Malika Haqq froze her eggs as a 35th birthday present to herself but discovered she was pregnant with a baby “made in love” just months later.
The 36-year-old model/actress announced she was pregnant with her first child in September by posting a shot of herself holding a positive pregnancy test. She later revealed she’s expecting a baby boy.
Malika opened up about her pregnancy on the latest episode of her new series Side by Side, with sister Khadijah Haqq McCray, and said that she found out she was pregnant exactly one year after deciding to freeze her eggs.
“The reason why I was so excited to learn that I was pregnant was because I knew that my life was going to change for the better, the greatest blessing that I’ve always wanted but didn’t know I was going to get, is finally here,” she shared. “I didn’t know when I was going to have children, so deciding to freeze my eggs as a gift to myself on my 35th birthday was pretty hilarious now at this point because I have eggs in the freezer I may never use. I made a baby in love and those eggs weren’t necessary.”
The reality star BFF of Khloe Kardashian has made the decision to keep the baby’s father’s identity a secret for now, but added she will “absolutely” name him in the future.
“My baby was made in love and that is something that will unfold at a later date,” she concluded.
