Ray J stopped by the daytime talk show The Real with some big news.
“Let me just tell you something about love,” the singer told the hosts. “Love is on my mind. Love is in my heart. Princess and I are expecting.”
That’s right. After their well-documented struggles with fertility, the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood stars are expecting their first child. Princess followed up Ray J’s jaw-dropping announcement with a confirmation and photo of her burgeoning baby bump.
The reality star said she and Ray kept their news a secret for quite a while because they were superstitious about announcing the pregnancy too early.
“It’s such a blessing from God to be able to carry our child,” she wrote on her Instagram. “We kept this to ourselves until after the first trimester because it’s bad luck to announce too early. But we’re so proud to share this journey with you guys. Thank you for all of the love and prayers.“
The couple struggled to conceive a child, something the TV cameras that follow them couldn’t help but highlight. As Princess grew apart from her own family, she felt the need to start a new one. It was tough-going for the pair, with repeated failed attempts at conception. However, if Princess’ bump is to be believed, this is the real deal and the couple finally have a bun in the oven.
Drama has followed the pair from the start. Shortly after their wedding rumors circulated that the notoriously doggish Ray J was stepping out on his new bride. However, Ray put all the doubts to bed in an interview with People where he revealed that he’d given up on the swinging bachelor lifestyle and drinking alcohol.
“The main thing for me is just her being happy. I had my fun and I survived it. A lot of people don’t survive. They get caught up in it.” He said. “There were so many people pulling us. Now I don’t really think about sex and groupies. I used to turn up all day and love it and own it.”
“I decided to just change up for her and it’s been great,” he said of the decision to lay off the sauce. “It’s been a 360-degree turnaround without the alcohol. I changed up my environment and started to become the person that I felt was the best me I could be.”

Ray J’s turn toward monogamy is even more surprising when you consider the sex Princess claims they’re having. The reality star said that she’s very boring in the bedroom.
“I’m so conservative when it comes to having sex with my husband,” she said on another episode of The Real. “We have to be in the bed, it has to be night time, the lights have to be off. If the fan is on I’m like ‘Can you cut the fan off?’ If there’s a light on in the house I’m like ‘Can you cut the light off?’ Because it’s just like it takes the focus away. You gotta be focused.”
