Though Da Brat is pregnant with the couple's baby, Harris-Dupart underwent the egg retrieval procedure. The expecting parents then chose an anonymous donor, described as "an eager entrepreneur" from their cryo bank, which was combined with the egg and transferred into Da Brat — who is now 18 weeks pregnant.

"It's been quite a journey," Da Brat candidly said to a news publication while opening up about her pregnancy. "There's a lot of stuff we learned about women over the age of 40."

"It started as a joke, we were like, 'We're extending our family!'" the "What'Chu Like" rapper confessed, as she noted she and her wife were metaphorically referring to a collaboration Harris-Dupart had launched with Da Brat for her company, Kaleidoscope Hair Products.

"But then we got a huge response. It was like, 'Oh my God do we want to actually have kids, and if we do, girl, we better hurry up!'" Da Brat — who tied the knot with Harris-Dupart in February 2022 — quipped.

"I never thought I was going to have kids," Da Brat admitted, although she is stepmom to Harris-Dupart's three children. "I just thought it wasn't in the cards for me. I've had a great career, a full life. I felt like, because I didn't get pregnant earlier on, then it just wasn't going to happen for me."

However, everything changed the moment she fell head-over-heels in love with her now-wife.

"I started looking at life so differently," Da Brat explained. "I was like, I want a little me with you. Something special from the both of us that we can share and raise and love unconditionally."

The "Funkdafied" vocalist initially had doubts about conceiving a child, but Harris-Dupart was able to convince her it was possible.

"We had a little tug-o-war in the beginning…but I felt like she should have the experience," Da Brat's wife stated. "She is so nurturing."

The couple's pregnancy journey was not smooth sailing, as they suffered a miscarriage during their first attempt at conceiving.

"I had never been so excited about something that I didn't even know I wanted," Da Brat emotionally revealed. "I fell in love with the idea and then it was all snatched away from me."

"Luckily, we still had quite a few of her eggs left," Da Baby spilled of her relief.

"It's just a blessing. I'm excited!" the Chicago native concluded. "I don't have any cravings or nausea, but I'm always sleepy. It's crazy!"
