Vanessa Simmons welcomed her baby daughter, Ava Marie Jean, on the night before Valentine’s Day. Now, the new mom has taken to Instagram to show off the first photos of her darling baby girl.

This is the first child for Rev. Run’s daughter, 30, and her boyfriend Mike Wayans, 28, (son of Damon Wayans). On February 26, Vanessa posted a photo of herself having some quality mother-daughter time with little Ava Marie. The two are snuggled up in a big armchair, and a beaming Vanessa is feeding the peaceful baby girl her bottle.

MommyMode #nosleep #nomakeup” she wrote. Soon after, she followed up with a photo of her smiling face, alongside a message to all her fans. “Thanks to everyone for all the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it's appreciated,” she said.

Vannessa also shared a photo of her sleeping beauty’s tiny baby crib. Decorated in pink blankets and a white ruffled covering, Ava Marie’s crib looks fit for a princess.

The new mom starred in her family’s MTV reality series, Run’s House, which aired for six seasons, followed by the spin-off show Daddy’s Girls. Her father, whose real name is Joseph Lloyd Simmons, is one of the founding members of hip hop group Run-D.M.C. Too bad their show’s not still on; we would have loved to see Ava Marie make her TV debut!
