TV series, Power’s Star actress, Naturi Naughton and her longtime boyriend, Ben are both expecting her first child this July. She announced the good news on her official Instagram account with photos from her exclusive interview with People magazine.
The actress turned singer 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.”

“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.”
