Grace Byers was all smiles as she posed with her co-stars at Prime Video’s “Harlem” Season 2 Exclusive Los Angeles Screening on February 02, 2023 in Los Angeles, California. The pregnant star wore a Hatchgal fit as she promoted the new season of the comedy series.
Byers is expecting her first child with former Empire co-star, Trai Byers. Last November, the actress opened up about her pregnancy and how it has taught her to be in the moment.
“Although becoming a mother requires great strength, I’m taken aback by the invitations of softness and delicacy that coax me as I take strides in this new season,” she captioned a photo of herself cradling her growing baby bump.
She continued, “The permission for rest and ease – even when things can feel overwhelming – still throws me sometimes. Most of all, I’m deeply grateful for all the ways in which love and tender support abound. The constant care-offerings and genuine investments are more than I would have accepted, simply because I’m always determined to do everything on my own.”
She further explained, “To be easy. To be soft. To allow others – without request – to lift the weight, take the initiative, ask the questions, do the pouring and cover the things that I may need (or not even know that I needed) is something I’m still not used to and continue to get emotional over. At the moment, I’m sitting with the permission to lean. To tranquilize. To lull in the spaces that have made room. And this, somehow, awakens a different type of strength. Learning so much in this sacred time. Grateful for each soul helping to carry me. Love-dazed by this life growing inside of me. In awe of this new-found fortitude. Amen.”
Harlem Season 2 is currently on Amazon Prime Video. The show stars Camille (Meagan Good), Quinn (Grace Byers), Tye (Jerrie Johnson), and Angie (Shoniqua Shandai), in lead roles.
