Tika Sumpter is a new mom! The actress welcomed a baby girl named Ella Loren earlier this month.
This week, Tika took to her twitter account to talk about how much she admires caretakers. Captioning a meme on her Instagram account she wrote, “Dear Mom’s, dad’s and caretakers, I’m slow clapping for each and every one of you. It ain’t no joke.”
The 36-year-old Haves and Have Nots actress announced her pregnancy in August after having kept it a secret for months.
“She’s my first child, and I wanted to experience every moment of this pregnancy for myself and enjoy it without everybody else being in it with me,” she explained in an interview with Fit Pregnancy and Baby Magazine. “I didn’t want to hear, ‘Who’s the dad? Are you with the dad?’ Social media can be harsh, and I’m a mama bear, protective of my family. So, that’s why I waited to tell people, including some friends.”
