R&B Singer and R&B Divas: Atlanta reality TV star Keke Wyatt is expecting baby number 10!
The Southern beauty announced the news on her Instagram account on Monday.
“My husband Zackariah Darring and I are so happy to announce that we are expecting our new bundle of joy!” she captioned a slide show featuring a series of maternity portraits starting with one of her in a floral decorated bathtub wearing a lace body suit, another of her in a blue and white sequinned gown and a pink lace dress.
“We are excited to welcome the 10th addition to our beautiful family,” then plugged her soon-to-be-released YouTube series about her life called The Keke Show.
“You will see me balancing wife, mommy and artist!!! Trust me… it’s never a dull moment with my family. Love ya sugars.”
This is the first child for Wyatt and Darring.
Wyatt has eight children with ex-husband Michael Ford and another child from her previous marriage to Rahmat Morton.
Wyatt and Morton got married when the singer was 18-years old and divorced in 2009.
TV One‘s R&B Divas: Atlanta alum Keke Wyatt is 8 months pregnant and recently shared on Instagram that her husband of 7 years, Michael Ford, wants a divorce. The singer, who has a phenomenal voice (I heard her in person) revealed the news in a tearful video re-posted on gossip site, Shaderoom.
“You want to know something, America? When you 8 months pregnant and you got a child sick, in and out of the hospital, and your husband got the nerve to tell you that he wants a divorce,” she says in the video. “Because… he says that you’re an emotional wreck. He says that from the very beginning you never trusted me and all that kind of stuff. Telling other people, other women that we getting a divorce and if she calls…like, what?! I’m so done with Michael Jamar. Y’all can have him and roast his ass. I don’t care.”
Afterwards, Twitter certainly roasted Michael Jamar (Ford), per a run down of the dragging by VH1.com.
Recently, Wyatt revealed that one of her children is battling cancer and she shaved all of her hair off in support of that child, Essence reports.
The couple had also recently babymooned in Hawaii in advance of the arrival of their fourth child together. Wyatt has three children from a previous marriage to her ex husband and road manager, Rahmat Morton. Ford has a child from a previous relationship and Wyatt suffered a still born at the end of her marriage with Morton.
She is pregnant for the 8th time though (including her still born baby) but if you count her step child, she is mom 9 x over!
She joins a list of celebrity women who broke up with her partners before the baby was born. This list includes Heidi Klum, Christina Milian, Kelis, Alexis Knapp, Mel B and January Jones.
WE TV Marriage Bootcamp star KeKe Wyatt is expecting her 9th child, her 5th one with her manager husband Michael Jamar.
The singer, who is also an alum of the short-lived TV One reality TV show R&B Divas: Atlanta, announced the news via a statement from her rep.
“My family is excited. We come from big families where I’m from,” she stated. “Everyone knows my work doesn’t stop when I’m pregnant so I’m excited to continue performing and traveling around the world.”
This isn’t too surprising news. Wyatt told Wendy Williams last November that she and her husband welcome a big and constantly growing family.
The singing powerhouse is only 35 years old. She was married at age 18 and her kids range in age from 1 to 16. She has 4 daughters; Her oldest four children are with ex husband Rahmat Morton.
“I thought I was done three kids ago,” she told Williams. “So I’m not fixed, he’s not fixed, so you never know!” she added, referencing the fact that she and her husband didn’t have a vasectomy or tubal ligation to prevent future pregnancies.
During that episode, Wyatt also opened up about revealing on Marriage Boot Camp that she had a full term still birth. She told Williams her daughter’s heart just stopped beating and it was difficult for her to face her children to let them know she wouldn’t be bringing home the sibling they saw grow in her tummy. Sad.
Wyatt will be featured in the April 8 edition of the Centric TV Show, Being.
Congrats on the impending arrival.
