We’re constantly being rushed through life. If we’re not married, we’re asked about when we will be. If we’re married, we’re asked when we’re going to have a child. And if we have one child, we’re asked about the possibility of having another. (Maybe when you get old, people will ask you if you’ve thought about dying…)
If you’d like an example of this, you can look at Remy Ma and Papoose’s interview this week on The Real. While chatting with the co-hosts about her current pregnancy, and all that was required to make it happen, Tamera Mowry-Housley asked the couple if they thought they would try again for another baby. Now, keep in mind that the couple’s “Golden Child,” as they call him/her, hasn’t been born yet. They don’t know what rearing baby Mackie will be like. But Remy surprisingly shared that they are considering trying again around 2020.
“Ok, so when we did IVF, we did two cycles,” she said. “The first cycle, we only got one egg and I was nervous. I was like, let’s just do it again so we’ll have more. We got one again the second time, so we had two. One was a boy, one was a girl, but I didn’t want to know which one. Whichever one was first, put that one back first and then the other one. So I told [Papoose], if he behaves and doesn’t spoil the golden child like he’s planning to do, we have a good baby and he accepts my nanny stuff and all of that, maybe somewhere around 2020, we’ll do the other one.”
She will also be a happy camper if the pregnancy goes as well as her current one.
I was worried about just being big and not being able to work,” she added. “But I looked and I’m like, I only gained 12 pounds. Let’s do this again.”
Until then though, Golden Child watch is underway. In preparation for baby Mackie, a baby shower is currently being planned. The theme? Remy’s sock hop and soda shop — a Grease-inspired fete.
“I have all the girls coming who think I’m having a girl because we don’t know, they wear pink poodle skirts. All the girls that think it’s a boy wear blue poodle skirts,” she said. “And if you have no idea, you can just wear red or black. All the guys have to be dressed like greasers in the leather jackets.”
Back in August, Remy said that they were going to go the old-school route and wait until they give birth to know if they’re having a boy or girl.
“No gender reveal,” she said, “we gonna wait til the baby is born.”
