Things are going great for thirty-eight-year-old Remy Ma now, but not too long ago it was quite the opposite. The rapper spent six years in prison for shooting another woman outside a New York City nightclub. Less than two years later she married Papoose in an elegant, over the top wedding ceremony. The couple renewed their vows this past July, and at that time they also announced their forthcoming child.
Fans followed the baby bump on Instagram, where Remy Ma posted a stream of photos documenting its progress. The last photo her devotees saw before Remy went into labor was a full bump captioned, “Almost done baking!” Followers even got a minute by minute from Papoose, who posted about Remy’s labor, asking for prayers and support when things got difficult in the delivery room. After the birth was complete, Remy posted that “The Golden Child is here!!!”
This isn’t either of the rappers’ first time becoming a parent, as Remy Ma has an eighteen-year-old named Jayson and Papoose fathered three children in a previous relationship. Sadly, Remy also suffered a tragic miscarriage a year before getting pregnant with her newly born daughter.
Some members of the public have criticized the couple for overposting during the pregnancy. But Papoose shuts it down, saying he’d prefer that Remy post bump photos daily, although she doesn’t even go to that much of an extreme. But the fact is, Remy has proved that she can look amazing through all stages of pregnancy, and now we’re excited to see how fly she looks in the early newborn days!
Congratulations to these two new parents on their adorable bundle of joy! We wish them the best in raising their family.
