Power and Coming 2 America actor Rotimi and fiancée Vanessa Mdee, a Tanzanian singer/songwriter, are currently expecting their first baby together, a son, who was recently revealed exclusively with American PEOPLE magazine.

They were quoted saying, “We are super excited to welcome our son. As first-time parents, everything about this experience has been a brand-new challenge, we love it.”

They went on to talk about how smooth sailing the pregnancy has been so far, with weird food cravings and aversions, except it’s been harder these few weeks as they draw closer to the baby’s arrival. 

The pair, who got engaged on December 30, 2020, in Atlanta, announced their pregnancy on Instagram, with Rotimi penning a heartfelt message to his wife.

“My greatest gift has been you.

You changed my life and now we are beautifully linked forever to raise a little us.

I pray our son has your glow, your heart, your mind and your spirit.

I will protect you and our son with everything I have!”

In their interview with PEOPLE magazine, when asked the kind of parents they think each other will be when their baby boy arrives, Rotimi says his fiancée is destined to be a “very passionate, love and protective mom.”

And Rotimi, Mdee says, is “definitely going to be the cool, calm, collected and fun dad who’s also a great communicative disciplinarian.”
