The 38-year-old rapper celebrated 10 years of marriage with husband Papoose – whose real name is Shamele Mackie – by renewing her vows over the weekend and revealed on Instagram that it was a double celebration as they are also expecting their first child together. In a video shared on Instagram, she said: “Although we told you guys that we were renewing our vows, which we are, we also wanted y’all out here when we told you guys…”
40-year-old rapper Papoose, who has three kids from a past relationship, continued: “We having a baby” while rubbing Remy’s stomach. Remy, wearing a stunning pink and white lace embellished gown, wrote alongside the post: “Oh yea…& then this happened” with a winky face emoji. The American artist – whose real name is Reminisce Mackie – is 16 weeks pregnant and due in December, but explained she’d been trying to conceive for some time. She posted: “been eating right, working out, and preparing for this for almost a year. We are so happy; thank you to everyone that prayed for us and sent blessings our way.” The ‘Wake Me Up’ hitmaker had a difficult first trimester with morning sickness but she’s now feeling better.
She continued: “been super sick, lost an extra 7 pounds but I’m soo much better now. “And a special thank you to everyone who helped me pull this day together in 72hours”
The couple married over the phone back in 2008 while Remy – who has 18-year-old son Jayson from a previous relationship – was incarcerated in New York state prison and held a proper ceremony when she was released in 2016. Papoose wrote in an Instagram post: “Our marriage has been the best 10 years of my life! Needed to reassure her that I still worship the ground she walks on. “I would advise all married couples to do it! It’s a reminder of the obligations, loyalty, love & respect u owe to your partner.”
