Silas Vassar IIILeToya Luckett is full of joy these days: After getting married in December, she’s now expecting her first child. But family aside, LeToya says it’s her spirituality that’s truly the key to her happiness.
“It’s very important to have that prayer life,” Luckett tells Essence. “It’s very important to communicate always.”
The former Destiny’s Child member married Tommicus Walker in December, and she says when their relationship was tested, prayer kept them strong.
“The Enemy doesn’t like marriage,” Luckett says. “He doesn’t like marriage, and he will try you, and things have come up. Not terrible things, but things that can shift your relationship presented themselves very early in our relationship and we stood firm…and together.”
Luckett divorced her first husband, Rob Hill Sr., last year. She says she allowed God to guide her to Walker.
“When you really hand the reins 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,” she explains.
Walker has a six-year old daughter, Madison, from a previous relationship, and Luckett says being open about their emotions has created a happy blended family.
“I call Madison my ‘daughter-in-love’ and I’m her ‘mommy-in-love. She’s a sweetheart and she’s very vocal about her feelings,” Luckett says. “We talk about everything, and he allows me the space, and that’s the thing I love about my husband.”
