Yandy Reveals What She Hopes To Name Her Baby Girl
A few months ago, we learned that “Love & Hip Hop” star Yandy Smith is expecting her second child with fiancé, Mendecees Harris. As it turns, the pair is expecting a baby girl. During a recent chat with Mara the Hip Hop Socialite, the reality star revealed that she’s already in love with one particular name that she hopes to give to her baby girl.
“I love the name Smith,” the beauty confessed, “which is my last name, but he is very big on names that have meaning. His whole family has African names that have meaning – ask me if he’s African, and I’ll tell you no. But he wants our daughter to have a name with meaning, so we’ll see what happens. I don’t know if I’m going to win the Smith battle, but all my children will be named Harris, so I just wanted to have my legacy live.”
She also discussed plans for their wedding and why things keep getting pushed back.
“Everything is going good – it’s a lot. Planning a baby shower, planning a wedding, managing companies, managing artists, shooting a TV show – it’s a lot. Dates are constantly getting changed because I’m like, ‘Oh, this event is coming up. Oh, I have this EGL thing. Oh, I have this.’ So I’m just trying to manage it all, and get this wedding stuff together. But everything, you know, the aesthetics are coming along fine, it’s just locking in the time because we both have crazy schedules. So you leave it to him, we’ll be going to the justice of the peace; we’ll be going to Vegas doing a shotgun wedding. He’s like, ‘Why do we need this Yandy? Why do we need all this stuff?’ And I’m just like, ‘It’s what I dreamed about – it’s what I want.’”
As for their relationship being under constant scrutiny, Yandy had this to say:
“It doesn’t only happen in my relationship. It happens with my hair, my outfit, my makeup, if I’m getting fat or getting too skinny. It’s just what people do. And Instagram, Twitter, all those things have allowed people to become these super gangsters behind a screen with no face and no name. So it’s just what’s to be expected in this business.”
