"I cannot wait to meet her. And I can't imagine this life journey with anyone but you…my Lovely. May she be as beautiful as you and as talented as me😁😂😂😍😍🥰🥰❤️❤️❤️!!!! GOD I LOVE YOU!! #ItsAGirl #Number5," he added.
Fast-forward to Friday, his wife, Renay made the announcement in a post she shared on her Instagram page.
