Remy Ma is officially a mama!
The rapper announced the birth of her and husband Papoose‘s first child together via Instagram on Friday evening. And drumroll, please… it’s a girl!
“The Golden Child is here!!!” Remy captioned her announcement. “Thank you @papoosepapoose for making me the the happiest wife in the planet. #BlackLove #RemAndPap #BabyMackie #ShesMADDDDcute.”
Just hours before their bundle of joy’s arrival, Papoose told his social media followers that Remy was experiencing a “tough labor.” He asked fans for their prayers, writing, “My wife is still fighting through it. She’s a warrior!”
The hip-hop stars announced Remy’s pregnancy during their vow renewal ceremony this past July. A year prior, Remy had revealed she suffered a miscarriage, a devastating experience she documented on Love & Hip Hop.
Both Remy and Papoose have children from previous relationships. The “All the Way Up” songstress has an 18-year-old son named Jayson while Papoose has three kids of his own.
In March 2016, the couple formally tied the knot during a lavish wedding ceremony. Less than two years before, Remy completed a 6-year prison sentence for shooting a female acquaintance outside a New York City nightclub.
And throughout her road to baby, the 38-year-old kept fans up to date with endless baby bump photos.
“Almost done baking,” she captioned one snapshot days before going into labor.
Congratulations to Remy and Papoose!
