In a heart-wrenching episode of WE tv’s Brat Loves Harris-Dupart, the So So Def rapper reveals the doctor recommends she doesn’t carry a child due to Da Brat’s diagnosis of fibroid tumors. The 48-year-old shared that she has dreamed of expanding her family and creating a child with her wife, Jesseca “Judy” Harris-Dupart, chief executive officer of Kaleidoscope Hair Products.
The beautiful couple united in marriage this past 2/22/22 at the Horse Mansion in Fairburn, Georgia, where guests like Eva Marcille and Kandi Burruss came to enjoy the romantic ceremony. Da Brat even told People, "Everything about her made me want her to be mine forever. And I felt like I knew it not much longer than from the day we met."
So, the disturbing news was that she had two fibroid tumors were crushing. “The doctor suggested that I shouldn’t carry. I saw ’em. I did the whole ultrasound and all that sh*t. I saw the tumors. I mean, I don’t know much about fibroid tumors, but you know he was like it would probably be better if my partner carries.” Da Brat said during the episode. According to WomensHealth.gov, about 20 percent to 80 percent of women develop fibroids by the time they reach age 50.
Not long ago, Da Brat and Harris-Dupart shared that they were hospitalized temporarily from IVF complications while on the Tamron Hall show. “It’s just been a lot, but we were not giving up…We want a baby together. So we want it to be, you know, we wanted, we want some of me, some of her. So we both had to go through different things to make it happen. This has been a journey.” Like the nurturing being she is, Da Brat was fearful of disappointing Harris-Dupart. Not to mention her excitement to experience motherhood in the way she envisioned.
While the dream was for Da Brat to carry the child since it would be her first, Harris-Dupart is more than willing to step in and carry the child if need be, as told to Essence. “Ideally, I would want it to be her. But if she can’t, we’re going to make it happen either way it goes,” Harris-Dupart said.
