Ludacris and his new wife announce pregnancy with sweet baby bump photo

Newlyweds Ludacris and Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue have a new baby on the way. The couple, who tied the knot in December, just a few hours after getting engaged, are expecting their first child together. Eudoxie confirmed the happy news, sharing a sweet photo of her rapper husband kissing her bare baby bump as they pose on a tropical beach together.

"Beautiful day at the beach," she captioned the photo, in which she shows off her burgeoning tummy in a turquoise bikini, standing with one hand behind her head. Ludacris quickly reposted the image on his account, adding, "Beautiful day indeed."

Furious 7 star Ludacris and his wife were married over the Christmas holidays on the same day that he popped the question with a romantic proposal on board a private plane. "She didn't say yes. She said HELL YES! #milehighproposal," the 37-year-old shared on Instagram. It's thought that he then surprised his fiancée with a spur-of-the-moment wedding, including her beautiful white wedding gown.

The long-time couple – who have been dating since 2009 - confirmed the happy news of their marriage at the start of the year, with Ludacris sharing a photo from their nuptials of himself looking dapper in a black and white tux, next to his bride. "Why wait? Did the thing before 2015 #mrandmrsbridges."

Unspoken Angels founder Eudoxie also shared a series of snaps on her Instagram account. "Great way to go into the new year," she wrote alongside the collage.

This will be the third child for Ludacris – real name Christopher Brian Bridges – who recently won full custody of his 15-month-old daughter Cai, his child with Tamika Fuller, and also has a 13-year-old daughter Karma from his previous relationship with Atlanta attorney Christine White.

Ludacris is due to release his ninth studio album Ludaversal on 31 March, while his film alongside the late Paul Walker, Furious 7, hits cinemas on 3 April.
