Congrats to Tika Sumpter! The gorgeous actress is now a mommy.

It wasn’t until seven months in that Sumpter even announced her pregnancy, and now we’re finally getting a little glimpse at her newborn daughter, Ella-Loren, who was born last month.

Love at first sight. Ella-Loren. #love #life #happiness

In an interview with Fit Pregnancy, Tika talked about why she decided to keep her pregnancy private for so long.

“I didn’t want to hear, ‘Who’s the dad? Are you with the dad?’ Social media can be harsh, and I’m a mama bear, protective of my family. So that’s why I waited to tell people, including some friends. My friends weren’t mad at me. They said, ‘You did it the way you wanted to do it. You’re an inspiration.’”

And speaking of the baby’s father, we hear it’s her The Haves And Have Nots co-star and boyfriend of two years, Nicholas James, who Tika says she isn’t in a rush to marry.

“One of the first questions my mother asked when she found out I was pregnant was ‘Are you going to get married?’ I’d love to, but maybe in a year or so. I’ve been with my boyfriend for more than a year and a half. Our relationship is not dependent on a ring. I love him to death, and he loves me to death, and that’s all that matters to me.”

Congrats to Tika and Nicholas and their baby girl! According to Sumpter, she’s going to be raising a baby boss!

“There’s so much I want to teach my daughter, including humility, grace, forgiveness, and understanding. I want her to know her worth and that it’s okay to walk into a room and say, ‘Yes, I’m smart and amazing and I have ideas.’ I want to teach her how to be a boss.”
