Vanessa Simmons revealed recently via her Instagram account that she is pregnant with her first child (the father is her longtime boyfriend Mike Wayans) and the happy couple is excited to be welcoming a baby girl very soon.

Despite the criticism that came with Vanessa’s announcement, her father Rev. Run made it clear that he supports her and Vanessa and Mike plan to tie the knot after the child’s birth. But in the meantime, they basked in their happiness at Vanessa’s baby shower the other night.

Of course Tyrese, Russell Simmons, Rev. Run and some of the Wayans came through like Marlon, Shawn, Damon and Damon Jr.

Check out snaps of the fun night below via Angela and Vanessa’s Instagram accounts:

    Both families look really happy. It’s beautiful to see the media a room of black people simply enjoying each others company, without the negativity & drama. Congrats to them 🙂
