The 32-year-old told the magazine,

“It’s been a little surreal, but I feel really good, healthy and strong.” Naturi also mentions the pregnancy came as a surprise but adds that “it’s such a blessing… 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.”

Ever since her fellow cast and crew of the show gained knowledge of her pregnancy, they’ve become protective of her on set.

“They’ve been really good at keeping it on the low, but they’re also super excited,” she says. “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 Actress has been eating healthier too. When speaking of her diet she said,

“I love kale, I love strawberries and pineapples, but I’m not proud of this … I’ve been eating Cup Noodles. I really want salty, spicy things, and Cup Noodles has been really awesome. I haven’t had one since college!”

Naturi plans to spend her Summer nesting and experiencing the joys of motherhood with her boyfriend, Ben.

      Yeah…… they treated her badly back then cuz she was the only dark skinned one, but she’s the most successful by far now. Adrienne went and married a serial adulterer and the other one crashed and burned never to be heard of again.

    As much as I don’t want to sound judgmental it’s such a shame that over 70% of black kids in America are born to single mothers. It’s really an epidemic that’s keeping black people down. There are already enough things affecting black people all over the world and if possible single parenthood shouldn’t be added to the mix…

    A child is a beautiful gift from God, in wedlock or out of it. Thank God human beings are not God you would have chosen who the sun should shine on and who should breath air.

    Even the bible you referred to states that correction should be done in love. So much anger in your comment. Reading this, i blinked when i got to the 1st ”bastard”, cos u made a true point with the 1st sentence. Then blew it with the 2nd. Then i got to ”This woman has sin”, Exactly what those Pharisees that wanted to stone the harlot said. Look Temi, there is no big sin or small sin, so if you are 100% void of what, in our thinking, we term the minutest of sins, live in peace with these venomous comments. If not, bow your head in recognition that u are not holier….just like those Pharisees did.

    Bastard is now considered hard language so why label an innocent child that? Did the child force its conception? Did you skip the part were your bible says condemn the sin and not the sinner? How inhumane can you be? Her ‘bastard’ is nothing to be proud of?! Seriously? This bullshit you penciled down is far from what the bible preaches…HATE AND ENVANGELISM can never be 5 & 6…you really said ‘this woman is with sin’ so laughable, the day a man thinks he is without sin is the day he equates himself with God…’this is why many bad things are happening in the world’ lol…you think it is man’s ‘sinlessness’ that guarantees good things? You clearly don’t understand grace and christianity

    Na wa for u people…..the child is a bastard because the child is due t be born out of Wedlock….wooooow. Religion has blinded your eyes and minds.

    Jesus Christ, the main and key person in Christianity and the Bible? was born out of wedlock!!!!!
