In a new episode of Peggy Rometo and Kimberly Van Der Beek's podcast Bathroom Chronicles, the star opens up for the first time about her pregnancy journey and how excited she is to finally become a mom.
She insisted it is something she has always hoped for herself, and detailed all the things she already can't wait to do with her new baby.

"It was never a question for me that I wanted to be a mom," she said, explaining: "It's like one of those weird things that I know sometimes people have such clarity about, like 'Oh, I want to be a musician, I want this.'"
She endearingly added: "That just felt like such a divine purpose and something that when I started thinking about it, felt like such joy."

"It's made me upgrade so fast, like things where I used to have such a nature to be people pleasing or to not stand up for myself for little things that then would kind of get under my skin," she said, adding: "I would say literally, maybe even a week after I got pregnant, all of a sudden, it was like, no, no, that's not going to work for me anymore."
