As she prepares for another season of the hit reality T.V. show “Love & Hip-Hop, NY” a first time mother is also preparing to welcome her new baby into the world. Yandy Smith was spotted holding a lavish baby shower this week alongside her beau. Smith and her boyfriend Mandeecees held a ‘Welcome Baby Harris’ party Tuesday, July 3, with 200 of their closest friends and family at Tian restaurant. The event, which was chronicled by Smith’s website EverythingGirlsLove, included a plethora of celebrity guests including Missy Elliot and Julez Santana, two artists Smith previously managed. In addition to hanging with the music celebs, the couple partied with Kimbella Vanderhee, Smith’s best friend or “pud” who is also very pregnant.
Before this week’s event, Yandy was coy about her pregnancy leading up to a lackluster ‘I’m expecting’ announcement on Twitter in April. “You wanted to know, now you know,” wrote Smith under a picture of her holding her belly. The reality star is said to be due in in July.
