The baby girl was born on Valentine’s Day Friday, February 14, 2014.
It was Vanessa’s uncle, Danny Simmons, who made the announcement on his Facebook page writing, “My brand spanking new grand niece is names Ava Marie Jean Wayans.”
Last month, the couple held their lavished baby shower in Hollywood, attended by their closest friends and famous family members (See HERE).
Of the festivities she told Essence.com, “I was so overwhelmed with excitement that I actually started having contractions at the end of the shower.”
“Luckily, it was just false labor. My little girl has quite a sense of humor already.”
Simmons announced her pregnancy on Instagram, last year, when she shared a photo of her sonogram while also revealing that she would be expecting a baby girl (See HERE).
Simmons also shared her thoughts on being nervous to tell her famous dad, Reverend Run, about her pregnancy (See HERE). Although she and Mike have dated for quite some time, they still aren’t married.
“But my dad was actually really excited because this is the first grandchild for my family,” she again told Essence.com.
On whether she and Mike are making plans to get married she says, “Of course we talk about that and it’s looking good,” says Simmons. “But I don’t want to be a pregnant bride. I wanna have a beautiful wedding, hopefully a destination wedding where I can show off my figure in a beautiful long flowing dress.”
Congratulations to Mike and Vanessa.
