Last night on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Kalenna went to the doctor with Rasheeda to confirm that she’s pregnant. While her physician seemed concerned, ultimately she got a thumbs up and is now prepping for baby number two. VH1 had a chat with Kalenna about motherhood, baby names and having her whole family under one roof finally.
“I just got back from the doctor. The doctor said, ‘How you feeling?’ I said, ‘Oh, okay, my lower back’s cramping, my legs are cramping, stuffy nose. [Laughs] And he was like, ‘Oh, regular pregnancy stuff.’ I am four and a half months. I’ll be five months in, maybe a week and a half. I’m due on December 25th! I have a Christmas baby.”
Boy or Girl
“Of course, I want a little girl and that would definitely make my life totally complete but I’m definitely not pressed for anything but a healthy baby at this point. You know there were complications in the beginning and it was just like, we hope everything’s okay with the baby. The doctor was pretty concerned. Everything turned out to be cool but once that happened I just didn’t want to mess with the serendipity of it all. 10 fingers, 10 toes and no health issues and I’m straight.” [Laughs]
“If it’s a girl I want to name her Savannah Elise and if it’s a boy I want to name him Noah. Those names mean so much to me. My cousin recently passed and her name was Elise. Savannah has always been a beautiful place to visit with so much history there. It reminds me of a princess name. And of course Noah, we all know the story of Noah. He was just a G.”
Family Under One Roof
“[Our son] Meshach‘s home now. He started school this semester. It’s a real thing because I’ve been on the road and performing and on tour with Diddy. Meshach and I have been spending very scattered time [together]. Now he’s here with me and it’s a blessing and I can’t wait to see how he works with the baby and works with being with mom and dad 24/7. It’s been a change for me already.
He’s so excited [to be a big brother.] The first thing he does in the morning is kiss my belly or rub it. I told him he could talk to the baby, it can hear you. He’s just excited to be able to tell someone else what to do, that’s what he keeps saying. [Laughs] That’s what we all wanna do, right?”
