The businesswoman re-shared Jennifer’s post to her Instagram Stories, adding: ‘My heart is so full.’ 

Jennifer first revealed that she was expanding her family on November 24, while sharing a photo of her and Nayel together which had her bump on full display.

‘Thankful,’ she captioned it, alongside a green heart and a bottle emoji. 

At the time, proud grandmother-to-be Melinda gushed in a comment: ‘I couldn’t be more excited to meet this little one and watch you two become parents.’ 

Jennifer and Nayel’s baby girl will be the first grandchild for Bill and Melinda who divorced in 2021 after 27 years of marriage.

After the couple parted ways, Melinda spoke out in detail about what lead to the uncoiling of her marriage and she said there wasn’t one particular thing that lead to their breakup, but rather, it was a bunch of things that added up over time.
