Vanessa Simmons is pregnant! The 30-year-old daughter of Rev Run (from Run D.M.C.) and her beau, Mike Wayans, are having a baby. On Oct. 2, Simmons made the official announcement on her Instagram account, sharing that she was expecting a baby girl. According to MSN, she's already about 5 months along.
"We are both very excited about the birth of our first child. 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," Vanessa told Us Weekly (via MSN).
Vanessa Simmons told her dad she was pregnant but she admits that wasn't easy. Obviously her dad is a religious man -- a man of great faith -- but he actually took the news really well. In fact, Vanessa said that her dad is super excited and he's totally supportive.
"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," Vanessa added.
Will Vanessa Simmons and Mike Wayans have some other exciting news soon (like an engagement)? It certainly sounds that way. Perhaps that won't officially come until after the baby arrives -- some time in the early new year.
