Insecure star Issa Rae and her husband Louis are expecting, MTO News has confirmed. The couple were married last June, in Paris.
This is quite a surprise given the fact that Issa publicly told the media last fall that she “wasn’t ready” to be a mother just yet.
The Insecure star, 36, told Self magazine in September that she is “extremely happy” with her current life and isn’t ready to become a mom just yet.
“I’m extremely happy. I like my life, I like this selfishness, and I know that I have a window,” says Rae, who recently married longtime beau Louis Diame. “I’ve always felt that way, that women, Black women especially — unless you’re Viola Davis or Angela Bassett — you have a window when people are going to want to continue to see you and see what you can do.”
But MTO News spoke with two people close to Issa who tell us that Issa ids “very” pregnant. One friend estimated that Issa is “between 6 and seven months along . . . and definitely showing.”
Issa hasn’t released any recent pictures o her stomach. But she did release a video – from the chest up. And if you look closely, it does appear that she has gained weight – and her stomach looks a bit round.
