“I think the surprise of knowing what you are going to have on that special day you give birth is prob the best surprise you can ever have! So to clarify what Venus said, I am always joking with my sisters to see what favours I can get them to do for me next. If I want something from one of my sisters I say baby Venus, baby Lyn or baby Isha needs it. I did not grow up with any brothers, only sisters and we all say “she” more than “he”. Unless I’m joking with my Dad or Alexis and I’m trying to con something out of them too. Hey I’m the youngest of 5 I’ve always tricked all of them what can I say!”
