Move over Halle Berry, it is time to share your spotlight! Halle announced a short time ago that she was expecting her second child at the age of 46 which she said was the shock of her life. Well watch out Halle, here comes Kim Fields! The 44 year old child-star actress and director announced her pregnancy on Fox’s new daytime show The Real during her appearance.
Fields went on to tell the audience more after a hearty round of applause. She says it is a boy and his name is going to be Quincy Xavier. She has one son already who is now six, named Sebastian Alexander. Sebastian is very excited to be having a little brother. Kim’s husband Christopher is ecstatic as well.
Kim and Christopher had been trying to get pregnant for a few years before this, so this was not a complete shock like Halle’s pregnancy, but more of a pleasant surprise that it may finally be happening for them. Fields revealed that she had miscarried twice before this pregnancy but through it all her husband was there for her, being a great support system when she needed it.
Fields encourages women who feel like they are having symptoms such as forgetfulness, clumsiness, and mood swings to get checked for pregnancy in their forties. She thought she was going through pre-menopause, which can have many of the same symptoms. She began to get sick after her son got a stomach virus, but there was something different about it. Her husband convinced her to go to see the doctor because she may have been dehydrated and when she did, she was told she was two months pregnant!
