How would you describe your pregnant style?
I'm young and outgoing. Fearless and very spontaneous when it comes to my artistic nature for fashion. I maintain my high-end fashion look while being very comfortable and cozy. I refused to change my style due to my pregnancy -- instead I became more creative .
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your pregnant body?
People shower me with wonderful compliments the moment I unzip my jacket, most are in disbelief since I'm extremely petite. Can anyone say free natural implants? My breasts are huge!! Not to mention I can't see what's going on down there...with my feet of course. I didn't expect this, but it's ideal.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
How beautiful the body truly is, to create another being who I share intimate moments with. From playing music for the two of us, to where I'm up all night from his excitement. The different cravings and my out-of-wack hormones...it's beyond what I've ever imagined. So comfortable in my skin, that every breathing moment I am thankful!
What’s been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?
I enjoy my Zara sweatpants and Gap maternity long-sleeved T's. Since I'm always on the go, this is beyond essential. Oh, how could I forget my comfy Uggs.
What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
I'm with joy and excitement on planning different adventures around the Big Apple. Teaching and exploring my heritage with my bundle of joy. I look forward to our upcoming Central Park and Zoo summer days. Also play dates at FAO Schwarz and dress-up for Halloween.
