Congratulations are in order as American actor/singer Rotimi and his fiancé, Vanessa Mdee, a Tanzanian singer/songwriter are expecting a child together, a boy.
The couple revealed the good news on their respective Instagram pages earlier today.
”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! 🕊” The power actor wrote.
Speaking exclusively to People, the couple expressed the joy as expectant parent.
“We are super excited to welcome our son. As first-time parents, everything about this experience has been a brand-new challenge,” they say. “We love it.”
