[SOUND] Joining us via Skype, Omarion's girlfriend and aspiring recording artist, April Jones. How are you April? Good. How are you? I'm fabulous. Oh, look at the cutie petite. I know. Our special guest today. [LAUGH] I had him in the playroom and then he just wanted to come out so now he's a part of the interview. [LAUGH] I love it. He's a star. So welcome to both of you. [LAUGH] First off, congratulations. We hear you're expecting baby number two. Yes. It's a little girl, correct? It is a girl. We thought it was a boy but it turned out to be a girl. So. Now are you planning another natural home birth and will we see that on the show? No you won't see it on the show. Huh. But I am planning to do this second birth this same exact way. Yes. Same way. The same way. Yes. That was a co-sign right there. [LAUGH] Yes. And we love the love between you and Amarian. And you seem to have a real relationship where. You respect each other and communicate very well. How do you maintain that under the glare of reality TV? Especially given the reality show Curse if you will. At the end of the day you know man has relationship, that's my bestfriend you know we have a strong bond. So we just knew that coming on to a reality TV set nothing was gonna really change that. Like I said, we have a lot of respect for each other. He's my best friend, and at the end of the day, our reality is our foundation and our home. When we have to go work, that's work. Right, totally understanding. Do you often maybe check in with each other just to make sure, you know, we're still on the same page, and this show of hers isn't creeping in? Absolutely. Yes. Yes, and we've never been worried about the show curse because like I said, we walked into the Love of Hiphop, you know filming knowing that you know what we were prepared for what they were going to kind of put us in, our story. And they had a lot of respect for me and Ahmari. So we kind of weren't really worried about that. And the simple fact that me and him, you know, we're best friends. And we talked with everything. So I think we knew that we were going to be okay, walking in and walking out. And we also saw towards the end of this Of the season. You're having a conversation about your musical career, and wanting to get more into that. What progress, if any, have you made on that, will we see some music coming from you fairly soon in the future? Absolutely, I'm due in March. So right now, since I've been pregnant, I'm kind of been just in the studio, I've been working. And, You know just creating and vibing and trying to find that sound. But, definitely when she drops, give it a couple of months after that. Because you know, I want to have my bonding process with her. That's when we'll be hearing something. And between the music, the family, the relationship, the filming, I don't know how you've managed to do it, but you've avoided getting pulled into the drama of other cast mates. How hard was that? Because you're often the voice of reason. You know what, like I've said, they've had a lot of respect for me on Love & Hip Hop. They never really wanted to put me in anything first season because I was obviously pregnant. Right. So I kinda stayed out of all of the drama and then second season they put me with people but I'm just normally just the person anyway that everyone kinda gets along with because I don't like to I don't like to gossip and I don't like to be in other people's problems, so I tend to just stay out the way. It wasn't much that I was going to give, being in situations, and they knew that and they respected it. Which is great. And we didn't see you or Omarion on the reunion this past week, so what's your status with the show? Well we didn't go to the reunion cuz obviously I was on tour and you know I was with him with our child and it was just too much trying to get out to New York to do the reunion so unfortunately we didn't make it but we are not going to do next season. Okay, you're not doing next season, that's final? That's the final answer. Yes. Got you. All right, well April thank you so very much for joining us, again congratulations on baby number two.
