Congratulations are in order for Juelz Santana and his wife Kimbella Vanderhee. The married couple revealed in the Monday, March 11 reunion episode of “Love & Hip Hop: New York” that they are expecting their third child together.
During the special, host Nina Parker suspected something was up when she noticed how Kimbella was glowing. In response to this, Kimbella pulled a Beyonce Knowles and unbuttoned her blazer before rubbing her belly in front of the audience. “She decided to stop taking birth control, and you know me – my [inaudible] were ready to go!” Juelz said. “Know what I mean?”
Kimbella then revealed that they are having a baby boy as saying, “He is popping!”
Following the airing of the reunion special, Kimbella took to Instagram to debut her growing baby bump, revealing that she is currently six-months pregnant. “Super comfy in my @fashionnova fit at 6 months pregnant!

The couple is parents to eight-year-old son Juelz Jr. and six-year-old daughter Bella.
While the pregnancy news is surely delightful for them, it’s somewhat bittersweet since Juelz will likely be missing the birth of his child. He is currently serving his time in prison after he was sentenced to 27 months in prison for trying to bring a loaded gun onto a plane at Newark Airport last spring.
Kimbella and Juelz tied the knot in a private ceremony in New Jersey on January 10 after ten years of dating. Guests at the nuptials included Lil’ Kim, Joe Budden, Remy Ma and husband Papoose as well as Maino. The “There It Go” rapper, whose real name is LaRon James, proposed to Kimbella last November.
