We were so busy checking for Baby North West and The Royal Baby last summer that we completely missed child star Kyla Pratt became a mommy for the second time. Pratt’s reps recently confirmed the actress did in fact give birth to a baby girl in August 2013. This is the second child for Pratt and boyfriend Danny “Compton” Kirkpatrick. The 27 year-old caused a stir with her first child for keeping her pregnancy a “secret” after being out of the limelight for some time. As a guest on 106 & Park in 2011, the Let’s Stay Together actress revealed she had given birth to baby girl, Lyric the previous year. In an interview with HipHollywood, Pratt reveals why she isn’t the type to Instagram every trimester of her 2010 pregnancy:
“Me personally I just feel like it’s something personal that I wanted to experience and enjoy myself.”
“Especially with the social media nowadays, people are easily able to reach you and easily able to say anything that they want to say without any consequences. When you’re pregnant, you’re hormonal, you have a lot of things going on and my fear was somebody saying something and it really effecting me when it doesn’t really matter.”
“When I announced that I had a daughter, we got a lot of backlash but I didn’t care, I had my baby. But when you’re pregnant you don’t know what somebody’s going to say, or what’s going to affect you or how you’re going to feel. I loved my pregnancy, every moment.”
“I wasn’t hiding … I went to Disneyland 8-months pregnant, I had a huge baby shower. I just have people around me who respected me and understand where I was coming from.”
It’s hard to picture little Breanna Barnes from One on One as the mommy to two little ones, but we wish a very belated congratulations to the happy couple.
In other new life news, the NY Daily News is reporting our favorite female rock star is now a mommy of three. Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale welcomed Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale into the world on February 28th. This is the third son for the couple who have been married for 11 years. Apollo has two big brothers: Kingston, 7 and Zuma, 5. Those are some creative names but we send our best wishes to the family.
