Speaking of celebrity children…
“One Wish” singer Ray J and his wife Princess recently welcomed a new edition into the world. Ray posted a sweet birth announcement video onto Instagram, letting everyone know that his daughter had arrived.
“4 MY BABY GIRL!!!” the new dad captioned the Instagram post on May 22. “CANT BELIEVE ITS HAPPENING!! THIS IS AMAZING!! UNREAL #GODISHERE SPREAD THIS LOVE ALL OVER THE WORLD!”
The two-minute-long video showed clips of the duo at the doctor during Princess’ pregnancy, images of the couple’s baby shower, footage of the two’s wedding and more.
Like most famous parents, the stars attempted to keep as many details about their then-unborn little one private. However, between the media and fans, that task was very hard.
Though they openly shared their big news with the public at the right time, the couple wanted to keep the gender of their budding bun-in-the-oven secret. Nothing ever stays a secret for long though, so…
At the time, TMZ reported that Ray J and Princess’ registry for their then-upcoming baby shower was a tell-tell sign of their child’s gender. The then-parents-to-be requested things like a cashmere baby basket, a travel crib, a rocking sheep and, of course, tons of onesies and outfits. The extravagant gifts — which were said to be mostly pink — reportedly range from $25 to $2800.
It seemed the stars were sparing no expense for their first child. The shower itself was rumored to cost over a quarter of a million dollars. The $250,000 event was reported to take place in the middle of March in Los Angeles at a “top-of-the-line hotel,” a vast difference from the shower Princess’ mom threw the couple. The former stripper’s mother, Lina, put a modest gathering together, inviting Princess’ Filipino family.
A Family Affair
“Yesterday my mom threw us a baby shower… and Ray finally got to meet ALL of my cousins on my Filipino side,” Princess captioned the string of black and white photos. “Words can’t express how much fun I had been around all of my friends and family in the bay.”
Ray J, whose family was not present at the event, was thrilled to meet his wife’s family. “BABY SHOWER AT PRINCESS FAMILY HOUSE TODAY HOSTED BY PRINCESS MOM! LINA IN HAYWARD CA!! SO EXCITED!!” he captioned photos posted onto his own social media.
