Kyla Pratt is extra grown these days. The YBF chick is 25, she's a new mom, and she has a re-newed career starring in this season of BET's "Let's Stay Together."
Check out what Ms. Kyla recently had to say about getting married to her baby girl's father, why she chooses to address her haters (after she revealed she had a baby on the low), and just how far she's come as a mother to her baby girl Lyric....
In a new interview with VIBE VIXEN, Kyla Pratt is letting folks know she is just fine with her and her boyfriend's (above) current status as unwed parents. Marriage is in the future for the actress though. And for all you beauty addicts: How does she keeps her skin looking young and perfect? She says she keeps it simple with just cleaning and moisturizing with Kiehls.
Now do you and your man plan on getting married?
Not right now. That’s for the future. We talked about it, but we’re both on the same page.
How have you evolved since you became a mother?
Girl, [laughs] no sleep, but [my baby] is my world! That’s all I think about everyday, and everything I do is just for her. I want to make sure she’s good in her future. I’m enjoying every minute of it!
How was your pregnancy?
My pregnancy was wonderful. I have a great man by my side and a very supportive and loving family that is there for me. I got to enjoy the beauty of another human being growing inside of me.
What advice do you have for Beyoncé who is a new mother?
Girl! Lord ‘a mercy [laughs]! The only thing I would say is love that baby to the fullest, and I am sure she’ll do that.
You recently penned a letter defending your family on your blog. Did you feel you owed people an explanation?
I don’t feel I owe anybody anything; it was just about putting the truth out there, so lies can stop being spread. If they got something to say after this, they can say whatever they want, but I know I am going to tell you what it is, and that’s all I can do. I was just tired of people sending me mess. That letter was for the negative people trying to push things my way. I tried to say it the best way possible without wildin’ out [laughs]. I think I did good!
How do you deal with negativity and the rumors?
I feel like people will always have something to say, so me talking about my daughter on 106 & Park was bound to happen because that’s my everything. I never announced being pregnant because I watched people in the industry have a baby, like Jennifer Freeman and Lauren London. People don’t know the actual story or know what’s really going on, and they are so negative and hurtful. I didn’t want to go through that with my pregnancy. The baby can feel what you’re feeling, so I was like I’m going to enjoy my pregnancy without having people have something to say. So at the point of 106 and Park, it was like, she’s already here now.
