Congratulations are in order for Juelz Santana and Kimbella!
During the reunion special for "Love & Hip Hop: New York," which aired on Monday (March 11), the reality TV star revealed that she is pregnant and will be welcoming her third child with the Dipset veteran. The couple share Juelz Santana James, 8; and Bella Monroe James, 6, as well as co-parent Santana's son from a prior relationship, LaRon Louis James Jr., 15.
During the televised broadcast, reunion host Nina Parker commented on how beautiful Kimbella looked. Right on cue, the reality TV star then stood up grinning from ear-to-ear and made the announcement that she's expecting. Borrowing a page from Beyoncé's playbook, Kimbella happily rubbed her belly to share the news, similar to how the superstar singer made her big reveal at the 2011 MTV VMAs.
Soon thereafter, Kimbella shared a photo on Instagram, excitedly confirming the news to her followers. "Super comfy in my @fashionnova fit at 6 months pregnant!," she wrote. "I couldn't wait to share with you guys!!"
The news signifies another example of how the Santana family is being dealt both lessons and blessings at this point in time. As previously reported, the Dipset rapper recently began his 27-month prison sentence. Last year, Santana turned himself after a March 2018 incident at Newark airport made national headlines, eventually pleading guilty to possessing a firearm as a convicted felon and carrying a weapon. He is currently serving his time at FCI Petersburg Medium in Hopewell, Virginia.
Earlier this year, the couple tied the knot in a private ceremony attended by friends and family. Their wedding took place a couple months after Santana popped the big question during a Diplomats reunion show celebrating the legendary group's first album in 14 years, Diplomatic Ties.
Together, the couple has starred on several seasons of "Love & Hip Hop: New York." The pair has notably been transparent about the challenges they've worked to overcome during their decade together, including discussing how they are preparing to get through this next chapter together as a family.
Congrats to Kimbella and Juelz Santana on the news that they are expecting their third child together!
