    Once Teyonah confirmed that she was pregnant, she made a special pregnancy-reveal gift for her husband, which included a box with the pregnancy test inside, "along with some other little first-time dad goodies."

    But don't expect a gender-reveal party from these two. Teyonah said she and James plan to wait till their baby's born to find out the sex.

    "My husband and I came to that decision because we feel like it's one of the greatest gifts and surprises that God can give us," she explained.

    "I think it's also helped to not have preconceived notions of our child and try not to dictate who this baby is before we even meet the baby," Teyonah concluded. "And so that's been really helpful."
