Lance Gross broke hearts when it was announced that he and his girlfriend Rebecca Jefferson were engaged and are expecting their first child together, but the House of Payne actor is so happy that you can't help but be thrilled for him. During the Circle of Sisters event last weekend, the actor chatted with MadameNoire.com about his impending fatherhood, his thoughts on marriage, and why he felt that Jefferson was his soulmate.
"We're friends first. We're best friends. I'm not a fan of saying someone completes another person, but she definitely complements me and I complement her. And we just have fun together. I can't imagine myself without her," Gross said.
"I've always been a relationship type of guy. It's always been in my plans to have a wife and a family," he continued. "That's all I know, so I'm looking forward to that. I finally found the right person, my soul mate, so I'm looking forward to it. I can't wait."
Gross announced he would soon be a father with a sensual photo of a nude and pregnant Jefferson on a beach. The couple are expecting a little girl.
"I'm in a good place. I feel good. I'm excited. I'm ready to bring this child into the world and spoil 'em," he said. "My parents taught me well so I just want to share some of the things they taught me with my child."
