New mommy Vanessa Simmons made Rev Run a grandpa for the first time when she recently gave birth this past February. The 30-year-old is mom to a beautiful baby-girl named Ava Marie Jean who she shares with boyfriend Mike Wayans. Yes, he too is a member of a wealthy Hollywood family. Perfect right? Here's what Vanessa said about her pregnancy:
"I was so nervous telling my dad at first being that I'm not married YET but he was very excited and is supportive 100 percent. His concern is just that I'm happy," she continued. "Both families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new baby girl. She's coming into two huge families waiting to give her lots of love."
Since giving birth, Vanessa has been back to work, when not spending time with her baby. She was recently cast in web series called "Mixed," a single-camera comedy about her character, named Samantha Hoffman, who is a bi-racial conservative who moves back home with her liberal parents after obtaining her master’s degree.
And it was just announced that the Pastry mogul is the host of Lifetime network's latest fashion challenge show, "Threads." Joined by "Project Runway" winner, Christian Siriano and Seventeen Magazine editors, Simmons will help up-and-coming designers as they compete for a grand prize of $25,000 and a scholarship to FIDM.
Vanessa continues to be proof that post-baby days can be fly and fabulous, and it looks like she's balancing motherhood and the work grind just fine. Take a look!
