When I found out I was pregnant, I was absolutely shocked,” Jackson told People Tuesday. “I was in the emergency room because I felt awful and had no idea what was wrong.

They came back and told me all my symptoms were from pregnancy and that I was pregnant. I was totally shocked.”

the pregnancy was a shock, Jackson shared with the publication that she’s “always” wanted to be a mom.

“I’ve always felt like that’s my purpose in life — to recreate some little Shawnieces in life,” Jackson said. “I think it’s the greatest gift a woman can have. Life is a beautiful thing!”
