Naturi Naughton of Starz‘s hit show POWER has released photos of her exclusive pregnancy photo shoot with ESSENCE Magazine! The mag calls her shoot “an ode to black culture,” as Naturi gives her own statement below.

“I feel really happy; pregnancy has been good to me,” … “I’m in love, I’m looking forward to just sharing this next level of life. My whole life has been about working and being in the girl group and being on stage and being an actress, but now I get to really enjoy a bigger purpose, which is motherhood, so I’m really excited.”
