Queen Latifah alludes to becoming a mother as she talks with the San Francisco Chronicle about how a possible pregnancy would have been written into her role of August Boatwright in the new film The Secret Life of Bees.
“August was just so nurturing and maternal and comfortable in her own skin,” the 38 year-old says of her Bees character. “And that is okay if you’ve got a little one in there and all that love is flowing through your mind. It could be kind of cool.”
The rapper turned actress also promises to keep quiet about her motherhood plans for now. “I will probably be six months pregnant before anyone knows about it and I won’t talk about the baby until after it’s born.”
