‘LHHNY’: Kimbella Vanderhee Pulls a Beyoncé with Pregnancy Announcement at Reunion Show

Love and Hip Hop: New York” couple Kimbella Vanderhee and Juelz Santana are expecting their third child together.

Vanderhee and Santana tied the knot in January amid the Dipset rapper’s justice system problems. In December 2018, he was pleaded guilty ti a possessing a firearm as a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft, and he began serving his 27-month prison sentence on March 1. The judge delayed his initial surrender date from Jan. 30 to Feb. 28 so that he could film Monday night’s “LHHNY” reunion show in Atlanta.

During part 1 of season 9’s reunion show that aired on March 11, the couple announced that they’re expanding their family. When host Nina Parker made a comment about Vanderhee’s supposed “glow,” the “LHHNY” actress stood up, unbuttoned her blazer and rubbed her pregnant belly à la Beyoncé‘s first pregnancy reveal at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, California.
