'Shameless' Star Shanola Hampton

"I think having a baby will change the way I love," the actress says.

Shanola Hampton is starting 2014 off with a bang!

Her hit Showtime show Shameless returns for its fourth season January 12. And just 11 days later, she's expecting her first child with husband Daren Dukes.

How will adding motherhood to her resume change everyday life for the 36-year-old Charleston, SC native? "I think having a baby will change the way I love. It will be the most unconditional love I've ever experienced," Hampton explains. "Not sure if it will really change my career, but if it does, I pray it will only enhance it. If the way my marriage has changed during the pregnancy is any indication, I think we'll be closer than ever. We are truly blissful."
