“We’re patiently waiting on our little Princess Murray. April 2023,” she wrote, alongside photos of herself cradling her bump.

DeJounte Murray, who is already a father to a son from a previous relationship, previously shared his excitement about becoming a father again. “Our daughter is on the way to the real world, and I can’t wait to see her and be the best father I can to her!” he wrote on Instagram.

I’m so excited to meet our little girl.”

The news of Icelynn Mercedes Murray’s arrival has prompted an outpouring of congratulatory messages on social media. Some fans have pointed out that the name “Icelynn” bears a striking resemblance to the name of Gucci Mane’s daughter, Iceland Davis, leading to speculation that Meshell may have taken inspiration from the rapper and his wife. However, Meshell has been quick to clarify that she and Murray had chosen the name for their baby girl last year, long before Gucci Mane’s daughter was born.
