Vanessa Simmons spoke to Essence about telling her dad, Rev Run that she was pregnant. 

“But my dad was actually really excited because this is the first grandchild for my family.

“I think somewhere deep inside he was kinda like, ‘When am I going to experience that part of life?' Of course he 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 a hundred percent,’” Vanessa Simmons told

Congrats to Vanessa and Rev Run!
