So wonderful having you there! ”


In a recent interview with ESSENCE, Naughton and Lewis opened up about their feelings towards this next chapter in their lives. Naughton, who had a rocky first trimester, said she’s been “pretty good, minus the heartburn”.

“I’ve been working a lot, outside the home but also just working on getting the nursery together and different things we’ve got going on. But I’m definitely starting to slow down now,” she said.

Two Lewis has been amazed by watching her do it all, from working on an action movie to working out every day, all while being a great mom to their daughter Zuri.

“Watching her do all these different things, like shoot an action movie, going on stage and singing in front of everybody, working out every day and still being a great mom to Zuri, it’s very empowering,” he says. “To see a woman go through this from somebody I just saw with a flat stomach to getting a growing body, it’s amazing to see up close. It’s very godly, very close to God.”

The couple has enlisted the help of a care team of Black women, including OB-Gyn Kameelah Phillips and a Black doula, to ensure a safe and healthy pregnancy and birth. Naturi had an emergency C-section with Zuri and is planning on having a VBAC this time around.

“It was really important to me to have an Ob-Gyn who is really paying attention to Black maternal health,” shared Naughton.

“We decided that one of the ways to ensure that we have support on both ends is having a doula and making sure that this pregnancy is different from my last pregnancy. The process of laboring, birth, postpartum, the whole thing,” she added.

Zuri, who is excited to become a big sister, talks to her mom’s belly every day.

“The first thing she started thinking about was, ‘We can all go to Disney World as a family of four! We’re the perfect family!’” Naughton says. “She’s got jobs written down that she wants to do. She’s five years old. She’s like, ‘I want to help change diapers.’ I’m glad that I’ll have a helpful toddler on my side.”
