Celeste, 34, told Us Weekly about finding out, “My mom for some reason asked me to take a pregnancy test. [Moms] always seem to know. I went to the store and got two tests and sure enough, I was pregnant. I couldn’t wait, so I called my boyfriend immediately even though he was working at the time.”
Since finding out, Celeste said that she has been been doing extensive reading, “…From what to eat, how to sleep train and hypnobirthing, I want to be as informed as possible to have a harmonious journey with my baby. I’m determined to focus on the wonderful [and] empowering experience of birthing life to my first child.”
