Cree Summer believes in keeping it au natural. She is all for childbirth without meds and curly hair without chemicals. Although she experienced childbirth the natural way, Cree is not in the habit of pushing expecting mothers to go through the same process.


“I wouldn’t want to give advice to new mothers, but I would love to share the importance of knowing your rights in childbirth and to research your childbirth options,” the actress “Women spend more time researching a new car than their births and I would also suggest if they are interested [in natural childbirth], to check out ‘The Business of Being Born’, a documentary produced by Ricki Lake. I had my daughter, Brave LittleWing at home and it was a safe, deep and magical experience.”

Cree proudly displays her curly hair at every celebrity event but admits that her daughter’s hair is not so bouncy. “It’s actually very straight and very blond! My father has blue eyes, blond hair and my mother is very dark skinned. My husband is not mixed, and he’s maybe a shade or two darker than I am. And here comes my very fair skinned, straight haired, gray eyed daughter! If my daughter didn’t look like him, I’d have a lot of explaining to do! It’s still early, and it looks like it’s starting to get a curl to it, but for the most part, it’s very light and very straight,” says the star.

Summer is known for her role as Winifred “Freddie” Brooks on the NBC sitcom A Different World. She has been in the entertainment industry since 1983.
