“Big news from Madison,” Luckett-Walker, 37, captioned the video.
The singer, who wed Walker in December, told Essence they plan to announce the sex of the baby on Independence Day.
“We are over the moon and overjoyed by this news,” she said. “We feel so blessed that God has gifted us with the gift of life. We will be revealing the gender on the fourth of July. This is a straight up blessing, just a blessing. So keep us in your prayers. It doesn’t matter if it’s a girl or boy. We just wanted to have a healthy baby.”
The pregnancy announcement comes less than a year Luckett-Walker became engaged to the Dallas-based entrepreneur, whose daughter Madison is from a previous relationship. Luckett-Walker has a close bond with her stepdaughter, posting a sweet tribute for Madison’s 6th birthday in January.
