Singer Brooke Valentine is a mom again.

The 34-year-old Love and Hip Hop Hollywood star wasn’t the one who revealed this news, though. The star’s fiancé, Marcus Black, with whom she appears on LHHH, announced that they recently welcomed a baby girl while showering the “Girlfight” singer with praise on Mother’s Day. According to him, it was her decision to be as low-key about the pregnancy and delivery as possible, noting that it was high risk.

“What do you get a woman who only wants privacy and chic-fil-a 😂 ???” he joked. “I went back and forth all day on whether or not I was gon post this but I mean… it’s Mother’s Day babe. I just can’t let the day end without publicly thanking you for our princess, I thank God for you and I’m excited about this new journey. Through all the ups and downs, high risk appointments, hospital stays and life’s uncertainties you stayed solid. You’ve always been ten toes down. I never had to question where you stood in my life. My plan is to multiply your investment in my purpose. I love you without conditions my ni–a… Happy Mother’s Day.”

In her own message on InstaStories, the singer thanked her fans for their well-wishes.

“Thank you all for your support and respect for privacy,” she wrote. “When it comes to my kids I’m just a bit old fashion.”

Valentine, born Kanesha Nichole Brookes, has a son named London from a prior relationship, born in 2010. She has been reportedly dating Black, a music producer, since 2015, and they got engaged while filming LHHH. For a period in their relationship, she was practicing celibacy, hoping to not have sex again until she was married.

“It’s a spiritual thing,” she said at the LHHH reunion in 2017. “One of the things that made me fall in love with Marcus is how he totally understood. We prayed together. I didn’t feel like he was kissing me with a motive or things like that. So although I’ve been called a ho a thousand times or two in one comment span, I’m not that.”

They’re engaged so…close enough.

If you’re impressed by the pair’s ability, along with friends and family, to keep this pregnancy and delivery under wraps, there’s a possibility that she may have received some tips on how to do it from the following stars. These famous folks kept pregnancies, including those of their chosen surrogates, on the low-low.
