Love and Norwood’s son joins 19-month-old Melody Love, making him their second child together. They welcomed baby Mels in 2018.

The pair’s baby news comes just weeks after they publicly experienced marital woes.

In November, Princess claimed her husband left her and baby Melody stranded in Las Vegas after the 2019 Soul Train Awards to go party at a strip club. Her claims led to a huge social media brouhaha, and she even threatened to divorce him.

“I don’t want to be married anymore, period. … This is not love, and I’m done,” the new mother said at the time.

Ray J later had a change of heart and admitted the blowup was all his fault. “Baby, I was wrong, you are right,” he said to the camera on  “The Wendy Williams Show” show during a December interview.

The two had their baby shower shortly afterward at their Los Angeles home.
