“Dressing alike, mommy-daughter day dates, singing together and teaching her all the important things I learned from my mother,” Naughton previously shared of what she’s excited about.
“I just want to give her a strong foundation, so she can navigate this crazy world by being a strong and beautiful little girl.”
