Power star Rotimi and fiancée Vanessa Mdee are expecting their first child together, a baby boy. Rotimi shared the happy news on his Instagram along with several maternity shots of him and his bride-to-be earlier today.
He captioned under one photo, “My greatest gift has been you. You changed my life and now we are beautifully linked forever to raise a little us. I pray our son has your glow Your heart, Your mind, and your spirit. I will protect you and our son with everything I have!”
Rotimi and his soon-to-be wife also shared the news with People. magazine, saying, “We are super excited to welcome our son. As first-time parents, everything about this experience has been a brand-new challenge.”
Mdee, 33, says of her “very smooth” pregnancy journey so far, “He’s been so good to us. No real pain or symptoms. Some funny cravings and food aversions here and there. It’s been much harder in these final weeks because he’s preparing his arrival, but all in all we’ve been super blessed.”
Rotimi proposed to his then girlfriend, Mdee, on Dec. 30, 2020 in Atlanta. In an Instagram post, the singer/ actor revealed that this relationship is one that he prayed for years ago. “She said YES,” he writes. “You are my everything. My angel. In 2015 I prayed that whoever my wife was going to be and wherever she was at the moment I hoped that she was happy, having a good day and receiving GOD’S abundance.”
He continued, “Fast forward… YOU… you make me such a better man.. Im in debt to GOD For you. I will pay him back by loving you & giving you eveyrhing that you deserve.”
Vanessa also shared on her Instagram that she knew Rotimi was her husband after only a few weeks of dating. ” She wrote in December of 2020, “A year and a half ago the world laughed at me when I said I knew YOU were my husband only days after spending time with you. I didn’t blame them, after all it’s an uncommon and inexplicable feeling when you meet your soulmate. ( Also they’d met the Vee who had no plans to be married).”
