KARLA’S BABY JOY
Karla Mosley shares her news and snaps of her and beau John Rogers with us exclusively – aww!
The best possible news for B&B’s Karla Mosley – expecting a little bundle of joy with boyfriend John Rogers – is also going to present a few challenges at work! As her character Maya is transgender the bump will be impossible to write into the storyline… plus she and Rick asked her sister Nicole to be their surrogate a while back. Cue some clever camera work and hiding behind props! Here, the glowing star shares her happiness… Congratulations! Was this something you guys had planned? I couldn’t be more excited to become a mum – it’s something that I’ve always known I’ve wanted. I don’t think there is ever really a “right” time to have kids. I had a feeling it would happen soon, but I still swing between feeling entirely ready and feeling like I’m about to be landed on Mars and asked to be president of the aliens! How’s it going so far – any weird cravings? No major cravings – except for french fries in the first trimester: couldn’t get enough! But I’m vegan and early on I couldn’t stand the taste of vegetables! Or water. I have to be careful of dehydration because the taste of water is hard for me! So I always carry a little bottle of lemon juice around with me. How on Earth did you manage to keep it a secret for so long? Lots of layers! The one person who noticed early on is the woman who does my make-up on The Bold and the Beautiful. I mean, she’s staring at my face every day! But, luckily, she can keep a secret. And with your character Maya being male-tofemale transgender, how will that play out, being visibly pregnant? Acting-wise, it doesn’t change anything. But it does add some challenges for the camera people! Layers and big purses are always helpful! What was the reaction from the show and the writers when they heard? The show has been amazing! Brad [Bradley Bell, executive producer] is such a family man and he couldn’t have been more supportive. I’m actually quite shy, so some of the attention is hard to receive. So much love! I’m truly blessed. That’s great! Good luck! And can you tell us what’s happening on B&B for Maya in the coming months? Lots of fun stuff coming up for the [northern] summer. Happily the Avants are back in town!
Congrats to Karla Mosley and beau John Rogers!
