Rev. Run & Justine Simmons: New Bundle of Joy

Comments (375)

By Karu F. Daniels, AOL Black Voices

As the New Year comes into fold, one famous family has a real reason to be grateful for their blessings.

Reverend Run and his wife Justine Simmons adopted a newborn child in September and US Weekly offered up the exclusive goods on the gorgeous little girl who has been named Miley Justine Simmons.

According to the weekly mainstream glossy tabloid, the couple – who star in the hit MTV reality series 'Run's House' -- decided to adopt Miley – now four months of age – soon after the death of their newborn baby Victoria Anne – who passed away one hour after her birth on Sept. 26th of last year.

According to published reports, the cause of death was a birth defect in which the infant's intestine or other abdominal organs stick out of the belly button.A spokesperson for The Simmonses revealed to The BV Newswire today that Miley will officially be newest addition to the Simmons clan will make her debut on the family's MTV reality series, "Run's House," when the show returns in January.

"People say, 'You need to mourn,' and you do, but only a little because the more you mourn, the more you want to mourn," the missus said. "I would have landed in depression. I wanted a girl really bad, and I knew I wasn't going to try again. That could have really messed me up."

Little Miley joins biological siblings Russy, Diggy; and half siblings Jo-Jo, Angela and Vanessa, the children of Rev. Run and his ex-wife Valerie Vaughn.

And Mama Dearest – who made her literary debut earlier this year with the best-selling children's book 'God Can You Hear Me?' – has plans to not only bask in the joy of newborn bliss; she's getting down to bling business with the launch of a new jewelry line, called Brown Sugar, with the Simmons Jewelry Company. It features brown and yellow diamonds and will be sold on HSN.
