Love & Hip Hop: New York star Tara Wallace had tons to tell OKMagazine.com in our exclusive interview with her following her surprise pregnancy announcement on the reality TV hit. And as she continues to celebrate her and Peter Gunz's big baby news, we've gathered even more pregnancy secrets she shared with us and several gorgeous exclusive photos from the beauty's recent maternity shoot!
Wallace told OKMagazine.com that her pregnancy was a complete shock, seeing that she had been working hard to get her body TV ready ahead of LHHNY's Season 6 return in the fall! "What people don’t know is that I was working so hard over the summer. All I kept thinking about was this season for Love & Hip Hop I’ve got to be in shape. I need to be toned," she said. "I was going really hard. There are 28 stairs leading up to my apartment, and I would be doing thirty laps of that for my cardio. Then I would be lifting weights, and they would be a part of that."
But Wallace added that she became a little suspicious once her workouts became a little harder than usual. "I was just like, 'I don’t feel well.' I got to where I could only do 25 laps. And it got to where I could do 20 laps and then I’m like, 'Wait a minute. I feel like I need a waist trainer!'"
Once she learned of her pregnancy, she said that telling her two sons with Gunz, Jamison and Kaz, wasn't the easiest task. "When I finally said, 'How would you feel if mommy is having another baby,' my son Jamison was like, 'Umm are you too old?'" Wallace said. "He was not really processing it. So then finally I was just like, 'Mommy’s having another baby.' And then he said, 'Really!' He was very very excited."
"He was like, 'Mom, we just thought you needed a waist trainer and it’s a baby,'" Wallace added jokingly. "Everyday I would be getting dressed to go to work and I'm like, 'Where is my waist trainer?' So it was like the problem is solved. You don’t need a waist trainer."
"From that moment on, when I saw his response, for me, it just changed everything. Nothing else and no one else mattered," Wallace said. "That was probably a turning point for me when I was like this is a great thing. I’m having another baby and that’s what it is."
And she admits that even her youngest son, Kaz, is joining the love fest! "He just rubs my belly all the time and he’s like, "Mom, your belly is getting bigger. You need to go to the doctor," Wallace said with a laugh. What do you think about Tara's pregnancy reveal and her maternity shoot? Tweet us @OKMagazine or let us know in the comments section below.
