Remy Ma and Papoose Can’t Stop Sharing Their Baby Joy (and Who Can Blame Them?)
Remy Ma and Papoose
It’s only been a few weeks since the exciting news that married rappers and reality stars Remy Ma and Papoose are expecting, and these lovebirds are counting down the days until their bundle of joy arrives.
The Mackies, who each have a child of their own from previous relationships, have been quite vocal about wanting to expand their family, however, health issues have prevented that from happening in the past. The couple has publicly shared their struggles to conceive and Remy’s experience with multiple ectopic pregnancies. The ectopic pregnancies resulted in Remy losing her fallopian tubes, which consequently made the couple seek out other options such as in-vitro fertilization.
“This was my second ectopic pregnancy, a complication of pregnancy in which the embryo attaches outside the uterus, so I’ve lost both of my fallopian tubes. While I was crying in the hospital bed the doctor told me, ‘It’s fine, you still have your uterus and your eggs are good, you can just do in vitro fertilization. We can put the baby where it needs to be, it’ll cost you anywhere between $10,000 to $20,000.’ I didn’t think about it because, not to brag, I have the $10,000 to $20,000 to pay for it. It wasn’t until I came out with [my story] that I learned a lot of women also have this issue.”
