We’d be lying if we said we didn’t check Let’s Stay Together star Kyla Pratt’s Instagram on the reg for updates on her two little daughters, Lyric and Liyah.
The Dr. Dolittle child star-turned-mom managed to secretly have two babies under the Hollywood radar with boyfriend Danny “KP” Kilpatrick over the course of several years. To prove just how secretive Kyla is, she finally debuted her kidlets this past April for the entire world to see, and it was worth the wait!
But since then, it’s been baby-free land on Kyla’s social media site… except for today! It turns out it’s Kyla’s youngest daughter’s birthday and she is turning the big 1. The proud mama took to Insta to give Baby Liyah a sweet shoutout, and of course, share a snapshot.
“Today will always be one of the best days of my life. One year ago today my youngest entered the world,” Kyla captioned the photo. “Our little miracle baby is healthy & happy & that is all we need. Thank you God for choosing me. Happy Birthday to Miss Liyah. We love you baby.”
Kyla recently opened up to HipHollywood to talk about why she kept her two pregnancies a secret, and we’ve got to hand it to her, girlfriend hid it well. “Me personally, I just feel that’s something personal that I wanted to experience and enjoy myself,” she explained.
“Especially with social media nowadays, people are easily able to reach you and easily able to say what the way want to you without consequences and when you’re pregnant, you’re hormonal and got a lot of things going on.”
Kyla went on to add, “My fear was somebody saying something and it really affecting me, when it doesn’t really matter. I loved my pregnancy every moment. I wasn’t hiding, sitting in the house with my shades drawn…I just have people around me that respect me and understand where I was coming from.” Point taken!
Happy 1st birthday, Liyah!
