Da Baby Bumpin’ Brat and wife Jesseca ‘Judy’ Dupart were all smiles at the star-studded Creed III HBCU Fan event in ATL just days after stirring up swoons with their pregnancy announcement.
The couple broke the news to PEOPLE via exclusive maternity photos of Brat, 48, freely flaunting her baby bump.
“It’s been quite a journey,” said Da Brat who’s 18-weeks pregnant via an “eager entrepreneur” from a cryo bank. “There’s a lot of stuff we learned about women over the age of 40.”
According to the publication, Brat and her wife’s road to motherhood started around the time they said “I do” back on Feb. 2 of last year after Dupart, the CEO of Kaleidoscope Hair Products, said they were “extending their family” in promotion of new hair products.

PEOPLE reports that Brat said kids weren’t ever really a part of the plan before her wife convinced her to carry their child.
“I never thought I was going to have kids,” she said. “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.”
That is, until she met and fell for Harris-Dupart. “I started looking at life so differently,” said Da Brat. “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.
“I was like, nothing’s gonna come out of me!” said Brat, adding, we had a little tug-o-war in the beginning… but I felt like she should have the experience,” said her wife. “She is so nurturing
