Trust is a major factor for Monique Samuels who is expecting her second child with husband Christopher Samuels. The celebrity mom tells Us Weekly how she is moving along in her second pregnancy despite the shadow of miscarriage being present.
“I almost wanted to detach myself from the pregnancy because I didn’t want to feel any hurt or pain if something did happen,” Monique says. “I made the decision that I want to enjoy this pregnancy and whatever happens, happens. I had to turn on my positive thinking and say, ‘You know, I’m just gonna trust and believe in God.'”
Monique shared news of her and Christopher’s expectancy last month. The celebrity mom has, however, been reluctant to tell her two children. “I am going to try and wait as long as I can before I tell them, this way they won’t have so much time to wait,” Mrs. Samuels says. However, “If they come to me and they are like, ‘Mommy, your tummy is getting big. Is there a reason here?’ I’m gonna tell them.”
Monique Samuels will soon give fans more details about her life as a celebrity wife and mom in her upcoming podcast, “Not For Lazy Moms.” The first episode will address social media and relationships. “It’s something that affected our relationship,” Monique says of social media’s influence. “We wanted to put it out there because we felt like there may be other people dealing with the same thing. We were able to work through it and this is life.”
Catch Monique Samuels’ “Not For Lazy Moms” on iHeartRadio starting on August 1, 2018. Stay tuned for more celebrity pregnancy updates!
