American actress and singer, Naya Rivera and her husband, Ryan Dorsey are expecting their first child together. Naya got married to her actor husband, Ryan in July 2014. By February 2015, the actress took to Twitter to announce that she was expecting a baby. Naya has been so public about her pregnancy and the various stages and changes she has been experiencing. She has managed to keep the gender of her soon-t0-arrive baby secret.
Naya who is currently in her third trimester recently spoke to Yahoo Style about everything concerning her pregnancy. She also posed for some photos for Yahoo Style including one where she was totally nude except for a fur robe which managed to protect her privates.
The whole thing, really, has been surprising and new! It’s such a change physically, mentally, and in terms of lifestyle, that I definitely didn’t know what to expect going into it. I have friends who are moms, and you hear stories and stuff, but it’s never the same until you actually experience it yourself. So I think everything has pretty much surprised me.
On keeping to a diet
I’ve been really conscious to make sure that, nutritionally, I’m giving the baby everything that it needs: vegetables and vitamins and all sorts of stuff. I’ve found, like, the best supplements and all of that… but I definitely have my vices, And it’s nice to be able to indulge in them for once. I’m paying the price, but it’s nice!
On what should be more pronounced about pregnancy
There’s a lot, physically, that changes with your body when you’re pregnant, and I guess no one could’ve warned me about that stuff. But being in the public eye when you’re pregnant is really, really hard, and people can be so mean on the Internet, it’s insane. Pregnancy is such a beautiful time to me, and I feel like you should embrace your body in whatever stage it’s in. So it’s kind of hard being an actress, being a celebrity, and having people scrutinize how you physically look, and just saying the craziest things.
