Shannon Brown and Monica Expecting a Baby

There’s a baby on the way for Monica!

The R&B singer-songwriter, 32, and husband Shannon Brown, 27, are expecting their first child together this fall, she confirmed over the weekend. Sharing a photo of her baby belly, Monica writes that she’s five months along.

Monica is already mom to sons Rocko, 8 this month, and Romelo Montez, 5, while the Phoenix Suns guard is dad to son Shannon Christopher.

The couple, who met when Brown costarred in his wife’s “Love All Over Me” video, were married in November 2010 at their Los Angeles home.

Since the wedding, Monica hoped to expand their family, telling PEOPLE in 2012 that she wants “maybe two or three” more children. She has her start!

She’s very pretty. I hope she has a girl tbh. I mean she does have 2 boys so i’d like to see if she has a daughter as pretty as she is. 🙂 my opinion. If she has another boy i have nothing against that. This is just my opinion.

isn’t she the one who wants all her kids to look white with green eyes. could have sworn I read that in either ebony or jet. she bragged about how light they are like her father and have his green eyes. the only way she will have white kids is if she is white and apparently she is not.
