Vanessa Simmons shocked the world when she uploaded a picture of a sonogram to Instagram with the announcement, “It’s a girl.”
If you didn’t know by now, the Run’s House star is expecting her first child with Mike Wayans, the son of Damon Wayans. Now, in an exclusive interview with Essence.com, Vanessa is spilling the beans about what it was like telling her father Rev Run about her pregnancy.
Check it out below.
Vanessa On Telling Rev Run She Was Pregnant:
“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.”
“I think somewhere deep inside he was kinda like, ‘When am I going to experience that part of life?’ 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.'”
Vanessa On Her 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-Eleven,'” she says. “The cherry-flavored Slurpee is my weakness. So is the Jamba Juice Mango-a-go-go smoothie.”
Vanessa on Getting Married To Mike Wayans:
“Of course we talk about that and it’s looking good,” says Simmons. “But I don’t want to be a pregnant bride. I wanna have a beautiful wedding, hopefully a destination wedding where I can show off my figure in a beautiful long flowing dress.”
