Actor Tristan Wilds (The Wire, Red Tails, Secret Life of Bees, Half Nelson) announced Christmas Day that he and his longtime girlfriend Christina Hammond are expecting a child.
Wilds usually stays away from the spotlight; we haven’t heard a peep from him since his arrest in New York last summer for driving with a suspended license. But the actor jumped on Instagram to share the good news with fans while celebrating with family and friends at the couple’s baby shower on Christmas day.
Acknowledging he was in a “dark place” before learning of the pregnancy, Wilds writes, “Aight, serious moment… Earlier this year, I was in a really dark place. Sh*t, honestly? I’d been there for a while. I dunno, i was just letting life take me wherever she may. But I told God I needed a light. I needed a sign that I was supposed to be here, and that my presence here on earth was needed…Heard ju, God. Thank you for this. Merry Christmas.”
