The Haves and the Have Nots star revealed on The Real that she is getting married. 

She recently gave birth to a baby girl but has not publicly said who the baby’s father is even though there’s much speculation that the father and future husband is her co-star, Nick James. 

Sumpter says the proposal came over the Christmas holidays that started with a bit of a treasure hunt and then a letter.  *swoon* 

Regardless of who it is, looks like Ella-Loren’s mom is in a happy place. 

She also comments on the pressure to “snap back”. 

She tells women not to focus on the unrealistic “pressures of magazines” touted in Hollywood.

I'm happy regardless. (That's what that pic says) I must say the pressure to "snap back" was secondary to being present for my baby. Every story I hear about moms feeling the pressure of getting there body's back breaks my heart. Being a new mom or a mom in general is A LOT! You're still healing even after 3 months. You have to do what's right for you. You just did the most miraculous thing ever by pushing a human being out of your body! Be gentle w yourself (genetics also play a role). Know I'm rooting for you, and I too am now ready to lose this last bit of weight. What's most important is happy mommy, happy baby. Don't allow the pressures of magazines to pull you in. There's a lot going on behind the scenes that the public doesn't always get to see. I love you guys. I'll be checking in w you on my new mommy journey. P.S. Spanks go a long way. #mom #newmommyclub #happymommy #happybaby
