Vanessa Simmons, eldest daughter of Rev Run, informally announced her pregnancy on Instagram yesterday when she posted a photo of her sonogram with the caption ” a little princess on the way”! This will be the first child for the 30-year old actress and also the first grandchild for her iconic father.
Although there is no official word on who the father is, Global Grind is reporting that it is her longtime boyfriend Mike Wayans, son of Damon Wayans. Given that Global Grind is run by Vanessa’s uncle Russell Simmons, I think it’s safe to say the information is accurate. They shared that Vanessa is about 5 months along and released a statement from the mommy-to-be:
“Our families are super excited. Our baby is coming into two big families with lots of love and lots of joy. This is my family’s first grandchild, so everybody can’t wait for her arrival.”
That baby is going to be one well-connected little girl given her family’s backgrounds. Congratulations to the couple and their families!
