Essence Atkins is counting down until baby. She recently reached out to her Twitter followers asking them to share tips to help her cope with labor and delivery.
Last Thursday, she tweeted: “Hi tweethearts- countdown 2 due date & I’m still preparing (3.5 wks 2 go).”
But she wants you to keep your horror stories to yourself. “Any CALMING tips 4 me (ppl tend 2 over share scary stories) Lol!” she added.
The Are We There Yet? actress and her husband financial executive Jaime Mendez are expecting their first child together due on Christmas day. The couple met on Match.com and were married in 2009.
“Our gratitude is overwhelming to have found each other and adding a baby to our happy home is truly a dream come true,” the couple told People magazine when they first announced the pregnancy earlier in the year.
“We are both elated and humbled by this amazing gift.”
Atkins also shared the bad news that TBS will not be airing AWTY in January 2012 but added “[t]he good news- 60 new episodes have been shot! #staytuned”.
She must be exhausted if she was part of the marathon taping of AWTY writer comedian Owen Smith talked about on Twitter Thursday.
“We are on day 2 of shooting 9 episodes in 12 days with no rehearsals,” he tweeted.
Aye caramba! Stay tuned!
