Actress Kim Fields is a mommy for the second time around.
The Facts of Life actress and husband Christopher Morgan welcomed their second son, Quincy Xavier Morgan, on Tuesday, Dec. 3, reports PEOPLE.
Baby Quincy weighed in at 8 lbs., 8 oz.
The couple( who married in 2007) are already parents to son Sebastian Alexander, 6½.
“We are so blessed and grateful to God for this newest gift to our family.”
Ciara is in full wedding planning mode.
The singer chatted with PEOPLE about her upcoming wedding to fiance Future.
“It’s going to be two parts,” Ciara told PEOPLE at the People’s Choice Awards nominations announcement last week. “We’re both from Atlanta and we have so many family and friends … it’s going to be hard to get everybody in one place, so we’re going to do a celebration part and a wedding.”
Ciara, 28, is making sure every little wedding detail is perfect. And though she doesn’t seem like the type, the singer believes she will be a Bridezilla.
“I think I’ll be part bridezilla, I’m not going to lie,” she said. “But I want to be a happy one! I still want it to be a fun process, but I want the dress to be perfect, I want the cake to be perfect, I want the food to be perfect.”
Ciara also plans to show off her curves, but still keep it classy. “I want to go a little vintage, a little throwback classic almost like my mom was walking down the aisle,” she said.
Future, 29, is just as meticulous when it comes to details, but he’s decided to take a back seat and let his future wife spearhead the planning.
“He gets to have his say and then he lets me go off and do my thing,” she said. “I know he’s going to want the fun part to be right. We’re both looking forward to it.”

Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta newcomers DJ Traci Steele and DJ Babey Drew cover the new issue of Rolling Out magazine. The pair may no longer be romantically involved, but the love they have for one another is still there. Check out some of what they had to say below.
How did you guys first meet?
DJ Babey Drew: I met her while interviewing her for a position at the radio station.
DJ Traci Steele: But I was already engaged to someone else at the time.
Traci: Someone had wrecked his car and she had to take him to work every day. And we had a lot in common. We’re both West Indian and he would play reggae in the car on the way to work.
Drew: We’ve always juggled our business and personal lives from day one.
Drew: I taught her how to make money. She taught me how to keep it. If I didn’t teach her how to make money she would not be the hustler she is. And if she didn’t teach me how to keep money, I wouldn’t have money today. It was like Ebony and Ivory. Peaches and Cream.
Was this a case of opposites attract?
Drew: We’re definitely different. This is definitely opposites attract. Because she’s loud and rambunctious. And I’m laid back. I’m not quiet at all. I’m just laid back. And to be honest, she’s the only woman who could just be yelling and I’m just like [waves his hand in a dismissive way] … Every other woman that has yelled at me in a relationship …
Traci: It pisses him off …
Drew: When they yell at me, it’s over. With her, it’s kind of funny.
When did the relationship get serious?
Traci: I was like 24, because I had bought my first house. And you took me to your parents. And your mother grilled the hell out of me. I don’t think she liked me … at first …
Drew: My mother don’t like anybody at first …
Traci: And we were driving home from meeting your mother and you said “I want you to be my girl.” And I was like “wow” [laughing].
Drew: You have elephant memory because I don’t remember any of it. I remember, but not the details.
Her: And I was like “OK.” And then you moved in.
Her: I was 24 when we started dating. I was 27 when I got pregnant. And I was 28 when I had my son.
