Yandy Smith is a successful businesswoman and expecting mother. The ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ star recently talked with VIBE Vixen about her journey into motherhood thus far, and the best advice her mom has given her.
Pregnancy and motherhood.
“I’m having a little boy! [My pregnancy has] been great! People talk about the emotional this and that. I’ve been super happy! I haven’t had an emotional breakdown. The emotional breakdown is coming because it’s getting closer. I haven’t been able to sleep. I won’t be able to sleep unless this nursery is in order. It’s so much to think about and so much to do, but I love it. I love the special treatment I’m getting. I get back rubs and foot massages. I get breakfast cooked sometimes if he doesn’t have to work, so it’s been okay. It’s been good, really good.”
Who is the father of her child?
“In due time, it will reveal itself. Stay tuned to Twitter, Instagram, Love & Hip-Hop. I think it was important to establish myself as a business woman first and not a woman who’s attached to a man. I love him tremendously and he’s been a support during the taping of the show and when I managed him initially. He’s been great. He’s been a great supporter. You know, the media and everyone else, they make up so many things and they can be so cruel, so I kind of wanted to shield him from that. Putting him out there, the baby out there, it’s just a lot that you have to think about. People are harsh and people are cruel.”
The advice her mom gives.
“She just says this is the time when you cannot control anything that happens. You have to put everything that you know; leave it out the door, but you put your faith and trust in God and that is it. I couldn’t determine what my baby’s sex was going to be. I can’t determine if my baby will come out full term or premature. I can’t determine if everything will come out perfect. I’m a control freak and a worry wart, so she said, ‘You have to stop worrying. You have to stop trying to control this. Just let God do his thing.’ That has been some really good advice.”
