When news broke that Vanessa Simmons was pregnant there was a collective social media gasp. The announcement was definitely surprising, but what folks really wanted to know was how did Rev Run react when he found out his baby girl had a bun in the oven.
Essence magazine spoke to the oldest Simmons sister and she dished on her dad’s reaction, wedding plans and baby names.
On getting her father’s encouragement despite being pregnant out of wedlock:
“There’s this whole idea of first comes the marriage then the baby carriage so I was so nervous,” she tells ESSENCE.com. “But my dad was actually really excited because this is the first grandchild for my family…Of course he wants us to get married, but for now he was like, ‘We’re gonna figure this out. Just be happy and have a healthy pregnancy. I’m behind you a hundred percent.'”
On pregnancy cravings:
“Anything I see I want,” she says before confessing her current Slurpee addiction. “Every time my mom calls me she asks, ‘Where’s Mike?’ and I’m like, ‘He’s at 7-11,'” she says. “The cherry-flavored Slurpee is my weakness. So is the Jamba Juice Mango-a-go-go smoothie.”
On baby names:
They thought they were having a boy so they collected names until a sonogram revealed it was a little girl. “Now I’m stumped thinking of little girl names,” says the happy mom-to-be. “But I’m excited because little girl clothes are amazing and I’m the girliest girl ever!”
