"I Cannot Believe That It's My Turn"

Congratulations to Raven Goodwin who is expecting her first child. The Being Mary Jane star shared a beautiful pregnancy update over the weekend that expressed love for her family.

“Nurturer, survivor, daughter, sister, friend, now a MOMMY,” Goodwin told her Instagram fans. “I cannot believe that it’s my turn,” the expectant mom continued.


“I’m so thankful to be carrying a healthy baby girl who’s energy has been nothing short of strength. I love you baby girl! To my life partner and best friend, you are going to be a beautiful father. Seeing you and her together will heal me in more ways then you know! We are parents, baby!!! Coming soon!”

Raven Goodwin and her partner are expecting their daughter to arrive in April. The Being Mary Jane identifies her partner as Wiley Joe, despite blogs reporting that Raven and Micah Williams were engaged last year.

The public may not know much about Goodwin’s life partner, but one thing is for certain: Raven’s baby girl will definitely be surrounded by love. In fact, the actress and her unborn child were already at the center of affection earlier this month as makeup artist Bobbie Riley gave Raven Goodwin an unforgettable baby shower.


“Yet somehow, no matter how far or how busy, life brings us back together to celebrate these incredibly happy times in our life,” Riley wrote online after the festivities ended. “I’m so excited for you @ravengoodwin,” Bobbie added. “You’re going to make an amazing mother.”
