Happy Birthday, Zuri!

It’s hard to believe that it has been a year since Naturi Naughton welcomed her daughter, Zuri. Nevertheless, the little one celebrated her first birthday this past weekend with family members and friends by her side.


Naturi definitely went all out for her daughter’s special day. The Power actress had several pastries, including a tiered cake, that all reflected the theme of the bash. Royalty was definitely the focus as little Zuri was the princess and the attendees her supporters who ensured that she had a good time. There was an instance during the party that appeared to sadden Princess Zuri. The youngster’s mom, however, was sure to comfort her daughter and dry her tears. Don’t you just love family?

Naturi Naughton shared her experience as a mom during a conversation with ESSENCE a few weeks ago. “When you get a role in a movie or on a show, that’s exciting,” the actress explained. “But this—motherhood and being a mother– is the best and biggest role of my life.”

Naturi went on to say, “I can’t wait for my daughter, Zuri, to experience Black Girl Magic and the movement of celebrating beautiful brown women. I’m honored to be a part of that example.” We can’t wait for Zuri to experience the beauty that is the movement either, Naturi!
