Vanessa Simmons announces her first pregnancy

These days, it takes a lot to conceal a pregnancy if you're a Hollywood celebrity. However, Vanessa Simmons managed to do so for more than five months! Recently, she announced that she's expecting a girl with her long-time boyfriend, Mike Wayans. She chose to tell the world via Instagram, and she's one of many celebrity moms-to-be who've gone to social media to let everyone know about the baby-in-tow.

While it may seem like the pregnancy has been a breeze thus far for Simmons and Wayans, who kept it on the down-low, Simmons claimed that she was extremely nervous to announce it - specifically to her father, who has not always approved of her non-traditional relationship of eight years.

"I was so nervous telling my dad at first being that I'm not married [yet] but he was very excited and is supportive 100 percent," Simmons told Us Weekly magazine. "His concern is just that I'm happy. Both families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new baby girl. She's coming into two huge families waiting to give her lots of love."

Although her pregnancy calendar is quickly coming to an end, the celebrity says that she has yet to decide on a name for her little girl. Currently, she seems to be more concerned with ensuring that her baby is healthy and her pregnancy ends well. Simmons also hinted that a wedding may be in the near future. However, she told People magazine that won't be until well after her pregnancy - she doesn't want to wear a wedding gown with a baby bump.
