The singer also explained how she and her husband have experienced racism throughout their lives, a reality she presents in her song "Black Like Me," which was released in June, days before she found out she was pregnant.
"I've seen my husband go through racial injustices. I had a 'Karen' who falsely made claims against him and said some of the most heinous things, like the N-word. I'm raising this black kid in my womb face it, "said Guyton. "I pray for him."

The singer also admitted that when she first heard the news of her pregnancy, she felt a mixture of emotions about how motherhood could be reconciled with her growing career, describing the feeling as a "deer in the spotlight" .
"In my mind, as a woman in the music industry, you think, 'Oh, I can't be pregnant and have a career. I can't be a mother and have a career.' I was thinking these things, "explained Guyton. "I just had to do a little bit of deprogramming in my head and realize that we all deserve happiness and we all deserve families."
