Congratulations are in order for Power star Naturi Naughton. The singer/actress announced today that she and her boyfriend Ben are expecting their first child together.
The former 3LW singer managed to keep her pregnancy on the low low while finishing up the most recent season of the Starz show. “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 told PEOPLE Magazine exclusively.
Naturi, who plays Tasha, the wife of Jamie “Ghost” St. Patrick on the show, says the cast and crew have gone above and beyond helping her on set since announcing the baby news. “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.” The wardrobe crew also keeps her laced in the best baby-bump concealing fits so us nosey fans wouldn’t notice a thing. “I had maternity jeans they ordered for me, and I do a lot of tops that are peplum-style. I was amazed at how un-pregnant I could look.”
No word yet on the baby’s sex, but one thing is for sure – Naturi is enjoying pregnancy, and her Cup Of Noodle cravings, with every passing day.
Congrats Naturi and Ben!
