Antonia “Toya” Wright is a mother for the 2nd time at age 34.

The TV personality gave birth the other day and strategic snaps of Reign/Reignbeaux are already all over social media. Wonder if her new baby daddy will be posting tons of photos of the bundle of joy too?

The one who we didn’t expect to react has reacted…

Her-ex-husband Mickey “Memphitz” Wright publicly congratulated Toya and her oldest daughter Reginae Carter on his Instagram account on Monday.

“Congrats T & NaE. Reign is beautiful. Happy to see you both happy,” he wrote.

Aw. That is nice! He has come a long way.

Memphitz and Toya reportedly called it quits a few years back; Toya filed for divorce in July of 2016. He once threatened her, demanding that she stop using his last name...which she seems to have completely ignored.

In other news, the rapper is going to be appearing on the new season of Iyanla: Fix My Life, apparently.

Check out the trailer:

Back in April 2017, Toya spoke with ShuString Magazine, explaining that she had taken steps in order to increase her chances of conceiving a child, "Now that I have had the surgery my chances of having a healthy full term pregnancy is greater”.

An insider had dished on the reaction to the baby news; "Toya and her family are thrilled that she's pregnant!" 

Toya announced her pregnancy in late September 2016 by way of an Instagram clip (which also featured Reginae)…and later revealed that she was having a girl.

Hello world! I’m Reign Ryan Rushing I was born on 2/8/2018 at 3:04 pm. My nickname is Reignbeaux 🌈you know that beautiful thing that comes after the Rain.....Welcome to my page.

Her pregnancy seems to have been pretty low-key, all in all.

"It’s been great,"” she noted. "I haven’t been sick at all. I am full of energy so that’s a blessing."
She once told, "I enjoyed learning and watching her pattern. I did a lot of cool videos, I loved my maternity shoot, my gender reveal and my fabulous shower!"

Toya has also claimed that she will not be bringing this daughter directly into the spotlight, "Honestly I have learned over the years to keep as much of my personal life as private as I can. That being said, while I do not plan to hide her, I do plan to shield her from the negative energy that can often come from social media."

A huh.

"I would love to have a baby boy, but I think I am good with my two girls. Two is enough for me. I will just make sure she has lots of play dates."

The biological father of Toya's new baby is Atlanta businessman Robert “Red” Rushing, 30.

Toya had also announced that she had a new project in the works called "2nd Time Around". Oh Toya. Never change.
