On Tuesday, Aug. 4, Pullins revealed she and boyfriend, rapper Bandhunta Izzy, 23, are expecting their first child together. Harris couldn’t have been happier for her daughter and re-posted a photo of Pullins’ maternity shoot to her Instagram page on Wednesday.
“I can finally say…My baby is having a baby!! I’m getting more excited by the day!!” the Xscape singer exclaimed. ” @zonniquejailee @bandhunta_izzy Congratulations to you both!! I love y’all 👑💙‼️ #Babygirlontheway #Zonnique #Izzy #TheMix #TuesdayNight.”
While a slew of fans congratulated Pullins on her unborn child, others criticized the mother-to-be for having a child out of wedlock.
“Finally? Why not teach ya “baby” not to be another BM but to be a WIFE,” the critic commented on Harris’ post.
Mama bear Harris wasn’t having it and fired back, “Girl get tf off my page wit that s–t. She gone be good if she don’t have a husband! I didn’t have one when I had her & we did damn good & we great now!”
Social media users had mixed reactions to Harris’ response.
“We do need to aim for marriage before havin babies… People stay together long enough to lay up and have a baby…”
“Yoooo!!!!! who tf do some of y’all think y’all are… how y’all kno what values that women instilled in HER CHILD!!!!! Ya don’t …. and SHES GROWN…”
“I had high hopes for Zonnique. So young and pretty. Being someone’s 3rd baby momma, isn’t the biz”
“Right Tiny! Ppl act like marriage is a guarantee for happiness. It isn’t. If that young lady is happy w/her decisions, say “Congrats” &move tf on..”
The Harris family is excited about Pullins’ news, which Pullins is speaking out about.
The 24-year-old singer recently told People magazine, “Literally every year, probably for the past three years, this same rumor [that I was pregnant] had come out. This time I actually am pregnant. It’s weird!”
Pullins and Harris are still sorting out baby names. Pullins told People that her pregnancy is “something that will mature me and change me in a great way.”
