Da Brat famously rapped that she was here to “represent for the rest of the family,” and now her family is growing.
The singer, who is 48 years old, announced on Tuesday that she is expecting her first child.
The “Funkdafied” rapper told People magazine, “I never thought I would have kids.” “I just thought that it wasn’t in the cards for me. I’ve had a great life and career. I thought that since I hadn’t gotten pregnant sooner, it just wasn’t going to happen for me.”
Da Brat got married to Jesseca “Judy” Harris-Dupart, who has three kids, a year ago.
Harris-Dupart told the publication that Da Brat had to be persuaded to carry their newest family member.
“At first, there was a little tug-of-war, but I thought she should have the experience,” Harris-Dupart said. “She’s very caring.”
People say that before an embryo transfer procedure, Da Brat had surgery to remove fibroids and polyps. She also lost a pregnancy before she got pregnant again.
