Having a tough day? I’ve got just the right thing to bring a smile to your face!

Monica posted a very adorable video of her youngest child and only daughter, Laiyah Brown, taking some of her first steps on Instagram. The singer says that little Laiyah took her first couple steps while attempting to walk to her father, NBA star Shannon Brown, a few days ago. But she took a few more steps for her grandmother (and for you too I guess), yesterday.

In the video, the cutie can be seen in her white onesie and socks, taking her time with her steps on an outside deck as her famous and fabulous mother cheers her on in the background: “That’s my girl! You got it! Yes you do!” Here’s the caption that Monica put up with the short clip:

“Walking at 10 months!! #LaiyahShannon there’s always some colorful things happening when I get to My Moms to get the kids LOL Laiyah took her first steps getting to her dad says ago!! But hair crazy in a onesie is just how my Nana let me kick it #YoungAndFree #ILoveHerSmile #ILoveMyBabies #RockoIsStillHiding LOL”

The little one kept quite the big smile on her face as she walked, and in the process, she stole our hearts!

Check out the very adorable clip above.

In this day and age where a celebrity’s every move can be well chronicled, somehow these celebrities managed to surprise us all by popping up pregnant out of nowhere. No announcement, no save the date, just them, the red carpet, and a baby bump.

Lil Kim reigned as the Queen Bee of rap in the late 90’s. Although her career took a nosedive following a jail stint for lying under oath, the diminutive star still managed to release new music. She may not be the hottest female rapper around anymore but the Brooklyn emcee will have a new title to her name. Lil Kim popped up at an event during New York Fashion Week earlier this month with a big bun in the oven. She’s a few months into the pregnancy and her boyfriend and daddy to be Mr. Papers revealed she is having a baby boy.

Monica wrote: “Everyday is Valentines Day over this way❤ #FlashBackFriday  #MyDailyCrush  #MyHusband  #GodsLoveBlessedOurLove  @l_s_brown.”

Rapper Big Sean had a longtime girlfriend back when he signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. Even though she was there for much of his success, the couple parted ways in 2013 and soon after that the Detroit rapper was in the arms of another woman. Big Sean met actress Naya Rivera on Twitter first before taking their romance offline and into the real world. After dating for just six months, Sean popped the question this past October.

A couple of months ago Monica and Shannon Brown welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. Now, they have one more thing to celebrate: their third wedding anniversary. The “Love All Over Me” singer shared a video to her Instagram page yesterday of herself and hubby, Shannon, exchanging rings in a beautiful, yet romantically simple vow renewal ceremony.

“Happy❤️Anniversary❤️SB❤️I am often times in awe of you!!! I fell in love with you the second our eyes met & everyday since I’ve thanked God for allowing me to experience a love that is of him,” Monica sweetly wrote.

“You have always put the children & I above all else & you constantly remind us we are not alone,” she continued.

“We love you endlessly @shannonbrown26 each day my heart smiles watching you effortlessly be a great father & husband❤️I Love You #ForeverAlways 11-22-10 #Wedding1 #NoOneKnewWeSaidIDO.”

They’re such a lovely couple. Back in 2011, the then-newlyweds told ESSENCE that they make their love work by never allowing their busy schedules to compromise family time.

“We’re together a lot because I think you make time for the things that are important and our marriage is important to us. So we make time, all the time. At a video shoot Shannon and I go in my dressing room and order the food we want and just spend time talking to each other and getting to know each other even more. Every day is a new day, so it never stops. You never stop learning each other. Sometimes the best moments are just the quiet ones,” Monica said.

How beautiful!

Isn’t this the most adorable mother-daughter preciousness you’ve seen in a long time?

Well you should thank Monica for it because she’s the proud mother behind this photo. Taking to Instagram, the singer uploaded her very first pic with her baby girl, writing:

On September 3, the day she was born, proud papa Shannon Brown posted a pic of him with his baby girl, saying: I THANK GOD for her!!! JOY has been restored in my LIFE!!! And not too long after that, Monica’s girl Tiny, posted her own Instagram pic with the little cutie who happens to be her god-daughter.

Laiyah is Monica and Shannon’s first child together and Monica’s third. She has two boys with rapper Rocco and they seem to be doing a great job as big brothers. In another pic of Monica’s she showed her sons, Rocko and Romelo, with Laiyah and wrote: “Everyday I wake up I feel inspired, encouraged & motivated to be the best person I can be because of these three. My heart beats for My Children.. #RockoLaiyahRomelo #OutsideEnjoyingNature

Pink & Ponies: Check Out The Pictures From Monica’s Baby Shower

On Saturday, Monica and her NBA baller husband Shannon Brown hosted a baby shower for their new baby girl. The shower, which took place at Jermaine Dupri’s Atlanta home, had a pink and ponies theme and it was pretty adorable.

On the very pink invitations Monica sent out she said no children and no cameras. But it’s hard to stop a grown man from snapping at pic or two in his own house…or posting a professional one on his Instagram. So we have a little sneak peek for you all today.

And it seems like it’s already been confirmed by Monica’s Instagram bio that the little girl’s name will be Laiyah. Allegedly, Tiny gave the couple the name. Little Laiyah will be the second child for Shannon, third for Monica and the first girl for both of them.

Check out some adorable pics from Monica’s baby shower on the following pages.  

Get Ready To Be Spoiled! Monica & Shannon Brown Are Having A Girl!

If what we’re hearing is true, Monica might be a really excited woman!

We know that when women are pregnant, one of the things they wish for the most is a healthy baby. But when you’ve got a house full of boys like singer Monica, it would be nice if your next bundle of joy could be a little girl.

Luckily for her, that looks to be the case! Sandra Rose is reporting that sources have told her that Monica and husband Shannon Brown are expecting the first little this fall. Monica has two sons from a previous relationship and Shannon has a son from his previous relationship.  This little lady will sure be surrounded by a lot of security guards (better known as her brothers and her dad)!

Rose also revealed that Baby Brown’s name will be Laiyah and the couple will be having a baby shower later this month.

Looks like one of Monica and Shannon’s friends just couldn’t keep their mouths closed! But we know all of Monica’s fans are excited because ever since we found out the Browns were expecting, the constant sentiment was, “Congrats, I hope she has a girl this time!”

How exciting for the entire family!
