Tika Sumpter is gracing the latest issue of Fit Pregnancy and Baby and she looks amazing. Inside the issue the actress, who will welcome a baby girl in October, gave the scoop on how she found out she was expecting.
I found out around Valentine's Day, when my boyfriend took me on a surprise trip to San Diego. I never want McDonald's, but I was like, 'I need a Big Mac, fries and a Coke now.'
They were still only serving breakfast, so I insisted we wait there until they started serving lunch.
Afterward, I immediately fell asleep. When I woke up, my boyfriend was like, 'Ha-ha! Are you pregnant?' I said, 'Maybe. Go get a test!' He brought back a generic-brand test, and right away it said positive. I could not comprehend it. So I said, 'Go get
a name-brand test!' He did, and that one said yes too.
I still have the stick. I had to show it to my mom because she didn't even believe me when I told her.
Tika also revealed she kept her pregnancy on the low to avoid questions about her baby's father.
She's my first child, and I wanted to experience every moment of this pregnancy for myself and enjoy it without everybody else being in it with me.
I didn't want to hear, 'Who's the dad? Are you with the dad?' Social media can be harsh, and I'm a mama bear, protective of my family.
So that's why I waited to tell people, including some friends.
My friends weren't mad at me. They said, 'You did it the way you wanted to do it. You're an inspiration.'
She took a stand..good for her. Reference
