"So Deeply Moved"

Aja Naomi King is pregnant! The actress announced her expectancy with joy after having suffered multiple miscarriages.


“I really can’t begin to express the fullness of our immense joy to be welcoming a baby into our family,” Aja wrote online. “With that, I also want to express that this beautiful journey has not been devoid of heartbreak,” the actress added. “This is my beautiful little rainbow baby.”

Aja Naomi endured the heartache of two miscarriages on her journey to family expansion. “I’ve been so deeply moved by the women who have openly shared their miscarriages,” Naomi shared with her social media fans. “It brought me solace in a time that was incredibly painful to know I wasn’t alone. To understand that this experience is common, horrible but still common.”

Aja expressed excitement about the impending birth of her son. The celebrity also admitted her fears because of the miscarriages. “I won’t lie, it’s been hard to not carry my fear with me throughout this pregnancy,” the actress said.

“To believe that it’s real and that this baby will be okay. That this beautiful gift will remain. But I try to not ignore the facts, and the facts are that I am healthy and my baby is healthy, my baby is growing and now kicking and constantly reminding me of their very real presence within me.”

Aja gave words of encouragement in her pregnancy announcement to women dealing with the pain of miscarriage and fertility struggles. “No matter the size of it in your mind, pain is pain and loss is loss, whatever the degree. And once you are touched by it, it stays with you forever,” the expectant star said. “If you’ve gone through this or are going through this, you don’t have to carry the weight of it alone.”
