"I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January 💙 It's almost like everything I thought mattered in this life has completely changed. We're here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious."
Vanessa continued, addressing her unborn child: "I can't believe how much growth & strength you've already given me as your mom. It's like God knew I needed you, my angel. The universe works in mysterious ways but always times everything the way it was meant to be. Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing ☺️ I'm just so happy & can't wait to dedicate everyday to being the best mommy I can be 💙 'I'll love you forever I'll like you for always as long as I'm living my baby you'll be 🎶' - if you know you know #preggers 🤰🏽 👶🏼."
