General Hospital alum Briana Nicole Henry (ex-Jordan Ashford) and her husband, Kris Bowers, are expecting their first child together -- a baby girl! The actress took to Instagram to share the news -- and to confess that her pregnancy has challenged her with new feelings and new emotions.
"I have been so hesitant about sharing this for a myriad of reasons. I think mostly because I'm still processing all this change, this new evolution of myself," Henry posted. "Pregnancy is different for everyone, but for myself, it's revealed a level of vulnerability that has brought me to my knees most days. It has illuminated what magic it is that any of us have gotten here in the first place, and that that arrival was due to sacrifice and a deep loveÖ."
Henry also shared that she feels "powerful and weak" and as if she is "getting to know a completely different version" of who she is.
"When Iím ready, Iíll share more about my journey with you all," Henry continued. "Primarily because listening to and reading other motherís stories about the rawness that is motherhood has helped remind me of my power and that Iím not alone. That pregnancy asks us to become homes to people we never could have dreamt up even in the most beautiful of dreams. That it would demand us to surrender a version of ourselves to people we havenít met yet but yearn to. @krisbowersmusic I love you. The thought of you holding our little one in your big beautiful hands makes me want to cry with such gratitude. She will be so adored, so loved, so empowered.Ē
