Just a few days into 2018 (Jan. 2), Alexis was rushed to the hospital due to unspecified complications after her water broke. Though the entire ordeal was very scary, the first-time mom stayed strong, updating her fans every step of the way.
“They’re gonna have me in the hospital for a long time and I just pray that everything do good,” the reality television star captioned a photo of herself lying in a hospital bed. “She’s okay, she’s fine.”
Weighing only one pound at birth, baby Alaiya was born on Jan. 4, three months ahead of time, via C-section. The newborn was immediately placed in an incubator in NICU.
Later on, the parents took to Instagram to assure fans that all was well. “[Alaiya] is actually pretty healthy,” Alexis shared on Instagram Live at the time. “It’s scary, she’s so tiny. She’s not fully grown. I wasn’t even at the 30-week mark yet. I was only 24 weeks. Just got to be positive.”
Alexis, 23, and Fetty Wap, 26, were both born prematurely, so they have all the confidence in the world that their baby will pull through. Their instincts are probably right, as the baby girl is showing off her smile for the camera in Alexis’ post on her two month birthday.
This was painted irrelevant when someone reported Skyy to Child Protective Services. She revealed the news on social media herself, writing, “You people are so sick and evil.”
“Who the f**k calls child services on someone who doesn’t even have there baby home yet,” the star began. “Why would y’all try to have them take my daughter from me.”
“Im bust my a** to make sure when she is home i can provide for her,” the mom-of-one continued in her post. “People are so evil i just want to disappear from this s**t.”
“It’s gonna be a baby bam!!”
The Love & Hip Hop family (and extended family) will have plenty babies to look forward to. Hopefully Lil Scrappy and Bambi’s experience bringing a baby into the world is a little easier than Skyy and Fetty’s. Late April, Scrap and Bambi announced that they too are expecting. The couple, who have been married since 2017, kept the exciting news to themselves before confirming it with The Shade Room.
According to TSR, Bambi waited to reveal her pregnancy for health reasons. “She just wanted to be safe prior to announcing because they were both so hurt by the miscarriage,” the outlet reported.
The mommy-to-be is 20 weeks along. While she does not yet know the gender, she does know that the little one is healthy. She posted her “liddo” baby’s heart beat on Instagram, offering fans a sneak peak into her experience as a first time mom.
Fans filled TSR‘s comment section with lots of love for the expecting couple. “Congratulation to @reallilscrappy and @adizthebam, on your new addition [sic] you two are such a beautiful couple we see how The Bam is involve in scrappy daughter life we already know you will be a great mom,” a fan wrote.
“It’s gonna be a baby bam!!” a fan exclaimed.
Also in April of this year… Fans learned that Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Jessica Dime is pregnant with her first child. After weeks of being “nauseous” and “tired,” the rapper said she began to have a “good feeling” she was carrying a baby. So, she took an at-home pregnancy test, sitting on the sofa with Shawne as she waited for the results.
“This test needs to hurry up because I need to know right now,” she told her fiancé. “I think I am. I feel just bloated, I’m just tired, my br**sts just feel sore.”
While the couple waited, they talked about Jessica’s “complicated” relationship with her mother. After revealing that her mom sent her to a juvenile detention center at a young age and “judged” her “like crazy” when she was dancing, the “Hustle” artist said that she didn’t plan on speaking to her mother.
“When it come to my mama… It’s just me dealing with her and her attitude,” Jessica said. “My mama is not finna stress me out, especially if I’m pregnant. But it’s like… I know at this point and time, if I am pregnant, I’m gonna need my mother.”
In response, Shawne joked that the mommy-to-be will need a “village” during her pregnancy. In combination with carrying and preparing for a child, the 32-year-old will be planning a wedding while working on her music career.
Shawne, who “was a first round pick when he joined the league back in 2016” but hasn’t played a professional game in nearly two years, will be busy working throughout the bulk of her pregnancy. According to Jessica, “He had some stumbles, but now he’s making a run to get back in the game.”
“You finna be gone. I’m finna have to finish planning the wedding by myself. I got a lotta music I gotta put out, I got a lotta videos I gotta put out. It’s a lot,” she vented. Before the star could stress too much, Shawne checked the at-home test, only to find that the two are indeed expecting a new edition to their family. “I knew it,” Jessica said smiling, going in to hug her Shawne.
