Tika Sumpter is known for her role as Candice on “The Haves and the Have Nots” and as Michelle Obama in the movie “Southside With You” but next month she will take on a new role…mommy!
The actress who is due to give birth to a baby girl next month has mostly kept quiet about her pregnancy until now, she is the cover story in the October issue of ‘Fit Pregnancy and Baby’ magazine and she reveals how she found out that she is expecting.
“My pregnancy wasn’t planned. I found out around Valentine’s Day, when my boyfriend took me on a surprise trip to San Diego” she said. “I never want McDonald’s, but I was like, ‘I need a Big Mac, fries, and a Coke now.’ They were still only serving breakfast, so I insisted we wait there until they started serving lunch. Afterward, I immediately fell asleep. When I woke up, my boyfriend was like, ‘Ha-ha! Are you pregnant?’ I said, ‘Maybe. Go get a test!’ He brought back a generic-brand test, and right away it said positive. I could not comprehend it. So I said, ‘Go get a name-brand test!’ He did, and that one said yes too. I still have the stick. I had to show it to my mom, because she didn’t even believe me when I told her.”
