The singer is pregnant for the first time! According to new reports, Rachel Platten, 37, is going to be a mom and she couldn’t be more excited.
The star took to social media earlier today to announce that she and hubby Kevin Lazan are expecting their first baby together!
Rachel shared with her followers on Instagram a photo that featured her, holding her baby bump.
In the caption, she wrote: ‘This is one of my most exciting announcements, but also one of my most vulnerable. So here goes…. I am pregnant! I cannot believe I am finally typing these words – As I thought about how to share what I’ve been experiencing, I became paralyzed about doing it the perfect way – how to express all my total bliss and yet all of this fear too? I finally realized that I cannot worry about making being ME comfortable for everyone else, I have to share this journey MY WAY: with honesty, vulnerability, love and an open heart.’
She went on to also say that while she and her husband are thrilled beyond measure, she admitted that she’d spent the spring and this summer being very tired, sick and nauseous.
Apparently, the symptoms were horrible, and she wanted to mention them, something not many women talk about when sharing their ‘‘perfect blessed journey’ of pregnancy.’
Rachel added: ‘I was so afraid that if I shared that part (the difficulty of flying and performing while puking in green rooms and airplanes) that I’d seem ungrateful somehow when I’m actually crazy full of gratitude – I’m just HUMAN.’
As for the still unborn baby’s gender, that is yet to be announced.
Congratulations Rachel and Kevin on your first addition to the family!
