Da Brat is pregnant.

The rapper, 48, is expecting her first child with wife Jesseca Harris-Dupart, 41, the pair announced in People, sharing multiple photos form their gangster-themed pregnancy photoshoot with her growing baby bump on display. 

While Harris-Dupart is already a mother to three children, Da Brat told the outlet she “never thought I was going to have kids.”

“I just thought it wasn’t in the cards for me. I’ve had a great career, a full life. I felt like, because I didn’t get pregnant earlier on, then it just wasn’t going to happen for me,” she shared. 

However, Da Brat explained that she “started looking at life so differently” when she met the CEO of Kaleidoscope Hair Products.

“I was like, I want a little me with you,” she said. “Something special from the both of us that we can share and raise and love unconditionally.”

The baby news comes after what the rapper described as “quite a journey…there’s a lot of stuff we learned about women over the age of 40.”

Part of that journey included a heart-wrenching miscarriage.

“I had never been so excited about something that I didn’t even know I wanted. I fell in love with the idea and then it was all snatched away from me,” Da Brat said. “Luckily, we still had quite a few of her eggs left.”

Now at 18 weeks pregnant, she says, “It’s just a blessing. I’m excited!”
