When you have crossed the age of 40, it becomes very difficult for women to get pregnant. We are curious to know how she has managed her health so well!

‘I never thought I was going to have kids’

The couple started their road to engaging in parenthood right after they tied the knot last year in February. Harris-Dupart, 41, was also launching her hair care line Kaleidoscope Hair Products at the time.

The couple joked about ‘extending their family’ as they launched the business. The hair care products were inspired by Dupart Harris’ wife’s lovely braids and hairstyles. If this isn’t love, then we don’t know what is.

From A Joke To A Reality

Yes, it did start as a little joke for them but then the couple realized how much they wanted to have kids. Soon after this realization, they began their journey toward parenthood.

Fear Settles In

Da Brat was always worried that she may not have kids as she never got pregnant before. Her wife already had three children from previous relationships.

Perspective On Life Changes

Da Brat said. "I felt like, because I didn't get pregnant earlier on, then it just wasn't going to happen for me." She was very worried about this and felt hopeless.

"I started looking at life so differently," she added, mentioning that Harris-Dupart helped change her outlook on motherhood. "I was like, I want a little me with you. Something special from the both of us that we can share and raise and love unconditionally."

Upsetting Miscarriage

Da Brat was a little reluctant to carry out the pregnancy but they reached the conclusion that Da Brat will be carrying the baby. Harris-Dupart was already facing some health issues due to her egg retrieval process.

Dupart wanted Da Brat to Experience Motherhood

“She Is so nurturing, I want her to have the experience”, Said Dupart-Harris

Da Brat had never experienced pregnancy before, which is an essential part of motherhood and helps you bond with the baby. Her wife really wanted Da Brat to feel this amazing journey.

Da Brat’s Health Problems

Da Brat had to undergo surgery prior to getting pregnant to remove fibroids and polyps in her uterus. These are benign and non-cancerous growths but have a negative impact on a woman’s pregnancy and delivery.

Da Brat Experiences A Miscarriage

A miscarriage is one of the most painful experiences ever. Our beloved Da Brat had just experienced it.

"I had never been so excited about something that I didn't even know I wanted," she said. "I fell in love with the idea and then it was all snatched away from me."

Despite losing hope at the time, they did not stop trying. They continued with the few eggs they had left and used a donor for pregnancy.

They Don’t Give Up
