Beverley Mitchell: I didn’t think I was ready for a baby

Beverley Mitchell didn’t believe she could handle parenthood until she welcomed her first child Kenzie Lynne with husband Michael Cameron.

The actress welcomed her first child, a daughter named Kenzie Lynne, three months ago.

However she believes she and her husband Michael Cameron kept making excuses to put off starting a family.

“We didn’t think we were ready, but at the same time, what does that mean?” she told People magazine.

“Everyone is always waiting to be so far in their career, to have this amount of money, to travel the world or this or that. The reality is you will always find some reason that you can’t do something.”

The 32-year-old wed in 2008 and after five years of building a family foundation she thinks now is the perfect time for parenthood.

The 7th Heaven star believes the occasion naturally came when she could manage being a mother.

“It happened exactly when it should have for us,” she added.

When it came to picking a name for the tot, she insists the decision wasn’t too difficult.

As soon as they spoke the name to each other, they were sold on it.

“We wanted to come up with something that was fun and young,” she admitted.

“One day Michael said, ‘How about Kenzie?’ and from that day forth, we fell madly in love with it. [Her middle name is the same as] Michael’s mom’s. Kenzie Lynne Cameron just sounds right.”
