"Married to Medicine" star Quad Webb has cleared the air concerning the latest addition to her family as she revealed that baby Ariana is not her adopted daughter.
Ever since welcoming baby Ariana into her home back in April, Quad Webb has been subject to speculations by fans that the baby girl was adopted. However, the reality star is shutting all rumors down and setting the record straight.

During an interview with The Daily Dish on Bravo TV, Webb made it known that she and her mom were playing a role in raising the girl. Referring to herself and her mom as "part of the village" to raise the little girl, Webb explained that they were solely acting as support systems. She said in her statement:
"My mom and I are in a supportive role for Ari, and while everyone is elated about the new addition to our family, she has a mother."
Essence recalls that Webb first shared the news of Ariana joining her family in May when she let fans know that she would be meeting the baby girl in a hospital in Memphis. The "Sister Circle" star added that the infant was 8 pounds and couldn't wait to "give her the best life possible."
However, it wasn't until June that the 40-year-old gave fans a first glimpse of her baby girl. Bravo TV reports that Webb shared the first photo of Ariana on Instagram and attached a strong message in honor of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In the candid shot, Webb kept the little girl's face out of view and had baby Ari's cute finger wrapped around her thumb. The heart-tugging image, which showed Ari in a cute pink onesie was captioned, "life is precious, it should be protected and valued."

Webb's baby girl was welcomed into her home in the wake of her divorce with fellow "Married to Medicine" star, Dr. Gregory Lunceford. Bravo TV disclosed back in December that Webb was close to finalizing the divorce proceedings with Dr. Lunceford.
She revealed that the realization of her divorce was "tough" at first, but with time, she was beginning to enjoy being single and living her best life.
The "My First Love" star also confessed that she and Gregory don't keep in touch unlike other cast members of the reality show.
