Actor Rotimi and his fiancée, Vanessa Mcdee, are expecting a baby girl!

The Power star and Me and You singer shared the good news in an Instagram post with both mom and dad joyfully releasing an umbrella full of pink flower petals to celebrate their new baby girl. “Baby No. 2. GLORY TO GOD…it’s a girl,” Mcdee captioned the post.

Friends, fans and fellow actors rushed to the comments to congratulate Mcdee and the Boss actor. One Love reggae show host Talia Oyando commented, “Awwwww Vane the joy on your face. Congratulations my love. Congratulations to you and your growing family,” while Rotimi’s Power costar Naturi Naughton added, “Awww so happy for y’all! Congratulations.”

Rotimi and Mcdee’s new baby girl will join a fun family of four, including older brother Seven. The couple welcomed their first child together a little over a year ago, in September 2021. The two kept the pregnancy under wraps until just one month before their son was born.

The two announced their engagement in December 2020 after meeting at an Essence Festival afterparty in New Orleans.

Our best to the growing family of four.
