The exciting news comes after a tumultuous few weeks filled with drama for the couple. The drama began in November when Ray J and his family attended BET’s Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas. Princess Love accused Ray J of leaving her and their daughter stranded in Las Vegas. She claimed she would be filing for divorce. After the claim, Ray J was photographed at the Los Angeles International Airport not wearing his wedding ring.

Recently, the rapper has said that he has apologized to his wife for everything he did and they are working it out.

The couple were married in August of 2016 after four years of dating. Two years later, in May of 2018, they welcomed their daughter Melody.
