Hughley accompanied the image with a caption where he noted that it felt surreal that his first child is about to have her first baby. The comedian added what he would like to be called by his grandkid. He wrote:

"It’s surreal when your first baby is about to have her first baby!! My name ain’t gonna papa my name is gonna be #Him #TeamDl."


The pregnancy news was met with positive reactions from fans and followers who took to the comments section to leave congratulatory notes for Hughley and his daughter. 

Several other users also noted that Hughley would be a great grandfather and his grandchild would be lucky to have the comedian in his life. In addition to comments, the post has garnered several likes from fans and followers. So far, it has over five thousand likes on Instagram. 

Following Hughley's diagnosis, his co-hosts on radio tested positive for the novel coronavirus.


The news of Ryan's pregnancy comes about a year after she married her husband, Alejandro Shepard. The couple tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by their family.

The pregnancy news also comes amid a challenging year for Hughley who tested positive for the novel coronavirus back in June. The comedian was diagnosed after he collapsed while performing on stage.

Following Hughley's diagnosis, his co-hosts on radio tested positive for the novel coronavirus. His son Kyle also tested positive for the virus. They have, however, long since recovered and are back to leading their normal lives.

In addition to Kyle and Ryan, Hughley is also father to a daughter named Tyler. He shares his three kids with his wife, Ladonna, whom he married in 1986.

Outside of his family life, Hughley also has a great career and is most famous for his role in the stand-up comedy movie, "The Original Kings of Comedy." 

Whether on or off the stage, Hughley has enjoyed a fantastic life. He is a successful comedian, an amazing father, and there is no doubt that he will be a great grandfather to his grandbaby.
