Angela Simmons Welcomes First Child, a Son

angela-simmons

Congratulations to Growing Up Hip Hop star Angela Simmons on the birth of her first child, a baby boy.

Simmons came into the public spotlight for the first time when on the hit MTV show, Run’s House, about her dad Run D.M.C.’s Rev Run and his family. To announce the news, she shared a tender photo of herself holding her newborn on her Instagram account on September 29.

 

“The best part of life has just begun #Motherhood #ImSoInLove,” she captioned the photo. Earlier, there were many reports that she had given birth but to squash the rumors and perhaps buy her private time with her newborn, she posted a photo of herself still pregnant.

Simmons models and owns a lifestyle boutique and is co-designer on the  faux fur line called Foofi & Bella. She has never publicly said who her fiance and father of her baby is but the streets have ideas. Congrats!

The best part of life has just begun ❤️????? #Motherhood #ImSoInLove

Run’s House’ Vanessa Simmons Instagrams Belly photo

Instagram
Actress and reality TV star Vanessa Simmons  shared a photo of herself and her blossoming belly to her Instagram fans recently.
“First lunch meeting of 2013,” the MTV star from Run’s House  and Daddy’s Girls captioned the photo.
Simmons’ dad is Hip Hop legend Rev Run and uncle is business mogul Russell Simmons. She announced in September 2013 that she and  boyfriend Mike Wayans, son of veteran TV actor Damon Wayans are expecting their first child together.
She’d been MIA for months due to extreme morning sickness. She told Essence.com that cherry-flavored Slurpees are her weakness.
“Every time my mom calls me she asks, ‘Where’s Mike?’ and I’m like, ‘He’s at 7-Eleven,” she confessed.
Simmons also noted that she’s not rushing down the aisle just yet.
“I don’t want to be a pregnant bride,” she told the site. “I wanna have a beautiful wedding, hopefully a destination wedding where I can show off my figure in a beautiful long flowing dress.”
