Tristan Wilds aka “Mack Wilds” is a father-to-be!

According to a post on his Instagram page, the news of his forthcoming blessing was the sign he needed from God during a very dark time in his life.

The actor and singer shared:

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.

Tristan is expecting his first child with Christina “Nina” Hammond, an author and media and talent relations strategist in the entertainment industry.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with her to interview some of her past clients.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple.
