Are congratulations in order for Love & Hip Hop: New York stars Remy Ma and Papoose? Over the last few months, the "Back on My Bullls–t" rapper made it sound like the longtime couple — who tied the knot in 2008 — are expecting their first child together.
It all started back in December when Pap shared this photo of a sign pointing to an ultrasound room, captioned, "#blacklove How we started our day!" He followed it up with a photo of himself and Remy doing pottery, captioned, "Hand made these bowls, for our unborn child. #pottery #blacklove." It sounds like they have a big reason to celebrate!
Fans of the VH1 reality series will recall that the "Conceited" songstress suffered a miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, and was told that she wouldn't be able to conceive children naturally. However, she and Pap remained hopeful they would expand their blended family — and ultimately decided to take the IVF route.
"I chose to speak about it because at first, I didn't want to talk about it — I was like, 'I don't think this is something I want to put out there,'" she exclusively told In Touch about her struggles to conceive. "But once I started talking to other women, it became apparent to me that this was something that was important to me and that I felt like I needed to get out there because so many women go through it and they don't talk about it."
The hip-hop moguls also recently moved down to North Carolina to gear up for this exciting time in their lives. Remy has a son from a previous relationship, while Papoose is also the father of three kids. When asked if they would have their kids move down to help with the new baby, she playfully replied, "They're all tainted. Just let them all go and be 17 and 21 and let's just start over. That's why I'm trying to eat everything organic — I'm like, 'I don't want anything that might alter the kid that way that it's going to be.'"
She continued, "It also gives us a chance to just be us — we never really got to have children they way we wanted. We both had kids when we were really, really young, so to be in the same home — a home that we own — and we're married — and this is something that we actually planned and had to pay for to happen. We were mapping everything out, and then I get to interact with my family and just tie our families in together and do stuff like my store, and stuff I can keep busy with when I'm not going to be able to do the music as much as I was."
