It’s a Girl for Monica and Shannon Brown!


Congrats are definitely in order for R&B singer Monica and her husband, Phoenix Suns basketball player, Shannon Brown. The couple revealed that they would be welcoming their first daughter this fall through their baby shower invitation. Monica has two sons from a previous relationship and Shannon has one. Shannon couldn’t be happier about his baby girl as he tells the media, “I just want to be the first person that my daughter smiles at!”

Monica says that she would have been happy with a boy or girl, just as long as her baby came out healthy. The baby girl has already been named by her godmother Tameka “Tiny” Harris. Her name will be Laiyah.

We’re so happy for the Brown family! The countdown to baby Laiyah’s arrival has begun.
