Addressing their wedding guests, the rapper said, “Although we told you guys that we were renewing our vows, which we are, we also wanted y’all out here when we told you guys … ” she trailed off as she handed the microphone to her husband.
“We having a baby!” said Papoose with his hand rubbing his wife’s stomach.

Before finding out she was pregnant and celebrating with friends and family at a ’50s-sock-hop-themed baby shower, the Love & Hip Hop: New York star opened up on the show about suffering a miscarriage after having an ectopic pregnancy in early 2017.
And infertility is not the only struggle the couple has faced. While they have been married for 10 years, they have spent little of that time together, as Remy had been serving jail time.
