Congrats are in order for singer and actress LeToya Luckett-Walker and her husband, Dallas businessman Tommicus Walker.
The couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter they named Gianna Iman Walker, on Jan 4.
Luckett-Walker announced the news via Instagram, sharing a sweet photo of the couple’s hands embracing their newborn daughter’s fingers, which Luckett-Walker captioned: “Gianna Iman walker Born || 1/ 4/19 7 Lbs 15oz”.
“Our lives are forever changed,” the Greenleaf star wrote on Twitter when she shared the news.
After being introduced by a mutual friend, the couple began dating and announced their engagement in August 2017. Just four months later they were married in a lavish ceremony in Austin. The happy couple honeymooned in The Maldives and Dubai before coming home and settling into their new life together in Texas.
After the New Year, the newlyweds didn’t waste any time making their dreams of expanding their family come true: In June 2018, with a little help from her stepdaughter Madison Walker, 6, Luckett-Walker announced that she and her husband were expecting their first child together in an adorable Instagram video.
Luckett-Walker, who co-stars on the current season of T.I. and Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle with her husband, admitted early on that this was a love she’d always prayed for and the came to life.
“I’m not saying that you shouldn’t get out there and go for yours,” the former Destiny’s Child singer told ESSENCE exclusively in July 2018. “But I am saying, when you really hand the reigns over [to Him] and get out of the driver seat of your life, and really allow God to step in and do what he’s been doing all along and get out of the way, then boom…it happens. So maybe a couple months after I threw that list out and said, ‘God, I’m giving this over to you’, it happened.”
“You pray for things, and you know we all have our wishlists, but I’ve learned to pray for whatever’s in your will,” Luckett added. “And I found myself throwing out my list that I had held dear to my heart for several years of what I wanted out of a man and what I felt I wanted to do in the next few years, and I ended up throwing that list out. Because I was like, alright Lord, if that ain’t in your plan and that ain’t in your will, I don’t want it. And it kind of took the reigns out of my hand. I got sick of running into the wall.”
Congrats to the Walkers on their new addition!
