Vanessa’s uncle is Russell Simmons and Mike’s father is Damon Wayans. According to People – Vanessa hesitated telling the family when announcing her pregnancy.
She said in October, “There’s this whole idea of first comes the marriage then the baby carriage so I was so nervous.”
She added, “Of course [my dad] 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 100 percent.”
In another interview with Essence – she shared that after her baby shower – held in January – she felt contractions.
“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.”
