Ray admitted, "I didn’t know I was that much of a crybaby. I was up for a day and a half before because I was just so excited. We went to the doctor for the last check-up and they said it was time to go in, everything I prepared for didn’t happen. I watched the whole thing, it was so emotional, a life-changing experience. When I first laid eyes on our baby I was crazy in love, she heard my voice and just connected with me."



Princess said, "I wanted a natural birth, I’m not afraid of pain. I went 27 hours until my epidural, but I was barely dilating, I wanted it over with. I tried for as long as I could, I’m okay with that. The doctor didn’t tell me until the next morning, but the cord was wrapped around her neck and feet and in a knot. She was stuck, her heart rate was so high, but they didn’t know anything was wrong until they took her out, she didn’t cry at first, but thankfully she was okay and weighed 7lbs."

Princess also explained how they chose their daughter's name. "I wanted to name her London Love — Lolo! But I also loved his song Melody. It sounded like he could have been talking about his future daughter. I thought I was going to have a boy and would have named him Princeton, but [we’ll] definitely have more babies."

Ray's sister, Brandy, also shared a photo of her niece on Instagram. However, Ray revealed his sister hadn't yet met his daughter. Fans may recall that Brandy and Princess haven't exactly gotten along in the past.


Ray revealed that his mom and Princess’s mother were in the delivery room when Melody was born, but that Brandy would be meeting her niece soon.
