Ray J & Princess Love Have Said They Want to Have More Children
Ray J and Princess Love have talked about their plans to have more children together. “I want one more right now,” the former revealed. “I’m trying right now. I’m trying to get one in and hopefully we can have another by April, if it happens.” Ray J attributed the desire to give Melody a sibling to his close relationship with his sister, R&B star Brandy. “They could be friends and protect each other, like my sister and myself,” he said.
“[Princess] might want three or four, but two is good,” Ray J added. “Knock two punch, bada bing, bada boom. We in and we out… Hopefully if we get a boy, we’ve got the perfect family!”
