Congratulations are in order for Vanessa Simmons and Mike Wayans, the two are officially parents of a healthy baby girl.
HipHollywood reported last week that Simmons was possibly in labor, and it’s finally been confirmed that Rev Run’s daughter did indeed give birth to her first child on Thursday night. According to Simmon’s rep, the couple named their daughter Ava Marie Jean Wayans.
This is Wayans and Vanessa’s first child together and Ava Marie is Rev Run’s first grandchild. We are sure he’s a happy pop.
While the couple has stayed mum on social media about the birth of their daughter, we do know the family is happier than ever. The night Vanessa gave birth, HipHollywood caught up with Damien Dante Wayans, the cousin of Mike Wayans, who revealed that his cousin-in-law is beautiful and glowing. “We look forward to a new addition to the family. Them Wayan’s keep on poppin em out … Another dependent, here they come,” Damien joked.
And while some probably assume baby Ava will grow up to be another comedian, another Wayans is hoping for something different. We talked with Daphne Wayans, the ex-wife of Keenan Ivory Wayans, last month and she revealed that she is hopes the baby will be in the music industry. “The thousanth Wayans,” she said. “Maybe she will be someone in hip hop.”
