Sherri Saum is pregnant! The actress confirmed her expectancy through a statement earlier this month which read, “The actress and her husband Kamar de los Reyes are so thrilled to welcome the little ones into the world.” The Reyes are expecting twins, making the pregnancy a double blessing.
Sherri and Kamar wed on May 19, 2007. She landed the role of foster parent earlier this year, portraying Lena Adams on the series, The Fosters. Saum tells the Windy City Media Group that her role is both wholesome and edgy. “It is definitely going to be groundbreaking in the landscape of television as we know it right now,” explains the actress. “We see gay characters on TV but it is usually not in a realistic way. We are not perpetuating stereotypes or playing it for laughs. It is showing a depiction of a slice of life of a family that just happens to be headed by two moms. We are not trying to push messages in people’s faces per se but we are saying, ‘Hey, this a family and check it out.'”
The Reyes are expecting their first child to arrive in the Summer of 2014.
