Power star Naturi Naughton is going to be a mom.
The actress confirmed exclusively to People magazine that she and her longtime boyfriend Ben are expecting their first child together this July.
Naughton revealed to the publication that the life-changing journey has been “a little surreal, but I feel really good, healthy and strong.”
The 32-year-old and her soon-to-be baby daddy were not planning on becoming parents this very moment, but per the actress, she feels incredibly blessed. “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,” she said.
So, how is her Power cast and crew taking the big news? “They’ve been really good at keeping it on the low, but they’re also super excited,” she explained. “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 has yet to open up about her pregnancy on social media, but the star is definitely showing off her pregnancy glow while soaking up the sun in Hawaii.
