After getting engaged to NBA player Shawne Williams in 2017, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Jessica Dime is now pregnant with her first child. She shared the news with the cameras on last night’s episode of LHHATL, which was filmed about seven 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.”
“If I am pregnant…”
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.
“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.
Where’s the bump?
Of course, all good stories have a sliver of the adverse. Though Jessica and Shawne took the test on the episode that aired this week, the episode was filmed some time last year (2017). This means that the future mom should be about seven months into her pregnancy.
However, her various social media profiles don’t reflect that of a mommy-to-be. With no baby bump in sight, fans have begun to wonder if she’s still pregnant.
