Amara La Negra covers People Espanol’s digital mag

Love & Hip Hop Miami star Diana Danelys De Los Santos known to viewers as Amara La Negra announced today with People Espanol she is pregnant expecting twins.

Amara noticed she was nauseous while filming LHHMIA in August, “In July I was pregnant, but unfortunately, I lost it. And what they suspect is that they were triplets, and one was lost because the timing was too tight. I lost one and I was bleeding for three weeks and at the end of the three weeks, I was filming Love & Hip Hop Miami and I felt so nauseous that I thought the food was making me sick. Then my woman’s intuition told me: ‘Do a pregnancy test’, even though I had just lost a pregnancy. I did the test, and it came back positive. I felt so nauseous that I thought the food was making me sick. My woman’s intuition told me: ‘Do a pregnancy test’. I did the test, and it came back positive.”

She also says, “I was nervous. The first thing I thought about was in my work and my projects, having to tell my mom: ‘My life is going to change!’ I’m not going to lie, it took me like two days to process everything that had just happened. I started to cheer myself up because at the beginning I felt a lot of fear.”

Along with starring on LHHMIA, she is also the cohost of Nuestra Belleza Latina on Univision, her podcast Exactly Amara on iHeart radio and her talk show Don’t Cancel Me which will air on FUSE.

Do you travel a lot to Dominican Republic to manage your investments?   

When I go to Dominican Republic it’s to oversee my real estate investments. I am always looking for investments and in one of those trips I said: ‘Let me take advantage and go see a gynecologist because they’re really good over there.’ I had only done a urine [home pregnancy] test. When the [nurse] does the sonogram, she says: ‘Wow there are two gestational sacs.’ And I said: ‘OMG, I’m dying’. I was happy, surprised, but I couldn’t process what she was telling me. That was in September.  

How did you share the news with your boyfriend?   

In my case, I woke up pregnant like the Virgin Mary. I woke up pregnant and that’s all I remember.   

You will be a single mom then?  

I will be a single mother. There is a part of me that makes me feel more focused, stronger. I know my babies will depend on me. I also understand that the father is not the one who makes the child but the one who raises it. In time, if God grants me the blessing of finding the right man, one who supports me, who accepts me with my children, then Amen, he will be well received. But I feel blessed, and I am so happy that I sometimes forget that [I’ll be a single mom]. I am more focused on my babies.  

So you have no regrets?   

No, not at all. There is no guide that tells you how to live your life. You learn every time you stumble, from the experiences, and God had this in store for me. Even when I was in a good place with the father, I lost [a baby]. It wasn’t the time. Perhaps he wasn’t the right person either. But may God’s will be done.    

Why dedicate this photo session to Oshun?   

I’m very proud to be Black. I’m a woman who feels very connected to my ancestors, to my race. Among the orishas, Oshun is the goddess of fertility, of love, of sweetness, of gold; I wanted to represent her. I wanted to thank her and represent the goddess of fertility. Without expecting it… she gave me the blessing of having two kids. I want to maintain my blackness and my race in the forefront.
