Are We There Yet? actress Essence Atkins gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Christmas day. Although the celebrity has only been a mom for two weeks, Essence enjoys every moment of motherhood.
The actress recently told Essence that being a mom is one of the most astonishing experiences that she has ever had. Atkins states, “I’ll have these moments where I look at [my son] and I just can’t believe he’s mine. We’ve been though a lot. You go through all this suffering, but at the end of it, look what God gives you.”
Essence and husband Jamie Mendez welcomed their first child into the world after two years of marriage. The couple named the baby Varro, meaning “durable and strong.”
