Congrats are in order for actress and singer Naturi Naughton! PEOPLE has exclusively revealed that the Power star and former 3LW member is pregnant with her first child, due in July:

“It’s been a little surreal, but I feel really good, healthy and strong. It’s such a blessing. I feel like being pregnant and entering this new stage has made me stronger and more excited about life in general. Everything seems so much more purposeful.”

Naturi found out about the news while filming the current season of the hit Starz TV show. Naturi tells PEOPLE that after she discovered and shared with her co-stars, they became very protective of her on set:

“They’ve been really good at keeping it on the low, but they’re also super excited. Omari [Hardwick], who plays my husband, we have kids on the show and he’s like, ‘Now you get to be experiencing motherhood in real life!’ Everyone’s been really supportive.”

Naturi has been dating longtime boyfriend Ben for quite sometime, as they regularly share photos of one another on Instagram.

I’m so happy for Naturi and I wish her and Ben the best of luck in the birth of their bundle of joy!
