Jessica Dime had her baby, and she’s such a cutie! The mom-of-one shared a short video of her newest family member, which doubled as an Instagram post and birthing announcement.
Fans were shocked to learn that the star’s baby was already born and settled in at home… especially because no one knew she had gone into labor. Scroll to the end of this article to see the video!
“If I am pregnant…”
After getting engaged to NBA player Shawne Williams in 2017, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Jessica Dime got pregnant with her first child. She shared the news with the cameras on an April episode of LHHATL (which was filmed about nine months ago).
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 fiance. “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 Shawne.
“She’s the only one I can say changed for the better.. she did a whole 360 and really grew up.. I’m so happy for her,” a fan wrote on Instagram. “They’re so cute I’m happy for her!!!!” added another.
“Dime has definitely had the best character development in the show. She grew on a lot of people and showed her maturity. I really love her and so happy for her and her little family,” commented an Instagram user.
Soon afterwards, the then-parents-to-be celebrated their new edition with a lavish baby shower brunch. The pink undertones had everyone expecting a baby girl from the couple, though they didn’t specifically said so.
Featuring a cake topped with a gold crown, pink roses and crown-decorated donuts, Jessica and Shawne clearly spared no expense for their baby. The parents wore matching white outfits, with Jessica clad in a satin, spaghetti strap dress that showed off her growing bump.
Beforehand, fans were looking for her pregnant belly. Though Jessica and Shawne took a pregnancy test on a episode of LHHATL, that footage was filmed some time last year (2017). This means that, at the time, the future mom should have been about seven months into her pregnancy.
However, her various social media profiles didn’t reflect that of a mommy-to-be. With no baby bump in sight, fans had begun to wonder if she was still pregnant. After these photos though, there was no doubt.
The star posted shots from a sweet maternity shoot early April 9. Wearing nude undergarments, the “Hustle” artist was covered in flowers whole holding her belly.
“I think I’m tearing up!# I’m so happy for her!She is beautiful!#CONGRATS,” wrote a fan on Instagram. “CONGRATS SWEETIE!! God bless you and that bundle of joy,” commented another.
One Instagram user posted, “Bad b***h got a luhh queen coming.”
