Da Brat came out to the world thanks to the support she received from Jesseca Dupart, to whom she is now married. The pair have embarked on a journey to parenthood, but it has not been easy. Hear what they had to say.
Da Brat and her wife Jesseca Dupart recently appeared on the "Tamron Hall Show," where they opened up about their IVF journey and the complications they had to face while attempting to expand their family.
The pair got married in February 2022 in a dreamy ceremony complete with white carriages and fabulous wedding dresses.

When Hall asked Dupart, who comes from a conservative background, how she felt after the wedding, knowing that she was living by her own rules after having come out and married the love of her life, the rap queen stated that she felt like she could "conquer everything."
Dupart was the first female rapper ever to go platinum, and it made her feel like there was little she could not do if she really put her mind to it.
Later, Hall asked if they were having a baby; Dupart revealed that they had not spoken about it on social media because they had experienced some turbulence on their journey.
Dupart seemed really emotional as she spoke, but Da Brat picked up on it and was quick to comfort her, telling her it was okay before Hall stepped in to share her own experience with IVF.
WHAT ARE DA BRAT'S BEST SONGS?
Da Brat is best known for her songs "Funkdafied" and "Heartbreaker." Her career began at MTV, leaving a good impression on the judges who watched her perform on "Yo! MTV Raps" in 1992.
Following her win, she got introduced to Jermaine Dupri, who got her signed to his label, after which she made a name for herself with her "Funkdafied" album that went platinum.
Her song "Funkdafied" peaked at 11 on the billboard and spent 46 weeks on the chart, while "Anuthatantrum" spent 20 weeks and peaked at 20 after it was released in 1996.
Her other two songs that made it to the billboard were "Unrestricted" and "Limelight, Luv & Niteclubz," which peaked at 20 and 17, respectively.

Da Brat and Dupart met in 2017 at one of the product mogul's Miracle Drops events in Atlanta, but even though they connected, they lost touch. When they reconnected, they played love games until it finally clicked.
Two years later, they were dating but had to keep it low-key because nobody knew that Da Brat preferred women until during the ESSENCE fest later that year when Da Brat decided she was done hiding.
Finally, they went public in 2020 after Dupart gifted her a Rolls Royce for her birthday, and shortly after, Dupart popped the big question.
DA BRAT AND JESSECA DUPART'S IVF JOURNEY
Earlier this year, the pair revealed they were expecting their first child together. Per what Dupart said during the interview with Tamron Hall, some unfortunate events have sidelined their plans. It would have been Da Brat's first child but Dupart's fourth.
Speaking about the topic, Dupart revealed that she wanted Da Brat to have a child of her own because she had never experienced it, even though she is the "most nurturing person she knows."
The complications Dupart mentioned had reportedly landed her in the hospital multiple times, but the pair have stated that they will not give up until they achieve their goal.
