Vanessa Simons, daughter of veteran rapper and now minister Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons, is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend, Mike Wayans.
Vanessa is already five months gone, and the Run’s House star posted pictures of her sonogram on Instagram as well as the baby’s sex.
“We are both very excited about the birth of our first child,” Vanessa told Us Weekly. “We totally were expecting it to be [a] boy all along but got very surprised when we found out it was indeed a girl. I immediately went out and brought a cute [little] outfit for her right after the appointment.”
Mike and Vanessa have been dating for eight years. They will be welcoming their little girl in Feb. 2014.
Vanessa explained that she was nervous to tell her dad about her big news. She told Us Weekly:
I was so nervous telling my dad at first being that I’m not married YET but he was very excited and is supportive 100 percent. His concern is just that I’m happy. Both families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new baby girl. She’s coming into two huge families waiting to give her lots of love.
Rev Run seemed to have no problems, and showed his delight on Twitter:
So happy!!! Congrats to my Daughter Vanessa & Mike Wayans —> http://t.co/22oTR4n2UM
