“Love and Hip Hop: New York” stars Yandy Smith-Harris and Mendeecees Harris have been married for five years and share two children, 8-year-old Omere Harris, and 5-year-old Skylar Smith-Harris. Those familiar with the VH1 reality show have seen the two go through their share of drama, including accusations of infidelity and even his prison time. However, regardless of their issues, the two have always managed to reconcile and move on as a family.
Recently, Yandy took to her Instagram page to share a sweet moment of bonding between herself and her husband with her 6.5 million fans. In an almost seven-minute clip, which appeared to have initially been an Instagram Live session, Yandy could be seen going through a skin care routine with Mendeecees. The couple playfully joked around with each as the record producer helped his wife, handing her a towel.
Fans in the comments section gushed over the adorable display of affection between the two. However, things took a hilarious left turn when people in the comments section pointed out Yandy and Mendeecees’ supposed resemblance to each other. “Y’all been together foreva u kno once u wit sum1 along time you start looking like each otha💯,” one person commented.
Another fan wrote, “You know they say when you’re happily married, you start to look just alike-❤️.”
A third person echoed that theme, saying, “All married couples begin to favor each other after while.”
Meanwhile, other fans flooded the comments section with warm messages expressing how happy they were to see the family back together. “I’m so happy ur husband is home my husband still way I got a little ways to go but you guys give me inspiration waiting for my husband thank you God bless❤️,” a fan wrote.
Earlier this year, as previously reported, Mendeecees was released from prison to a New York halfway house in January after serving four years behind bars after he was convicted of drug trafficking. In 2015, the reality star was hit with an 8 to 10-year sentence on charges of shipping cocaine and heroin from New York City to Rochester, New York, between the years of 2006 and 2008. At the time, the music exec took a plea deal and began serving his sentence in January 2016.
According to the federal Bureau of Prisons, Mendeecees was due to be released from his Brooklyn halfway house this week on Wednesday, Oct. 14.
