Her Powerful Message:


Revealing that she's been struggling because she "thought I’d feel so ready to do a gender reveal," the 29-year-old said that after finding out the sex of their baby, "I haven’t been able to just text anyone the 'news' and certainly don’t feel like I can tell the world." Iskra Lawrence got deep about protecting her child and rethinking oversharing on social media because "this is their life."

Calling herself a "party pooper," Iskra Lawrence informed her fans that she won't be revealing the gender because "I never want my child turning around and saying why did you decide to share my life online or make it seem like a public service announcement."
