Congrats are in order for Mike Epps and his wife, Kyra Epps. The newlyweds are expecting their first child together just five months after tying the knot.
The proud mom-to-be broke the news Friday morning via Instagram with a maternity photo, which she captioned:
“There is so much LIFE inside of me.”
Mike and the “Iyanla Fix My Life” producer began dating in 2017 after meeting while traveling. They got engaged a short time later.
“We met in the airport,” Kyra said during an appearance on “The View”. “It was 6 a.m. and I was half asleep and he walked up to me and said, ‘Do you dance?’ And I said ‘What?! Do I dance? I’m a producer.’”
“He was like, ‘Oh,’” she said. “I said, ‘I like you, that was funny.’”
“‘Cause strippers hang in the airport all of the time [laughs],” he chimed in. “I got lucky.”
As for what prompted him to get engaged within a year of his divorce from his ex-wife, the Mike had this to say during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club”:
“It did look fast but you know, I like to be married. I don’t like being single. I’m one of those guys, I like to come home to something structured. Some food, a little something. Someone to share my day with. I can’t date a whole bunch of women.”
The pair exchanged vows this past summer in front of 200 relatives and friends during a storybook wedding ceremony in Newport Beach, California. Celebrity guests included Snoop Dogg, T.I., Tiny, and Doug E. Fresh.
This will be the 49-year-old actor’s fifth child. He shares two children with his ex-wife, Mechelle McCain, and has two children from a previous relationship.
