When I first began my career with Expecting Models it was my first pregnancy.  I was a Musician, an Actress and soon to be a single Mom. Although the road to living my dream has had its ups and downs, I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. My work with Expecting Models definitely helped me financially and with a new baby on its way my determination to live my life to the fullest grew alongside my growing belly.

People come into your life for a reason and I didn’t realize it, but being a single mom to Sebastian Aleksander would be one of many wonderful life lessons and the most liberating and empowering experience.  I continued to pursue my career in the arts and entertainment business as well as of one day finding my prince charming, getting married and growing my family.  I knew that one day I would be able to have it all.

Today, my life is a different story.  I am back with Expecting Models.  This is my second pregnancy. I have found my prince charming.  My husband is my soul mate and the love of my life.  He’s my son’s best friend and we are expecting a little girl in the spring.

I share my story of never letting go of my dream because I am sure it isn’t an uncommon story.  I’d love to hear about your story.

    Heather,
    Can’t wait to hear more. I’m a single mom with 2 kids and wait on tables at night. How did you manage to keep it together? Thank you for your inspiration.

  3. Heather,

    What a beautiful story! I also have a son and daughter who are simply amazing. Wishing you the very best.

    Hi Heather,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story. As a teenage mother I was determined to make something of myself. I wanted to be the best I could be for my son. I worked my way through many tough times hoping to one day get through college and I did. My son is now in his early 20’s living his dream and I am living out my dream daily.
    I look forward to hearing more about you. What’s it like working with Expecting Models the second time around and is Sebastian Aleksander excited for baby number 2?

      Congrats on the success of you and your son!
      Working with Expecting Models second time around is like a dream, round two! haha
      I love them! They are still as kind as ever and very supportive. It feels like a second home. And they keep you working!!!

      Regarding Sebastian, he is over the moon about his little sister. Kissing my belly everyday, helping me around the house, carrying groceries. He’s an amazing kid already, so easy and kind. He can’t wait share his love with her. Its precious.

        I had my second child, Olivia when my son was 13. She’s 11 now and it’s truly amazing to watch them love each other.

        What’s your typical Model Mommy day like With Expecting Models?

    @Single mom w 2kids:
    How did I “manage”? Well as I’m sure you know…we manage because we have no choice. Its amazing the lack of sleep one can endure after having a child. And when you’re a single mother knowing that your kiddies only have you to depend on, your inner lioness kicks in and we make it happen. But no matter how hard we try, life will still throw us an obstacle or two (or a million) our way. I was lucky to have found an AMAZING caregiver and without her, things would have been different. I could leave my son knowing he was in good hands and be able to focus on the tasks at hand.
    Its okay to admit that you need help. It takes a village right?
