Ron DeVoe Shamari Fears

Congratulations to New Edition original member Ron DeVoe. The 49-year-old Atlanta businessman and his faithful wife, former singer Shamari Fears, are expecting their first child together!

Fears, an original member of the R&B girl group Blaque, is expecting her first baby at the high risk age of 37.

Doctors recommend having babies by age 30 to avoid complications of a high risk pregnancy due to the advanced age of the eggs. Pregnancy risks are higher for mothers age 35 and older. The risks include Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), gestational diabetes, stroke, autism, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, the potentially deadly eclampsia, and more.

The couple apparently waited until they were financially stable and emotionally prepared for a new addition to their family.

"GOD has blessed us with the greatest! ---> A #NEWEDITION TO OUR FAMILY," Ron gushed on Instagram on Wednesday.

Thanks to loyal reader MissMiami305 for the tip.

    I know from a medical standpoint its considered high risk. Hell I'm 5'1 and 150 lbs and considered obese from a "medical stand point." My point is its bs especially when women in their 50's are still having healthy babies and technology is more advanced from when they conducted these bs studies :coffee:

Blaque had a few songs back in the day that were kinda cute and head bob worthy. And they were in Bring It On with Gabby. Sad what happened to Natina Reed.

  • imright

    49??? ok ok?????

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Sandy there are plenty over 35 and some 50, who have had healthy babies, especially with today's medicine. There have been healthy babies born to women this age without today's medicine.

    Stop that!

  • Educatedandstaypetty

    High risk my foot my mom had her 3rd baby at 47. She said my dad asked for a paternity test we died lol.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They are equally yoked and she's a submissive woman who lets her husband be the man of the house. Some of you can learn a few things from this highly favored couple.

  • SpiceGirl

    awwww that is so sweet...congrats to them both.

  • Strong White Woman

    No not at all. It's been maybe 20 years?? I couldn't remember if the hyenas attacked that baby or not? Mornin?

  • missmiami305

    Lmao at your daddy. Omg I would die if I got pregnant unexpectedly after 40. Hell even now.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    What I say wrong up top? I was irked at folks making negative comments. Don't come on here messing with me today!! I been good so far! LOL

  • Ni Ni

    Congratulations!!! Ronnie has lead a healthy lifestyle. They will be fine. Ronnie seems like such a positive person.

    I like that he was able to put his pride to the side and went and got a skill when the group reached a low point which let to his own real estate business. I enjoy his mothers dailt inspirational messages. They are some of my favorite retweets. Congrats!!!

  • Phillybruh

    Who knows it may change how they look at things.

  • tintin

    my mother had my brother at 43. he's normal. i see 16 year old have disabled kids so does it mean having babies too young is high risk, i hate these medical stat crap

  • Missy

    Lisa Nicole is such a snoozefest.??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Again, you don't know if they are healthy or not. You don't know if they have visual acuity problems or hearing problems or are autistic. These are issues known to affect babies born from old eggs.

  • missmiami305

    Valid point. I have seen it happen.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Im not talking about the movie lol :chase: But 20yrs...damn its been that long since its release *counts fingers and toes* Good Morn-Ting :)

  • Missy

    She favors Monica in this pic.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    All mine were and are healthy and I was young, my aunt who was the "right age" bracket got 1 who is mentally disabled.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    These medical stats exist for a reason though. I'ts a known fact that the rate of miscarriage is higher for women over 35.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I know folks who had babies late in life and they are healthy as hell, so there is the possibility.

    But are we admitting that Little Boy Orange Face could be, since his momma and daddy was old eggs and sperm filled?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Those same issues can derive from those bogus vaccines that contain mercury, formaldehyde, aluminum, etc. but from a
    "medical standpoint" you're supposed to give them to your child knowing they're toxic LOL Sometimes we have to step away from the books (script) and use some common sense. Technology has grown significantly in the medical field over the years and 37 should not be considered high risk. Now 20 years ago I would've had a different opinion. This woman is 60 and just had twins and they're healthy. She contributed it to "power of medicine and a healthy body." https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bb7e3f244f0e25db4457a6cd065a589e7a0404c68c17130ddf237c34c3f475fd.jpg

    I LOVE THIS POST.

    Beautiful couple. Ron Devoe aged beautifully. He looks great as an elder man and his wife is his beautiful compliment. 50 is the new 30, with married, older, wiser, prepared parents as the new and welcomed trend.

    Bless this marriage and their new edition.

  • the guest

    No negativity intended at all, but he is one of those rare people that look better older than they did in their youth. He looks better than most 25 year old brothers. He must eat healthy and drink lots of water.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So you think a child should be an experiment?
    Wow.

    "The high risk age of 37"!?! Wishing them a healthy and safe pregnancy would be too much after congratulating them. She just had to point out the sad and unfortunate complications that can happen (at any age ...mind you).
