Singer Letoya Luckett-Walker had two of her dreams come true back-to-back. Shortly after marrying her husband, Tommicus Walker, the new bride found out she was expecting their first child. The couple welcomed Gianna Man Walker into the world on January 5th of this year. She was born 7lbs and 15 oz.
“Our lives are forever changed,” the Destiny Child’s wrote on Twitter at the time of their bundle of joy.
Walker’s highly publicized breakups led the southern girl to prayer. She found that all of her hopes and dreams came true when she surrendered her future to God.
“I’m not saying that you shouldn’t get out there and go for yours,” the wife and mother told ESSENCE exclusively in July 2018.
“But I am saying, when you really hand the reigns over [to Him] and get out of the driver seat of your life, and really allow God to step in and do what he’s been doing all along and get out of the way, then boom…it happens. So maybe a couple months after I threw that list out and said, ‘God, I’m giving this over to you’, it happened.”
Continuing, “You pray for things, and you know we all have our wishlists, but I’ve learned to pray for whatever’s in your will,” Luckett added. “And I found myself throwing out my list that I had held dear to my heart for several years of what I wanted out of a man and what I felt I wanted to do in the next few years, and I ended up throwing that list out. Because I was like, alright Lord, if that ain’t in your plan and that ain’t in your will, I don’t want it. And it kind of took the reigns out of my hand. I got sick of running into the wall.”
