Ray J said he and his wife tried for a while before conceiving. 

“We was trying for a while,” he said. “It’s not as easy as people think.”

Love commented on the news in an Instagram post that included a photo of her baby bump.

“It’s such a blessing from God to be able to carry our child. We kept this to ourselves until after the first trimester because it’s bad luck to announce too early,” she wrote. “But we’re so proud to share this journey with you guys. Thank you for all of the love and prayers.”

The reality TV stars were married in August 2016 after getting engaged in October 2015.
