For one thing, I was going through this amazing physical transition, this physical journey of having a baby, that my character was not going through. And I work very physically. What I do is often grounded in the body.” In last October US weekly was the first to break the news of Kerry expecting her first baby with husband Nnamdi Asomugha. This time was really tough as she had many scenes to be finished.
While expressing how tough it was for her pregnant body to adjust she said,” That meant I had to figure out how to be this woman while my instrument was changing and evolving every day. It was like seeing the keys on a piano jump around on a daily basis. It was tough for me to even maintain Olivia’s walk because of the changes.”As she was experiencing changes in her body there were emotional ups and downs too. She adds, “At the same time, everything I understood about Olivia unraveled because of the shorelines.”
