Tessica Brown, the woman who went viral last month after getting Gorilla Glue stuck in her hair, is pregnant. According to TMZ, Brown is expecting her first child with her fiancé Dewitt Madison and the baby will have nine siblings in their family. Brown and Madison both have children from previous relationships, with Brown being a mom of five and Madison having four children. The outlet reported the two were engaged last June.
Brown, 40, made headlines last month after she posted a video of her hair after going a month with Gorilla Glue stuck in it on TikTok. She gained millions of followers and had to go to the emergency room after the adhesive wouldn’t come out. Eventually, Beverly Hills surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng reached out and offered to remove the glue from her hair for free.
Since then, Brown has been keeping her followers updated on her life, and now, her family’s latest edition.
In the caption posted to Instagram announcing her pregnancy, Brown wrote “Blessed.”
Brown told the outlet she’s working on embracing her natural hair and is encouraging others to do the same.
“I just want everybody, the women my age, the women older than me, the little children, my children –– we need to really realize our hair really don’t make us,” Brown said. “If I would’ve just left out of here without spraying [the Gorilla Glue], it would’ve gotten messed up, I wouldn’t have went through all of this. It’s not worth it at all,” she added.
