Tika Sumpter Gives Birth and Is Already Keeping It 100 About Being a Mom

The actress officially joins the mommy club.

Congratulations are officially in order for Haves and Have Nots star Tika Sumpter. According to People, she just welcomed a new baby girl, Ella-Loren, earlier this month.

The Southside With You actress recently also took to Twitter to give it up to all the parents and guardians out there who take care of children on a daily basis, pointing out that “it ain’t no joke.” Take a look at her tweet below:

Tika kept her pregnancy to herself for some time before making the news public back in August. She explained in an interview that she wanted to experience the moment for herself and not for Hollywood.

“She’s my first child, and I wanted to experience every moment of this pregnancy for myself and enjoy it without everybody else being in it with me,” she said. “I didn’t want to hear, ‘Who’s the dad? Are you with the dad?’”
