PEOPLE exclusively announced Pullins' pregnancy in August, when the then-mom-to-be was five months along and said her pregnancy had been "really easy" thus far, without any morning sickness.

And aside from the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented, when she found out she was pregnant, Pullins admitted she was "kind of sad at first."

"I have a million brothers and sisters so I've always been the one like, 'I'm not having a baby anytime soon,' " she told PEOPLE. "So I was kind of sad at first, and my boyfriend was really excited from the jump. He was like, 'You know it's whatever you want to do.' "

Pullins continued, "But after a while, I'm like, 'Now I feel like I can do this. It's something that will mature me and change me in a great way.' I'm trying to wrap my head around it, and now we are here."

Over the past few months, The Mix star had been focused on getting ready to welcome her daughter into the world alongside rapper Izzy and her family — who all couldn't have been more excited, despite some initial shock.

"I definitely expected [T.I.'s] reaction to be a lot like how it was... I didn't expect him to be extremely happy and like, 'Oh my God! Congratulations!' because I know how he is," she told Entertainment Tonight in October. "He's a Libra. He doesn't really play ... I was pretty happy to share that moment with the world; me telling him and telling the world all at the same time was pretty hilarious to me."

"I think [Tiny and T.I.] are definitely getting into the whole [idea] of [the pregnancy]," she added. "My mom has definitely been settling into becoming a grandma for a while now."

Continued Pullins, "My pops, I feel like he's just now kind of settling into it the last couple months. Like, when he sees me, he's like, 'Oh, let's see, you're getting bigger.' "
