La’Myia Good-Bellinger and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Eric Bellinger attended the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards at the STAPLES Center on February 8, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.
The couple announced last month that they are expecting their first child together. Bellinger shared the happy news with his fans by uploading a photo of a pregnant and topless La’Myia on his Instagram. But the picture got a lot of backlash. La’Myiah recently sat down with Essence magazine to address the issue.
“Why can’t I be sexy in my maternity photos? I feel sexy and I feel good about my body; what’s the shame in sharing? I feel good about myself. People post stuff everyday when they feel good about themselves. I don’t understand what the shame or the embarrassment is,” La’Myia said.
She continued, “I work very hard to keep myself fit. And my husband loves it. It was his idea. I think there are these expectations, especially when someone is a Christian. There is an expectation about how we’re supposed to look and when we don’t meet those standards, then that’s when the comments and the backlash come in. Ultimately it’s about being true to who you are and how God uniquely made you.”
The Bellingers are expecting their bundle of joy in March.
