Tika Sumpter took to Instagram this morning to offer the first glimpse of her baby girl, Ella-Loren.
Not much is known about the little one, but we’re happy for Tika.
According to reports, Ella’s father is Tika’s boyfriend of two years and ‘The Haves and the Have Nots’ co-star Nicholas James.
In an interview back in September, Tika revealed that her pregnancy wasn’t planned and that she’s not in a rush to get married.
“My pregnancy wasn’t planned. I found out around Valentine’s Day, when my boyfriend took me on a surprise trip to San Diego. 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.”
“One of the first questions my mother asked when she found out I was pregnant was ‘Are you going to get married?’ I’d love to, but maybe in a year or so. I’ve been with my boyfriend for more than a year and a half. Our relationship is not dependent on a ring. I love him to death, and he loves me to death, and that’s all that matters to me.”
Congrats to Tika (and Nicholas)!
