Keisha Castle-Hughes Juggles Acting and Motherhood After Teen Pregnancy

When Keisha Castle-Hughes became pregnant at 16, it caused a public outcry. But now the scandal has died down, Keisha can concentrate on her most important role: that of mom to 22-month-old Felicity-Amore.

The energetic toddler is definitely keeping her actress mom on her toes!

“She’s not shy … Mum says it’s payback,” Keisha told the LA Times.

Keisha is in town to recharge her acting career, and her fiance Brad Hull is along for the ride. The couple became engaged in December 2007, but they have no immediate plants to tie the knot.

“As far as I’m concerned, we’re life partners,” Keisha, who will be 19 this month, said.

Brad’s flexible schedule as a plasterer allows him to care for Felicity, which means Keisha has more time to dedicate to her craft. If they need to, the actress says she’ll move to America, but she doesn’t sound too keen to leave home just yet!

“I’d love to stay in New Zealand and work from there, but it’s really difficult to commute 12 hours with a 2-year-old.”

I can only imagine!
