6-months, but while on the red carpet for BET’s Annual Celebration of Gospel, the actress shared with HH that she had every intention on eventually announcing baby number 2.

“With my oldest daughter, I didn’t want to announce it until she was 1-years-old, so I was going to do it the same way around this time; give my second baby the same thing. But people find out stuff,” she told us.

“I was telling my publicist all the stuff I was doing when I was pregnant and he was like ‘and no one said anything?’ I was in New York, we were traveling, we went gambling,” Pratt shared. “Don’t nobody care about me until later on and they be like ‘why you didn’t tell us.’ Nobody said nothing before,” she joked.

We made sure to ask the Let’s Stay Together star whether or not she was hiding anymore children, and she said no, but maybe … “next year.”

The 27-year-old has gotten pretty good at keeping secrets. The actress and her longtime boyfriend, Compton gave birth to their first child together back in November 2010 and kept that pregnancy a secret as well. During another exclusive interview with Pratt last month, the actress revealed why she chose to keep her first gestation a secret.

“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.”

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
