Nick Cannon and Brittany Bell celebrated the impending birth of their baby with a Blessingway ceremony this past weekend.
A Blessingway is a ceremony rooted in Navajo tradition. The purpose of the occasion is to bring about healing while averting challenges related to pregnancy and in the home. As its name implies, the central purpose of a Blessingway is to bless the changes taking place in a family.
Brittany Bell had to this to say about the ceremony: “It was so personal and divine, to say the least,” the expectant beauty queen shared with her social media fans after the event concluded. “[I was] surrounded by love, protection, spiritual connection, and genuine prayers,” Brittany told her Instagram followers.
Nick Cannon has openly navigated his spiritual path for at least three years. The veteran actor received both praise and backlash in 2017 for his decision to wear a turban.
“I grew up in an environment where I was exposed to religion and spirituality at a very young age,” Nick shared of his spiritual experience during a 2017 interview with HipHopDx. “It made me ask questions, and then when I didn’t get the answers that I wanted, I started looking within and doing my own research rather than following the flock,” Cannon explained.
“I would say this was as early as my adolescent years,” the veteran actor continued. “Obviously, we grow daily, but it was in my early adulthood that I started to realize I was in control of my own destiny, that I had to make my mark, and my true purpose had to be implemented. This was based off (sic) my own sense of spirituality.”
Nick Cannon and Brittany Bell are expecting their second child to arrive in the coming weeks.
