Actress,writer, comedienne, playwritght, singer, activist, Rain Pryor, her fiance Yale, and her one-year-old- daughter Lotus are featured on the April 2009 cover of Celebrity Parents Magazine. In the article feature, the actress talks about her life as a mother, her father, the late comedian Richard Pryor, and so much more! Check out bits of the interview below.
On her daughter Lotus Marie:
She’s yummy. Brains and beauty, that’s my girl! Lotus was born on April Fool’s Day, which is so ironic! She definitely has her grandpa’s genes….She’s funny; she has this weird sense of humor. T.V. is her crack. She only watches pre-school shows. I want her to learn. I want her to say, “Look Mommy, an octagon!” I’m sure she has other words planned for me, though!
On her first year of Parenting:
It’s been good and also really hard. No one wants to talk about it. There’s a big denial. The truth is, you love it and some days you don’t. No one told me this, how having a child completely transforms your life.
I’m exhausted, sleep-wise. When I got the first six straight hours of sleep, I literally cried. It’s tremendous endurance. Then I look at her and think how lucky I am. I want her to marry a nice doctor!
On being comfortable in her own skin and loving her “peachy” baby:
I’m comfortable with who I am. I was never the Hollywood skinny [person]. I was the 219 lb. pregnant girl. I will never have the same pre-baby body, and I’m fine with it. I’m black and white, my fiancé is black, and my daughter is peachy with hazel eyes! I always said I wanted a Halle Berry/Angelina Jolie baby, and if she didn’t look like that, she was going back in! My girl has her daddy’s looks!
