Charmaine Walker of Black Ink Crew: Chicago fame announced major news over the past few days: she is pregnant and officially off the market.

Walker dropped by PEOPLE TV’s Reality Check on Monday to announce she is now married to Nick Bey. The news comes one day after Walker announced on Instagram that she and Bey would soon be parents.

“My fiancé Nick is no longer my fiancé,” Walker told Reality Check. “We didn’t break up, we actually got legally married. We decided that we just wanted to be together. It was just kind of like we’re already engaged, so we’re obviously going to get married. Why wait? You know, obviously the cameras play a big part in our lives, so we just wanted to do something for us.”

They managed to pull it off well. Now divulging their news has Walker feeling “so great” and even more legit as a married woman.

“I feel like a wife,”  she said. “And now I feel like a mom.”

On Sunday, Walker took to IG to reveal she is pregnant with her first child, and the baby is due on March 12, 2020.

Walker uploaded an ultrasound video and captioned it: “Expecting Baby Bey March 2020. Shoutout to Momma Glenda. She was so excited. The night before she unexpectedly passed away she said: “I still can’t believe my baby is having a baby!” I’ll never forget those words. This has been an emotional roller coaster but I’m blessed to be bringing life into this world. #BabyBey.”

Bey also announced the baby news on his IG account, by posting a video and photo of himself smiling while holding his wife’s tummy. In the video, he is singing to #BabyBey through mama’s tummy and in the pic he captioned, “Y’all think it’s a boy or girl?! #6months.”

 Walker added to Reality Check that she is 25 weeks pregnant which means “five-and-a-half months or six-and-a-half months, I haven’t figured it out.”

Ryan Henry, who also stars in Black Ink Crew, says he saw it coming.“I just kind of knew it was coming, so I wasn’t surprised. I knew how they felt about each other; I knew how their relationship was going and I knew how her family wanted a baby,” Henry told Reality Check, “so it wasn’t no surprise to me.”

This happy news could not have come at a better time. Walker lost her mother, Glenda, last in October. Congrats to the happy couple.
