She says absolutely! “I felt the presence of God this time around. That’s when I was like, oh, this is it. So yes, I’ve been praying, making declarations and I still do as I see the baby grow with the ultrasounds and all that.”
How did her parents, Karen Clark-Sheard and Bishop John Drew Sheard Sr., take the news? “Oh my God, tears of joy,” said Sheard-Kelly. “They just keep crying every time. Because like I said, I experienced two miscarriages prior to this, but every time it was just, you know, was getting pregnant, it was just where was the pregnancy going that was the challenge. So, we’ve celebrated every time and we’re just super grateful about the miracle. We went to the doctors and it was just like I was like, I don’t want the doctor’s hands in this. I just want to do it myself.”
