Remember when Kyla Pratt (Dr. Dolittle, One on One) threw the world for a loop after it was revealed that she had a daughter named Lyric with boyfriend Danny “KP” Kilpatrick? Well, the former child star just did it again! We’ve recently learned that Kyla and KP in fact welcomed a second daughter this past August! According to TheYBF, Kyla’s rep, Ernest Dukes, confirmed, “Kyla gave birth to a healthy baby girl in August 2013 and is currently enjoying motherhood for the second time around.”
When HipHollywood caught up with Kyla, the sleuthy mom of two (can you believe it?) explained why she decided to keep her pregnancies out of the media:
“Me personally, I just feel that’s something personal that I wanted to experience and enjoy myself,” she told the website. “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. 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.”
Kyla went on to say that she “wouldn’t mind” being on the red carpet to promote a project if she were pregnant again, but “getting attention is not something that excites me.”
“I’m just chilling, enjoying mommyhood and decorating nurseries,” she gushed. And will there be more nurseries to decorate in the future? If she has her way! Kyla gabbed that she’d love to have more children.
“I got my hands full right now, but definitely, yes. I’m a part of a big family, and my joke is I’d like for us to be a little gang, you know, you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us and I want my babies to have that same thing.”
