“I feel really happy; pregnancy has been good to me. I’m in love, I’m looking forward to just sharing this next level of life. My whole life has been about working and being in the girl group and being on stage and being an actress, but now I get to really enjoy a bigger purpose, which is motherhood, so I’m really excited.”
Naturi Naughton, 33, actress on the hit Starz television show Power is expecting her first child with longtime partner, Ben. The couple connected with Essence to produce these beautiful maternity photos.
This will be Naturi’s first child and she is expecting a girl this summer.
When asked about the orange color scheme of the shoot, Naturi had this to say:
We both just really appreciate Black culture. Ben wore a shirt from Ghana and my theme was “It takes a village to raise a child” for my baby shower. We just always try to incorporate African proverbs or Kente cloth or using different images to celebrate this beautiful Black girl that’s coming into the world.
Naturi has found success with her role as Tasha on Power. Continued success and hoping for a happy and healthy remainder of her pregnancy. For more celebrity baby bump action check out these posts HERE, HERE, and HERE.
