Rapper Da Brat and his wife Jesseca Harris-Dupart, already stepparent to three children from a previous relationship, are expecting their first child together. Last year the couple tied the knot in Georgia with an exclusive photo shoot for People magazine to announce their pregnancy.
Harris-Dupart, 48, had doubts about having children until her new husband changed her mind. Despite major health complications that arise during pregnancy, she managed to carry the pregnancy through to its completion.
Jesseca "Judy" Harris-Dupart, a hair care mogul who has three kids from an earlier relationship, and her husband are expanding their family. They revealed the news exclusively to PEOPLE magazine this week's issue.
About one year ago, Jesseca and her husband took their future plans into their own hands by getting married and starting a family. Although they already had stepparents to three of Jesseca's children, this will be Da Brat's first child.
She and her wife have been candid about their fertility journey, which involved multiple medical procedures and a devastating miscarriage.
It was also an ideal chance for the rapper to show off her growing baby bump in a gangsta-themed maternity shoot captured by Derek Blanks (yes, that's his real name).
In an interview with People, she and her wife's love for each other led them to consider expanding their family. After talking about it for about a year, the couple was finally ready to become parents.
The rapper said she didn't think she'd ever have children until she met her wife Judy. After their two year wedding celebration on Da Brat Loves Judy reality show, it's hard not to admire the couple's bravery in sharing their story with others who may be struggling with infertility or are on their own fertility journey - we can't wait for more exciting updates from you, Da Brat!

Da Brat and Jesseca "Judy" Harris-Dupart have been trying to conceive since their nuptials in February 2022.
In their new interview with People, the couple opened up about their challenging fertility journey to become parents. After undergoing multiple procedures to remove fibroids and polyps before embryo transfer, including surgery to remove one from each, miscarriage was unfortunately also part of it - but now "Funkdafied" rapper is delighted to share that she's 18 weeks pregnant and expecting her first child with her wife!
According to the couple, their love was what brought them together and inspired them to start a family. Although it was an ambitious decision, both were reluctant initially to assume parenting responsibilities.
After deliberating, they decided it was time for them to take the leap. That is when they chose to use an anonymous sperm donor for their procedure.
Sherri Shepherd and her companions were thrilled to surprise Sherri Shepherd with a shirt reading, "I'm going to be an auntie!" As the talk show host cried with joy as they said goodbye, the joyous couple expressed how excited she was about becoming aunts.

On Tuesday, Da Brat and her wife Jesseca "Judy" Harris-Dupart announced they are expecting their first child. The couple, who tied the knot on February 2, 2022, told People they had begun planning for an expanding their family even before their nuptials.
Though she had never considered becoming a mom before meeting her wife, Jesseca persuaded her to do so when they started dating. With three children from previous relationships, Jesseca convinced her that experiencing motherhood at least once was something important in life.
Yet their journey to motherhood was not without its difficulties. Before they could place their embryos into Harris-Dupart's womb, she needed to remove fibroids and polyps from her uterus; additionally, the couple experienced miscarriage.
Thankfully, the couple had an anonymous donor for their embryos and a Black-owned boutique fertility center to assist them along the way. Despite all of their health issues, they managed to have a successful pregnancy despite all obstacles.

The couple is thrilled to become parents and thankful for all the love from their fans. They're especially appreciative of all the nurses at Hope Fertility for all of their hard work, hoping their journey will inspire others to consider motherhood too. Most importantly, though, their love hasn't faded as they prepare to bring a new life into the world.
