Essence Atkins Discusses Her Pregnancy With Essence Magazine

Dance Flick actress Essence Atkins is currently awaiting the arrival of her first child with husband Jaime Mendez, and she opened up to Essence magazine regarding her pregnancy.

“I didn’t have any morning sickness, everything has been extremely well,” Atkins tells Essence. “The only thing I changed was that I stopped working out.”

“It’s funny, we weren’t trying. I just looked in the mirror one morning at my body and it looked different,” the actress shares. “My breasts were bigger, I stood in front of my husband and said, ‘Honey, I think I’m pregnant.'”
