Responding to a fan on Twitter who asked her how she knew she was ready for a child, the pregnant actress wrote: “I don’t think you’re ever ‘ready’… but there were definitely certain boxes I wanted to tick before committing to it. the most important for me: being w/ sum1 I knew would be a great life partner. life has many variables, but once I knew I’d met the right person, I felt unafraid (sic)”

Speculations about her marriage to Jodie Turner-Smith

“In America, interracial dating or marriage is not something that is as accepted.”

When asked about the rumours, she said: “I haven’t said to anybody, ‘Yeah, we got married’. People are assuming whatever they want, but when people tell me ‘Congratulations’, I say ‘Thank you’.”

However, the star admits her reluctance to open up about her rumoured marriage comes as she has received backlash for “possibly marrying a white man”.

She explained: “There was this wave of people who were upset that I was possibly married to a white man. In America, interracial dating or marriage is not something that is as accepted. Certain people feel strongly against it, in both communities. I felt it from the black community. It is so complicated. I don’t want to give it too much energy. The horrific things that people were saying, it makes you … I’m learning there are certain things I have to really keep for myself.”
