The proud parents took to Instagram to share pics of their little baby.
“A little princess is on the way”, said Vanessa Simmons, who is currently five months pregnant. Her little bundle of joy is reportedly due on February 13.
“Our families are super excited,” said Simmons, whose father is Rev. Run of Run D.M.C. “Our baby is coming into two big families with lots of love and lots of joy. This is my family’s first grandchild, so everybody can’t wait for her arrival,” said Rev. Run, whose real name is Joseph Simmons.
Mike Wayans is the son of actor and funny man Damon Wayans.
Vanessa’s sister, Angela Simmons, commented on the Instagram pic about how excited she is to be an aunty.
Vanessa Simmons is an aspiring actress who had a role on Guiding Light as well and also works with her sister on the “Pastry” shoe brand.
In an interview for Rolling Out magazine, Angela Simmons said she and her sister learned about business from uncle Russell Simmons and their dad:
They lead by example. We sit back and watch what they do. Overall, they teach us how to make smart business decisions. I’m only 23 and I’m still learning. It’s impossible to know everything there is within the next couple of years. I just watch them. My uncle is such a stern businessman and I want to be just like that.
Vanessa added that, “Growing up around them, you take notes. We’re really still learning. The company started with four shoes and now it’s a $70 million company. If there is a big decision, I call my dad or uncle for advice.”
