Paras Griffin/Getty Images for BETTyrese and his wife Samantha Lee are expecting their first child together, a girl, sometime in September, and he surprised her with a maternity photo shoot at their home in Georgia,
“To go almost completely bare in a lot of photos was an extremely, extremely challenging experience,” Samantha tells People.com.
“But on the bright side,” she adds, “I was really happy because pregnancy is a process. Your body is changing, and to be able to accept that change publicly and really just put it out there like that confidently — I tried to trick myself into thinking I was doing something for women all over the world.”
The couple adds that the pregnancy is “truly an answered prayer,” and they call their soon-to-be-born daughter a “beautiful gift that we do not and will not ever take for granted.”
The photo shoot also include shots with Tyrese’s 11-year old daughter, Shayla, from his first marriage.
Tyrese and Samantha secretly wed on Valentine’s Day in 2017. He announced in April that she was expecting a daughter, who they’ve named Soraya.
