Daddy’s little girl Vanessa Simmons shocked the world earlier this week when she revealed that her and  boyfriend Mike Wayans (Damon Wayans’ son) are expecting a little girl. Of course the first thought of many was, the Reverends daughter is having a baby out of wedlock. In an exclusive chat with Essence.com, Vanessa shares how her dad reacted to the big news:

“There’s this whole idea of first comes the marriage then the baby carriage so I was so nervous, but my dad was actually really excited because this is the first grandchild for my family. I think somewhere deep inside he was kinda like, ‘When am I going to experience that part of life?’ Of course he 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 a hundred percent.’”

Simmons and Wayans do plan on tying the knot eventually:

“Of course we talk about that and it’s looking good, 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.”

The Pastry CEO has been in “hibernation” for the past three months because of severe morning sickness. When asked about cravings she said they are triggered by food blogs:

“Anything I see I want. Every time my mom calls me she asks, ‘Where’s Mike?’ and I’m like, ‘He’s at 7-Eleven,’” she says. “The cherry-flavored Slurpee is my weakness. So is the Jamba Juice Mango-a-go-go smoothie.”

On finding a name for the Princess to be after thinking it would be a boy:

“Now I’m stumped thinking of little girl names, but I’m excited because little girl clothes are amazing and I’m the girliest girl ever!”

 

Congrats to the Simmons and the Wayans Family!
