Rev. Run is a grandpa! The 49-year-old star of Run’s House welcomed a granddaughter on Thursday, February 13, according to People.
Rev’s daughter Vanessa Simmons and her boyfriend Mike Wayans (yes, of that Wayans family) are the new parents of a baby girl. Vanessa’s rep confirms to the magazine that little Ava Marie Jean arrived the night before Valentine’s Day.
Vanessa originally hesitated to announce the news she was expecting since she and Mike have yet to tie the knot. “There’s this whole idea of first comes the marriage then the baby carriage so I was so nervous,” she told People last autumn upon telling the world she had a baby on board.
But Vanessa’s family got fully behind her unexpected pregnancy with the 30-year-old telling People, “Of course [my dad] wants us to get married, but for now he was like, ‘We’re gonna figure this out. Just be happy and have a healthy pregnancy. I’m behind you 100 percent.’”
Although we saw a sonogram of the little princess back in September, Vanessa and family have yet to publicly share a photo of Ava. The new mama did, however, share a pic of roses for Valentine’s Day, a preview of the blooms we hope crowded her hospital room.
Congratulations to Vanessa, Mike, and the whole Rev. Run family on their new addition!
