Zonnique Pullins reveals her baby bump in a maternity shoot shoot by photographer Will Sterling, . The singer, who is expecting her first child with rapper Bandhunta Izzy (real name Israel James), opens up about her pregnancy in a new interview with People.com.
Pulins is nearing the end of her pregnancy and is feeling “pretty good. Although she is “really tired all the time,” Zonnique says she “can’t complain at all” considering what she expected.
“Compared to stories I’ve heard growing up and how bad some people carry pregnancy, I have not one complaint about how it has been for me,” she says. “I never had morning sickness. I got to work and record a lot of good music during this pregnancy and in the beginning got to travel a little bit, even with the pandemic. … I didn’t even crave anything, honestly. It was like doing what I do every day, with someone riding along with me the entire time.”
“I thought I would be eating everything in sight, including some weird cravings, and I remember in the beginning crying because me and my boyfriend ordered pizza and I didn’t want any,” Pullins adds, laughing. “I was so hurt that usually I would be so happy and I could hardly stand the smell of food, but even that feeling didn’t stay for long.”
“I would say the most different thing would be how you have to go into doctor visits alone because of COVID, and I’m sure labor will be nothing like I expected because of it, as well,” she continues.
Pullins says she is looking forward to motherhood and having a daughter.
“I’m honestly just looking forward to always having a partner and something that I can literally say I made that I’ll always be proud of and be able to grow with,” says the mom-to-be, 24. “And the lessons I’ll get to teach and learn all at the same time is a really exciting feeling for me.”
She adds of her excitement, “Also being able to add another loving child to our big family — everyone is just so ready for her to get here, so I’m excited to see where she’ll fit in our growing family.”
