Actor Mike Wayans is known for his love for comedy, and it’s no secret he’s always one for a good laugh. But these days, he has something quite meaningful to smile about. Mike Wayans and his girlfriend, Vanessa Simmons, announced that they’re expecting their first child. But, the surprise came when Simmons revealed their knowledge of the baby’s gender – a little girl. She’s actually already at the five month mark.
The proud mother-to-be officially shared their wonderful announcement with the world on Instagram. She posted a picture of the little girl’s sonogram picture with the caption, “a little princess on the way.” In an exclusive interview with US Magazine, Simmons shared her anticipation in regards to the birth of their first child. “We are both very excited about the birth of our first child. We totally were expecting it to be (a) boy all along but got very surprised when we found out it was indeed a girl. I immediately went out and brought a cute (little) outfit for her right after the appointment.” Simmons also went on to admit her fears of sharing the news with her father, former Run D.M.C. rapper, Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons. “I was so nervous telling my dad at first being that I’m not married YET but he was very excited and is supportive 100 percent. His concern is just that I’m happy. Both families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new baby girl. She’s coming into two huge families waiting to give her lots of love.” Wayans and Simmons’ little bundle of joy is tentatively expected to arrive February 13, 2014.
