Former NFL player, Ray Rice, and his wife, Janay, are about to expand their family! Just two years after Ray knocked his then fiancée unconscious in an elevator, Janay and Ray are ready to welcome baby #2 into their lives — congrats!
Ray Rice, 29, and his wife Janay, 28, are pregnant! And they could NOT have looked happier together in their Instagram announcement pics. SO sweet! We’re glad the couple has seemed to totally move on from their 2014 scandal where both individuals were arrested and charged with assault after a scary physical altercation went down at a casino in Atlantic City. But better yet, their daughter, Rayven, 4, is about to become a big sis!
“The Rice’s. Yup we will now be a family of 4! #21weeks #therices #wonderwhatitis #blessed,” Janay captioned her super adorable announcement pic featuring her and Ray all dressed up for date night. The stylish mom looked completely fabulous in a figure-flaunting green dress and nude studded heels. And boy has her baby bump blossomed! At 21 weeks, Janay is certainly glowing.
The couple admittedly doesn’t know yet what sex their new arrival will be, but boy or girl, we know little Rayven will make such an amazing big sister. And honestly, the family has come a LONG way from 2014 when Ray and Janay were involved in a messy — and frightening — domestic violence scandal.
For those of you who need a refresher, in February 2014, Ray reportedly knocked Janay unconscious in Atlantic City, New Jersey and then proceeded to drag her from an elevator. Ray was ultimately arrested and then indicted for third-degree aggravated assault. But as it turned out, Janay married Ray just a month later in March. The heart wants what it wants, right?
“She still loves him to this day,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY in September 2014. “They patched up that situation long ago and he apologized for it. He told her he’d never do such an unthinkable thing again.” And so far, so good as there have been no more violent incidents between Ray or Janay. It definitely seems like the family is thriving and we can’t wait for them to take this next step — we wish them all the best!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you happy that Ray and Janay are pregnant again? Send your congratulations below!
