*It’s been suspected and rumored about for several weeks, but now we can now officially confirm that Angela Simmons is pregnant with her first child. The reality star and fashionista announced the happy news Friday evening with a photo of her growing baby bump while enjoying a hike in Los Angeles.

“We are overjoyed and super excited to receive a blessing this big! Starting a family was something that I could have only dreamed of,” the daughter of Rev Run captioned the photograph.

This news comes on the heels of Simmons sharing a pic of a beautiful diamond ring on Instagram to announce her engagement. She made that shocking announcement in April. It was shocking because most folks were even aware that she in a committed relationship.

“YES!! I couldn’t be more excited,” she captioned a video showing off the ring. “This is only something I could of only dreamed of. I’m over the moon and feeling so blessed to be able to share my life with the one I truly love. Everything happened in the most perfect way.”

Simmons is reportedly engaged to Sutton Tennyson, who made news recently because of his background. According to Bossip, “the Memphis rapper, but a 35-year-old Atlanta native, is a convicted felon who did time in prison for carrying a concealed gun in 2000. He landed back in prison a few years later on charges of credit card forgery, identity theft, drug possession and police obstruction. He was released in 2010, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections.”

Angela is already a proud aunt to siblings Vanessa and JoJo‘s children. Angela’s older sister welcomed her first child, daughter Ava Marie Jean, on in February 2014 while younger brother JoJo welcomed his first child, Mia KayLee, in February 2016.

Congratulations Angela and Sutton!
