“I never thought I was going to have kids,” the rapper told People. “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.”

Da Brat shared that her stance on parenthood changed after meeting and falling for Harris-Dupart, whom she married in February 2022.

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

Although Da Brat was convinced she would never carry a child, Harris-Dupart helped change her mind.

“I was like, nothing’s gonna come out of me!” Da Brat said.

“We had a little tug-o-war in the beginning … but I felt like she should have the experience,” Harris-Dupart told People. “She is so nurturing.”

“It’s been quite a journey,” Harris-Dupart said, admitting that “there’s a lot of stuff we learned about women over the age of 40.”

With both having experienced health complications in the past, including a miscarriage, the couple is excited to welcome their little bundle of joy in the next few months.

“It’s just a blessing. I’m excited!” Da Brat, who is currently 18 weeks pregnant, said. “I don’t have any cravings or nausea, but I’m always sleepy. It’s crazy!”

Congratulations to Da Brat and Jesseca!
