Da Brat And Wife Jesseca "Judy" Harris-Dupart On Their Pregnancy Journey And How Son True Changed Their Lives

"He's our little miracle drop," Da Brat said.

Da Brat and her wife, Jesseca "Judy" Dupart-Harris, are opening up on their complicated road to motherhood.

Earlier this year, the couple welcomed their first child. Yet, it was the complications to get there that have created gratitude. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the duo discussed how they endured multiple pregnancy complications that ultimately led to the miraculous birth of their son, True.

The "Funkdafied" rapper has been outspoken in the past about the "major health complications" Judy suffered from an egg retrieval procedure. DaBrat was also hospitalized to remove fibroids and polyps before her embryo transfer procedure. In addition to that, the rapper endured a miscarriage.

"My wife had blood clots in her lungs, [and] she ended up with an enlarged heart, blood thinners [and] hospitalized," Da Brat explained, noting that the hormones from the subcutaneous injections caused Judy's condition. "And then I ended up having polyps in my uterus and fibroids and all kinds of things. You got to make sure you get checked out... But you know, those are the things that you have to go through."  

She continued, "It's not an easy process. The first embryo transfer was successful, but I miscarried and that was devastating. But we decided to keep going."

Da Brat said that caused them to "appreciate the blessing more."

"We understood that it was, you know, it was risky because we were both over 40, but... I feel like anything that she wants in this life, she deserves," Judy shared. "I will do anything to make that happen. She's one of the most nurturing people that I know, and I felt like, 'Who better to be a mother?' And she hadn't."

Judy told the outlet she had envisioned carrying their child herself, but was happy that Da Brat got a life-changing opportunity to experience pregnancy.

"I felt like she deserved the full experience... I knew she would love and appreciate all the parts of it. You know, like, finally seeing the baby and ultrasound and finally feeling the baby kick and the relationship that you've developed while growing a baby inside of you," she said.

Da Brat and the Kaleidoscope Hair Products CEO tied the knot in February 2022. Then, in July, their son entered the world, making Da Brat a mom for the first time. 

"I just see him and hold him and look at him and I give him the face and try to breathe his air," the rapper said. "I can't believe he came out of my body... You do it, and you're in the process, and when you see [him.] He's our little miracle drop like, we beat the odds."
